Flippy sat down his couch, looking at the floor.
"So you finally got rid of that bitch." His evil side said. Flippy didn't answer. "Hello?"
Normally, he would expect his good side to yell at him, but he just sat there. Suddenly there was a pounding on his door. He got up and opened it, and saw Cuddles and Giggles.
"Hey Flippy. Can we come in?" Cuddles asked. Flippy nodded. They all sat down in the living room. There was a long awkward silence between them.
"You really hurt Flaky." Cuddles said. Flippy look's at him.
"Is she going to be all right?" Flippy asked. Cuddles look's at him as if Flippy had asked a stupid question.
"Flippy, you told her that you didn't care about her and that you never want to see her again! Of course she's not all right!" Cuddles yelled at him. Flippy averted his gaze down to the floor, guilt in his expression.
"How could you even say that to her?" Cuddles asked.
"Because I meant it." Flippy stated coldly.
Both Cuddles and Flippy look at Giggles with surprise, they never thought she would speak so vulgarly.
"What you said to Flaky was bullshit and you know it! You do care about her." Giggles said. Cuddles looked at Flippy.
"Is that true?" He asked.
"Yes, it's true, but I only said that to protect her! When I'm around her, my evil side tries to come out and kill her, and I don't want to cause her pain anymore!" Flippy yelled.
"Even if you don't see her again, your evil side can still kill her. When you flip out, your evil side can just go to her house and do whatever he wants with her! So either way, Flaky's screwed." Giggles said. Flippy stared at the floor again, knowing that she was right. No matter what Flippy did, his evil side would try to kill Flaky one way or another.
"Listen, we're not telling you to go down to the hospital and apologize to her, were asking you to do the right thing. Flaky has had a rough life and I don't think she can handle not seeing you again." Cuddles said.
"Why can't she handle not seeing me again?" Flippy asked.
"You should ask her that yourself." Giggles replied.
"Please Flippy, do the right thing and talk to Flaky. Tell her you care about her and what you said wasn't true. Please, do it for her." Cuddles asked, practically begging. He and Giggles got up and left, leaving behind a guilt-ridden Flippy.
Flippy was lying on his bed, thinking about what Cuddles and Giggles said. It had been a week since they talked and Flippy was having a hard time on deciding on what he should do. Flaky had since returned to her home, but he was still worried for her.
"I don't know what I should do." Flippy thought. "If I stay with Flaky, he'll kill her," he said out loud, referring to his evil side. "But if I stay away from Flaky, I'll never be able to live with myself for abandoning her." Flippy got up and walked into the bathroom. He stared into the mirror.
"Come out, I need to talk to you." Flippy said. A few seconds later his evil side appeared in his reflection.
"What do you want?" His evil side demanded with a disgruntled look. Flippy took a deep breath and spoke up.
"I can't believe I'm going to say this, but what do you think I should do?" Flippy asked him out of desperation.
"Forget her!" his alter ego said. "You don't need her, while you've got me! All she ever did was cause you pain." Flippy took offence to this.
"That's a lie!" he yelled. "I love Flaky, and all you ever do is hurt, maim and kill. You are the real pain in my life!"
"Listen to yourself!" his dark side replied, you're as mad as her!" Flippy was seething.
"I hate you. I really friggin' hate you. I wish I'd never joined the army at all!" Flippy shouted, rage in his voice.
"I should've killed her when I had the chance." his evil side said smugly. "Maybe I will, if you don't shut up."
Flippy was enraged at his evil side. "Don't you ever touch her!" He yelled.
"Oh, I'm so scared!" Evil Flippy replied sarcastically. "If I could kill you, I already would've by now!"
That was it; Flippy raised his fist and struck the mirror, causing it to shatter into a thousand pieces. He looked at his hand, just like last time, it had been cut by the glass shards. Flippy felt something change in him: his eyes twitched, and his mind filled with dark thoughts. Evil Flippy had taken over.
"At last! I'm going to kill that little whore for knocking me out!" he laughed menacingly. Evil Flippy heard his good self in his head.
"Stop this now!" Good Flippy demanded. "She's just a girl, leave her alone!" Evil Flippy, like usual, laughed at this.
"Not likely! I've got a personal score to settle with that bitch!" Evil said. Flippy was frightened; his evil side had finally gotten the chance to attack Flaky.
Flaky was at home, crying her eyes out. She had just returned from the hospital, and her injuries here almost completely healed. She was lying in bed, her head buried in her pillow. Flaky's thoughts were focused on one thing and one thing only, Flippy.
"Flippy," she cried, barely able to speak, "Please come back. I love you."
She heard a sound outside, it sounded like a vehicle was pulling up in front of her house. Flaky looked up, out the window she could see Flippy's jeep.
Flaky was overjoyed to see this. She got up and rushed to the door. She opened it and saw Flippy. Flaky flung her arms around him and began to cry.
"Flippy!" she exclaimed. "You came back for me!" Suddenly, everything changed when she heard Flippy speak.
"Hello bitch!" he said. Flaky's expression at once changed to fear. She withdrew and saw Evil Flippy standing in place of her beloved. Flaky just stood there, frozen with fear. Evil Flippy grinned evilly.
"Aww, why so sad? Did you miss me?" he asked mockingly. Flaky started to cry again.
"Why are you here?" she asked. "What do you want from me?" Evil Flippy grinned.
"I want you!" he replied. "I want to kill you! I'm going to tear you apart, bitch!"
Evil Flippy grabbed Flaky, pulled out his bowie knife and held it to her throat, just like the week before. Flaky was terrified, but decided that she must do something.
