Buttercup has always had feelings for Butch, even though he's a villain working for Mojo. Even still they have been carrying on a secret affair for months, but what happens when Buttercup ends up pregnant. Will she tell Butch? Will her sisters find out?

Him escapes. Will he wreak havoc on our heroes?

Chapter Twelve: An Enemy Returns: Part One

The next morning Buttercup woke up early. Next to her, she found Butch sleeping soundly. He looked so sweet, like a like a little baby. She looked over at her ring, and then it hit her. The wedding wasn't just a dream. It really happened. She was content for the first time in her life, and it felt good.

She cuddled close to him and fell back asleep. Just as she drifted off the phone rang. She remained asleep, while Butch awoke and picked up the phone. He slid out of bed, putting on a pair of shorts while he answered it. It was his brother on the other end.

"Hey, Brick, what's going on?" he said just above a whisper. He didn't want to wake up Buttercup. He left the room and closed the door.

"Turn on the news, and you'll see," Brick said through the phone.

He walked into the living room and turned the television on low. He flipped onto the news. A news reporter started with a special report.

Late night, famed crime boss only known as Him escaped from jail last night, killing two jailhouse guards in the process. Officers Johnny Rinaldi and Philip Coen were the first to enter the scene. When questioned they just reported that Him simply disappeared. The city is in a panic at this recent development and fear for the Mayor's life.

Butch became white as a ghost seeing the news report. "Butch?" he brother called through the phone. "Hey, man, you okay?"

"Yeah, I think so," he said. "What are we gonna do?"

"Nothing for now," Brick said. "Unless Him wants us to find him we won't."

"It's not me I'm worried about," Butch said. "What if he...?"

"Hey, don't think that way," Brick said. "I'm worried about the girls too, but they can handle themselves."

"But Buttercup's pregnant," Butch said. "If anything happens to her or the baby..."

"Nothing's going to happen, Butch. We'll make sure of that."

"I wish I could believe that," Butch said. At that moment Buttercup came out into the living room. She was in her dark green silk robe that only went to just above her knee. "Brick, I gotta go." He ended the call and looked over at Buttercup. "I thought you were sleeping."

She came up to him. "I was, but I woke up and you were gone."

"The phone rang, and I didn't want to wake you." She kissed him sweetly as he led her over to the couch. "So, are you hungry?"

"Starving," she said. "Are you going to make me breakfast?"

"How about we order in?"

"Sounds great," she said as he picked up his phone and dialed the chuck wagon. They were the only place in town that would deliver. "And don't forget the chocolate strudel."

"You're kidding, right?" he asked. She shook her head in the negative. He ordered it anyway and rolled his eyes at her.

"It's for the baby." He just laughed. "Is that so funny?" She slapped him playfully.

Then he pinned her to the couch as she giggled. She squirmed a little underneath his weight, laughing the whole time. "Now, you're my prisoner," he said. He held her hands down and started to kiss her. "Any objections?"

She just sighed softly, as he continued. "Just one," she said.

"Just one?" he questioned. "Well, what is it?"

"I'm hungry," she said and laughed at him.

"So am I," he said seductively. "But if my baby needs to eat first, then I guess I can wait."

At that moment they heard the chime signifying someone was at the door. "Great. That must be that food."

She attempted to get off the couch and go for the door. "No way, baby," he said. "You're not going out there dressed like that."

He quickly put a shirt on and his green sweat pants and flew down to the sidewalk to see the delivery boy.

Buttercup noticed that remote control and clicked on the television. The news was still playing. She was about to change it when I special news bulletin came up.

"Him escaped," she said out loud. "Oh, my god, I wonder if Butch knows."

She got up from the couch and paced around the room. When Butch came back up, she tried to pretend everything was alright.

"Good news," Butch said, putting the Styrofoam food trays down on the coffee table. "They remembered your strudel."

"Great," she said, looking preoccupied. She sat back down on the couch. She rubbed her stomach lightly.

"Buttercup, are you alright?"

She looked up, snapping back to reality. "Oh, yeah, I'm fine. Let's eat."

"Wait," he said and sat down next to her. "Something's wrong. Tell me."

"I... ah... turned on the TV and saw the news. There was a special news bulletin."

"Oh, god, you know," he said.

"You knew about Him escaping, and you didn't tell me!" she shouted.

"I didn't want to upset you," he said. "I was going to tell you... eventually."

