zooropa - part 4
"I'll leave you kids to yourselves now. I must be going now. Behaves__________________
yourselves, please!", the wizard man smiled, excusing himself.
"By the way.. my name is Zoizi-Paul.. y'know.. mix of both cultures.."
They all tell him their goodbyes and continue off where they left off.
"Bono here is a bit of a cheeky little bastard. He doesn't know how to control
himself.. or his mouth", Edge commented.
Kristen smiled. She obviously found Bono very charming. Who couldn't?
"Mouth? As in what exactly?", Adam questioned.
"What are you talking about? His mouth.. you know.. mouth", edge asked..
seeming confused... and irritated yet in a comical way... gesturing at his
Bono, Larry, and Kristen laugh.
"Well, he does like to kiss everything in sight and he's also a big mouth in
the verbal sense.. so I was wondering in which context you meant that by..",
Adam said seriously, adjusting his glasses, which weren't there any longer, by
Edge looks at Adam.. like "what in the fuck?" and ready to start cracking up.
"My mouth is mine. I can do what the hell I want with it, buddy", Bono said,
"I meant his big ass, verbally impulsive mouth. Then again, I guess I could
toss in the other as well..." edge said, smirking.
"Since you guys love talking about me so much....", bono started..
"Feck that!", edge joked.
"I think you're all in love with me...", bono concluded.
Adam spit out his drink ready to laugh and suprised for some odd reason. LOL
"Adam here's always been in love with ya, bono... not us though..", larry joked
from the back.
"yes, i wished all of those years you brought a lady up to dance with you on
stage that it was me, instead...", adam said sarcastically.
Bono gleamed. "Well, thankyou, my precious..." he said bowing.
Kristen was blushing in laughter.
"Yeah, we're .. from Earth. I guess we are really on another planet I am
assuming? and we have no idea how we got here.....and on Earth... we are in a
famous band which we call U2. anyways, not sure if we're known here on this..
what the hecks it called again?", bono forgot the name of the planet again...
"Octaligiopia", Kristen laughed.
"Octo..feck it..", bono decided to lazy out of it.. with a grin. making kristen
"Yup, I know who you guys are", she smiled, shyly looking down at her shoe for
"You do??" bono and edge asked suprised at the same time.
"Yup, you guys are known here. Very well, actually. Got a lot of fans 'round
here.", she answered.
"I sure remember you guys, how could one not?", smiling.
"Is that good or bad?", Adam laughed.. going back to sipping his drink.
"Good actually", Kristen smiled.. sitting down next to Bono.
"So, are you from Earth.,. or a hybrid.. or an Octalio... AHH feck..", bono
frustrating himself with the damn name again.
Kristen laughed at Bono's little quirks. Not sure what it was, but he sure as
hell had a spark about him that was hard to ignore.
"I'm from Earth actually...", she started.
"Oh.. same thing that happened to us, eh?", adam asked.
"Yeah.. I've been here for a long time. Zoizi took me in.. and has been a good
friend to me all this time..." she continued..
They hear a knock at the door.. interrupting them.
Kristen excuses herself to go check. Its her and Zoizi's friend Frida, who came
to drop off some muffins she made.
"Hey, guys! This is my friend Frida!", she said introducing them all.
"Hi all!" Frida greeted them all.
"I must be running now though. Got to get back to the kids. Enjoy the muffins!
I'll stop by tomorrow again.." she said, rushing out the door.
Kristen shut the door, laughing. "Yeah, she's got 4 crazy little kids and shes
always giving people muffins".
The guys all laughed.. eyeing the muffins.
"Sure!" they all said simultaneously like kids themselves.
They all ate.. and chatted for a long while. Drank some alien wine, and just
"Just like a hipper version of Dublin, eh guys?" Kristen joked.. holding up a
glass of the alien wine.. in which larry drank too much of and was burping up a
"Nothing beats Guinness.." bono stated.. holding up his glass..drinking some
"Goddamn, I need a smoke right now..", he added. "Anyone got any?"
Kristen shook her head no and Adam lectured.. "Bono.. come on, I gave them up..
why cant you?"
"Because. I dont want to.", bono said.
"I'm gonna miss Dublin...." larry said.
"We'll get back. Trust me.. we will.." bono said. he knew they could. if he had
anything to do with it.
they all looked at him like.. "yeah.. sure..."
"So... what happened to you? How did you get here?", bono asked kristen..
becoming very interested in her story and learn more about where they are...
and how it was like for her.. and also.. very interested in her in general. he
was beginning to really like this girl. he had felt something click between
them from the start.. either way, he knew they'd be good friends.
"it was 5 years ago. i was visiting a friend of mine, and went upstairs to use
her bathroom. she had this beautiful big window in there higher up.. and it was
opened. a very beautiful spring day. clear and blue sky. i hear a strange
buzzing outside the window.. and it wasnt like a bug or anything... but it was
more like a loud static sound. i look outside and the noise got louder and
louder. next thing i know, the ground starts shaking and i see this huge
silvery object hovering outside the window. damn, the thing must have been 2
cars length and had weird looking cone-shaped things sticking out from all
ends... i squinted my eyes to get a better look, as the sun was so bright
shining against it.. and then a bright light emerged from the middle of it
and.. the next thing i knew.. i ended up in a field here.. right down the lane
from Zoizi here."... she said.. recalling the odd, yet painful memory.
the guys were silent, and listening intently.
