I say that "0.999..." represents a number.
You are the only one here claiming that "it never ends".
Any numeral expressed in decimal notation represents a finite real number, and if its decimal expression is eventually periodic (repeats some finite digit sequence from some decimal place onwards) represents a finite rational number.
If you do not know at least that much about the meaning of decimal numerals you should not be displaying your ignorance here. --
