This takes place about 20 years later.
" Kevin, Ashley, any one home?" I put my briefcase down and look around to see if anyone was home. Then the door swings open and both Ashley and Kevin come in arguing about something.
"Hey dad." Kevin says rather quickly and starts to head up stairs but I stop him.
"Hold it! Isn't today report card day? Oh yes. I believe it is. Let's see it."
"Yea Kevin, let's see it." Ashley chimes in with a smirk on her face.
"Fine, but I want you to know that it's not my fault. Those teachers hate me. They want me to fail."
"Fail! Let me see it." I look it over and can see that he got 2 F's, a d and the rest C's.
"I'll let your mom deal with you. Next, Ashley fork it over." She hands it to me and she gets all A's and B's. "Wow. You see Kevin you could learn a few things from your sister," Ashley just smiles being quite content with herself, while Kevin rolls his eyes. "Just promise me that you will do better next time. Pay more attention to the books and less on the TV."
"Ok." With that he runs up stairs with Ashley trailing behind ready to irk him with her grades. They're both 14 and twins but there is nothing alike about them. He's likes to hangout and always has girls on the mind when Ashley's studious and aware of her priorities. The door opens again when Monica comes in with my second daughter Natalie who's 10.
"Hey Nat. How was school?"
"Great! Today we had a field day and we got to play games all day!"
" Well you certainly learn a lot in that school of yours."
"Yup! I'm gonna go watch TV." I turned to see Monica standing at the table looking through the mail. So I sneak behind her and put my arms around her waist.
"Hey you." She puts the mail down and turns toward me. "How was work?"
"It was alri-" I stopped in mid sentence and turned towards the TV.
"What?" She asks turning to look in the direction I'm looking in.
"And In other news, Gale Weathers gets out of jail today after serving a 20 years sentenced. Back in 1997,
Ms. Weathers, along with Richard Burke, plotted together to murder there former lovers but the plan failed. Ms. Weathers will now be on parole and will have to attend anger management classes. Mr. Burke on the other hand, made a plea of insanity at the trial and has been and still will be under intense psychological help. The names of the two victims were not released…"
" Oh my god," Monica says with shock written all over her face.
"Well I guess we owe the two of them." I say to her not glancing away from the tv.
" How do you figure that?"
" If it wasn't for Gale dating me when we met, we probably wouldn't have become friends first and our relationship wouldn't be as strong. As for Richard…well…I don't know how he helped."
" Well if he asked to get back together with me instead of stalking me then I would have yes and we wouldn't have gotten together."
" Hmm…interesting point."
"Yup. I think so." Monica smiles. I suddenly get an idea.
" Well this is the perfect time to do this." I reach into my coat pocket and take out a black box and open it to reveal a beautiful gold necklace with a heart pendant.
" Oh my god, it's beautiful." Her eyes light up.
" Read what's engraved on it." She obeys.
" Chandler and Monica, together forever." She reads out loud and then looks up at me with her face gleaming. " I like the sound of that. Together forever."
I know its noting special, I just felt like writing it. Be sure to read my other fics too and tell me what you think.
