improve my writing so much. Also, Jen has grown on me. Lol.. Anyway,
hope you like this. I hope this was worth the wait. It was
like..months in the making. Anyway, I would like to thank each and
every one of my reviewers… my beta, Michelle… and teej who talked
to me during my writer's block-ness. Lol. Thanks you guys! Here it
is! The end of JoTF! Jen of The Future The Final
Jen of The Future
The Final Chapter.
"What, do you think I'm as stupid as you are? Of course I know you don't want to come back!" Jen said angrily
Phil looked at her with mixed emotions but didn't reply. She was right and he knew it. He didn't want to come back.
"I know Phil… I've always known…"
Phil wanted to respond, but all that came out of his mouth was a sigh.
"And I know about Keely…"
"What about Keely?" He said quickly… maybe a little too quickly…
Jen let out a laugh. "See? You don't have to hide it from me, but if you want to, you can at least admit it to yourself. I know, Phil… Everyone does!"
"Jen, why does Keely have to be involved in this? She didn't do anything… she doesn't have anything to do with anything!"
But somewhere, deep within himself, probably from his heart as he was guessing, Phil could hear a voice telling him that Keely had everything to do with… everything.
Keely, his best friend. Keely, the girl who knows everything about him. Keely, the girl who kept his and his family's secret. Keely, the ditzy blonde….
Keely, the girl he loved.
Jen sat down beside Phil, held his hand, and looked him in the eye. "Phil, I know. I know you love her. I can tell, everyone can."
Phil looked down. He knew she spoke the truth. "I'm sorry."
She let out a sarcastic laugh. "You should be. You've kept Keely in agony long enough. And now, you're going back to 2121 without telling her because you're too stupid to figure it out…" He looked at her intensely, and she looked away. "I know what you mean." She wiped the tears from her eyes. "but I really cant go on knowing that I'm not the one you truly love." He looked at him and gave him a weak smile. "I'm Jennifer Wilcox. I'm worth much more than that"
Phil laughed. "It's good to not lose track of who you are in times like these, huh?"
"absolutely" She said as she took the ring off her finger and gave it to him.
"Keep it, I bought it for you"
"I don't want it"
"Fine" he said, pocketing the ring, making a mental note to use it in bribing Pim to stay out of his room.
He took Jen's hand. "Jen, you're beautiful. You're amazing, you're… I don't even know where to begin. And you're right. You're worth much more than what I can give you." She squeezed his hand. "We're not for each other…" He took a deep breath "You'll always be my little sister, Jen. I love you" He kissed her hand.
"I love you too. You'll always be my stupid big brother." Jen said, laughing. "Now go. If you make me cry again I'll kill you. I can't go back in there with smudged makeup."
"Thanks" Phil stood up and began to run toward the entrance.
"Oh yeah, Phil?" Jen called out.
"I had your time machine fixed, but that doesn't mean your family's staying there for good…"
Phil laughed "Thanks, Jen!" and ran off.
Phil walked in to the crowded gym, pushed through the dance floor and went to their table. But to his dismay, Keely wasn't there anymore. He looked around for her, but he found Seth and Tia dancing instead.
"Oh! Hey Phil! Look! I can dance without stepping on anyone!" Seth called out happily.
"That's great, Seth. Hey, do you know where Keely is?"
Tia turned Seth around so she can talk to Phil. "She went out the other exit. She said something about getting her lip gloss from her locker or something-"
But before Tia could finish, Phil ran off and shouted a quick "Thanks".
He walked through the corridor to Keely's locker, but she wasn't there either. Then, he remembered the auditorium.
Phil walked in the auditorium to find Keely sitting front row-center, crying.
Keely looked up as she felt a hand on her shoulder,
Phil sat down behind her. "Keely there's something I have to tell you". He waited for her reply, but nothing came.
"Jen and I…"
"Why didn't you tell me about Jen, Phil?" She suddenly spoke up.
"I… I don't know. I guess…" Keely turned to look at him with tears down her face.
Phil stood up and sat beside Keely. "I guess it was because… we had something… something great…together." Keely scoffed, but Phil continued. "I admit it. I was attracted to you at first because… well, because you reminded me of Jen. But then we got to know each other, became best friends… I thought I was feeling this way because I missed her… that's why I was so happy when I saw her. But then…then I realized that it was you, Keels. You were…and are the one I love." He waited for her to say something, but she didn't, so he continued. "I'm sorry if I hurt you earlier when I asked her to dance when the song… our song played. But that song made me realize how I felt about you…us and that I needed to tell Jen as soon as possible. I didn't mean to hurt you. I wouldn't even dream of hurting you." He stood up and knelt in front of her. "I love you, Keels. I always have, I always will. And I'm so sorry if I hurt you because I was so stupid that I wasn't able to realize that earlier." He looked at Keely, who was crying.
"Don't say that. Jen is here, you'll be going home any time now… You can't just tell me all this and leave me here!"
He took Keely's hands and squeezed them. "We're not leaving, Keels. Out time machine's already been fixed. Jen told me that my parents had decided to settle here. They're going back to the future, but only for supplies… Keely we're staying… I'm staying. I'll never leave you. I love you, remember?"
Keely nodded as she wiped away her tears. She saw him looking at her. "What? My mascara's running!"
Phil laughed. He stood up, and pulled her up as well. He pulled him closer to him and the two shared their first true, magical kiss.
Keely took a mirror from well, Phil didn't know where exactly and checked her make-up. "Great, now my lipstick's smudged too!"
Phil laughed again. He took his wizard out of his pocket and zapped the doors with the rose-colored ray again.
"Please tell me why the rose-colored ray is blue! Are future people colorblind or something?"
Phil walked over to her, pushed a few more buttons on the wizard and the auditorium once again resembled the venue of the Mayor's ball. Keely rolled her eyes as Phil led her to the stage. He then pushed one last button on his wizard and put it down on the floor.
"So, what does that button do? Maybe a Rose blue-colored ray or something?"
Phil gave her a goofy smile as he walked toward her. By the time he reached her, the song… their song started playing. He took her hand and they began dancing.
Keely laughed. "Great timing Mister Willy!" Keely looked at Phil, who was smiling but looked confused.
"Mr Willy! As in Mr. Philly-Willy!"
"Look Keely, since we're uhhm… boyfriend and girlfriend now" Keely blushed at this but nodded in agreement nonetheless, "Can we get that Philly-Willy thing off the table?"
Keely laughed again. "Now that I'm your girlfriend, that's never getting off the table. You are my Philly-Willy." Phil rolled his eyes "Emphasis on 'my'. Plus, you get a kiss everytime I call you Philly-Willy." And with that, she kissed him again. "How's that for you?"
Phil looked satisfied. "I can live with that"
