When Charles got to the blue and white house on time, he quickly warns Lucille and the others. It was still dark and they were still sleeping in their beds, after they heard Charles's noises, they woke up. "Charles, what's wrong," asked Lucille? He shows them a note saying that Maynott, Madame Carlotta, Pate and the police are heading this way. "Oh no, this is not good," said Raoul. "We should get out of here before they find us," said Bella. "But we should get change first, like me, Raoul and Francoeur are still in our men's pajamas and you girls are still in your nightgowns," asked Emile. "It will probably be too late anyway," replied Maud. "Francoeur just changed into his clothing like his black cloak, red scarf and black hat," said Lucille. "Ok, let's go than and we don't have much time to change because Maynott might get here," said Raoul.
Maynott, Pate and Madame Carlotta saw the blue and white house, while riding on an airship, soon Madame Carlotta recognizes the house. "I know this house," said Carlotta. "What are you talking about," asked Maynott? "This house is where the girls use to lived," said Carlotta. "Really," replied Maynott? "This is where they lived before their parents died," said Carlotta. "I see," replied Maynott. While Pate was looking in his binoculars, he sees Francoeur and he was in total shock that the monster was alive. "Mmm Commissioner," said Pate. "Yes Pate," replied Maynott. "The monster was actually alive, not dead at all and most of all, Lucille is with him," said Pate. "What, I was a fool," replied Maynott. "What's going on, down there," asked Carlotta? "Apparently, this Francoeur is the monster and Lucille has been hiding him from me," replied Maynott.
Lucille and the others soon see Maynott, Pate and Madame Carlotta on the airship and they have to hurry quickly. "Let's put Francoeur in the back of Catherine, where he can be safe" said Lucille. "Ok," replied Raoul. After putting Francoeur in the back, they left the blue and white house, and escape quickly back to Paris because they needed to protect Lucille and Francoeur from Maynott. "Now, what do we do," asked Bella? "We'll have to take Francoeur someplace safe," replied Lucille. "We don't want Francoeur to get killed by Maynott," said Maud. "And we don't want Maynott to marry Lucille again," said Emile. "True," said Raoul. "Ok," replied Bella. They were soon being chased by the police down the streets. Charles got out of the vehicle because he needs to stop the police from chasing them by blocking them with a cart with a horse.
"What's Charles doing," asked Maud? "I think he is trying to slow the police down, so we can get Lucille and Francoeur someplace safe," replied Emile. After they got away from the police, a giant hook appeared from nowhere and attached to the front of "Catherine". "Hey," shouted Raoul! "So, you thought you can escape me, did you," replied Maynott. Raoul knew that he needs to get that hook, off of his vehicle. "Emile," said Raoul. "Yes," replied Emile. "Can you get rid of that thing," asked Raoul? "Out there," replied Emile? "Please," asked Raoul? "Ok," replied Emile. Emile soon exited the vehicle and made it to the front to get the hook off of "Catherine." Maynott was shooting at Emile to prevent him removing the hook from "Catherine".
Soon the morning sun rises as the chase was continued. Francoeur at the back, watch Emile from the window and he knew he had to do something. "Emile, please be careful," said Maud. Soon, Francoeur got out from the back and made his way to Emile to protect him from Maynott's shooting. "Hey Francoeur, you're in the way, I can't see," shouted Raoul. Maynott from above was shooting at Francoeur, but misses. "Pate, I need a bigger weapon," said Maynott. Maynott soon looked up ahead and he sees the Eiffel Tower and the Seine River. "Of course," said Maynott. "What," replied Carlotta? "To the Seine, Pate," said Maynott. "Yes sir," replied Pate. Soon Maynott came remove some loads to make the airship go higher and make "Catherine" be lift up. "Raoul, what's wrong," asked Bella? "The wheels are useless, I can't turn anymore," replied Raoul. The plan was working, the airship is going higher and "Catherine" is being lift up. "Oh no," said Emile.
After "Catherine" was lifted up and was at the Seine River, Maynott soon grab an axe from the airship, chopped the rope of the hook and "Catherine" was dropped in the river. "Maynott, are you crazy, you're going to drown my nieces and their friends," shouted Carlotta! "But Madame Carlotta, fleas cannot live in water, so that is the only way to kill him," replied Maynott. Meanwhile, the friends in "Catherine" are ok and not drowning. "Wait, where's Francoeur," asked Lucille? Francoeur was jumping from lamp posts to head to the Eiffel Tower, where it would be safe for him. "What, impossible," shouted Maynott! Francoeur made it to the Eiffel Tower and he waits for Lucille and the others to catch up. "Hurry, we have to help him," said Lucille. "We have to help ourselves, we're sinking," replied Emile. "What... ok, I got this," said Raoul. Raoul used the controls of "Catherine" to get to the Eiffel Tower to protect Francoeur from Maynott.
