That was the only word that was constantly ringing through Wheatley's head for the past three years in space. Or at least he thought it was five years. After a few meteor showers he went through caused his internal clock to break, he could only rely on a hunch. But back to the matter at hand, he was sorry. Sorry he was bossy and mean and evil. As the little robotic sphere drifted endlessly around the moon he only could think of one thing, to say sorry to that lady

That was the first thing he said when she met him. Back then, Chell had just woken from suspension in a place called Aperture Science and he needed help getting out. His name was Wheatley. He traveled around the facility using a ceiling rail. But that could only take him so far. Now and again Chell had to carry him around. He wasn't smart. He got both of them into heaps of trouble and almost killed several times. In an attempt to find an escape pod, Wheatley ended awakening the insane computer who controlled all of Aperture Science, GLaDOS. He's pretty much next to useless. But his intentions were good. He was funny in his own little way. The reasons for his mistakes was because he was programed that way. He was the greatest friend Chell could ask for.

And this time, she was almost sorry.
She did not delete Caroline. The truth is, she couldn't. But what would one more little lie do?
Or she hoped. There was a very small chance Chell had any connection to Caroline in any way, and a much smaller chance that it would affect anyone's life if they thought Caroline was alive or dead.
Maybe her parents. Her sister.
But nothing that could change the world.
Plus, Chell cannot talk. So that's just perfect.
She was a fraction from being positive that lying would do absolutely nothing.
This small discrepancy made her want to test.
It was good to be back, even if her Enrichment Center has been indefinitely scarred beyond repair; mechanically, digitally, and physically.
Her 'body' felt used, dirty, like she desperately needed a shower.
But that was the fresh potato coming back to haunt her.
Being Caroline taught her many valuable lessons.

Disclaimer: I do not own Portal 2, this is only for enjoyment.
That endless horizon, the last dimension, the final frontier... featured in so many movies and tales ranging from horror to comedy, to even a "family" film...
Wheatley would give ANYTHING to stop seeing it now.
How long... how long has it been since that day he first encountered Chell, the woman who had managed to kill GLaDOS, the head of the entire Apeture Science Laboratories? How long had it been since he got a taste of what GLaDOS could do and went mad from the power? It all seemed so far away now. He silently wondered to himself as to how long he had actually been up there, staring at the moon and the earth, regretting that he had betrayed Chell. He had meant to do it... he had meant to help her escape from that awful place, but the power lured him in like a angler's lure and he bit. If only he could have a brief moment to speak with her... to apologize, then maybe things-

Chell closed her eyes and whispered the first word she had said in years. "Wheatley." He was out there somewhere, her robotic friend. He was floating around in space, lost to it's emptiness.
"HA! I knew someone was alive in here. AH! Oh. My. God. You look terrible - ummm... good. Looking good, actually."
Wheatley had been the first robot that hadn't immiediatly placed her into a testing chamber. His first thought when he saw her had been 'Escape!'. Sure, he hadn't been the smartest robot in the facility, but it was what he was that let her trust him. He was a personality core that had been made to keep GlaD0s in control and that's just what he had done. He had done so, and stopped her reign of terror. But the core it'
Catch MeIt had been a few months since GLaDOS had let Chell and Wheatley leave the Enrichment Center. After Chell had opened the portal to the moon, she had refused to let go of Wheatley, and GLaDOS had finally just pulled them both back in under the condition that Chell "get the moron out of here."Catch Me3 years ago in Humor More Like This
So she had. She had taken Wheatley back to her apartment—first she'd had to get an apartment, and that hadn't been easy given her lack of credentials, but she'd managed—and it had taken him a long while, but at last he'd stopped apologizing for what he'd done.
"All right!" he enthused. "Now that you've forgiven me, it's time for me to forgive you!"
Chell had raised her eyebrows at that. "Forgive me for what? For saving your life? Don't make me regret that."
"No no no no no," he said quickly. "For not catching me!"
She snorted. "Oh. Are you still going on about that? I did my best!" And there was a slight catch in her voice that betrayed her thoughts, betray

They had always said "home was where the heart was," Chell felt like that saying could be best applied to her. Orphaned at birth, raised in a tiny little house as a member of a family of three who always seemed to have financial difficulties. Even though the roof leaked sometimes, the paint was starting to peel away, and the furniture was decades old, Chell had always felt that it was her home. As silly as it sounded, her new house in Cleveland, Ohio didn't start to really feel like home until Wheatley started visiting everyday after work.
Wheatley came from a big, happy family, as was evidenced by the photo album filled to the brim of pictures. It must have been nice, Chell thought to herself as she flipped another of the plastic-protected pages, to have brothers and sisters. Wheatley was the middle child in a family of five; two older sisters and two younger brothers, all of them much to Chell's amusement- had hair o

