I'm sooo sorry. I didn't mean to not update so long. I can't believe it's been 6 months. I didn't realize it's been so long. But it's here and I hope you like it. Thanks to those who reviewed for the last chapter! This is the final chapter!
Mimi sat on the edge of her bed looking out at the window. She had packed all of her things into her suitcases and bags an hour ago. She couldn't sleep at all last night. She felt exhausted but no matter how hard she tried, she just couldn't sleep. There were many thoughts floating in her head. 'Who was he going to pick?' 'Will he pick her?' 'Should she have told him she loved him?'
She gave a loud sigh and fell backwards onto her bed at this thought. Did she love him? She had never really been in love so was the feelings she had for him love? He's always in her thoughts. She always wondered what he was doing and whether or not he was thinking of her. She would remember the times they were together and how he made her feel. Thinking of that smile of his always put a smile on her face.
Matt was in the living room sitting on the couch, fidgeting with his hands. He had already made his decision. Surprisingly, it was easy to make. He just hoped everything will go all right and go as planned.
"So you sure you want to do this Matt?" Steve asked.
"Yeah..." Matt trailed off. "Let's do this."
Mimi was a nervous wreck. She paced back and forth in her room with her hands behind her back. She was pretty sure she made an imprint on the carpeted floor but she didn't care at the moment. There was a knock on the door and she stopped in her tracks. She stared at the door. This was it. Either she'll have a happily ever after with Matt or she'll go back home, alone. It was funny. She waited for this moment and now that it was here, she wasn't sure if she could handle it.
There was another knock at the door. The butterflies in Mimi's stomach were going crazy. She took a deep breath and let it out slowly. It was time. "Come in."
The door gradually opened. She saw who it was and her heart dropped to her stomach. 'How could this be? I was so sure he was-'
"Hey Mimi. I'm sorry..." Steve said as he looked down at the floor. He knew her heart must be breaking into a hundreds of pieces at the moment and couldn't bear to look at her in the eyes. "I wish I didn't have to be the one to do this but... it's my job."
Mimi could feel herself on the verge of crying but didn't want to cry right now. She hated people seeing her cry. She held back the tears and tried to smile at Steve. "Well... this is kind of awkward..." She tried to joke.
"Are you going to be okay Mimi?" Steve asked. He went over to her and put an arm on her shoulder.
She couldn't hold back the tears any longer. She didn't give a damn anymore. She shook her head and cried silently into Steve's shoulder. He embraced her and let her cry.
It had been about a week since Mimi came home. She was sitting on the couch wearing her pink bathrobe eating strawberry ice cream out of the container watching a soap opera. She felt numb. She cried herself out. The first couple of days were horrible. Everything she saw reminded her of 'him.' Tai, TK and Kari kept calling to make sure she was okay and offered to stay with her. She declined their offer though, she just wanted to be alone. But they kept persisting and said they would come today even if she said no.
"Now remember, don't mention the M word okay? It might set her off." Kari reminded as they stood outside of Mimi's door.
"What M word?" Davis asked.
"Matt, stupid." TK said as he reached out and rang the door bell.
"I knew that!" Davis replied angrily.
"If so, then why did you ask!" TK said heatedly.
"BOYS!" Kari yelled. "We are here for Mimi okay. And to execute phase 2 of the plan."
Davis looked at her confused. "What plan?"
Mimi opened the door with her carton of ice cream in her hand. "See, I'm alive. Alright bye now..." She tried to close the door but TK prevented her from doing so by sticking his foot in the door.
"Come on Mimi. Don't be like that. You need some human company. You don't want to be a hermit now do you? Ow! You're beginning to hurt me Mimi!"
"I want to be a hermit!" Mimi retorted and tried to shut the door.
"Please let us in Mimi! We're worried about you!" Kari pleaded.
"We have ice cream!" Davis yelled.
Mimi stopped trying to shut the door and looked at her ice cream. She was running low and this was the last carton she had. She sighed and opened the door. They came in. She held her hand out and Davis gave her the ice cream. Kari gasped when she saw the living room. Usually it was very neat and tidy. Now there were tissues everywhere and empty cartons of ice cream on the floor. Mimi sat back on her couch and watched the TV as TK, Kari and Davis sat down.
"Sooo... how are you doing Mimi?" TK asked.
"I told you, I'm fine." Mimi said in a slightly annoyed tone.
"If you were fine, why are you eating so much ice cream?" Kari questioned.
"Yeah," Davis laughed. "Are you trying to break the world record for eating the most ice cream?"
Kari glared at him. Maybe it was a bad idea to bring Davis. Mimi had the urge to throw her ice cream at him but thought against it. If she did, she wouldn't have anymore ice cream.
"Anyway, you've haven't been out of your house for a week. You need to get out, get some fresh air. Fresh air is good for you." Kari said.
"Fresh air is overrated." Mimi replied.
"You can't stay in this house forever. You need to move on with your life." TK said.
"Yeah, you don't need Matt." Davis tried to help out.
They all saw Mimi cringed a little when Matt's name was mentioned. TK and Kari put their heads in their hands.
Mimi put her spoon down and placed the ice cream carton on the coffee table. "This is ridiculous. You guys shouldn't have to refrain yourself from saying his name. Maybe I should start moving on..."