"Here I was trying to figure out a way to tell you," she said. She got up and paced around the room. "We have to do something. What if he comes after you again? He'll kill you. I know he will. I'm not going to stand around and watch you die." She was hysterical now.

"Buttercup, stop," Butch said, grabbing hold of her. "You need to calm down."

"I can't, not as long as he's out there," she said. "There's got to be a way to flush him out. The girls would know be by now. I think I'll give them a call." She felt suddenly dizzy and grabbed onto the arm of the couch.

"Buttercup," Butch called out and caught her before she could fall. "Hey, I want you to sit down and eat something."

"I'm fine," she said as she sat down on the couch. "It's just a little dizzy spell."

"Is that normal?" Butch asked her, while rubbing her back.

"Only when I don't eat," she said, but after hearing the news on Him she wasn't in the mood to eat.

"Then that does it," he said. "You're going to eat every bit of this food, even if I have to force feed you myself."

"You wouldn't dare," she said, glaring at him. His look remained serious. "Okay, I'll eat, but I won't like it."

Back at the Utonium house Brick had just made the announcement about Him's escape. Boomer and Bubbles were in shock, but Blossom didn't seem one bit surprised.

"I expected this," she said. "I knew Him wouldn't stay locked up for long."

"I agree," Brick said. "But this means that Butch could be in danger... and Buttercup and the baby. If he knows about them, he may know about the baby."

"How's that?" Blossom said. "This little tidbit wasn't in the paper."

"You can't keep anything from Him for very long. He always finds out. We know him a lot better than you girls do. We know how his mind works. He's out, and plotting revenge. I just know it. That means we're all in danger."

"So, what do we do?" Bubbles asked.

"We wait," Brick said. "If Him doesn't want to be found then there's no way to track him. So we wait and be cautious. That's means none of us goes anywhere alone."

"Well, that's fine with me," Blossom said. "Are you volunteering to be my protector?"

"Well, um..." Brick started to stutter, feeling all sweaty, until he heard his brother laughing at him. Brick threw him a nasty look and Boomer suddenly stopped laughing.

"Truth is, we need to protect each other," Brick said. He sat on the couch with the rest of the group. Boomer turned on a movie, hoping to get their minds off of things.

Some far place off Him remained hidden in his secret realm. "Those boys will regret ever turning on me. He looked into the watching pool and sent out a command. "Show me Butch!" he demanded.

At that moment he saw a scene. Butch was sitting in the living room of Mojo's place. Buttercup was next to him. He was holding her tenderly gently rubbing her stomach.

"Well, well, well," he said in his high pitched voice. "This is quite a revelation. My boy is going to be a father. Hmmmm..." His demeanor changed to a more sinister one. "Sorry, Butch, but that baby will be mine, along with Buttercup."

He laughed sadistically. "See you soon," he grunted.

"Hey," Butch said, as Buttercup rested her head on his shoulder. "How are you feeling?"

"I'm fine," she said. "I'm just worried, is all."

"Don't be," he said. "I promise I'll take care of everything. I'm the one who betrayed Him. You didn't have anything to do with it."

"I'm not going to let you face him alone." She looked into his eyes. "Did you know he would retaliate?"

"Yeah, I knew," Butch said. "No one betrays Him and lives."

"Then why? Why did you do it? It couldn't have been the threat of prison. So why?"

"For you," he said. He gently stroked her hair. "Everything I do is for you. I wanted to be someone you would be proud to be seen with. I just wanted to be with you, not sneaking around, but really be with you."

"You didn't have to risk yourself for me. I was always proud to be with you, and if something happened to you..." A tear came to her eye. "Hey, I may be a tough girl, but I couldn't bear the thought of losing you."

"That's not going to happen," he said. "We're going to have the rest of our lives to be together, until we're old and gray and can't even fly anymore. We'll have a ton of kids and grandkids and great-grandkids. Doesn't that sound nice?"

"Sounds great," she said and kissed him. "So don't you think of leaving me."

"I'm not going anywhere," he said, and lowered her onto the couch. "I love you, baby."

"Then show me," she said. She put her hands around his neck as he kissed her passionately.

Later that evening Bubbles was in the kitchen making dinner, since the boys had been staying over for the last few days, she thought it would be nice to make something special. She didn't notice that Boomer had come in, because she was singing sweetly.

"Nice tune," he said. She gasped, and then blushed as she realized he had been listening to her. "I didn't mean to scare you. It was just a beautiful tune."

"I always sing when I cook," she said as she flipped the steaks."

