Buttercup has left town. Will Butch abandon his mission to search for her?

Chapter Four: Without You

As Buttercup flew through the air she wondered where she could go. She thought of only one place. She flew down to her favorite bar, the place she always hung out with Butch. It was low key establishment where no one ever asked questions. As long as you had the cash, the bartenders stayed silent. No one cared who you were or where you were from. She walked in thinking she would feel at home here, but she just felt more lonely than ever.

She saw several people she knew, but no one used their real names, if any at all. "Hey, sweetheart, a guy said, approaching Buttercup as she sat in one of the corner booths by herself. "Lookin' for company?"

Buttercup just rolled her eyes at him, but the guy sat down next to her and attempted to put his hands on her. Her eyes went red for a moment, and the guy backed off out of fright.

Buttercup sat alone again, and she was glad for the solitude. It didn't last long, because a girl with frizzy red hair came up to her.

"Hey, geek," the girl said.

"Buzz off, Princess," Buttercup said. "I'm in no mood for you."

"Oh, really, and what about Butch?" she inquired. "He get smart and dump your ass."

Buttercup just glared at her. She wanted nothing more than to wrap her hands around Princess' neck, but that would draw too much attention.

"Like I said," Buttercup remarked, trying to keep her cool. "Buzz off." She emphasized the words, but it didn't seem to work.

Princess was relentless. She slipped behind Buttercup and whispered in her ear. "He needs a girl who actually knows how to fuck." That was it.

Buttercup rose up from her seat and grabbed Princess by the throat. She picked her up off the floor and threw her back down. She glared at her again, before picking up her bag and walking out.

She flew up into the air, looking down at all the places she had been with Butch and her sisters. The memories were too much. She just had to get away from here. She had to go somewhere where there were no memories to haunt her. She flew until her energy was spent which didn't take long.

As she came upon Citysville she felt quite winded, so she landed and looked for a place to eat. She tried to think about the last time she ate. Then she remembered. It was with Butch at the junkyard. She missed him so desperately. Why hadn't she told him about the baby? She almost wished she had, but it was too late now.

She walked into the little diner and sat down at one of the booths. It was just after six in the morning. The sun barely came up, and she was craving those chocolate pancakes that Bubbles would make for her when she was feeling depressed. She thought of going home, but what would she say. Blossom would just give her another lecture of how stupid she was, but after everything she hadn't regretted anything she did with Butch. She still loved him, and she knew she always would.

She picked up a menu and looked through it to find something to wet her appetite. She wasn't really interested in food, but she knew she needed to eat something. The waitress came over and stood in front of her.

"What'll it be?" she asked. She was a short, skinny girl who wore her blond hair in a ponytail with a uniform two sizes too small.

"Just pancakes and sausage, please," Buttercup said, looking quite exhausted.

"Anything to drink?" the waitress asked.

"Just orange juice," she said.

The waitress left to fill her order, but her depression soon returned. Buttercup just sat there and waited for her food. Even though she tried hard to block it out of her mind she could help but think of the life she left behind.

Finally, her food came. As she was about to take her first bite, a woman looking to be in her mid-twenties came up to her.

She thought she recognized her. "Shelley?" she questioned, thinking she must have been mistaken.

"Why, yes," the woman said. "Buttercup Utonium? What are you doing in Citysville?"

"I'm not sure," Buttercup said. "I just got into town. It's good to see you again, Shelley."

"You too," Shelley said. ""So how long are you staying here?"

"It depends," Buttercup said, taking a bite of her food.

"Do you have a place to stay?" Shelley asked.

"Not really," Buttercup said.

"Well, honey, don't you worry. You'll be staying with me," Shelley said, giving Buttercup a friendly smile.

"Shelley, I couldn't impose..."

"Nonsense, after you saved me and my brother from that weird monkey a few years ago, I owe you."

"You don't owe me anything," Buttercup said. "Saving people is just something I do."

"Maybe," Shelley said, "but it looks like you could use a friend. Am I right?" Buttercup nodded her response, as she took another bite. "Then that settles it. You're coming home with me."

"Alright, you win," Buttercup said, finishing off the rest of her food. She left the money for the meal on the table and left with Shelley.

The sun was fully out now, and she loved feeling the warmth of the sun on her skin. She was still a little depressed, but seeing her old friend again, lifted her spirits a little.

"Here we are," Shelley announced as she escorted Buttercup into the building. "I live on the ground floor."

Shelley led her down one flight of stairs, since the elevator was broken again. Buttercup followed her to the door of her apartment and unlocked the door, and they both walked inside.

