Disclaimer: I do not own F&F characters.
A/N: I definitely have waaayyy too much time on my hands. I started missing Alexus so I wrote this for anyone interested in a Dom and Letty Plus 1 sequel.
"So how does it feel to finally be beat in this tournament?" Dom chuckled at the reporter's question.
"It sucks, especially because I got beat by a girl." He said looking over at Letty. "But I guess I can't be too mad seeing how she's on my team on and off the track."
"All I know is my trophy is going in the center of our living room, and it will be thrown in his face at every possible second." Letty interjected causing Dom to laugh.
"Why don't we have a rematch after this?" He proposed playfully.
"What's the point? I'm just going to win again."
"Aww you scared Let?"
"Baby I just don't want to embarrass you any further. What will the public say?"
"When we get home we're having a rematch."
"Any chance of press coverage?" One of the reporters asked.
"No", the couple said uniformly.
"You two have been in the public eye for several years, has competition ever been an issue?"
"No", Letty answered simply.
"How long have you two been together?"
"A long time", Dom answered stoically. They only ever revealed minimal information about their relationship.
"Ortiz, last week there were photos of you looking pretty cozy with singer Ne-yo at his birthday party. There were rumors of a rift between the two of you seeing as how you weren't accompanied by your husband. Is there any truth to that report?"
"Really? You think that's an appropriate question to ask me?" Letty asked incredulously. She could feel anger seeping through her.
"Not that that question deserves a response, um, but Ne-yo is a mutual friend. I didn't go because we could not find a babysitter. We don't believe in nannies and I thought she deserved a night out." Dom interrupted.
"And for the record, I fucked my husband that night. I will not be taking anymore questions. Thank you." Letty said ripping off her microphone piece and storming out. There were murmurs in the crowd. Dom stood to leave, but his manager advised him otherwise.
"Please, no more personal questions." He told the press seriously. Dom continued to take a few more questions, but they still ended early so that he could find Letty.
"I mean, the nerve of that guy to ask me that!" She exasperated taking a long drag from a freshly lit cigarette.
"Where did you get that from?" Dom asked taking it from her and stomping it out.
"Security guard", she answered. "I just want to rearrange his face. He basically called me a bad wife because I went out. I'm twenty-eight. I should be able to have fun from time to time without being scrutinized."
"Baby why are you letting them get to you. It's their job to look into bullshit."
"I don't give a fuck. You don't come at someone like that without getting your ass kicked."
"Let we ain't on the block no more, so stop acting like we are."
"Urg, that fucking prick! You know the reason Alexus was acting so weird last week was because he read somewhere we were breaking up?"
"But we're not so that's it. It's over." She rubbed her eyes in frustration, and Dom brought her into an embrace. "Who won today?"
"I did." She pouted.
"Who set a new record?"
"I did." Letty answered with a proud smile.
"That's right, you made shit happen out there, and that's all that matters."
"I really wanna go home and be with my babies. That's all I want to do."
"Let's go then." Dom gestured.
"Don't forget my trophy." Letty told him as she walked to their motorhome. The children had not accompanied them because it had been a local competition and races tended to be long and tedious for them. Tony had offered to look after them, with Mia's assistance. Their two oldest were a rambunctious pair, and their youngest child was only thirteen months old. Therefore, one adult was not enough to look after the Toretto clan.
"I'm proud of you and they will be too." Dom told Letty with a kiss. "I still want that rematch though."
"Shut-up", Letty said pulling him into another kiss before they opened their front door.
"Mami!" Jensen came running to the door.
"Hey baby!" Letty exclaimed squatting down to embrace him in a tight hug. He was definitely the most attached to her, perhaps because they were the most alike. Dom definitely had a soft spot for their baby girl who began pulling at his leg impatiently.
"Papi!" Mazda whined with a cry. Dom picked her up and soothed her with a kiss on her cheek.
"How you doing big girl?" He greeted as she pulled at the chain around his neck.
"They were on their best behavior today." Mia informed Letty and Dom with a smile.
"I didn't break anything." Jensen reported proudly.
"Where's your brother, Juju?" Letty asked her youngest son.