When they got to the Eiffel Tower on time, everyone got out of "Catherine". "We're safe and dry, thanks to the team work of Raoul and Catherine," said Raoul. As Raoul turned around, "Catherine" was sinking into the Seine River. "Catherine," shouted Raoul! Raoul was trying to pull "Catherine" back up, but it was too late, "Catherine" was at the bottom of the Seine River forever. "Don't worry Raoul, we'll build another Catherine together," said Bella. "Really," replied Raoul? "You have my word," said Bella. "I knew, you would understand me, like in my dreams," replied Raoul. As they were kissing again, Lucille soon called them. "Guys, we still need your help," shouted Lucille. "Right," replied Raoul and Bella.
Maynott, Madame Carlotta and Pate are getting close to the Eiffel Tower; Maynott knew they need to go down now. "Get us down, Pate," said Maynott. "Sorry, but I can't, it's impossible without those loads we had on this airship," replied Pate. "Must I do everything, myself," said Maynott. "Mmm Commissioner," replied Carlotta. Maynott soon shoot three bullets in the balloon to make the airship go down. "Don't need to tell you what to do, but you should change your mind, like that creature never really hurt anybody," said Pate. "That's not the point," replied Maynott. "Maynott, I'm with Pate on this," said Carlotta. "But I need to destroy the monster, so I can try to marry Lucille again and she will never see her beloved monster again, and I win," replied Maynott. Madame Carlotta was in total shock that Maynott became insane and that Lucille was right about him.
Lucille and the others got to Francoeur on time. "Francoeur... are you ok," asked Lucille? Francoeur turned to Lucille and she puts her hand on Francoeur's left cheek. "L... Lucille," said Francoeur. Everyone was surprised and in total shock that Francoeur is trying to speak now. "Wow, he's saying his first word," said Raoul. "I think, the other potion that gives him a singing voice must be developing more," replied Emile. "Lucille... I love you," said Francoeur. "Oh Francoeur, I'm very proud and happy for you, since you can speak now," replied Lucille. Lucille hugged Francoeur and cried with tears of joy. Francoeur hugged her in return that he glad that she is happy. "We'll still try to protect you ok," said Lucille. "Ok," replied Francoeur. Everyone soon turned and saw Maynott about to jump off the airship to them. "Hurry, we got to go," said Bella! "Right," replied Maud.
Maynott made the jump perfect and he points his gun at Francoeur. "Get your arms off of my future wife, you monster," said Maynott. "Go ahead, shoot," replied Lucille. "Oh, how very touching," said Maynott. Pate was in shock that Maynott has lost his mind, he and Madame Carlotta has to do something quickly. "The newspapers were right, there really is a monster in Paris and I am looking right at him," said Lucille! "What, if I can't have you as my wife, I can still have your monster," replied Maynott. "Please don't," shouted Raoul and Emile! "We beg you," shouted Bella and Maud! Francoeur soon grabbed Lucille and he climb to the top of the Eiffel Tower while holding Lucille because he knows that Lucille doesn't love Maynott. "You bring her back now," demanded Maynott.
Francoeur soon got injured from Maynott's shooting. "Stop it, right now," shouted Emile. Emile soon got Maynott's gun and threw it into the Seine River. "You'll pay for this, dwarf," said Maynott. "Well, I maybe a dwarf, but it was for your good," replied Emile. Emile soon came with another idea. "Raoul pass me, your controls," said Emile. "Ok," replied Raoul. After Raoul passes his controls to Emile, Emile slide pass Maynott's legs and hit him in the head, Maynott soon fell unconscious. "Emile, you were wonderful and brave, just like in my dreams," said Maud. "In your dreams," replied Emile? Maud and Emile started kissing for the very first time. "Guys, we have no time for this," said Raoul. "Yes, right now we need to rescue Lucille and Francoeur because I think Francoeur just got hurt," said Bella. "Ok," replied Emile and Maud.