"It's not much, but you're welcome to stay for as long as you want."

"Thanks, Shelley," she said and started to yawn. "I can't believe how tired I am."

"Then you should get some sleep," Shelley said. "The guest room is right through there."

Buttercup walked into the guestroom and melted seeing that nice, comfortable bed. She changed into a black T-shirt and that just went down to her thighs. As soon as she slipped under the covers she fell asleep.

The next morning Blossom woke up early. She felt ashamed of the way she had talked to Buttercup. She felt she should have been more supportive. It was obvious that she was upset about the whole situation, but Blossom couldn't understand why she would get involved with Butch. Didn't she know that there was no way she could ever have a future with him, and now she was having his baby?

She gently knocked on her sister's door, before opening it. When she got no answer she peeked inside. She received a shock. Buttercup wasn't there. In fact, her bed hadn't been slept in.

"Bubbles!" she screamed. She quickly flew down the hallway. "Bubbles! Wake up!"

She pounded on her sister's door so hard she fell out of bed. Bubbles staggered to her door and opened it. With unfocused eyes, Bubbles squinted hard to see her red-haired sister. "Blossom, what the hell!" she said, dragging herself back to her bed and collapsing onto it.

"Bubbles, this is serious," Blossom said, coming up to her and trying to force her out of bed. "We have a situation."

"I don't care," she said, swiping her sister's hand away.

"Bubbles!" Blossom screamed. Bubbles shot up in bed. She had a disgusted, 'this better be good' look on her face. "Buttercup is missing."

"What!" Bubbles shouted out in horror. "Why didn't you say so?"

"I just did," Blossom said. "We've got to find her before the professor gets back."

"Well, maybe if you hadn't yelled at her last night."

"Yell at me about it later," Blossom said, trying to stay focused. "For right now we have to find Buttercup and fast."

"Alright." Bubbles grabbed some clothes and went into her bathroom to change. She was quick to change clothes and ran a comb through her hair. She came out of the bathroom and noticed Blossom was no longer in her room. She flew down the hall to Blossom's room and saw that she had already changed clothes. The two sisters flew down the stairs and left the house in search of their missing sister.

They flew into Townsville, trying to think of where she could be. "So where would you be if you were Buttercup?" Bubbles asked.

"Only one place I can think of," Blossom said. She took her sister's hand. "Let's go."

They flew down to the more seeding side of town. Bubbles didn't like being down there. Even in the daytime it seemed dark and spooky.

"Here we are," Blossom said. "Damn. It's too bad they're closed. If she were here last night, someone must have seen her."

"Hey, what are you two doing down here?"

Bubbles gasped as Blossom just turned around to see Butch Jojo standing there. "What's it to you, lowlife?"

"Nothing," he said, leaning up against the building. "I just don't want to see any of you girls getting hurt." He looked around, wondering why Buttercup wasn't with them. "So, I only see two of you. Where's the hot one?"

"That's what we should ask you?" Blossom said, getting up in his face.

"Yeah," Bubbles demanded. "What did you do to our sister?"

"What are you talking about? I haven't seen Buttercup since..." Butch stopped himself before he said too much, but he wondered if they already knew.

"Since when?" Blossom said. "Like last night. We know she came home late last night, and she wasn't exactly happy. So what did you do to her?"

"Hey, I would never hurt Buttercup. I-I..." Butch stopped, thinking about what Blossom was saying. "What a minute. Is Buttercup missing?"

"Yeah, she's missing," Bubbles said. "And after what you did to her..."

"What? I didn't do anything to her," Butch said defensively. "I could never hurt her, or any of you. I'm not your enemy."

"Oh, really," Blossom said. "Then you tell us where she is."

"I don't know, but I'm going to find out."

"And why should we believe you?" Blossom asked.

"Because... because I... love her," Butch said. "And you both may not like it, but she loves me, too." Butch flew off away from them and ducked down an alley. There was a young man waiting there for him. "Hey, Butch, what's going down?"

"I don't know yet," he said. "But it doesn't matter because I'm out. I can't do this now. There's a personal matter I have to take care of first."

"No way, Butch," his contact said. "Him is a personal matter. You don't do this, and you're goin' to prison. Do you know how much crap the chief's got on you and those brothers of yours? It won't be just you in the slammer, but maybe they'll put you all in cell together, a nice little family suite."

"Are you threatening me?" Butch asked, grabbing him by the collar. "Nobody threatens me." He let go of him, but the young man stumbled a little.

"Fine. Tell it to chief," he said, starting to leave the alley. "Maybe he'll understand."

"Lead the way," Butch said, following him out.
