The song for this last chapter is 'Angel Eyes' by The Jeff Healy Band.

"I am thanking goodness you and Comrade Colleen arrived in nick of timski," Exile said happily

"Ja, me too. God only knows what would have happened had neither one of you been there!" Blitz said happily.

"I'm just glad Master was able to have the tube built in time, bro," Hunter said happily.

"I'll say," Colleen agreed. "We were beginning to miss you all quite a lot, though."

"Yeah, it was a nice vacation, but it's good to be back!"

"It's good to HAVE you back," Blitz said. "Both of you will never know how good you two are at Leading this team until we tried to do it."

"Duh, I agree," Exile said. "You two are the best for this team. That is why Master chose both of you. Neither one of us could hold fire to you!"

"Aw, that's nice, Exile. Thanks!" Hunter said happily.

When thy got back to Headquarters Master was waiting for them. He smiled big and wide when he saw ALL the Rovers gathering in the Main Room. "Welcome back, Rovers. You did a great job. I'm especially glad to see Hunter and Colleen back with us!"

"M too. I'm so glad the tube worked," Hubert said under his breath.

"Duh, Master. It would have been end of street for all of us if thy did not come!"

"Ja, Master. I did not think of how valuable they are until they come in nick of time to save us!" Just then a sound came from the computer room next door. Hubert went to check it out.

"It's for Blitz," Hubert said, coming back. "It's from Persia of the Space Rovers."

Blitz smiled. 'Uh..I should take that," and he raced from the room. Hunter and Colleen exchanged an amuzed look.

"I don't think we need to get his word in writing!" Hunter said, smiling.

Soon Master lead Hunter and Colleen down the hallway where the rooms were. "Hunter, Colleen, we just finished your new bedroom. We all worked on it. Hubert, myself, Exile, Blitz, and even Shag. Hope you like it." H opened the door and Hunter and Colleen entered. The room was big and lovely. It had the American flag on the left wall, and the Union Jack on the right. Many of Hunter's things from his room were set up underneath his flag, and many of Colleen's things were under hers. A huge bed was up against the back wall decorated with a red, white, and blue cover. A framed wedding picture was st up on the wall opposite it. For a moment Hunter and Coleen were spellbound.

"Master.." Hunter said, too overcome to speak. "This..this..is gorgeous."

"Abso-bloomin-lutely beautiful!" Colleen said. "Oh, Master, thank you!"

"I can't believe you all did this!" Hunter exclaimed

"Hope you do believe us now, Hunter," Master said. "When we say you're a dedicated and valuable member of this team..both you and Colleen are. And the Rovers would not be the Rovers without either one of you! No matter what, neither one of you will ever be replaced!"

Hunter and Colleen both hugged the Master. "Thank you!" Thy both said. Smiling, Master closed the door behind him as he left the room. Hunter smiled at Colleen and took hr in his arms.

"Colleen, I an honestly say I would NOT have predicted this…any of this!" H gathered her close. "I'm married to the most wonderful dog who I love more than anything on earth..we have this great new room.."he stared into her lovely blue eyes. "But the most important thing, Colleen, is were gonna still be Road Rovers together! "

Colleen smiled and took Hunter's hand. "Together forever, Huntie! I wouldn't have it any other way!"

"Nether would I, Colleen, I love you."

"I love you, too, Huntie. Forever."

"Always and forever," Hunter promised, gathering Colleen in his arms and kissing her deeply. The kiss grew deeper and more meaningful. He slid his arms around her back and lifted her in his arms. Thy stared into each other's eyes, knowing what the other was thinking. Slowly, slowly he carried her to the bed….

A little while later the Rovers were all having a special dinner cooked by Shag. Hunter and Colleen than stood up and Hunter tapped his tea cup to get attention. "OK, everyone! Colleen and I got something to say." Everyone got quiet. "First of all," he began, tilting his cup to Shag. "We want to thank Shag, Exile, and Blitz for putting together this wonderful dinner. This is the best 'Welcome Back' dinner ever!" Thee Rovers clapped happily.

"W would also like to thank Master," Colleen answered. "For pulling the strings he did to allow Hunter and I to stay on the team. Also for not getting to mad when w decided to elope."

Master smiled. "I could never b too mad and any of you. But I kind of thought this might happen eventually."

"Thank you, Master." Hunter said. "And I also want to thank my one true love, Collen, for standing by me and giving me her unconditional love,. I never knew what true love really meant until you came into it. I knew no matter where Clinton took me I could never truly be happy unless I was right beside you. I'll wonder every day for the rest of my life how I got to be so blssed to have you with m. I love you, always and forever!"

Colleen put down her teacup and threw her arms around Hunter kissing him with all the love in her hart. "Hunter, I love you, You are the true, honest love of me life. I never thought I could ever find anyone like you. You are the sweetest, kindest, most wonderful dog ever, and me life would be empty without you. I'll wonder every day how I got to b so blessed. I love you, Huntie, with all me heart, forever. Thy kissed again as the Rovers clapped. Exile started up a nearby radio and a slow love song started up. Hunter scooped Colleen in his arms as the lovely words filled their bodies and touched their souls.

Girl, you're looking, fine tonight,
and every guy has got you in his sights.
What you're doing, with a clown like me,
is surely one of life's little, mysteries

So tonight I'll ask the stars above,
"How did I ever win your love?"
What did I do?
What did I say,
to turn your angel eyes my way?

Well, I'm the guy who never learned to dance,
never even got one second glance
Across a crowded room was close enough,
I could look but I could never touch

So tonight I'll ask, the stars above,
"How did I ever win your love?"
What did I do?
What did I say,
to turn your angel eyes my way?

Don't anyone wake me,
if it's just a dream
'Cause she's the best thing
,
ever happened to me

All you fellows, you can look all you like,
but this girl you see, she's leavin' here with me tonight

There's just one more thing that I need to know,
if this is love why does it scare me so?
It must be somethin only you can see,
'cause girl I feel it when you look at me

So tonight I'll ask the stars above,
"How did I ever win your love?"
What did I do?
What did I say,
to turn your angel eyes my way?

When the song ended Hunter kissed Colleen deeply, for just a moment forgetting where they were. But on thing WAS for sure. They had overcome what might have been one of the hardest things they would have had to go through..and they had done it together! They both knew that this was no doubt the ultimate test of their love. After these last few months, they knew they could get through anything. Any battles, any bad news, even more movies…as long as they were together! Together anything was possible!

Master smiled at this wonderful scene before him. "Welcome back, Hunter. Welcome back, Colleen. You're all good, good dogs!"