"The living room", he answered dismissively and attempted to regain her attention. "Mami Papá took us to get pizza!"
"I wanna be a pizza man!"
"Lex!" Dom bellowed out walking into their living area.
"Eat it!" Alexus yelled into his X-box headset. "Shut up man. I owned you!"
"Hold up, hold up. My dad's calling me. I gotta pause." The boy spoke into the headset to give Dom his attention. "Yeah?"
"Turn it off."
"What? Why?" The boy exclaimed.
"Because I said so."
"Pa I just got to level twenty-three. Don't do this to me!"
"Off." Dom asserted.
"Shut up!" Alexus yelled into his headset.
"Excuse me?" Dom growled while his daughter absentmindedly poked at his face.
"Not you, not you, not you!" The boy disregarded fearfully.
"Turn it off now."
"What's going on in here?"
"Alexus is on the X-box again."
"I thought we had an agreement, no games after seven." Letty asserted.
"Uh, about that. I downloaded this new game and lost track of time. Papá let me!"
"Now you can't use it until next week." She told him.
"What?" The boy exclaimed.
"You in trouble, haha!" Jensen taunted.
"Screw off!" The ten year old yelled at his younger brother.
"Ey'!" Letty yelled out.
"Watch your mouth!" Dom told Alexus.
"He's so annoying! I wish he was never born."
"Alright calm down." Dom told him evenly.
"No, this isn't fair!" The boy said before storming upstairs to his room.
"What was that about?" Tony asked when he exited the bathroom.
"Pops, why did you let him play the game system?"
"Because it kept him away from Jensen." The boys were not getting along and the young parents did not quite know how to handle it. Tony assured them it was normal, but it seemed to have worsened with Mazda's arrival.
"Pops we're trying to get him off it. It's a bad habit. He spends hours on it."
"I'll go talk to him." Letty said making her way upstairs. She knocked on Alexus' door, but he did not answer. She let herself in and found the boy shedding angry tears on his bed. When he saw her, Alexus placed his face in his pillow to hide away from her. "Baby" Letty began, but Alexus did not respond. "So you're not gonna talk to me?"
"For what? So you can yell at me some more?"
"No one yelled at you. You did all the yelling."
"Whatever", Alexus sniffled.
"What's wrong Papi? We already talked about you playing too many video games." Letty asked smoothing her hand over his curls.
"But Papá let me. It's not like I didn't have permission."
"You know all the rules. Don't play innocent."
"Jensen always gets his way, and when I try to get mine it always blows up."
"Now you know that's not true."
"Yes'sa, all he has to do is cry. It's so annoying."
"Lexi you can't compare yourself to Juju. He's still a baby."
"No he's not."
"He's only five. He doesn't know any better, but you know you're my favorite, right?"
"That's a lie. He's your favorite."
"How can you say that? You were my first baby. I used to hold you and look at you for hours because you are that amazing. You weren't even doing anything. I just loved you that much. You made me grow up. Hell, I still feel like I'm growing up." Letty said bringing Alexus into her arms. "And let's not forget, you look the most like me, so you know we're the cutest people in this house." Alexus laughed. "And don't forget, you're the one who thinks he's too cool to get cuddles from his mommy in public."
"It isn't cool." He said as she continued to hug him. Letty snickered.
"So you want me to leave then?"
"No, we're not in public." Alexus said holding her tighter.
"Oh so you want to be a secret mama's boy." Alexus rolled his eyes. "Don't worry Lexi. You're secret's safe with me. Even when you think you're grown. You'll never be too old to be my baby." She said kissing his cheek.
"Yeah, do I really have to wait until next week? I was making money, like real money."
"Oh so you can pay for your phone now?"
"Not that type of money." He dismissed. Letty chuckled.
"Well I guess since Papá did let you I can over look it this one time, but you need to be willing to sleep with Jensen if he wakes up in the middle of the night.
"Please no! He kicks me." He whined.
"That's the deal. Take it or leave it."
"Urg fine." The boy conceded.
"Good boy, and I don't want you to ever say something so nasty again. Your brother loves you."
"Don't apologize to me. Apologize to him." Letty asserted
"Do I have to?"
