Chapter 20

New Beginnings


The City of Townsville, and it was preparing to honor their new superheroes, the Rowdyruff Boys.

It was August 31.

The Mayor and Ms. Bellum were in the Mayor's office, planning tomorrow's event.

"Well, looks like we'll again honor those precious little girls!" the Mayor remarked.

"Um sir, tomorrow isn't exactly another ceremony honoring the Powerpuff Girls," Ms. Bellum said.

"It's not?" the Mayor replied. "Well you're wrong, my dear Ms. Bellum. The Powerpuffs are precious little girls."

"Sir, we're not honoring the precious little Powerpuff Girls. We're honoring the Rowdyruff Boys!"

"Um, so the Rowdyruff Boys are precious little girls? I don't get it!"

"Mayor, the Rowdyruff Boys are not precious little girls. They're tough boys who saved the city the other day from monsters and have been saving the day for the past two weeks."

"Uh, the Powerpuff Girls turned into boys and renamed themselves the Rowdyruff Boys! Well, good for them!"

"Sir, the Rowdyruff Boys are boys, and are different from the Powerpuff Girls. They were once evil, yet Dr. William Edwards managed to change them for the better, and now are superheroes."

"The Powerpuff Girls were once evil? Good thing they changed!" the Mayor asserted. "Now, we won't have to fear them committing evil acts of villainy!"

"Oh I give up. Could you just please sign this paper authorizing me to conduct a ceremony honoring the boys?" Ms. Bellum asked, showing the Professor a piece of paper with dotted lines where he was to sign.

"Whatever you say, Ms. Bellum," the Mayor said as he signed the paper. "But I still don't get it! If the good Rowdyruff Boys were the former evil Powerpuff Girls? And I was wondering where to get the money to rebuild Townsville."

"Not to worry sir. Dr. Edwards agreed to loan us $1 billion in order to help us rebuild the city."

Meanwhile…

Dr. Edwards was in his office that afternoon, in the middle of some high business meeting with some of his business associates.

"Are you craze, Doctor? One billion dollars?" Mr. Thanatos Blockhead exclaimed when he heard the doctor's loan.

"Don't worry," Dr. Edwards explained. "It's a loan. They'll pay me back. And besides, it has an interest of 15%. Plus, the money would speed the recovery of the central business district, which would allow the people to financially recover, which means they would be able to buy again my products and they'll give me another part of their money when part of their taxes would go to pay their debt to me. Another thing, in return, the city agreed to give me the tough metallic hide of one of the monsters."

"You're right about the debt thing, but why would you want to get a worthless hide?" asked a sceptical Mr. Blockhead.

"Because, Blockhead, that metallic hide is made of something tougher than diamonds and duranium. I'm gonna find out what it is, and when I do, I'll grab another Nobel Prize for chemistry and I'll either sell it to the government for a hefty prize, or I'll mass produce the metal and sell it to manufacturers. There's no other metal like this and they will all dance to my tune just to get their hands on it. I'll rake in at least $10 billion dollars if this succeeds."

Suddenly, the phone rang.

"Hello?" asked Dr. Edwards.

"This is Sara Bellum, William. I called you because tomorrow, the Mayor would personally thank the girls in behalf of the city. Since I've arranged that the event be covered by the press, can you spare tomorrow morning for the event?"

"Of course," Dr. Edwards said.

"Good. Please prepare for some remarks to the audience, and tell Brick to prepare his speech to the people. Thanks and goodbye," Ms. Bellum said before hanging up.

'This is great! Now my boys will be accepted into my hometown, and will have a bright future,' he thought, his face plastered with a very wide grin. His face then morphed into a serious expression, as doubts began to creep into his mind. 'Oh no! My boys hate the town and its citizens, and they have shown that they won't hesitate to express it,' Dr. Edwards thought, remembering Brick's story when he was about to insult the crowd but luckily collapsed before he was able to do so.

"But what about the board meeting tomorrow?" asked Blockhead.

"Cancel it!" Dr. Edwards said. "Reschedule it for September 2."

"But sir! They'll all complain."

"Damn their complaints! They've got a lot of nerve. The meeting will not be held tomorrow and the board of directors could just curl up in a corner and cry if they don't like it. Of course, you'll phrase it in a more dignified language when you tell them."

"Yes sir," Blockhead said.

