Sparks Fly!

By Brianna A Watson

Drama / Romance

Sparks Fly!

                                              Sparks Fly!

Please know that I had to change a few words in the lyrics because it makes no sense if the "Get me with those green eyes" if Brick has red eyes. It's just a small little changes so... Yeah.


A red-haired girl with unusual pink, rosy eyes was laying in her bed; daydreaming about a red-haired boy with red, crimson eyes and hat. Ever since he and his brothers started at Pokey Oaks High School, he has been in every AP classes that has the girl in. He sits next to her and tries to spark a conversation with her. She ignores his attempts, but couldn't help thinking about a future together.

She knows that it wouldn't happen since she is a heroine, leader of the Powerpuff Girls, Blossom Utonium. The boy with the red hat is her counterpart; Brick Jojo. He's a villain, leader of the Rowdyruff Boys, and wouldn't even give her the time of day.

When Blossom thinks about him, she has the urge to cry; because she knows that they have no future. It sends a slight pain to her heart, but she remains strong; for the 'Puffs.

But in school, she has noticed how the way he walks is a thunderstorm to her. She is like the house; the warm and cozy place. She feels like she should be running from him, but she believes she won't get far.

One day, Brick stood in front of Blossom and talked to her; like a human-being. She couldn't stop her mind from picturing her and him together; her running her fingers through his hair; to their first date in a movie theater; to their first kiss; to their first time. And, when she pictured the last one, she blushed a bright red.

Then, she crushed those thoughts down and listened to him speaking; hoping he hasn't looked into her eyes and saw the images in her head.

The way you move is like a full on rainstorm
And I'm a house of cards

You're the kind of reckless that should send me runnin'

But I kinda know that I won't get far

And you stood there in front of me
Just close enough to touch

Close enough to hope you couldn't see
What I was thinking of


Blossom is standing under a pavilion, watching the rainstorm. She was thinking of Brick kissing Berserk, her evil female counterpart, on the sidewalk. She fights back a sob as she feels a huge amount of pain in her heart.

When Blossom is alone in her room, she writes out her pain inside a journal. She also writes down how she is very jealous of Berserk. She can't help but feel that Brick just wants to be friends with her; nothing more.

Blossom is just sitting in the music room, playing sad songs on her guitar; she was singing a bit too.

Blossom has a spare hat of Brick's, that he lent her while she was standing out in the pouring rain.

Drop everything now, meet me in the pouring rain
Kiss me on the sidewalk, take away the pain

Cause I see sparks fly whenever you smile

Get me with those
red eyes, baby, as the lights go down
Gimme something that'll haunt me when you're not around

Cause I see sparks fly whenever you smile


Berserk dumped Brick a week later and he has been coming to Blossom to cheer him up, a lot lately. She would take off his hat, running her fingers through his hair, playing her guitar, etc.

Brick would often play "On-Off" game, meaning that one person would have to turn on the light-switch and the other person does crazy poses.

Blossom would be staring at Brick and daydreams of the future once more. Her sisters would think that the pink-eyed shouldn't feel affection toward the enemy, but she does.

Brick looks at Blossom and realizes why it didn't work out with Berserk; because he loved her, Blossom Utonium. And, despite him being Brick Jojo, he planned to tell her some day. Just not today. Maybe.

"Um..." He says, stuttering a bit. "C-can I s-see your r-room?"

Blossom blushes bright red, thanking her father, Professor Utonium, had left to do some bonding time with Baby Blue and BC. She takes Brick's hand inside her, feeling a tiny spark from it. So, she heads upstairs, her directing him to her room. She feels entranced in his presence.

I run my fingers through your hair
And watch the lights go wild

Just keep on keepin' your eyes on me

It's just wrong enough to make it feel right

And lead me up the staircase
Won't you whisper soft and slow
I'm captivated by you, baby
Like a fireworks show


Two years later, the two red-heads have married and heading off to their honeymoon. Boomer and Bubs' wedding is a week after theirs. They're getting married on the beach during a sunset; romantic isn't unusual for them. Although, Buttercup and Butch will have their wedding the week after the Blues'. Their wedding will be on the Yankees' stadium. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Blossom and Brick have arrived at a 5-star hotel, holding hands. And she looks at him, a bit nervous.

"I-I don't know, Bricky," She says, "I-I'm scared that it might hurt..."

He smiles reassuringly at her, gently laying his hand on her cheek. "It will at first..." He says, "but you can always inform me if it hurts too much."

She smiles back at him, feeling nothing but love and happiness for her new husband.

He leans down, he's a head taller than her, and kisses her.

Then, the kissing turned to a full-blown make-out session. And now she has something to always remember him by; the day she lost her virginity to him.

Guess what? She doesn't regret it. Because all she felt was the love and attention for him.

She loves seeing his smile, day after day. Whenever she wakes up in the morning, that's all she sees; his smiling face.

Drop everything now, meet me in the pouring rain
Kiss me on the sidewalk, take away the pain

'Cause I see sparks fly whenever you smile

Get me with those
red eyes, baby, as the lights go down
Gimme something that'll haunt me when you're not around

'Cause I see sparks fly whenever you smile

And the sparks fly Oh baby, smileAnd the sparks fly


                           And they lived happily ever after...

                                               The End
