Perryshmirtz Ch17Perry took the stairs one at a time, dreading the moment when he would inevitably reach the bottom. He took as long as he possibly could on the stairs, and he knew Phineas was watching and silently cheering him on.
"You can do this, Perry" Phineas whispered to his pet
Perry looked up and forced up a smile
"I hope so" he squeaked
Phineas offered a sympathetic smile and sat back, and Perry turned to face forward, continuing his slow descent on the stairs.
When the monotreme finally reached the bottom he walked over to the couch, and Heinz wasn't there anymore.
"Heinz?" he called softly
"I'm out here, Perry the platypus"
Perry turned and looked outside, and the evil-scientist-turned-platypus was standing just under the tree. He slowly walked outside to join him, closing the sliding door behind himself. He stopped when he was beside the brown platypus and smiled wea
Perryshmirtz Ch18"Perry" Phineas softly called
Perry looked down and ssmiled at his owner
"Hey Phineas" he greeted "What's up?"
"Ferb and I were going to order a pizza. Do you and Heinz want some?"
"Sure" he smiled "What are we getting on it?"
"We were just going to get pepperonni" he shrugged "Is that okay with you two?"
"Fine by me" he replied "Heinz?"
"Yes, that's fine"
"Okay" Phineas replied, turning to walk back in the house "I'll call you when the food is here"
With that said the redhead walked inside and closed the sliding door gently behind himself. Perry turned and looked at Heinz, a small smile forming.
"So" he stated "What's going on tonight? I just want to clear this up, since I'm new to this"
Heinz choked on his breath and blushed
"Wh-What do you mean?"
"We don't have to... um... you know... do things?"
Heinz's eyes were wide and shocked, his blush a furious red
"N-No Perry the platypus" he choked out "No we don't, we don't do that until farther into our relationship"
Perry sighed in relie
Perryshmirtz Ch15The day had slowly progressed, both platypi were silent most of the day, too busy watching their soap operas. That is, until the power went out.
"Brad... I have a confession to make... I... I'm-" the screen went black, followed by the lights turning off.
"NO!" they both screamed "You're what Angela! You're what!?"
They heard laughing and glanced over at the door to see a flashlight beam.
"Of course the power goes out when we get home"
"I'm sure we can occupy ourselves" Ferb whispered into the redheads ear
Phineas' cheeks immediately lit up a furious red, and he coughed nervously before saying
"Who wants to play a board game?!"
Perry shrugged, as did Heinz and Phineas grinned eagerly
"go get candles and light them, I'll get a game"
They played board games for hours, as some point adding liquor into the mix, until they were all bored and hammered.
Well, Except Phineas. Ya know, because he's pregnant. Phineas and Ferb had gone upstairs a few minutes earlier, as proved by the sound of a be
Perryshmirtz Ch14Perry woke up the next morning to something warm against his side. He opened his eyes and was beak to beak with a sleeping Heinz.
He immediately turned red and tried to shift away, but was blocked by Phineas' chest.
Phineas twitched slightly but made no other movement.
Perry froze when Heinz shifted slightly, a yawn escaping him. The brown platypus' eyes opened and widened when he saw their beaks touching and the ever shocked and blushing Perry.
He immediately pushed himself away and fell off the bed with a startled yell, grabbing the blanket on the way. Perry yelled in shock as he was yanked off the bed with the blanket and landed on top of Heinz before the blanket landed over them.
Both platypus' cheeks turned red and grinned nervously.
"uh..." Perry rasped
"heh...." Heinz chuckled nervously
There was a groan, followed my a bunch of giggles and a 'what?'. Moments later more laughter was heard and Perry groaned, throwing the blanket off of them.
"Calm down we weren't doing anything! W
Perryshmirtz Ch1"Perry the platypus what are you doing here!?" Heinz exclaimed, looking over from his recliner as Perry walked in the door, closing it behind him. Heinz watched curiously as Perry pulled something out of his hat and reached into his mouth, before putting something in his ear.
"Doctor D" he said softly
Heinz's eyes flew open in shock
"Perry the Platypus! You- You talk!?"
