Phineas thought about the color green and then slowly realized that Ferb's hair color was green. He felt so stupid for never realizing that before that the riddle was about Ferb.
"Man, I really am oblivious…" he said to himself. But he didn't felt about his brother in that way yet. He went back to his room to think some about some things, but stopped at the doorway when he saw Ferb gathering some of his personal stuff. The redhead slowly stepped toward his bed and sat on it while releasing a deep sigh.
"Ferb," he began. "do you remember that day when we were 12 and we built that machine that predicted the future in riddles?" The British teenager turned around and looked at his younger stepbrother.
"Well, I asked it if I would ever fall in love, and it came down with this riddle: 'Love is beautiful, love is strange and it's even mean. You will find yours when you think of the color green'… and I think I know now what it means." Phineas said as stood up and walked toward Ferb.
"I never wanted to hurt you, or let you down."
"Well, too late for that…" Ferb interrupted him.
"Please, let me explain… I know I did, but I think that riddle says that I'm going to fall in love with you… I just don't know how or when…" he paused and took a deep breath. "Every single one of the predictions came true, so this one will too. Please Ferb, I'm begging you, please stay in this room with me. It's the only thing I want. I've always loved you, but just as brothers and best friends. But I wanna try to love you, like the way you love me." He said while a blush came on his cheeks. He opened his arm to give his older stepbrother a hug. And as he expected, Ferb did.
"Sorry Phin, I never should have reacted like that… I would wait an eternity for you if I have to." Ferb apologized.
"Thnxs bro." Phineas felt a warm feeling in his heart. "Maybe it's even sooner there then we think…" he added.
"Who knows…" Ferb replied as he let Phineas go.
"I'm going down now for some breakfast, ok? I'll help you unpack after it." Phineas said as he went out of the room.
Ferb sat down on his bed now. All he could do was smile. He knew now that his brother will love him eventually, and nothing could stop it.
"Maybe I should help it a bit…" he whispered to himself as he started to unpack again.