"And I'm taking the rest of the day off. Tell Clark to tell the rest of the board members that," Dr. Edwards said. "I'm going to prepare for tomorrow."

Meanwhile…

"Girls, Ms. Bellum just called," Professor Utonium said. "She says that you are invited to a ceremony honoring the Rowdyruff Boys and officially making them superheroes of the city. Could you call Dr. Edwards for me?"

The girls were surprised.

"So the boys will get medals?" Buttercup said.

"Yeah, lucky jerks," Blossom added.

"I don't think they're jerks, and they deserve those medals," Bubbles asserted.

"They're jerks, but you're right Bubbles, they do deserve those medals!" Blossom said as she got the phone and dialled Dr. Edwards' number.

"Hello," said Brick.

"Hi Brick! Can I please speak to Dr. Edwards?"

"He's at work," Brick coldly said, and was about to hung-up the phone when he suddenly heard Blossom.

"Wait Brick, I've got to tell you something," Blossom said.

"What?" asked Brick in a flat monotone.

"Don't you know that the town's going to give you medals for saving the day? They're going to make you official superheroes?"

"And your point is?" asked Brick in an uninterested manner.

"Aren't you excited?" asked Blossom.

"What's to be excited about? Tell whoever told you that that this ruff and his brothers will not accept a piece of metal for something that I did only for my Dad. You accept it instead, since you're so gung-ho about being a superhero." Brick then hung-up the phone.

"Uh oh, I think things are not going to look pretty tomorrow," Blossom said, and told her sisters what Brick told her.

"And we'll just sit back and enjoy the show," Buttercup said. "Ha, who would have thought that those idiots would mess themselves up this early?"

"No we won't. We can't let them slip up this early. We have to help them become better superheroes," Bubbles argued.

"Wrong Bubbles," Buttercup said. "We don't need to help them become superheroes. They already proved that they can kick some butt and can save the day, so why should we help them still?"

"Because, they might be as strong as us, and have better cooperation, and can kick the monsters butts, and can still win even if outnumbered and weaker," Blossom said to Buttercup. "But they don't know how to act as superheroes to the public. They don't know how to behave. Heck, they don't even want to admit they're superheroes?"

"And what you're suggesting is?" Buttercup said.

"We teach them and guide them on the ways of being a superhero!" Blossom replied. "Under my leadership, they'll be good model superhero boys under our supervision!"

"And how are you sure they'll follow you, Miss Goody two shoes?" Buttercup challenged sceptically.

"I'm not sure, it may or it may not involve the doctor, but rest assured, when I think of a plan, I'll have the boys wrapped around my finger."

"I sure hope your new plan doesn't lead to disaster!" Buttercup said.

"Of course not," Blossom said. Then with a straight face, she cockily added, "my plans never fail!"

Buttercup and Bubbles just rolled their eyes at Blossom.

"Now we can be friends with them and they can be true superheroes!" Bubbles exclaimed, leaping and jumping. "Let's go to their house!"

"We can't, dummy!" the toughest puff said. "We're grounded!"

"Oh yeah," the blond puff replied, "But Blossom could call and ask the boys to come over? What do you think Blossom?"

"Well, I don't know," she said.

"Uh c'mon Blossom," Bubbles said. "You promised!"

"Okay, okay," Blossom said as she grabbed the phone and dialled again the Edwards's phone number.

"Hello, Edwards family residence," she heard Brick answer.

"Hello Brick, it's me," Blossom said.

Brick just sighed. He was irritated by the phone calls. "What do you want this time?" he said in a harsh tone.

"Um Brick, would you like to come over here to our house? We would like to talk to you?" she asked in the most polite voice she could muster.

She heard a guffaw, a chuckle and a snort. "Sure, why not? Of course! Me and my brothers will love to come."

Blossom's eyes brightened. "Really?"

"Yeah, and my mother's the queen of Egypt. No, you imbecile, we won't go to your stupid house. Why would we ever go to a house to be with such weak girly morons like you? Ha, that would be the day!" Brick insulted, and hung up the phone. He also neglected to tell that another reason why he and his brothers could not go was because they were also grounded.

Blossom was furious and steam was ready to come out of her head. 'Okay Blossom, just calm down. Breathe slowly, and count to ten. Don't let him get to you. It's only Brick, and he isn't worth it.' She then slowly returned the phone. It worked. She didn't blow up, yet she was still angry at Brick.

