A/N: So much thanks to everyone who reads, reviews, and for sticking with me over my long absence! I am so, so, so, so, SO incredibly sorry for the incredibly long wait! I was busy with school because apparently the end of the year to my teachers meant kill the students with projects and homework and tests and so on. Fortunately, it's now summer and I've managed to stop procrastinating and being lazy and get this up. So, enough of my babbling! This is the FINAL chapter! Enjoy, thanks again, and sorry again for the wait! Onto my oh-so fabulous reviewers!

larabaybee – No, there's no sequel. However I do still have The Game of Love and I have other stories I'd like to write. I love Logan's keeping score too. He does act like Chase a bit.

Thanks for reviewing!

Disclaimer: I don't own Zoey 101 or any of the characters, except Pierre, Aaron Emerson, Monica Riley, and any other characters who obviously don't appear in the show (I'm too lazy to find all of their names).
She just said she didn't. What the heck? "You didn't what?" I ask. I have to check. She's lying. What is going on?
"I didn't marry Pierre," she whispers.
She…what? "Then who did you marry?" I exclaim.
"No one!" she shouts.
I'm frozen. I can't move. Wait. Is she…not married? I don't get this. I don't get it at all. "Are you married or not?" I question. This is so confusing.
"I'm not," she confesses. Oh my God. "I lied. When I found out about the reunion, I just knew you'd be there. And I was afraid of what would happen. I missed you every moment of these past nine years too, Logan. I was afraid you wouldn't have though. I mean, you never actually had a girlfriend while I was there."
"Because I wanted to date you!" I interrupt.
She smiles. "I hadn't talked to you in nine years, so I had no idea what would happen," she continues. "I panicked, and called Pierre – my best friend in France. He's married, but not to me. That ring I had was his wedding ring. That's why he'd have killed me if I lost it. I was freaking out so I got him to lend me his wedding ring so I could pretend I was married. Then you asked who I was married to, so I just said him since he was the first person to come to mind. And then you had to ask when I got married and why I didn't tell anyone. I've been lying this whole time. I'm not married. You're not too late. But I wasn't lying when I said I loved you and that I am the same Dana Cruz."
I smiled at her. The score is changed again. Pierre, Dana's best friend. Logan, luckiest person ever. Now that she's definitely not married, I lean in to kiss her. I stop just inches away from her lips though. I have to. "Wanna make out?" I tease.
She rolls her eyes. "Shut up," she retorts.
Just like old times. Well, not exactly. I lean in the rest of the way and kiss her. Now we can finally make out.
It's been five years now since that reunion. After making out on the bench for a while, Dana and I drove back to PCA. At 3 AM, I snuck back out and bought the best diamond ring money can buy. Just like I told her in the restaurant, that's what she deserves. The next day at breakfast she told everyone that she wasn't married. Then I proposed to her. She said yes. After the reunion, she flew back to France, got her stuff, then moved in with me. One month later, we all met up again at Nicole and Aaron's wedding. One and a half months after that, Michael and Monica announced they were engaged. One month after that, Dana and I got married. Two months later, Michael and Monica got married. Half a month later, Zoey had her baby. A girl. They named her Angela. She's now almost five years old.
Nicole was the next pregnant one and she and Aaron now have a daughter named Rhiannon. She's a little over four years old. They also have another girl, Kelsey, who's about 2 ½ years old. Michael and Monica have a 2 year old son named Jordan and a 4 month old baby girl named Rachel. Zoey and Chase have more kids too. They have another daughter, Britney, who's a little over 3 years old. Also, they have twins – a son named Brian and a daughter named Rebecca, both 1 ½ years old. And the former goody-goody is now 3 months pregnant again for the reunion.
That's right. It's been five years since that reunion. Dana and I just got back from dinner with Zoey and Chase. Dean Matthews has planned a ten year reunion now. As much as Dana and I both think it's annoying and stupid (considering we see Zoey and Chase almost on a daily basis, usually see Nicole and Aaron every other week, and see Michael and Monica at least once a month), we agreed to going. One, because we knew Mrs. Bossy-And-Pregnant would force us into it anyway, and two, because it brings back good memories.
Dana and I have had a busy five years too. We have a 4 year old son. His name is Pierre, after Dana's best friend in France and the guy who, in a sense, finally got us together. He came down to visit us while Dana was pregnant. He's a pretty cool guy. We also have a daughter, Lucy, who's almost 3 years old and another son, Roger, who's 1 ½ years old. Plus, I think Dana might be pregnant again. I'm not sure, but she's been really moody lately. And she's been eating a lot more. I think Zoey and Chase think so too. After the dinner, I'm pretty sure I saw Zoey glance at Dana's stomach. Zoey, of all people, should be able to tell when someone's pregnant.
