(Finally the last chapter. Amazing how long it takes sometimes to come up with an ending. Keep in mind there might be a sequel… but it will be a spoiler for book 3 with some variations…. If you’re interested in this, read the series first. If nothing else so you can see the ending to the show.)
They stood in a circle.
Willow looked around. “Here’s the thing. The only way to determine if the virus is still there is for you to touch. We can set up a sphere of protection around the part you’ll be touching with. If the virus is there, all we have to do is remove that part.”
Logan and Max looked at each other.
Willow sighed. “Pick which body part you won’t miss.”
“Index finger.” They both said, then smiled slightly.
She nodded. “All we needed was for you to say it, the spell did the rest. So let’s see if you’re safe shall we?”
The two moved their fingers toward each other.
Everyone sat in the living room, minus the two people of the hour.
Xander grinned. “Well that was anti-climatic.”
Sketchy blinked. “Would you rather have fireworks?”
“Nah, too noisy.”
Willow groaned. “Great we have two of him.”
Faith raises an eyebrow.
“Don’t even think about it Hormone!”
On the other side of the house, in a sound proofed bedroom, two close friends were finally getting to know each other better.
A few hours later the group of people was still exchanging stories.
“So you got tied upside down naked by some gangsters you owed money to?” Faith asked Sketchy who was sinking lower and lower in the seat as Cindy told about a few of his antics.
“Girl, you wouldn’t believe the trouble he got into.”
Willow grinned slightly as she shared a look with Xander. “I was right. You do have a twin.”
Xander rolled his eyes. “At least my legacy will continue.”
“Of what? Stupidity?”
“HEY!” Xander and Sketchy both yelled. Then they glared at the two cackling women.
Max and Logan stood on the wide balcony outside the main bedroom. As they watched the setting sun, the strange visitors could be heard bickering in the background. As well as Sketchy’s confused voice.
Max smiled slightly. “Weird isn’t it?”
Logan smiled back. “Wouldn’t be us if it wasn’t.”
”That’s true.” Then she blinked. “I wonder what would have happened if I’d decided not to find my family.”
“There can be such a thing as too much boredom.”
As the two smiled at each other, the commotion behind them continued.
“Dang it Faith! I thought I was kidding when I said you’d bring a clown and water balloons!”
“Oh come on, boy-toy. The carpet isn’t that wet! And you do have dry clothes.”
All good things must come to an end.
