Okay, here it is. This is my next small one time fic. But this time, it's a prequel to my main fic “When the two became one” that you'll find here: http://www.peelified.com/cgi-bin/Futurama/4-001005-1/
It is not necessary to read my main fic first but it help. (And you can always read my main fic after reading this.
WHEN THE TWO BECAME ONE.

Things could not be better; for once her life had a meaning. It was not like she imagined it years before but still; it was the greatest thing that happened to her. In the last few months, she found out who her parents were, she finally accepted to date with this delivery boy from the past and now they were living together.
- (Leela’s mind) – It’s Monday, time to get up and get ready for work. Still, the bed is comfortable, hot and Fry for once is not snoring very loud. Maybe if I open my eye I’ll see how great this day looks and it will motivate me to get up.
She opens her eye and … she froze in place. Where was she, that was not her bedroom, this was not her bed, and velour sheets what the… She fear to turn to her side but she had to look. She turn to her left and looked to the person lying to her side. Tall… Fat… Blond hair…
- (Leela screaming) – NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
- (Zapp) – Good morning lover! So you found a new way to wake me up today. But you know that I prefer when you do it the sexy way.
Leela tries to flee, seeing that she was naked, she hide herself under the blankets and look around her.
- (Leela) – Where are my clothes? What am I doing here?
- (Zapp) – What’s wrong baby, did we did “it” too hard last night. You were on fire. It’s still warm to the touch.
Leela has a repulsive look on her face. She sees a women’s DOOP space navy uniform on the floor and put it on. She scratches her hand on one of the badges, she look at it. It read: Lieutenant Turanga Leela. She sit down on the bed, it could not be possible. What was happening to her? Last night she went to bed with Fry and now she wake up beside Zapp. Did he…
- (Leela mad) – You kidnapped me!!!
- (Zapp) – Yes my dear, I kidnapped your heart… that night… 4 years ago. (He sits beside her) You came to me and never left. It’s true that time goes by faster when you are not alone and in love.
- (Leela) – What..? Wait, if I staid here, were did my friend go?
- (Zapp) – They left after you told them what we did that night. You told them to carry on their mission. But they did not make it back.
- (Leela) – They died?
- (Zapp) – Well yes of course! The planet imploded and they did not come back. Then one year ago we lost Earth too. She exploded after we received a S.O.S. message from headquarters about flying Brains. But because we were “busy”, we arrived too late.
- (Leela crying) – Fry… What’s all this? It’s not real. It can’t be. No I won’t believe this. Tell me the truth Zapp, this is just a bad joke right. Tell me…
- (Zapp) – That’s no joke, you and me are the most sexy space captain couple in the universe and …
Zapp was interrupted by the intercom beep.
- (Kiff) – Captain, you need to see this, (a small screen beside the speaker turned itself on) we are being chase by a wall of fire and we can not outrun it for long.
- (Zapp) – Kiff my good old friend, like always you are showing sign of weakness. Just send wave after wave of my men’s in space with fire extinguishers and stop bothering me.
- (Kiff) – But sir we can’t …
Leela is now looking outside the ship thru a window and fully see that wall of fire caching up with the ship. Zapp and Kiff were stiff debating on what to do. Leela get up and walks to the window. She presses herself against it and keeps looking out side. She only sees fire coming their way. She sees a bunch of men in spacesuits jumping out of the Nimbus and trying to stop the firewall with small fire extinguishers. They all died. Death, it looks good now. Maybe in death she would find Fry again? Maybe she would escape this? Was this her life or was it the other one? She did not care anymore, it would be over soon.
The ship was hit hard. The hull rip open and a huge explosion destroyed the ship. Leela was ejected in space. She did not understand why she was still alive. She was moving out of the firewall path and saw what was left of the universe. Most of it was gone, everything was burn down. What was happening to her? Why was she the only one left? No she was not alone. She saw him floating away from her. He was looking strait at her.
- (Leela) – Fry? Fry! FRY!!!
She kicks her feet trying to “swim” in his direction, but she’s not able to move. She’s stuck in place. Fry was moving closer now. He was not smiling, he looked sad. He looks at her again and speaks in a deep voice fill with echoes.
- (Fry) – Leela, I’m glad that you did not take that path back then. Look around you. If you had chosen to stay with Zapp or any one else, that is what our universe would look like by now. You and me must work together to keep what we like and who we love safe.
Don’t forget that Leela.
- (Leela crying) – Wait Fry! (He was fading away) Don’t leave me here. FRYYYYY!!!
Leela wakes up in her bedroom beside Fry. She was back. She looks around, got up and checks if every thing was ok in the apartment. Fry was sleeping like a rock, snoring like an old Beta-5 star cruiser on idle. She looks around the apartment for anything wrong or out of place but everything is fine. She gets back to bed. See looks at Fry for a good 10min before she take him in her arms and kiss him. He did not wake up but he had a stupid smile on his face now.
- (Leela’s mind) – It was just a dream. Thank god… Don’t you worry Phillip J. Fry, I’ll not leave you. Never…
Sticking his 3rd eye out of the laundry basket, Nibbler sees her fall asleep again.
- (Lord Nibbler) – It worked. She has received the coded message from the elders. Now it’s time for the “one” to do is part. All we have to do now is wait.
So was it good? I hope so. Please, leave feedback if you like it.
