(Hey everyone! So here we go! Last chapter! I am still planning a sequel so I'll be back ASAP with the new story but for now I hope you like my ending – it's taken me ages just to decide what Evie is going to do let alone Johnny and the situation with Julliard! Thanks so much for your great reviews and I hope you enjoy! TKAMB aka Becky!)

Chapter 13:

Evie came out of the dance hall she had just auditioned in and let out a sigh of relief. She had spent nearly and hour auditioning a monologue, a song, and interview and finally a dance. She was so happy with herself as the final spin which she had always fallen over when trying to perform it had actually worked and she made it through the dance without any faults. She let out a small laugh and picked up her bag heading for the bathrooms to change for her date with Will. For her outfit she wore cream summer dress with thin straps that hugged her thin figure and cut off just below the knee. She wore small cream ballet pumps and a simple silver necklace. Her hair hung loose and she smiled as she checked herself over, perfect for her date.

She headed for the back door after changing as the press were going nuts waiting for her to come out. The rest of the gang had wanted to come but due to the press attention they decided not to. Besides Ben wanted to see Alicia and Reed and Sue wanted to spend some private time together.

"Is my car here?" Evie asked a police guard who was on the back door

"Ready when you are Miss Richards" he said and opened the door. The car pulled up as he opened the door and Evie jumped into the back seat.

"Thanks for bringing the car around the back way" she said to the driver in the front seat as she shut her door

"No problem freckles" a familiar voice said making her screech and clutch her chest

"Johnny? What are you doing here?" she asked sitting forward

"Escorting you of course. We are going to have to go through the small roads and such to get away from the press so the journey may be longer then expected" he explained and the car began to move.

"Why? I'm going on my date with Will remember. Why are you here?"

"I had to get out of the Baxter Building. Besides I wanted to talk to you. About us"

"What us?" she asked and he stopped the car in a hidden back road where he knew they wouldn't be disturbed. "Johnny don't do this not now please" Evie said opened the door.

"What are you doing?" Johnny asked getting out of the car as she got out

"I'm walking to go meet Will if that's alright with you" she explained as she began to walk away.

"You can't turn your back on what we have Evie. It isn't fair" Evie stopped and turned around

"Johnny everything is different now! A million girls would want to be with you every night because of who you are. I just want someone to listen to me, tell me what they think of me every now and then. Make me feel special. You have your life; I have mine both of which are completely opposite"

"You know everyday and night all summer I haven't been able to get you off my mind. You have stepped into my life at the perfect moment. Someone to bring me back down to Earth and make me realise who I am. When I told you that having powers was a higher calling and getting girls, I was talking about you. All I want is you"

"Johnny stop I can't do this. I have a date to go to" she said holding up her hands to make him stop

"What does he have that I don't?"

"You don't get it and you never will Johnny. He is one of the smartest charming intelligent kind men I have ever known in my life. At the same time you are the most charming kind sweetest men I have ever known in my life. I can't explain it" Evie said and leant against the car

"Yes you can you just can't admit to yourself what you are dying to say because you're afraid to tell me how you feel. Do you feel anything for me? Do you love me? There is nothing to be afraid of"

"Why would I be afraid Johnny?" she asked and he stepped closer to her

"Because you want to be with me and you are afraid to admit it to yourself. That is why you are going on this date and pushing me as far away as possible. The truth hurts doesn't it?" he saw tears well up in her eyes and he cupped her face. "If my words can't convince you maybe this will" he pulled her into a passionate kiss which she didn't try to break free from and she wrapped her arms around his neck whilst he wrapped his around her waist. After a few moments they parted and he leant his forehead against hers. "Now tell me that isn't what you want" Evie instantly let go of him and he let go of her

"Johnny, I'm still a child of this world. I need to figure things out. Please, go home" she began walking away as rain began to fall

"What about how I feel? Doesn't that matter?" he called after her but she couldn't respond. She carried on walking in the rain and felt tears begin to flow down her cheeks. She made it to the ambulance base, cold and soaking wet from the rain. She approached the main gate but stopped herself. She saw Will inside waiting for her but all she could thing about was Johnny. "God help me" she thought leaning on the gate and covering her face with her hands.

