Chapter 8: Epilogue

(Hannah Montana's "He Could Be the One" plays in background)

Daniella and Wendy were both up already. It was about 5:30 in the morning. They were making breakfast for the Loonatics. Sophie had gone to Anasala by herself last night to inform their parents of the good news. The girls couldn't help but think of their guys.

Smooth talking, so rocking, he's got everything that a girl's wanting.

He's such a cutie, he's getting to me, and I can't keep myself from doing something stupid.

Think I'm really falling for his smile, get butterflies when he says my name.

(Please keep in mind that Wendy and Daniella are not the ones singing) Lexi walked in, rubbing her eyes and saw Daniella and Wendy hard at work.

"You willing to help?" asked Wendy. Lexi nodded and walked over.

He's got something special, he's got something special,

And when he's looking at me I wanna get all sentimental,

He's got something special, he's got something special,

I can hardly breathe, something's been telling me, telling me, maybe

He could be the one.

He could be the one,

He could be the one.

Yeah, he could be the one,

He could be the one,

He could be the one.

Tech and Rev woke up first. They came into the hall and stopped when they saw Lexi, Wendy, and Daniella making breakfast for them.

"Wow-Tech," Rev whispered, "If-they'll-go-through-all-this-trouble-for-us-now-imagine-what-they'll-do-when-we're-really-married."

Tech shushed him.

He's lightning, sparks are flying,

And everywhere I go he's always on my mind and,

I'm going crazy about him lately

And I can't help myself from how my heart is racing,

Think I'm really digging on his vibe,

He really blows me away

He's got something special, he's got something special,

And when he's looking at me, I wanna get all sentimental,

Yeah, he's got something special, he's got something special,

I can hardly breathe something's been telling me, telling me, maybe

He could be the one.

He could be the one,

He could be the one.

Yeah, he could be the one,

He could be the one,

He could be the one.

Ace and Duck then walked in and noticed the girls, too.

"What are they-" Duck started.

Tech, Rev, and Ace all shushed him (quietly). The girls had wanted it to be a surprise.

And he's got a way

Of making me feel

Like everything I do is

Perfectly fine

The stars are aligned when I'm with him

(And I'm so into it)

He's got something special, he's got something special,

And when he's looking at me, I wanna get all sentimental,

Yeah, he's got something special, he's got something special,

I can hardly breathe, something been telling me, telling me, maybe

He could be the one.

He could be the one,

He could be the one.

Yeah, he could be the one,

He could be the one,

He could be the one.

(He could be the one)

Wendy caught a pancake perfectly in a plate after Daniella flipped it (of course, she used her levitation power) and then noticed the guys sitting in the hall.

"So, do you gals do this kind of thing every morning, or is it just for the fiancée?" asked Ace.

"Pretty much the last one," said Lexi, "Come on, guys."

It was about 7 by then. After they'd all eaten, Sophie came back. She wasn't supposed to be back yet. But Tech could tell something was wrong. The plan was that she transport to the house, tell her parents what had happened, and then spend the night there for as long as she wanted and then come in around lunchtime. It wasn't even 8 o'clock yet and she was already there.

"Sophie?" asked Tech, "What happened? What are you-" He didn't even finish that sentence as she sat down and he noticed that she was crying, her clothes were torn, and her hands were covered in blood. "Sophie, what happened?"

"Mom and Dad are dead," Sophie whispered.

"What?" Wendy said, turning to her sister as soon as she heard the words. Daniella looked up, too. This wasn't supposed to happen. And how had it happened?

Before anyone could ask Sophie that question, she began to sob uncontrollably and bury her head in her hands.

Tech sat down next to his girlfriend and laid his arm around her. She buried her face in chest and he hugged her gently in return.

Everybody needs inspiration,

Everybody needs a song,

A beautiful melody,

When the nights are long,

'Cause there is no guarantee,

That this life is easy.

Yeah, when my world is falling apart

And there's no lights to break out the dark,

That's when I

I

I look at you

When the waves are flooding the shore

And I can't find my way home anymore,

That's when I

I

I look at you

When I look at you