"translator" he informed the man, slowly approaching
Heinz moved away and raised an eyebrow
"what are you doing here?" he asked again, warily watching the monotreme
Perry sighed heavily, before taking off his hat and frowning
"Heinz.. I... I wont be your nemesis anymore"
Heinz' eyes flew open in shock
"what! why?" He demanded
"this relationship has gotten..." the platypus trailed off, placing his hat back on his head and climbing up into the doctors lap. "I cant do it..." he trailed off
"Heinz..." he trailed off again. Taking a deep breath he sighed "look... Doctor D, this relationship is... no
Perryshmirtz Ch5"what about us?" Heinz asked, his brow furrowing in utter confusion
Perry reached over and placed his small hand over the evil genious' larger one.
"Heinz..." he trailed off "Heinz I love you"
"Love?" Heinz squeaked, his face turning red and his expression completely bewildered
'For an genious he isn't very bright' Perry thought to himself before saying
"Love. I'm in love with you, Heinz"
Heinz stared at the platypus in bewildered shock, completely floored that his now ex-nemesis was telling him this.
"is..." he coughed "is that why you stopped bing my nemesis?"
"I didn't want to keep having to hurt you..." he trailed off and stood "thanks for listening"
Heinz watched in a confused silence as Perry headed for the door
"Perry the platypus, you're just leaving?" Heinz finally asked when Perry grasped the doorknob.
Perry turned and looked back at him, and Heinz could easily tell that the platypus was shocked he had asked that.
The man stood and slowly approached the platypus,
Perryshmirtz Ch11They walked for quite some time, until Heinz finally sighed
"what did we need to talk about, Perry the platypus?"
"I was talking to Ferb.... and.... he said..." Perry took a deep breath "he said I should find out how you feel about m-" he stopped speaking, yanking off his hat and the ear piece of his translator. He chirped and Heinz stood in silence beside him.
"excuse me sir" the nurse said "he cant be in here" she jabbed a finger towards Perry
Heinz nodded and scooped him up, and left the building. When they were outside Perry put his hat back on and placed the earpiece back on. He sighed heavily and Heinz stared at him in silence before finally saying
"He told you to find out my feelings for you, didn't he?"
Perry nodded slowly, staring nervously up at the evil doctor.
Heinz remained silent for a moment, before staring down at him and sighing
"you say you love me?" Perry nodded slowly and Heinz chuckled softly "took you long enough to admit it" Perry looked shocked and confused and
Perryshmirtz Ch7Perry woke to Phineas yelping and shoting out of bed. The monotreme hit the floor with a grunt and immediately chased after Phineas while a completely flabbergasted Ferb jumped to his feet and followed.
When he reached the bathroom Phineas was laying on the floor groaning in pain, while Perry rubbed a damp cloth over his forehead and brushed his hair out of his face.
"Phineas are you okay?" Ferb immediately asked, dropping to his knees beside the redhead
Phineas groaned and opened his mouth to reply, instead lurching up and being violently sick in the toilet.
He groaned as he dropped back to the ground again and Perry cleaned off the boys mouth.
"god...." Phineas rasped "Ferb help me back to-" he grunted softly in pain "-to bed?"
Ferb immediately stood and helped the boy to his feet. Perry followed, pretending to be mindless until they were closed into their room once again. He climbed onto the bed and looked down at Phineas.
He opened his mouth to speak when he watch beepe
Perryshmirtz Ch4"thanks Phineas" he whispered
Phineas grinned at him
"no need to thank me Perry" he paused "after all, if I reacll, you gave me quite a few pep talks before I finally confessed to Ferb" he grinned "Its high time I returned the favor"
Perry grinned at him, and Phineas cupped the platypus' cheek gently
"you should go see him, Perry" he said gently
Perry bit his beak.
"I... I don't think thats a good idea" Perry frowned
"think with your heart Perry" Phineas said gently "not your head" he ruffled his pets fur "your head tells you what others will think. Your heart tells you what you really feel"
Perry nodded slowly
"and honestly, who cares what people think" Phineas grinned "as long as you're happy, we're happy"
Ferb nodded, and Perry stood, gently climbing off Phineas' bloated stomach and hugging them tight.
He jumped off the bed, grabbed his fedora, tipped it at them, and disappeared.