"Well, they can't go here," Blossom said.

"Oh, then how—I know, let's tell the Professor the problem," Bubbles suggested.

"That's a good idea, Bubbles," Blossom said. "Professor!"

"I don't know why you're even trying," Buttercup derisively said.

"Yes girls," John Utonium said, emerging from the laboratory. "Did you call William?"

"We did, but he wasn't home. But we need your help in something else…" and Blossom and Bubbles told the Professor their problem with the boys.

"Um, I'll see what I can do," he said. He then got the phone and called the Rowdyruff Boys.

"Hello," he heard Brick say.

"This is Professor Utonium, the creator and father of the Powerpuff Girls and one of the foremost scientists in Townsville. I would like to say that I have the honor to announce that you and your brothers will be the guest of honor in an ceremony making you official superheroes of Townsville and I and the rest of the city would appreciate it if you would come," he said, trying to impress the boys with a voice of authority.

"With all due respect, Professor, if you had talked to your daughters, you would know that my brothers and I would decline such an offer for it is inappropriate. So please stop with the phone calls already," Brick said, then hung up.

"They declined it! Oh well, better tell Ms. Bellum to call add more confetti and streamers. Tomorrow's gonna be a big day for the city and for the boys!" Professor Utonium said, seemingly unconcerned.

"But Professor," Bubbles began.

"Don't worry girls," the Professor replied. "I'm sure that tomorrow the boys will come and accept the honor. I'm also sure William would be thrilled about the news."

"Okay, but can we go out and try to talk to them in their home?" asked Blossom.

"Yes, pretty please, with sugarlumps on top?" Bubbles seconded.

"Oh, you three are so precious, and so cute. I would love to," he said. The girls beamed, but the Professor's tone immediately changed. "BUT YOU'RE GROUNDED, SO YOU CAN'T!" he shouted. "So go on do the things kids do," he said, his tone returning to pleasant.

"This isn't good!" Blossom said. Bubbles concurred while Buttercup thought both of them were crazy.

'If those boys wanna screw up, why would we stop them?' she thought.

Meanwhile…

Dr. Edwards arrived in his house a couple of minutes later. "Boys, I have news. Tomorrow, the town will make you official heroes of the city and you'll get nice new medals too!"

"The nerve of those people!" Butch ranted. "Making us superheroes and giving us medals!"

"As if we did all those things for them, the idiotic people of Townsville!" Brick added. "I'd rather insult them rather than accept anything from them. And imagine us, superheroes?" He then began laughing. "Give me a break. If it isn't for you Dad, those people would be monster chow, and we would not even lift a finger to stop it."

"What was worse was those girls calling us about it! As if to add insult to injury! And Blossom, that damned girl—has the gall to call here and tell us about it!" Boomer said.

"So you already know about it?" Dr. Edwards said.

"You bet we did, Dad. Those girls called us, but I told them off," Brick proudly said. "I told them that the city could keep its medals, and we don't need to be considered superheroes!"

"You did what?" Dr. Edwards nearly shouted, who can't believe what his boys just did.

"We told her to buzz off, and even Professor Utonium called us, and fearless leader here told him to take a hike," Butch proclaimed.

"And why should we accept those awards?" argued Brick. "Those people are utter idiots, imbeciles, morons, and retards. They'd even repeatedly elected a mayor with an IQ lower than a dog. They can't take care of themselves for crying out loud! To hell with the Townies. We're just doing what we did to protect you and your properties all over this city, to prove how loyal and grateful we are to you Dad!"

"And those girls!" Boomer said. "Bubbles is the only one tolerable among them, but the other two, especially Blossom, just makes my blood boil! After what they did! Just because Brick forgave them doesn't give them the right to tell us what and what not to do! They'll just have to be reminded that we could beat them in any fair fight if we wanted to."

"Well, can't say I don't agree with you," Dr. Edwards said. "This town has a collective IQ lower than that of training flea. And good job on telling the professor off. And I can't blame you for feeling that way for the girls. However, you must forget about the past and move on. Don't let emotions influence your decisions. You must be rational in your decisions, even if it would make you cold-blooded. See if it would benefit you. Now, as for the ceremony tomorrow, I know you dislike the people, but it would benefit you more if you accept it than if you reject it. SO I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU ACCEPT IT."

