"Ah, Margaret, there is one place I've been especially excited to show you!"

"Come on, Gumball, haven't you shown us enough of this place?" groaned Mordecai.

"Mordecai!" Margaret threw her hands up.

"This is the last part of the tour, I promise." said Gumball looking into Margaret's eyes. "It is also the most special."

"You guys go ahead. I'm going to try to find a way back to out world." Mordecai said. He stomped away and turned a corner, but stopped when he heard Gumball say, "Yes. Finally it is just the two of us."

Mordecai turned bright red. "Who the h does he think he is!" He peeped around the corned and watched as Gumball lifted his hand.

"Shall we?"

Margaret giggled and took his hand. "Lead the way!"

The prince kissed her hand and took her through a large doorway.

"Ugh! I hate that guy!" said Mordecai to himself. He kicked the wall.

"Jealous, are we?" said a voice suddenly.

Mordecai jumped. "Hunh? Who said that!"

"Down here."

The tall blue jay looked down and saw Peppermint Maid.

"Oh, hi. I didn't see you there."

"Don't worry about them. Gumball has his eye on a different girl." she said.

"What? Who?"

"Her name is Fionna. He's crazy for her. Trust me." she reassured.

"I don't know… He was sure getting friendly with Margaret.."


"Okay Margaret. Open your eyes!"

Margaret uncovered her face and smiled. "It's beautiful, Gumball!" she exclaimed.

The two looked out upon the entire candy kingdom. Everything was brightly colored, and the candy people roamed happily around. It was surrounded by cotton candy trees, and beyond that were mountains. Bubbles floated about, and everything was happy.

"This balcony is my favorite place in the entire castle. I always come here to collect my thoughts…or just enjoy the sunshine." he said.

"Wow, I never knew a place like this existed! I can't wait to tell Eileen about this when I get back."

Gumball went quiet, then said "Why must you leave? Don't you like it here?"

"I love it here! But I have to get back to my friends." she explained.

"But see all this land? All of it could be yours." he said.

"What do you mean?" she asked.

Gumball clapped his hands. "Peppermint maid!"

The short, round maid appeared in the doorway. "Yes, Prince Gumball?"

"Play us a song!" he cheered.

Within a few moments, Peppermint Maid had retrieved a music player.

"Track 4!" said Gumball.

A slow song played. It was very different from what Margaret was used to back home. Gumball put one hand on her waist and with the other moved her hand on his shoulder. They began to dance slowly. Gumball smiled sweetly at her. She was only able to blush.

"I-uh" she started.

"Today has been lovely, hasn't it, Margaret?" said Gumball gracefully spinning her around.

"yeah, I wanted to thank you for helping me and Mordecai out." she said.

"It was my pleasure. I'm happy I got to meet such a lovely girl."

He pulled her in close and looked deep into her eyes. Margaret moved her face closer to his, and his gaze drifted towards her lips. They held that position, and gumboil said quietly, "Close your eyes, princess."

Margaret did so, and Gumball kissed her passionately
