OK! Seeing as how I've put you guys through so much crap with this, and you still are nice to me, I'm putting this out early. Recap: Kidnap, rescue, confessions, fight, and then intervention! Now it's time for the making up. The question on all your minds I hope is how will it happen? Well, time to find out.
Chapter Six: Confessions
The day after the unknown intervention, Numbuhs Three and Four awoke and each ambled into the kitchen from their own rooms almost as if sleep walking. They both sat down at the table and began to eat breakfast. As Numbuh Three got up to pour herself a glass of chocolate milk, she saw a note on the fridge. It read:
'Numbuhs Three and Four, It's time for my family reunion. I took Two and Five along with me, seeing as how they were the only others we could fit into the car. We'll be back in about five days, so behave. Take care of and defend the Tree house. Numbuh One."

"WHAT? I'm gonna kill him! How dare he leave me here? I mean sure, he couldn't bring me along, but you figure he'da told me that he was going out so I could prepare!" Numbuh Three screeched shrilly. Now fully awake, she stormed to her chair and sitting down with a slam. This woke up Numbuh Four who had fallen asleep in his bowl of Honeycomb. He watched as Numbuh Three noticed that she hadn't gotten her milk and stormed back to the fridge and poured herself her drink.

"What are you going on about?" Numbuh Four asked. He didn't even remember that she wasn't talking to him and expected an answer. Numbuh Three had forgotten too.

"Numbuh One took Two and Five on his family reunion. I mean yeah, it's fine, but he coulda said something before leaving!" She ranted, not paying attention to the fact that it was Numbuh Four. "I mean sure, he naturally HAD to bring Numbuh Five."

"What? Jealous?" Numbuh Four asked.

"No, but he does have a huge crush on her. And vice versa. So it's only natural." She said absently. Then she realized whom she was talking to. "Then he leaves me here with YOU of all people!" She said, not caring to notice that his face fell when she said it.

"Well then, who said I wanna be stuck here with you? It's not good, trust me!" Numbuh Four said jumping up and running to the main room to watch T.V. "Rotten little girl, acting like she's been locked away in a cage with a Lion instead of being here with me." He flopped down on the couch and searched for the remote when the phone rang. He reached out for it, but it quit ringing a second later. Figuring Numbuh Three got it; he sat back and watched television. Twenty minutes later, he saw Numbuh Three coming down the stairs. Her hair was in curly pigtails and she was wearing her long green t-shirt with a pair of shorts. Numbuh Four couldn't help but stare. She wore her shorts often in the summer, but he never noticed how cute it was until now.

"Where're you goin'?" He asked sharply. He didn't like this. Some guy was bound to notice her.

"What does it matter to you?" She asked with a glare that shot chills up his spine. With that she left the Tree house, smiling once again. Numbuh Four flopped back on the couch. 'I'll follow her.' He thought. 'But only after she's gotten far enough that she won't know.'

"Gonna see Numbuh 30C!" Numbuh Three sang skipping down the block. He's the one who called him on the phone, and had asked her if she'd like to go out on a date that afternoon. She'd gladly said yes. As she neared the park, she saw him there, and was surprised to see that he wasn't wearing his hat and goggles. He had messy red hair and bright blue eyes. As she approached him, he pulled out a single red rose and smiled.

"For you Numbuh Three. Thanks for comin' out to see me. I think you're positively adorable. She giggled and blushed as she took the rose.

"Thank you. It was nice of you to ask me out." She said softly. "So where to?" 30C took her hand and led her to the amusement park.

"So that's what that cruddy slushball's up to! I'm gonna kill him! I'll mangle him until he's beggin' for mercy! What's his idea anyway, taking Numbuh Three out?" Numbuh Four fumed as he devised a plan to get them to split up. This was his last chance before Numbuh 30C decided to try and make her his girlfriend. He followed them slowly, and at a measured pace.

"Numbuh Three, I've had a really good time today." Numbuh 30 C said as they had milkshakes and watched the Ferris wheel. It was only about 3:00, but he had to get going. His parents were going back to Hawaii, and he had to pack. She smiled.