Boomer took a whiff. "Smells good," Boomer said. "I usually do the cooking at home."

"Same here," Bubbles said, while stirring the mashed potatoes. "The girls hate cooking, but I love it."

"So, can I help with anything? I'm not used to having so much free time before dinner."

"Okay," she said, walking towards him. "You could set the table. The plates are in that cupboard over there." She pointed to the one on the far left. She went back to the stove and added a few more seasonings to her mushroom sauce.

"So, what's for dessert?" Boomer asked.

"Leftover wedding cake," Bubbles and giggled.

"Why did I even ask?" he said, putting the plates out on the table. "So, where's your dad tonight?"

"Oh, just giving a lecture at the college, plus he's taking a trip to Cityville for some conference. So it's just the four of us tonight. "

"That's too bad," Boomer said. "I would have it to have been just the two of us."

That made Bubbles blush badly, but he was just as embarrassed having said it.

"Hey, you two," Blossom said coming into the kitchen. "What's going on in here?"

"Nothing," Bubbles said, looking a little guilty. "Nothing at all, just getting dinner ready is all."

She took the last two steaks out of the skillet and put them on the platter. She set the platter on the table right next her flowered centerpiece.

"Nothing?" Blossom said, accusingly. "Okay?"

"We're just about ready," Boomer said, but he was looking over at Bubbles when he said it.

Brick entered the kitchen and turned on the radio. It was the all-news station and Boomer groaned. "Hey, Brick, if you're going to turn on the radio, some music, please."

"We need to check the news just in case," Brick said. "Him's out there."

"Like listening to the news is going to help," Boomer said sarcastically. "Like some big explosion wouldn't be a tip off."

"Boys, stop arguing," Blossom said. "Checking the news is a good idea. Plus, if something bad is going down then the Mayor or Miss Bellum will call on the hotline."

"Unless Him wastes them before they get the chance," Brick said as he sat down in his chair.

"Brick, don't say that!" Bubbles shouted. "That's not even funny!"

"Hey, everybody, just calm down," Blossom demanded. "Brick, apologize."

"What?" he shouted. "For stating a truth? No way."

"Apologize, now," Blossom demanded.

"Damn," Brick said. "And I thought Buttercup was the one with the temper."

"You want to find out?" Blossom said, her pink eyes glowing darker than he ever had seen before.

"Okay, okay, I'm sorry," Brick said sarcastically, looking at Bubbles. She didn't say anything, because it looked like she was about to cry. Brick realized how hurt she was and softened his voice. "I'm sorry."

She half smiled and said sweetly, "I hope everyone's hungry."

Chapter Twelve: An Enemy Returns: Pasrt Two

Dinner was quiet, since everyone knew how much Brick wanted to listen to the news. Most of it was pretty boring according to his taste. The weather, sports news and the latest Hollywood gossip. Then I special report started.

This just in, the radio news reporter announced. A strange crater opened up in downtown Townsville right in front of city hall.

At that moment the hotline phone started to ring. Blossom flew into the living room to answer. She didn't need to know what the emergency was. "Yes, Mayor?" she said into the phone.

"No, Blossom, it's Miss Bellum. We need you at City Hall right away."

"I know," Blossom said. "We heard on the radio. We'll be right there." Blossom flew back into kitchen and saw the Bubbles and the boys were already up from their seats. "Let's go."

"Right, Blossom," Bubbles said and flew to the front door. Boomer followed her.

"Are you ready for this?" Blossom said to Brick.

"Fighting next to you?" Brick said. "Sounds great, so what are we waiting for?"

The both flew swiftly to the door where Bubbles and Boomer were eagerly awaiting.

Buttercup and Butch had just eaten dinner and were about to settle in for a nice quiet evening together. Buttercup hit the remote looking for a good movie.

"Come on," Butch said, trying to take the remote away from her. "Forget TV, let's make our own entertainment."

"No, I want to see if there's something on." She played keep away with the remote as she channel surfed, but he wrestled her onto the floor and pinned her down, but not before the remote got tossed cross the room.

"There," he said, pinning her arms down to the floor. "Now, you can't get away."

"So, what are you going to do with me?" she asked, giggling.

"This," he said and leaned down to kiss her. "So, do you surrender?"

"What do you think?" He slowly let go of her arms as she wrapped them around his neck. The television was still on when a special bulletin popped up.

This Kelvin Federman with a special report. A strange crater has formed in front of city hall where a lava pit has started to form. Citizens are cautioned to stay clear of the scene, according to the Mayor's assistant The Power Puff Girls have been called to the scene.

