This is it guys, the very last chapter. I really hope you love it, and be warned, there's a long authors note on the bottom. Here we go!


I gaze shyly at the four surfers in front of me, blushing at the complement SeaCat gave me. Just like when I met Kiki, I was freaking out on the inside, but I made sure that I looked calm and cool on the outside.

"Thank you," is all I say, afraid that I might say something stupid and ruin this chance of meeting and befriending the characters of my favorite movie.

Tanner moves to the front of the group and flashes me his sparkling smile. My blush deepens as I smile back, though I'm pretty sure my smile isn't nearly as nice as his.

"Hey, my name's Tanner." He turns around and gestures to his friends as he introduces them. "That's SeaCat, Rascal and Giggles." SeaCat and Rascal smile at me when their names are said, and Giggles waves her hand excitedly to me, the fringe on her bathing suit shaking slightly. I wave my hand shyly at all of them, still too afraid to say anything.

"Hi, my name's-" I stop for a second to let myself think. This is a new world. I can be anybody I want to be here, I don't have to be Quanika 'Nikki' Bennett, the orphaned girl who shut everybody out, I can be someone new, someone I want to be. Quanika Bennett can be the actress who played me.

"My name is Tiki." Tiki. In my opinion, that's the perfect name for me, and it's who I want to be. And I also want a name that reminds me of my best friend, the reason why I'm here, though by the time the sun sets, I'm pretty sure I won't remember who Kiki is, because I'll be completely apart of the movie, but I hope that in some way, it'll show Kiki how much she means to me, even if we won't know each other.

"Tiki. That's a really cool name, it sounds like a surfer name, are you a surfer?"

"Yeah it's my favorite thing to do." The smiles on their faces grow larger when they hear this.

"Really? That's our favorite thing to do too!" Exclaimed Tanner. He gasped suddenly and said, "you should totally go surfing with us, the waves are huge!" I giggle into my hand at his enthusiasm. Tanner was always one of my favorite characters because of his childish innocence.

The others looked at me expectantly, and felt myself nod my head happily.

"Yeah sure, but I don't have a surfboard, you see I just moved here, and I don't have a lot of stuff." I say in disappointment. I just now remembered that I don't have home...or anything else for that matter.

"That's ok, you can borrow one of ours, we have a bunch of them," Giggles said. My smile returns and I nod my head.

Rascal and SeaCat grab my hands and lead me to where they were all hanging out. They headed over to Rascals car to get their surfboards, and as I waited, I noticed that my bathing suit had changed. I now wore a sea green pin up one piece swimsuit, super cute new sandals, and a brand new seashell necklace, with various other seashells decorating it, and although my hair stayed loose and flowing, when I ran my hand through it, I was shocked to feel the silky smoothness of my brown locks.

I could get used to this, I thought. I still can't believe I'm actually here!

After they got their boards, Giggles lent me one of the many boards they had, and we headed out.


We all surfed for two hours before I suggested we take a break, and as we walked around the beach, I got to know them a bit, and before you know it, we all became fast friends. I was actually surprised that they had welcomed me so quickly into their group, because they had known each other for for a long time, and even though they just met me, they acted like they'd known me for years. It was both exciting, and slightly overwhelming.

I heard my stomach rumble, and quickly covered it in embarrassment. The others chuckled at my hunger, and I felt my cheeks burn.

"Why don't we go to Big Mommas for something to eat," SeaCat suggested. "And while we're there, you can meet more of our friends."

"Yeah that sounds grea- wait what?" I asked, suddenly feeling very nervous. I wasn't ready to meet all the surfers that hung out at Big Mommas. And what if the bikers were there, I certainly wasn't ready for that!

"Uh, y-you know, I c-can eat later, I'm not that hungry." I stumble over my words. They look at me with confusion etched on their faces.

"No it's ok, I'll pay for the food if you don't have any money," SeaCat offered.

"No It's not that, it's just...I don't think I'll belong there," I say, deciding to just tell them the truth.

"Don't belong," they all say at the same time, looking even more confused. Tanner shakes his head and chuckles.

"Every surfer belongs at Big Mommas," he says and slings his arm around my shoulders, the others all voicing their agreement as they led me to the restaurant, me arguing and complaining the whole way, as a song began to play.

