Author's Note: So, I've only been watching Phineas and Ferb for about a month now, but it has already inspired me to write something. And then I saw this disturbingly awesome meme… well… I won't post a link, but suffice it to say that the person did not like Isabella. Specifically because she has creepy-stalker potential. I personally don't have a problem with Isabella's crush on Phineas, but I thought I'd give my own little twist to it. =P Enjoy. And review! Srsly… the story means nothing if people don't give feedback.
"Oh, hey Isabella! We're not sure yet," Phineas replied. He and Ferb were lounging under the tree in their backyard. Perry the Platypus let out a small growl next to them.
Isabella gave Phineas her most adorable smile. "Wanna come over to my house?" she suggested. "My mom is making paella!"
"That sounds delightful!" Phineas exclaimed. Ferb blinked his approval. The step-brothers stood up and were about to walk out, but then Phineas and Isabella noticed something missing.
"Hey... where's Perry?" they asked simultaneously.
"Jinx!" Isabella declared gleefully. She and Phineas laughed. Ferb rolled his eyes. "You can bring the soda over when lunch rolls around, kay?" With that, they left the backyard and crossed the street.
Meanwhile, Agent P snuck into the kitchen. Lawrence Fletcher was sitting at the breakfast table, enjoying his toast while reading the morning newspaper. He looked up after the refrigerator door opened and closed, but saw nothing out of the ordinary.
Perry landed in his chair and hopped onto the floor of his lair, skillfully dodging the falling chunks of ice.
"Ooh, sorry about that, Agent P," Major Monogram mumbled as Perry went back to his seat. "I'd come up with an excuse, but we have bigger fish to fry. Doofenshmirtz's latest scheme, while hardly original, is perhaps his most evil plan to date. He has a new machine that will repair anything... including all of the 'inator's that have already been destroyed. It's up to you to fix... er... unfix the problems he is sure to create. We're counting on you, Agent P." The video screen went blank, and Perry leapt into his platypus-shaped rocket car, taking off through the sewer tunnels.
"So, what are your brothers up to today?" Stacy asked.
"They went over to Isabella's," Candace responded. "If they get into trouble over there, I can only hope Ms. Garcia-Shapiro knows what she's doing. Besides, Isabella probably has her own plans to keep Phineas busy."
"Ya know, I've always wondered about those two," Stacy pointed out. She took a seat next to Candace on her bed. "Are they, like, together?"
"Eeew! No," Candace answered quickly. "I can only imagine the horrors of Phineas having a girlfriend..."
"But still, they seem to like each other a lot," Stacy said. "They spend a lot of time together... and she's the only other girl around here that's in his age group."
"What about the other Fireside Girls?"
"They don't count."
"Point taken. Although, I have this sneaking suspicion that Isabella has a crush on him..." Candace knew she was making an understatement.
"Does he seem interested?" Stacy asked.
"Please. It's Phineas we're talking about. His interests include building stuff, having fun, and driving me crazy. ...Why ARE we talking about Phineas, anyway?" Candace gave her friend a quizzical look.
"Because when your brothers aren't doing something weird or building something cool, you tend to get a little paranoid," Stacy admitted. "I figured talking about him would keep you relatively sane."
"Oh, I guess that makes sense—hey, wait a minute!"
"Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated!" As the evil jingle ended, Perry crashed through the door and rolled into a fighting stance. An energy beam flew by him, hitting the broken door. Perry watched as the gaping hole sealed itself up.
"I've been waiting for you, Perry the Platypus!" Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz declared. He sat at the controls of a menacing-yet-cliché-looking laser cannon. He picked up a remote next to it and hit a button. Perry jumped, expecting some kind of trap. Instead, a curtain of energy flashed around Doofenshmirtz. Perry's eyes darted around wildly, trying to locate the evil scientist. Suddenly, his agent hat flew off of his head. He spun around and picked up the hat... but as soon as he touched it, it exploded, entangling Perry in cloth. There was another flash, and Doofenshmirtz appeared next to the trapped agent.
"So, now that you're tied up, let me tell you how this is going to work," Doofenshmirtz started. "That was the Invis-inator, by the way. Did you recognize it? And also, meet my latest invention, the Reconstruct-inator!" Dramatic music played in the background as Doofenshmirtz indicated the new laser cannon. "As Major Monogram probably told you, it can remake anything I choose!" He left Perry's side and walked toward the controls. "That's right, Perry the Platypus... you may have foiled all of my plans this summer, but now, they will all come back to haunt you!" He picked up the remote. "And I can control all of them with this handy little remote. Do you like it? Now, Perry the Platypus, FACE YOUR DOOM!" He hit a button, turning on a spotlight above a machine Perry distinctly remembered destroying: the Turn-Everything-Evil-inator. His platypus eyes widened as the machine turned towards him and prepared to fire...