Johnny sat in his room as the rain feel. Reed, Sue and Ben had gone to see Alicia and to find out what would happen to Victor. His eyes were bloodshot and puffy from being upset over Evie. He spent his time sat on his bed, walking around, anything to distract himself. He needed to take his anger out on something so he took a nearby bean toy American football and threw it across the room hitting his mirror. The mirror shattered into hundreds of pieces and he stared at the remains for a moment contemplating what he had done. It was then that a person's figure in the doorway was being reflected in a piece of the mirror glass. Johnny slowly turned around and saw a soaking wet Evie watching him.

"You remember when Will came up to us all and said I promised a date if we bumped into each other in less then a week due to fate?" Johnny nodded and took a step towards her. "I realised that he wasn't the one fate was telling me to go to" she explained and he let out a sigh of relief. He instantly walked towards her and passionately kissed her again. "I guess I'm the child sometimes aren't I?" she asked when they parted and they laughed

"Your shaking" he said and grabbed a blanket from his bed but she shook her head.

"I can think of better ways to warm up! Not in here though because of the glass. I could do with a shower, get out of these wet clothes" she said suggestively and raised an eyebrow making Johnny smile in his charming way. "But first I need to say. I want this to stay between us for now. At least until after I found out about Julliard. We don't know how Reed and Sue will react either so do you mind having this kept between us?" she asked and he smiled softly

"As long as I have you I'll do anything" she smiled and he softly kissed her before she led him to the bathroom making sure they locked the door behind them

---

A week had passed and she still hadn't heard anything from Julliard. She had been told she would hear within a few days via a letter but still she hadn't heard anything. That evening the gang was going to a party being held on a boat to thank them for there work in defeating Victor. The reason why it was a week later was because Evie had caught a cold since becoming human again and they all wanted to go out together. Johnny held up the charade of being single to cover up his and Evie's secret but made sure he never took it too far with any of the girls. Tiffany had come with them as had Alicia who Evie had not met before that night.

"I have to tell you something and I know you are going to go nuts because I hadn't told you when it begun a week ago but I have to tell you now" Evie quickly said alarming Tiffany

"What is it?" she asked and Evie whispered her and Johnny's news in Tiffany's ear. "SHUT UP!" Tiffany yelled stopping everyone's conversations and everyone focused on her. Tiffany smiled broadly. "We're rehearsing a play!" she said and both girls headed for the deck. "I knew something was up with you. I haven't seen you this happy since before graduation"

"I know I can't explain it but we aren't telling any of the gang until after I get my result from Julliard.

"They still haven't responded?" Evie shook her head. "It'll be ok Evie I'm sure" just then Johnny came to the deck

"Hey, I have to quickly fly back to the apartment, do you need anything?" he asked them both and they shook there heads. He kissed her cheek and took off into the night's s sky.

"So you do love him then?" Evie nodded to her friend who broadly smiled. "Well I have to say, it's about time you said it!" Both girls laughed and re entered the boat. The listened as the major gave a speech and applauded when he was done which was just the second that Johnny re appeared on the boat deck.

"Evie it came!" he said running in alerting everyone and he handed her an A4 sized envelope with Julliard School printed at the top.

"So this is it?" Sue asked

"You're going to get in kiddo I can feel it" Ben said

"How could they not take you?" Reed said buy none of there comments got through to Evie, she was too scared to listen to them.

"Oh my God!" she said softly and bit her bottom lip. "You open it Johnny I can't" she explained and he complied. Tiffany took Evie's hands in hers and felt Evie's hands shaking. Johnny cleared his throat and began to read aloud.

"Dear Miss Richards. On behalf of everyone at Julliard School of Dance, Music and Drama we would like to offer our thanks at your attendance of our auditions. As you know the student recruitment standard is very high and places are limited for any one of our three sectors of learning that our students attend at our school. Because of this we regret to inform you that your audition has failed to secure you a place in one of our regular learning schemes that we provide for our students at Julliard" everyone was silent

"I can't believe it" Tiffany said everyone looked at Evie. She closed her eyes and lowered her head to cover up the tears that were forming.

"I guess the dream is over" she said and Tiffany put her arm around Evie's shoulders

"I'm sorry Evie. You know they're idiots" Ben said

"They don't know what they are thinking" Reed said and Sue squeezed his hand.

"However" Johnny said and everyone looked at him. "We have taken into account your application for a scholarship to our school. It is rare when a person auditions who understands everything surround the art in which they are auditioning to a standard the no one can compete with even though they are all at the same level of training. We found our panel of judges from the auditions found you to be the person that stood out most in their memory of all applicants due to your determination, the way you danced and your passion for the dramatic arts. Therefore we are proud to inform you that you have been accepted for a four year scholarship beginning this September to Julliard School in the subjects of Dance and Drama" Johnny said and everyone instantly began to applaud and yell with happiness.

