Saturday, the Homecoming Dance.

That evening, the once weary ghost hunters had gotten a good long rest as they all came to the school. It was the night of the Homecoming dance and the dance was to be held in the Gym. Yet, one person wasn't there yet.

Neither was Ant, or whoever he was pretending to be.

Desmond's party came in a limo. Although the other groups were surprised that came in since it wasn't even the prom. What was worse was the group that came out were wearing tuxes and very ornate dresses.

Desmond was wearing a tux with a purple tie and sash as he walked with his date, a woman who was petite, wearing a long black dress and had grey skin with violet eyes and soft red hair that went down to just about below her neck.

Ichigo came in next wearing a standard tux with a red rose on his right breast as he escorted out Rukia, who looked absolutely stunning in a sapphire blue dress that hung form one shoulder.

Before they went to the school, Ichigo nearly lost his footing, not to mention was starting to get a nosebleed. Rukia looked so beautiful (and sexy) to him that he nearly had to run to his room to prevent her from seeing his nosebleed.

The next two that came out were Danny and Sam. Danny wore a tux with a dark green tie as a red rose was on his lapel pocket. Sam was wearing something very familiar to Danny. She was wearing the same dress that she wore a while back. She was practically glowing now, despite the fact that she was wearing a dress she had once wore.

The next two that came out were Ryan and a woman that looked strangely familiar. He wore a tux with a purple bow tie. His date had her hair down in a ponytail. Her long hair was as red as a hot flame with sapphire eyes that flashed with their own inner fire. Her dress was a lime green that hung on her shoulders by spaghetti strings.

The next, and final, pair to come out was Valerie who was in a beautiful orange halter dress, followed by Tucker, who wore his tux only with his favorite hat on as well.

"Has anyone seen Mr. Earp or Mr. McCrown yet?" Danny asked them although knowing fully well that they were one and the same.

"According to my memory banks he's going do something special for you guys tonight," Desmond's date told them with a deadpanned voice.

"I really hope that guy doesn't pull anything funny," Ichigo growled as he walked with Rukia.

"Just calm down Ichigo," Rukia told him as she patted his arm.

"I'm just worried that he's going to take you away," Ichigo muttered as he looked away, a faint blush on his cheeks.

"If he does then you just have to beat him so hard that he cries to his mother," Rukia said, pulling him towards her face as he chuckled.

"Yeah I guess I can do that much." Ichigo turned to her with a small smirk as they continued to walk.

They soon all entered the gym that had a stage set up with a DJ table. All the students were conversing with each other.

"You know who's supposed to be playing tonight, right?" Danny asked Desmond with an eyebrow cocked.

"I thought Smart Brain Corporation would supply the entertainment, but like what happened with the new wing and repairs…We were beaten to it." Desmond hissed as he suggested who might have beaten his company.

"Who exactly beat Smart Brain to it?" Sam asked with a curious face on. "My parents wouldn't have done this."

"The company is called Delta Construction Company, a part of Delta Enterprises," Desmond told them as he relaxed a little and quickly calmed himself.

"Hey!" The form of Peter Earp wearing a Looney Toons tie and a white shirt approached them in a half jog.

"Mr. Earp where is Mr. McCrown?" Desmond inquired with his foot tapping. He was giving Mr. Earp a venomous glare.

"Besides getting lost on the walk of life, Mr. Crown has respectfully requested that you pay attention to the stage," Mr. Earp told the group before going back to his monitoring duty. He then paused and turned to say to them. "Oh, before I forget, I apologize for my company for muscling in on you guys. But, let me remind you of two things; 1: you guys hardly have any competition besides Lex Corp, Wayne Enterprises and Microsoft…and we need the public face to say that we're a normal super company."

"Ok…I can see, but why do it at all?" Desmond asked him. "Why put up such a farce?"

"Didn't you hear a word that I just said from my mouth?" Mr. Earp told him shaking his head. "Geeze…I wish that I could say more but that's all my programming allowed me to tell you guys."

"You're a hologram aren't you?" Desmond realized as he looked at Mr. Earp. He and the others had sorta figured it out when he said 'programming'.

