I wake up in Marshall's arms...Wait-Today we have to meet Gumball! I mean, to find Cake! I gently shake Marshall Lee awake and tell him to get dressed. I do the same and I he offers his hand. Aw...I take his hand he smiles. We walk to PG's castle and, talk about new games, and movies to make fun of the whole way. I love him...He hands me my hat. Huh? Oh, I didn't put it on...I guess I was in a rush to see Gumball.
Marshall and I walk up to the doors of The Candy Kingdom. I ask Peppermint Maid for PG, since we have to look for Cake. She nods and quickly gets Gumball. Marshall grabs my hand and smiles. Gee, I haven't seen PG since, last week maybe? Gumball Comes down and immediately, avoids looking at me. I try to talk to him in the past week, but it only turns out to be short conversations...and then I end up leaving. It's true, I told him no...That must have hurt him though, I didn't mean to hurt his feelings but, he makes me more attracted to him...I don't want to be ignored.
"So, What about Cake?" I ask.
"Um, we could start searching. If Lord Monochromicorn comes back with no clue." PG says.
"He's looking for Cake?" Marshall asks floating upside down.
"He is concerned a lot." PG says simply.
And I'm not?! I don't like to wait, but she's been missing for a long time. I'm guessing she can handle herself, but i'm worried too. I mean, she's magic. She probably shrunk if she was in a cage. I have to tell PG the truth of when I gave up on him, Nothing was getting serious back then, so I gave up. I still don't like him avoiding me...I mean, he's like a brother.
"Marshall, May I speak with PG in private?" I say. He gives me a warning look.
"Don't do anything stupid with dumball." He says floating out of the room.
I look at Gumball and sigh.
"Why did you ask me if I liked you the other day?" I ask.
"...Because," He clears his throat,"I knew you always liked me, and, I only happened to notice now." He says.
"Excuse me? I loved you all these years, but now," I say,"In fact, I gave up on you long ago when I was like, 15."
"W-Well, maybe I just noticed now that you, treat me differently?" He says.
"It's been two years Gumball, now you notice?" I say getting a bit upset.
"Now you get the urge to notice me now?!" I almost yell.
"Calm down, I-I didn't mean..." He stutters.
"So what?" I say.
"W-Well, i'm trying to help you Fionna, remember? Y-You couldn't date Flame Prince cause he couldn't take extreme romance, and Marshall Lee is a vampire." he says.
"So y-you're saying that...Every person I date, I can't have...?" I say looking at the floor.
"Well, i'm a normal prince..." Gumball says.
I look up, and...SMACK! I slap gumball in the face and barge out. I yell at gumball to lump off. And run out of the castle-leaving Marshall...I sprint forward to somewhere I know I can be alone...I keep running until I see the huge hollow tree I hide in when i'm sad. I climb up the branches and jump in the big hole. How could PG just notice me now? When I finally find the one I can be with, there's always a way for Gumball to point out a flaw.
I hear a light knock on the trunk. Hmm? Who could it be? I climb up the little foot-holds I made a while back. I look down and see Gumball. What is he doing here? I see him give me a soft smile. I have to smile a little. He holds out his hand, and helps me down.
"Fionna, I didn't mean to hurt you...I can't express my feelings easily. I'm sorry." He says, gently dusting off a leaf on my hair.
"What do you mean?" I ask.
"I truly, love you Fionna." He says looking at my blue eyes.
Suddenly, Marshall drops on his feet in front of me, facing Gumball...!
I see Gumball back away-Looking terrified. What is Marshall doing here anyway...? ML holds his umbrella and turns around, directly staring at me. I awkwardly blush. He gives me a warning look and grabs my left wrist tightly, flicking my in the forehead with his other hand.
"Ouch!" I say.
"Bad bunny!" Marshall says with an angry expression. "As for you," He says turning to PG, "Let's just say, If you attempt that again, I'll shove my foot up your prissy pink butt." He says gripping my wrist.
Marshall drags me forward, and I feel another hand on my other arm! I look behind and see Gumball is gripping my right arm! Marshall flinches and hisses at PG. What the fudge do I do?! I give Gumball a sad look, and he let's go. Marshall starts to walk with such a tight grip on me, I think he's cutting off my blood circulation. We walk to the tree house without a word spoken.
I get loose of Marshall's clench, and quickly climb up to my room. Marshall follows me up and gives me a mean look. I lay down in my bed. He crouches down beside me, and runs his fingers through the locks of hair I keep out of my hat.
"Why were you with Gumball?" He says calmly.
"I didn't bring him with me," I say, "I got a little mad, and ran off..."
"Then he caught up with you?" He finishes off.
