"Okay, Ferb. So what we need is money. A LOT of money. Do you know-?"
Ferb turned his piggy bank and shook him to empty the table. With a grin, he took Phineas' piggy bank too, and shook it empty.
"Well, i guess that... How many money is that?"
Ferb picked up a calculator, and showed Phineas the number on the screen.
"Ferb... Are you serious? We don't have that much, do we?"
On the screen insisted $ 1.900.
Ferb nodded. "We really have. $ 540 from you and $ 450 from me."
"Sweet! Maybe that Candace also has something."
"Phineas, you can barrow max. $ 250 from me. I'll need the rest for your clothing," Candace said when the two brothers asked their sister for money.
"Thanks, Candace! Now we have $ 2.150! That must be enough for snacks, punch and a nice big ballroom," Phineas said.
"Yes, yes it is. I just found something on my laptop," Ferb said.
"You can hire this one for 5 hours, for only $ 800."
"Wow, man, you're going fast!" Phineas said. "Why?"
"Well, i- really like your cousin," Ferb said with a nervous grin. He blushed a little.
"Ferb, you're not telling me that you have a crush on Lucy, do you?" Phineas asked.
"NO! ABSOLUTELY NOT!" Ferb shouted. "I like her as a person, a friend. Nothing more."
"If you say so," Phineas said, and ran to his room to get his stuff.
"Okay, so the party starts at 6:00 PM, and ends at-"
"Hey Phineas, whatcha woooorkin' on?"
"Hi, Lucy..." Phineas said with a nervous grin.
"We didn't expect you to be so early!"
"Candace called me that she had a suprise for me," Lucy said. "Now, tell me, what are you two inventing today?"
"Nothing!" Phineas said, and threw the blueprints off the table.
"Oh, you dropped your blueprint," Lucy said and wanted to pick up the blueprint which fell in front of her.
"NO-" Phineas shouted and ran to his cousin to pick up the blueprint before she did.
But he slipped over a blueprint that laid in front of his feet...
He fell, and Lucy tried to catch him.
When Phineas' arms hitted his cousin's shoulders, Phineas felt something on his lips.
He looked up, and...
...It were Lucy's lips!
"Lucy, i thought we would-"
Isabella stood in the opening of the backyard, and screamed.
Ferb gave himself a facepalm.
"Why does this kind of things always need to happen to Phineas... Why..."
Phineas looked aside, and saw his girlfriend. He saw how white her face was, and the tears that were streaming down her cheeks.
Phineas looked uncomfortable from Isabella to Lucy.
How would he rescue himself out of this?
