I.  "You're back, you're back!"

Rook gave him a disdainful look, "You saw me two weeks ago."

The boy stuck his tongue out at him, "That's really long ago!"

"Hmph," Rook turned back to fixing his Skimmer when Aerrow sat on the large rock close by, kicking his feet in the air.

"Remember what we talked about last time?"

"Enlighten me," Rook said blandly, frowning at his engine. There was some bad burns by the velocity crystal he used and it probably needed to be replaced...

"You said you'd take me flying remember?"

"Get the comman--get your father to do it," Rook said, wiping his forehead.

Aerrow frowned, "He's never around. You do it."

"No."

"Why not? You said yes last time!"

Had he? He couldn't remember. Days slipped past him too quickly.

"No means no," he retorted, doing a final wipe, "Now run off. Your father's probably looking for you."

Aerrow's eyes flashed angrily and he balled his tiny hands into fists, "I hate you!"

Rook watched the boy run away, quietly. Then, he turned back to his bike and pondered the expenses of buying a new engine.

I am intrigued! ...okay, maybe slightly more than intrigued, as I have had ideas of this kind of AU running around in my head since seeing the new opening. There will be more, I hope? :D

Also, there will never be another name in my head for the Dark Ace other than Rook. It just... FITS. I dunno.
There's more coming sadly. XD

I KNOW. It just fits and it scares me how well it FITS.
YAY! :D

Oh! I wanted to ask, what name are you going to give Aerrow's dad?
SOB THERE GOES MY LIIIIIIIIFE

I-I haven't thought that far ahead. GG ME. It'll come to me.
THERE GOES MY FUUUUTURE? Sorry. Sappy country song.

Oh. Well. If you need help. I may have one. Or two. Or a list.
I-i would totally give you this list... except that I remembered after posting that comment that the list had been on my laptop. Um. Before it died. So. No list. D: But I think my top choice for a name for him was Heron. I could be wrong, though.
