Hey everyone, I just wanted to say thank you for sticking with this story! I've honestly had so much fun writing it and seeing the views skyrocket from 1 to 300! Can we keep it going? This is our last chapter of the book, but don't worry, its twice as long as a normal one, so just think of it as a 2 part episode of Phineas and Ferb! There will be an epilogue after this, but it's a look into the future. This book has been focused more on Ferb and Emma at the end, but I promise the next book will have much, much more Phinabella! I'm going to focus it mainly on those two because I think there has been a LOT of Ferbma in this, and Phinabella needs a chance to shine! Also, i LOVE seeing all of your comments and I'd really appreciate some more! They make me happy to see people have something to say about it so you can go ahead and just spam me with comments of random things you think while reading! Anyways, lets get into chapter 20! Disclaimer i don't own p&f
Crimson rushed to get her job done, she didn't understand what Perry wanted, exactly, but she heard the fear in his voice and knew it was serious. Agent P didn't get scared, after all, his trait was being fearless. She ran out of the house where her family had left her while they went on vacation, and down to HQ.
"What are you doing here, Agent S?" Major Monogram asked.
She barked, letting him know she was helping Perry with some issues with his host family. He nodded and allowed her to take Agent P's hovercar. She flew to Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated and crashed on the balcony.
"Oh, it's Perry the Platypus's little dog friend! Where is he anyways?" he asked.
She barked and grabbed his hand, taking him on the hovercar with her. They flew all the way to California and found Perry in the alley.
"Perry the Platypus?! I asked where he was, not to take me to him!" Doofenshmirtz yelled.
Perry shushed him and went on his watch to find a message from Major Monogram, who had translated what was going on so he could understand.
"Agent P's host family is experiencing a big problem with a kidnapper, who appears to be involved with another member of L.O.V.E. M.U.F.F.I.N, named Rodney. The agents need your help to defeat the kidnappers and keep his host family safe."
"Rodney?! Oh, boy, he's not even doing evil anymore, he's just BAD! I guess I can help you guys just this once." Doofenshmirtz sighed as Perry chattered to him and Crimson translated on her own watch.
Back at the house, the families were enjoying dinner, when Isabella got a notification on her phone. It was an unknown number, telling her to meet them outside on the balcony in 2 minutes. She was curious to see who it was, so she told Phineas and asked if he would come with her to be safe. He agreed and the two walked out on the balcony.
A man in a white labcoat approached them, and he felt familiar for some reason they didn't know. Maybe he lived in Danville too, they thought.
"I have some... friends... that have told me that one of your friends, Emily, Ember, Em..." he tried to remember.
"Emma?" Isabella asked.
"Oh, yeah that's it! Emma's going to be kidnapped soon if she isn't careful, and I need your help to make sure that doesn't happen. It's for a friend." he said.
The two teenagers looked at each other with a look of fear and confusion and agreed as long as it meant Emma would be safe. They weren't surprised what with the fight at the beach earlier.
"What do you need us to do?" Phineas asked.
"We need to make an inator." the man replied.
"An... inator?" Phineas raised his eyebrow.
"An invention! To keep this kidnapper's invention from working!" he tried to explain.
"The kidnapper has an invention, too?" Isabella asked.
"Yes, yes, some kind of invention, I don't know what it was for though. Oh, that's right, it was some sort of mind-switchy-izer, that's what the other evil scientist calls his inventions..." Doof rambled on, but the two teens talked amongst themselves.
"Do you have any idea what he's talking about?" Phineas asked.
"If you don't know, why would I know?" she said.
"Well, the first thing we need to do is warn Emma." he said, and then the man looked at them.
"No, you can't tell her anything. We don't want her to get suspicious and start looking around for him. It would only make things worse."
"You're right, so we don't tell her. Or Ferb, for that matter." Phineas said, and the other two agreed. "But first, who are you?"
"Oh, my name is Heinz Doofenshmirtz, I'm an evil scientist from Danville. I try to take over the tri-state area!"
