Author's Note: Well here it is, final chapter...
Betty sighed as she looked at her watch.
"Where is that guy?" She exclaimed.
The two of them had pushed the car to underneath the clock. They had told Wally to meet them at the first sign of a storm, it was now beginning to thunder, the rain poured heavily and the wind caused a dark chill.
Wally soon appeared running down the road.
"Where have you been? You're late!" Betty shouted to be heard over the wind and rain.
Wally shrugged. "I had to go home and get changed, you think I'm going home in a tux?"
"Forget it come on!" Betty yelled.
Wally ran over to them.
"My dad finally did it!" He yelled happily. "Mr Boss started something and dad punched him right there! He's never stood up to Mr Boss before!"
"Really?" Betty gasped. "Uh oh!"
"What?" Wally asked.
"Forget it...Okay Wally, I've set your destination time for the exact time you left, it'll be like you never went anywhere." Betty told Wally, showing him the controls. "As soon as the lightning hits the clock, start to drive as fast as you can down this road, I've multiplied the acceleration and the distance with the time it should take you to disperse completely and added a few more metres, so you should be fine."
Wally nodded. "Okay."
"I guess that's everything." Betty sighed.
She smiled at Wally and pulled him into a hug. "So I guess we'll see you in around 30 years."
"I hope so." Wally replied.
He broke the hug with Betty and quickly walked to Hoagie and wrapped his arms around him.
"By the way. When you have your sons, don't be away for two long, it kills Hoagie when you have to leave for business." Wally told him.
Hoagie nodded. Wally smiled and jumped into the car, getting ready for lightning to strike.
"Oh Wally." Betty said. Wally looked at her, she held the note in her hand. "What is this?"
"You'll find out in about thirty years." Wally replied.
"No! Wally I told you, we can't know about the future!" Betty replied, ripping it up.
"No! Betty! You've got to know!" Wally argued. "I'll just have to tell you now!"
Betty childishly covered her ears and shouted an out of tune song. Wally tried to get her to listen but stopped when a bolt of light struck.
"Forget it Wally! This is it! The clock'll be struck soon!" Hoagie stated.
Wally shut the door and revved the engine.
A flash of light occurred and a zapping noise rung in Wally's ears.
"Now!" Betty shrieked.
Wally drove as fast as he could.
"Man, I wish Betty hadn't have torn that note up. Now I'll never be able to help Hoagie...wait! I can just turn this back..." Wally thought aloud.
He pressed the buttons on the car and reversed the time ten minutes.
With a sudden flash, Wally screamed and slammed on the brake. He managed to stop just before ramming into the park fence. He gave a sigh of relief and looked around.
Suddenly realising the time he glanced at his watch.
"4 minutes." He gasped.
The car wouldn't start. "Great."
Wally jumped out of the car and ran down the road towards the mall.
He ran as fast as he could. Finally he came to the parking lot of the mall, but was surprised to see nothing. He looked around in confusion. He saw the teenage gang going into the mall, ready to cause some trouble. Slowly, Wally walked away.
He walked to Hoagie's house and knocked on the door.
"What's going on?" He thought to himself.
The door opened. It was Hoagie.
"Wally." He exclaimed. "Sorry, I tried to call you but you weren't answering."
"Hoagie!" Wally beamed. He pulled his best friend into a hug.
"Whoa! Okay." Hoagie chuckled nervously in confusion. He then whispered to Wally. "Sorry I couldn't meet up with you. My mum seemed to know that I was trying to get out, because she hasn't let me out of her sight all night dude."
Wally grinned. "It's okay, trust me. I know that that thing will work. Maybe we should wait until we're older to try it. You know, work on some smaller inventions maybe?"
"Sure, I guess but why?" Hoagie asked. Wally shrugged.
"Anyway, come in, you might as well stay over." Hoagie told him. "I'm just going to the bathroom."
"Hello there Wallabee, you're here late." A voice said.
Wally looked over to see Mrs Gilligan smiling at him. Wally smiled politely.
"Hi Mrs Gilligan, Hoagie just called me to come over...he was...hoping to come to mine but you wanted him here so..." Wally started.
