I'm here with the last chapter! I won't have the big message at the beginning, maybe at the end, maybe not at all. And, if you have ANY questions, ask away. Oh, and this chapter may be shorter, after all, it is the last chapter. I have a habit, I can't stop listening to the Lion King songs and watching it! I was JUST about to turn the computer off and then I remebered OMG, I HAVEN'T UPDATED LAL! So, lucky you, I remembered..

Disclaimer: I don't own Danny Phantom, this is making me cry.

Living A Lie

Chapter 10 – I'm In My Bed? I'm Alive?

I heard whispering all around me. I opened my eyes slowly to see that everything was blurred. It took a while for things to get clearer and when they did, I saw Sam, Tucker, Jazz, Valerie, Dani, mum and dad sitting around my bed.

"What… what happened?" I asked weakly.

They only just noticed that I was awake. Mum flung her arms around me and Sam and Tucker smiled. Jazz looked at me and put a hand on my shoulder while dad brought a chair up to my bed for him to sit on. Valerie just looked at me, not sure what to feel.

"I'm so happy you're awake and alive!" mum cried with joy.

"Why wouldn't I be awake and alive?" I asked.

"You gave us such a scare." Jazz added.

"What happened when I… when I lost consciousness?" I asked.

Sam sighed. "Well, everyone was surprised that you were the ghost boy. Umm, Tucker, Dani, Jazz, Mr Fenton, Mrs Fenton and I went to see if you were okay. Then we took you home and it has been three hours since you collapsed. Oh, and your evil, jerky, future self is safe with Clockwork." Sam explained to me.

I looked at Valerie who was looking at her feet, still shocked at what she had discovered.

"We better give you two some time to work this out." mum said.

Everyone walked out of the room except for Valerie and I. she finally looked up at me, not knowing what to say so, I swallowed and talked first.

"Valerie, I'm sorry." I told her.

"No, I'm sorry; I always attacked first and never listened until I got to know you." She told me.

"Yes but, you thought I destroyed your house, you have a reason to be angry at me. I am sorry for blaming you about everyone finding out about Dani, it really was the kid that you said it was, he told me." I admitted.

"I just… I don't know how to react. I like you, it's just… wow, I can't imagine you being any half ghost, let alone Danny Phantom." Valerie told me.

"Just do what your heart tells you to do, I will understand." I advised.

Valerie looked at me. She closed her eyes for a second and opened them again. She leant down and kissed me on the lips. I was shocked for a second, but returned the kiss the next.

"I like you Danny, I think I even love you but, I don't want to say anything I'm not sure of." She told me as she pulled away.

"I like you too, a lot." I told her.

I heard knocking on the door and Valerie jumped back into her seat. "Come in," I said.

The two people I LEAST expected to see entered the room. I looked at Dash and Paulina's faces carefully, seeing that they weren't smiling or weren't unhappy.

"Listen, I want to say that I'm sorry for beating you up when you had other things to do. You could've beaten me up worse than you already did but you didn't, I'm sorry." Dash apologised.

"Paulina Fenton, I can imagine that." Paulina chirped.

"Umm, I don't like you Paulina." I told her.

Paulina looked heart broken and I continued to talk. "Yeah, I could've beaten you up but I didn't."

"Well, that's all I came here to say. Oh, and you are an awesome ghost… half ghost… whatever you are." Dash said.

"Halfa." I told him.

"Bye Danny." Said Paulina.

The two walked out of my room and I looked to Valerie who was just as shocked as I was. I had experienced something like this before but it was just a bit different. I knew that Paulina just wanted to get with Danny Phantom; she never liked me BEFORE she found out that I was half ghost and was Danny Phantom.

I expected my secret to be on the news by now, it was pretty big. I just hoped the guys in white didn't arrest me or bring me in for testing. After all, I did return Freakshow and they seemed to warm up to me a little.

Another knock was heard on my door and I told the person to come in. I was shocked to see one of my teachers, Mr Lancer, standing in the doorway. He walked into my room and stood near the bed.

"Danny, I just want to apologise for giving you so much detention when you were… out. I just want you to know that school work is more important and you should leave the… hunting to the experts." Mr Lancer told me.

"Uh, thanks, I think." I said.

"And if you ever need someone to talk to, my door is always open… well, it might be closed but you just need to knock." Mr Lancer told me.

"I will keep that in mind." I told him.

"Well, bye Danny, don't be late tomorrow." He told me.

Once he left the room I groaned and looked at Valerie. "I have to go to school tomorrow?"

She chuckled and I got out of bed.

"I think I better be going now, my dad wants me to be home by five tonight." Valerie told me.

"Alright, have fun Valerie," I told her as I gave her a kiss. "My special Valerie."

She laughed. "Yeah, special, very! Have a good night Danny, get some sleep." she told me and walked out of my house and towards her own.

I walked downstairs and joined my family downstairs on the couch. I remembered how Dani had said that she was going to leave on Tuesday. I turned to face her.

"Dani, I wouldn't have been able to do that without you, I don't think I will ever be able to live without you." I told her.

"I don't think I would be able to live without you either." She told me.

"So you will stay?" I asked.

"If everyone else wants me here." She said.

I turned to mum, dad and Jazz who were listening to our conversation.

"Of course we do sweetie, we love you." Mum told her.

"All of us." Jazz added.

"You are better than fudge." Dad said.

"Then I'll stay." She said.

"Danny, I know what I'm about to say is true, so I am about to say it…. Danny, I love you." Valerie told me.

"I love you too Valerie." I told her.

The End

Wow, it all worked out PERFECTLY! –Sigh – I am finished another story, isn't that a jolly good thing:D I hope you did enjoy reading this, I know the last chapter was VERY short but, I decided to make it short….
