Love Potion #9
15 December 2006
It's the school dance and Cleo and Emma have boy issues. Cleo wants Lewis to ask her and Emma wants Byron, but neither boy gets the message. On top of this, as much as they want to attend, there is the very real risk of water disasters at the dance. Lewis thinks he's found a way to control the girl's mermaidness in the form of a waterproof spray. It works a treat until of course the girls start going redder than beetroots. Totally embarrassed, the girls escape to the Moon Pool. Lewis goes to find them and they blame him for ruining the dance for them. But he tells Emma that Byron really likes her, and Rikki that Zane has been asking after her all night so Emma and Rikki go back to the dance to meet their boys. Left with Cleo he discovers why she's really upset. Cleo reveals her feelings for Lewis and they kiss each other.
