Nikki woke and stretched. She looked at Mark lying beside her and smiled. God she loved him. He was so handsome lying there. His lashes fanning his cheeks and his arm threw carelessly behind his head. Her heart actually ached with love for him. She breathed in his scent which was so uniquely his. God they were so different, he drove her mad with his overbearing ways, but there was no way she would ever want to be apart from him. Love was so strange. Nikki leaned over and pressed a kiss to his lips giggling at the tickle of his moustache and goatee. When she pulled back his green eyes were staring into hers.

"I'm dizzy, crazy in love with you Mark. I would do anything for you, even quit working ringside." Nikki said.

Mark looked at her in surprise. He thought they would have to fight for two or three days to get this resolved.

"I'm going to tell you a secret Mark because I trust you. I would do anything you ask me to do, I love you that much. Sometimes I feel like I'm fighting this battle with myself to be independent and self sufficient, but then I get around you and all I care about is lying in your arms. You make me feel like I'm protected and you would fight all my battles for me and I would never have to worry about anything and that scares me, then I feel like I have to push you back,  or I would lose myself completely in you." Nikki said.

Nikki reached up and caressed his cheek catching a teardrop with her finger.

"Twice in less than 24 hours girl, nobody has ever wrung a tear from me but you." Mark whispered.

"Nikki lets get Anna and go home to Houston. People spend there whole life working and what the hell do they have to show for it? We both have money. We don't need to work anymore. I want to wake up beside you in our home everyday. I want to walk my kids to the bus stop, go to PTA meetings and talent shows. I want to be there to scare the hell out of Anna's first boyfriend. I want to have a houseful of children and grandchildren that look like you. What do you say little girl?" Mark asked. Nikki kissed him sweetly on the lips. "I say yes." Nikki said.

One year later at the Callaway home.

"Come on Anna. I think that's Paw paw at the door." Nikki said carrying Luke her 3 month old in her arms.

Anna scampered after her.

"Is Grandma and JJ coming too?" Anna asked.

"Of course sweetie." Nikki said smiling.

Nikki opened the door.

"Daddy." She said giving him a one armed hug because she was carrying Luke.

"Hey baby girl." John said.

"Paw paw." Anna said jumping up and down.

John swung Anna up into his arms.

"Hey princess." John said kissing her.

"Hello Mother." Nikki said hugging her.

"Nicole you look wonderful." Monica said holding JJ.

"Switch." Nikki said laughing.

Monica laughed too holding out JJ and Nikki handed her Luke.

"Hey little brother." Nikki said kissing JJ. He looked just like his daddy.

"Let me see that grandson of mine." John said grinning as Monica handed Luke to him.

"He's the spiting image of Mark aint he?" John said.

Yes he is." Nikki said smiling.

Mark came in.

"Hey guys, good to see ya." Mark said.

Mark came over and tickled JJ.

"He sure is a cute little fellow." Mark said smiling. "Looks just like his big sister." He said winking at me.

"Come on John lets grab a beer." Mark said.

Nikki and her mother took the kids in the den and sat talking about how they were developing. Nikki still didn't know what to make of her mother sometimes. Her and John had showed up on there doorstep after a month and announced they were married. Nikki had never asked what went on for that month but her mother was different when she came back. She practically doted on John it was obvious they were in love. She was good with JJ it was like she was a different person. I guess Mark was right when he said John tamed her. As for me and Mark we kept to our decision and both quit our jobs. We stay at home and spend our days as parents loving and raising our children and we spend our nights loving each other to the fullest.

I was setting at the piano after dinner playing a few tunes on it. I had got it to teach Anna to play, but I enjoyed playing myself.

"Play a song Mommy and sing." Anna demanded.

I smiled, okay let me sing a song for daddy." I said.

I started playing the song and began singing.

I'd like to run away from you

But if I were to leave you I would die

I'd like to break the chains you put around me

And yet I'll never try

No matter what you do you drive me crazy

I'd rather be alone

But then I know my life would be so empty

As soon as you were gone

Nikki grinned at Mark as she sang. He smiled back his eyes full of love.

Impossible to live with you

But I could never live without you

For whatever you do / For whatever you do

I never, never, never

Want to be in love with anyone but you

You make me sad

You make me strong

You make me mad

You make me long for you / You make me long for you

You make me live

You make me die

You make me laugh

You make me cry for you / You make me cry for you

Mark came and sat beside Nikki and put his arm around her.

I hate you

Then I love you

Then I love you

Then I hate you

Then I love you more

For whatever you do

I never, never, never

Want to be in love with anyone but you

You treat me wrong

You treat me right

You let me be

You make me fight with you / I could never live without you

You make me high

You bring me down

You set me free

You hold me bound to you

I hate you

Then I love you

Then I love you

Then I hate you

Then I love you more / I love you more

For whatever you do / For whatever you do

I never, never, never

Want to be in love with anyone but you

I never, never, never

I never, never, never

I never, never, never

Want to be in love with anyone but you

But you

Nikki finished the song and pressed a long lingering kiss on Mark's lips.

"Little girl, I want you." Mark said

"The feeling is mutual." Nikki said grinning.

Mark went and scooped Anna up giggling.

"Time for bed munchkin." Mark said.

"Give Mommy a kiss." Mark said holding her up to Nikki.

Nikki smiled and gave Anna a hug and a kiss.

"Nite Mommy." Anna said.

"Goodnight Sweetie." Nikki said.

"Meet you in say half an hour." Mark said kissing Nikki.

"I'll be there." Nikki said winking.

Nikki smiled as she watched mark carry Anna upstairs. She went up to check on Luke who was sleeping peacefully. She leaned over and kissed him.

"Yes it's a privileged life." She whispered and went to meet her husband.