"i literally had a nervous breakdown about it all. if it werent for zoizi and
some other good people ive met here.. i dont know what i would have done. its
hard to convince yourself that this is really happening...", she added..
feeling as if she were about to cry.. but she didnt like to show her tears much
anymore. she learned to hold stuff in... out of fear of her own emotions.
bono could tell... and reached out for her hand, gripping his fingers around
she looked up at him suprised. she saw the sincerity in his eyes.. and the
warmth of his hand... she gripped back.
"if you dont wanna talk anymore about it.. you dont have to. its okay...", bono
said softly next to her.
she shook her head.. "no, its okay", she said.. confidently.. and feeling a bit
better now... she felt like she could open up to these people, and felt she
needed to tell them some things she'd learned while here.
"I guess Zoizi told you guys all about the book and the king and queen
here..?", she asked.
"Yeah.. he told us about it. We're all still trying to.. digest it all...",
bono said... still holding her hand.. and she suddenly realized she was still
gripping back. Edge noticed this... and felt a pang of slight jealousy all of a
sudden. He didnt really know why.
Larry was sitting in an odd position in the odd chair and fell off of it,
trying to adjust himself on it... distracting everyone in the room... snapping
everyone out of it.
"Fuck!", larry cursed.. standing back up again.
Adam shakes his head at him.. "Would you like me to help you sit, Lar?"
"Fuck off", larry's favorite response.
"You might wonder how a bunch of guys like us could have ever survived in a
band for this long..." bono laughed. The atmosphere started lightening up.
She was a fan of theirs... but not that big of a fanatic. She had some of their
albums.. and funny thing is, she had always previously thought of Bono as a
pain in the butt, and he annoyed her, and thought that he was stuck on himself.
But... in reality, he sure didnt seem like that at all, actually... now meeting
him in person. he was really growing on her. she was curious to get to know him
seeing them... it gave her a sense of normalcy.. of her life back on earth..
memories, and gave a stronger realization that she was not dreaming all of
this... stuck on an alien planet stuff. even though she'd never met the band..
she in a sense felt like she had always known them... and it was very
comforting. but she also felt like she'd just met 4 brand new good friends.
they were bonding.
they all loved her as well. she was just like "one of the guys".. and had a
great sense of humor and they all clicked nicely.
"So, let me ask. Are you a U2 fan?", bono asked.. grinning this sly little
"HA HA HA HA That's a horrible question to ask", Adam giggled.
"Nah.." she laughed, joking.
"No?", bono started to look kinda sad and shocked.
"Ok, a little bit.." she said.
bono still kinda pouted... not pleased.
"Yes i think you guys are great. and always have. i guess i am a fan.." she
smiled.. giving bono a wink.
edge started laughing.
"So who's your favorite member?" bono asked winking back.
"Adam", she said.
"AHAHHAHAH!!" edge almost shit himself.
bono looks at him "Its not funny, damn you"
Adam perked up. "Why thankyou!"
"And not me?", bono asked.. looking very sad. sad puppy dog eyes. "why not?"
larry was cracking up now.
Kristen loved this teasing.
"His big mouth. thats what!" edge joked across the table.
bono gave him a pissed off look.
"Ok, and edge.." she added.
edge sat back, crossing his arms in triumpth.
"a tie between adam and edge.."
bono started getting all depressed. heh. scowling at edge as edge was basking
in the glory.
"Ok, and larry..."
"HA!" larry laughed.
"Odd one left out, bono. finally! suits ya right", edge joked.
kristen was silently snickering to herself.
this was a fun test.
bono couldn't believe it. "ahh.. fuck you all. you know she fancies me.."
"stop trying to convince youself of that", edge laughed.
kristen thought of them all as her favorite member. they were all as one entity
to her. an equal whole.
"and of course.. bono.." she finally said.
"I dont believe ya..", he said.. sipping more wine. scowling jokingly.
edge couldnt stop laughing.
"you're all my favorite... i cant choose one. that'd be horrible.. and you all
are part of the puzzle and i admire all of you", she said.
bono knew she was joking around now. but yes.. he was worried his ego might
have a little.. bruise earlier. lol.
"youre probably thinking dirty thoughts about me right now, i'm sure", bono
teased... looking down at his drink.
kristen chuckled. "nope. i'm not." trying to keep in a laugh.
"well we know hes having dirty thoughts about me", edge laughed.
"feck off, baldy", bono scowled.
kristen got off on this whole thing. and gave a little shy blush towards bono,
giving him a wink. making eye contact. a little non-verbal assurance that he
was OK in her book, for sure. he smiled. his ego intact. LOL.
all laughs and joking about lasting a while.
after all settles...adam, larry, edge all decided to look more at the book
Zoizi showed them... and bono finally found an un-used single smoke in his back
"Hey, im gonna go get a smoke outside.." bono announces.. holding his cig very
"yeah, go do that.." edge joked ushering him out there with a gesture.
"Hey, i'll go with you..", kristen stood up and said.
bono was suprised.
"You smoke, too?"
"Hahaa nope... just thought I'd give ya company, thats all..."
Bono grinned ear to ear, linking her arm in his and leading eachother out the
door. "I'd like that very much", he smiled.
