Hey guys, I don't have much to say up here. I just wanted to inform you all that this is, sadly, the last chapter of this story. I hope you enjoy it :D
"Isabella!" Everyone but Phineas whispered, sounding confused.
"What are you doing here?" Linda asked.
"I couldn't help it Mrs. Flynn- Fletcher. I had to see him!" Isabella replied, tears starting to fill her eyes.
"It's alright Isabella. We're just a bit confused, that's all. I think it would have been a bit better for him if he had a little more time to let everything settle before having anyone come over." Lawrence murmured calmly, trying to calm Isabella down before she started crying. The doctors told him and Linda that letting Phineas be exposed to too many emotions may confuse him even more than everything already did, making everything even more confusing than it already did. Either that or it may upset Phineas, making it so he just gives up because he realizes how little he knows.
Lawrence's try didn't work as well as he had hoped though. Isabella's tears fell faster as she glared at the family. "You don't get it, do you? It will never really settle! At least, not for a LONG time! It was hard enough for me to wait as long as I did, you know! I just give up! I can't deal with this anymore!" she turned to stomp out of the building, but she only took her first step towards the door when someone grabbed her arm, following her as she left.
It wasn't until they were both outside that she looked at who was holding her, though she already knew. Ferb stood there, finally letting go of her hand since they were safely outside of the room. Usually his mere presence calmed her, but she could tell just by looking at him that he was just as stressed as she was. Just one look into each other's eyes told them both all they needed to know though. You see, when you've known Ferb as long as Isabella has, you learn a thing or too. She had learned how to read his eyes, and he had learned the same with her. They had a whole conversation just by looking at each other.
Ferb was the first one to look away. He turned away, and went back to the door opening it slowly. It was deathly quiet in the room, until Ferb finally spoke up.
"Mom, dad, may you both come out for a second? Isabella wants a moment to say goodbye."
Doofenshmirtz looked down, confused at who could be interrupting him now. He saw a dark red child, who was wearing purple glasses over his black eyes, and a white shirt which buttoned up at the top over brown slacks. Doofenshmirtz recognized him as Carl, Monograms intern. Beside him was Perry the Platypus.
"You let him out?! How did you even know how to do that?" Doofenshmirtz asked, sounding confused. He shook his head, and glared down at the two of them. "Well, that doesn't matter either way. You are too late, Perry the Platypus." He pulled out a remote from a pocket in his lab coat. "With the touch of this button, you will have failed, Perry the Platypus."
Carl leaned down until he was the same height as Perry. He whispered as quiet as he could to Perry.
"Hey Perry, do you think you could attack him and destroy that remote if I distract him long enough for you to sneak over there?" Perry looked over at Carl and nodded, smiling at him. It was at times like this that he was happy that Monogram decided to hire a super-nerd.
"Hey Doof, what exactly is your plan this time? And when can I expect it to blow up in my face?" He asked. Perry started moving slowly, hoping that would be enough of a distraction for Doofenshmirtz. He had almost made it too, but Doofenshmirtz noticed him, right when he was reaching his hand out to steal the remote.
"Whoa Perry, what do you think YOUR doing?" He asked, raising his hand higher. He opened his mouth to say something else, but it was too late. Perry had already jumped up and kicked him, forcing the remote to fly.
"My family called you… Isabella, right?" Phineas asked when she entered the room, smiling nervously. She could tell he was nervous to be in the same room with her, and she honestly could understand why.
"Yes Phineas." She said calmly, even though she wanted to start crying again.
"It's nice to meet you Isabella. How exactly did I know you before this happened?" he asked, gesturing to himself.
"We were best friends." She murmured, fighting back tears even more.
"Really?" he asked.
She just nodded.
"So, what are you doing here then? I heard that only family was allowed." he told her, eyeing her curiously.
"I actually came to say goodbye." She told him, tears starting to form in her eyes. He seemed to sit up a little straighter after hearing this.
"Why?" He asked, sounding disappointed for some reason. It surprised Isabella to hear the disappointment.
"I have to. I can't really explain it. Sorry. I would if I could, but I don't want to cry again." She told him, crying even more. She didn't let Phineas see it though. She wiped her tears quickly, and stopped herself from crying anymore.
"Ok. I hope I may see you again." he replied, smiling again. That was when Isabella couldn't help herself anymore. She started bawling, causing Phineas to jump. "Did I say something wrong?"
"No, that's just it, Phineas! You can never say anything wrong! You ALWAYS say EVERYTHING right! I'm sorry. It's just that… I love you Phineas Flynn!" She yelled. Before she could stop herself, she ran up to his bed and kissed him. She stopped herself as soon as she had started though, cheeks glowing red. His cheeks were just as red as hers though.
"I'm so sorry Phineas. I'll just leave now." She muttered, running towards the exit. Hearing his now raspy voice stopped her though.
"Please don't go Isabella. I remember it now!" Phineas gasped, a light in his eyes that hadn't been there in weeks.
"Wait, what?" she asked, turning asked.
"I said I'm starting to remember it! I'm starting to remember everything." He repeated, smiling his first real smile he's had a while.
"Really?" she asked, smiling in return.
"Yes, but it's still fuzzy. What should I do now, Isabella?" He asked, looking confused still.
"I don't know Phineas. But whatever you do, you don't need to worry about doing it alone. We can get through this together, ok?" She asked him, giving him the choice.
He didn't even hesitate before nodding. "Ok. Together."
Perry and Doofenshmirtz only thought for a moment before they heard a smashing noise. They looked over where the sound was, and saw Carl standing over a ton of shattered plastic. He had a smile on his face.
"Give it up already, Doofenshmirtz. We've already destroyed your machine. We just destroyed that remote! What else is there?" Carl asked. Doofenshmirtz glared at him for a moment before realizing something. As soon as he did, he laughed at Carl as if he were stupid or something.
"I still have the main part of my plan. As long as I still have my plane, I refuse to give up." he told Carl, smiling cruelly at him.
"Well then, I'll accept your surrender now." Carl said, smiling back.
"Why would I surrender to you?" Doofenshmirtz asked, truly confused.
"The same reason I'm going to duck now." Carl replied, ducking as he said that.
As soon as he finished saying that, an explosion came from behind Doofenshmirtz. He was thrown into the air, landing in front of Carl and Perry, who had appeared beside him, singing slightly, but otherwise unscratched.
"So, what were you saying, Doofenshmirtz?" Carl asked, smiling victoriously.
"Fine, you win! Congratulations for beating me yet again. Just take me into headquarters or whatever already!" Doofenshmirtz snapped at them, surrendering readily. He just couldn't believe that even his best plan failed horribly.
Thanks for reading my story, everyone. It really means a lot to me, knowing that people enjoy reading my story :D. I hope you watch for other stories of mine.
