I DON'T OWN DEGRASSI OR THE DIALOGUE

To say that my senior year at Degrassi was emotionally draining, would be putting it nicely. I was hoping that the second half of my last year at Degrassi would be easy, but no, It was just as hard as all the others. First there was the Lakehurst kids invading, then that bitch Darcy Edwards almost ruined Snake's career with her lies, and finally, my dad, he was the worst. He damn near killed me in the fight. We eventually made peace, but i'm getting ahead of myself. Let me start at the beginning: It was after winter break, Emma and I had spent a lot of time together and we had sex every once in awhile, but we didn't do it too often because we wanted it to be special. I'd told Kevin that I was thinking about going to college. He said he understood my decision and we agreed to keep collaborating on breaks. It was all set up by the time Winter Break ended. On the first day back, Emma and I were walking hand in hand while she was getting over Manny going blonde.

"New semester, new hair?" Emma asked.

"I needed a change." Manny replied. "The only thing worse than going back to school is going back to school in winter."

"Well, every step we take gets us one step closer to graduation." We watched as the Degrassi parking lot got filled up with buses. Even Darcy Edwards, the ultra Christian girl noticed it.

"Why is it so busy around here?" She asked.

"Welcome to the new world of Degrassi/Lakehurst cohabitation." Emma said.

"How can the people from the school that killed J.T. be coming here?" Toby asked after some Lakehurst jerk bumped into him.

"Their school burns down, we get their ashes. Great idea school board." Emma said in a smart ass tone of voice.

"What are the chances there'll be a single cute guy?" Manny asked as we all stared at her.

"What? Sorry?" Manny said as I couldn't help but laugh.

"Manny, I swear, you have a one track mind." I said as Emma kissed me on the cheek.

"Well, maybe someone new will steal Darcy away from his evil highness." She replied as we saw Peter sucking up to his friends as Darcy walked over to him.

"His evil highness has been defeated by the powers of good, IE: me. We're in love and he's reformed. I have that effect.

"If anyone could, it's the blessed virgin Darcy." Manny said. I will admit, that one got a laugh out of me.

I'M SORRY IT'S TAKEN ME SO LONG TO START THE FINAL CHAPTER OF THE JAMES STARK SAGA. REVIEWS APPRECIATED.
