Author's Chapter Notes:

In which our story comes to an end... for now...

 

Once Rachel had been revived with lavender water, and everyone had finished Ooohing and Ahhhing over the fact that Froggy had turned out to be the long-lost Prince Finn Charming, Finn turned to Chris and Darren.  “The Fairy Godfather thanked me for bringing you guys here, and he said he knows how to send you home.  He’ll be here in a minute.”

 

“Wow,” Darren breathed.  “This has been such a magical trip.  I don’t know if I’m ready to go back yet.  How about you, Chris?”

 

Chris felt a swirl of emotions that left him dizzy.  He gazed at Darren, unable to formulate a reply.

 

When Chris’s silence stretched on a little too long, Darren began to sing:

 

Do you hear me?

I'm talking to you

Across the water across the deep blue ocean

Under the open sky, oh my, baby I'm trying

 

Finding his voice, Chris came in with the next verse.

 

Boy I hear you in my dreams

I feel your whisper across the sea

I keep you with me in my heart

You make it easier when life gets hard

 

Taking each other’s hands, Chris and Darren sang the chorus together.

 

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend

Lucky to have been where I have been

Lucky to be coming home again

Ooohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

 

Darren pulled Chris into an impromptu dance on the next verse.

 

They don't know how long it takes

Waiting for a love like this

Every time we say goodbye

I wish we had one more kiss

I'll wait for you I promise you, I will

 

Chris smiled into Darren’s eyes as they swayed in each other’s arms. 

 

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend

Lucky to have been where I have been

Lucky to be coming home again

Lucky we're in love in every way

Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed

Lucky to be coming home someday

 

Chris forgot all about their audience, losing himself in the sound of Darren’s voice.

 

And so I'm sailing through the sea

To an island where we'll meet

You'll hear the music fill the air

I'll put a flower in your hair

 

Darren twirled Chris out and then reeled him back in, running the fingers of one hand through Chris’s hair.

 

Though the breezes through trees

Move so pretty you're all I see

As the world keeps spinning 'round

You hold me right here, right now

 

As they sang the final chorus, Chris let the joy he was feeling bubble up out of him.

 

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend

Lucky to have been where I have been

Lucky to be coming home again

I'm lucky we're in love in every way

Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed

Lucky to be coming home someday

Ooohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

 

The sound of applause snapped Chris and Darren out of their reverie.  Tearing their eyes away from each other, they discovered that their audience had grown.  The Fairy Godfather stood before them.

 

Chris blinked twice.  “Ryan?”

 

“You always said I was your Fairy Godfather.”

 

“But –”

 

“We'll have plenty of time to discuss everything,” Ryan said, with a significant look from Chris, to Darren, and back again, “once you’re back where you belong.”

 

Ryan waved his wand, and a door appeared in the middle of the room.

 

“So,” he asked, “where would you like this door to lead?”

 

Chris gave Darren a long look.  “My house?”

 

Darren squeezed his hand, nodding.

 

“As you wish,” Ryan said, flourishing his wand once more.

 

Chris placed his hand on the doorknob.  With one last, fond look around at the assembled crowd, he and Darren stepped through the doorway together.

 

And they lived Gleefully ever after.

 

 

Stay tuned for The Land of Stories 2: Gleeful Days Are Here Again… and, eventually, The Land of Stories 3: A Very Gleeful Threequel…

 

Chapter End Notes:

 

I’d like to thank you all for reading, especially those of you who took the time to write reviews.  I wouldn’t have finished this without you.

Thanks again for your support!   <3

P.S.  For all of you who were speculating about the identity of the Fairy Godfather, Chris made it perfectly clear that there was only ever one real contender: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pn0OgB-Qa8o&feature=youtu.be&t=1m48s
