Danny was upset. It seemed that everything that that went wrong this Hanukkah seemed to, in some way, be related to him. He was currently talking with Tucker in the techno geek's room.

"I can't believe Hanukkah's almost over." He told Tucker.

"Yeah, it was almost like I was hardly there." The techno geek responded. Danny sighed.

"Tucker, am I bad boyfriend?" He asked.

"I don't like you that way!"

"No! I mean to Sam. Am I?"

"Why would you think that?"

"Lets see. I promised her I would make sure my parents wouldn't hurt anyone, killer latkes almost ate everybody, I broke her Chanukkiyah, and nearly killed some religious leader at temple, and I willing let her get wedgied to the flagpole."

"Wow Danny, you really can make yourself sound like a jerk." Tucker commented.

"I want to make it up to Sam somehow. But I can't think of anything." The ghost boy hung his head low.

"Yeah, it'd take a miracle to make up for all that." Tucker kidded, trying to cheer his friend up.

"THAT'S IT! Tucker you're a genius! I'll give Sam a miracle!"

"Danny, you can't give someone a miracle. They just happen."

"Well I'll make one happen!" Danny ran out of his friend's room and out the house to plot what to give Sam for a miracle.




Sam was currently sitting on a bench in the park, watching the snow fall. She was tempted to stick her tongue out and catch one but with today's air pollution the Goth decided it wasn't worth poisoning herself with whatever toxic waste had ended up in the snow. As she continued to contemplate this two mitten-clad hands covered Sam's eyes, causing her to jump before realizing they were Danny's.

"Sam, can I ask you a question?"


"What would you want in a miracle?"

"Well the generic stuff of course. You know, world peace, no more animal cruelty, everyone stops polluting, Paulina is gruesomely murdered…"

"Anything that could actually happen?" Sam responded to the question by pulling Danny on to the bench and laying her head against his shoulder.

"Nope. I don't need a miracle. I've got everything I could want. Great friends, the world isn't in mortal danger… at the moment, my family loves me… in their own creepy preppy way, and I have you."

"But I'm a terrible screw-up. I've practically ruined Hanukkah for you."

"No you haven't! What gave you that idea?"

"Well I don't see how anyone could see getting suspended from a flagpole, nearly getting eaten by latkes and having someone destroy a priceless family heirloom as anything but a ruined holiday." Danny sighed. "I'm a terrible boyfriend aren't I Sam? Be honest."

"No, your not."


"I am. Danny, you said it yourself. The people you love are the people you really don't like. I admit this hasn't been the best Hanukkah but you certainly didn't ruin it. And before you ask. Yes Danny, you are a major screw-up, but that's okay. I wouldn't love you if you weren't, because then you wouldn't be you. And do you know why I don't like referring to us as boyfriend and girlfriend? Because I like you more than just some term that half the time means nothing. The only miracle I could ever think of that I didn't already mention is if you got that through your clueless head. I want to spend the rest of my life you with." Sam took a deep breath, a necessary thing after such a long winded rant.

"Well then. You've got your miracle Sam. Can I borrow your weS ring for a second? This is kind of an on the spot decision and I didn't have time to prepare."

"Sure, I guess." Sam took the ring off and handed it to Danny. He then got off the bench and got on one knee, with the ring in his hand. The Goth was very confused.

"Samantha Manson, when we're older, will you marry me?"

"Yes!" Sam put her ring back on the two lovebirds kissed on the bench for a while.

"I'll get you a real engagement ring when we're closer to actually getting married. Sorry I didn't have anything right now. It was kind of an on the spot decision."

"And the best one of your life." Sam commented. "But Danny, I have a few conditions. One: I would like to be married on Halloween if possible. Two: There's in no chance in heck I'm wearing a white dress. And Three: We're having at least three kids, preferably six but that might be aiming a bit high." Danny just smiled and hugged his new fiancé.

"I wonder how our parents are going to take the fact that we're fourteen and engaged." Danny thought out loud.

"Hey, its not we're actually tying the knot anytime soon." Sam replied. The two then walked out of the park, hand in hand. The first person they decided to tell was Tucker, who fainted on the spot. Then they decided to tell Jazz, same reaction. Finally, deciding that they had had their share of seeing people faint today, Danny and Sam decided to just lay on the formers bed and cuddle.

"You know Sam, over these past eight days I've learned something."

"What?" His fiancé of about an hour asked.

"Hanukkah is… interesting."

Sam could only nod in agreement.

Woo! I'm finally done, now I know how Jonathan Coulton felt after Thing a Week ended. But thanks to some glitch with Fanfiction I couldn't post the chapter for some reason, its late! I TRIED PEOPLE! The whole engagement thing started off as a joke in chapter seven. But I was out of ideas and it seemed to fit. Sam got her miracle after all, Danny stopped being clueless (for about five minutes). Also this chapter had several deleted scenes. If you want to know about them just ask in a review and I'll pm you. They were cut out for time and because one was a little too mature. Thanks for reading this story and a special thanks to everyone who reviewed, and an even more special thanks to those who gave me suggestions and helped with my clear lack of knowledge on Hanukkah. See you next time!