"You did it!" Tiffany said and hugged Evie who had begun to softly cry. Everyone hugged Evie individually but when Johnny hugged her she didn't want to let go.

"I told you you'd be fine didn't I? I'm so proud of you" he said softly making her smile.

"Come on Evie, you have to perform for us now" the Major said and handed her a microphone as Evie dried her cheeks

"No I couldn't" she replied

"EVIE! EVIE! EVIE!" everyone began to chant and Evie walked over to the stage area where the major had made his speech. They had a karaoke machine set up and Tiffany began going through the tracks.

"Thank you everyone, if my voice cracks during the song I apologies I wasn't prepared to sing. If I knew there was a karaoke machine here tonight I assure you I wouldn't have come!" she said and everyone let out a small laugh which comforted her. Tiffany pointed out which song for her to sing and Evie nodded. "Well it's one of my favourite songs as well so hopefully I'll sound ok. If not I'll blame it on the microphone!" everyone laughed again and the music started.

Whistle down the wind
Let your voices carry
Drown out all the rain
Light a patch of darkness
Treacherous and scary

Howl at the stars
Whisper when you're sleeping
I'll be there to hold you
I'll be there to stop
The chills and all the weeping
Make it clear and strong
So the whole night long
Every signal that you send
Until the very end
I will not abandon you
My precious friend

So try and stem the tide
Then you'll raise a banner
Send a flare up in the sky
Try to burn a torch
And try to build a bonfire
Every signal that you send
Until the very end, I'm there
So whistle down the wind
For I have always been right there

Howl at the stars
Whisper when you're sleeping
I'll be there to hold you
I'll be there to stop
The chills and all the weeping
Make it clear and strong
So the whole night long
Every signal that you send
Until the very end
I will not abandon you
My precious friend

So whistle down the wind
Let your voices carry
Drown out all the rain
Light a patch of darkness
Treacherous and scary
Every signal that you send
Until the very end, I'm there

So whistle down the wind
For I have always been right there

"Thank you" Evie said as everyone applauded her and she joined Reed and Ben who were talking.

"You were great kiddo, congratulations" Ben said before hugging her

"You're amazing you know that?" Reed said making her smile. "I need to talk to you guys. I've been looking over the numbers. I think that if we rework the power source for the machine –" Reed began but Ben held up his hands to make him stop

"Forget it egghead. I'm good as is" Ben said

"Better then good Benny" Alicia said approaching the three of them with Sue. Ben brought his glasses to Alicia's but the force of the movement meant Alicia's glass shattered to pieces. "You just need to work on your touch" Alicia commented making Evie smile

"I like the sound of that!" Ben replied and Evie turned to Sue.

"You were great Evie, we are so proud of you" Sue said hugging her

"Thank you, and that's why I can't go into that machine Reed. What kind of a dancer would I be if I still had my powers? And besides I think the Fantastic Four sounds a hell of a lot better the Fantastic Five don't you?"

"Are you sure?" Reed asked

"Do you have to ask?" Evie replied and with a small wink to her brother she walked away looking for Johnny. She soon found him surrounded by a group of girls

"Excuse me ladies" he left the group of girls and followed Evie out onto an area of the deck. He instantly pulled her into a hug

"Can you believe it? I did it! I got in"

"I can believe it! So, I have to know, when can we tell them?" Johnny asked and Evie looked over at Reed and Sue as Reed held out a ring to Sue.

"Tomorrow, this is their night. Let's not spoil it. Come on" they went back into the boat to stand by Ben and Alicia. Evie couldn't help beaming with pride as Sue accepted Reed's proposal.

"Oh look their kissing" Ben said to Alicia making her smile and Evie felt Johnny's warm arm wrap around her waist. "Hey, no more jokes about my size" Ben said to Johnny and Tiffany stood by Evie raising an eyebrow.

"Is that possible?" Tiffany asked making Evie laugh.

"Call me Mr. Sensitive" Johnny said and began to walk through the crowd of people. "Alright people wide load coming through. He's huge!" Johnny said and Ben quickly followed angrily. Everyone followed the two and watched Johnny fly into the sky and making the number 4 in the sky within a circle out of fire. "SHOWOFF!" Ben yelled and everyone smiled

'Yeah, but that's my show off' Evie thought and laughed. Everything was great again and now she was with Mr. Right.