"Yes…" Mr. Earp told him with a sigh as he then grumbled and walked away. "Stupid power reading auras. Ngh."

"What did he mean by looking to the stage?" Tucker asked as Mr. Lancer took the stage as he looked to the students.

He still wore that horrendous Tie and blue short sleeved shirt. "Well hello students and welcome to this year's Homecoming dance as we celebrate our win against those Lakeland Lakers of LaGrange!"

That got whoops and hollers, especially from the smaller group who was out in Winsconsin at the time.

"And without further ado….I would like to welcome…The ROCKIN' ROBINS!" He said aloud as a group of eight people dressed in black suits, ties, sunglasses and fedoras walked in and took their places where their instruments were. Soft jazz music began to emanate from the speakers as the band took their place. They looked like jazz musicians, or the Blues Brothers. They were made up of four men and four women. One was a redhead with shoulder length hair, another with brown hair that seemed to be tucked up, another with dreadlocks, another with a black ponytail, another with untamed black hair, another with long blonde hair, one with short blonde hair and one with curly black hair.

The music stopped as the group took their instruments up the stage, took off their fedoras and sunglasses, revealing who they were. This caused Ichigo to groan.

"What's this all about?" Rukia asked him with an amused smirk.

"He was singing off key when we were going out to the forest to stop those Hollows," Ichigo told her just praying that Ant wasn't going to sing and instead play some instrumentals.

"He can't be that bad," Rukia told him as he plugged his ears with his fingers already.

About then Ant who was the front man put on his guitar as the others in his group took a hold of their instruments. The large African American with the dreadlocks started with what sounded like. "WO WO!"

The one on the keyboard started to play a few notes till the sound came again. He repeated the few notes over and over. Ant was beginning to sing some of the lyrics.

This ain't a song for the broken-hearted
No silent prayer for the faith-departed

Everyone started to feel the electricity of the music as the song soon gotten to the lyrics and the lead didn't sound like he was a strangled cat.

The crowd then began to dance a little to the music in a slow fashion.

Rukia pulled herself closer to Ichigo who was holding his fingers in his ears and put her arms around his neck and kissed him little.

I ain't gonna be just a face in the crowd
You're gonna hear my voice
When I shout it out loud

The kiss sent so many neurons and nerves firing through Ichigo's body that he instantly went on autopilot and immediately went along for the ride as the kiss deepened with both their tongues massaging each other slowly.

The others ignored it as the two resident Shinigami broke away and smiled a little sheepishly as they started to dance.

The drummer with slate black hair in a pony tail and violet eyes slammed his drumsticks into the drums as they started into the chorus that the other band members started with their instruments.

It's my life
It's now or never

Desmond saw Paulina coming towards him so he took his Holo date and started dancing with her with the others.

Paulina did see the action. She fumed for a moment but then saw this stud with the blonde hair in crew cut with a Letterman jacket on.

I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)

The lead man sang as the rest of the band provided the chorus.

Both Sam and Danny were entertained by it as they danced to the haunting tune of it.

The two animals on the scene were Ryan and his date Amber who were making all the moves that made most of the jocks in the room feel a little inadequate as they both couldn't get their hands off each other.

"I got to thank Smart Brain for having those connections. This Gigai has brought out the old me. Well the one that was alive anyway." Amber, as if you haven't guessed it, was Ember who looked really hot in her new artificial body.

"I should give him a fruit basket after this," Ryan told her as he kissed her neck.

"Getting fresh already and I haven't even found where you live at."

My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just wanna live while I'm alive
It's my life

The band slowed down and went back to the same tempo and melody before it went into the refrain.

This is for the ones who stood their ground
For Tommy and Gina who never backed down

Sam and Danny had been dancing and holding each other close. They whispered something to each other that no one, except those close enough or with acute hearing, could make out.

Desmond chuckled at the sight of it as he danced with his own partner.

"What's so funny?" his date asked dryly.

Tomorrow's getting harder make no mistake
Luck ain't even lucky
Got to make your own breaks

"I just wish I could find someone like they have." Desmond told her.

"Maybe you will." She told him as she dance with him more closely.

It's my life
And it's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive
'Cause it's my life

The song then went into a small musical interlude as the blonde with the crew cut started to play a small solo.

