This is my second fanfic, I wrote it for shippy people, but non-shippys can enjoy too, and itís better than the first shippy fic(Fryís song), so enjoy Part one-Love will set me free.
Caption: You work so we don't have to.
Scene One: Outside Leela's apartment. Fry and Leela are facing each other and Leela looks annoyed. Its night.
Fry: (Practically begging) Leela, please come to dinner with me, just once. Please, you know I love you.
Leela: (Falters at the L-word, before regaining her senses) Will you stop axing me the same question?
Fry: Say yes then.
Leela: No Fry, I won't go to dinner with you.
Fry: But why not? After all we've been through; explain why I'm not good enough to take you to dinner once. Even after the opera, why Leela?
Leela: I can't do this, I'm sorry Fry, but I can't.
Fry: You can't or you won't? Actually, don't bother answering. It doesn't matter Leela, I love you but I can't deal with this anymore, I give up (turns and runs)
Leela: (whisper) But I think I lo... (sighs and walks into apartment) I think I love you too.
Scene Two: Fry and Bender's apartment. Fry comes out of his room and looks across to Bender.
Fry: (nervous) Bender, I need to ask you something.
Bender: Oblivious to fact that Fry is nervous) Axe me later meatbag, 'All my circuits' is on.
Fry: Please Bender, it won't take long. I just need to ask you a favour.
Bender: (turns round) What sort of favour? (sly note in his voice) and how much does it pay?
Fry: Hereís a twenty (hands Bender the money) I'm going for a walk. If I don't come home tonight and I'm not at work by 11 o'clock tomorrow, I need you to play this holo-disk in front of everyone. (hands Bender the holo-disk) Don't listen to it before then and don't follow me.
Bender: (turns back to 'All my circuits') Got it skintoob. (mocks salute)
Fry: This is really serious Bender; promise me that you'll do this.
Bender: Yeah, yeah, I promise.
Fry: Oh and Bender, if things go right, I won't see you again, so goodbye.
Fry sighs and walks out.
Bender: (to self) He'll be back, I've got his wallet.
Scene Three: PE boardroom clock shows it is nearly 11. Bender looks worried.
Leela: (PO) I swear I will kill Fry. I knew he was lazy, but honestly, he's later than Bender.
Bender: Bite my shiny metal ass.
Hermes: I know what you mean Leela; if da mon wasn't already minimum wage I'd dock his pay.
Prof: We also have a delivery that needs a delivery boy. Still, at least with him gone my experiments are safe.
Amy: And the ship too.
Clock strikes 11.
Bender: Everyone shut up. Fry didn't come home last night and now its 11 so I have to play this holo-disk.
Holo-disk starts up; a mini-image of Fry is projected.
Holo-Fry: Hi guys, up until a few minutes ago, you were all probably bad-mouthing about me being late again. Good news everyone, you donít have to worry about me being late ever again. Hermes wonít have to pay my wage, the Professorís experiments are safe, Amy wonít have to worry about me damaging to ship, and I wonít bother Bender anymore. And Leela, you wonít have to worry about saving my butt anymore. I wonít be lazy and stupid and immature. I wonít be begging you for a date anymore, or try to show you how much I love you. Because Iíve finally realised something. Iím a loser and a screw-up, I was in the past and I am in the future. So Iím giving up on life. I mean, whatís the point of living if I canít show the girl of my dreams, thatís you Leela, how much I love her. So by the time this has finished, Iíll be in the queue for a suicide booth, waiting to die. Please play Ďwalking on sunshineí at my funeral.
Amy: Gluck, I finally dump KifÖ
Leela: What? Why the hell did you do that?
Amy: (gets a dreamy-eyed look) So I can get back with Fry.
Leela: WHAT?!? But he loves me.
Amy: Splish Leela, donít shout. I know he loves you right now, but hopefully thatíll change, I mean, I am sexier. Besides, why do you care?
Leela: Because I like him and youíre a bitch.
Amy: Newsflash, youíre a one-eyed freak and I love Fry, so deal with it.
Leela: (looks fit to kill with her fists clenched.) You filthy little whore, you donít know love.
Amy: And you do? You frigid bitch!
Leela: Better frigid than a slut, Little Miss Yo-Yo knickers!
Leela and Amy both stand, looking ready to kill each other
Bender: Easy ladies, give time to take bets, Heh heh. (Both women glare at him)
Hermes: Sweet Zombie Jesus, is Fry serious Bender mon?
Bender: WhaÖyeah, I think so, I mean, he didnít come back for his wallet, and he did say he wouldnít see me again, just before he walked out.
Amy: And you let him go, Bender you bastard! (Starts to sob)
Bender: Bite my shiny metal ass; I did what I was told for once.
