The last chapter is here! –sniffles- I will miss this story, but I had fun writing it and reading your feedback! You guys are awesome! Don't worry though! Lilly Winters is striking again! I am already writing another PPG story! It is called "And they all lived happily ever after?" and it is mainly about Bubbles and, well actually, Ace! It sounds odd now, but check out the summary. I think it sounds really sweet :D. I will probably post it tonight but if not tonight, then tomorrow.
Well, enjoy and thank you for reading He loves me, He loves me not!
Finally, it was all over. He was now able to relax, just stop to enjoy life. And as he cradled Buttercup in his arms, that was exactly what he was doing. They sat on the park bench, ripping pieces of bread apart before tossing it into the slow, steady stream that carried the bobbing ducks. They laughed, the ducks nibbling gingerly at the food. Butch sighed peacefully. "You know, I never knew how great it could feel to simply be alive."
"Sometimes it's nice just to slow down and enjoy life, huh?" she said, smiling up at him.
He nodded and caressed her hair, but paused as he breathed thoughtfully. "It's odd to think that we came close to dying. I mean I always knew it was a dangerous game, fighting crime and whatnot, but it never really seemed possible until it came close to happening."
"It scares you?" she asked with complete curiosity.
"It doesn't scare me to think of dying. That isn't the part that scared me at all. But when I remembered all those things that Him and Princess had made me say to you, and I knew that you didn't know I was sorry," he shook his head, rapping his arms around her tighter, "that is what scared me the most."
"There was a part of me that knew," she said. "It hurt, but I think somewhere deep down, I knew that it wasn't really you talking."
"So what do we do now?" he wondered. "Townsville is safe, but for how long?"
She shrugged. "I don't know. But it's going to be different this time. Now, you and I are in control of our lives. And no one is going to mess that up." She kissed him on the cheek.
Butch smiled and nodded over at her sisters. "How're they holding up after that whole mess?"
Buttercup laughed. "Like nothing even happened."
Boomer held Bubbles' waist as she bent over to pet a row of ducklings drifting in the stream. She squeaked and fell, dragging both her and Boomer into the water. Boomer blinked before he too was giggling. Blossom was playing a dangerous game, snatching Brick's hat right off of his head and trying her best to keep it away from him. She didn't last long, though, and was quickly tackled to the ground. He smirked, kissed her lightly, and slipped the hat from her grip.
Buttercup had her eyes closed as she leaned against Butch. That is, until a shadow was casted over the pair. She opened her eyes to find Ace standing over them, hands in pockets and sunglasses perched on the end of his nose.
"I guess everything turned out all right after all, huh?" he smiled.
"Didn't you tell Bubbles that everything would be fine?" she raised an eyebrow playfully.
"For a second there, I needed a little convincing myself," he admitted sheepishly, laughing. "Never before have I been so glad I was right." He turned and Buttercup laughed as she saw Grubber tackle Ace to the ground, licking him. The Gangreen Gang had survived after all. It was the most heartwarming sight, the moment that Ace realized his family had survived. When questioned if she was crying, she replied with a scoff I have something in my eye.
"You're supposed to keep your dogs on a leash!" she called to Ace, referring to the giddy Grubber.
Ace tried to pull away as he nodded, "I wish I would have!"
She laughed. Leaning her head back onto Butch's shoulder, she looked from Ace to the Gangreen gang, from Blossom and Brick to Boomer and Bubbles, and finally, peered up at Butch.
And she smiled.
Sure life had its ups and downs, it's hills and valleys, but for this minute, the very moment she was living right now, she would relive it all over and over again.
That much she knew for sure.
And I would relive typing this story for you guys ^-^ You are awesome, cool, and (yes I am actually saying the word) EPIC! Thank you for reading and I hope you liked it as much as I liked writing it for you! Be sure to check out the story I mentioned in the Author's Note above!