The gym then stopped as Ant picked up the mic letting his guitar hang loosely at his side.

Better stand tall when they're calling you out
Don't bend, don't break, baby, don't back down

Then he lend out his and to stop the others playing as he motioned to the crowd to sing this part.

It's my life
And it's now or never
'Cause I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive

The band resumed their playing and sang altogether one last time…

It's my life
And it's now or never
'Cause I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive
'Cause it's my life!

The crowd then cheered as the band members congratulated themselves. Ant then raised his hand in a gesture for a little bit more quiet so he could speak.

"Hello Casper High and Congrats!" He yelled to the crowd as they responded in turn with a great fervor then he raised his hands again to quiet down the crowd. "Anyway I need a few volunteers for the next song as it is a slow one and I'm thinking of your very own Desmond Amakusa and Ryan Kazama to come to the stage."

The Knight and Vizard looked at each other as they went towards the stage with a small scowl forming on Desmond's face as he walked up to Ant. Ryan seemed to be on cloud nine. (Wonder why?)

"Alright, what do you want?" Desmond hissed at Ant that Ant visibly flinched a little.

Ant put his and over the mic and asked the two: "Do you two know 'All for Love'?"

"Huh?" Desmond asked, stupefied at such a suggestion.

"I know it," Ryan told him with a smile on his face.

"Sarah, give him your guitar for right now…I'll join you soon on the dance floor in a little bit," Ant told the redhead who he then turned to peck a little on her cheek.

"Certainly," she told him with a smirk and her British accent.

"I want the three of us to sing this song ok?" Ant told Desmond after Sarah gave Ryan her bass.

"Ok I know it," Desmond told him, surrendering

"Nice and here's a piece of advice don't ever give up alright?" Ant told him as he gestured to the large blonde man with the crew cut hairstyle with another electric guitar. "Johnny, please give your guitar to Desmond now."

"Fine," Johnny told him as he gave it to Desmond. "Don't worry he annoys me too."

Desmond rolled his eyes, "Glad to know someone who shares the same feeling."

Ant asked the two, "Okay, you two ready?"

"Ready," Ryan smiled.

"Whatever…" Desmond said.

"Alright, everyone, this particular song is one that is very heartfelt and it's one of my favorites," Ant said as he cued the chocolate skinned female to start with a soft melody as the drummer started with his part.

The guys on guitars started to play as Ant cued Ryan to start off.

When it's love you give

Then he let Desmond have the next line.

(I'll be a man of good faith.)

Ryan then sang the next line.

Then in love you live.

Then they alternated once again.

(I'll make a stand. I won't break.)

Now they all sang together in harmony.

The couples all got together as they felt that it was for the slow dance.

I'll be the rock you can build on,
Be there when you're old,
To have and to hold.

Then he motioned for Desmond to take up the next line as he took the second and forth of the stanza.

When there's love inside
(I swear I'll always be strong.)
Then there's a reason why.
(I'll prove to you we belong.)

Then they regrouped together as they sang the next one as they resumed alternating between the last two lines.

I'll be the wall that protects you
From the wind and the rain,
From the hurt and pain.

This is when the drummer and the rest of the band took up their parts in the refrain. The person at the DJ table put on the fog machine and turned on the red lights that gave the trio a soft hue.

Then Ant took up the first few words as he was followed by Desmond for a few words as Ryan jumped in at the last few and sang out the third line.

Let's make it all for one and all for love.
Let the one you hold be the one you want,
The one you need,
'Cause when it's all for one it's one for all.
When there's someone that should know
Then just let your feelings show
And make it all for one and all for love.

As things settled in the music part…Danny and Sam held each other very close.

"You know Sam…I thought that I almost lost you when you got captured," Danny told her.

"Come off it Danny. We're here and Vlad will be thinking twice before coming back," Sam told him with a smile.

"Why? I mean that…" Danny was going to say before he was pulled into a deep kiss.

"Because you are my boyfriend Danny and you would kill about anyone who would dare harm me," Sam told him looking deeply into his eyes. She had admitted that Danny was her boyfriend. Desmond saw this and smiled


"I truly love you, Sam," Danny told her as he kissed her.

