Hi, my name is Axis24 but I bet a lot of you already know that. I bet that at least some of you also know that I also write Phineas and Ferb fanfiction and have been advertising taking on another show for the past few weeks. Now I know I'm releasing this a little early but honestly, I can't stay up anymore. I am so tired from school that I simply can't. But no one cares about that right now, you all just want to read my disclaimer and the story so I'll just leave you alone for now.

(Star's POV)

It was yet another beautiful day at Echo Creek Academy and Marco and I had just finished our final class for the day. "You know, I thought that Miss Skullnick would actually teach us something today." Marco said as he followed me out of the classroom. Miss Skullnick had spent the entire class talking about how her latest date went, and because of her troll like form, it didn't go well. "I mean don't get me wrong, I enjoy having a class where we don't have to do anything, but that just means that we have to do all the studying ourselves."

"Oh, you worry too much Marco." I responded as I walked cheerfully down the hall.

"Yeah, that's easy for you to say." Marco said sounding depressed. "Do you even need to get good grades?"

I stopped and thought to myself. "Um … my mom said something about it, but I don't remember."

"You might want to check on that then." Marco said as he walked past me.

"Well it can't be that important if it's so boring." I said as I continued walking without a care in the world.

As we walked, Jackie passed by us, on her skateboard, headed in the same direction that we were. "Hey Star." She said as she passed.

"Hi Jackie!" I responded with a wave.

I watched as she turned a corner and Marco stood there with his head down. "Sometimes I don't think she even knows my name."

"Of course she does Marco." I said as I gave him a pat on the back. "She addressed you by name when you broke her last skateboard."

Marco gave me a slightly annoyed look. "Did you have to bring that up?" He asked.

I thought for a moment and realized my mistake. "Oh … sorry." An idea popped into my head and I began pushing Marco. "Well maybe it's time for you to talk to her." I said cheerfully.

"What?" Marco asked shocked. "I can tell you right now that's not going to end well."

"Nonsense." I said as I pushed him around the corner. "I'm sure that she secretly feels the same way about you Marco."

"S-S-Star?" Marco said after turning the corner.

I looked over his shoulder to see that Jackie was walking next to a boy with blond hair. "Is that … Justin?" I asked.

"Yes." Marco said, fear evident in his voice.

I looked at the two of them again, a little worried. "Well … I'm sure that they're just friends and there's nothing for you to worry about."

It was at that moment when I noticed Jackie holding Justin's hand and I heard what sounded like glass breaking. "I think that was my heart breaking." Marco said as he grasped his shirt.

I looked around and saw someone frantically trying to sweep up the remains of a broken vase. "Nah, it was just that guy." I said trying to cheer Marco up.

Marco turned around and began walking, almost like a corpse. "I feel dead inside." He said as he turned the corner again.

"Wait!" I shouted as I followed him. "The main exit is that way."

"I don't want to see them." Marco responded. "I'll go out the back way."

I looked at Marco, then in the opposite direction, if I followed Marco then I wouldn't be able to listen to Oskar's music, but if I went out the front then Marco would be walking home alone. I bit down on my nails and looked between the two options. "Oh what the hack, I can listen to Oskar's music tomorrow." And with that, I turned to follow Marco. "Wait up Marco!" I said as I caught up to him.

He turned around slightly to look at me. "Star?" He asked.

"I can't very well let my best friend walk home alone when he just had his heart broken, now can I?"

Marco smiled slightly. "Thanks Star."

Just then, a boy in a blue hoodie bumped into Marco causing both of them to lose their balance. "I'm sorry, I'm sorry." The boy said when he got his footing back. "I didn't mean to … I was just … I wasn't watching where I was going and … something."

I looked at the boy and noticed that he had glasses and disheveled dark red hair. "Oh don't worry about it." I said with a smile. "Marco's been through worse."

"Okay, that's good. Now if you'll excuse me I need to get going before the musical pain begins to play." He said as he rushed off.

"What was that about?" I asked. "What musical pain?"

"I haven't the foggiest." Marco said as he brushed himself off.

We continued walking and I tried to pick up our conversation again. "So where was I? … Oh yeah, I know that it might seem bad at the moment, but it could have been worse."

"How?" Marco asked.

"Well …" I began thinking. "She could have gotten together with Tom."