"If you're evil... why are you helping us?" Isabella questioned.
"I might be evil, but I am not bad!" he said.
"Oookaayyy..." the teens said, confused. The man led them to the garage, where they started working on what Doofenshmirtz had called a "un-inator-inator" because apparently it made another "inator" not work.
Back in the house, Emma and Ferb were laying down on the couch together. They were exhausted, today had been a very eventful day.
"Would you like to go sit outside with me?" he asked, after they couldn't fall asleep since everyone was being very noisy.
"I'd love to." she said, following him outside.
They sat under a big oak tree in the backyard, similar to the one in his backyard.
"Deja vu, huh?" she laughed.
"Yes, yes it is. What a coincidence!" he replied, and she leaned against him and they fell asleep under the stars together.
That was a bad idea. They were outside, sleeping, unaware of the danger around them. A rustling came from the bushes by the side of the yard, and a teenage boy came into view. It was Ethan, slowly creeping over to where she was so that she could carefully grab her and take her with him. He picked her up softly, and ran as fast as he could, replacing her head with an apple.
She tried to scream, but her voice was muffled by the hand of someone. She didn't have to see the face to know who it was. She kicked, punched, and tried to pull his hair, but he had a firm grip on her. He dragged her to an abandoned building, where he tied her up and sat down.
"Looks like your little boyfriend couldn't save you this time. What a shame." he chuckled and ran his hand across her cheek. She tried to move, but she was firmly bound to the chair.
"Even if you escape, you won't be yourself. See this little beauty?" he said, and pulled out a gun looking contraption. "When I pull this trigger, what's going to happen is my mind will be in your body, and yours will be in mine. From then, you'll still be here in my body, and I can continue my plan to ruin your pathetic little life."
She gasped, as he pointed the machine in her face. A red beam came out and zapped her, and she felt different. She heard herself laughing, and looked up and saw him in her own body, with her voice. She was angry. She kicked, screamed, and tried to escape but nothing worked. He left her behind, and she was scared. She really hoped nobody would fall for it.
Ethan walked back to the house, and stopped at the garage when he heard machinery running. He saw the triangle-headed freak and his girlfriend with a guy with a labcoat.
"So... what's this for?" he asked.
"Oh... um, nothing! It's just something we can use tomorrow when we're hanging out!" Phineas said, and turned white with fear.
"Okay..." he said, and walked to the backyard to find Ferb still asleep. This was his chance.
"Hey, babe, wake up!" he said, and sat down on his lap.
Ferb woke up, confused, because she didn't usually call him babe. Whatever, must be a new thing. "Hi, darling, how'd you sleep?" he smiled.
"I slept amazing. Anyways, I had an idea..." Ethan said in a flirty voice.
"Oh? What was that?" he asked.
"Follow me, sugarbear."
Ferb was utterly confused, Emma didn't act like this. She didn't call him sugarbear, or babe, or sit on his lap.
(referring to Ethan as she) "Sit down, baby, let me show you something..." she said.
Ferb was uncomfortable. This didn't seem like her, but he sat down anyways. Something was wrong, but he didn't know what it was. "Are you feeling okay, honey?" he asked.
"I'm just great. Just enjoy this." she said, and kissed him hard. She started to unbutton his shirt, and Ferb pulled away.
"What are you doing?!" he asked, surprised, and buttoned it up again.
"Making you feel good..." she said, and pressed her lips on his again.
Something was definitely off. He pushed her away. "This isn't you. What has gotten into you?" Ferb asked firmly.
"Nothing! I just feel like we should take it to the... next level, if you know what I mean." she smirked.
Ferb remembered what she had said earlier about wanting to keep her virginity until marriage. This most definitely wasn't her, and he was going to do something about it. "Did Ethan say something to you? Emma, I know this isn't you and there's gotta be some reasoning behind this. Just earlier, you talked about how you weren't ready to do stuff like whatever this is before marriage. I feel the same way, so please, get your mind straight. I love you, but you have to figure this out." Ferb said, angry.