"No problem! I needed to get outta the house anywho!" She told him shaking her head. "I'm glad this was a good day." He leaned over to give her a gentle kiss, when a pair of arms wrapped around her neck.

"There you are! Have you been waiting for me long? The movie won't start for another twenty minutes." Numbuh Four asked, his breath ticking her ears. She felt a spark go through her then shook it off.

"What're you talking about?" She asked angrily looking almost ready to kill him on the spot. Numbuh 30C stood to go.

"Thanks for today Numbuh Three. I'll keep in touch." He said and left waving. Once gone, Numbuh Four slid into the vacated chair.

"What do you think you're doin' goin' out with the slushball?!?! Don't you remember he double-crossed us?" Numbuh Three scoffed.

"That was all a big mix-up and you know it! He asked me out 'cuz he's goin' back to Hawaii, and you just ruined it!" She shrieked and got up. Turning quickly on her heel, she left in a huff. Knowing that this wouldn't be pretty, Numbuh Four ran back to HQ.

"Who does he think he is? I try to get over the jerk, and then he comes off acting like the jealous boyfriend! Grrrr. Probably doesn't even like girls anyway!" She giggled at the last statement. She then laughed all the way down the block until she got into the Tree house. "Numbuh FOUR?" she shouted into the silence. Not hearing an answer, she headed straight for his room.

"There's this little girl and I think she's so fine

And I'm not giving up until she is mine

See I want to be her boy and I want her to be my girl

Because since I've met her I been in another world

She was just my friend and now I want more

There's something special to her she's not just another whore"

Numbuh Four sang loudly along with his Discman. 'What's the Dillio' by Mest was blaring and he knew the feeling exactly. He was so absorbed, that he didn't notice Numbuh Three scowling above him until she yanked the headphones off his ears. "What're you doing?" He shouted.

"How dare you ruin my afternoon!" Numbuh Three swung at him, and he only rolled away quickly enough for her fist to make a hole in the mat. He got up and countered with a kick only to miss.

"What are you talking about? It didn't look that great!" He asked swinging at her. He had no intention to hit her; he only hoped to scare her off. She however, was playing for everything.

"Oh, I see, so you're jealous then?" She asked, figuring the nerve to hit.

"Jealous of what?" He was nervous and not paying attention now.

"That I might be taking your boyfriend!" She giggled sauntering over to him. "Isn't that the way it is? You like boys don't you?" (A/N: I know this is an OOC low blow, but I'm enjoying myself, so don't flame me!) Numbuh Four growled and swept her legs out from under her. Once she was lying on the mat, he sat on her stomach and smiled.

"How's this for liking boys?" He asked and gently kissed her on the lips. They both felt the shock and he continued to kiss down her neck softly until he came back up and kissed her forehead. Before he could do anything else, he felt a tiny but powerful fist smash across his face.

"You jerk! What is wrong with you?" She slid out from under him and ran out the door and out the Tree House. Numbuh Four just watched her in awe, disbelieving what he'd just done.
"That jerk! How dare he?" Numbuh Three flopped down on the grass, fuming. It would have been a lie to say that she hadn't enjoyed his kissing her, but the fact that it was out of spite, infuriated her! "How'd I fall in love with such a moron?" She asked futilely.

"It's obvious isn't it? You two are made for each other. He probably doesn't see it. But you did and can't let go." Numbuh 30C said. He was standing above her smiling. Numbuh Three began to protest, but he held up a hand. "It's true, you weren't on the Sub when we were in the Arctic. He didn't even want me looking at you. Then today, he looked so happy holding you in his arms. Trust me, he'll figure it out." He sat down beside her.

"I thought you were leaving." She said softly.

"Yeah, well, I wanted to come back and see the neighbourhood before I left. Then here you were screaming. Go back home. Things'll work out. If they don't I'll help you get over him." He smiled slyly.

