Giggles and shushes filled the air as 2D led her slowly into the house.
"Noodz...yew 'ave to be quiet or we'll wake up Mudz." He whispered softly into her ear. His breath sent shivers down her spine as she smiled and whispered ok.
They started to tip toe towards the stairs when suddenly there was a loud thump.
"2D...what was that?"
Next thing they knew 2D was on the floor and an angry Murdoc turned on the lights.
"WHAT THE BLOODY FUCK A' YA' DOIN'?!"
2D looked up at the fuming man and gave a weak smile.
"Ya' both know wha' time it is? 2:00! IN THA' MORNIN'! WHERE THE HELL WERE YA'?"
"Murdoc-san stop yelling. You are probably-"
Noodle sent 2D a strong look of warning while Murdoc sent him a death glare he'd seen too many times to ever forget.
"What he means is you're probably tired and not quite in your right mind. You may misinterpret the story."
"I don' care. I wanna know."
Turn Yourself Around To The Sun (preview)It was around 2:30 in the afternoon and bright outside. Noodle sat on her bed as she slowly wiped the sleep out of her eyes.Turn Yourself Around To The Sun (preview)2 years ago in Settings More Like This
Recently she'd seemed to be sleeping like a baby.
No tossing. No turning. Not even the reoccurring dream of her having to kill that damn Cyborg.
Her dreams had been as sweet as ever.
She knew that she'd feel better again once she was with her family.
They seemed to make everything better.
Despite how much happier everyone seemed to be things seemed to be...uneasy.
It was kind of a eerie feeling that lingered above them all.
Many unsolved issues hung over their heads.
2D and Murdoc's tension seemed to increase more and more by the day.
Russel seemed as if he would never forgive Murdoc for replacing him with a machine.
They all still seemed too uncomfortable to even bring up the Cyborg.
Noodle's disappearance was still a mystery to everyone but her and 2D.
She trusted him enough to not kill Murdoc and to not share her story with Russel.
It wasn't that she didn't tr

This was the longest time he had ever been apart from Noodle. She would probably be all grown up now, were she still alive. He thought back to a time where he was afraid they were finished for good:Troubled Minds 5- Ocean Bacon4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
New York. An enormous city. Russel would spend hours just wandering the streets every day. It was 2003. After their success with Gorillaz, who knew where they could go next. But, for some reason, they had all separated. Russel had returned to New York, 2D went to California, and who knew where Murdoc went. Russel would rather not have known. Every so often, there would be a report on the whereabouts of Gorillaz, but it seems the world didn't notice their absence. Such is fame.
One day in early 2004, Russel was working in Ike Turner's basement on his hip hop album, trying to ignore the spirits that came out of the a

Gorillaz - I miss herIt was around 13:00 pm at Plastic beach. The whole forenoon had passed. Nothing had happened at all. Murdoc were in his study and worked or readied for something. He hadn't done much at all in a while now. He had let the blue haired singer out of his room and let him walk around the place a little. He couldn't stand the younger man's whining. 2D had begged Murdoc to let him out from his room. He couldn't stand the whale at all. Murdoc had let 2D out and told him to stay inside. If he tried to escape or anything Murdoc would come and get him back and lock him up for the rest of his life. 2D had only listen with a blank face and nodded. Then he had spent the whole forenoon by just walking around the place like an idiot. Murdoc had told Cyborg Noodle to keep an eye on 2D. 2D was now sitting on the floor in the studio and played on one of the keyboards. He always had enjoyed it but right now nothing seemed to cheer him up. Not even his beloved keyboard. 2D was kind of depressed for the momGorillaz - I miss her3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Troubled Minds 2- Encounter Russel sat on the dock, thinking about Noodle. Noodle was like both a little sister and a daughter to him. After all, he practically raised her, and he saved her life when they first met. He remembered that day:Troubled Minds 2- Encounter4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Murdoc grumbled and answered the front door of Kong Studios. A postal worker said, "'ere's yer package, mate. I'm gonna need a signature."
Murdoc scribbled his name and took the smallish FedEx box inside. On the outside, in neat handwriting, "Auditions for Gita; Onnanoko."
"What the hell does that gibberish mean?" Murdoc complained.
Russel and 2D walked into the room.
"Wot's going on, Murdoc?" 2D asked.
"We got a package, face-ache! What's it look like?"
"Hmm "Russel consulted a book on Japanese he was reading. "It says, Guitar, girl."
"Oh, goodee, summafink to replace that Paula!" 2D said happily.
Troubled Minds 8- Dive Russel listened to the Pirate Radio broadcast, quivering with anger. Murdoc didn't care if Noodle was dead or not, he made a new album without Noodle or him, and he was working on "something new." Russel heard the jingle of "Point Nemo FM" and knew where Murdoc was hiding. He bought a bit of navigational equipment, then prepared to jump off the dock. A final memory came to him.Troubled Minds 8- Dive4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Noodle and him were in her empty room at Kong. She had packed away all her things, preparing to head to the Maldives. Why had she taken everything, though? Noodle came to Russel. "I'm not sure I'm coming back Russel-ue," she told him. Russel was touched; "ue" was the suffix for parents.
"What do you mean? Of course, you are, aren't you? When 2D comes back, I know you'll follow him," Russel said.
"No, I, ah, don't think this video will go well. Something is going to go wrong," she said, with fear in her eyes.