Leela: Bender, donít you get it. Fry could be dead because you let him go! (Amy starts to sob louder and Leela joins in.)
Bender: WhaÖHoly crap, what have I done?
Amy: (still sobbing.) Youíve as good as killed him you retarded asshole of a tin can! Thatís it, I have to find him and tell him how I feel.
Leela: Not if I find him first slag.
Both women rush out to find Fry.
Scene Four: Leela is frantically searching for Fry.
Leela: (yelling.) Fry! Fry where are you?
Leelaís mind: Probably dead, thanks to you.
Leela: Whatís that supposed to mean?
LM: Heís doing this because you rejected him again, because you donít love him.
Leela: But Iím not sure that I donít
LM: So you love him then?
Leela: Iím not sure. He can be so thoughtful, kind, caring, and helpful and heís cute to the point of sexy, but he can be so lazy, immature and stupid. He says he loves me but what if he doesnít and I lose him?
LM: After everything heís done for you, I think we can safely say he loves you and if you donít decide how you feel soon, youíll lose him anyway. Love is a gamble, you canít just look for guarantees or youíll miss out. If you really love him, then take a chance and tell him.
Leela: Youíre right. I do love him, I have to tell, if itís not too late.
LM: Itís never too late for love, now move your ass and FIND HIM!!!
Scene five: Fry is near to front of a queue for a suicide booth.
Fry: Well this is for the best.
Fryís Mind: Or not
Fry: I have nothing here.
FM: You love Leela.
Fry: But she doesnít love me, even after I wrote an opera for her.
FM: Is she worth dying for?
Fry: Yes, I canít live without her love, so Iíll put myself out of my misery.
FM: Crap, I didnít want to die.
Fry starts to step into the booth, whenÖ
Leela: PHILLIP J FRY, DONíT YOU DARE!!!
Fry spins around and steps towards Leela.
Fry: Leela? WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING HERE?!? ISNíT IT ENOUGH THAT YOU BROKE MY HEART? YOU HAVE TOÖ
Leela: to stop you making the biggest mistake of your life.
Fry: (bitterly) I made that one when I fell in love with you.
Leela: What do you mean? I didnít think it was a mistake to fall in love with someone who loves you back.
Fry: (glares at Leela) STOP IT!!! Stop playing mind games Leela, they wonít work anymore. I know you donít love me; I was never good enough, I tried my best to make you happy, even wrote that stupid opera for you, and tried to carry on playing even after I lost the devilís hands, all for you. But still, I was never good enough for you was I?
Leela: (flinches like sheís been slapped.) Thatís not true.
Fry: Then what is? Why reject me if you love me?
Leela: I was scared Fry, scared that you were too good to be true, that you didnít love me, and that if I let you in, youíd leave me and break my heart.
Fry: I would never leave you, Iíd be too lucky to get you in the first place. I love you Leela.
Leela: I was blinded by fear and pride before, but now I can see that, and I can finally tell you the truth, tell you how I feel, tell you that I love you.
Fry: You have no idea how happy youíve just made me; Iíve wanted to hear that for so long.
Leela: Shall we go then?
Fry: Go where? (Leela whispers something in his ear) Are you sure? We donít need to rush.
Leela: (kisses Fry passionately!) Weíre not rushing, weíre making up for lost time.
Fry: (under breath.) Yes!!! (Normal voice) Okay then.
Scene six: Fry is fully dressed and awake at 7:00am in the morning. He is whistling and making pancakes in Leelaís kitchen. He finishes the pancakes and takes them to Leelaís room.
Fry: (Lightly shaking Leela to wake her up) Honey, I made you breakfast and I didnít burn down your kitchen.
Leela: (wakes immediately to the smell of pancakes) Ah, youíre too sweet to me.
Fry: (blushes) Nothings too sweet for you, besides, I figured weíd need some sugar after all the spice in here last night.
Leela: (nearly chokes on a pancake) FRY!!!
Fry: Itís true
Leela: Mmm, well if you always cook so well, I think youíll be getting your spice.
Fry: How about a preview
Leela: Plenty of time for that, right now we need to get to work.
Fry: (watching Leela get dressed.) Are you sure?
Leela: (kisses Fry on the cheek.) Sure, the sooner we get to work, the sooner we get back here.
Fry: Okay then, letís go.
Scene seven: PE boardroom. Fry and Leela walk in, hand in hand. Amy glares at Leela, so Leela smiles smugly at Amy. While this exchange is taking place, Fry is surrounded by ecstatic co-workers.
Bender: Oh your god, youíre back. Donít you ever scare me and do that to me again.
Fry: Sorry Bender (hangs head)
Bender: Youíd better be, I was worried sick. What do you think you were playing at, (suddenly grabs Fry in a bear hug) I need you buddy. I was so scared of losing you, it was worst then when I had that emotion chip.
