Disclaimer: Ag, when is this going
to end? well anyway, all characters UNKNOWN are mine, that

What? you're sick of this? well ok, I'll shut up.
The story's gonna end soon (and soon the whole truth is gonna
come out! ;-) And I have been planning for the next one which
is going to be definitely different in my other fics, for
it to be not boring since its like I'm writing fics about
having normal lives and sort of things like that. I haven't
said this for a long time but really, all I want from you
people is feed back =).
No Return, No Exchange
Remy forced up on his bed, nervous sweat all over his body
and face. He panted and gasped for enough air to calm him
down and his loud-thumping heartbeat.
He found the glass of water he had prepared that last night
and took a huge gulp. He settled for a moment as he leaned
against the wall against his bed and rested for a while.
Morning rays shone to him from his window, he sighed for
relief as found it was already morning.
Remy stretched up, taking all the weariness and burden away
from his body and pulled out his quilt.
Dat's terrible, one of de most terrible dreams ...
That's it for him, he dreamt of Georgia marrying that billionaire
felony Chris, in which he hoped she wouldn't.
After dressing up for work, Remy walked throught the cool,
busy streets of New York, arriving at a small cafe shop and
decided to take a breakfast there.
Remy would always check the news in the newspaper shop just
He saw a very familiar face in the newspaper, after throwing
a nickel to the newspaper boy, he glanced at the newspaper
and read the large bold words that quickly broke his heart
ROCKEFELLER BILLIONAIRE TO WED COMMONER GIRLFRIEND
With Georgia's picture in it ...
Remy carried himself a heavy heart, he can't describe what
he's feeling .
Good Dieu why does it hav' ta be dis way ...
Unrevealingly fast, Remy realized he was already in the Rockefeller
factory, it was only six thirty in the morning, too early
for work, to his wide shock he saw Georgia coming out.
"Hi James! it's a good t'ing you're here!" Georgia
smiled at him sweetly.
Remy gave out a pitiful smile and returned to its state.
"Uh ... James? is there anythin' wrong?"
"Uh, no, um ... had a drowsy night, dat's it, what brings
ya ta be so early heah?" Remy asked.
"Well" Georgia sighed. "Ah ... me an' Chris
need someone ta drive us on our way ta t' airport and help
us with some t'ings heah. t' driver's out an' Ah guess you're
our only hope"
"Airport? ..." Remy stammered confusingly. "W-Where
are ya goin'" It's hopeless LeBeau, m'be she an' de
guy gonna be wed somewhere far ...
"Nah, Ah ain't wit' him, he had a business trip in Mexico
for a week" Georgia's face become sad. "Ah'm gonna
be all alone again ... "
Before Remy could talk Georgia interrupted fast. "Ah
really hope y' could help me get the luggages in Chris's car
and drive us in t' airport, if y' really won't mind, we need
"S-Sure ... "
They were near the airport, Chris has a serious face as he
talks in his cellphone. Georgia looks at her watch as he continued
He remained silent all the way assisting Chris with the luggages
and some things, as he was leaving, Remy caught the sight
of Chris's own plane and returned to Chris and Georgia's last
conversation, and tried to snatch some words ...
"You're gonna call me Ok?" Georgia squirmed.
"Y' know I would, call me in anything you need, I think
you should take a vacation."
"No Chris, Ah'll be fine, y' had to be goin' now."
"Yes Georgia, good-bye" and they did the fake thing
again. "I'll be calling you then." Chris smiled
and gave a smile of gratitude to Remy, Georgia had with her
a sad smile.
After he left, Georgia sighed once again and looked at Remy.
"Let's go home James"
Remy nodded and escorted her along the way, and at the car,
Georgia finally recognized and saw the sad and angry look
"Ok James, what's goin' on, are ya mad at me or somethin'?"
"Am not Georgia, I just got a lousy mornin'."
"Ah don' believe you, tell me what's goin' on ... please."
Remy sighed and decided to finally let it all out. "Are
you an' Chris really going to be wed?"
Georgia's face was priceless, she had on a confused and bitter
look. "W-Where did ya heard that?" She said trembing.
"Why in de newspaper ... "
Georgia threw on an unspeakable devastating look. "N-Newspaper
"I even got it here." Remy showed her.
Georgia's face surprisingly reddened after seeing it. "Those
cursed press dogs!" Georgia hit the windshield ... almost
breaking it ...