"Don't hurt me!" she begged, "Do anything you want, just don't hurt me!"
"Too bad!" he growled. "For that little stunt you pulled last time, I'm going to kill you!" Evil Flippy seized Flaky by the back of her neck and forced her inside. He forced her into the bathroom and closed the door.
"Now to take what you denied me before!" Evil Flippy yelled, throwing Flaky on the ground. He crawled on top of her. Desperate to escape, Flaky spat in his face, causing Evil Flippy to fall backwards. He wiped the saliva from his face.
"You disgusting whore!" he exclaimed. Flaky scrambled to her feet and punched him in the face. Flaky ran to the door and opened it, escaping into the hall.
Evil Flippy dragged himself over to the sink to get up, but saw something that caught him off guard, which was no small feat. In the mirror, was Flippy.
"For the last time, I told you not to touch her!" Flippy yelled. Evil Flippy was annoyed.
"You! How can you still talk to me like this?" he demanded. "I'm doing you a favour, ridding you of that bitch!"
"This isn't a favour!" Flippy yelled from the mirror, "This is just sick!" Suddenly, Evil Flippy felt something strike him in the head, it was his own fist. Flippy was trying to regain control over him.
Flaky, who had heard the commotion, peeked into the bathroom to see Flippy writhing on the floor, hands clutching his head, both sides of his mind warring for dominance. Flippy looked at her.
"Run Flaky! Get away from here!" he yelled. Flaky couldn't stand it.
"I can't bear to see you like this!" she said, beginning to cry again. Flippy writhed again, and accidentally hit Flaky, making her stumble.
"Flaky!" he shouted. "Please, just run! I'm sorry, he's too strong for me to fight!" Flippy let out a long piercing scream, and went limp. Flaky took a step closer. Flippy began to stir, and opened his eyes, they were green. He slowly got up and looked at Flaky, who began to back away again.
"At last, he's gone!" Evil Flippy exclaimed. He turned to Flaky. "Now it's your turn!" He drew his knife and lunged at Flaky, toppling her to the floor once again. He sat on top of her again and held the knife to her throat.
"Any last words?" Evil Flippy asked. This was it. Flaky decided that it was now or never.
" she said, crying. "If you can hear me, there's something that I've always wanted to tell you."
"And what's that?" Evil Flippy asked, chuckling evilly.
" she stammered. She finally found the courage to tell him what she always wanted to:
"I love you."
Flaky finally did it, she told him how she felt. She was expecting Evil Flippy to slash her throat open for that remark, but it never came to pass. She looked up, and saw that Evil Flippy had doubled back. He stumbled over to the sink, and looked in the mirror. In his reflection, was Flippy.
"That does it!" he yelled. "I won't let you take me over again!" He raised his fist, striking himself in the face. Evil Flippy tried to fight against this, but to no avail. Flippy did this to himself again and again until he fell to the floor, bleeding.
Flaky slowly crawled over to him, cautious, but worried. She placed her hand on his cheek.
" she whispered, "Are you alright?" Flippy began to shift, his eyes opened, revealing that they were their usual black.
"F-Flaky?" he asked weakly.
Flaky was overjoyed, Flippy was alive! She cradled him in her arms.
"I thought I lost you!" Flaky cried. Flippy looked up at her, tears in his eyes. He placed his hand on her cheek.
"I'm sorry for everything." He said. "I'm sorry for abandoning you, I really do care for you." Flaky shook her head.
"It doesn't matter. I knew you didn't mean any of that." She said. She placed his arm over her shoulder, helping him up. "We'd best get you to hospital." The two left and went into the living room. She set Flippy down on the couch and called an ambulance, which arrived shortly thereafter.
Flippy was lying in a hospital bed. He was wearing a hospital robe, his coat and beret on the end of the bed. Around him were Cuddles, Giggles, Mime, Russell and Flaky, who was sitting next to him.
"Flippy, you're awake!" Flaky cheered.
"I'm glad to see you're alright." Cuddles said, happily.
"We were starting to worry!" Giggles said.
"Ye made it, matey!" said Russell.
Mime, as usual, didn't speak. He instead just gave Flippy a thumbs up.
"Thank you, everyone!" Flippy replied, sitting up. Flaky was ecstatic
"I missed you!" Flaky said, throwing her arms around him, drawing him into an embrace. Flippy retuned the embrace.
"I think we should these two alone." Cuddles said to Giggles, Russell and Mime. The four of them left, closing the door behind them. Flippy and Flaky broke their embrace.
"Flippy, I want to tell you something." Flaky said.
"I already know." He replied, a smile on his face.
"You do?" Flaky asked.
"Yes, I do."
Flippy placed his hand on hers, which made her blush.
"I love you, Flaky." He said. Flippy drew her closer to him and kissed her. Flaky couldn't believe it; Flippy felt the same way for her. She closed her eyes and lost herself in the moment. Soon, they broke the kiss. Flaky looked at Flippy, her eyes sparkling with tears of happiness.
"I love you too!" She replied.
"Without you, I wouldn't have been able to win against my evil side." Flippy said.
"I hope he doesn't come back!" Flaky said, worryingly. Flippy shook his head.
"You don't have to worry about him anymore." He said. "He's never going to come back."
Flaky was relieved. She pulled Flippy into a hug again. They both knew that everything was going to be alright. Flaky had found the courage to show her true feelings to Flippy, and Flippy had defeated the demons that had been plaguing him for so long. Things had finally changed for the both of them, for the better.