The next verse started with Ant singing the first line and Ryan singing the alternate line as they all collaborated on the fifth and Ryan then taking the sixth with Ant singing the last line.

When it's love you make
(I'll be the fire in your night.)
Then it's love you take.
(I will defend, I will fight.)
I'll be there when you need me.
When honor's at stake,
This vow I will make

Then with Ryan starting the line with Desmond continuing and Ant for the ending sang the refrain.

That it's all for one and all for love.
Let the one be the one you want,
The one you need,
'Cause when it's all for one it's one for all.
When there's someone that should know
Then just let your feelings show
And make it all for one and all for love.

Then the music continued with the next stanza. As that was happening both Amber and Sarah started girl-talking.

"So when did you first notice that you loved someone?" Amber asked Sarah while they were on a couple of seats watching the boys sing.

"It was thirteen years ago when this boy with a cast on his left arm and an eye patch on his left eye," Sarah reminisced looking to the ceiling of the gym. "He was a little foolish and wanted nothing more but to go out and see if he could make his dead parents proud of him."

"What happened to them?" Amber asked her.

"They were murdered as he couldn't do anything," Sarah replied with a tear in her eye.


"Ouch indeed, not to mention he had to say good bye to his girlfriend who was holding a monster for him to get a clear shot at it," Sarah told her with her head down low.

"Double ouch…Wait a minute…his left arm?" Amber said then asked as she noted that Ant's left arm came off during the fight with the Arrancars.

"Yes his arm was cut off initially and nearly destroyed during the fighting against a Company of Soul Demons and their leaders the lead Soul Demon, Kyubbi and the Crane."

"Now I feel real bad for him as I only knew that asshole of a manager."

"Don't feel bad …sometimes God gives us all a few lessons to live by," Sarah told her as she patted her back.

Don't lay our love to rest
'Cause we could stand up to your test.
We got everything and more than we had planned,
More than the rivers that run the land.
We've got it all in our hands

Then Ryan took off with great guitar solo that was out done by Desmond who was both done in as Ant gave them the message, 'Play nice boys', did his own. Then it all went back as they all sang the last few lines but ended with Ant singing the first par of the last line with all of them finishing behind him.

Now it's all for one and all for love.
(It's all for love.)
Let the one you hold be the one you want,
The one you need,
'Cause when it's all for one it's one for all.
(It's one for all.)
When there's someone that should know
Then just let your feelings show.
When there's someone that you want,
When there's someone that you need
Let's make it all, all for one and all for love.

The crowd then applauded at the three as Ant waved them off and motioned for Sarah and Johnny to get back to the stage but not take up their instruments.

"Thank you for the moment folks but me and my band would like to take a break for a few moments so that we can recharge for a moment," Ant told them as he took put down his guitar.

After that statement Ant and his band went down on to the floor as he promptly sat down somewhere comfortable.

"Oh holy mother of god…" Ant said aloud as he flopped on the seat.

"What's the matter here?" Desmond said as he walked up to Ant.

"I guess you never put your heart and soul into anything like that?" Ant told him as he took out bottle of water out of his blazer and took a few sips.

"What do you mean by that?"

"My mom told me when you play a song…in order to play it in which people would say it's damn awesome you put your heart and soul to it and make your instrument sound excellent. I was making you two guys' instruments sound great at how much I put into each note," He said while taking his left arm and wiping across his forehead.

"Yeah right," Desmond dismissed, even though it was highly possible.

"I'm serious and you were too busy making sure that you were playing the piece right," Ant told him, taking another sip. "If you want to see that... Call in the Mutt and Dragon and we'll have ourselves a little battle of the bands."

"Winner gets to play here next year at their next homecoming?" Desmond's eyes narrowed.

"No…One takes lessons from the other," Ant told him simply as he stood up. "Your friends should be here any moment as they were finished with their business in New York, Orchid Bay and Tremorton…I'll be walking around for a little bit."

"We shall see who's the better of the two."

A Few minutes Latar…(A/N: Stuffs French Narrator into a Garbage Disposal You didn't see anything.)

Leo, Tazuka and Takada arrived after getting their tuxes and heading to Casper High without dates. They walked in a little hurriedly as they met up with Desmond.

