In these eyes

More than words

More than anything that I've spoken

As the skies turned to grey

My heart's just about to crack open

"Phil?" Keely asked, spinning round at the sound of his voice.

Phil nodded. "Yeah, it's me, Keels"

Suddenly her old nickname didn't seem that bad. Not when Phil said it.

So the story goes

There's something you should know

Before I walk away and I blow the ending

Keely took a breath, and looked at Phil, and then at the floor. Her eyes were full of tears, but she hadn't quite decided if they were tears of joy because he had come back, or tears of pain. "What are you doing here?"

"Like I was going to wait for you," Phil said. "I couldn't wait. Not when you were right here."

I never want to be without you

Oh no, here I go

Now you know

What I feel about you there's no running

I must have been wrong to doubt you

Oh no there I go

No control

And I'm fallen

So now you know

Keely looked at the floor.

"Um…we kind of need to get the next performer on the stage. If you could take this somewhere else," the announcer asked.

Keely nodded. "Sure."

Then she walked away, and Phil had to run to keep up with her.

Feel so light

Craving oxygen

All this truth's left me empty

Will you run

Can you handle it

Cause I need you to tell me

Maybe this is bold

But I'm hoping you'll stay for the happy ending

"Keely, what's the matter?" Phil asked. "I thought you'd be happy that I came back."

Keely walked out of the gym doors, and into the night. "You thought I'd be happy? Is that the only reason you came back? It wasn't because you actually liked me. No, you just felt sorry for me. Well I don't care. I was trying to get on with my life. You left me and made me pick up all the pieces by myself. And I did. But there's one piece that got so broken, that I couldn't repair it. So I'm not the same Keely you left behind. But I was okay with that."

"Keel. You talked to me. After your performance. You asked me if I heard it. Like I was your guardian angel or something. You dedicated the song to me. You're not completely happy being this Keely. And I don't want you to be this Keely. I want my Keely back," Phil said, sitting down next to her on the grass.

I never want to be without you

Oh no, here I go

Now you know

What I feel about you there's no running

I must have been wrong to doubt you

Oh no there I go

No control

And I'm fallen

So now you know

Keely looked up at the sky, which was dotted with stars. "You know, I had to force myself to turn up tonight. I didn't want to go to prom, and have all these couples, laughing, and having fun, because that reminded me too much of you. At the Mayors Ball. And at the Ladies Choice Dance. I had to force myself to come."

"That wasn't the Keely I knew and loved," Phil said.

Keely looked at him, surprised.

No I won't look back

When I tell you what I think about you

No I won't look back

When I tell you what I think about you

"What?" Phil asked, not realising what he had just said.

Keely smiled. "You just said. You said that you loved me."

"What? No I didn't!" Phil said, trying to remember when he had said it. "Did I?"

Keely nodded. "Yeah. But that's kind of good. I don't want to be 'poor Keely' anymore. Everyone kept coming up to me after you left, and telling me how much they liked you. I didn't want that. I knew that you were well liked. But people coming up to me and reminding me of all the things you did, made me love you even more. And miss you even more."

Now it was Phil's turn to look surprised.

"What?" Keely asked, oblivious to the fact that she had done the same thing Phil had.

Phil smiled. "So, you love me too?"

"When did I say that?" Keely asked.

Phil rolled his eyes. "Keely, Keely, Keely..."

"Don't you triple Keely me!" Keely cried.

Phil smiled. "That's my Keely back. The Keely who has a smile on her face, and laughs all the time. And can't remember the last words that came out of her mouth!"

So the story goes

Yeah

You already know

So don't be a fool

And go spoil the ending

"Okay, so I said I loved you. I did. I do," Keely said, looking Phil in the eye.

Phil looked sincere. "Good. Because I do too."

"That's good to know," Keely smiled. "Hey, you never answered my question. What are you doing here"

Phil grinned. "We went back to 2123. And mom decided we needed another vacation. Probably because I was missing you too much. Anyway, the time machine broke down, just as we were coming into 2007 to refuel."

"It's fate," Keely smiled.

Phil shook his head. "No. it's Curtis breaking the time machine. But dad said, he can't fix it again. So, I guess, I'm here to stay."

"So you have all the time in the world," Keely smiled shyly, as the music from the gym wafted out into the gardens.

Phil nodded. "You wanna dance with me Keels?"

"There's nothing I'd like more," Keely smiled.

I never want to be without you

Oh no, here I go

Now you know

What I feel about you

There's no running

I must have been wrong to doubt you

Oh no there I go

No control

And I'm fallen

So now you know


I'm a bit obsessed with the Hilary Duff songs. So sue me. They just seemed to fit.

That's the end. I was going to leave it at the end of the last chapter, but my fingers just wanted to type more, so you have the last chapter as a nice chapter. Not that the last one wasn't nice.

I don't own any of the POTF characters, although I would love to know where Keely got some of her outfits, becasue they rock!
