Loonakids: Special is One Word…

(Eerie music) I'm back! :) Well, this one is average size, but it will have a special addition at the end...you'll see. Well, enough out of me already. Read, review, enjoy!

Chapter 1

There are mini-Loonakids on the coffee table, dressed as mouseketeers and dancing.

All: A Loonakids story here once more
Jack: Do-da
Do-da
All: You won't believe what is in store
Jack: Oh, da-do-da-day
Kelly, Sarah, and Nadine: Secrets and romance
Jack: I'll even do a dance

Jack starts break-dancing.

"JACK!" the other eight kids snap.

Jack stops dancing. "Sorry."

All: We'll be here to help you through
Jack: Do-da
Do-da
Me, the dorks, and the girls, too
Jack, Nadine, Lucy, Kelly, and Sarah: Oh, da-do-da-day
Ryan: Don't call us dorks
Benny: He's mad 'cause we're in love (snuggles Sarah)
Jack: I was mad but now I'm glad
To give this friendly shove

Jack shoves Ryan and Benny.

"Hey! Don't shove him!" Sarah snaps.

The guys get into a claw fight.

"Are just gonna let him shove you like that?" Nadine asks.

Nadine walked into the living room and saw Lexi sitting on the couch, listening to music and reading a magazine. Nadine sighed and dropped a pile of clothes on the couch next to Lexi.

Lexi noticed this, took out her earphones, put down the magazine, and looked at her eldest daughter, who was dressed in a sort of music-themed outfit (music note headband and matching flip-flops, mini-skirt with a sheet music design and scattered lyrics embroidered around the hem, and a guitar tee).

"Can you help me here? When we applied to Acme Tech, I applied for the fashion role and I need your opinion on some of these outfits—"

"Wait a minute, Acme Tech has a fashion role?"

Ryan walked up. "They have stuff for everything. Jack is the only one who didn't apply…and he didn't apply anywhere. Nadine's headed for design, Benny's going for criminal psychology which could come in handy for the way we work, Lucy's going at botany, Robert's in for photography, Kelly's aiming to be a technician or a vet or something and a musician, I'm gonna be a writer and an inventor, Sarah's shooting for cook and music coach, and Mike's trying to go into zoology and…if I understood right, something about a comic book."

"So only the coyote kids are aiming for two different things?" asked Sophie.

"Pretty much."

"Wow."

Tech came up to them. "Speaking of the coyote kids, where's Kelly?"

Ryan looked at the clock. "Well, it's been a half hour since sunset and she's not in the tower. I'd say she's out at the graveyard making out with Austin."

"Oh, come on," said Nadine, "If Kelly's on patrol with Austin, she'll be professional about it."

Ironically, that's the exact opposite of what she was doing. They were leaning against a headstone, kissing like crazy.

Kelly finally let go. "Maybe we should get back to work."

"Totally." He kissed her one last time and then they finally stopped. "So, you were saying something?"

"Right, venting about college. Well, I'm glad that I'm finally about to graduate high school and all, get that out of the way. But I'm worried that I'm not gonna get accepted to college and—"

"You don't have to worry about that. You're smart, you're talented…you're beautiful."

"I don't see how that applies to what we were just talking about, but OK."

Austin smiled.

"You should do that more often."

"Compliment you?"

"Smile."

Austin smiled again.

"But I guess you're right. I mean, the only real blemishes on my academic record are all the tardy and absent days I got because of missions and that C I got on the Home Ec. assignment of keeping a bag of a sugar and treating it like a kid. I mean, sure, I wanna have kids some day, but…"

"Well, I wouldn't know anything about that."

"What do you mean?"

"I…I can't…"

Kelly understood what he meant. "Oh. Right. I get it. I mean, I knew there was a lot of things you guys couldn't do, like get a tan or eat Italian or make baby Vampires."

"Well, actually, the garlic thing is kind of a myth. But other than that, you're dead-on."

Kelly smiled. "OK, now, where were we?"

"I think I remember." She dropped into his arms as they leaned in to kiss again…and then Austin saw something coming out of the ground not that far away. "Vampire!" He dropped her.

Kelly got up. "I'm OK! Let's just slay the guy…" She then saw another Vampire rising. "…s." They went to fighting. Kelly smacked her Vamp in the face to knock him back…into Austin. "Sorry, honey!"

Austin got up. "That's OK!" He grabbed the Vamps and slammed them into a headstone. "Stake!" She threw her stake at him. He caught it perfectly and staked both Vamps.

"Now back on topic: I mean, obviously, we're gonna be stuck with each other for a while, but if we can't have kids and we're likely to die every time we turn a corner, are we still gonna be just making out in a graveyard when I'm 50 and you're…the same age you are now?"

They then noticed a gravestone rattling.

"Let's just get you to 50," Austin said.

"On it."

They ran off. They stopped once they were in the streets.

Kelly tried to regain her breath (as opposed to Austin, who wasn't breathing at all). "Alright, we're good. We're fine. Nothing wrong."

"Completely."

"Are we gonna kiss now?"

"I hope so."

They kissed.

Unfortunately, about then a semi-group of paparazzi started their weekly hound on Kelly.

"Hey! Shoo! Shoo, fly, don't bother me!" Kelly went to chase them off. "Don't make me…" She grabbed a guy's camera and snapped it in half.

The other paparazzi looked at each other and raced off with their pictures.

Kelly dropped the camera and looked at Austin. "Tell me the picture thing is a myth, too."

Austin just looked at her.