Tanner: There is nothing complicated

About the way we live

When we got to Big Momma's, a few surfers were already there, and when they saw us, they waved their arms for us to come over. Tanner nicely shook his head and showed me around as he sang.

We are here for each other, happy to give

All we have we share

And all of us, we care

So come on

As the band started to play, all the surfers got up and started to dance, while some of them began tossing around beach balls. Giggles waved her hand for me to join, but I gently shook my head and walked around observing the scene as they continued to sing.

All: Welcome to our family time

Welcome to our brotherly time

We're happy giving and taking

To the friends we're making

There's nothing we won't do

Welcome to our family time

Rascal: Welcome into the family

All: Welcome to our happy to be time

SeaCat: We're so happy

All: This is our festival

You know, and best of all

Rascal: Best of all

All: We're here to share it all

While they sang, one of the surfers tossed a beach ball in mine and Giggles direction. I tried to catch it but it slipped out of my hand, and I managed to bounce it around a few times in my hands before I accidentally tripped over a chair. I looked at Giggles and the other surfers, and smiled awkwardly. They all looked at each other before bursting into mad laughing fits, but I knew they weren't trying to be mean.

Giggles: There's a bond between us

Nobody can explain

It's a celebration of life

SeaCat: And seeing friends again

While SeaCat sang his part, he picked up a piece of tomato and threw it at Giggles, making it stick into her hair. She glared playfully at him and threw a piece of lettuce at him, and he held his hands up in surrender.

Rascal: I'd be there for you

To avoid anything else from happening, Rascal grabbed Giggles hand and spun her around a few times, and pointed at her with a goofy smile on his face when he sang 'you'.

Tanner: I know you'd be there for me, too

Tanner came up from behind them and put both of his arms around their shoulders, and smiled affectionately at them as he sang his part.

Giggles: So, come on

All: Welcome to our family time

Welcome to our brotherly time

SeaCat: We're so happy

All: This is our festival

You know, and best of all

Rascal: Best of all

All: We're here to share it all

Rascal: Remembering love once departed

I smiled fondly when I saw a surfer couple together, holding hands as they gazed lovingly into each other's eyes.

All: Someone near to your heart

Rascal: Finding love, planning a future

Rascal took a flower off of a plant nearby and placed it behind my ear. I blushed and smiled at him as I adjusted it so it would stay in there.

SeaCat: Telling stories and laughing with friends

Tanner and Giggles: Precious moments you'll never forget

Watching all the happy surfers, dancing and having a good time, just being with each other made me want to get up and join them. So I stood in the middle of the crowd, and began to sing, my voice small and unsure at first, but gradually growing and becoming more confident, much like the owner itself.

Me: This has to be

The most beautiful

The most peaceful place

I've ever been to

It's nothing like

I've ever seen before

When I think how far I've come

I can't believe it

And yet I see it

And then I see family

I see the way I used to be

I look around as I sing, noticing the amazed expressions on everyones faces, as I sung from my heart, telling them all what I thought of this wonderful place I'm at, and how happy I am to be here.

Rascal: Come on

All: Welcome to our family

SeaCat: Welcome into our family

All: Welcome to our brotherly time

Giggles: We're so happy

All: We're happy giving and taking

To the friends we're making

There's nothing we won't do

Welcome to our family time

Tanner: Welcome into the family

All: Welcome to our happy to be time

Tanner: We're so happy

All: This is our festival

You know, and best of all

We're here to share it

We're here to share it all

During the last note, another beach ball flew in my direction, and this time I actually caught it. People cheered in the restaurant, and many people came to welcome me into the gang, with Rascal nearby.

But our happiness was cut short when we all heard the sound of motorcycles outside. We all rushed to the far side of the restaurant as the bikers came in and took their seats. Luckily there were no confrontations today, except for the glares everyone kept shooting at each other.

"Be careful of the bikers, their nothing but bad news." SeaCat whispered into my ear and lead me over to a booth, where the rest of our friends already were.

"I'll go get us something to eat," I offered.