"What's up Desmond? Last we heard you were doing alright alone here," Leo told him as he flicked his hair a little. Leo was a medium sized man with braided auburn hair and green eyes as he noticed that something was amiss.

"You sounded urgent," added the clairvoyant Knight of Pisces, Tazuka. His short black hair was neatly combed. His brown eyes seemed passive as he flipped a coin.

"And you had your deck stolen and had to follow his lead," chuckled Takada.

"Watch it, mutt, or else I'll have you dropped off in Seacouver and tell the Headhunters to come after your head," Desmond hissed as he gestured to the band that was remounting the stage. "That is our target in a little 'Battle of the Bands' contest. I'm telling you he's ruthless and clever. He would stop at nothing to see that we are made to look like fools."

"Uh…Desmond you need to calm down now," Leo told him as he was surprised how angry his usually cool friend was and how things were ironic for himself to be the cool one in this.

"Why's that?" Desmond asked

"He's right behind you," Tazuka pointed. Takada laughed as he was rolling on the floor.

Desmond visibly straightened in that statement as he turned around and saw Ant with a grin and a waving his hand.


"Hi yourself," Leo told him as he saw almost the same hair.

"Well anyway…already chosen your song yet, boys?" Ant asked them as he got them into a huddle.

"No we haven't," Desmond told him with another hiss.

"Seriously, I want you guys to perform first…I can't see you guys and see where you are at least after you play," Ant told them after seeing them and leaving them to huddle.

"So is that the guy who had to get 'Citybuster level authorization approval'?" Tazuka asked about him.

"Yes, I'm afraid so," Desmond told his compatriot.

"I don't know about you but he seems ok," Leo offered as was grabbed by his collar and lifted up.

"I may respect your opinion but I really don't like him," Desmond told him straight up.

"He was that way towards me the first time I met him."

The quartet then turned to face him as the saw a large man again with the blonde crew cut and brown eyes.

"Why hello Johnny-san," Desmond told him as he backed off visibly a little bit.

"Nice to actually meet the guys that Ant was to watch over for a moment," Johnny told them as he pocketed his hands. "Now, I know my commander isn't the most pleasant guy to have around but he did mean what he said about losing someone back when he started."

"And pray tell who might that be?" Desmond asked him.

"On a mission he was forced to shoot a guy who would remove all humans on a planet if he didn't shoot him then. Another problem was that the target would anticipate when he was going to shoot and deflect his bullets. That was then that his girlfriend at the time grabbed the bastard and had him in an full nelson and told him to shoot…Ant needed to use his best attack which was the 'Citybuster' level and shot him. The explosion hit as Ant was blown back by the shockwave of the blast and was rescued, but the damage was done as he left the Dragon Force temporarily to join the Freelancers for three months. So believe me that he's no rookie," Johnny told him straight up. "I may dislike his attitude but he tries his hardest to put up a façade that he isn't angry or sad that we don't see him lose his self control and see that he finds a way to make sure everyone is happy or that justice is done no matter how it pains his heart."

"How many people died around him?" Desmond asked as he held his head down low.

"His parents, his twin brothers he had to kill, the girlfriend I mentioned and a few more friends," Johnny said darkly. "He told me after this mission he's filing for stationed life on one of our frontier stations where he would monitor the universe and would be a kind of halfway house for those who need to live somewhere or those who are destined to live in interesting times to work at."

"It appears that he never really leaves his job," Desmond mused to himself.

"He really doesn't leave it for a second as he is going to also plan to settle down while he is at it and raise some kids from what he told me," Johnny told him shaking his head. "At least I'm in more of a position to do it as I'm a lawyer in New York City here in this universe."

"So you suggest that we hang out with you?" Desmond asked him.

"Hell no…Ant might welcome it but not me," Johnny told him as he walked back to his friends.

"Apparently, Ant can get to anyone somehow," Takada smiled as he turned towards Desmond, "Even you."

"Mutt, I'm going to rearrange your face!" Desmond hissed at him.

"Apparently he has his secrets to bear," Leo mused for a moment as he smirked at the guy with long corded hair who was drinking the punch.

