Chapter 1: New Residents

Happy New Year everyone! I can tell 2017 is going to be an amazing year. This is my New Year's gift to you. :)

Dory, her parents, and her friends were swimming to Australia. The forgetful fish was so happy that she had found her parents. She felt accomplished.

Jenny looked at her daughter and held her fin, smiling at her.

Dory smiled back. She was very grateful to have parents with her. It made her feel good inside. She saw her father smiling at her. She smiled back.

Later, they made it to the reef. Destiny, Hank, Bailey, Jenny, and Charlie was all staring at it in awe.

"Wow…" Destiny said.

Marlin giggled. "I know. Beautiful isn't it?"

"It's amazing," Jenny stated.

"Yeah," Charlie agreed. "It looks like a fantastic place to live in."

Marlin smiled. "It is. Now we'll be showing you where you guys will be staying."

"Okay, great," Bailey said.

"Dory, you show your parents where they'll be staying at. Nemo, you show Destiny and Bailey their places."

"Okay. Come on, Mom and Dad!" Dory swam towards the place.

Charlie chuckled. "We're coming, Kelpcake!"

The couple followed their daughter.

Nemo swam to the place. Destiny and Bailey followed him.

Marlin turned to Hank. "I guess I'll be showing you where your new place is."

Hank chuckled. "Yeah. Let's go."

They swam off.

Dory led her parents to their new home. "This is your new home!"

Her parents smiled, seeing the place. Their home consisted of a coral cave that they can sleep in, coral, kelp, seaweed, and shells.

"This place is wonderful, honey," Jenny said.

"I agree. It reminds me of our old home at the MLI," Charlie stated.

"I'm glad you like it. Make yourselves comfortable." Dory smiled before swimming away.

Nemo introduced Destiny first to her place. "Destiny, you'll be staying in this cavern."

"Woah, it's huge!" Destiny exclaimed.

Nemo giggled. "I know. This cavern was made for you."

Destiny went inside the cavern. "It's perfect."

"Where will I be staying at?" Bailey asked.

"Bailey, you'll have to stay near the surface since you're a mammal. I learned about mammals in school. And mammals breathe air," Nemo explained.

"Okay, Nemo." Bailey went up near the surface. "Oh, this place is great."

Marlin and Hank swam over to a little cavern.

"Ooh, this place looks nice." Hank went in the cavern. "It's just my size."

"I'm happy that you like it." Marlin grinned.

Later, they all had a big dinner to celebrate the new residents in the reef.

Dory coughed loud to get everyone's attention.

They all turned to Dory, listening to what she had to say.

"I just wanted to say that I'm very happy that my friends and my parents came to live in the reef with me, Marlin, and Nemo. You guys are awesome, and you make me very happy. All of you guys are my family, and I love you all."

Hank began to cry happy tears. "That was so beautiful!"

Her parents hugged her.

"We love you so much, sweetheart," Jenny said.

"Aww! I love you too!"

"Three cheers for Dory!" Destiny exclaimed.

"Hip hip, hooray! Hip hip, hooray! Hip hip, hooray!" everyone cheered.

Dory blushed. "Aww, shucks. You guys are truly the best."

Nemo smiled and cuddled Dory.

Dory hugged him and nuzzled him.

"Alright, guys, let's finish this food!" Bailey said.

Everyone finished their special dinner. Dory's new friends and parents enjoyed the reef so far. They hoped to live a happy life there for many years possible.