"But Dad—"

"I'm telling you to accept it, whether you like it or not!" Dr. Edwards thundered. "Besides, I would be even more proud of you three if you do."

"Yes Dad," the three finally said, defeated.

"Good. Prepare to make some remarks to the people tomorrow."

With that, Dr. Edwards went to his lab to further test the monster hide.


II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II


That night…

"Dad, look at the speech I made," Brick said, handing his father a piece of paper with his remarks printed on it. With him were his brothers who helped him.

"Citizens of Townsville,

Do not flatter yourselves into thinking that by coming here, I accept the fact that I am a "superhero" to save your worthless hides. No, I did not save you because I love you, or care about you, like these first set of girly superheroes do. Why would I save a bunch of idiots, morons, imbeciles like you? I mean you can't chew gum and walk at the same time, your combined IQ's is a single digit number, you've got a common sense of a clown? You're lucky that you're living in the same town as our father, Dr. William Edwards…"

Dr. Edwards crumpled the paper and threw it in the waste basket.

"Brick," he began, "I don't think insulting the people is a very good idea. You want to have a new life, don't you Brick?"

"Yes Dad," the three answered.

"Then you can't go around insulting everybody you see just because you think they're idiots. At least pretend that you like them, or at lease, refrain from showing your contempt at them."

"But Dad, I don't want to lie," Brick reasoned.

"Then tone it down at least. Just tell the parts which will not insult them, and try to make them feel good. I know it's difficult to do, but you just have to do it."

"Yes Dad," the three said.

"And remember that test you took a few months ago?" Dr. Edwards said.

"What about it, Dad," the asked.

"Well son, it's actually an entrance examination for Pokey Oakes Elementary. All of you passed with flying colors and are now eligible for enrolment in the first grade. In fact, you've all gotten into the top six. Here's the result:" he then gave the paper to the boys.

William Bricker Edwards Jr. 99.97

Blossom Utonium 99.94

James Boomer Edwards 96.54

Bubbles Utonium 94.26

Buttercup Utonium 94.20

Wilbur Butch Utonium 93.00

"We're going to school?" Bricks said.

"Yes. Aren't you excited?"

"But Dad, why would we go to school? We know most of those things they teach, and you can teach us what we don't know."

"Well, you need to go to school if you want to take over my corporation when you grow up. And by going to school, you can again show how superior you are to the Powerpuff Girls."

The boys accepted it, but it doesn't mean they liked the idea of going to school.

It was the morning of September 1.

A crowd of citizens have gathered in front of Townsville Hall. The Mayor was in a podium, with Ms. Bellum besides him. At his left were the Professor, and the girls sitting on three chairs, wearing their usual clothes and dresses. On his right were four empty chairs, reserved for Dr. Edwards and the Rowdyruff Boys. Above was a giant banner with the words, 'THANK YOU ROWDYRUFF BOYS, OUR NEW SUPERHEROES' on them. The crowd has various placards saying 'Thanks RRB' and 'Welcome back, Dr. Edwards,' and 'Go RRB' and such.

"Professor, why haven't they arrived yet?" Blossom asked the professor, remembering her conversation with her counterpart yesterday, worried that they won't show up.

"Don't worry," the Professor said. "I'm sure they'll arrive."


II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II II


After ten minutes…

"Professor, do you think we might go and fetch them," asked a concerned Bubbles.

"No, they'll arrive, trust me on this," said the Professor.

"But—"

But before Bubbles could finish, Dr. Edwards' car arrived.

Boomer and Butch were the first to go out the car. They were arguing about something, but stopped when they saw the crowd staring at them.

The girls were surprised at the clothes the boys were wearing. Instead of wearing their usual clothes, each of them was wearing a suit and tie. The difference was that Butch was wearing a green set, with a black tie, and his coat was unbuttoned while Boomer wore a blue one, and a red tie, with his coat buttoned. They look very sharp in those clothes, the girls admitted.

A few seconds later, Brick and Dr. Edwards emerged from the front seats. Brick was wearing a red coat and tie, but unlike his brothers, was wearing a vest and a hat, just like his father. 'Brick looks like his father when he's wearing those,' Blossom thought. His father wore a black set of clothes, complete with vest and hat, with a blue tie.

Boomer was starting to sweat when he saw all those eyes staring at them. Butch just glared at the crowd while Brick had a neutral expression.