Numbuh Three jumped up and ran back to the Tree house. As she entered the main room, she called out to him. She ran up to his room and found the door locked. Under it was a tiny note in messy handwriting:

'Numbuh Three: I realize that the two of us being here alone can lead to disastrous things. Until the others get back, I will be staying at my parents' house. Numbuh Four'

Numbuh Three groaned. She didn't need this to happen. Turning abruptly, she ran to Numbuh Four's Parents' house. There wasn't a car in the driveway, so she climbed the tree to Numbuh Four's window. Peeking in, she saw him sitting on the floor playing video games. She tapped on the window.

"What are you doing here?" Numbuh Four asked after he opened the window for her and she hopped in.

"Hey, come on back. We can work this out." She said with a slight smile. She looked into his dark blue eyes and knew that this would be hard.

"What if I wanna stay here?"

"Let's fight for it. Light sabers, no fists." She saw his fingers reach for the small bruise on his cheek. He sighed.

"Fine. What terms?"

"We go to HQ and battle. Three hits looses. I win you stay and we talk things out. You win it's your choice. He sighed, but nodded. With a squeal, Numbuh Three led the way out the window and back to the Tree House. She grabbed her saber and met Numbuh Four in his room.

"Why are we in my room? It's already a mess from earlier." He asked.

"It's a wrestling ring. Where else would be more appropriate?" She asked with a shrug. They touched sabers then began to fight like fencers. They talked while they fought.

"So who was the picture for?"

"What're you talking about?"

"The Butterfly one that started this all. Really." She sighed.

"I'm not telling." Just then he tapped her side. "Ok, I'm down by one."

"Fine. I'm just sorry that we fought that's all." Numbuh Three stumbled, allowing him another hit.

"Don't say things to throw me off." She said hitting him in the legs. "Two - one, your favour."

"I mean it."

"Uh huh. So why'd you break in on my afternoon? I was enjoying myself."

"I don't like that guy. He's a slushball." Numbuh Four's blows were getting rash as he thought about 30C, allowing Three another hit. "Alright, two all." He knocked her saber from her hand and aimed for her arms, only for her to kick his away at the last second.

"Now, play fair." She said softly. She liked seeing him upset about 30C. Maybe the rogue agent was right about him. Not paying enough attention, she soon found herself in the same place as before, with Numbuh Four sitting on her stomach again.

"Why do I always end up in this position?" She groaned.

"It's the only way to get you to listen to me. That's why." He said. "I have to tell you something." She quirked an eyebrow. "Sorry about before. I didn't mean to upset you. I'm also sorry that I was so mean before. It's made me miserable." He eased off her and pulled her up next to him. She was about to say something, but he placed a finger over her lips to silence her. This was taking all of his courage, and he couldn't stop now. "I lied the other day. I did say that I wanted to be your Samurai. But I got upset and jealous when you said that the picture might not have been to me. Then when you went out with 30C, I got more jealous. He knew you were cute from the get go. I didn't wanna loose you to him. I love ya Numbuh Three, but I didn't know how to tell you." He felt Numbuh Three sigh against him and looked down at her. She was looking up at him with pure shock. So he kept going. "You're the reason Bradford hates me. He somehow knew that I'd end up falling for you and didn't want it either. You must admit, I didn't go as crazy as he did. Of course, kissing you earlier was the wrong way to handle things, and I'm sorry for upsetting you, as good as kissing you felt."

"I'm sorry for hitting you. You were right. Getting kissed by you felt good." She said. She leaned up and kissed him once more. He wrapped his arms around her and kissed her back. When they came up for air, she smiled. "So who won the fight?"

"Who cares?" He asked with a smile. "I'm staying anyways." He told her standing up and offering her his hand.

"How about a game of DDR?" She asked. "I'll even play 'Butterfly' again." He just smiled and ran ahead of her.

"I'll race you!" Numbuh Four shouted from down the hall. Numbuh Three ran behind him, telling him how unfair it was for him to get a head start.
WHAOOO! I'm done! So, how was it? I may put an epilogue, but I really am done this time? How many times have I said that? Ok, I need more ideas. I really would like to write another one. So Keep the reviews coming! I love you all!
