Chapter 6: Happy Endings

Chance groaned and rubbed his face. He felt his fur and…

"No mask…"

He bolted upright but quickly felt dizzy and sank down.

"Easy, Chance."

He looked up and saw Callie smiling at him. They were back at the salvage yard, and he was lying with a bandage wrapped around his head on their couch.

"What happened?" he asked.

"You beat Dark Kat. Jake and I got you out of there while Felina stayed behind to answer questions. She just got back and is with Razor."

Chance relaxed and smiled. "I guess that's over with," he said.

She smiled and sat next to him. "Still up for that movie?" she asked.

He grinned and pulled her closer. "Need you ask?"

She lay down next to him and rested her head on his chest. "I love you, Chance."

"Callie, I love you too."

Jake and Felina quietly tip toed away.

"Aww, how sweet!" said Felina with a giggle.

"Hmm yeah, but I'll bet Callie will kick him out of their room the first night after they get married. There's no way she could stand his snoring, no matter how in love she is."

Felina shook his hand. "Twenty bucks says you're on!"

Jake was surprised when Felina leaned in and kissed him. "We can't have one hero getting all the attention, can we?' she said with a sly smile.

He grinned and went back in for another kiss.

Chance held Callie's hand as he led her out to dance. They had gone to another one of Mrs. Dellulo's balls, and Callie was having such a blast. As for Chance, the gleam in his eyes told Callie that he was having as much fun as her.

"Chance, if it wasn't for you, I don't know how I could handle these things," said Callie with a giggle.

They danced slowly, and Callie rested her head on his chest, listening to the steady beat of his heart. She closed her eyes as Chance lowered his head and rubbed his cheek against her.

"I love you, beautiful," he said, the huskiness and slight gruffness of his voice making her tingle.

"I love you too, big guy."

He came to a stop and lifted her chin gently, placing his lips on hers. When they parted, he got down on one knee, pulled out a box, and stared straight into her eyes.

"Callie, without your love, I would be so lost. I want to be with you forever. So Callie, will you marry me?"

Her breath caught in her throat and her eyes began to tear. She wrapped her arms around his neck and kissed him through her tears.

"Of course I'll marry you, Chance."

He brushed the tears away from her eyes and smiled.

Everyone around them clapped. Jake and Felina, not to mention Mrs. Dellulo, were overjoyed. Even Commander Feral managed a slightly forced congratulation.

Chance held Callie's hand as people poured out congratulations. Callie rested her head on Chance's shoulder and smiled up at him. Just the sight of him made her warm up. He looked back at her. Her face made his heart flutter. They both knew it. They were in love, and nothing would separate them.