Both Buttercup and Butch looked up to the footage on the scene. "It's Him," Butch said, getting up and walking over to the television.

Buttercup got up off the floor and walked over to him. She put a hand on his shoulder. "What are we going to do?"

He looked over to see the concerned look on her face. "We are not going to do anything. You're staying here. I'll handle this."

"Like hell," she said. "I'm not going to let you go out there alone."

"Would you just stop arguing with me, and do as I say?"

"What?" she said. He saw how pissed she was getting. "Don't you ever tell me what to do? Just because we're married doesn't mean you get to rule over me like some cave man."

"Buttercup, I didn't mean it like that, but you're pregnant. I just don't want you to get hurt."

"And what about you?" she fired back at him. "I'm not going to stand by, and watch you get yourself killed."

"I'll be fine," he said. "Just stay here and rest. Please."

"Alright," she said. He took off for the door and flew away. Buttercup just stood there for a moment. "Like hell, I'll stay here."

She put on her boots and jacket and took to the skies. She took a detour so Butch wouldn't see her until it was too late.

Out in front of city hall the Mayor and Miss Bellum stood out on the steps and looking for any signs of the girls. Sure enough they came flying towards them.

Blossom was the first to approach with Brick at her side. "Oh, Blossom, thank goodness you're here."

"Don't worry, Mayor," Blossom said. "We'll take care of everything."

Blossom approached the crater seeing the lava bubbling up within it. Brick flew up to her. "Blossom, not so close."

"We have to investigate," she said.

"Yeah, that's true," Brick said. "But I think this is just a calling card."

"A way to get our attention?" Blossom wondered. Suddenly the lava shot towards them. "Look out!" she shouted, flinging Brick out of the way. The lava came straight towards her, but she used her ice breath and stopped the stream of lava dead in its tracts.

"Blossom!" Brick shouted as she sucked in her breath trying to freeze the opening as the lava boiled up. It was too much and drained her energy just as she sealed it up. She lost consciousness, Brick flew towards her and caught her before she hit the ground.

He knelt onto the ground holding her. Bubbles quickly flew towards her and became hysterical when she saw her unconscious sister.

"Blossom, wake up," Bubbles cried. "Please, don't be dead."

Bubbles patted her face lightly, and Blossom started to come to. "Wha... What happened?"

"You're working too hard," Brick said, still holding her. At that moment they all heard a sinister high-pitched laugh.

Boomer and Bubbles both looked up to see their enemy. He was surrounded by four tiny demons who flew towards them at lightning speed. One hit Bubbles slamming her into a nearby building. Another got Boomer, lifting him into the air and dropping him onto the road, leaving a crater of rubble in his path.

The other two came towards Brick and Blossom, but they were ready using their laser eye beams to immobilize the demons. The other two doubled their attack and one hitting Brick in the back as he covered Blossom's body so she wouldn't get hurt. He cried out in pain, but then he looked up and saw the tiny demon's explode right before his eyes.

"Brick, man, are you okay?" Brick heard a familiar voice. It was his brother, Butch.

Brick tried to rise to his feet but stumbled onto the ground. "Brick," Blossom called out.

He sat up, still in pain, but happy to see that Blossom was alright. "Hey, Bloss," he said.

"Hey, yourself," she said, and grabbed hold of him and embraced him.

"It's just so sweet," an annoying high pitched voice came, the being that it belonged to hovered over them.

"Him," Butch said angrily. "Leave them alone. I'm the one you want, so why don't you just come and get me."

"No!" Butch heard a voice from the distance. He looked over to see that it was Buttercup. "Don't you dare!" She looked straight at Him.

"Buttercup, what are you doing here?" Butch shouted. "I told you to stay home."

"Well, Butch, I never do what I'm told," she said. She turned her attention to Him.

Him only laughed at her. "Why, Buttercup, so nice of you to come. We have so much to catch up on."

"Stay away from her, Him," Butch yelled. "Take me if you want, but leave her alone."

Him started to laugh at him again. "Dear, boy, I don't want you." His high pitched voice changed to a deeper tone. "I want it." He pointed straight at Buttercup. His voice changed again to a high sweet tone. "Someone has to protect our baby."

Buttercup's face turned white as she felt something stir within her. So, he wanted her baby. Well, that wasn't going to happen. She would die first.

"You will never get my baby!" she shouted. The stirring continued and she felt a surge of power flow through her.