Marco's eyes went wide before he started shivering. "Thank you Star, I've always wanted to have horrible nightmares about Jackie and your ex."

"You're welcome." I said as I began skipping.

We left through the back exit and began walking home when Marco began to talk again. "How am I supposed to compete with Justin?" Marco asked. "He's a football player, AND he strong."

"You're a good fighter." I responded, trying to encourage him.

"I'm only a green belt." Marco responded.

"With a stripe." I added.

"Yeah, like that's impressive." Marco said as he hung his head.

"Jackie and Justin might not actually be together." I pleaded. "You never know."

"They were holding hands Star!" Marco exclaimed. "They were holding hands!" Marco sighed then turned back around.

I felt sad. "Marco look …" Just then, a portal opened in front of us and Ludo and his minions marched out.

"Ah, Star Butterfly, we meet again." Ludo said with a smug smile.

I shook my head. "Ludo, could you just … come back tomorrow or something?"

"No, I can't 'come back tomorrow or something.'" He exclaimed. "I'm here to take your wand and that's exactly what I'm going to do."

I looked at Marco, who still looked depressed, despite the fact that Ludo was right in front of us. "Ugh, fine. You ready Marco?"

"GET HER!" Ludo exclaimed.

Ludo's monsters charged and I pulled out my wand and pointed it at them. "Rainbow blast!" I shouted sending a blast of rainbow magic at them, colliding with Spikeballs making him fall on top of several other minions. Two of the other minions quickly ran around and started charging. "Rainbow blast!" I shouted again blasting one of them. I kicked the other one and jumped into the fray after Spikeballs got up. I quickly blasted two other monsters only for Bearicorn to try and jump attack me. "Antigravity annihilation!" I shouted, causing a ray beam to hit it. He floated for a second before instantly being sucked into the sky. "Well that didn't go as expected." I said as I looked at the last place I saw the Bearicorn before it vanished. I looked over to Marco to see Buff Frog charging him. "Marco, lookout!" I shouted.

Marco looked up, then stepped out of the way of Buff Frog's charge, causing him to crash into a lamp post. "Whatever." Marco said.

"Marco get your head in the game." I shouted before blasting another. "I know that you're upset, but there are monsters, you can mope later."

"Fine." Marco said as he back-fisted Buff Frog who had tried to sneak up on him

I blasted Man Arm who was trying to rush me then looked back at the Ludo's monsters. I was about to rush them when I heard the sound of Marco's phone. 'Space unicorn, soaring through the stars,'

"There's that awful ringtone again." Ludo exclaimed. "Seriously, why haven't you changed it?"

Marco pulled out his phone. "It's supposed to be ironic." Marco responded before answering. "Hi mom."

"Lemon geyser!" I shouted blasting lemon juice into Three-eyed Potato Baby's eyes, causing him to scream and run into a lamp post. "So what's up Marco?" I asked before blasting another monster with lemon juice.

Marco held up a finger as he listened. "Could you repeat that?" He asked as he back-fisted Buff Frog again. "Are you serious?" He asked.

I hit a monster over the head before looking back to Marco. "What's going on Marco?" I asked again.

"No way." He said happily. "Really?"

I blasted another before running over to Marco. "Marco, what is it? What's going on?"

"All right!" He exclaimed. "I'll be home as soon as possible." He hung up and looked over to me. "Star, let's wrap this up quick, we need to get home, and fast."

I sighed and turned to the horde of monsters who were charging us. "Teddy bear TIDAL WAVE!" I shouted causing a huge tidal wave of teddy bears to appear and sweep all of Ludo's minions away. "Now what is the big deal Marco?" I asked again.

"You'll see when we get home." He said as he grabbed my arm.

"You think you've won?" Ludo asked as he walked up to us. "Mark my words Star Butterfly, I"LL HAVE THAT WAND!" As he was ranting, Bearicorn fell from the sky and landed on Ludo.

"Well that worked out well." Marco said with a smile. "Now, let's hurry." He ran dragging me behind him, and although I was still curious as to what was going on, I was happy that Marco was now happy again.

Marco ran quickly and we managed to get home in less time than usual. "You still haven't told me what it is that you're so happy about Marco."

"You'll see." Marco said as he opened the door. When we got inside, I saw Marco's parents sitting with a girl with short blond hair, a light blue t-shirt, and jeans. "Stella!" Marco exclaimed as he walked over to her.