"W-What do y'mean?"
"It ain't true! Yes Ah'll say t' truth that he proposed
t' me last night ... but what Ah told him is not that."
Remy stopped the car in the side road nearing the company
and faced Georgia, "You ... you didin't agree?"
"Ah didn't "Georgia turned away. "Ah still
love him but Ah told him Ah need more time."
Remy felt relieved or just a feeling of happiness and security
he can't describe.
"Ah can't believe those ... "
"I ... I'm sorry, didn't mean to ... "
"It's ok James" Georgia sat up straight and calmed
down. "Is ... Is that all you're grumblin'?"
Remy was quite embarassed. "Um ... yeah, just um ...
concerned Uhhhhhh .... " Remy tried to figure a rather
"Ah said it's ok, it's nice ta know you've cared ...
Remy let out a grin and decided to stop talking.
Soon it was night, it was fast for Rogue, she spent most
of her day supposedly down, but James had always lightened
her up and spent with her lunch and snack time. James told
her he'll stay in the factory that night in part of the overtime
group to fix some deliveries to be made the next day and that's
up to one thirty A.M. or so. Sometimes, weirdly, she wished
he was there.
It was already past midnight, Rogue was waiting and expecting
a call from Chris, but he never called.
Rogue glanced to clock to see its one o'clock a.m. Everyone
was probably sleeping now.
Or so she thought ...
Rogue decided to get a glass of water when she heard two
people in a conversation just down the living room.
Mr. an' Mrs. Rockefeller? what are they doin' awake this
Chris's parents are taking champagne while talking. Rogue
chose not to go down for a while when she snatched some few
words in the conversation.
"This is all baloney Adam," Adam is the name of
Chris's father. "I told you your plan is not going to
work, some fool just got in the plan, Ralph's plan was even
better, that Georgia girl should be in bars now!" Mrs.
Rockefeller said profoundly.
M-Me ... in bars?
Rogue should have known, Chris's parents are up to something
despite their goody nice ways...
Rogue crouched down the balcony of the stairs and listened.
"And worse enough, that cursed Albrant boy had just
admitted himself in the crime! Despite the threats we gave."
"Oh God ... " Rogue gasped softly as her heart
"I know Claire, I know, so it didn't work, but it should
have work without that LeBlanc man coming into the scene!"
Mr. Rockefeller shot back.
Rogue felt hot tears in her eyes, of anger ... she doesn't
Ah can't believe this ... Ah trusted them an' Ah just
realized they were in this robbery ...
"Lower down your voice Adam, we only have to accept
it, the plan had been well, the alarms off with the girl going
down and nearly accused for the crime and got her out of Chris's
arms, the LeBlanc guy spoiled it all"
It echoed to Rogue's mind as she felt herself angry as her
blood boils. The robbery crime was all a set-up! And she nearly
fell in it, but James had saved her.
Rogue felt something she never felt in the last two years,
she wanted to break out, shout and attack. Anger was still
ruling her body, tears still falling, she wanted to fight
But she didn't ... Rogue rushed to her room swiftly slamming
the door ...
"What was that?" Mr. Rockefeller stood up and glared
"Oh nothing Adam, don't be so paranoid, it was the wind
Rogue fell in her bed and ended up crying, she was angry,
she had never felt so much anger in her life. She wanted to
scream ... She didn't want to live in there anymore ...
She didn't want to be with this family as long as she may
She felt no love for Chris, she doesn't know why. Rogue wanted
to take revenge in all the things they've done. Costed hers,
James and Ralph's life.
As much as Rogue wanted to fight, she controlled herself.
She grabbed her old green sports bag she always used for going.
She slammed it with full force on the bed and pulled her cabinet
handle and pulled all her clothes in the hanger with the clothes
in her drawers. Rogue picked a purple long sleeved shirt with
her jeans and dressed up. After packing up, she tucked everything
away in her bag and pulled her blue jacket. After checking
everything, Rogue wiped up her tears, as her cheeks are flaring
She doesn't care whether its too cold outside, she just have
to get out of that miserable place. When she opened the balcony's
glass doors from her room, she heard a ring ...
It rang thrice ... Rogue decided to accept the call.
Rogue slowly lift the receiver up her ear and tried to recover
a while. "H-Hello ?... "
"Hi Georgia! sorry if I called up late, I know you're
"Ah ... It's Ok ..."
"You sound hoarse darling, are you Ok?"
