Disclaimer: Nine chapters. It's the last one. And I still don't own Tales of Symphonia. How lame.

A/N: Well, here it is. Last chapter. Sniff…I'll miss writing this soooo much…

Anyways, Ranchdressing had some ideas for titles…and I thought they were brilliant…so yeah. Here they are.

Zelos received the title of "Love Sick!"

Genis received the title of "Love Doctor!"

Yuan received the title of "Kratos Obsessed!"



"Lloyd earned the title of Mr. Oblivious!"

Chapter nine: Epilogue



"Go to sleep."

"I want toast."

Lloyd scowled and pulled the pillow over his head. "Go to sleep, Zelos."

"I want toast."



Zelos yanked the pillow off Lloyd's head, forcing him to meet the morning. He screwed his eyes shut and groaned.

"Lloyd. Who got top last night?"


"I want my toast."


"Lloyd, I'd be limping. The Great Zelos Wilder would be limping and it'd be all your fault! What would I say? What would I d—"

"If I get you toast, will you shut up?" Lloyd stood slowly, groaning. "What do you like on your toast, anyway? Peanut butter? Jam?"

"Jam and banana."

Lloyd paused, giving Zelos a strange look. "Jam."

"Uh huh."

"And bananas?"

"Uh huh."

"You're so weird."

"Look, just get me my toast, okay?"

Lloyd couldn't help but roll his eyes.

"Well, you're up early, Lloyd," Raine said as soon as he walked in the dining room. "It's only noon."

"Have you seen the idiot Chosen?" Sheena asked, irritated. "I haven't seen him all day."

"Noooo…of course not. Um, where're the bananas?"

"Bananas?" Genis stared at Lloyd. "Lloyd, you do know that bananas and jam don't go well together, right?"

"That's what I said. But Zelos wants toast."

"He wants breakfast in bed?" Regal asked.

"Zelos is lazy," Presea said.

"Uhh…I'm not sure it's just that…" Lloyd mumbled, finding the bananas and peeling one. "I think he has a…butt-related injury…or something…"

Sheena suddenly smashed her face into her cereal, wailing something about how it hadn't been a hallucination. Genis started spewing milk all over the table. Yuan got a knowing smile on his face, and Kratos froze, looking like he wanted to die right then. Raine started choking and had to be Heimliched by Regal. Colette just smiled innocently.

"Oh, that's too bad," she said. "Maybe he fell on a sharp rock?"

"I somehow doubt that," Genis muttered.

"How else can anyone get a butt-related injury?" Colette asked curiously.

"I'll just be going now…" Lloyd started off towards the stairs.

"Lloyd!" Sheena grabbed her friend's shoulders. "You…and Zelos…"

"I'm leaving now," Lloyd said, face somewhat red.

"ARE YOU OKAY?!" she screamed, shaking him. "WHAT DID HE DO TO YOU?!"


"Sheena, you're kind of killing him," Genis said gently, pulling the crazy ninja away from Lloyd. "And think about it. Who has the butt-related injury?"

Sheena looked at Lloyd for a full five seconds before screaming and fainting dead away.

"Maybe that was the wrong thing to say."

"Anyways, I'm going upstairs n—"

"Lloyd," Kratos said, yanking the ribbons on his son's jacket. "You realize you and I are going to have to have a little Talk now, don't you?"

"Help!" Lloyd yelled, trying to free himself without much success. "Anyone, help! Genis?! Sheena?! Colette?! Please!"

"Oh, but, um, if your father wants to talk to you, I think that would be a good thing!" Colette said.

"Muh mouff is full."

"And Sheena's fainted," Raine said, indicating the ninja.

"Someone help! Anyone help! Yuan?!"

"He loves me, he loves me not, he loves me…" Yuan stared at the petalless flower. "He loves me!"

"Uh oh," Genis muttered.

"You loooooooove me!" Yuan exclaimed to Kratos.


Lloyd took the moment of surprise as Yuan latched onto his father to run up the steps to Zelos's bedroom.

Sebastian sighed and began cleaning up the hundreds of little petals on the ground.

"Did you get my toast?" Zelos asked.

"I'm happy to see you too."

"Come on. It's morning. In the morning I like toast."

Lloyd pouted, but Zelos only had eyes for the toast.

"Toast?" Zelos pleaded.

"It very nearly had a quick end."

"Good thing it didn't."

Rolling his eyes and puffing in amusement, Lloyd handed Zelos the toast.

"The banana slices are too thick."

Lloyd shoved at Zelos's head in annoyance. "Hey, give me a break! I'm new at this!"

"Don't shove me. I'm injured, remember?"

Lloyd crossed his legs and rested his chin on his hand. "Whatever."

Five bites of jam-banana toast later, Zelos glanced up. "Sooo…do you think they know?"

"What, about your weird tastes in toast? Yeah, I kinda think so."

"No, you idiot. About us."

Thinking back to everyone's reactions to his proclamation that Zelos had a butt-related injury, he replied, "I think they might have a hunch."

A/N: Yeppies…that's the end. And thisis the last note of this story…thanks for reviewing.
