Ben 10: (Un)Lucky Girl
In the back of the rust bucket Ben was fast asleep as Max entered the door, at the small table booth Gwen was at her computer typing away as Max tossed a small package next to her.
Some mail for Lucky Girl came, why don't you take a look. Max said casually as he moved to a counter and began to sort through the rest of the mail.
Before Gwen could react Ben snatched up the package as he plopped down in the couch of the booth opposite Gwen, the package in his hand as he tor open the flap.
Why is Lucky Girl getting mail but Four Arms or XLR8 aren't. Ben said with a pout. Aw man is just a stupid mask. he added as he tossed lucky girls familiar mask at Gwen, the only difference was it was trimmed in dull gold instead of the normal trim Gwen had on her mask.
Hey freak that's my mail, give it back. Gwen protested as she reached for the letter in Ben's hand, leaning back he slipped out the booth and danced past Gwen to escape her.
Dear Gwen Tenesen, I have seen you traveling around the country with your father and brother... Ben paused, his face scrunched into a grimace and he stuck out his tongue, Ick me and Gwen brother and sister. He shivered a moment, That's just gross.
Gwen took the moment to snatch the letter back shoving Ben onto his ass, Reading other people's mail is a criminal offense you know Ben.
Your a criminal offense, Ben shot back getting to his feet.
Simmer down you two, Max interjected as he pulled the letter from Gwen and scanned it over.
Looks like someone figured since we get around you might see Lucky Girl and be able to give her the Mask.
Gwen moved back to her seat, lifting the familiar mask in hand and turning it over in her hand, her voice dropped a octave as she lowered her head, To bad Lucky Girl is gone.
Stopping his antics Ben placed his hand on Gwen's shoulder, H-Hey Gwen, why don't you put it on. His voice full of sincerity.
Gwen forced a smile as Ben slipped out of the Rust Bucket.
I'll wait outside while you change.
Gwen's smile broadened, Thanks Ben.
A moment later Ben sat on the step of the Rust Bucket's door, his eyes downcast to the Omnitrix. Wonder what I would do if I ever lost you and had to see Lucky Girl save the day all the time? he said to no one but himself.
A moment later the door behind him opened and Ben jumped up, spinning around he was greeting with Gwen in her Lucky Girl outfit. Before Ben could say anything there was a explosion in the distance. Ben's head craned toward the sound as smoke billowed into the sky.
It's Hero Time, he exclaimed as he began to spin the dial on the Omnitrix, a moment later he had transformed in a flash of green into Heat blast and with a jet of fire under him he launched himself toward the trouble. Looking back only a moment as he flew away, You look good Gwen. he commented before vanishing into the distance.
Gwen smiled. Turning back inside as Max rushed to the driver's side and peeled out on Ben's trail, Lucky Girl settling down in the seat at her computer and crossing her arms. I wish I could really become Lucky Girl again. she said with a sigh.
I'm sure you will one day, Max returned, All things come in time.
I know Grandpa, but I still miss it. she said with a sigh, absently scratching her ear. For a moment a soft violet glow lit the rim's of Gwen's eyes, but it was only for a moment. Elsewhere Charm Caster slowly opened her eyes, a rim of violet flashing in her eyes for just a moment as she got of her prison cot, a wicked smirk on her lips.
Sooner then you think 'Lucky Girl,' Sooner then you think. she cooed darkly.