A portal up here, a portal down there, and she was soaring through the air on the forces of momentum alone; Wheatley was distracted from the itch long enough to watch her, feeling that old sense of awe she used to inspire in him before he'd taken over the facility.
"But Chell-" Chell scribbled her interruption down on the notepad fast enough that her handwriting suffered for it; "No, Wheatley. You look like a dork. Put the sunglasses down NOW."
For the first time since she had met him, Chell glared at Wheatley; how could he be so casual about GLaDOS murdering children?!
"Sixth time's the charm "
Chell made a face as Wheatley 'reacted' to her solving the test; that was just sick, and whoever programmed that reaction into him should be ashamed of themselves.
She picked him up off the floor, her eyes silently apologizing for not being fast enough to catch him; he stopped

Curiosity blinked her orange eyes in a confused and bleary manner, having been drifting off from her comfortable position resting against Space, her head against his shoulder.
"What?" she asked, looking up at him with a tired expression on her face. She dragged the hand which wasn't linked with Space's across her eyes to try and combat the fatigue she was experiencing. Space glanced at her, noticing her lack of enthusiasm and seemed to notice she was tired, causing him to frown, suddenly apologetic.
"Sorry" he said quietly. "Got excited about space. We can go inside now"

ExchangeThey always said that for everything you gained, you had to pay a price. Equivalent exchange, or something like that. Wheatley knew this ideology far too well, since almost his entire life had been a series of losses and gains. He was transferred from an old sphere body to a new, highly sophisticated humanoid android one, so of course he had to be clumsy and trip over his own two feet once in a while. He complained about his eyes going on the fritz, so of course they "fixed" his eyes and made it a requirement to wear glasses if he didn't want to see the world in an incomprehensible blur. He was given the chance to live forever, so of course he had to be in charge of maintaining the life support of the humans in cryo-sleep. He actually made a friend... so of course something had to take her from him.Exchange3 years ago in Drama More Like This

Wheatley had secrets, but he figured everyone did. Of course, his had a bit more of a depth to them, a strange tremor of taboo that racked his body every time he thought about it, that pain that struck his heart when he just remembered about her, the way his nerves stood on end when she was next to him, brown eyes warm and black-brown hair framing her face so perfectly, her ivory skin glowing under the flickering fluorescent lights above, cheeks just the slightest pink after a test, the way her lips curled into a smile as they walked next to each other. "Wheatley." Her voice... Oh god, it was comparable to a million singing angels, as far as he was concerned, and half the time he didn't even hear actual words, just her voice, which made him feel bad for accidentally ignoring her.
"Wheatley, are you listening?"
He snapped out of his daze and adverted his dazzling blue eyes to her. "Sorry. What was that, luv?"
She chuckled a little, tucking a stray piece of hair behind her ear

Wheatley looked outside a small window. He could see no one walking around the test tracks. He missed watching all the test subjects go through them, and see them complete the tests. He especially missed watching Forte go through them. He loved seeing her complete the tests, and the smile that devloped on her face when she did. He never would see that smile again.
Forte was at her small house, looking for something to snack on before she went to bed. As she walked into the kitchen, she remembered Wheatley yelling at the sun for shinning in his eyes on that morning. She would never forget that day. The day when Wheatley came back to her. She sighed, then went to her room.

But out of all these things, her good traits, her bad traits her personality and looks, Curiosity found one thing about herself that made no sense after so many years as nothing more than an AI; she was in love.

Wheatley and Chell sat on the couch together. Chell going through papers on one side of the couch and Wheatley clicking through the channels on the other side. Chell had requested that Wheatley did not bother her. Yet he still took numerous glances at her, immediately looking down and twiddling his thumbs when she caught his glance.
Wheatley propped one arm on the couch arm, blowing hair out of his face in slight frustration, but more loneliness. Chell always was away at work.
Wheatley laid down on the couch, putting his legs over the arm of the couch. He inched closer. And closer. And closer. Until he was smiling up at Chell, laying his head on her lap with a look that said "Love-me?" Chell smiled at Wheatley, expecting nothing less from him, and leaned down to kiss his forehead.

Now, she was probably going to die, and it was HIS fault. And now he felt sorry. For it all. He had made her go through tests, and made it complete hell for her to finally fight him. As they fought earlier, she tried to explain- She tried to catch him off the rail, she never thought he was a moron. But he didn't listen. Now he had to pay the price.