A few seconds later, the crowd erupted into cheers, surprising the boys. Boomer's sweating ended, and he began to wave back to the crowd, clearly enjoying himself. Butch continued to glare, while Brick smirked. Confetti and streamers began falling all around them. Soon, they were led to the steps of Townsville Hall and sat on the right of the Mayor's podium, with Dr. Edwards and Brick removing their hats.

"Citizens of Townsville, it gives me great pleasure in honoring the Rowdyruff Boys and to officially make them new heroes of Townsville. To officially welcome them today are the current superheroes, the Powerpuff Girls! So Blossom, it's your turn," the Mayor then stepped down and Blossom went over to the podium.

The crowd cheered.

"Citizens of Townsville," Blossom began as the cheering subsided, "as the leader of the foremost superheroes of Townsville, I would like to say that I would always protect Townsville from evildoers. To the Rowdyruff Boys, as new superheroes, I would remind you that you should always serve the city and protect it at all costs against all enemies, external and internal, and love the city and its citizens. As you are probably inexperienced in the ways of a superhero, I, Blossom Utonium, commander and the leader of the greatest superhero team in the world, would teach you and guide you in the ways of being a hero. I would make sure you would be as experienced and good as yours truly, and would use your powers properly."

'Like hell you would,' Brick thought. 'We won't follow your orders.'

"She's got enough hot air to launch an airship airborne," Boomer whispered to Butch.

"For once, I agree with you," Butch whispered back.

Even Dr. Edwards, who normally was sympathetic to the girls, was put off by Blossom's remarks. 'Who does she think she is, presuming she could lecture my sons?'

"And now, to present the medals to the boys, me and my sisters would give them to our counterparts the medals they deserve," Blossom continued. "Boomer, would you go in front of the podium please?"

Boomer stood, and the crowd cheered. He waved at the crowd as he walked in front of the podium. Bubbles stood up and went to where Boomer was, and she pinned to his coat a shiny gold medal with a ribbon hanging on it. Then to the surprise of everybody, she gave a peck on Boomer's cheek. Bubbles then giggled, then returned to her seat.

Boomer, like so many times in the past, was caught off guard by Bubbles' actions. He blushed, then took a handkerchief and wiped his cheek. 'Yuck, now I have cooties,' he thought, shuddering, 'Why the hell did she do that? Now Brick and Butch will never lay off me.'

"Butch, you're next," Blossom said, herself giggling at the event. 'Ha, now I've something to tease Bubbles with.'

Butch walked besides the Boomer. Buttercup then went where the green ruff was, and pinned the medal on his coat. She did, however, press it too hard, with the result of the pin of the medal going right through the cloth and piercing Butch's skin.

"Take that," she whispered to Butch.

"I'll get you for that!" Butch replied.

"You wish," Buttercup said, and returned to her seat.

Butch fought the urge to lunge after Buttercup and beat her to a pulp.

"And finally Brick," she said as she stepped out of the podium. Brick then walked towards her, in a straight, dignified manner.

"I thought you'd never accept a piece of metal for something you did for your Dad," Blossom whispered as she pinned the medal in Brick's coat.

"I was just testing you to find out if I can fool you. Turns out you're the gullible type," Brick replied, also whispering. "Besides, accepting this medal would make my father more proud of us, and that alone would outweigh my initial disgust of it."

"Well, it's your turn to speak to the people. I suggest you keep your ego in check and refrain from insulting the audience."

"I don't need to take any advice from you," Brick replied.

"Just remember the future, Brick. Don't mess this one up. If not for the people, then for your Dad."

The crowd roared wildly as Brick stepped behind the podium. He waved a little, despite his attitude, to acknowledge the cheers. It soon subsided enough for Brick to begin.

"Citizens of Townsville," he began, but was interrupted as the crowd roared again at the sound of his voice. He had to wait a minute before the cheers of the crowd died down.

In their seats, Blossom was worried that Brick might make a stupid remark, or worse, a speech telling the people how stupid they were.

"I would like to say, with all due respect, that me and my brothers don't deserve these medals, for we don't consider ourselves superheroes," he began.

"Don't be so modest!" one of the people in the crowd shouted.

"Yeah! You're superheroes!" another shouted.

