10. Home (Final Chapter)

Lifty entered his old run-down house, noticing how truly different it felt and looked from Flaky's house. Her walls were painted a white-blue and were spotlessly clean, while his walls were covered with a peeling browned wallpaper and a lot of cracks. Her couch was soft and always smelled freshly clean, while his couch was old, worn out and smelled of sweat and old food. Flaky's house was always clean and well-organized, his house was... .well it looks like a tornado went through it every day.

This may have been his house, the one that he lived in his whole life.

But it wasn't home. . .

Home was where Flaky was and he destroyed any chance of getting her back. He made his way to the phone hanging on the wall, dialing Flaky's phone number, but it went to voicemail, so he left her a message.

"Hey, Flaky  It's Lifty, I just wanted to say something, even though I know you hate me. I would never do anything to hurt you. You were the first person to show me any form of kindness and I took that for granted, I was rude to your friends, even downright mean to them. They didn't deserve it and neither did you. I'm sorry for everything I did. And I need to say something I probably should've said before. I...I love you, Flaky", Lifty then hung and sat down on his old-worn couch, running a shaky hand through his forest-green hair.

God, he screwed up this time, huh?

It took Flaky and Giggles a little over an hour to clean up the disaster zone that once was their party area. It took even longer for Flaky to stop crying and form a full sentence to her enraged friend, "I c-can't believe he would do s-something like this. . ."

"Well, I can. He was and always will be a no-good crook." Giggles growled, still angry at the thief's actions.

Giggles soon left after making sure her friend wasn't going to have another crying fit, which then left Flaky alone. She walked back to her house and saw her phone was blinking, so she grabbed it to see why. It was voicemail. . .from Lifty. She thought about deleting it but decided not to. So she pressed it to see what he had said.

BEEP!

"Hey, Flaky It's Lifty, I just wanted to say something, even though I know you hate me. I would never do anything to hurt you. You were the first person to show me any form of kindness and I took that for granted, I was rude to your friends, even downright mean to them. They didn't deserve it and neither did you. I'm sorry for everything I did. And I need to say something I probably should've said before. I...I love you, Flaky".

BEEP!

Flaky was speechless. Did he really love her? She was overwhelmed with a lot of emotions at once. Happiness, anxiety, even sadness. She had done this. This was her fault.

And now she was going to fix it.

But first, she made a call, after that she got into her car and sped down to Lifty's house.

She made it to Lifty's house, which was all the way on the side of town. She got out of her car and knocked on the door. It took several knocks for the door to open and Shifty appeared in the doorway, "Yea, what the hell do you-", he stopped his remark as he saw who it was, "Flaky? What are you doing here?".

"I-I need to see L-Lifty. Is he here?"

"Yea, he's in the living room, c'mon", he walked back in the house, motioning for her to follow, so she did. They made their way to the run-down house and soon found their way into the living room. They found the other twin, half-asleep in a daze, watching television static. Flaky walked up to him, "L-Lifty?".

He noticed her, eyes wide as though he couldn't believe that she was actually here, "Flaky?", he said, uncertainly.

"I heard the message y-you left and I want you to come back. Please. I'm sorry I-I ever thought you would do something like that. And... .I-I love you too", Flaky blushed lightly as she said the last part, "Will you come back with me?"

Lifty didn't say a single word, he just got up and pulled her into a kiss. She kissed him back and when they broke the kiss, she smiled, "Is that a yes?"

He smiled back, "Yes, it is."

So after grabbing a few personal items of his, Lifty and Flaky left to go back to her house.

Before Lifty got out of the car as they made it back to her house, Flaky stopped him, "Wait here for... .10 minutes. Okay?"

"Um... .okay?" 

"Good!", Flaky got out the car and dashed into her house. Ten minutes had passed soon after and Lifty got out of the car, wondering why the redhead made him wait in the car.

His question was answered with a thunderous, "SURPRISE! ! !"

Everyone in town was crammed into Flaky's small living room with Flaky in the middle of them, holding a cake which read, "Welcome Home, Lifty!" in frosting letters.

That phone call Flaky had made earlier? It was to Giggles, who was told everything Lifty had said and she was soon convinced to help throw a surprise welcome-home party for Lifty.

Lifty smiled, smiling bigger than he ever had.

Why?  

Because he realized where he was now, with Flaky and with everyone else.

He was. . .

Home. <3