Professor: Yes, we were all worried. I for one need a delivery boy.
Zoidberg: Zoidberg is happy, his only friend has returned.
Fry: Whoís that then?
Zoidberg starts crying and scuttles out of the room.
Hermes: Iím just thankful Leela found you in time mon, we need you.
Fry: You do?
Hermes: Oí course we do, youíreÖ
Hermes is interrupted by Amy screaming at Leela.
Amy: I will have him, you canít stop me!
Leela: Like hell I canít, you had your chance and blew it. HE doesnít want YOU, HE wants ME, and I want HIM. I HAVE HIM!!!
Amy: BUT YOU CANíT KEEP HIM! HE WILL BE MINE!! WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD PICK A MUTANT OVER AMY WONG!!!
Leela: NEWSFLASH AMY! FRY LOVES ME, I LOVE HIM AND YOU ARE A SKANKY BIMBO!! YOU DONíT STAND A CHANCE SO DEAL WITH IT!!!
Amy: IíD RATHER DEAL WITH YOU, YOU ONE-EYED MUTATED FREAK! LETíS SEE HOW MUCH HE LIKES YOU WITH YOUR FACE BROKEN!!
Leela: THATíS IT! BRING IT ON AMY WONG, IíVE BEEN ITCHING TO KICK YOUR ASS ALL MORNING! IF ANYONES FACE IS GONNA GET BROKEN ITS YOURS, NOT THAT IT WOULD MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE, YOUíRE SO UGLY ALREADY!
Amy: AT LEAST IíM NORMAL; YOUíRE UGLY AND A FREAK!
Leela: AT LEAST I HAVE FRY!!!
Amy: NOT FOR LONG!!!
They are about to fly at each other when Fry steps in-between them.
Fry: Would someone please explain whatís going on?
Leela: SHE wants to take YOU away from ME!
Amy: Because SHE doesnít deserve YOU!
Leela: I deserve HIM more than YOU!
Amy: At least I havenít spent the last few years REJECTING HIM!!!
Leela: INSTEAD you spent them finding a new man for every week. Besides, HE knows why I did that. Just because YOU donít know the REASON doesnít mean that there ISNíT ONE!!
Both women look ready to kill each-other again so Fry has to interfere.
Fry: What about Kif, Amy.
Amy: I left him for you, I love you.
Leela: Donít listen to her Fry, she could never love you the way I do.
Fry looks into Amyís eyes searchingly for a few seconds then looks into Leelaís eye the same way.
Fry: Well that was easy. Okay, Iím really sorry Amy; I know you left Kif because you think you love meÖ
Amy: I do love you!
Fry: ÖBut the only woman I ever have and ever really will love is Leela, and now I know she loves me too, thatís a miracle, so I canít just let her slip away. Sheís all I want and ever will want in a woman. I love her and I never want to leave her, I want to marry her.
Everyone gasps and Amy starts throwing the universeís biggest tantrum.
Amy: NOOOOOOOO, NO, NOT LEELA, PICK ME, OH THIS SO ISNíT RIGHT!!!
Leela: (quietly.) Yes.
Fry: Did you just sayÖ
Leela: Yes Fry, if you really mean it, then yes, I will marry you.
Amy: DONíT DO IT, DONíT DO IT, DONíT DO IT!!!
Fry: of course I mean it, I really love you, and youíre the best thing thatís ever happen to me. Are you sure you want this though?
Amy: GOD NO, WHY DO YOU HATE ME, I LOVE HIM !!!
Leela: Of course Iím sure, I love you!
Fry: Then youíd better have this. (Slips a ring on Leelaís finger)
Leela: Is thisÖ?
Fry: Your old wedding ring, I found it after our first divorce and I kept it because I kept hoping that one day youíd wear it again.
Leela: I though it got lost in the time slips, (throws her arms around Fry) youíre the best fiancť a woman could wish for!
Fry: And youíre the best and most wonderful fiancťe a man could want. I am now officially the universes happiest man.
Leela: And Iím the happiest woman.
Amy: NOT RIGHT NOT RIGHT NOT RIGHT
Bender: and the unhappiest woman is Amy.
Amy stops screaming and throws herself into Bender, knocking him down.
Amy: Youíll be sorry, all of you. FRY WILL BE MINE. (Cackles like an insane person and flees the PE building)
Bender: What hit me?
Fry: A mad woman.
Leela: Speaking of mad, what are we delivering today?
Hermes: Stuff the delivery, our mission today is to plan your wedding.
End of Part One
Stay tuned for part 2- Snatched at the altar
Leela and Fry belong together, why can you people see it, goddamn you!!!!