Rogue paused. "Ah ... Ah'm fine ... "
"I'm glad, the meeting's going to start tomorrow, I'm
resting in this nice hotel here in Santa Fe .. "
"That's nice ..."
There was a pause. "Are you sure you're Ok Georgia?"
"Ah am ... Ah ... decided ta hav' a vacation for a while
... visit mah friends in Salem Center..."
"Oh sure, is everything Ok with my parents there?"
Rogue shut her eyes and tried to ease the anger. "Uh
... Yeah ... fine ... Ah'll be leavin' ... t'mmorow."
"Ok, I'll be calling you on your cell phone."
Oh nice one Chris, Ah ain't bringin' it "Yeah."
"Well, you should rest now Georgia, talk to you tommorow,
After nearly banging the phone, Rogue thought for a while
in where she's going. She was reminded of James in the office.
She glanced at the clock, it was nearly two o' clock... but
she decided to call anyway.
She punched down the number and heard seven faint rings.
M'be he left after all ...
"Who de ... "Remy yawned as he waited the phone
to be out after ten rings. He was closing down the factory
door when the phone rang.
There was a short pause.
"'lo James ..."
Remy was quite shocked. Dat voice ... I swore ...
"It's Georgia ... Ah'm really glad ya're still theah"
her voice was hoarse and bland.
Oh ... "You Ok? Why did ya called?"
"Um ...Ah ... Ah'll explain later ... couldja meet me
outside t' company? Ah need ta see ya"
She sounded urgent and serious. "Uh ..sure"
Remy waited in the dark mist of the night. It was very unlike
of Georgia to be like that. Especially tonight when it was
been dead cold and silent. It wasn't snowing but its just
He knew something was wrong ...
One meter ahead, he saw a figure walking near to him. It
was Georgia all right, her hair untied and uncombed, she's
wearing clothes unpreferably a Billionaire's girlfriend would
She had a sports bag with her.
"Georgia? What's wrong?"
Without any warning Georgia had fell onto him embracing him
and pouring Remy all her desparation. Remy knew she was crying
"Sil vous plait Georgia! what's going on?" Remy
embraced Georgia back to calm her, but she won't stop crying.
But Remy heard the muffled words in her.
"Ah hate him, Ah hate them all ..."
"Mon Dieu Georgia what are you thinkin' what's goin'
on? that Chris cheated on you?"
Georgia shook her head many times and finally faced him,
she is beet red her green eyes flashing with anger and desparation.
"Ah'm sorry James, Ah don' know what Ah'm doin' but
Ah just hav' ta see you ... Ah need ya" Georgia explained
in her hoarse voice.
" Dere now " Remy enclosed her in an embrace, patting
her back. "Y' can talk to me later, but in de meantime
let's find a place to stay..." Thinking Georgia might
be uncomfortable in his apartment, he had some spare cash
for another motel to stay for the both of them.
And learn what really happened.
It was undoubtedly cold, so she helped James with the cash
to move on a more profitable place for them that had a fire
place to warm them up. Rogue sipped in her hot chocolate James
had prepared her. She tightened the grip of the quilt she
had around her, she didn't care anyway in the dead cold; she
just need to rest and settle things up.
"Georgia? you fine now?" James's voice came up.
"Yeah ... Ah am ... "
"Fine enough to talk"
Rogue shuddered but she decided to let it all out. "Uh-huh
"So what happened?" James with his coffee sat next
Rogue took a sigh and told him everything that happened.
James had with him an angry look.
"Dat explains what Ralph said ta me, dose bastards ...
"Ah should hav' known it was their playin' ... its all
"Why blame yourself?"
"Ah shouldn' hav' come in t' mansion, this whole t'ing
wouldn't hav' happened."
"Not yours Georgia, de Rockefellers, blame dem"
James remarked and turned to the fire place across him.
Rogue became silent for a while, shaking her mug a little
and waiting for James to say something again.
"Do ya t'ink dat Chris might be involved in dis?"
"No, No he wouldn't be ... " Rogue said immediately.
"Den why did ya say ya hated him?"
Rogue paused and was silent again. "Well, for urgin'
me ta be wit' him in t' mansion an' ... for leavin' me defenseless
at theah .. not exactly his fault, Ah was just out of control
then ..." That's so naive o' me.
"He probably didn't know Georgia, I know how hard is
to be betrayed"
James stared at her with a queasy look at his eyes.
