Lavenderpaw: Thanks! I'm glad you liked the POV idea too! I was just sitting around, wondering how this would all look to Rose, and then, bam! I just had to write it. LOL! Well, here's the final chapter! Seriously, I cried when I was writing this last one! Seriously! 00

The next day, we all gathered our things, and put them on the bus. It was time to go home. As I was getting on the bus, I thought about the previous night. I had come extremely close to slaying the American Dragon. Seeing him on this trip made me sure of one thing. One of my school mates was the American Dragon.

Then I remembered the promise I'd made myself to go talk with Jake. I walked over to where he was on the bus.

"Hey, Jake." I said. "Um, listen,I'm sorry we didn't get a chance to hang out this weekend."

He folded his arms and looked at his seat.

"Hey, you were busy..." he mumbled.

"So, you wanted to tell me something?"

I pointed to the empty seat next to him.

"Is this seat taken?" I asked.

He zoned out for a few minutes, just staring into space.

Then, he finally looked at me, and said kinda harshly,"Sorry, it is."

He sort've glared at me, and I wondered if anything was wrong. I wanted to ask him, but Professor Rotwood announced it was time to take our seats from his seat.

With one last look at Jake, I plopped down into a seat further away, and looked out the window.

I sighed.

Jake had been so happy to see me this weekend, and even before then, we had been on our first date. I had thought it'd gone pretty well, until I had to run off. I sighed again.

Had Jake Long lost interest in me after one date? Or was he hiding something from me?

I hoped he hadn't lost interest in me already. I had really begun to become attatched to him when we were on our date, and when we hung out at the school dance after Brad ditched me. He had seemed interested then...I was aching so badly to talk with him.

Sadly, I looked back at Jake, who looked miserable. I wondered what he was thinking about. Trying to figure everything out made my head hurt, though, so I just sat back and closed my eyes for the rest of the ride home.
