Summary: Season 5 final alternate ending…Ty and Amy's life after the proposal. What If Amy hadn't mentioned not wanting to be tied down? And Ty had remembered his jacket…The summary sucks…sorry. Better read!
I sat by the fire while I waited for Amy to put Katie; her niece, down for bed. Amy's dog, Lobo was resting on my lap and most of the couch. I saw Amy coming out of Katie's room. She saw us and laughed. "Come on, get off." She lightly pushed Lobo of the couch, so we could sit together.
"Well, Katie's asleep." She told me sitting by me. I wrapped my arms around her "It's so nice to have the house to ourselves." She told me
"Yeah." I replied I then brought up her audition "You turned down Dark Horse huh."
She looked a little disappointed about it but then spoke "Yeah. I was so nervous, for than audition…"
"Well you didn't look it." I told her remembering how beautiful and graceful she looked up on those horses
"I felt it. I don't know I just…It's not for me. I-I don't belong in that world." She glanced at me
I gave that a thought for a moment before telling her, "Does that mean that you think you belong here?" With me. I thought to myself.
Her lips curled up into a smile "Maybe." She nodded
"I'm glad." I told her
"His offer made me realize something, even though dark horse isn't the right path for me, there is so much more out there, we shouldn't be worried about you going off to university. Okay…I shouldn't be worried about you going off." She told me "Look at grandpa, he's on his way to Paris, how exciting is that?" she laughed "We should just never…"
A cry interrupted Amy. Katie's wails came though the baby monitor. "I'll be back." She told me
"I've got to go get some fire wood. I'll be back." I told her as she got up and went to Katie's room
I threw my jacket on and headed off outside for some fire wood. I stood out on the porch and pulled the ring out of my pocket. I have tomorrow planned out; I was going to propose to Amy.
I grabbed some wood and headed in the house to see Amy holding Katie on the couch. "She didn't go back to sleep I see." I commented from behind
"No. I thought she might be hungry, but she refused her bottle, so I think she misses Lou and Peter." She said cooing at the baby
I put the wood into the fire and took my jacket off and put it on the couch. I took my seat next to Amy and Katie. I put my arm around her shoulders and cooed at Katie. "Hey, Ty." Amy said
"Yeah." I kissed her cheek
"I know you worry about being…like your dad, but you won't be. I see you with Katie and I know you will treat our kids just the same. You will make a great dad." She handed me an almost asleep Katie and got up
"Where are you going?" I whispered
"The restroom." She said hurrying out of the room
"What do you think Katie; would I be a good daddy?" I asked the little infant in my arms.
**The next Morning**
I woke up to sunshine streaming through the curtains in my room. I don't remember going to my room last night. I got up and walked out to the living room. No one was there, just a nice folded blanket on top of a pillow. Ty was cooking breakfast…
"Hey." I walked into the kitchen
"Morning." He kissed me
"I see Katie was an early riser today." I kissed my nieces head
"Yeah. I didn't want her to wake you, so she's helping me make breakfast. Right Katie." The baby giggled with delight
"You are so cute." I kissed Ty and took Katie from him
"I know. But you are cuter." He kissed me "So what are your plans for today?"
"Ummm. Wait for Lou to get back, then get ready and work with the horses I guess why?" I told him
"I just want to spend the day with you and only you." He kissed me long and slow. He took Katie from me again, "Go get ready."
"You sure?" I asked him
"Yeah, we'll be fine." He told me
"Okay." I headed back to the bathroom to get ready
"Morning." I said to Peter as we lay awake in bed
"Morning." He kissed me
"I miss Katie." I told him
"Me too. Let's get ready so we can go pick her up." He told me as he got out of bed
I slide out of the bed and headed towards our overnight bag and got some clothes and changed. A few minutes later we were in our car on our way back to the house. We walked in the door to smell bacon and eggs. I walked into the kitchen to see Ty with Katie in his arms. "Hey." I said rushing over to take my baby
"Hey. Amy's in the shower, she should be out soon." He told me I handed Katie to Peter and pulled Ty aside "Are you going to ask her today?" I whispered
"Shhhh. I don't want her to suspect anything." He told me
"Hey Peter! Where's Lou?" Amy's voice came from the kitchen
"Here I am." I said coming into the room "Hey sis. How was Katie?"
"A perfect angle. As always." She told me
"That's great!" I told her excited for what was to come of today
"Yeah, well I've got to go work with Spartan, so I'll see you later." She told me
"I'll come with you." Ty said hurrying to catch up with her
They headed out to the barn to track up the horses.
Sunset was to set at exactly 4:57; Amy and I were set to be at a picnic at the top of the hill, with no distractions. Just us. Peter and Lou were going to be in the house with Katie, and Mallory is in Nashville, and Jake is in Pairs. And Tim…well I don't know where he is.
I was in the barn brushing down Harley then I would brush Spartan. I talked to Lou and we had a plan to get Amy off the ranch for a little while, during this time I will set up our picnic. This was a perfect time to ask her. This was a special time for us; it was when we first kissed all those years ago.