Desmond, even more mad, grabbed both Leo and Takada by the bowties and walked/dragged them up to Ant and told him: "We'll be doing All American Rejects' Song: Dirty little Secret." Tazuka followed close behind. He was just happy to see them working great together as he felt his time on earth was growning to an end, so he wasn't needed.

"Ok the stage is yours for the moment. So, I'll join you in a bit," Ant told them with a smile as he took down his drink. "What's the song?"

"Dirty Little Secret," Tazuka told him plainly.

"Alright. I'll escort you guys up to the stage then," Ant told them with a smirk as he escorted them all up the stairs and to the stage. Tazuka stayed in the crowd, wanting to see his friends play.

"Alright everyone, welcome back and tonight we'll have ourselves a battle of the bands with the Rockin' Robins in one corner and Your very own Desmond Amakusa's band, The Knights."

The crowd cheered. "Anyway, tonight they'll be performing Dirty Little Secret so I suggest that you get yourselves ready for this Quartet!" Ant told them before jumping off the stage and rejoining Sarah.

"Alright Knights, let's hit it," Desmond said as the band started simultaneously with a rhythm that had a little bit of angst involved. Desmond was on the guitar, Tazuka on Keyboard, Takada on bass and finally Leo on the drums. Desmond then started…

Let me know that I've done wrong

When I've known this all along

I go around a time or two

Then Takada started to sing along with Desmond.

Just to waste my time with you

Tell me all that you've thrown away

Find out games you don't wanna play

You are the only one that needs to know

I'll keep you my dirty little secret

(Dirty little secret)

Don't tell anyone or you'll be just another regret

(Just another regret, hope that you can keep it)

My dirty little secret

Who has to know?

The crowd then began to swing as Ant was analyzing the Knights' power levels and when he was finished he joined his wife as they started to dance to the song.

When we live such fragile lives

It's the best way we survive

I go around a time or two

Just to waste my time with you

Tell me all that you've thrown away

Find out games you don't wanna play

You are the only one that needs to know

Then Leo picked up the tempo while hitting the drumstick on the cymbal.

I'll keep you my dirty little secret

(Dirty little secret)

Don't tell anyone or you'll be just another regret

(Just another regret, hope that you can keep it)

My dirty little secret

Who has to know?

Then the melody changed as Leo continued with now focusing the two drums mounted on the Bass.

The way she feels inside (inside)

Those thoughts I can't deny (deny)

These sleeping dogs won't lie (won't lie)

And all I've tried to hide

It's eating me apart

Trace this line back

I'll keep you my dirty little secret

(Dirty little secret)

Don't tell anyone or you'll be just another regret

(Just another regret)

I'll keep you my dirty little secret

(Dirty little secret)

Don't tell anyone or you'll be just another regret

(Just another regret, hope that you can keep it)

My dirty little secret

Dirty little secret

Dirty little secret

Who has to know?

Who has to know?

The song ended as it faded out suddenly leaving the kids cheering. Ant and his group were clapping with semi small grins that suspiciously looked like evil smiles that put Tazuka into a vision of pure and unadulterated 'Ah Crap'. Tazuka then walked off to meet Desmond before he done something stupid.

As the Knights stepped down the stairs and were met by the Robins who were gathered there.

The black haired one looked to Leo and said. " Not bad on the snare and Cymbals there."

Sarah noticed the perverted look in Takada's eyes as she blushed to distract him while three women proceded to punch him to the ground.

"Ohhh…Someone hopefully better get that guy some Ice." The large muscled African American said as he laughed his head off with his dreadlocks swinging.

"Aparently someone has to be the 'Will Smith' of the group." Tazuka smirked as he crossed his arms.

"You should see him in a 'parody universe' he has to comment on something." Johnny told him.

"Well I hope you guys are ready for your lesson. We all decided to do 'The Heart of Rock and Roll' from Huey Lewis and the News." Ant smiled.

"Wait a minute a big Band ensemble?" Desmond asked as he was shocked.

"Yes and you better be prepared." Ant said with a evil smirk as his band stepped up to the the stage.

"Alright everyone, well be doing an old classic but first…I need to say a small prayer." Ant said as he signaled to the others to get out the Brass and other instruments for this and to put on the hat and sunglasses once more.