"What?! You're supposed to be grateful! I'm trying to give you something new, and you don't want it? I'm sorry, I think we need to break up."
Ferb was confused. There was one way to find out if this was her or not. "Em, what was your nickname for me again?" he said, raising an eyebrow.
Ethan mumbled under his breath, not even knowing what his name was. "It's my love, of course! I always call you that!" her voice said, and her cheeks went pale.
"You're not Emma. Who are you and what did you do with my girlfriend?" Ferb asked, standing up.
"Of course I'm Emma! I'm standing right her, sugar pumpkin!" she said, her voice cracking with nervousness.
"No, you're not. Where is she?" he clenched his teeth. He had experienced a lot of awful things having to do with weird contraptions, but this was something new. He didn't doubt something had happened, though. He decided to go talk to Phineas. He grabbed her hand and dragged her upstairs and to the garage with a scowl on his face.
"Who is this?" Ferb yelled.
"That's Emma, Ferb..." Phineas said, thinking his brother had lost his mind.
"No! It's not! Is this some kind of mad trick you're playing on me?" he said, his voice breaking. What in the world was happening here and where was the girl he fell in love with?
Ferb. His name was Ferb. "Ferb, it's just me! There's nothing going on, love." Emma said.
"It's not you. You're a fake." he hissed.
"Ferb, stop it! You're being a jerk!" Isabella screamed and pushed him out of the way. "Are you okay, Em?" she asked.
"I'm fine. Ferb I'm done, we're over." Emma said, then walked out of the garage with a smirk. Isabella ran after her.
Ferb broke into tears. He didn't usually cry, but he was so confused and hurt, he didn't know what was going on.
"Bro, what just happened?" Phineas asked, rushing to his brother's side.
"I-I don't know. It's not her. It's not her. That is not her." he cried, and put his head in his hands. "Where is she? Come back..."
Phineas looked at Doofenshmirtz confused. "I told you there was a mind-switchy-izer! Of course it's not her, it's the kidnapper in her body!" he said.
Ferb looked up, his eyes bloodshot and wide. "What did you say?"
"I said, that's the kidnapper! What do you think he used Rodney for?" he said.
Phineas realized what had happened and his eyes widened. "Ferb, I know what we're going to do tonight." he said with a frown and grabbed Ferb's arm. "You guys aren't over, that's not Emma." he said.
"I told you! Go get Isabella before it's too late!" Ferb exclaimed.
Phineas freaked out, realizing that Izzy was out there with the kidnapper. He ran out and saw them walking down the street towards a dark alley. He sprinted to catch up with them.
"Izzy, I need you to come with me. Now." he said, grabbing her hand and pulling her away.
"Phineas, I'm helping our friend!" she said, angrily.
"That's not our friend. Mind switcher, Izzy, think!" he shouted, and she realized. It was too late. Ethan grabbed Izzy's other hand and dragged her down the street and down the dark alley.
Phineas ran as fast as his legs could carry him, until he lost the two at a dead end. "Fudge..." he mumbled under his breath, and ran back to the garage.
"He got them both..." Phineas said, his voice breaking.
"Don't worry, kid, we will get them both back." Dr. Doofenshmirtz came and hugged the two crying teenage boys. He knew how it hurt seeing his daughter sad, so he knew he had to do his best to help them to fix this.
The three set out to find the girls and they were dead set on finding them, even if it meant having to get hurt for them. That's what love was for.
They split up, Phineas and Ferb searching the main streets, and Doofenshmirtz searching the smaller and darker alleys. He wasn't scared because he had the two secret agents to come with him in case.
"Are you sure you should go alone?" Phineas asked.
"I can handle it. You boys stay safe, and use this to notify me if you see anything." he said, handing Phineas a box-like device with a button in the middle and... a self destruct button?
"What's that for?" he asked.
"Oh, I put them on everything, just don't press it!" he laughed and went to search. The boys walked down main street, it was all dark, being past 1am. The boys walked past the shops, making sure there was nothing there. They searched for hours, with nothing but a couple of stray cats and a few shady looking people.
