Chapter Twenty


A/N: Oh no… it's the last chapter! I'm really sad, but also relieved because I no longer have to worry about plot and characters and ABBA songs. Alright, the words in bold in this chapter are from the ABBA song Mamma Mia. Thank you to the one person who suggested a song. You won the pick a song award! P.S., I don't own National Treasure or ABBA, just in case you were wondering.

I walked out of Abel's Curios and couldn't help but to smile when I saw Jon waiting for me across the street. The sun was just starting to set, and the city lights were beginning to light up the sky. Making sure I looked both ways across the street, I quickly ran over to where Jon was waiting.

As he looked up at me with those amazing blue eyes, I felt my stomach flutter. I almost tripped over the curb, and he caught me before I could meet the cement. I glanced up into his face, and we both smiled like idiots.

"Careful, watch your step." He laughed. I chuckled nervously, tucking a strand of my hair behind my ear as I stood again. Jon leaned against a light pole he was standing by, watching me. I came closer, my hands shaking for some reason.

"So… Mr. Poole," I smiled, standing in front of him, "What did you want to meet me for?" I asked.

"Well, I just had a small little something I wanted to give to you." He told me, his eyes sparkling.

"A present? For me?" I acted surprised, "Why, whatever for?"

"For surviving that whole ordeal a few weeks ago. Actually, in a way I'm kind of going to miss it." He gave a small sigh. I stared at him; he glanced down at me. "What?"

"You're going to miss being followed around by bad guys, high speed car chases, and having your life put in danger every five minutes?" I asked him. He gave a shrug.

"Well, you have to admit, it is going to be pretty boring without all of that." He smiled. I stared at him a moment longer before chuckling and shaking my head at him.

"You're right," I laughed, "Completely right."

We grew quiet, staring at each other shyly. Finally, he shuffled his feet a bit, and the spell was broken. Jon cleared his throat as he rummaged through his khaki bag for something.

"Here, I think that you'll like these…" he smiled at me, his eyes sparkling in the warm sunset light. I couldn't help but smile back as I felt myself shiver slightly.

And then, He held out two slips of blue paper in front of me. My smile slipped off my face, replaced by a shocked expression. I almost forgot to breathe as I stared at what he was holding out to me. I glanced up at him questioningly, but he just smiled as I slowly reached out and took the two tickets from him.

They were tickets to Mamma Mia on Broadway.

"Are-are these… how on earth did you get these?" I asked, my mind rushing as I stared at them.

"Do you like it? I mean, you want to go… don't you?" he asked nervously. I glanced back up at him.

"Yes, yes of course!" I laughed, throwing myself on top of him in a hug. He laughed back, and then slowly we leaned towards each other, meeting in a kiss.


The man tried his best to ignore his wife's chiding as he spied on the two teenagers that were kissing just around the corner from where he was sitting.

"Riley, I know that you miss all this spying stuff, but really, this is wrong. We should go." His wife urged him again.

"Alright," he sighed, finally giving up on trying to see around the crowded park full of people. "What did you have in mind?" he asked with a smile as he turned back to the petite woman next to him.

"Oh, I don't know…" she smirked, "Maybe another treasure hunt?"

I've been cheated by you since I don't know when

So I made up my mind, it must come to an end

Look at me now, will I ever learn?

I don't know how but I suddenly lose control

There's a fire within my soul

Just one look and I can hear a bell ring

One more look and I forget everything

Mamma mia, here I go again

My my, how can I resist you?

Mamma mia, does it show again?

My my, just how much I've missed you

Yes, I've been brokenhearted

Blue since the day we parted

Why, why did I ever let you go?

Mamma mia, now I really know

My my, I could never let you go

The young store owner peeked out her front window, and smiled as she saw the two teenagers kissing. Giving a soft sigh she returned to her shop. She laughed softly to herself as she remembered what it was like to be that age and to have a boyfriend, and she only slightly wished that she could go back in time to enjoy it again.

I've been angry and sad about things that you do

I can't count all the times that I've told you we're through

And when you go, when you slam the door

I think you know that you won't be away too long

You know that I'm not that strong

Just one look and I can hear a bell ring

One more look and I forget everything

Mamma mia, here I go again

My my, how can I resist you?

Mamma mia, does it show again?

My my, just how much I've missed you

Yes, I've been brokenhearted

Blue since the day we parted

Why, why did I ever let you go?

The girl and boy broke their kiss and started to walk down the sidewalk farther into the park, staring at each other with stupid smiles on their faces. Neither of them noticed the woman in a gray jacket and sunglasses following behind them.

Mamma mia, even if I say

Bye bye, leave me now or never

Mamma mia, it's a game we play

Bye bye doesn't mean forever

Mamma mia, here I go again

My my, how can I resist you?

Mamma mia, does it show again?

My my, just how much I've missed you

Yes, I've been brokenhearted

Blue since the day we parted

Why, why did I ever let you go?

Mamma mia, now I really know

My my, I could never let you go

The woman turned back before following the two any farther, and smiled at a man who was sitting in a parked car. He gave her a nod and a faint smile back, signaling her to go on. Turning around again, she continued trailing the teenage couple.

Giving a sigh, the man laughed softly to himself; Abigail would never have approved of spying on Charlotte. He closed his eyes and whispered a soft apology before pulling out into the street, on his way back home.

And so the summer started, a new beginning for a lot of people because of an old mystery that was solved.


A/N: I think this ending was slightly awkward becasue there wasn't too many spaces in the short song where I could fit some writing. Oh well, I hope you enjoyed it anyways! Can you believe that this story is over? I mean yeah, I started writing it in Septemeber and didn't start posting it until December, and here we are in Feburary and I'm done! I am going to miss it though... sad sigh. Review please! I'm going to sink into withdrawl until I get another fanfic idea again. ttfn!