"Luv, would ya please stop bouncin' around like that? It's annoyin'!" Murdoc yelled as he rubbed his temples. Last night he had been to another party and had a few too many drinks AGAIN.
"Well, do you remember?" she asked again. She had stopped bouncing around and was standing over Murdoc who was reclined on a chair, bathing in the sun. He lifted his sunglasses and glared at Noodle.
"Oh, I'm Noodle. Do you remember what we're supposed to do today, Murdoc? Hmmm? I'm just gonna keep asking you because I'm an annoyin' little girl!" Murdoc replied viciously. He lowered his sunglasses again and laid his head back on the chair, not bothering to give Noodle another glance. She felt tears stinging behind her emerald almond shaped eyes, and her face was burning. She backed away from Murdoc and walked over to the edge of the balcony,

This is supposed to be after Noodles "fake death"In El Manana. She ran to Japan.. and 2-D figuired out shes not dead and followed her. Dont send me hate mail this is what happens in my mind after El Manana.)
The teenage Japenese girl ran through the streets of Japan. She was tall, had purple hair that went over her eyes, and an army styled hat on. Her clothes were filthy and her face was bruised. She stopped in front of a resteraunt, her stomach growling. She hadnt eaten in days and wanted Noodles... Yes That was her name, Noodle. Noodle walked into the resteraunt and dug through her pockets. She pulled out some money and put it on the counter and talked to the man behind the counter in Japenese. He handed her a plastic bowl full of noodles and a chopstick and she started eating. There was some Americans eating at tables and they stopped to stare at her. "mommy whys that girl so dirty?" When Noodle heard a ten year old little girl say that she automaticall

In the margins there were doodles of 2D. Under the song's final lyrics was this message: I dedicate this song to 2D, whom I love. I want to be with him for the rest of my life. I hope he feels the same way about me as I do about him. One day, when I'm older, I'll tell him. ~Noodle.
2D pulled out his nub of pencil and wrote under it, in a messy scrawl, I love you too Noodle, and I'm going to destroy the fake one and find you. I'm going to get out of here.

Where on earth was Noodle?
He said 15 minutes. Not 90.
2D looked at his clock and came to the realization that it had only been 10 minutes. He felt as if his heart was going to burst of anticipation as he sat there.
Suddenly he heard footsteps coming from down the stairs.
He sat up and looked at Noodle as she gracefully took each step.
He looked at her from head to toe.
She seemed to be wearing 2 shirts and a jacket.
Her hair was neatly combed to reach her shoulders but was being pushed further down sunglasses.
"I'm ready to go."
"Noods, yew are aware I's hot outside?"
"Yes. I am."
"Noodle come 'ere."
Noodle reluctantly walked forward toward him.
"Take off yo' jacket. I's hot outside."
Noodle frowned slightly and did as he said.
"Fine. Now what?"
"Take off yo' shirt."

