A/N: Final chapter! And, GO!
Disclaimer: Nothing is mine, including the idea:(
Bailey half-dragged Cody back to the gameroom. When they arrived, their friends were not there.
"I wonder where they went," Bailey said.
Cody shrugged. "We left Zack and Maddie alone. Who knows where they could be."
Zack and Maddie sat on Zack's bed in his room.
"So," Zack started. "I know you had a thing for me when we were eight. I could see it in your eyes."
Maddie scoffed. "Oh please! You were too busy killing my princess picture with your stupid dinosaur!"
"Hey! You have to admit, it was an awesome dinosaur," Zack protested.
They shared a laugh, then both looked around the room in silence.
Zack stood up and threw his hands in the air. "Oh, for Pete's sake, Maddie! I'm just going to come out and say it!" He paused, embarrassed.
Maddie leaned forward a little, encouraging him to continue. "Yes, Zack?"
"I love you, Maddie! There, I said it!" He held his breath, waiting for her reaction.
All Maddie could do is laugh as Zack immediately turned red. "Breathe, Zack!" she demanded.
Zack exhaled and sat back down next to Maddie. "So..."
Maddie giggled and placed a hand on top of Zack's, causing him to smile. "I've known for a while, but are you sure you love me? I mean, 'love' is a very strong word, Zack. People misuse it quite often."
"Well, I do love you as a friend, but I really, really like you."
"Again, I've known. And I love you too, Zack," she said, adding, "As a friend." She gently leaned in and pecked Zack on his cheek.
Zack's hand flew out from underneath Maddie's, and went to his cheek. He laughed uneasily and said, "Th-thanks Maddie."
"No problem, Zack." A knock came from the dorm's door. "It's open!"
Cody and Bailey walked in, hand in hand. "Look! I'm back!" Bailey exclaimed.
Maddie stood up and ran to her. "Oh my gosh!" She turned to Cody. "How'd you do it?"
"Turns out I only fixed on helmet that both you and Zack used, but not Bailey," Cody explained. He looked to Zack, who was still rubbing his cheek. "What's with him?"
"Well, let's just say that one of his dreams came true today," Maddie said with a wink.
Later that evening, Cody and Bailey were outside on the Sky Deck, looking up at the stars. "This is been a crazy couple of days, don't you think?" Bailey asked.
Cody laughed. "You're telling me! I had to take care of all of you."
Bailey giggled. "We weren't that bad..."
"You trashed London's side of the room, then tied her up and ran around the ship!"
"Okay, we misbehaved a little.." Bailey placed her head on Cody's shoulder, and he wrapped his arm around her waist.
"I love you, Bailey," Cody whispered.
Bailey lifted her head and looked to Cody with wide eyes. "You-you love me?"
"That's what I said," Cody assured her. With his hand still around her, he tugged slightly and pulled her closer, so that their faces were only inches apart. He gave a small smile, showing his confidence.
Bailey's breathing staggard, as she tried to keep calm. She felt the warmth of her boyfriend's body against her own, which calmed her slightly.
"You okay, sweetie?" Cody asked, bringing his forehead to Bailey's.
"Ye-yeah.." she managed to say. She slowly wrapped her arms around Cody's neck and closed her eyes. She sighed, then smiled. "This is so perfect."
"Not quite," Cody corrected. Foreheads still touching, he gently tilted Bailey's chin up. Then their lips were touching, becoming one with each other. They had kissed, but it was nothing like what was happening. Cody ran his hand down Bailey's back as she ran her's through Cody's hair. When they parted, they both were breathing heavily. "Now it's perfect."
Bailey giggled quietly. She kissed Cody once more before saying, "I love you, too."
