Starring:Luna,James,Centipede,Ms.Spider,Mr.Grasshopper,Earthworm,Mrs.Ladybug and Gloworm.
Description:After escaping the pirates,everyone decided to celebrate the safe return of Luna,James,Ms.Spider and Centipede.But on this speacil night,they started to become more then just strangers to one another.
"Hey Mr.Grasshopper,can ya play any songs on that musical thing of your's?"Centipede asked.
"It's called a violin Mr.Centipede and yes,I sure can,"Mr.Grasshopper said.
"Then would you mind playing some for us?"Mrs.Ladybug asked.
"I wouldn't mind a bit,"Mr.Grasshopper said tuning his violin.
Luna and James watched closely as the old grasshopper played a few notes for practice.
"Any requests?"he asked.
"Mozart,"Mrs.Ladybug said,"I love his music,"
"With pleasure my dear ladybug,"Mr.Grasshopper said starting to play Mozart on his violin.
Luna's tail started to whish back and forth with the rytheme of the song.James giggled at how it kept hitting his back and tickling his neck.Once the song ended,the whole group clapped.
"That was amazing,"Ms.Spider said.
"Why thank you my dear,"Mr.Grasshopper said,"Anymore requests?"
"I know some good songs,"Earthworm said.
"Like what?"Centipede asked.
"Um...My mind's gone blank,"Earthworm said.
Luna smiled,"It's okay Earthworm.I have one for you Mr.Grasshopper,"
"Do tell,Luna.What might it be?"he asked.
"Do you know Over the Rainbow?"Luna asked.
"I sure do,"Mr.Grasshopper said starting to play the song on his violin.
The group listened quietly,but Ms.Spider thought other wise.She started to hum the song a bit,but that hum then turned into a voice.Her voice.
"Some where over the rainbow.Way up high,"she started to sing.
The group all turned to her.They never heard her sing like this before.Well,they did when they all met James,but not like this.Mr.Grasshopper smiled and played some more of the song.Luna herself howled along with the song.
"There's a land that heard of once in a lullaby,"Ms.Spider went on,"Somewhere over the rainbow,skies are blue.And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true,"
Centipede smiled softly at her.He's never seen her perform like this.Solo.It was beautiful.
"Someday I'll wish upon a star and wake up where the clouds are far behind me.When troubles melt like a lemon drops away above the chimmney tops,that's where you'll find me,"Ms.Spider's voice was like that of an angel's,"Somewhere over the rainbow,bluebirds fly.Birds fly over the rainbow,why then,oh why can't I?"
Mr.Grasshopper started to finish the song and Ms.Spider sang one last line.
"If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow,why,oh why can't I?"she finished.
The group clapped for the two performers.Centipede whistled and clapped all 12 of his hands.
Ms.Spider blushed slightly,"Why,thank you commodore,"
"And now for one of my personal favorites,"Mr.Grasshopper said.
"Really?Will you play it for us?"James asked.
"I will if Ms.Spider will do the honer of singing it for us,"Mr.Grasshopper said.
"I would be honered,"Ms.Spider said.
Mr.Grasshopper started to play and Ms.Spider took a deep breath and started to sing.
"Every night in my dreams,I sing you.I feel you.That is how I know you go on,"Ms.Spider started.
Luna jumped up and joined in the song,"Far across the distance and spaces between us,you have come to show you go on,"
"Near,far,wherever you are,I believe that the heart does go on,"they both singed.
The group all swayed with the song as Luna and Ms.Spider singed their hearts out while Mr.Grasshopper played his violin.They never noticed it,but they have changed since they all first met.And they never really noticed that besides the fact that they have changed,they have also grown closer together.Not like friends,but a family.As everyone laid down to bed,James smiled as he thought of everything that happened that night.Luna was asleep beside him and though he never tried it before,he reached out his hand and stroked the wolf's white beautiful fur.She slowly opened one eye and smiled as he stroked her fur.They both fell asleep side by side as a family together.
