By Go-a-Green-a

Author's note: Yo! I was just on PEEL and someone had said something about Sean then my fic (by the way I know it wasn't of the highest quality but I wrote it at 2:00am so I'm fairly happy with it... F.Y.I. I acually happen to be writing a book set in the future only my book is... well, sorta dark... sorta REAL dark....it ain't a futurama future) he alsotalked aboutMichelle and I got the most brilliant idea! So here it is! (there will be more don't you worry)


Outside PE

Fry stood before the Planet Express building. He sighed, "I don't know why I even try. There's no way she could ever love me. Bender was right. There are so many great things about Leela and so many things wrong with me...." He was about to turn around and walk back to his and Bender's appartment to pack up and leave town when he stopped. "Hrm, maybe I could know what might have been." He glanced around, and once he knew that no one was watching, he ran toward the PE building.

Once he was inside, Fry searched the floors for the Proffessor's experiments. "Aha! Here's the door I'm looking for!" He stood outside a door labled: EXPERIMENTS. YES, THAT'S IT. JUST HORRIBLE EXPERIMENTS THAT COULD DESTROY THE WORLD. ENJOY! Fry turnd the door knob slowly and entered. The room was empty. "Perfect." He glanced at several of the devices, including a lava lamp with an eyeball inside and a vortex in the wall labled: GATEWAY TO HELL GONE HORRIBLY WRONG, untill he reached the contraption he was looking for. "Ah, the What-If machine! Okay... here I go." He pushed the button and watched as the screen turned different colors as it loaded.

It was ready. Fry bit his lip, not knowing if he realy wanted to know, but finally his curiosity got the better of him. "Okay... What if Leela loved me- Phillip J Fry?" The machine lit up then went black with an ERROR sign printed in bold letters on the screen. "Hey! You stupid machine! I said, What if Leela loved me!?"

The screen began flashing then a robotic voice said: "Error! Error! You can only ask what-if questions!"

Fry looked puzzled. "Huh?"

The machine lit up again. "The question you have asked is not valid!"

"Huh?"

"It is not a what-if question if it has all ready happend. Idiot." With that the device shut off.

"Stupid piece of- wait! Already happend? That must mean she-" He was cut off in mid sentence as someone knocked on the door down the hall. With a sigh he pressed the button to oppen it. His jaw dropped as he saw who it was.

"Oh, Fry! I've been with six guys and it's all gone wrong! Thank God I found you!"

"Wha? Michelle- umph!" He fell backward as she leaned in and kissed him.


Leela raced back to PE with Bender huffing behind her. "Leela... why do you... have to... run so fast?"

"I told you! I think I ruined Fry's life so we're going to fix it!"

Bender caught up with her. "Kay, but there's just one thing wrong with that sentence."

"And what's that?"

"The part about 'we'." Leela sighed, grabbed his arm and yanked him forward, sending him spinning into the door of Planet Express, with his head flying off.Leela ran to catch up.

"I say we just let him figure it out! There's no need to bother me while I'm "dusting" your stuff!" Bender said as he put his head back on.

"Fine. Go. But don't be asking me for any favours!"

Bendersped off, yelling: "Can't do!" as Leela rolled her eye and grunted. She was about to open the door when a hand tapped on her shoulder.

"Sean!?" She fell into the door and it opened. Unable to stop, she continued to fall until something on the floor broke her fall.

"Ow!" Said the floor (or what she thought was the floor).

As Leela looked up, she saw Sean's face starring at her with a cruel smile. "If my soul can't sit naked on your couch then no one's can."

"Huh? What do you-" She suddenly realized what had broken her fall. "Fry? Who's that!?"