"Yes." She told him while pushing him off his bed.
"Oh and Mami, congrats on winning. I knew you could do it."
"Thank you baby. That means a lot coming from an MVP."
"That's just peewee. You do it for real."
"You're so sweet. You see? That's why you're my favorite. I only care about what my boys think of me."
"What about Mazda?"
"Her too, but she doesn't really judge yet." They walked downstairs where the rest of the family had been waiting for them.
"Congratulations on your win Let." Tony told her with a hug.
"Thank you." She grinned.
"Congrats Let." Mia chimed. "I knew you'd show those boys that girls have what it takes too."
"Does this mean you're king of the house now Mami?" Jensen asked her.
"Yes, yes it does." Letty answered instantly.
"Woa, no it doesn't." Dom contested.
"But you said you were king of the house because you make money and win races. Mami won, so doesn't that mean she makes money and wins races?"
"I still make money, and girls can't be kings."
"Because they're queens. Just because Mami won doesn't mean things change around here."
"Then why win?"
"To prove you're the best."
"So Mami's the best."
"Yes, I'm the best." Letty told Jensen.
"Can I be the best?" He asked her.
"I don't know." The little boy said with a shrug. They all laughed and Letty gave the small boy several kisses until he giggled.
"Your brother has something to say to you." Letty informed him.
"Yes?" The little boy inquired at Alexus who rolled his eyes.
"Go on. Tell him." Letty pressed.
"I'm sorry..." Alexus said looking down at his feet and placing his hands in his pockets.
"For?" Letty prompted.
"For saying I wished you'd never been born..."
"It was mean."
"I love you."
"What do you have to say to that Juju?" Dom asked his youngest.
"It's okay." The little boy shrugged.
"Why don't you go give him a hug?" Letty suggested. The boys looked at each other awkwardly.
"Do I have to?" Alexus whined.
"Go hug your brother." Dom asserted in a no nonsense tone. Alexus grudgingly walked over to Jensen and hugged him.
"Aww I have the cutest nephews in the world." Mia cooed taking out her phone to take a picture. "Stay just like that."
"Send me that one." Letty told her. They were always dotting on them.
"Will do." Mia had yet to have kids of her own. She was only twenty-six and felt she was too young for all the fuss. She was a proud aunt, and the godmother of Jensen. She had settled down with an honest cop by the name of Brian O'Conner, who she had met a few years before. Dom was not initially thrilled, but the blond man's charm soon won him over.
"It's getting late. Thank you guys for dealing with these little diablitos." Letty told Tony and Mia.
"No problem." Tony chuckled ruffling the small boy's head.
"Wait! I'm a devil?" Jensen asked excitedly. "Do I have special devil powers, like in the bible?"
"No Jensen." Alexus told him in an annoyed tone.
"I don't see them enough." Mia said hugging Alexus. Though she was Dom's assistant, she was increasingly dealing with the financial and scheduling aspect of Dom's life, and was rarely around the children like she used to be when Alexus was much younger.
"Bye Tia." He told her with a hug.
"You wanna come into the city with me tomorrow? We can go to the arcade."
"Can I come too?" Jensen begged.
"No", Alexus refused.
"But why?" Jensen began to cry. "I want to go."
"Alexus..." Dom told him warningly.
"Me and you are gonna have a talk after." Dom told his oldest.
"Great", the boy said sarcastically.
"Keep that up and see where it gets you." Dom threatened. Letty let out a heavy sigh as she walked her in-laws out the door. She went to the living room where Mazda was playing on the floor by herself. Letty picked her up and nuzzled the baby's chubby cheeks.
"It's time for your bath Mazdi."
"Are you gonna take me a bath Mami?" Jensen asked her.
"No, Papi will do it."
"But I want you to do it."
"Mazda needs hers now. Papi will take care of you later, ok?"
"Ma, ma, ma, ma", the baby babbled.
"Yes, baby girl. Can you say bath?"
"She's so dumb. It's not that hard to say bath."
"Jensen that's not nice! Apologize."
"I don't want to."
"Apologize to her."
"I'm sorry." The boy mumbled.