Brick ignored them as he continued. "We don't consider ourselves superheroes because what we did was for us as natural as going to the bathroom. What we did, we did because it was our duty to our father, Dr. William Edwards. We don't deserve these medals, but still, we accept it, because it would show our outmost gratitude to the man who changed our lives the most, and for the better. If there's anybody who deserves these medals and your thanks, it is my father, not us."

"Finally, I would like to say, that, even if we don't want you to call us superheroes, we still would do our duty to save the city."

Dr. Edwards was very proud of his sons at that moment. 'They succeeded in voicing out their true feelings without insulting Townsville. I'm very proud of you, my sons.'

The crowd erupted into cheers, even as Brick looked at them in contempt. 'Look at them, so stupid, so gullible,' he thought as he went back to his seat.

And so ends the journey of the Rowdyruff Boys for acceptance by the people of Townsville, the Powerpuff Girls, and themselves, at least outwardly, towards the people of Townsville. Dr. Edwards' dream came true. His sons were now socially acceptable, and what's more, they were heroes. They were also finally accepted by the Powerpuff Girls, and they accepted the fact that they would have to live with them.

The boys had by this time changed enormously. They no longer crave to beat up the Powerpuff Girls, nor to cause chaos and destruction for its own sake. They love and were extremely loyal to their father. They no longer just insult anybody for its own sake, and they now protect Townsville, even if it was for selfish reasons. In short, they have changed for the better.

However, much remained the same. They disliked the Powerpuff Girls, more so after the third fight. They were still contemptuous of the people of Townsville. They still do many good things only as a favor to their father, not because they thought it was right. Their standard of right and wrong was what their father tells them.

Much more would happen, but that is for another story.


THE END

So overall, now that it's finished, how was the story? The characters? The plot? Please tell me so I can improve my next story.

At last, I finished writing this story. I decided to end it because the purpose of this fic, to reintroduce the Rowdyruff Boys, to get them to be accepted by the Powerpuff Girls and the city, and for them to change sufficiently so they be acceptable, for them to at least tolerate the girls, is accomplished.

Thanks to all my reviewers. And just so you would know, I am planning another story to continue. Can you guess what will happen? I bet you can't!

And if you have any questions on this chapter, or of the story itself, just ask them, and I'll post one last chapter devoting to answering the questions and of the author thanks for this chapter.

Again, to all the readers, thank you for reading my story.


Author Thanks


To Uncle Sam,thanks for the compliments. And thanks for the review. Yup, this chapter answered your next question.


To Ud the Imp, well, they did, but not totally. As for Bubbles' crushes, let's just say you might or might not be correct (though this chapter kinda answers it). And I've ended this story. Hope you like it!


To Akum, wow, you reviewed. Thanks!


To Hairy Gregory, that's one way to put how the boys feel! As for the crushes, I'm not telling! Yup it did, didn't it (about the story coming to a natural end)?


To sum-jackass, well, they did, didn't they? As to it evolving into romance, well, maybe, maybe not! And I just finished it.


To Ivygreen,your right about Blossom's plans not always succeeding. And thanks.


To Spiritual Tao,thanks for reading and reviewing.


To TJ Rose, Yup it's nice of them. As for Bubbles rubbing off on Boomer, well maybe you can read the next story. Yup, the boys did change a lot, but a lot remained the same.


To SupersayainkingTommy,long time no see. Well, I continued!


To nightglider-star, sorry for the long speeches. I usually use them because I feel it better conveys the emotions and the feelings of the person talking than just one-liners. Though if you noticed, I'd try limiting it to Brick, Blossom, Dr. Edwards and Professor Utonium. And thanks, though could you be a little more elaborate on what you mean by my sense of organization?


To Dooly,well, they are little kids! Well, it didn't really. As they said, they accepted it because it is in their self-interest to do so, not because they really felt sorry for the girls, though it was somehow cleared enough when the girls went after them. As for the PPG gaining a new respect for the boys, it is because they saw a new side of the boys. They saw that in many ways, they're just like them. As for the boys, the memories of the fight were still lingering. Their opinions of the boys improved because of the girls' apology, thought not as much because they were still bitter. As for the alliance, well, read the next story to find out!


To Somewei, thanks. Well, not in their hearts, but in their heads. Well, Blossom is the leader!


To Bubblebean022,wow, thanks for the great compliments.


To BrYtt BRatt,thanks. Yup, it isn't, but it'll be for another story.
