Here it is, the last chapter. Not too great, I didn't want it to seem short, so I added alot of extra stuff to lengthen it out, bt still, the chapt does it's job.


Goodbye and Farewell

It was a time to celebrate, and Cyberspace took full advantage of it, even if it was short notice. And by the end of the day, the story in short of what had happened had spread. And even though Cyberspace wasn't home free yet, they were going to be, and now a new hope spread over it like never before.

However, there was one matter left to attend to.

"Well, I guess my job here is done." Future Matt announced once the festivities at Control Central had ended.

"So, where are you going to go now?" Inez asked, curious. "Back to the future?" she paused for a moment. "I can't believe I just said that." she said dismayed.

"No, I don't think I can go back to the future now." the time traveler said.

"Why not?" Digit asked. "Why can't you just do the opposite of what you did to get here in the first place? Just add a heat-tant, thing."

"We can't." Marbles interrupted. "The only chemical that would work would be Lynitrogen, and adding it to a portal would be even more dangerous than adding Kryoxide to a portal."

"So I guess I'm stranded here." Future Matt ended. "So I'll have to find some place to stay right here in Cyberspace."

"You could stay here in Control Central." Jackie suggested.

"Can't, that would put too much at risk." the time traveler stated. "Hacker never did figure out just who I am and how I got here, and by staying here, we risk him figuring that out."

"So if you can't stay here, where will you go?" Matt asked.

"Well, I suppose I could go to cybersite Mount Olympus to live." Future Matt guessed. "Always did want to live in ancient Greece. Can you give me a lift there, Motherboard?"

Motherboard nodded, and a moment later, a swirling pink portal formed.

"So I guess it's goodbye now." Future Matt said, looking into the portal. He turned to Jackie. "Bye Jax."

"Goodbye, then." Jackie said. "Thanks for you're help."

"Sure thing." Future Matt said, then turned to Digit.

"Do you have to go?" Digit asked. "I was just getting used to you being here."

"Sorry Didge, can't be here forever." the time traveler said, then patted Digit on the head. "Bye, you tin turkey."

Future Matt turned to Inez.

"Hey, uh, thanks for, well, saving my life." Inez said, nervously

"I'm glad I could make a difference." Future Matt answered. "Of course, Matt helped, so partial credit goes to him."

"Which is you." Inez pointed out good-humorly.

"Don't confuse me." Future Matt requested. He turned to his double. "Be seeing you, friend." He said, holding out his hand for Matt to shake.

"Are you sure you don't want to stay?" Matt asked. "We could work something out, and you could stay and be apart of the Cybersquad."

"I think one Matt's enough for this group." Future Matt pointed out. "Besides, the only other course of action for me is the return to the Real World, and I don't think our mom would be too thrilled when she suddenly discovered that she had twins."

Grinning, Future Matt walked up to the portal. He stopped just before crossing the threshold, turning back around to the group behind him.

"Farewell everyone." he said. "But remember, Cyberspace is only so big. We'll all meet up with one another again, I'm sure."

And with that last phrase, he walked through the portal and was gone from sight.

And that's it. Of course, Future Matt is right, Cyberspace is only so big, and seeing that I have a habit of not being able to leave a good idea along, this probably isn't the end of the time traveler.

That said, time for a little self advertising. I have another Cyberchase story in the works, so be on the look out for it. :)