"Now go play. It's almost your bed time." Letty said before heading upstairs.
In the kitchen Dom had pulled Alexus aside. "So you want to explain to me why you think it's ok to act the way you've been acting?"
"I'm just so over everything."
"What do you mean everything?"
"Everything is about them. If it's not Jensen, then it's Mazda. But at least she's a baby, I get that."
"So you're saying you haven't been getting enough attention?"
"I don't know, maybe."
"So who's games do we schedule everything around?"
"It's not football season, and you guys don't even make it to all the games."
"We make most of them."
"Not all of them."
"You like those sneakers on your feet, right? This house, your room, your video games, all come from my paycheck. If I don't work all that goes away, so sometimes I have to miss a game. I don't want to miss them, but I don't want you to go hungry either." Alexus rolled his eyes. "Are you jealous of the babies in the house?"
"No", he lied.
"I can go out and buy you some pampers if you want?"
"Oh God!" The young boy exasperated.
"I'm serious. I don't know why you're jealous. Out of the three, you're by far the most spoiled."
"Me?" Alexus exclaimed.
"You get everything you want. Who got to ride with dolphins for his tenth birthday?"
"It was my birthday!" The boy argued.
"I never got that. I was lucky if I got more than a cake. Jensen just got a barbeque for his fifth birthday, and trust me buddy you got more than that for yours."
"I could go on. I have plenty of examples."
"No, that's not necessary."
"I don't want you acting up because I will send you to Mama's house."
"No, anything but that. She made me kneel on rice for like an hour. Do you know how much that hurts?" Alexus begged. Letty's mother, Ana, was known for her primitive disciplining habits.
"So we understand each other?"
"Yes", Alexus affirmed with a solid nod.
"Good, now go get ready for bed."
"Ok" Alexus said before dashing off to his room. Dom found Jensen and got him dressed in his pjs. Letty was nursing Mazda when her best friend Simone gave her a call.
"I hate you. You just had to say that didn't you?"
"'I fucked my man that night.'"
"I believe I said, 'I fucked my husband that night.'"
"No class, why you always gotta be that ratchet one? This is why you keep getting reality show offers."
"Simmy shut up. You would have said worse things. So I'm assuming it's on the news."
"Just E!, TMZ, ET, ESPN, and Fox." Simone told her casually.
"Oh, so it's not news." Letty said sarcastically. She let out a heavy sigh. "I guess the boys aren't watching TV for the next few days."
"My poor God baby."
"He knows who he has for a mom. What I said may not have been pretty, but if I'm not supposed to be fucking my man than who is?"
"I hate you. If I still worked for you I'd be so pissed right now."
"But you don't 'cause your ass got knocked up."
"You shouldn't talk. You're basically a baby mill."
"Whatever, I'm trying to put my daughter to sleep. I'll call you tomorrow."
"Congrats on your win by the way."
"Now you just gotta win the Sprint Series."
"Don't you worry. I plan to." Simone laughed on the other end before hanging up. Letty rocked Mazda to sleep while the child lightly suckled at her breast. "You're the prettiest baby I've ever seen." She cooed. The baby's eyes fluttered closed. "You look more like Mia everyday."
"Let, the boys are in bed. I'm gonna go shower." Dom interrupted her by peeping through the door.
"She's almost out. I'll be right in." A few minutes later the baby was placed in her crib, and Letty left to share a bath with Dom.
"You hear that?" He asked her when she sank into the tub.
"Let's see how long this lasts."
"I give it no more than three hours. I don't think the boys are really asleep."
"Yeah they are pretty good at faking it."
"Aww, haven't we taught them so well." Letty said proudly.
"They're definitely going places." Dom said with a kiss.
"So am I getting some or what?" Letty asked.
"I don't know Let. Last time Alexus came running because you couldn't keep it down." He teased.
"You were being an animal."
"Just how you like it", Dom smirked.
"I don't know for how much longer their going to believe the whole 'wrestling' excuse for."
"Alexus is definitely suspicious." Letty laughed before she brought her husband into a fierce kiss.
"I love you."
"Get over here." He said bringing her to him. "You know we still racing tomorrow, right?"
"I'm so serious."
