Casper's Scare School Fanfiction: He Loves Me, She Loves Me Not - 6. Epilogue
After all of the chaos and general disaster that was the play, it was about time Scare School had a chance to cool off and relax, and what better place for that than the school dance? Wolfie had the music turned up loud, and everyone was having a toe-tapping, punch-drinking good time. Still, something odd was missing from this puzzle.
“Too bad Thatch didn’t come,” said Mosshead.
“He said he had something more important to do,” replied Slither.
“What could be more important than dancing the night away with your friends,” wondered Dummygirl.
Little did they know, Thatch was there, but he was outside with Carly in an area where they couldn’t be seen, having a private dance party of their own.
“Whoa, Thatch, you’ve got some moves,” Carly said, giggling, “I’m not saying they’re good moves, but-“
“Hey, you’re one to talk, Miss Stumbled-After-One-Step,” Thatch retorted.
Casper and Ra were standing just a few feet away, leaned against the wall. They told themselves they were “keeping lookout” to make sure no one else saw them, but that was clearly code for “spying.”
“Y’know, in a weird way,” said Casper, “they’re actually kinda cute together.”
It truly was hard to believe that the couple dancing and laughing together in the corner had absolutely hated each other just the other day.
Suddenly, the music began to slow down, and Carly lit up like a firework. “I love this song,” she beamed.
Thatch knelt down in front of her and held out a hand. “May I have this dance?”
“Of course you may.”
As they swayed to the rhythm, Thatch couldn’t help listening to the lyrics. He felt like they were telling Carly everything he wanted to say for him. The song told her if she was ever upset and in need of a friend, Thatch was the one to count on. He would always be there to dry her tears or catch her when she falls. With her, he felt like a completely different person.
“I love you, Blood Breath.”
“You know he owes us money, right,” Ra said as they kissed.
“We can get it from him later,” Casper told him, “Let him have this moment.”
“Hope you guys are enjoying the show over there,” Thatch suddenly shouted, not taking his eyes off of Carly.
“Is it too much to ask for some privacy around here,” she added.
Casper and Ra took the hint, delivering their excuses that Mantha and Harpy might be wondering where they are. “Now, where were we,” Thatch asked, and the two lovebirds held onto each other through the end of the song.
I will stand by you
I will help you through
When you’ve done all you can do
And you can’t cope
I will dry your eyes
I will fight your fight
I will hold you tight
And I won’t let go
What, no, I’m not crying! I’ve just got some feels in my eye.
I honestly never thought I’d make it this far. I hope you all enjoyed it, and are looking forward to more Carly and Thatch in the future (and if you’re not, well, too bad, you’re gettin’ it anyway ).