"Marco!" The girl exclaimed as she got up and walked over to him.

They hugged and I felt something odd. "It's great to see you again Stella."

"You too, Marco." She responded.

"Um … Marco? Who is she?" I asked.

They stopped hugging and Marco looked over at me. "Oh right, Star, this is Stella," He turned to Stella. "Stella, this is Star."

I walked over to her and offered my hand. "Nice to meet you Stella." I said as we shook hands.

"Nice to meet you too Star." Stella responded.

"Stella is another of the exchange students who stayed with us, once before." Marco explained.

I looked at the pictures to try to see which one she was.

"I'm on the top, third from the right." She answered.

I looked at the picture and my eyes went wide. "Oh …" I looked at her then back at the picture. "How long ago was this?"

"About five years." Marco's mother answered. "She's grown so much in that time."

"Yeah, I get that a lot." Stella responded.

Marco hugged her from behind. "It's good to see you again, Stella."

Stella placed her hands on Marco's arms. "It's good to see you too, Marco."

They stopped hugging and held hands. "Hey, let me show you the room where you'll be staying."

"Sounds like a plan." Stella responded.

Both Marco and Stella rushed upstairs, while I stood there with a strange feeling in my chest like something vanished from within me. "Hey … why is she about to kiss Marco in the picture? Were they dating or something?"

"Oh havens no." Marco's mom responded.

I felt a sense of ease come over me. "Oh, that's good."

"Yeah, they were too young for that sort of thing but they were close." Mr. Diaz added.

"What?!" I asked shocked. "I mean … good for them." I said as I forced a smile. "Marco's crush from school just got together with someone, so this is perfect for him."

Both of them laughed. "Oh don't worry Star." Mrs. Diaz began. "I'm sure that Stella won't get between you and Marco."

"I'm not in love with Marco!" I exclaimed.

"I meant your friendship, Star." Mrs. Diaz clarified.

"Oh … well … okay." I ran upstairs quickly and into my room. "Whoa, that was strange." I said as I sat down on my bed. "I'm not in love with Marco … I wanted to set him up with Jackie, and I was upset for him when Jackie and Justin got together." I looked at my door. "It must be because I'm jealous about another exchange student, like when Charlie stayed for a while." I sighed. "Yeah, that must be it … I mean I like Oskar, not Marco." I laughed. "I mean Marco's my best friend … and I'm talking to myself."

(No one's POV)

(Some unknown location)

It was a dark room, the only visible futures being a large mirror on one of the walls and a door on the opposite wall. The door slowly opened and a hooded figure walked into the room. The hooded figure walked over to the mirror and took to his knee. "Master, I have returned." The figure said in a voice that was disguised to the point that one could not tell gender, race, or anything else about them.

A dark silhouette appeared in the mirror. "Ah, very good my faithful servant, what do you have for me?"

"As you requested, I have been keeping an eye out and you were right, both candidates look promising." The figure responded.

"I know that, minion." The silhouette hissed. "That's why I told you to keep an eye on them."

"You are right master." The figure responded. "But I have to say that I've noticed some progress with … one of them."

"Progress?" the silhouette asked.

"Yes, but I would like to keep the specifics quiet in case of … prying eyes." The figure responded.

"Ah yes, we can't be too careful." The silhouette noted.

"Yes master." The figure responded. "But I can say that I think it is progress enough to … start taking a more active approach."

"I will decide if it is time to take a more active approach!" the silhouette demanded.

"Sorry master." The figure responded. "Don't be angry … but I already took a more active approach, and I think it caused the progress which I told you about."

"YOU DID WHAT?!" the silhouette demanded.

"I'm sorry, I'm truly sorry, I had to, it was … essential."

"If it ruins my plan-"

"Then you dump the whole thing on me and find another servant. You forget what I have at stake in this, and I have reason to stay as your minion."

"Yes … you do." The silhouette noted. "Fine then, I trust your judgment. But if you jeopardize my plan, then everything will be blamed on you and I will sever our contract."

"I understand." The figure said. "And I will not let you down."

Damn, I had a long day, I had to fix some placeholders that I had forgotten about, find a name for the story and damn was that annoying. But I digress, I will see you all next chapter.