"Sorry" Rogue pressed her lips on the blanket around
her. She crossed her fingers together upon seeing the diamond
ring Chris gave her as an engagement ring. Rogue was distracted
for a moment and studied every edge and spark it has.
Rogue wiped another tear at her eye as she sniffed off and
turned on a promising look.
James was shocked when she removed it from her middle finger.
"No ... Ah cain't do it ... Ah don' deserved to be his
wife" Rogue dropped it off the carpet and cried softly
on the blanket as James gave her a warm embrace to calm her.
Remy brushed Georgia's brown mane as she cried her heart
out. She was never this sad and desperate. Remy felt pity
on her... to be in that kind of situation.
"Hush chere, everythin's gonna be fine
girl" Remy patted Georgia's back.
Georgia nudged a little and seemed to be wanting more of
Remy's comfort as she comfortably lay to his chest staring
bleak on the fireplace across her.
After a moment of calming, she faced Remy and spoke. "James
... really, Ah wanna thank ya for everythin' ya've done, it
meaned a lot ta me"
"Why thank me? I would surrender myself for you Georgia
... I'll always be dere for you"
"Promise" Remy squeezed Georgia's hand, he doesn't
care what is going on between the two of them, its just he
felt something new ... something he haven't felt before since
Rogue left him.
He doesn't know but he feels like heaven.
"Ya know James, ya reminded me of someone Ah used to
love so much, someone who means a lot ta me"
That caught Remy's attention. "Really?"
"Yeah ... Oh why Am Ah sharin' ya mah history, its just
Ah'm so sad right now ... "
"I don' mind"
"Well actually" Georgia gave Remy a tender smile."Ah
mind, mah life's so tragic if ya would heard it, Ah don' want
ya ta feel sorry for me."
Remy was struck in a moment and said nothing, he didn't know
she would be like that, a princess in a dark past.
"Yeah" Remy faced Georgia.
"Ya don' mind ... If Ah sleep in your arms?"
"No ... go ahead, I'll be holdin' ya when you wanted
Remy finally saw a contented and an assured smile on Georgia's
The long drastic week is finally over. Chris had surprisingly
returned early. Soon everything was quite under control. Rogue
entered Chris's office room and smiled at him in greeting.
But he ignored her and she saw he has no mood to be happy;
he had a very serious look in his face. He had someone in
the phone. Rogue decided to shut up.
"Well? Didn't I told you?" Chris's voice thundered
suddenly on the phone. Rogue finally realized the situation
was from the meeting he had. When he got home, he wasn't very
happy of the outcome of the meeting that's why he decided
to return early.
Rogue couldn't interrupt so she walked at Chris's back and
massaged his shoulders to calm him.
"I knew it! I knew it! Those stocks had to be delivered
soon!" Chris demanded, his face quite reddening.
Gawd, this is not good for his health "Chris
calm down" Rogue patted his back.
Between the conversation, James had knocked in to give the
coffee Chris asked.
Rogue accepted the tray of hot coffee and gave a smile of
thanks to James.
"What's goin' on?" James asked softly.
"Well ... "
Suddenly in no warning, Chris's body shook as if electrocuted
and he grabbed his chest.
"Oh mah Gawd Chris!" Rogue dropped the tray of
coffee, breaking the mug and splattering hot coffee on the
Before Rogue knew it, he fainted ...
"Oh no ... no ... Chris!" Rogue trembled as she
caught Chris from falling to the ground.
"Mon Dieu! Get him here! Quick!" James called
to the ground.
Rogue amazingly carried Chris easily on the floor where James
James alarmingly checked Chris's pulse. "Dammit, no
"Oh mah Gawd! Oh mah Gawd!" Rogue covered her face
and cried beneath it.
"He needs mouth ta mouth, do ya know how ta do it?"
James asked his face in full adrenaline rush.
"Yes but ... "
"Give 'im one! Hurry!" James offered her a position.
Now Rogue had felt the total hopelessness like she didn't
have before, all she wanted is this to be over.
Rogue desperately shook her head in closed eyes she doesn't
want to see. "Ah ... cain't ... "
"Why?! I mean, I'll teach ... "
"No ya don't understand!!! Ah cain't Ah just cain't!!!"
Rogue fired back.
"Good Dieu!! .... just why Georgia ?!!"
Rogue shook her head once again and let it all out.
"Ah cain't James ... Ah can't touch him!! Ah can't touch
