Chapter 1: A New Start
Two months into life after the vacation to Mystery Mountian. Over the weeks, more guilt built up heavily in Fred's heart. Shaggy & Velma's wedding was soon to come. Scooby was happily living with Shaggy, like always, & helping him & Velma get ready for their big day. Fred & Daphne had been married for two months now, each day thanking God for each other. As Daphe was just starting to face some of the many challenges to come in her life. The fall she took off Mystery Mountain led her down a horrible path. The doctors had no choice but to confirm one of the couples biggest fears, Daphne was paralyzed from her legs down. No way to ever walk again. She was heartbroken by the fact & also okay with it all, only because she realized everything she did or that happened was for beloved, Fred. He didn't leave her like expected, but instead stayed with her & married her, making both their dreams come true. She struggled each day to go on, today was the day! The day she would be out of the hospital for the first time since her fall. Due to other injuries. She'd longed for this day, when she could go her comfortable home, until Fred & her could afford their own place. Her medical bills were wildly high. Fred never showed her them, he didn't need her to worry about how they'd find a way to pay them all off.
As for mysteries, Fred kept his word. Even though "The Freak" was dead, he refused to ever solve another mystery in his life. Not after what happened to his wife, Daphne. Never again would a mystery ruin a big part of his life. Daphne almost died because of it. Suddenly finding Brad & Judy wasn't so important anymore. Sure he'd love to find them so he'd have someone else to lean on, besides his wife all the time. She had enough of her shoulders with out him throwing his problems on her. Shaggy & Velma, along with Scooby came to visit Daphne often, usually not all at the same time, they most times took turns switching out while Fred went to work or took a short break. Fred was now working as an average man, not solving exciting and ever so dangerous cases, but a bussiness man, somewhere he never imagined himself being. He worked for the mayor of Crystal Cove now. He didn't care for the job at all, but nevertheless it paid most the bills and kept the couple on their feet. He missed excitment, he missed the wind rushing through his hair as he was being chased by a horrible monster. What he missed most of all is his old Daphne. Everyday he suffered the thought & questioned of "What would it have been like I wouldn't have taken the gang to Mystery Moutain?" He was lucky to still have his long time best friend in his arms. After all she'd been through there were so many points in her life where nobody saw her making it through, but she did!
"Mrs. Jones, are you ready?" A nurse asked, her face was so familiar anymore, they almost seemed like family to the couple. Doctors & nurses would now become their family, & the hospital would be considered Daphne's home away from home. She was just leaving but already their was a calander filled with appts. & so forth.
"Oh yes." Daphne replied with a soft smile on her face. Fred was leaning on the wall with his arms crossed, watching his wife gather her things from her hospital bed, neatly stuffing them into her bag.
"We're more than ready." Fred said, winking at the red head. Making her giggle.
"Well, I'm sure you now the routine by now, Mr. Jones. I'll leave you two alone now. We'll miss seeing you around but, glad your able to leave." The nurse said waving & leaving the room. There was a moment of silence in the room as the two looked at one another. Daphne moved her focus from Fred to her legs, she was wearing a sundress that flowed below her knee's, Fred had bought for her for this special day.
"Hey, this a new start, Daphne." Fred said softly, walking to her bedside & slipping her hand into his. Fred caught the tear gently flowing from one of her ocean blue eyes.
"I know..it is." She sighed, looking up to his face.
"We're going to go home & be happy, forever. This is it. This is the day we've both longed for, for two months! You're really coming home, with me." Fred said, with a smile that could have lit up the room. Daphne sniffled & looked into his blue eyes with a pinch of grey in them.
"Home?" She questioed. Fred laughed & nodded.
"Oh geez. Don't tell me I forgot to mention it to you." Fred said playfully. Daphne looked at him with a puzzled look across her face.
"Mention, what?" She asked, Fred knew he now had grabbed her full attention.
"Oh nothing..just that I bought us our first home &-" He began before being pulled over by Daphne's arms wrapping around his neck, then a gentle kiss on his lips. They pulled apart & Fred took a second to grasp what had just happened. "I take it, your excited to see it?" He laughed. Daphne nodded.
"Oh, yes! Let's go! Why are we sitting around in this drag of a hospital? Let's go home!" She said, reaching out for him to scoop her up into his arms. As he did, he gently placed her in her wheelchair, that was now hers to call her own.
The couple drove down the road, driving into the area that they would now be home.
"Which is ours, Freddie?" Daphne asked with excitment bubbling out of her voice. Fred grinned & looked over to the red head riding shot-gun in the seat beside him.
"Hmm, I think I forgot." He teased. Daphne managed to reach his arm & punch him playfully.
"C'mon, Freddie. Don't be like that." She said batting her eyelashes at the blond.
"Just keep your eyes opened for a house with-"
"Balloons!" Daphne cried, finishing his sentence. " & a beautiful sign welcoming me home!" Daphne shouted, wanting to bounce, unable to because of being disabled. "Oh and the house! Jeepers! That's our house..." She gasped, as if it was all a dream. Fred parked the car in the drive way. He slipped his hand into hers, one more time.
"This is our house, Daphne. I can't fix what happened to you, or that day. But, I can try to make the best of our lives." He said softly. Daphne leaned in & pressed her lips againest his.
"I love you." She said. Fred smiled & hugged her tightly.
"I love you, too." He said. He opened the passenger seat door & gave his wife a large grin. She smiled brightly, reaching her arms out for him. He picked her up & instead of seating her in the usual wheelchair he kept her in his arms as they both gazed at their new future in their very own house.
"It's completely designed the way you always wanted a house to look like. Two bed rooms, an office, so I can work at home, amazing living area, perfect kitched for cookie baking together, & did I mention theres a great backyard. I'm thinking about adding a hottub to it?" Fred said. Daphne' s smile grew brighter by the minute. Fred would cherish it, because it wasn't everyday she was so happy.
"Oh, Freddie! I love it! It's like I always dreamed it would be!" She gasped, flooding him with kisses on his cheeks. He laughed & hugged her a little tighter.
"Your everything I always dreamed of having." He sighed, kissing her.
So this is JUST chapter one! What do you all think? Should I continue? It will depend on how many reviews I get on this chapter, then I'll see about it! :D