After Francoeur got to the top of the Eiffel Tower, Lucille checks on his injuries. "Francoeur, are you ok," asked Lucille? "Feel weak, I think I'm dying," said Francoeur. "No, I'll use my tweezers to get the bullet out," replied Lucille. After Lucille removed the bullet from Francoeur, she holds him in her arms. "Lucille, I think it's better if I die, no one in Paris would accept a monster like me," said Francoeur. "No Francoeur, in my point of view, you're not a monster, you are the most amazing person I ever meet, and I don't want you to leave me," cried Lucille. "Why," asked Francoeur? "Because I love you," cried Lucille. "You love me," replied Francoeur. "Yes, I love you," cried Lucille. Lucille soon shares a kiss with Francoeur for the very first time in her life. Francoeur looked at Lucille, they both smiled and they continued to kiss.
The other got to the top on time and they were happy for Lucille and Francoeur. "This might be odd, but I would say romantic," said Raoul. "I agree," replied Emile. "After reading many fairy tales and true love, I believe that our sister and Francoeur are in those stories," said Bella. "I'm happy for Lucille," replied Maud. As they watched, Maynott regained his conscious and made his way, where the others are. After he got to the top he was jealous and in rage that Lucille has fallen in love with Francoeur, instead of him. When Lucille got down with the others, Maynott grabs Lucille from behind. "Sorry to interrupt this happy moment, but Lucille and I have a wedding to attend," said Maynott. "You let our sister go," shouted Bella! "Lucille, marry me or I will deal with your one true love," said Maynott. "Face it, she doesn't love you," replied Raoul.
As they move closer, Maynott grabs Lucille's left arm and hold her off the side of the Eiffel Tower. "Don't come any close or down Lucille goes," demanded Maynott. Francoeur sees Lucille terrified and he knew he has to save her. Francoeur soon got down and saved Lucille on time. "Leave her," said Maynott. Francoeur sees the switch of the light and he came with an idea. "No... Lucille cover your eyes," said Francoeur. After Francoeur turn the switch on, Maynott became blind from the very bright light. Francoeur sneak from behind, after Lucille turned the switch off, Francoeur managed to scare Maynott. After Maynott got scared, he fainted and Lucille ran to Francoeur. "Francoeur, you saved me," said Lucille. "No, we saved each other and you helped made me feel brave," replied Francoeur. Lucille, her sisters, their friends and Francoeur are happy that they won.
Pate, Madame Carlotta and the police arrived on time and Maynott soon woke up. "Pate, I'm glad you and the police made it on time," said Maynott. "Commissioner Maynott, the minister was not happy with the destruction, you caused by your chase," replied Pate. "But I have the monster cornered and the people who were responsible for this whole mess, tell that to the minister," said Maynott. "With pleasure, Maynott, I am arresting you for trying to get Francoeur, Lucille, her sisters and their friend killed," replied Pate. "What, have you lost your mind," said Maynott. "The opposite, I was positive of being a good police officer, but not from an evil person like you, I need a flea to show me the way," replied Pate. "What are you mad, it's only a flea," said Maynott. "There is more humanity in that flea, I see it before me now," replied Pate.
Madame Carlotta soon talks to Lucille, Maud and Bella. "Lucille, I need to talk to you," said Carlotta. "Aunt Carlotta please try to understand, I don't love Maynott," replied Lucille. "I know, but," said Carlotta. "Please don't make Lucille marry Maynott again," replied Maud. "Yes but," said Carlotta. "Beside, do you think our parents would ever wanted this," replied Bella. "I just want you to know, you are right, doing this was the biggest mistake of my life, I guess you girls and Lucille can find your know true love," said Carlotta. "Thank you, Aunt Carlotta," replied Lucille, Maud and Bella. Lucille believes that she can finally be with Francoeur now and forever. The girls are finally happy for Lucille that she can live a life of her own. "Girls and Guys, why are you still in your pajamas," asked Carlotta? "Well, we didn't have time to change because we saw you and the others coming," replied Raoul and Emile. "I see, oh Bella, here is your ring," said Carlotta. "Thank you, Aunt Carlotta," replied Bella.
"What, we had a talk about this," said Maynott. "Face it, Lucille doesn't want to marry you," replied Emile. "I will marry her someday," said Maynott. "I think they are right, Lucille doesn't like you, so the answer is no," replied Carlotta. "Police take him away," said Pate. "Yes sir," replied the police officers. "Don't worry Francoeur, you're safe now," said Lucille. Lucille, Francoeur, Bella, Emile, Maud and Madame Carlotta returned to cabaret, so Lucille, her sisters and their friends can change into normal clothes now, instead of pajamas.