I heard someone behind me. "Hey Amy." I kissed her
"Hey…What are you doing?" she looked at me puzzled
"Harley just looked a little lonely so I thought I'd brush him, we haven't gone for a trail ride in a while he's probably just ready to." I lied
"We should go for a trail ride…later today maybe. Lou told me that the new horse needs a certain kind of feed so I'm going to go to town and get it and maybe catch up with Soraya before she leaves for London…Is that okay?" she asked me
"Perfect. I'll see you later." We kissed and then she left for Maggie's
I quickly put Harley in his stall and brushed out Spartan. I headed over to get the saddles and polish them when I saw blond hair out of the corner of my eye. I turned to find Ashley and a…baby.
"Ashley? What are you doing here?" I asked her
"Is Caleb here?" her lip quivered
"In the loft. Who is this?" I asked
"His daughter…" she hurried up hiding the baby in her coat
"Ashley?" I heard Caleb ask
"I'm so sorry!" she cried "I shouldn't have hid from you, but I did because I was scared." I heard her say
"Our daughter." I could hear a small smile in her voice
"Ash…I wish you would have told me, who knows?" he asked
"Only Ty, he asked on my way up here." She told him
After than I only heard them apologizing and cooing over their new baby girl.
I finished shinning the saddles and then it was 4, o'clock when Amy texted me.
On my way back. I love you. Received 4:01
I love you too. Sent 4:02
I saddled the horses and tied them up outside while I ran in to get the picnic Lou packed for us. I hooked it on Harleys Saddle bag and waited for Amy to get back.
It was 4:49 and still no sign of Amy. I looked over her text again and didn't understand where she was. Sunset was soon, where was she? I saw Lou running out to me. "Amy's been in an accident you have to go! Now I'll get the horses!" That put me in motion quicker than anything in my life. I grabbed my keys and raced to the hospital where Amy was.
I raced into the hospital and rushed to the nurse's desk. "Amy Fleming!" I said
"Relation?" she asked. I didn't have time for this crap!
"Fiancé!" I said knowing only immediate family were allowed to see her
"Room 112." She said pointing down the hall
"Thanks!" I said already heading down the hall in search of room 112.
I found it at the end of the hall, and I opened the door. What I saw made me stop dead in my tracks. She was hooked up to a few wires and had an IV. She had scratches all over her face. "Amy? Please Amy be okay." I sat down by her bed
"Ty?" she mumbled "Ty. I need Ty." She moved her head back and forth she was dreaming about me
"Amy." I rubbed her hand "I'm right here." She opened her eyes and looked around. "Where am I?" she asked
"You were in an accident. It was bad. But it's okay you're okay." I told her
"Peter's car…" she sighed "I said I'd be carful."
"Don't worry about that now; you just focus on getting better."
"What about our trail ride…I was looking forward to it. Just you and me for a while out in the pasture away from life." She told me
"Amy it's okay we can go another time, the sun is still setting and I want to do this today…" I mumbled that last part
"Amy…this isn't the romantic day I had planned for you, but it will have to do. I gave you this promise ring…" I lifted her left hand "at sunset 3 years ago. We first kissed at sunset, and a lot of our firsts have been at sunset. And I want this one to be at sunset too…"
"Ty? What are you talking about?" she asked
"Amy Fleming will you marry me, and love me for the rest of my life?" I asked me
"Oh…Ty. Yes…of course. I love you so much." She tried to sit up, but just fell back
"Don't strain yourself, I'll come to you." I got up and slipped the ring on her finger and kissed her
"When can we go home?" she asked
"In a few days then…I will propose right, we will have the romantic evening I planned." I told her
"That sounds per-perfect." She yawned
"Rest. You've had a long day, you need to rest." I kissed her forehead as she fell asleep
I started to doze off in the hospital chair only to be woken up by Amy screaming. "NO! Chase stop it!" she turned back and forth in bed "No! I love him! I love Ty!" she cried
I got up from the chair and gently grabbed her shoulders. "Amy. Wake up!" she opened her eyes. "Ty?" she was crying
"Shhhh. I'm here…but I think we need to talk. What were you dreaming about?" I asked taking her hand in mine trying to tell her whatever it is I'm not mad
"A—A few weeks ago, you were out doing something with Grandpa…when Chase stopped by. I was in the barn; I had my back to him. He came over and snaked his arms around my waist." She took a breath "I thought…it was you. So I turned around and saw him. I tried to get out of his grasp, but he pushed me into a wall…He started to kiss me." She shook with fear
"You don't have to go on…but why didn't you tell me?" I asked her
"Because nothing happened on my part…and I was ashamed." She hung her head and took a deep breath "He tried to make me go up to the loft, but I refused…so he then started pulling at my clothes—trying to get then off…that was when Grandpas truck pulled in…he bolted and I ran up to the loft to hide and get together." She sighed tears rolling down her cheeks
"Amy…I love you…I just wish you had told me." I kissed her cheek
Just then a knock came on the door and the doctor came in. "Miss. Fleming? May I speak with you in private for a moment?" she asked
"Ty can stay…" she told them
"Okay, Miss Fleming your test results came back…you're pregnant…"