Doofenshmirtz met up with the other agents. "We need to start looking for those girls, the kidnapper got them both and hid them somewhere." he said, and Perry looked distressed.
"You okay, Agent P?" Crimson asked him.
"Yeah. I'm fine. Just worried." he replied, looking straightforward.
"Okay... let me know if you need anything." she said.
It was kind of a funny sight, an evil scientist, a platypus, and a dog walking down alleys.
"Stop." Crimson said, and starting to smell the ground. "They went this way, follow me!" she barked, and Perry motioned his nemesis to follow her. They reached an old building that looked like it was falling apart.
Perry looked in the window, and sure enough, Isabella and Emma (in Ethan's body) were tied up inside. Doofenshmirtz ran inside and covered the girls' eyes so they wouldn't see Perry in his secret agent form. They squirmed, but he whispered, "Shh, don't worry, we're here to save you, just don't move."
Perry busted through the window to find an unsuspecting Ethan. He didn't want to hurt Emma's body too much, so he went for the 'pinch them in a spot on the neck and they will faint' maneuver. He fell to the ground, and picked up the device on the table behind him. He pointed the device at Emma and they switched yet again, with her mind returning to her own body. Perry jumped back through the window, ensuring that the girls didn't see him. Emma was still unconscious, but woke up seconds later. Isabella opened her eyes to see Ethan tied up in the chair where Emma was before. Doofenshmirtz untied her and she got up.
"Who saved us?" she asked.
"A friend, don't ask too many questions, I can't answer them."
The girls looked at each other, confused, but were too excited to be free again.
Doofenshmirtz contacted the boys to let them know that the girls were okay. They got the message and raced to the abandoned building. They opened the door to find the girls there and Ethan tied up in the car.
"It's you, right?" Ferb said, excitedly.
"Yeah... why?" she asked.
"Nevermind, I'm just glad it's you and not that douche bag." he said, and picked her up and kissed her.
When they pulled away, Emma wanted to know what happened. "Wait, what did he do..." she asked with a serious face.
"I'll tell you when we get home, darling." She nodded.
"I was so scared you were gone for good." Phineas said, hugging Izzy tight.
"Phineas! Can't... breathe..." she said, and Phineas loosened his grip.
"Oops, sorry..." he blushed.
"I'm just glad you guys found us before it was too late." Izzy said, holding him close.
The police showed up outside the door, and after the teenagers had told them what happened, without going into detail about the mind switcher, telling them that he had kidnapped two girls, they arrested Ethan and told the kids to go home.
(note here, i know that in a normal case they would have to have a trial, but for shortening reasons, I'm not going to go in that. this is a cartoon world haha)
The 4 teenagers walked home, tired.
When they got inside, their parents had been sleeping, so they crept down the stairs and into the basement.
Emma and Ferb sat down on his bed so that they could talk without the distraction of Buford, who was sleeping after watching a movie.
"I'm sorry, Ferb, I had no idea he would do that to me. Today has just been a mess." she sighed and looked down. He took her hands.
"Don't be sorry, he's gone now! He's going to jail, and you're safe. I'm never letting you out of my sight, my love." he said, looking into her sparkling eyes, that were glowing from the moonlight outside.
"Thank you, Ferb. But, what did he do?" she asked.
Ferb told her what had happened and Emma felt her face get red with anger. "I can't believe that dumb boy would do that! Actually, it's Ethan, I should have expected that. I'm sorry he did that to you, Ferb."
She was cute when she was angry. "It's not your fault, I knew it wasn't you. Don't blame yourself, it is not your fault at all. He is a crazy, psychotic teenage boy with issues and he deserves every second of whatever penalty he gets, and then some." he said with a smile. He brushed her hair out of her face and kissed her. "Plus you're a much better kisser."
She pulled away. "HE KISSED YOU?" she yelled, then realized everyone was sleeping. Her eyes went wide. "He kissed you?" she whisper yelled. "Oh, I hope that freak gets a life sentence." she hissed.