"thats our boy" he whispered and Ferb nodded
"that is indeed"
Perry stared up at the
Finding Love Chp 13The next morning, I was awoken by a slight nudging on my left arm. When I opened my eyes, the sunlight from the windows blinded me, and I had a mini-heart attack thinking I'd slept in and was going to be late for school. But when I tried to sit up, I was painfully reminded of why I wasn't going to school. It hurt even worse today than it did yesterday.
"Whoa, Heinz, slow down," I heard Ms. Flynn say as she put a hand on my shoulder, trying to hold me down. "I don't know if Perry told you, but I'm taking you to the doctor's this morning, so you're not going to school." She checked her watch briefly before continuing. "It's about 9:30 now, and your appointment is at 10. We should probably get there a little early, so why don't you put on this shirt," she handed me a shirt that she must have gotten from my room, "and then we can go."
I nodded, taking the shirt from her. She helped me sit up slowly, removing the ice bags that were still on my stomach as she did so. I attempted to put the s
Finding Love Chp 2I didn't see Perry again until third hour. I hardly even noticed I went to second hour. I was too busy daydreaming and doodling things about Perry. I know that he's straight, but it's okay to dream, right? It wasn't like I was going to make a move or anything...
Anyways, I sat down at my lab table in science class, ready to tune out a lecture and continue doodling, when I heard his laughter down the hall. It was a cheerful sound the resonated throughout the classroom. I immediately stopped what I was doing, and looked up. As he walked into the room, I was sort of depressed by what I saw.
He was still with that kid from first hour (he never outright teased me until today, so I never bothered to remember his name). But now, he was also surrounded by the other kids from that group. All of them were in my science class as well, so it was becoming increasingly unlikely that Perry would want to be anywhere near me.
However, I'd forgotten about a lovely thing called assigned seating, which wa
Finding Love Chp 3The next morning when I woke up, all I could think about was Perry. That's all the had been on my mind since I first laid eyes on him, and I couldn't stop thinking about him. So, after taking a very cold shower, I got dressed in the best looking clothes I could that wouldn't make it seem I was trying to hard. I hopped down the stairs with glee, told my parents what I would be doing tonight, then set off for school in the happiest mood I'd been in in a long time.
Tonight was the night I was going over Perry's house. I was going to spend all day with him at school and then I was going to spend most of the night with him. It was a huge victory in the quest to spend every waking minute with him. Yea, sure, we'd be doing tutoring as well, but that seemed infinitesimal to the fact that I would get to be alone with him, without anybody else around to bother us.
Perry caught me right before I was about to enter the school. We had arrived at the same time, but I failed to notice him walking rig
Finding Love Chp 7People around me usually identified me as "quiet". And they were right. I was always aware of my surroundings, and the audience of the people I was talking to. I wouldn't talk if the person didn't care about what I was saying. And because the number of people who actually cared about what I said was none, I usually remained quiet.
But not with Perry. With him, I knew that he paid extra special attention to every single word I said, even if it was the stupidest thing in the world. I was allowed to just talk, and that freedom meant the world to me.
Perry was the first person to conquer the word barrier that I had unknowingly put up against the world. And because of this, we became better friends than I could have ever hoped for. We talked to each other about everything - school, families, movies - you name it. He knew everything about my life and I knew everything about his. And it felt amazing.
We hung out so much after that. I still helped him with his Chemistry (and some of his other
Finding Love Chp 8'How could you have been so stupid! Why did you have to go and kiss him! Everything would have been fine if you had just remained friends. Then you could live your normal life with the greatest person you've ever known. But no, you had to go and kiss him. Now, instead of a friend, you have guilt, sadness, and loneliness to fill the void!'
These were the kinds of thoughts that ran through my head constantly after the incident. I was a roller-coaster of emotions. I was sad because I'd probably just lost my best friend, I was angry with myself for having to go and kiss him, but most of all, I was confused. I was confused because Perry - even if it was just for a few moments - was kissing me back. And doing a pretty damn good job of it, too.
Did this mean that he liked me back? Or was he just caught up in the moment, sort of like I was, and forgot exactly who he was kissing? It was so hard to tell.
The morning after the incident, I woke up wishing that it was all just
Finding Love Chp 9"Uhmm.... Heh heh..." Smooth, Heinz.
"Umm... Heinz... W-what are you doing here?" Perry asked tentatively.