I nod. After some explaining, about how I slapped PG 'n stuff, we hear rumbling downstairs. We hurry down, and see-CAKE?!?! She's all dirty, and cut up!
"Cake!!!" I scream and hug her tightly.
"Fi! Fi!" She says, wincing.
"Oh My Glob! Sorry." I say tearing up.
"Fionna..." She says calming me down.
"Cake, who could have done this to you?!" I say not bothering to look at Marshall. Something laughs behind Cake. I look up and see-
"...Ashley..." Marshall says.
W-What? I instinctively stand up, and grab my brother's sword from the shelf. I look at its features; Gold, with a crimson rhinestone at the end. My older brother, Finn, gave it to me after he settled down with Gumball's older sister. Princess Bubblegum did the same, and let PG take over the Kingdom. I don't exactly know where they are but, Finn is at least 4 years older than me.
I give Ashley a warning. She just scowls, then goes toward me. I stop her, pointing my sword at her nose and she flinches back.
"Calm down girly. I'm doing you a favor." She says flicking the point away.
"How?" I ask, putting down my weapon.
"I happen to come across your cat on my way to choose goose." She says walking over to me, "Ice Queen took her right? I found her, and returned her." She says.
"So you and Marshall thing?" She says looking over at me. She obnoxiously flips her white hair into Marshall's face.
"Lump off!" Marshall shouts.
I slash her black shirt and tell her to get out. She claws and my face-and makes deep cuts on my cheek! I pin her to the floor and hold my sword to her neck. She puts her hands up in surrender, then I let her go. I look at Marshall and he has a sad look on his face.
"You Okay?" I ask him.
"Yeah, i'm fine." He says.
"O-Oh! Cake!" I say not realizing she was here. "Are you okay?"
"Yeah sugar, just a bit sore." She says rubbing a bruise.
"Stay put Marshall, I'll take Cake to a hospital." I say grabbing my furry friend.
Before he can even answer, I sprint all the way to the Candy Kingdom. I look at my thigh and see it's fully healed. Great! I run even faster. I open the doors to the Castle once we arrive. I see Peppermint Maid and catch her attention. She gasps at Cake then I look at my cat. Seems she past out.
"Oh my, come quick!" She says in a squeaky voice.
I follow her to Dr. Pound Cake, and she tells me to step out, leaving Cake...I nod and go outside for some fresh air. Once, I get to the Candy Doors, I-
"Oh dear!" I hear a familiar voice shout as I fall to the floor. Once I gain vision, I see what I bumped into. In a split second, a lump load of papers scatter across the ground.
"Oh glob, I'm sorry!" I say.
"It's fine," I hear a voice say, offering his hand. He helps me up, and we laugh a little.
Once he comes into view after he papers settle down, I recognize him. Flame Prince.
"Whoa, hey FP!" I say joyfully! I haven't seen him in a long time! I think its been, 2 years?
"Hey Fi!" He says with a smile. He notices the scratches on my right cheek and wipes some of the blood away. I feel my face go warm. Glob. We give each other a tight hug. He heats up, I really missed him. After he returned to his Kingdom, he had a lots of responsibilities to attend to. So, he's been gone for a while. I let go of Flame Prince's embrace and pick up a sheet of paper. Once I examine it, It seems to be about yet another Candy Kingdom party. Seems it's Gumball's Birthday!
"Oh, yes, Gumball has planned a party for his Birthday." Flame Prince says picking up a sheet as well.
"How old will he be?" I ask.
"I think, 20." He says with a hint of doubt.
"Oh, Wow. You passing out invites?"
"Yeah, I was actually looking for you." He says. FP must be exhausted.
He asks to take a walk with me, and I happily accept. We walk down Cotton Candy Forest catching up on what happened to each other in the past 2 years. I tell him about Cake and not tell him about Marshall. He tells me about his returning to my area and how I can see him more often! Awesome! We keep talking, and laughing for what feels like a long time. I feel Flame Prince's hand slip through mine. I instantly look at him, and give him a warm smile. He gives me a kiss on the cheek that's not bleeding. I can tell i'm blushing yet again.
He suggests we head back, and I look around and it's dark! Wow, I didn't notice.
Flame Prince walks me home, while I worry about Cake. The Nurse told me I'll have to wait at least a week until my cat is healed.
"Well, goodnight Fionna." FP says handing me an invitation.
"You too Ignitus."
I open the pink invitation and read it on the way to my room. It reads that Gumball is turning 20, and other junk. I turn on a lamp and sit on my bed and read the rest, but when I get to the bottom--FP wrote a little something. It says: "Make sure you come, i'll be attending as well." Then he signed it. I put the note down and smiled to myself. He's my bro, but who I really love, is Marshall Lee. Wait, where's Marshy anyway?