Lucy just ran into the room. I pick her up and put her on my lap. "Hey sweetie," I greet. "What's up?"
"What's a reunion?" she asks.
I smile. "Did Mommy mention something about a reunion?" I question.
She nods. "She said something about Auntie Zoey forcing you guys to a reunion. Is a reunion bad? Are you guys gonna be ok?" she quizzes, worried.
I laugh. "Don't worry, Luce. A reunion is just where you see old friends from school that you haven't seen in a while," I explain.
"Then do I have reunions after the weekend?" she wonders.
I smile. She's so adorable. She has her mother's beautiful eyes. "Not quite. Reunions are after years of not seeing the people," I tell her.
"What are you two up to?" Dana teases, suddenly standing in the doorway.
"Daddy's telling me about reunions!" Lucy announces happily.
Dana smiles at me and I smile back. "It's late, Luce. Go get Pierre and the two of you get ready for bed," I instruct her.
She nods her head. "Ok, Daddy! Goodnight!" she exclaims. She kisses me on the cheek. She runs over to Dana. Dana bends down and Lucy kisses her on the cheek too then runs out of the room.
Dana closes the door. She comes over and sits next to me on the bed. "Long dinner," she comments.
I put my arm around her. "We survived. Always have, hopefully always will," I declare.
Dana laughs and leans her head against my shoulder. She sighs and slowly lifts her head up again. She turns towards me so I turn towards her too. "I think I might be pregnant again," she blurts out.
I smile. "I thought so. And I think Zoey thought so too," I inform her.
She shakes her head and laughs. I lean in and kiss her. She kisses me back. She's pulling away. The kids. They're great, but they really cut down the make out time. "Come on," she orders. "Let's get them all to bed. Maybe then we can have some fun before I'm too pregnant to move."
I smirk and follow her out of the room. We go into Pierre's room. He's already in his bed, waiting for us to come say goodnight. "Did you brush your teeth?" Dana checks.
He flashes us a smile. "Night kiddo," I declare.
"Night Dad!" he replies.
Dana kisses his forehead and he shoos her away. She rolls her eyes and turns off the light. Next we go into Lucy's room. "Mommy, will you tell me a story?" she begs.
Pierre might think he's "all grown up" but Lucy enjoys being young. "A quick one," Dana gives in.
"Tell me the story of how you and Daddy met!" she suggests.
Dana laughs. "You sure? You've heard the story hundreds of times," she reminds Lucy.
"Please? I love that story!" she informs us.
"Alright. So, once upon a time, there was a boarding school called Pacific Coast Academy. Daddy went there. It used to be a school for only boys, but one year they decided to finally let girls go there too. That's when I went there. I shared a room with Auntie Zoey and Auntie Nicole. When Auntie Zoey got to the school, she met Uncle Chase. They became friends quickly. Through them, Daddy and I met. Now, we didn't get along at first. Or that's what everyone thought. We were always arguing and being mean to each other. Secretly though, we always liked each other. But then at the end of the year, right before summer, I told Daddy that I wasn't coming back. I was going to school in France. Daddy was sad and so was I, but I went to France. I didn't come back until the reunion. While we were there, Daddy convinced me that we should be together, so we got married. Then Pierre came along, then you, and then Roger. And we all live happily ever after. The end," she concludes.
I smile. "Goodnight, Luce."
"Goodnight sweetheart," Dana declares, kissing Lucy on the forehead.
I turn off the light and we leave the room. Two kids down, one to go. We go into Roger's room. He's fast asleep. Dana and I each give him a kiss goodnight, then carefully tiptoe out of the room.
We go back into our room. I close the door and kiss her. Sure I had to wait nine years to just see her. Sure I beat myself up over blowing my one shot for those nine years. Sure she lied and said she was married at first. Sure I thought I was too late. Sure I missed her every second of those nine years. Sure I thought of her every second of those nine years. We had to go through so much, but we're so happy now. I don't have any regrets anymore. I don't even regret blowing my one shot. Who knows if things would've turned out as good if I hadn't? I'm glad now that things happened the way they did. But most of all, I'm just glad she believed in second chances.
A/N: The end. Everyone lived happily ever after. So, that's the end of that story, but The Game of Love is still going and I hope to be posting the next chapter of that soon. Also, I have other story ideas I'd like to work on at some point. I hope you all enjoyed this story! Thank you for reading, reviewing, and sticking with me! Have a great summer! Bye!