I got up and placed everyones orders, and while I waited, I walked around Big Momma's, amazed at how beautiful it is in real life. I was so lost in my thoughts that I didn't notice anything around me until I bumped into someone. I was about to apologize, when my breathe caught in my throat at the sight in front of me.

There he was. My crush, with his slicked back blond hair, sparkling blue eyes, and tall muscular body hidden in a jacket, stood Lugnut. I'm pretty sure I swooned a little, he's even more handsome in person.

"Watch it soifer," he growled in his thick biker accent. I snapped out of my thoughts and remembered that the bikers and surfers are enemy's.

"You watch it, rodent," I growled back. He said nothing more, he just walked away glaring at me the whole time, me returning it, while on the inside I was squealing like a fangirl.

At that moment I remembered what Kiki said, about me changing the movie so I was involved more, and for a second I wondered if maybe I was involved more, maybe Lugnut would fall in love with me. Of course I would never make him fall in love with me, I don't even think I could. But I hope that, by some miracle, we could possibly be together. I guess only time will tell.

With that in mind, I get my friend's orders and walk back to the booth, a big smile on my face as I welcomed in my new life.

Good by Nikki, hello Tiki.


With Kiki

Kiki and Andrew stayed there staring out into the ocean.

"She's gone," she murmured. Her new father nodded his agreement and they went home.

When they got home, Kiki decided to take a nap and relax for a bit before deciding to go to Devon's house. On their date the night before, Devon had asked Kiki to join his band, and of course she said yes, and they agreed to meet the next day.

When she got to his house, her and Devon sat down and began working on songs. They worked for about three hours, and then they decided to test one out.

Kiki stared at the mic, and felt a wave of sorrow and happiness hit her. She was so happy that she was able to do something that she loved, but felt sad that she didn't have Nikki to share it with.

When she looked at Devon though, all those thoughts washed away like the ocean. Kiki didn't know if Devon and her would ever have a serious future together, but she couldn't imagine being with anybody else. The brunette took a deep breathe and began to sing.


Unbeknownst to Kiki, in the movie world, Tiki had begun to sing the exact same song, and the two girls sung together, both in different worlds, but in perfect unity.

Baby, look at me and tell me what do you see?

You ain't seen the best of me yet

Give me time, I'll make you forget the rest

I've got more in me, and you can set it free

I can catch the moon in my hand

Don't you know who I am?

Remember my name

(Fame)I'm gonna live forever

I'm gonna learn how to fly (high)

I feel it coming together

People will see me and cry

(Fame) I'm gonna make it to heaven

Light up the sky like a flame

(Fame) I'm gonna live forever

Baby, remember my name

(Remember, remember, remember, remember)

(Remember, remember, remember, remember

Baby hold me tight, 'cause you can make it right

You can shoot me straight to the top

Give me love and take all I got to give

Baby I'll be tough, too much is not enough, no

I can ride your heart 'til it breaks

Ooh, I got what it takes

Remember my name

(Fame) I'm gonna live forever

I'm gonna learn how to fly (high)

I feel it coming together

People will see me and cry

(Fame) I'm gonna make it to heaven

Light up the sky like a flame

(Fame) I'm gonna live forever

Baby, remember my...

(Remember, remember, remember, remember)

(Remember, remember, remember, remember)

(Fame) I'm gonna make it to heaven

Light up the sky like a flame

(Fame) I'm gonna live forever

Baby, remember my...

(Remember, remember, remember, remember)

(Remember, remember, remember, remember)

(Remember my name)

(Fame) I'm gonna live forever

I'm gonna learn how to fly (high)

I feel it coming together

People will see me and cry

(Fame) I'm gonna make it to heaven

Light up the sky...

Both of the girls finished and threw there heads up to the sky, drinking in the sounds of the cheering people, and ready to live their brand new lives.


Tiki's POV

Heh, sorry, I was having so much fun I almost forgot. Did you think that was the end?


So what did you think about the ending? Like it, hate it? Let me know, and what do you think about Tiki and Lugnut, think they'd make a cute couple?

The songs are Welcome from the movie Brother Bear, and Fame, from the movie Fame.

First of all, I want to give thanks to God for all he's done for me and for always being there, because if it weren't for him, i don't know where I'd be.