I shrug, he probably went home by now.
Marshall Lee's P.O.V
I hide in the shadows of Fionna's room. Hmm, I'm perverted. I watch her walk off to somewhere else. What's that pink paper on her bed? I come out, and take the note. Humph, I see Dumball's having another Party-Wait! Is Ignitus getting up on Fionna?! I hear foot steps coming from where Fionna left. I put the note back and do my vampire junk and go invisible.
She starts to take off her shirt. I'm guessing she's gonna take a shower.
I take off my shirt and forget to grab some pajamas. I go into my closet and grab short black shorts, and a blue tank top. I start to pull down my skirt, when I hear a familiar sneeze come from a corner. I put on my shirt again and follow from where I heard it. I find a solid form, and slap it.
"Marshall!" I yell in annoyance.
"OW!" he shouts while rubbing his cheek.
"Perv." I say. Well, we did it before but...
"Ha ha, is your cheek healed?" He asks touching the scratches. I wince a little, and he frowns.
"I gotta take a shower," I say getting my clothes,"Shouldn't you get home?"
"Um, Cake is gone right?" He asks. I nod. "I don't trust you home alone, and Cake wouldn't either." He says matter-of-factly.
"I'm lumpin' 17 Marshall." I say opening the bathroom door.
I close-and lock the bathroom door, take a long shower, cleaning all the dirt and blood off my bare skin. After i'm done, It feels so good. I step out of the white-tiled shower, and dry off. I get my clothes on, and go to my room. Forgetting Marshall is here. It's so clogged up in my mind, thinking of a lot of things lately. Like Cake, and Gumball's party.
"Going to sleep princess?" Marshall asks-making me jump.
"Uh, I don't know." I say. Suddenly, he gives me a tight embrace!
"Fionna, Lately Gumball and Flame Prince has had it at you. If they do it again please, remember that you're mine. Only Mine..." He says.
I feel myself blush, probably the same color of ML's eyes. I kiss him passionately, giving him an answer. He turns me around and pins me to the bed.
My thoughts go ballistic. I stop Marshall's lips and get up. Gee, what a good girlfriend I am. I-I've had too much lately. Wow, i'm hungry. I go down to the kitchen. I haven't ate since maybe, 2 days ago? Marshall follows me down, and grabs a strawberry. He sucks out the red and seductively smiles to me. I smile back at him and sit at the table. He hands me the strawberry.
"Everything Okay?" He asks.
"Yeah." I simply say, playing with my white strawberry.
"So, I see you were invited to Gumball's Party, huh? You going?" He says sitting nest to me. Wait. How does he know?
"He's my bro, of course i'm going," I say, "Would you like to come with me?"
"Are you gonna wear a dress?" He says. I roll my eyes, and nod. Do I really have to wear a dress this time?
"Well, I'll go." He laughs.
I wonder what i'll wear. I mean, I never told Cake-Plus, she loves Parties. Especially Gumball's parties. I'll have to tell her tomorrow. Marshall looks at me worried.
"What's wrong?" I ask.
"I'm worried about you Fi. Like you might forget me. 'Cause of Gumbutt, and Flame Prince." He says sadly.
"Marshall. I Love You." I say lovingly.
"I Love You too." He says kissing me on the cheek.
"I'm tired, I gotta get some rest." I say.
"Alright. So we share a bed?" He says with a smirk.
"No funny business." I add. Ha, pervert.
We go to my bed and sleep in each other's arms.
I dreamed about Marshall, and Flame Prince, and Gumball and--Okay, stop Fi. Once my vision clears up, I see Marshall is still sleeping with me in his arms. Aw, he's so cute, I smile to myself. I try to get loose, but Marshall wont seem to let go.
"Bad Bunny." I hear him mumble.
I laugh a little, and kiss him lightly. Once I know he's fast asleep again, I quietly slip out of his embrace. I change into my sky blue shirt, and dark blue skirt. Tonight is Gumball's Party. I gotta tell Cake. I wake Marshall and tell him to come with me. He puts on his red flannel shirt, and converse. I grab a black umbrella, and hand it to him.
We walk to the Candy Kingdom, laughing, and talking. Marshall is so sensitive inside, hard to believe but, he shows that side of him whenever i'm around. We arrive at Cake's room, and I tell her all about Gumball's party. Hmm, I haven't seen Gumball in a while. Probably getting ready for the Party. I hear a knock on he door, and Marshall answers it.
"O-Oh Hey Marshall." I hear Flame Prince's voice say.
