Well, here's that romantic scene. Short and sweet.
That evening, everyone (and by everyone, I mean me, the guys, the kids, Dana and Oscar, and Winston's wife Laura, and Kendra, his little girl) was sitting around the firehouse, talking about what had happened today, reiterating old Ghostbusting memories, and catching each other up on what had happened over the last fifteen years.
I happily watched as Alice and Venkman's kid hold hands. Alice was smiling more than she ever had in her whole life. She was usually so serious, just like someone else I knew. It was strange how even though Alex had been her father, Alice had ended up just like Egon.
I went into the kitchen to get a soda. I started singing "A Thousand Miles" by Vanessa Carlton to myself. I was so happy, I just had to. "Makin' my way downtown, walking fast, faces pass and I'm homebound. Starin' blankly ahead; making my way, making my way through the crowd."
I heard warm chuckling from the doorway. I turned to find Egon standing there. He had followed me into the kitchen and I hadn't noticed. "Still singing, huh?"
I laughed a little. "Not much. Just when I want to make someone's ears bleed."
Egon shook his head. "You're never going to believe me about how great you are, are you?"
"I did once," I told him. "Eleven years ago. Remember?"
He nodded slowly. "I remember."
I walked over and wrapped my arms around his shoulders. "You were there for me. You were always there for me. Thank you."
Egon smiled a little as he put his hand on my cheek. I stood up on my tiptoes and kissed him. At that moment, Peter chose to saunter in. "Oh, disgusting! Are you two making out again?" he yelled, just loud enough for the rest to hear.
"Yeah, Pete, we were!" I yelled back jokingly. "And loving every minute of it, right, Egon?" Egon silently chortled and rolled his eyes.
Peter shook his head, mock tiredly. "I can't let you two out of my sight for a moment, can I?"
"Uh-uh." I grinned and kissed Egon on the nose. "Come on, Spengler. We'll have time later, if you know what I mean." I winked at him. Egon's cheeks went pink slightly.
"Good for you, Egghead," said Peter, patting Egon on the back. "Now you can quit the mood slime!"
Egon blushed more. "That was an experiment!" he defended, trying not to laugh.
"Right." Peter looked at me. "You sure you can compete with some alluring glob of psychomagnotheric goo?"
I wrapped my arms around Egon's torso and smirked at Peter. "Oh, I'm sure. This one's mine and he knows it." I smiled up at Egon. His warm brown eyes were twinkling.
Peter rolled his eyes. "I'm gonna get outta here before I'm completely sick." He walked out and my scientist and I followed, arms around each other.
"I love you, Jennifer," Egon said to me.
"I love you too."
