We begin after the gang finished their meal and have a conversation.
Alya: ...and it's strange right?
Adrien: So let me get this straight: you think after Mr. Stérn arrived in Paris, all those things that have happened for the past few days are because of him?
Alya: Yeah, i can't be the only one to think that?
Marinette: I know it can't be a conicedence, but i don't think Mr. Stérn would do anything like break into the Louvre.
Nino: Sorry Alya, but I'm gonna have to agree with Marinette. That sounds a little weird.
Alya: You know, after saying that out loud, i can hear it.
Marinette: Maybe you should take a break from Ladyblog. I think it' starting to mess with you.
Alya: You know i can't do that. Especially with all my followers.
???: Excuse me.
They turn around seeing Pyrrha walking towards them.
Adrien: Ms. Rose?
Marinette: Wait, haven't i seen you before?
Alya: Yeah, we did, during that one time in class.
Nino: The day when Mr. Stérn came to see you.
Pyrrha: Good to see you kids have good memory. (looks at Adrien) Mr. Agreste, (Looks at Mainrette) Ms. Dupain-Cheng, Mr. Stérn would like to see you.
Adrien: Okay, but why?
Pyrrha: He just said he wanted to talk to bot of you. Don't worry, your not in trouble.
Marinette: Alright then...let's go.
Adrien and Marinette get up.
Marinette: We'll be back.
Pyrrha: Follow me.
Adrien and Marinette follow Pyrrha to Mr. Stérn who is standing in front of the stage alond with a group of people.
Cooper: ....and that's when the floor broke and we crashed inside.
They all laughed
Cooper: You wish you where their to see her face. Pyrrha was definitely mad, mainly because she was...
They turn around, seeing Rose, with Adrien and Marinette behind her.
Cooper: ..Okay, that's enough for now. Now, if you excuse me.
Cooper walks towards them.
Pyrrha: I though we agreed to never bring that up again.
Cooper: Sorry, you how things are at places like this.
Pyrrha: Yet, every time i question how you and Jaune are related, i get a reminder.
Cooper: Sorry, we'll talk later...
Pyrrha: You know we will.
Cooper: Now, children, sorry to call you away from your friends, but i need to talk with you.
Adrien: Sure, Mr. Stérn, what is it?
Cooper: Not here, let's talk someplace private.
The three of them walk away and stop at the Tower's plaza.
Marinette: So what is it, Mr. Stérn?
Cooper: I hope you kids have a good time, because i'm not.
Adrien: What do you mean?
Cooper: Ever since the break-ins at the Louvre and Paradis, people think that i have been behind them.
Marinette: But you aren't...right?
Cooper: Believe me, i would never do that. I am so close to finishing this project, that i don't need these accusations getting in my way.
Adrien: What are you saying, Mr. Stérn?
Cooper: Do you still trust me? Many of these people think i'm lying. Even if i was, i would tell white lies. So... do you still trust me? Even if you say no, won't act against it.
Marinette and Adrien look at each other and then back at Cooper.
Both of them: We do.
Cooper: Oh... i still good to have others that trust me. Now, let's get back. The deserts should be ready.
At that moment, Marinette saw the strangest thing: a shadow, moving on it's own, towards the base of the tower.
Adiren: You coming, Marinette?
Marinette looks at Adrien, then to the base, and back to Adrien.
Marinette: Sorry, but i gotta go tooooo.... the restroom
Adrien: Okay, don't take too long.
Adrien walks away as Marinette runs and behind a bush. Tikki pops out.
Tikki: Is everything okay, Marinette?
???: Ah, the coast is clear.
Marinette and Tikki peek through a bush as a dark cloud of smoke appears as Loup D'ombre rises from the ground, out of shadow form.
Loup D'ombre: Time to finish this.
He walks towards the tower's elevator. the door opens, he walks inside.
Loup D'ombre: Next stop, final floor: observation platform.
Loup D'ombre pushes a button and the door closes as the elevator rises. Marinette and Tikki come out of the bush and runs to the elevator.
Marinette: Tikki, you saw that, right. That was Loup.
Tikki: He looked different though.
Marinette: He was akumatize, but still acted like himself. (pushing a button)
Tikki: Marinette, what are you doing?
Marinette: I need to stop him but.... (looks sad) I can't fight him alone. I need Cat Noir's help.
Tikki: But there's no time. Only you can stop him
Marinette: (looks back at Tikki and cheers up) Your right, i need to do this on my own.
The elevator arrives and opens. Marinette and Tikki step inside, pushing the button to the observation platform.
Marinette: Here we go. TIKKI, SPOTS ON!!!
Marinette transforms into Ladybug
Ladybug: I just hope i'm not too late.
A few minutes earlier.
The elevator reaches the observation platform, Loup D'ombre steps out, walking towards the railing and looks at the view.
Loup D'ombre: If only i had the time to see what it was like at night. Now... (turns around) where are you.
He activates his "Wolf Sense", seeing the aura around the environment. He see's a gold trail, leading up the tower.
Loup D'ombre: I hope no one sees me.
He starts to climb the tower, following the trail. He continues to follow it till reaching the top.
Loup D'ombre: The trail ends here... so is it.
He touches the tip, then the ring starts to glow. The tip begins to open as bright light erupts from inside. A glowing, gold orb is revealed as strange symbols appear around it. Loup D'ombre picks it up as the light dies down and the symbols disappear.
Loup D'ombre: Finally, after all this time. It's now over, out work has paid off.
He puts the orb in his chest pouch before climbing back down. He drops half way down and lands on the platform. He heads towards the elevator and calls it.
Loup D'ombre: Now, i just need to get out if here.
The elevator opens. Just as it opens Loup is kicked back.
???: Your not going anywhere, Loup!
Ladybug steps out and readies her yo-yo
Loup D'ombre: You again?!? Didn't you even listen to Renard?
Ladybug: I did, but i still want answers... (points at him) and you got them.
Loup D'ombre: Ugh, i don't have time for this. So get out of my way!
Ladybug: You know i can't do that.
She reaches in the elevator and sends it down to the base.
Loup D'ombre: Maybe i will keep my end of the deal.
Loup D'ombre charges as Ladybug, but she dodges and kicks him in the back. She tries to kick him, but he grabs her leg, then throws her against the railing. He opens one of his pouches and takes out a bomb and throws it. Ladybug grabs her yo-yo and throws at the bomb, in mid-air.
A deafining boom is heard as it echoes across the city and a flash is seen at the top of the tower, followed by a huge cloud of smoke.
I hoped you liked it. We'rr close to another major moment, find out how it unfolds in Chapter 11: Awakening.