Mrs Gilligan pulled out a piece of paper. It had been taped together.
"It was a little hard to read." Mrs Gilligan stated. "Because it got so wet, so it was real smudged, but it was okay, I mean...I sat with my hair dryer for hours trying to stop the paper from ripping up anymore it was so soggy...anyway...it was so sweet."
Wally's eyes widened. "But...You didn't want to know about the future. You said it could make drastic changes."
Betty shrugged with a smile. "You made me too curious, you wanted me to know so badly...anyway, this was a good drastic change...my son's still alive because of a note that some guy gave to me in 1970."
Wally smiled. Hoagie came out of the bathroom. "Hey mum, what's that."
"Oh, n...nothing sweetie." Betty stated, hiding the note in her pocket. "Why don't you two go upstairs, I'll bring up some snacks."
"Okay." Hoagie replied. "Come on Wally."
Wally followed his best friend up the stairs.
"Oh hello Wally, I didn't know you were here." A male voice exclaimed.
"Mr Gilligan?" Wally smiled. "You're here!"
Mr Gilligan looked at himself from his feet upwards.
"It looks like it." he chuckled.
Wally smiled. "I thought you were in France for business."
"What?" Hoagie scoffed.
Mr Gilligan chuckled and shook his head.
"No, somebody once told me to spend more time with my family that away on business."
"Dad? Are you okay?" Hoagie asked. "You're acting weird."
"Sure, I'm fine son." Mr Gilligan said, winking at Wally. Who snickered.
Wally was so glad. He was back in his own time period, his best friend was alive, and tomorrow, he could go back home, back to his normal life.
He closed his eyes and fell asleep.
The next morning, Wally walked to his house, opening the door, his eyes widened with shock.
The house was huge, it wasn't as he'd remembered it.
"Hello there my little kangaroo!" His mother beamed as she walked down the stairs.
She wasn't wearing her housewife style dress with a hair band in her medium cut hair. She wore stylish jeans with a designer t-shirt and her hair was longer, it fell below her shoulders. She looked so...cool.
"What's going on?" Wally asked.
His mother gave him a strange look. "What do you mean?"
Wally shook his head. "Nothing."
He walked into the living room and looked around, it was full of pictures and paintings on the wall.
Walking over to the fireplace, Wally stared at the painting above it. It was a painting of him and his family, retro style. It was such good quality, it looked like an Andy Warhol masterpiece.
"Your dads latest painting is definitely his best so far don't you think?" Mrs Beatles smiled as she stood next to him and smiled at the portrait.
"Painting?" Wally asked.
"Look, I'm telling you now! I'm not selling that painting for any less than $30,000." Wally's dad said as he stepped in the door.
"But sir I don't think that..." A timid voice replied.
"I said no less than $30,000." Steve stated. "End of discussion Monty!"
Steve slammed the door and sighed.
"I've always been on top of him since high school." He said proudly.
"But if it wasn't for him we never would have fallen in love sweetie." Layla smiled. Walking over and giving her husband a kiss.
"True." Steve chuckled. "I'll have to thank him for that later."
"Gross." Wally spluttered.
He walked out of the house and sat on the doorstep. Trying to analyse what was going on.
"Wait a minute!" He told himself. "I told my dad to carry on painting...now that's what he does for a job? And Mr Boss works for him?..I changed the future...well...I guess that change couldn't have hurt."
Wally looked up to see Kuki.
"Kuki!" Wally rushed to his friend and picked her up, spinning her around in a circle. "It's great to see you."
"Whoa, Wally, you're acting weird. It's like you haven't seen me in years." Kuki scoffed.
Wally smiled. "Believe me, it feels like I haven't."
"Aw, that's sweet. I came to see if you wanted to go for a walk in the park or something?" Kuki said with a blush.
Wally nodded. "Sure. Sounds great."
They walked to the park slowly, and sat on the swings.
"Wally, do you ever thing about what you might be in the future?" Kuki asked.
Wally chuckled. "You know what? Right now I'd rather focus on the present."