"You're really adorable when you're mad, you know that?" he laughed, and kissed her again. "Also, I promise it wasn't long at all, I pulled away whenever he tried to do it again. Goodness gracious, that sounds very wrong." he said, embarrased.
She gave him a kiss on the cheek and walked to her own room.
Ferb tried to fall asleep but Phineas was snoring. Really loudly. He couldn't fall asleep, so he got out of bed.
He tapped Isabella on the shoulder and asked if she wanted to switch beds with him for the night. She nodded with a giggle and ran into the room where Phineas was sleeping. She was about to get into the other bed, but then Phineas woke up.
"What are you doing in here?" he asked groggily.
"Ferb thought you were snoring too loudly so we switched rooms."
"Well, if you're gonna be in here, we might as well cuddle." he said, scooting over in the bigger bed. He tapped the mattress beside him as she climbed in next to him. He spooned her and they fell asleep, content and warm.
In the other room, Emma was in the bathroom taking a shower. She got out and walked into the room with a towel on, and gasped when she saw Ferb.
"Why are you in here?" she asked.
"I thought we could spend a night together." he smirked and she rolled her eyes.
"Let me put on my pajamas and I'll be right there." she said, grabbing her sleep shirt and shorts. She got ready and came back out.
He laid in bed, reading his book with his reading glasses on when she came out.
"You look like a dad, you know that right?" she giggled.
"Mhm..." he smiled and put the book down. "Come here!"
She hopped in bed beside him and cuddled up in a ball next to him as he read his book aloud so she could hear too. She had no idea what was going on in the book, but it was great to just be here with him.
He couldn't help but smile thinking this could be in store for them in the future as he continued to read to her. He stroked her hair and rubbed her back, and she looked up at him.
"How are you hot even with a black eye?" she giggled.
"Oh, you little!" he chuckled and put his book and glasses down on the nightstand.
"NO! Don't tickle me again!" she laughed as he turned to face her.
"I'm not going to." he smirked, then kissed her softly.
When they stopped kissing, he looked at her beautiful eyes and stared into them.
"What are you doing?" she asked.
"Looking at you." he smiled. He laid back down and held her in his arms. He watched as she drifted to sleep and kissed her neck.
"I'm going to marry her someday..." he whispered to himself and fell asleep.
Edited part: I forgot to add the proposal of Jeremy, so here you go ;)
It was the last day of their vacation and Jeremy had been waiting to find the perfect way to propose to Candace. He had to do it today, and it felt like everything had been perfect in the moment so he decided to just do it.
Ferb had helped him figure out what he could do, and he took his advice. He took her to a small tide pool away from the beach, and they sat down together. The sun was beginning to set, so they sat together and watched the bright, yellow orange ball sink behind the ocean.
"Candace, I have to ask you something..." Jeremy said.
"What's up?" she asked.
"Well, there's something I've been planning on asking you for a while, so I'm just gonna say it."
"Will you- OWWW!" he started, but a crab came out of nowhere and pinched him. "What the heck?" he nervously laughed, and then tried to ask her again.
"Candace, will-" he tried again, but an obnoxious group of kids ran by and interrupted them.
Ferb was watching from a distance and he couldn't help but laugh at his failure.
"Willyoumarryme?" he said fast and slurred as the kids passed, wanting to get it over with, but Candace didn't understand what he said.
"I'm sorry, what?" she giggled.
"Candace, will you marry me?" he asked, kneeling and pulling out a ring.
"Jeremy! Of course, I'll marry you!" she kissed him, and after they pulled apart, he started to put it on her finger, but as he was about to place it on her finger, a seagull passed overhead. "Uh oh." he said, then felt a splatter on his head. Candace burst out laughing.
Ferb fell over laughing, causing the couple to look over and blush like crazy.
I'm so sorry I didn't finish the vacation, but I felt like this was a good place to end it. Right after I post this, I'm gonna finish the epilogue and then I'm gonna get started on my Phinabella book, so don't worry about waiting too long!
