I had a lot of spare time today, so enjoy
A deafining bang is heard as it echoes across the city and a flash is seen at the top of the tower, followed by a cloud of smoke.
Ladybug: (coughing)... where are you?
Loup D'ombre: Right behind you..
He grabs her from behind, but Ladybug breaks his hold, jumping back as the smoke disperses.
Ladybug: It's now or never.... Lucky Charm!!!
Loup D'ombre: No you don't!
Loup reaches for his chest pouch just as Ladybug flings her yo-yo into the air as it spins. He pulls put the orb, it a bright, golden light erupts as he grips it tightly. Suddenly, a strong force is felt as the yo-yo stops spinning and falls back into her hand's.
Ladybug: What!?! How did you...
Loup D'ombre: It's all because of this... (showing off the orb) the "apple" contains power, more ancient than the Miraculouses. Now, if you excuse me... (he walks to the giant hole in the railing) i must be leaving.
Ladybug: No, i won't let you.
She jumps on his back.
Loup D'ombre: Ugh! Get off!
Ladybug: Not until you hand over that thing.
Loup D'ombre struggles to get Ladybug off her back whioe trying to stop her from grabbing the orbs. Suddenly, he loses his balance as he falls. At the same time, Ladybug grabs the orb as he falls off the tower.
Ladybug: Finally.... but, what is this thing?
Suddenly, Loup D'ombre aims his hand and fires his grappling hook. It hits and latches onto the orb. Ladybug struggles to hang on to both the apple and the ledge, but is pulled of the tower as she lets go of the orb.
Loup D'ombre grabs the orb as his grappling hook retracts, but crashes into the stage while Ladybug slowly decents to the ground while spinning her yo-yo.
A few minutes earlier....
Adrien is walking back to meet up with Alya and Nino, but decides to stop by the buffet to pici up some dessert.
Adrien: I wonder what should i get....
Just then, Sabine,carrying a strawberry chesscake, walks to the table and put's down the cake.
Adiren: Hello, Mrs. Cheng.
Sabine: Oh, your the Agreste boy, Adiren, Right?
Adiren: That's right, so (looking at the cheesecake) what did you bring?
Sabine: A strawberry cheesecake, feel free to take a few slices.
Adrien: Knowing the goods you and your husband makes, i will take three.
Sabine slices the cake, takes three slices, putting them on plates, and gives them to Adrien.
Sabine: That reminds me, have you seen Marinette?
Adrien: Yeah, she said she was going to the bathroom.
Sabine: Oh, well have fun.
Adrien: (walking away) We will.
Adrien walks all the way back to the table.
Adrien: I'm back...
Nino and Alya turn around, seeing Adrien as he puts the plates on the table.
Adrien... and i got desert, straberry chesse cake, courtesy of Marinette's parents.
Alya: Now we'rr talking.
Nino: Hey, where's Marinette?
Adrien: She went to the bathroom. She'll be back any minute.
Alya: Alright, enough talk, let's eat.
2 minutes later.
Alay: Now that was pleasant.
Nino: I know, maybe there's some left.
Adrien looks around, as if we was looking for something.
Nino: Dude, you alright?
Adrien: Yeah, it's just that Marinette's been gone for a while.
Alya: Knowing her, i think she'll turn up before tonight's over.
A deafining bang is heard as it echoes across the city and a flash is seen at the top of the tower, followed by a cloud of smoke. Police are running towards the tower as everyone runs in panic. The three of them stand up.
Alya: What's happening?!?
Adrien: I don't know.
Nino: C'mon, we gonna go.
Adrien: But Marinette...
They turn around, seeing Gabriel, Nathalie, and the "Gorilla" heading towards them.
Gabriel: Adiren... (putting his hands on Adiren's shoulders) are you alright?
Adrien: I'm fine, dad.
Gabriel: Good, now let's get out of here.
Adrien: We can't, Marinette still missing.
Alya: Yeah, we can't just leave her.
Gabriel: All i care about is my son's safety. Your welcome to come with us if you like; but we'rr not staying here.
???: Hey!!! look at the tower.
They all turn around, looking up the tower, seeing Loup D'ombre falling, followed by Ladybug, spinning her yo-yo like a helicopter blade.
