The next month went by quicker than Mark thought it would. With the help of fans they were able to pinpoint where in Ohio Brittany was exactly. So he, Bob & Wade took a flight over there & met Sean at the airport. At finally meeting Sean in person, Mark genuinely smiled for the first time since all this trouble started.
Since Mark had alerted Thomas to them coming to the state of course his older brother had insisted that they stay at the house. The only thing Mark hadn't told him was the reason they were there. He lied saying they were there to make a special video was all. When the house was empty due to school & errands to run, the group sat down to talk about what needed to be done.
"How are we gonna convince Brittany to come anywhere near us?" Mark asked.
"Well, we're not. You are." Bob said simply.
"Think about it, what does she want more than anything?" Bob said.
"Me." Mark frowned not liking this.
"Exactly, she won't come if she knows we're there. But if you some how let her know that you want to meet her privately then I have no doubt she won't be able to resist that offer."
Mark rubbed his forehead taking a deep breath as he nodded. He agreed with Bob, it made sense. He just didn't like the situation of it.
"And me, Bob & Wade'll be hiding till she gets close enough to ya." Jack explained.
"You'll cast the spell & the curse will be reversed." Mark added, "But don't you think she'll be just a little pissed off after that?"
"Well, that's the thing. The spell reverses the curse on ya but it also cancels out whatever powers she has." Jack smiled.
Mark raised his eyebrows, "Really?"
Jack nodded rather pleased with himself.
"Now we just need to figure out how to get her attention." Wade looked at the other three.
"I know how." Mark said.
In a relatively short amount of time & thanks to the help of his subscribers, Mark got a letter sent right to Brittany's door. It was hand written too, so she would know exactly who it came from.
After that they all headed to the open space they had decided on. It was far enough away from everyone else that no on would see or get involved. But it also had thick bushes that were great for Jack, Bob & Wade to hide in. They planned things out as carefully as they could until it was close to the time that Brittany should arrive.
Mark stood out more toward the middle of the clearly so that Brittany wouldn't know anyone else was there. Hopefully. He tapped his hand against his thigh a bit impatiently. It was getting dark, but the sun hadn't set completely yet & Jack said that the blue moon needed to be coming up before he could cast the spell. But he also didn't know what Brittany would do. It was very apparent she had power.
He froze hearing a sort squeal sound a little ways behind him.
"Mark?! Oh my god, is it really you?!"
Mark swallowed turning around to face the blonde girl & forced a smile, "Hi, Brittany."
