"Danny, get up," Maddie whispered into her son's ear. He was sleeping peacefully on the couch with the bandages wrapped around his torso keeping his wounds from bleeding out again. Whatever Vlad had put on the knife hadn't let him heal it his-self. So now he was lying on the couch in the living area of their hotel room with bandages wrapped around the circle.
"I don't want too," Danny mumbled and threw the pillow at her playfully. Maddie frowned and then grinned evilly.
"I know a way too," she whispered and gently took her fingers and ran down up his back. His eyes shot open, and his back arched away from the gentle touch.
"Hey," he said playfully glaring at his mother. "That's not fair."
"We are going home today, Sweetie," Maddie said holding Danny's hand. He smiled up at her.
"What do you plan on telling everyone?" Danny asked looking at her confused. "If we are going back, then what you tell them?"
"The truth," Maddie said smiling.
"No, I don't want," Danny was interrupted by his mother putting her fingers on his lips. His expression was worried and frightened.
"I don't plan on telling that part, but I do plan on saying that Masters kidnapped you," Maddie said spitting Masters out like a poison. Danny smiled.
"I can deal with that," Danny said as Sam entered and ran up to him and hugged him.
"I'm so excited to have you back home," Sam whispered into his ear. "This is like a dream come true."
"Thanks, Sam," Danny said hugging her back. "I'm glad I get to go home now. I hated it out there by myself." Maddie smiled as Tucker came around the corner smiling at the clueless couple or what he thought were clueless as they leaned in and kissed once more. Tucker stopped dead, confusion written all over his face. Maddie smiled and left leaving the couple alone.
"You know," Sam whispered. "Tucker was behind us."
"I saw him enter, I thought it would funny," Danny said as Tucker smiled broadly. He came running up.
"I knew you two were in love, I can't believe it took so long. But I so totally knew it," Tucker yelled. "OW!" he screamed as Sam's combat boot kicked his shin.
"You are so loud," Sam said smiling as Danny looked between his best friends.
"I am so glad to be going home with you guys," Danny said smiling as they started arguing about how much Sam's boots hurt and why she had to wear them.
"Danny is leaving today?" Mozzie asked depression sounding in his voice.
"Sorry, but he does have family and he has been gone from home for far too long," Neal said smiling. "He deserves to go home."
"Do you think he will come back sometime?" Mozzie asked as the depression moved on.
"Most likely, if his parents end up going to more conventions over the years here. He might come just to see us," Neal said smiling. "If not, we can always call him and ask how he has been."
"This is true," Mozzie said smiling. "Is the FBI taking care of Casper High then?"
"Peter is going next week to check out the school before Danny can go back," Neal said. "He said that he was going to tell the school that Masters kidnapped Danny and tell them that they are looking into more here on what could have lead to it."
"Do you think I could go with him?" Mozzie asked hoping to see the half-ghost's home.
"I don't think he would like that, Moz," Neal said beginning to paint another picture.
"Morning, El," Peter said as he got some coffee and cereal.
"Morning, Hon," El said sitting down. "Danny going home today?"
"Yeah, then I will be flying to Amity to check out some leads on Masters and go though his mansion."
"Sounds fun," El said smiling. "I'm glad he ended up here, otherwise who knows what would have happened."
"I'm glad that he is okay after all that," Peter said as the memories from the fight come back into his head. "I have shot people and seen many things as an agent, but watching a teenager getting cut opened alive, isn't one of them. His screams of pain and panic, I don't think I could have done what he had and be able to trust again. He seems a bit more cautious now. He still has trust issues with new people. I think that Masters was trying to ruin his trust with his family and it didn't work."
"He was cut open?" El asked horror flashed on her face as she imaged Danny being sliced open.
"Masters was saying something about his parents not caring about him and that they only wanted him to be their next experiment," Peter said looking down at his food. "That kid was starved almost to death and then Masters tries to make him think that his family would do something like that."
"It's sick. I hope he gets what's coming to him," El said angrily. "No one should put a kid though that, especially ones like Danny. He so sweet and kind. It's just wrong," El yelled.
"It's okay," Peter said smiling at his wife. "He'll get to go home and live life. He just will be fighting for people who don't want him there and believe that he abandoned them."
"Ungrateful," El said angrily.
"I know, but that's Danny," Peter said smiling. "According to Sam, it's his hero-complex. He won't let anything happen to those he cares about. We are now officially under that little protection. And if anything happens and he needs to go somewhere else then he gets to come here."
"What do you mean?" El asked confused.
"Sam said something to Tucker that I wasn't to hear, but I did anyway. Apparently, in another timeline, everyone in Danny's family was killed and he ended up at Masters'," Peter explained recalling the eves dropped conversation. "I'm glad we are now in, just in case something happens and Danny isn't able to change it." El smiled.
"He is a good kid," El said as Peter kissed her good bye.
"I know, and I think that he will grow up to do great things," Peter said smiling.
"Look up there," Dash yelled pointing up to the sky as Danny Phantom started doing loops and patterns, dancing across the sky to the music of the wind.
"I knew he would come for me," Paulina yelled running in front of everyone. Sam rolled her eyes and watched as her boyfriend did the flight patterns he had learned while he was gone.
"He didn't come for you Paulina," Sam said glaring at the girl. "He came to protect his home, his family, and his friends."
"What would you know, Goth freak? I don't see your boyfriend here. Oh that's right he ran away," Paulina huffed sticking her nose in the air.
"I was kidnapped by Mayor Fruitloop, Paulina," a voice said from around the corner. "I believe that he tricked all of you," Danny said walking back around and putting his hands into Sam's.
"Fen-turd," Dash taunted. "You got kidnapped? Yeah right, you ran away because your family is crazy."
"We are all crazy, Dash," Danny said calmly. "I don't care what you think. I've been gone for eight months and have learned a lot in this."
"Whatever, Fenton," Dash growled. "Let's go, Paulina." Paulina stuck her nose back in the air and walked away with Dash. Danny and Sam started laughing.
"That was the greatest thing ever," Sam whispered kissing Danny's cheek.
"Hopefully everyone will know by next Monday and I don't have to worry about telling everyone," Danny smiled kissing Sam's head. "I'm just glad that it's over." Sam smiled.
This is the end.