Her sisters and the boys looked up to see I white blinding light radiate from her as she flew straight towards Him. Before she could reach him he shattered into a million pieces. The pieces that was once Him dissolved and disappeared into the ground.

The white light surrounded the crater, sealing it and healing the ground. The sidewalk returned to normal like nothing ever happened. Buttercup turned to see her injured family and the white light glowed from her surrounded the area healing her sisters as well as Brick and Boomer. Buttercup landed softly on the ground as Butch ran towards her.

"Baby, are you alright?" he asked, putting his hands on her face. She looked a little disoriented and didn't answer him. "Buttercup?"

She snapped back to reality. "What? What happened?"

"You tell me," he said, and put his arms around her.

Her sisters and the boys came towards her. Bubbles was the first to embrace her, than Blossom. "How did you do that?" Blossom asked her.

"I didn't," Buttercup said.

"Then, how?" Bubbles asked.

"I think it was the baby," Buttercup said. She felt her stomach. The power surge had dissipated as she felt the baby settling down inside her.

"Wait a minute," Butch said. "I couldn't be. It was you."

"I wasn't doing it, I swear," she said.

The Major came over, along with Miss Bellum. "Girls, I can't thank you enough," he said. "And you boys, too. I'll never be able to repay you for what you've done."

"Thanks to all of you," Miss Bellum said. "But is Him really gone?"

"Who can tell?" Brick said. "He's not exactly human. Maybe."

"I would say so," Boomer said.

"We're not going to worry about that now," Butch said. He put an arm around Buttercup.

"You boys really have shown me and this whole city how wrong we were about you. You are good, you proved that once again, so if there's anything I can ever do for you, just ask."

"Right now," Brick said. "I think we could all use a little peace and quiet."

The six flew off back to Mojo's old place. Buttercup was feeling a little wiped out by the time they got back. She sat on the couch starting to drift off as Brick and Butch were trying to figure out what happened.

"How could it have been the baby?" Brick asked. "It's not even born yet."

"Well, Buttercup says it wasn't her, so why would she lie." Butch took a drink.

"If it was the baby, no wonder Him wanted it," Brick said. "If it's powerful enough to kill Him while it's still in the womb, then..."

"Would you all shut up?" Buttercup shouted and got up and stomped off to the bedroom.

Butch followed her and found her sitting on the bed with her head in her hands. "Hey," he said softly. "We didn't mean to upset you."

He sat on the bed next to her. "You didn't," she said, talking his hand. "I'm just tired and stressed out."

"Then why don't you get some sleep," he said.

"Only if you join me," she said and reached over and kissed him. "I sleep better when you're next to me."

"Okay," he said. "Let me just get rid everybody. Then we can have the place to ourselves."

"You're going to kick out your own brothers."

"Hey, they can stay at your place, or your old place. Besides, I think they would rather stay with your sisters then here with us."

"Well, only if they act like gentlemen," she said.

"They wouldn't do anything I wouldn't do," he said, looking devilishly at her.

"That's what I'm afraid of," she said.

"Hey, they spent the last two nights there," he said.

"Yeah, but my dad was there. He's out of town right now," she said. "But it would be nice to be alone."

"Good," he said. "I'll go get rid of them."

Buttercup looked into her overnight bag. She reached in and took out an emerald green silk nightie and slipped it on. She crawled into bed and settled in. She was determined to stay awake until Butch came back in, but she felt herself drifting off to sleep.

In the living room Butch confronted the small crowd. "Hey, is Buttercup okay?" Blossom asked.

"She's fine," Butch said. "She's just stressed out by this whole thing."

"We understand," Bubbles said. "Just tell her we'll see her tomorrow."

"Alright, and um... guys, do you think it would be alright if you stay with the girls tonight."

"Oh, sure," Brick said, "if it's okay with them."

"It's fine," Blossom said, "if you guys don't mind camping out in the living room again."

"That would be great," Brick said. "What do you think, Boomer?"

"Sounds like fun," he said, eying Bubbles the entire time.

Butch was relieved that they agreed. He still wanted some time alone with Buttercup, especially after what happened that night. After his brothers left with the girls he went back into the bedroom to see Buttercup had fallen asleep.

"Oh, baby," he said, sliding in the bed next to her. She didn't stir.

He kissed her forehead and turned out the light and lay down next to her. She must have known he was there because she snuggled up next to him and sighed softly. He put the covers over her and closed his eyes and went to sleep.