I took a deep breath, trying to calm myself. "Well, haha, funny story, umm--"
"Heinz!!" Perry's mom suddenly appeared in the doorway, all bright and cheerful like she usually is. "Where have you been?! I haven't seen you in forever!"
I tried to focus all my energy into telling Ms. Flynn the story, trying to do my best to ignore Perry so I could actually speak a coherent sentence. "Well, Ms. Flynn... I got kicked out..." My voice wavered on the last part, the reality of it finally hitting me. I almost had to sit down.
Ms. Flynn noticed right away, and immediately stepped outside, grabbed what little belongings I was carrying, and swept me into the house. It happened so fast that even Perry was caught off guard, and suddenly we were bumping shoulders as Ms. Flynn gently pushed me into the house. It sent a light spark of electricity up my arm, a feeling I hadn't felt since we'
Finding Love Chp 10We spent a few more hours up in Perry's secret hiding place, the place he hadn't shown anyone except me. We just talked and laughed, just trying to get reacquainted with each other after being apart for so long. It was so nice to hear his voice and see his wonderful smile again. It made me wonder how I had survived so long without it.
After a while, though, I noticed I was starting to get hungry. I realized I hadn't eaten breakfast that morning, as Perry and I had left to get here so quickly. I didn't want to say anything about it, as I was content to just sit here with him forever. But my stomach apparently had other plans, as it let out a huge grumble in the middle of Perry talking.
He paused, and I looked at him shyly. "Sorry."
He laughed. "Haha, no problem. I'm actually getting hungry, too. Neither of us had breakfast this morning. Let's go back to town and get some lunch."
Perry stood up first, then held his hand out to help me up, which I took. We walked back to his car, got in,
Finding Love Chp 5After learning that Perry's brothers were secretly genius engineers trapped in little bodies, it was time to go home. The sun was already starting to set over our little town as it slowly got later and later. By the time I had said goodbye to Perry's family, it was already 9 o'clock. Time just flew by.
Perry walked me to the front door after I had said goodbye to everybody else. He smiled at me and said, "Well, thanks for everything! You really are a great tutor!"
I laughed. "You're welcome. It's no big deal. Whenever you need help, just ask."
He nodded. "Alright, I will." He then paused, as if he remembered something, then asked, "Hey, do you need a ride home? I don't see your parents out there."
"Oh, haha..." I laughed nervously. Nobody was coming to pick me up. "It's okay. I'll just walk home. I don't live to far from here either." Truth was I lived at least two miles, if not more, down the road - a long distance to be walking in the dark. But I didn't want Perry to know that. I did
Finding Love Chp 6The next morning, when I woke up, I felt sick to my stomach. I didn't want to go to school, but I knew that I would be in a bigger world of trouble if I didn't. So I managed to pull myself out of bed and get ready for the day.
Luckily, there was nobody else home, as my mother and father had already left for work - my mother dropping off my brother at day care first. I slowly put my clothes on and forced myself to eat something, even though it felt like I would throw it up. I looked in the mirror and - just as I thought - there was a large bruise right under my left eye. Today was not going to be a good day.
When the bus arrived, I walked on and sat down in my own seat, staring out the window and willing the voices of the other kids on the bus to go away. I wanted to be left alone, in my own little world, away from everything. But when you go to a public school with two thousand other kids, that's physically impossible.
When I got off the bus, I noticed Perry was waiting by the door, se
Perryshmirtz Ch16Perry panted heavily, his hand over his heart as he leaned against the wall. His skin under his fur was beet red and he swallowed heavily.
"Oh god" he breathed "Oh god. Oh lord. What have I done?"
The platypus put his head in his hands as he leaned against the wall, and he heard the bedroom door open beside him. Phineas walked out and looked down at the platypus
"I thought I heard you out here" he smiled softly, taking a seat beside his pet "What's wrong?"
Perry offered no verbal response, instead he looked up at Phineas with wide and pitiful brown eyes as he held out his arms. Phineas frowned, worry filling his sapphire eyes as he gently reached over and picked up the platypus.
He rested the platypus on his bloated stomach as he hugged him and pressed a gentle kiss to the top of his head
"What's wrong?" he asked again
"I- Well... What I mean is..." he looked up at Ph