Kari smiled. "That's the spirit! Oh! At the theater they are doing this special thing where they are showing classic old movies. We're all going, you should come with us. It'll be fun. I know how much you love those silent black and white movies." Mimi looked hesitant. "Please Mimi? I really want you to come."
Mimi sighed. "Fine." There's no harm in going to the movies right? What can happen?
TK and Kari couldn't hide the smiles on their faces. Mimi wondered what they were up to. But then she noticed Davis's hand was moving in on her ice cream and she slapped it away and forgot all about it.
They were playing one of her favorite movies. From time to time she would look over to TK and Kari and see them cuddling with each other. They looked so happy together... that was supposed to be her and Matt. She felt like crying again but held it back and tried to focus on the movie. No matter how hard she tried to think about something else, it always winds up back to Matt. She supposes she's happy for him. She wants him to be happy... even if it meant it wasn't with her. It doesn't make the pain any easier to deal with.
She looked at the other side of her and saw Davis sleeping in his chair with his mouth slightly opened. It made her smile. She looked up at the screen. It was the ball room scene. How she wished she could escape her life for one moment and be in the movie. Just dance with a handsome guy and have no problems or worries. One of the guest looked exactly like Matt. He had his face structure, his height, and even his spiked hair. Which is a bit odd since that hair style wasn't popular back then. She didn't think anybody had their hair like that. Seeing that look alike was too much for her to handle. It brought back strong memories and she had to get away from them. She didn't want to be reminded of him. The fact that he didn't have the same feelings she had for him.
Mimi got up and made her way to the door.
"Where are you going?" Kari asked quietly.
"I just need some air. I'll be back." Mimi answered.
Kari had a look of panicked on her face. 'Why is Kari acting so weird? I'm just getting some air...' Mimi thought.
"Can't you wait until after the movie is over? It's just getting to the good part."
"I've seen it before. And why are you being this way?" Mimi questioned.
Mimi was stunned and looked at the screen. She was shocked because the movie was supposed to be silent. She looked at the screen in confusion. What was happening?
One of the characters said her name. In fact... it was the one that looked a lot like Matt.
He was standing still as everyone in the background was dancing. "Hey princess, it's been awhile." He smiled.
Mimi was in complete shock. Her legs couldn't hold her up any longer so she sat down in the aisle. Was this a dream?
"Mimi, you drive me crazy sometimes. And even though I may seem annoyed with it, I actually like it. You just have this effect on me. Every time I'm around you, you make me want to smile. I think about you constantly and I don't want it to stop. And I know it sounds corny but you complete me." Matt laughed. He got down on one knee and held out a box. "I love you so much. Will you marry me?"
Mimi continued to stare at the screen in disbelief. Then she saw a figure get up from their seat and was walking towards her. It was Matt. He crouched down to her and smiled at her. "So what do you say princess?"
She looked at him. Her emotions were everywhere! Just moments ago she was feeling extremely depressed. And now? She felt...
Matt got punched by Mimi really hard. He was not expecting that to be her answer. "Ow!"
"DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT YOU PUT ME THROUGH!" Mimi yelled as she stood up. She was pissed. "I cried myself to sleep for days! All I could think about was how I lost you! All I did was watched TV and ate ice cream! YOU KNOW HOW MUCH WEIGHT I GAINED BECAUSE OF YOU!"
Matt stood up and held her hands. "I wanted to propose to you romantically. I wanted you to be surprised."
Mimi was touched by what he said and calmed down a bit. "So you didn't pick Sora?"
Matt shook his head and kissed her hand. "I pick you. The question is though, will you be with me?"
She thought about it. Matt hoped to God his plan didn't backfire on him. Mimi smiled real big and hugged him tightly. "Of course."
Matt gave out a sigh of relief and gave her an earth shattering kiss as he hugged her tightly.
Everyone in the theater applaud and cheered. The noise woke Davis up from his sleep. "Did I miss something?" He said groggily.
"Matt proposed to Mimi and she accepted!" Kari squealed as she cried in happiness.
"WHAT! What the hell! What happen?" He looked at the screen and saw Matt was on there. "How did Matt get on there!"
"He got a lot of actors to reenact the ball room scene and put it in the movie." TK explained.
"So wait, you two knew about this?" Davis asked. The couple nodded their head with big smiles on their faces. "Why didn't I know about it?"
"Everyone knows you can't keep a secret." TK answered.
"I can too keep a secret! Nobody knows I cry when I watch Bambi!" Davis yelled. TK and Kari laughed as Davis blushed. "I mean... I don't cry..."
Matt and Mimi broke out of their kiss and stared at each other happily. "What would you have done if I said no?" Mimi asked.
"Then I would have to go to Plan B."
"What's Plan B?"
"To turn back time and make you fall for me."
Mimi laughed and smiled. "And how would you do that?"
"With my time machine of course." Matt kissed her nose.
"You're such a dork." Mimi stated.
"Well, I'm a lucky dork." Matt said sticking out his tongue at her.
"You're my dork. I love you."
"And I love you." As they shared another passionate kiss.
"Look how adorable they are!" Kari exclaimed as she watched the newly engaged couple.
"You know, I would have never in a million years think they would get together." TK said as he put his arm around her. "They sure make an unlikely couple."
Oh my God. It's complete. Finally. After like 3 years lol. I'm sad that it's done, but glad at the same time. It's bittersweet.