Then he went into a prayer likeness as a blue light hit him from the window as he prayed.

Tazuka was given another vision of someone dressed similarly like the Robins but they were only two as he discovered what the light was.

"Desmond I think we were a scotch out of our league here." Tazuka reported as he looked at the light. "He just called Kami and he's given the blessing to kick our musical ass."

Then a Electric Guitar and Drum started off with the Electric Guitar playing one note as the Drummer was using the bass to sound like a heart beat as it soon changed over to some brass and keyboard.

Then Ant Sang out as he grabed the mic stand.

New york, new york, is everything they say
And no place that i'd rather be
Where else can you do a half a million things
All at a quarter to three
When they palt their music, ooh that modern music
They like it with a lot of style
But t's still that same old back beat rhythm
That really drives 'em wild

Then those who had their instruments in their hands now sang out as the Teens had an uncontrollable urge to dance…but it wasn't a bad urge as it felt right. Even the Knights were not immune. They all started dancing to the tune but sadly Tazuka frowned that he wasn't with Eri that night as she was back in Japan. Try as he might he couldn't go away as he was swept into the music.

"Troublesome…Very Troublesome." Desmond said aloud as he couldn't control himself.

To the other couples like Ichigo and Rukia who were treated to dance to being something natural.

"What is this brand of music? It's sounds very happy but not as haunting as their first song?" Rukia comented as she was treated to a throw in the air as she was caught by Ichigo who then proceeded to jump up himself.

"That first song was more for fighting as this one is about having fun and having no cares to speak of.." Ichigo told her as he landed back down surprised there were others joining him in jumping higher than they physically could.

Danny and Sam were enjoying themselves as well as they looked to see both Ryan and Ember tearing it up.

"Horny Kids…" Those two muttered as Danny now embraced his girlfriends lifestyle.

Then the chorus with the lead singing….

They say the heart of rock and roll is still beating
And from what i've seen i believe 'em
Now the old boy may be barely breathing
But the heart of rock and roll is still beating

The Drummer continued as it went into the next verse…

La, hollywood, and the sunset strip
Is something everyone should see
Neon lights and the pretty pretty girls
All dressed so scantily
When they play their music
That hard rock music
They like it with a lot of flash
But it's still that same old back beat rhythm

That really kicks 'em in the

They say the heart of rock and roll is still beating
And from what i've seen i believe 'em
Now the old boy may be barely breathing
But the heart of rock and roll is still beating

Now instead of the original melody it started into another verse…

Dc, san antone and the liberty town, boston and baton rouge
Tulsa, austin, oklahoma city, seattle, san francisco, too
Everywhere there's music, real live music, bands with a million styles
But it's still that some old rock and roll music
That really drives 'em wild

Then it hit the instrumental part as the Brass started to play by them selves aided by the drums. Then came the harmonica played by the African American.

Sadly, that all came to a crashing end as a fiend that looked like he was off to start a small war in Africa arrived by crashing into a window.

"I suggest you mortals all run now." Skulker told them all as he fired before the table where the punch was (although that came as a blessing in disguise as it was spiked by a certain Letterman Jacket wearing punk.) exploded.

The crowd then ran out leaving twenty individuals and out of them only 8 were a little mad.

"Alright Skulker you want a fight you got one with us." Danny cried out as he stepped but was stopped when Skulker fired a blast before he could transform.

"I am not here for you Ghostboy." Skulker stated. "I'am only here for the Vampangel."

"Too bad that won't be happening as you are going to not ever try a stunt like that and actually stay away from them." Ant told him evenly as he looked at Skulker.

"Now why should I do that?"

"For one: There is too many of us here; I mean did you really expect for us to be not prepared for a measly ghost like you?"


"I thought you might have been smarter than that but on to reason two…You didn't know what your enemy is capable of either didn't you?"

"Could you keep it down…"

"No because if anyone is watching they will be handled accordingly by a few friends from New York that my friend," Ant said as he gestured with his head towards Johnny who also smiled at the situation. "Made contact with a agency that specializes in cover ups so you should be safe for now from the big bad and very Incompetent Men in White and as for reason three…Let me show you."

