Sorry I was so Stupid But You Can't Change This

Sorry I was so Stupid But You Can't Change This

I do not own Guardians or the cover image.

Why can I talk to you right now? And who am I?

I am Peter Quill, aka Starlord. I can talk to you because I'm dead.

You want to know how? Okay. I'll tell you.

2 months earlier...

The team and I were on a mission from Nova Prime

The mission was simple. Go in, find the location of the bad guy, get out.

Leave it to me to find away to mess things up.

Gamora and I were in the control room she was on the computer looking for the location of... hold on... I can't remember the person's name. All I do remember was that he was some kind of thief.

She was looking through the files on the computer and I was fighting off the guards.

I thought I had fought off the last one. So I turned my back on the door and looked over Gamora's shoulder.

That was my mistake. I was focussed on the screen. And I didn't hear the last guard come up behind me. I didn't hear him pull out his knife. But I did feel it when he pushed the knife in between my shoulder blades. I fell to the floor, writhing in pain.

This alerted Gamora. She turned and when she saw the situation she took her own knife out and quickly stabbed the guy in the heart.

"Peter. You okay?" She asked with slight hints of concern in her voice.

I nodded even though I wasn't okay. She quickly went back to the computer. I pushed my back against the floor as hard as I could to try to halt the blood flow. She quickly finished the computer and pulled out her flash-drive. As us Terrans called them. She stood up and turned. This time she looked scared.

"Peter. You lied. You're not okay." She said as she kneeled next to me.

"I guess not." I said with the slightest smile on my face.

She carefully turned me over to examine the wound. I remember her look of fright and sadness.

"We need help." She stated.

"Yeah no kidding." I replied.

At that moment, what scared me most was my voice seemed to be getting quieter. And I wasn't trying to talk quietly.

Gamora ran to the computer and picked up her communicator.

"Drax? Groot? Rocket? Anyone? We need help! Peter's in trouble!" She yelled into the communicator.

"What do you mean Gamora?" The deeper voice of Drax came through the communicator.

"Peter's been stabbed!" She sounded frantic. But my hearing was fading and so was my vision.

I needed to talk while I still could.

"Gamora?" I called for her as loudly as I could.

She turned to me. To my surprised she had tears in her eyes.

"Sorry I was so stupid... But you can't change this." I told her.

She came back over to me and kneeled next to me.

She moved her face closer to mine until our lips touched and she kissed me. I kissed her back.

She moved away. She was now clearly struggling to hold back her tears.

I very faintly heard loud footsteps hitting metal. Probably the others. My vision was growing darker by the second.

"Quill!" It sounded like Rocket. But I could barely hear anymore.

I focussed my eyes on Gamora. If I was going to die. I wanted her to be that last thing I saw.

My eyes closed. I couldn't keep them open any longer. I felt Gamora shaking me. I faintly heard her calling my name. I heard her crying. Then my hearing disappeared entirely.

Then it became official.

Starlord was dead.

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.

kwilliams: I am an avid reader, and I do mean AVID and few indie authors capture my attention the way you have. I absolutely fell in love with these characters and their story. I'm usually not a fan of the cliff hanger endings (be it a series or not), but this one made me download the Kindle app just so I c...

Katy Rayne: i really enjoyed this book. i have to say i didn't know what to expect, but with every chapter that came something crucial to keep you reading happened. I was disappointed with the ending if this is for another book i will defiantly carry on reading the next book.

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!

rihannabkj2: Great story,I can hardly stop reading this novel. it shows that compassion and love can still exist after so many years between two persons. I most say well done to the Author who wrote this book. Others should read this book inorder to know that there can still be LOVE among two persons no matt...

SandraHan1: This story is very descriptive, with vivid scenes from the very beginning, which made for a good scene setting. I love the symbolism in names, such as “Naysayers”, “Hadd”, etc . The story itself is revolutionary, intriguing, emotional and exciting. I was very pleased to see that there is a happy ...

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

annie08c: I really like this story, I can relate to it a lot and with how she feels, the boyfriend and the events that happened but I'm a little bit younger. It was really good plot, really liked how you stuck to the topic and you had a new title for every chapter making me guess what's going to happen. Ma...

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

jessiehs: This was absolutely amazing. I loved how it went back and forth between perspectives. I actually cried at the end I was so happy. This was amazing. I can't even think of another word to describe it. Thank you for writing his.

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...

Marijana1: The melancholy present throughout this story has the power to influence and etch into the minds of the readers, to stay there and refuse to leave even after they have finished reading the story. This is a deep, powerful story, making the readers wonder about everything – about love, about their e...

zoheusher20: What more can I say? The writing style and little details drew me into the book and for the entirety of the story I was Juliet. I felt her turmoil and emotions and every trouble or triumph as they arrived. This story was very different and had quite a few little but unexpected twists that made it...

Jennifer Sibley Jannise: So, I originally read the book because my daughter asked me to. However, I read it in 2 days and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is well written and thought out. If the author writes and publishes any more books, I would definitely read them.

SPepper: I had a hard time putting this book down even to go to sleep. The story is compelling and beautifully character driven. I hope author will make this a series.
