I'm back for an epilogue that I promised! –Courtney
Ezra and I had just gotten back from the Grille. My parents and the three girls were invited for a celebration. It was so good to be back again. I smiled as I wrapped my arms tightly around his waist, looking up at him.
Ezra looked down at me, and kissed my forehead. "So…"
I laughed. Of course we wouldn't know what to do. I took a deep breath and sighed. "So..."
Ezra grinned. "What do you want to do, Mrs. Fitz?" he asked wisely, pushing strand of hair behind my ear, before facing me.
My mind pondered for a second. There was a lot of stuff I wanted to do with Ezra before the accident got in the way. Now, that wasn't a problem anymore.
"Hm….want to go bowling so I can kick your ass again?" Ezra suggested, standing tall and proud.
I laughed. "As tempting as that sounds, Mr. Fitz, I think I have another idea.." I said biting my lip.
Ezra rolled his eyes. "And..what is that?"
I smiled. "I want to go on that honeymoon we never had," I exclaimed, taking his hand in mine, and looking up at him with hopeful eyes.
He rubbed his chin slightly before leaning down to whisper something in my ear. "Even better." I could sense the wide grin that he was wearing on his face.
3 years later…
"Aria! Aria! Come quick!" I yelled as loud as I could without scaring the baby. I was holding Stephanie up on her feet. She was grinning at me as she made gurgling noises. She jumped back and forth from one small foot to the other.
"What? Did you drop the baby?" I heard Aria yell back from the bathroom. She was taking a shower.
I laughed. "No! But I think Steph is gonna take her first steps! Come here!" I replied, making funny faces at Steph at the same time to stall her.
I chuckled as I heard a loud scream. "What! Oh no, no, no, I can't miss this, I can't miss this!" I heard her panic as the water turned off. The door flung open and Stephanie and I watched as Aria came running out of the doorway in nothing but a towel, almost slipping on a stuffed animal on the floor as she did so.
She smiled as Steph continued to pace on one foot, then her other. Aria knelt down to the floor and clapped her hands. "Come here Stephanie! Come to Mommy!"
I kissed Stephanie's cheek before I let go of her and she stood on her feet. I started to cheer and encourage her, but she just stood there, and eventually fell back onto her but and sat there. She smiled.
I frowned, and Aria sighed as she walked over to me and sat on my knee. She looked at me as she blew at my face playfully.
"Maybe she just had to pee…" I started, looking at Aria without laughing.
Aria shook her head and smiled. "What is that, the new potty dance?"
We laughed, as Stephanie crawled over to the coffee table and grabbed on to one of the legs. I sighed. "I mean, we've been training for weeks," I explained as I wrapped my arms around Aria's waist.
She smiled as she looked down at the ground. "What, did you start a baby bootcamp?" she asked.
I grinned. "Yes," I played along. She nodded as she wrapped her arms around my neck.
"Aw, but you're still the best daddy in the world," she reassured as she placed a chaste kiss upon my lips.
I smirked as I caressed her cheek. "And you're the best mommy in the world, even though you almost missed your daughter's first steps," I teased.
Her mouth dropped. "Yeah, her 'first steps'," she laughed.
"Hey, she's unpredictable!" I defended myself, as Aria began to giggle.
She pressed her forehead against mine. "I love you," she whispered.
I smiled, and placed one hand behind her neck. "I love you too," I murmured back, before we attached our lips again.
When we parted, Aria gasped. "Ezra, look!" she screamed. We turned our heads quickly to Stephanie, who had pulled herself up using the table, and was now giggling, and walking slowly towards us.
"Steph!" we cheered in unison as we clapped and cried until we greeted her with hugs and kisses. Aria looked at me lovingly, before kissing my cheek and hugged me and Stephanie. We were happy, and were a perfect family. We were right where we wanted to be.