Ant then concentrated a little in to his arm that dropped out a small capsule out as he pressed the button and threw it to a open spot where it exploded as Ant muttered " Thank you Bulma." Where it revealed a trunk.

Ant walked over and opened to reveal what appeared to be back packs of some sort with a shoe box attachment to the straps with a meter of some sort with attenas.

"These here are Proton Packs which powers these rifle like sticks that are attached. These things have been known to take down Apocolypses."

A loud gulp could be heard from Skulker when he heard those words.

"These weapons were initially were intended to be against ghosts amazingly enough so that means…" Ant said as he and his band put on the gear and looked at Skulker. "You have 5 seconds to get back to the Ghost Zone before we haul your ass there."

"Uh can we talk about this?"

"No." Ant said as he started with. " One One thousand."

"This shall not be the last you hear from me." Skulker stated as he soon flew off as Ant and his gang took off after him leaping to the window and clearing it.

"Uh…Amber." Ant said before he left.

"What is it 'Old School'?" Amber stated.

"I suggest that you and Ryan play a small Song to wrap this night up alright and I suggest 'Almost Paradise' if you don't mind?" Ant told her.

"We need a band to play that."

"I thought you had an Entourage for that?"

"Alright but I better get paid." Amber said as she and Ryan went on stage and summoned her band as they started to play a slow song started with the Keyboard which was now played by one of 'Amber's' band along with other spots. Then it slowly began with Ryan starting off singing…

I thought that dreams belonged to other men
'cause each time i got close
They'd fall apart again

Slowly those who had dates (or Holo Dates) started to dance to the tune.

I feared my heart would beat in secrecy
I faced the nights alone

Amber Then started on the song slowly with her guitar. Then they sang the next stanza together.

Oh, how could i have known
That all my life i only needed you?

Then with both guitars going off into a small solos, the song and tempo changed as

the band came together for the first chorus…

Almost paradise
We're knockin' on heaven's door
Almost paradise
How could we ask for more?
I swear that i can see forever in your eyes

It then switched back to it's normal phase as Jack and Maddie stood outside the doors to the gymnasium as they fulfilled they're roles as Chaperones, listening to the song.

"This Ant guy maybe nuts, but he does bring back some memories." Jack sighed.

"Yes dear. Who knew he would know the song we had playing at our wedding?" Maddie looked on in a questioning look.

"That and those anti-ghost weapons that looked like something similar that Professor Spengler had once in college." Jack commented as he tried to remember why his old professor was kicked out of the college.

"Of course they were his inventions and he was always a little more destructive than we were but I didn't think that Venkman was too enthused with the idea."

"On the other hand, we could have ended up with Stantz."

Both visibly shuddered at that name.

It seems like perfect love's so hard to find
I'd almost given up
You must have read my mind

The song was then transferred over to Amber as she walked closer to Ryan. They sang the last parts of the song together.

And all these dreams i saved for a rainy day
They're finally coming true
I'll share them all with you
'cause now we hold the future in our hands

Almost paradise
We're knockin' on heaven's door
Almost paradise
How could we ask for more?
I swear that i can see forever in your eyes

Ichigo turned to Rukia as they were dancing together as he was in a thoughtful mood.

"What's with you, Ichi-kun?" She asked him as they kept each other close.

"I was wondering about your brother," Ichigo admitted.

"What about him?"

"He's the same guy who took you away and your brother," He told her. "Imagine me if someone was trying to date my sisters?"

And in your arms salvation's not so far away
It's getting closer
Closer every day

It's almost paradise
We're knockin' on heaven's door
Almost paradise
How could we ask for more?
I swear that i can see forever in your eyes

Almost paradise
We're knockin' on heaven's door
Almost paradise
How could we ask for more?
I swear that i can see forever in your eyes



Then, at the last moment, both Ryan and Amber kissed each other passionately on the lips as they explored each other deeply, ignoring the others as they either clapped or were in a lip lock sessions themselves.

The End…

Disclaimer: If I dared to even own any of this and laugh at the people who really did…I WOULD BE IN PRISON. Not only that but I think ZK would be as well.

So thanks for your reviews or lack of them and good night and good luck.
