Last chapter! T-T. I just want to thank all the people who reviewed this story. I love comments, good & bad. You guys are awesome!
"Oh no!" shouted Chowder, "They're going to go down that hill!" Chowder quickly looked around. He saw a kid and his bike.
"Sorry," said Chowder as he grabbed the bike, "but I need to borrow this so I can save my friends who I accidentally turned into babies!
The kid just stared at Chowder strangely as he rode off.
Chowder had taken a short cut that led around and to the bottom of the enormous hill. He saw the kids cheering as they were about to go down.
"Guys! Don't!" But it was too late. The wagon sped down the hill and past Chowder at warp speed. Chowder ran his hardest to grab the handle that was on the back of the wagon.
"Almost.....there," he said when his hand was merely inches away, "Gotcha!" But when he did grab the handle, the wagon just took Chowder along with him!
Chowder put his feet on the ground and pulled as hard as he could. SCREEEEECH! The wagon screeched to a complete stop. Chowder quickly went to the front of the wagon to see if the kids were okay.
The kids looked like they had seen a ghost. But before Chowder could ask if they were okay, Little Mung shouted "That was awesome! Let's do it again!" and was followed by cheers.
"Seriously guys that was not cool!" said Chowder in his strictest voice.
The kids all gave him puppy dog eyes and said in unison "we're sowwy,"(except Panini who just said "Ga bee.")
"Oh, it's okay guys," said Chowder with a kind smile, "Let's all go home." The kids gladly got out of the wagon (except Panini) and were walking happily along with Chowder.
But by the time they had gotten back to the bench they were at, the kids (and Chowder) we're exhausted
"Chowder," said Little Mung "Can we stop for a minute, pleese?"
"Sure," said Chowder, "but just for a minute." But by the time that minute was up, the kids were fast asleep.
"(yawn) I guess we can stay here for another minute or two..."
"Chowder? Chowder!" Chowder opened his eyes. He saw Mung, Truffles, Shnitzel, and Panini, all their correct ages. The 24 hours must be up, thought Chowder.
"Oh, hey guys. Uh, (nervous laughter) so, how was your nap?"
They all gave him that your-in-trouble look.
"I'm sorry I accidentally turned you all into babies," said Chowder looking down at his feet.
"Well," said Mung, "I guess it wasn't all bad, it was fun being a kid again."
"But what about Truffles and you having a date as teenagers?"
"Well," said Truffles, "when we were kids again, it felt like I was meeting Mung for the first time again, which is more romantic than any date." Truffles leaned over to kiss Mung, and Mung kissed her back.
"Ew gross! Blech!" shouted Chowder.
"Thanks for taking care of me while I was a baby, Chowder," said Panini as she moved closer to Chowder.
"Uh, your welcome? But I'm still not your boyfriend!" Everyone laughed.
"Come on, let's go home," said Mung, "I'm starving!"
"You said it!"
"You read my mind!"
Everyone looked back at Shnitzel. "What did you say, Shnitzel?" asked Chowder.
"Oh, okay then."
The End :-)