Adiren starts to run towards the scene
They all start running after Adrien
Loup D'ombre falls on to the stage, breaking it as Ladybug lands. Police surrounds them as they carefully approach him. A huge crowd gathers around them.
Ladybug: Give it up, Loup. Your surrounded and you got nowhere to go.
Loup D'ombre recovers as he gets up, getting off the remains of the stage and onto the ground.
Loup D'ombre: Foolish girl, now that i have the "apple", you don't stand a chance.
Loup D'ombre grips the apple as it glows.
Ladybug: Not this time...
Ladybug flings her yo-yo, hitting the orb, knocking out of his hands and falls on the ground. Then, she engages him in combat.
Labybug: Quick, someone grab the orb!
Adrien, hearing her words, jumps out of crowd and grabs the orb.
Loup D'ombre: No, Don't!!!
Just as he picks it up, a blinding light erupts as a huge blast knocks everyone back. Ladybug (catching the worst of it) de-transforms into Marinette and is knocked back a few feet. Loup D'ombre de-transform into his original form as the Akuma is blown off him before being purified by the light. Loup holds his ground, while making his way towards the orb.
Loup: It's not possible...
He see's Adiren, staring directly into the orb's light.
Loup: but it is... he's awaken!
Loup slowly makes his way towards him
He then grabs the orb, the light disappears along with the mysterious force. Adrien collapses.
Loup: This could be a problem.
Loup examines Adrien, but runs as he sees everyone recovering.
He runs towards Adrien, as he sits up.
Gabriel: (kneeling) Are you alright?
Adrien: I'm fine, but what happenend to Loup? and Ladybug?
Adrien looks around, seeing everone recovering from the blast, but stops when he sees Marinette, unconscious.
He gets up and runs to Marinette's side. He put's his right arm around her and elevates. Alya and Nino stands around them.
Adiren: Marinette, Wake up!
Marinette: mmm....(opens her eyes)...ugh...what happened?
She wakes up, then realizes she's in Adrien's arms. They look at each other, both blushing.
Alya: Where were you?
Marinette: (gets up) I was going to the bathroom but... i saw something strange. I went look for an officer, but them the tower blow up. I came running back here, but i was blown away.
Adrien: (getting up) Well, at least your safe.
???: I'm glad all of you are safe.
They see Cooper and Pyrrha walking towards them.
Cooper: You kids alright?
Nino: We'rr fine Mr. Stérn.
???: But i'm not.
They see Gabriel, Nathalie, and the "Gorilla" walking towards them.
Gabriel: If you had better security, then none of this would have happend.
Cooper: I ordered an hourly patrol on the tower and to put it as a restrictive area till later.
Nathalie: That still does not make it a good excuse.
Pyrrha: Well then, how about Hawk Moth? You saw the party crasher. He was akumatized, but returned to his normal form after that light disappeared. If anyone should be to blame, it should be Hawk Moth.
Gabriel: Enough, we'rr heading home now. Mr. Stérn, this will not hurt our partnership, but it does for our relations.
Cooper: I understand.
Gabriel: Come Adrien, we'rr leaving
Gabriel, Nathalie, the "Gorllia" and Adrien walk to their cars.
Cooper: You three should go now. The limo driver will take you home.
Marinette: Okay, Mr. Stérn, we will.
Cooper and Pyrrha walk away.
Alya: Well, let's go, i gotta update my Ladyblog.
Nino: Yeah, all of..."that" made me tired.
Marinette: C'mon, the limo's this way.
They all head towards the limo.
At the same time...
Cooper: I can't believe this... he had a plan. He said he could handle it. I shouldn't jave trusted him.
Rose: But, we do have "it". Isn't that what matters.
Cooper: Yes, but now i'm stuck cleaning up his mess.
Cooper reaches into his pocket and pulls out his phone.
Cooper: It's him.
Cooper: What is now? I'm stuck cleaning up your mess, so it better be important. What... so he's now... i see. We'll take care of it tomorrow... but it'll be risky. Do you still have "it"? Good, then we can try it.
Cooper: We have a new problem.
Rose: What is it?
Cooper: I'll tell you later. But for now, we have work to do.
They reach the base of the tower as they are approached by officers, asking questions.
I hoped you liked it. Another major moment is coming, find out if unfolds in Chapter 12: Ghost of the Past.
