Taurus's P.O.V:

I was walking past the bathroom when I heard sobbing.

"Cancer?" I asked, and opened the door slowly. She looked up at me with red, teary eyes. She was sitting on the floor with her back against the wall.

"What's wrong?" I asked and sat down next to her.

"I-I got an E-mail earlier t-today. W-we don't have enough money to keep this p-place," she replied and cried more.

"We have three days 'til they're taking this place from us," she continued. I didn't know what to say. I was shocked.

"We'll think of a plan," I said reassuringly. She looked over at me with hope in her puffy eyes. "You think so?" I nodded, even though I didn't believe it.

Cancer ran up to me.

"Taurus! I have an idea!" She exclaimed happily. I stood up from the floor, and followed her to a different room in our daycare. Yes, we have a daycare.

"Fundraiser!" She exclaimed.

"What?" I asked.

"Let's have a fundraiser! We can have a little stand and sell lemonade or cupcakes or something!"

"That's a great idea!" I said and smiled widely. "When are we gonna start?"

"I can get half the kids to draw pictures, and you can take the other half to bake!"

"Sure," I agreed, and went to get some kids with me.

Cancer's P.O.V:

We had a stand outside the daycare, and believe it or not, we actually made a lot of money! We were selling pictures that the kids drew, and cupcakes.

I'm currently counting all the money we earned.

"Five hundred, six hundred, seven hundred," I mumbled to myself. "Eight hundred!" I looked over at Taurus with a smile on my face.

"Eight hundred!" I repeated.

"Is that enough?" He asked.

"I think so." I turned my attention to the now open door. There he was. Virgo, the head of the daycare board. (A/N: ...just go with it!)

"Do you have the money?" He asked. I nodded, and handed him the 800. He looked at it for a while, then turned to me. "It's only eight hundred."

"I-I know," I replied.

"I need a thousand. Your missing two hundred."

I looked down at the floor, tears threatening to escape. I saw something green in front of my eyes, and looked up. Little Pisces was standing there, two hundred dollars in her hands, and a warm smile on her face.

"Hewe you gow," she said.

"I can't take that," I replied softly.

"But you need it mowe than I!"

I got down on my knees. "Pisces, where'd you get that?"

She smiled widely. "Fwom da stand."

"You took this?"

She shook her head quickly. "No, it fell. I found it on da fwoor."

I grabbed the money and hugged her. "Thank you, Pisces."

"No pwobwem!" She giggled, then ran away to play with her friends.

"Here you go," I said and gave the money to Virgo.

"Hmm. Well, good luck with the daycare," he said before leaving.

I squealed and hugged Taurus. "We did it!"

"I love you," he blurted out. We let go of each other, and his face was completely red in embarrassment.

"I-I mean--"

"I love you too, Taurus," I interrupted and smiled warmly. He looked back at me with a shocked expression. "What?"

I giggled, and kissed him. He was shocked, but kissed back.

"I said I love you, Taurus."