"Wot was that?" he yelled, until he heard it again and saw the radio on his dresser. He mumbled a cuss word under his breath and tossed it across the room.
"Since I'm already up," he started to reason, "I might as well go see that face-ache hasn't escaped yet."
Throwing on the same shirt he'd been wearing for two weeks now, Murdoc got up and rambled to his full-size mirror. He grabbed his giant bottle of gel and worked it into his hair haphazardly. Then he noticed something that scared him -one of the few things- a wrinkle.
I need to stop stressing out over... Murdoc started to think, but then stopped himself from finishing his sentence. He couldn't bring himself to.
Slamming the door behind him, Murdoc strutted out of the room on his heals. He pushed the open button to the lift again and again until it opened, then he cursed it and walked in. Murdoc poked the one for 2D's Bedroom then and tappe

He went down the enormous stairwell to his secret room, and put the packet in a microwave across the room. Three minutes later, the oatmeal/frosted piece/carrot cereal was ready for eating. He sat down at the war table and began to munch on the sickeningly sweet cereal. He hadn't had anything this sweet since the plane ride to Japan, so many years ago.
Murdoc got on the plane with the rest of his bandmates behind him. They strolled on the plane with confident smiles on their faces. Some of the passengers stopped and stared, particularly at 2D's blue hair and Murdoc's upside-down cross and greenish skin. One Japanese girl, about 15 or 16 stood up and pointed

Noodle woke up and realized at that moment someone came in her room the night before. Her guitar was gone, but her first guitar was in its place. Some of her stuff from KONG studios wa there that wasnt before and she hissed through her teeth, "2-D." She sat up and grabbed her guitar. Her Les Paul. She started playing a song then started going through her memory playing differant songs. Then she stood up, started dancing while playing and singing trying to make up a new song. She stopped and tried to sing like 2-D but quickly gave up and walked to the fire escape. She jumped down and walked around with her guitar. She remembered riding on 2-Ds back through the graveyard... She walked around and saw 2-D. He walked up to her. "Hi Noods..." She nodded. "konnichiwa" 2-D looked confused at first then chuckled. "oh that means hi... please dont talk to me in japenese."
"Technically it means Hello, Einstein!"

He was exhausted really.
Trying to gain Noodle back for the past couple of months was tiring.
Being so worried about her in general usually killed every bit of energy he had.
Yet, he felt like it was worth it.
Things since that night she found out had been very difficult for the both of them.
She'd moved back into her own room the morning after it occurred.
She'd completely avoided him for a while.
Every other night he swore he could hear her crying.
Once he heard her he cried himself.
Every time he heard her sobbing he wanted to hold her.
Tell her things would be ok.
Every time he tried to talk to her she'd try to avoid the conversation.
It would either end with her yelling at him in Japanese or him crying and her just staring at him.
Things were even more odd due to the constant phone calls they'd been getting.
A few times it was Paula calling for 2D.
Every time that happened 2D ignored the call and Noodle wasn't seen around the house for days.

He slowly closed it behind him as he pulled a fag from his pocket and slipped it inside his mouth.
It seemed very hard for him to leave Noodle asleep in his room.
He wanted to stay right there with her, but sometimes he needed a little smoke break.
A time he'd always used to clear his stress.
He loved the sweet serenity of the night and how the darkness left him peace.
That was one of the few things that made him feel peaceful besides Noodle.

"It's odd really..."
2D thought to himself.
"Murdoc is shitfaced and piss drunk a lot less often now days."
Truthfully, when Murdoc was sober he wasn't awful.
He never really was.

After a shocking and confusing (yet blissful) morning he wasn't focused.
He was extremely happy the next day was Saturday.

He could use a day of rest.
He heard a soft knock on his bedroom door.

"I love yew " Murdoc'd whispered into his ear with such heated passion the singer shivered and huddled even further into the other's arms. He pulled back sligthly to look into the glinting black and red eyes and the untapped love glowing in them was so intense that he could hardly fathom it.
'Please don't say I love you,

And they make my core tremble

He was slumped over on his bed, tortured by isolation, Android Noodle, and the whale outside. His crushing fear of whales paralysed him, preventing him from leaving the room. The advertisements rolled on and on, for useless things. There was a commercial for BBC; the story advertised was one on the success of Murdoc's Plastic Beach album. 2D turned off the telly.
