Chapter 32: The Conclusion
This chapter was written by Amanda and Michelle
The room remains silent with shock.
Carly: Let's not have everyone jump for joy at once
Luke: I'm still waiting for the punchline
Carly: I'm serious, Luke
Bobbie: (hugging Carly) Congratulations, honey
Gia: Yeah, congrats you two
Carly and Zander sigh in relief
Bobbie: Carly, I want you to tell me something
Carly: It depends. What do you want to know?
Bobbie: Since when have you and Zander been dating?
Laura: Good Question
Zander: Long enough
Luke: Well, that answers all of MY burning questions!
Gia: (smiling at Carly) You better show me that ring, girl!
All of the women crowd around Carly and her left hand. Lucky walks over to Zander.
Lucky: Marriage, huh?
Zander: I don't know. I figure. . . love is love. Why not make it legal?
Lucky: Yeah. . . but CARLY?
Zander: Watch it.
Lucky: (laughs) okay
Zander: I haven't seen you in awhile. Well, at least not in any bars. . . Does that mean things are good?
Lucky: (glancing at Gia) You have no idea
Zander: Have you thought about popping the question?
Lucky: WHOA MAN! You asked Carly to marry you and now what? (laughing) Tag! I'm it? It's my turn to make a life long committment?
Zander: I'm serious
Lucky: Honestly? No. I haven't thought about asking Gia to marry me. Not once. Especially not right now. Because: 'a' she was still attached to Nikolas and 'b' she just told me today that she loves me
Zander: Oh, well at least she fessed up
Lucky: Yeah, thank God! I was about to throw myself in front of a speeding train!
Lucky: Hey, man, I'll be back in a few. Good luck with Carly.
Zander: Thanks, I'll need it
Nikolas walks up behind Gia and taps her shoulder. She turns around to look at him.
Nikolas: We need to talk
Gia: Yeah, we do.
Gia follows Nikolas out of the room into the vending area. They walk in on Lucky standing next to the machine with the Snickers bar that is still lodged in the bars.
Lucky: Fifty. . . Sixty. . Sixty-Five cents!!! ALRIGHT!
He looks up to see Nikolas and Gia.
Lucky: Oh. . . sorry. I'm interrupting. I'll come back later.
Nikolas leans against the machine and the candy bar falls into the dispenser.
Lucky: MY SNICKERS BAR! YES! (he grabs it and leaves)
Nikolas: (smiling nervously after Lucky leaves) Did you tell Lucky we broke up?
Gia: (smiling back) No. . . but I think he got it
Gia: Well.. . I suppose he knew something was wrong when I wasn't in any hurry to check on how you were doing about Lulu
Nikolas: I guess I kinda brushed you off earlier on the phone. . .
Gia: Nikolas, when I called you back I just wanted to make sure you were okay
Nikolas: And I acted like a jerk
Gia: You were upset
Nikolas: I'm sorry, Gia
Gia: It's fine, Nikolas. It's okay.
There is a long pause
Nikolas: So. . .did you tell him that you love him yet?
Gia looks at him stunned.
Nikolas (looking at the floor occasionally): Well, I'm not stupid, Gia. . . I've seen the way you two look at each other
Gia: (trying to explain) Nikolas. . .
Nikolas: Come on! You think I didn't even know when we ran into Lucky at Kelly's?
Gia: (slightly embarrassed) I guess I was just being too self-conscious to notice anything else.
Nikolas: (smiling) I know you better than you think I do, Sparky
Nikolas: So did you?
Gia: Did I what?
Nikolas: Did you tell Lucky that you love him?
Gia: (beaming) Yeah
Nikolas: Well, good for you. . . and good for him
Nikolas: Anyway. . . I'm leaving. I'm going to have Wyndemere remodeled to be "family friendly."
Gia: Avoid Barney
Nikolas: (laughing) Thanks for the tip. (he takes her hand) I hope you two are happy.
Gia: Thank you. It means a lot.
Lucky comes down the hall and sees Nikolas leave.
Lucky: So. . . what happened?
Gia: (matter of factly) He knows
Lucky: What did he say?
Gia: (smiling secretively) He'll live
Lucky: (confused) Good. (he shakes his head) Hey listen--
Gia grabs his face and kisses him.
Lucky: (pulling away slowly) Not that I'm complaining, but what was that for?
Gia: No reason. . . what were you saying?
Lucky: Carly is having a big bash at her club. Do you want to go?
Gia: With you? I don't know. . . I'll have to check my calendar. . . I'm soooo wanted these days--
Lucky kisses her
Gia: (pulling away) What was that for?
Lucky: To shut you up, Campbell
Gia: (with her best diva stance) Well, that's no way to get a date
Lucky: (mimicking her gestures) Do you want to go or not?
Gia: Of course I do
Lucky: Good. Let's go. I'll drop you off at your place, you can get ready, and I'll pick you up later.
Gia: Sounds great to me
In the car. . .
Gia checks her voice mail
Jason: Gia. Hey, it's Jason. I just wanted to let you know that Elizabeth gave birth a little while ago. . . it's a little boy. . . She's fine. . . Elizabeth's sleeping a lot though. We haven't thought of any names yet. I'll have Elizabeth call you later. Bye.
Gia smiles and looks at Lucky. He sees her smile and smiles back, taking a hold of her hand.
Lucky: You okay?
Gia: (squeezing his hand) Estatic.
Looking for a place to land
Looking for a friend to call
Looking for a destination, conversation, fascination
To protect us from the fall
Looking for the one to love
Looking for a brand new day
Looking for a reason to stand
Looking for a place to land
