A/N: Hi! I went up to my cottage with my family, and there was no internet, even though my parents had been assured me there was. Sorry. This is the last chapter of this fanfiction. Thank you for reading and reviewing. I hope you enjoyed it.

The next morning, Marco was avoiding me. He went out of his way to make sure we didn't interact.
"Marco, please talk to me." I begged him, grabbing his arm. I was desperate for him to listen. I hadn't meant to ridicule him. I didn't know.
"I have nothing further to say to you." Marco said stiffly and angrily.
"Then just listen to me. I'm sorry. I wasn't thinking. Please let me explain."
"No. Just go back to your boyfriend and leave me alone. I don't want to talk to you." He shouted, jerking his arm out of my grasp.
"For the last time, he's not my boyfriend. He's so not my type. And fine. I will." I screamed, turning on my hell and stalking off. I threw myself onto the ground and buried my head in my hands.
"Alexa, what is it?" Yipes asked, walking up behind me. "What's wrong?"
"Everything." I said, my voice muffled by my tears. "I just completely messed things up with Marco, just as we were finally working things out. And the worst part is, I think I may be falling in love with him."
"Shhh. It's alright. Everything will be fine. I promise."
"How do you know?"
"I just know." Yipes said confidently. "He would never let you go."
Yipes stayed with me while I cried, comforting me. When I was finally ready to go back to the Stargazer, he went with me. As soon as he saw me, he turned away from me.
"Oh for goodness sakes!" Yipes shouted. Marco and I looked at him in surprise. "Alexa, Marco has liked you for ages – since he joined the crew of the Stargazer. Marco, Alexa completely reciprocates those feelings. Now please, stop arguing and skirting around each other!" He continued, throwing hands in the air. With that, he left Marco and I alone together. We stood there in uncomfortable silence, staring at each other.
"Is it true Marco? What Yipes said?" I asked shyly, blushing furiously.
"Well, yeah." He admitted, looking down. "What about what he said about you?" He looked back up, desperately staring at me.
"Yeah." I said, my flush deepening. "It is."
Marco took a step forward, and pulled me into his arms. "But I thought for sure you loved that other boy, the one from Castalia." He said, leaning his cheek on the top of my head.
"Him? Never. I already told you he isn't my type at all." I replied, waving my hand dismissively.
"What about me?" He asked, pulling away so that I could see his face. His eyes were sparkling mischievously. "Am I your type?"
"You are exactly my type" I replied, leaning up, taking his face in my hands and kissing him.
And everything was perfect.
We spent the rest of our lives together, travelling the skies in the Stargazer. We fell more and more in love with each other. Don't get me wrong, we had our fair share of fights, but we always made up.
After four years of sailing the skies together, when I was 18 and he was 19, Marco asked me to marry him, and I agreed. We got married on the Third Pillar, where Yipes and Matilda had married years before. Everyone was there, and it was perfect.
We had children, but we still flew the skies, taking our many children with us. We had found our place, just as I was sure each and every one of my children would find theirs, whether it be on land, on water, or in the air.
When our time was at an end, and our work done, Marco and I took one last trip on the Stargazer. We flew to the Tenth City and walked through the gates together, just as I had imagined so long ago.
