Trish had just become the women's champion again and was just pumped up. They didn't tell her until the meeting right before the show, and the fans loved it! She got behind the curtains and ran to Brock and jumped on him and planted a big kiss on his cheek, "Oh my god, did you see it?"

Brock twirled her around and laughed, "Yes I seen it. I seen it the first time you did it, and then I seen it on the replay 3 more times. I'm so happy for you."

"Thanks, I just can't stop smiling." Trish said with a huge smile. People were coming up to her and congratulating her on her big win over Molly Holly. ( Nora Greenwald)

Nora walked over and hugged her, "Congrats! What a match that was."

Trish hugged her back, "Thanks for being so great."

Angie and Aly went over to her and Aly hugged her, "Congrats! I'm so happy for you. And why didn't you tell me?" She said playfully pushing her. "I might have to challenge you for that title."

"You want to step?" Trish said with a laugh. "Bring it on."

They both laughed and hugged. Brock put his arm around Trish, "Wow, I'm lucky enough to spend the night with the Women's Champion, doesn't everyone wish they were me?" Brock said in a cocky tone.

Everyone laughed.

The mystery person finally decided that it was the right time to reveal himself.

He stepped out from behind the shadows, "So I see it's just one big party isn't it?"

They turned to look. "Dad?" Aly said.

"What are you doing here?" Trish said to him.

"Gee, I think the real question is what is he doing here with you?" Dave said angrily.

"He's here as a friend. He came out to watch Aly's gymnastics meet, and decided to accompany us to Raw so he could see some of his friends." Trish shot back at him. "What happened to rehab?"

"I'm fine, so I checked myself out." He said shortly. He turned and looked at Angie, "Oh, I'm so glad you're here because we need to talk."

"We are not talking here. Nope, no way, we're not talking until my lawyer is present." Angie angrily. "Especially not in front of Aly."

"Dave, really. I don't think here is the time or place to take out your frustrations." Trish said pulling on his arm.

Dave snatched his arm from her, "So tell me, how many times have you fucked him while I've been gone?" He sneered at her.

Trish's eyes opened wide, "David, what the hell are you thinking. I'm at work for god's sake, this isn't the place for this kind of crap."

"Gee why not, you have no problem flaunting it everywhere you go, like at the meet, or at the bowling alley, or at the restaurant with the other people around here, so we might as well clear the air." Dave hollered at her.

Security walked over to Trish, "Is he disturbing you ma'am?"

"He just has really bad timing." She growled. "Dave you and me outside right NOW." Trish said to him.

"No, we can talk about this right here. You're the one that likes to bring everyone else into everything." Dave snarled at her.

"Dad stop." Aly said with tears streaming down her face. "What happened to you? Where's the dad that I used to have?" Then she turned and ran off.

"Aly, ALY." Dave yelled after her.

Angie turned and shot him a wicked look, "And that's why I'm making sure she's staying the hell away from you." And she ran off after Aly.

"Now will you go outside with me?" Trish said to him.

He turned and walked outside with her. "Alright we're out here, it's thundering and lightening, and it's going to rain, so I'm going to make this quick, what's going on between you and Brock?" He snarled at her.

"Look, we're friends. Nothing more." Trish said to him practically in a pleading tone. "But I do have to be honest with you about something."

"What's that?" Dave replied.

"Something happened between Brock and I." She said softly. "It was one time, and nothing has happened since." Trish confessed.

Dave stopped and looked at her, "Why did it happen?" He asked in a gentler tone.

"Honestly? I got off of the phone with you and we had argued and I had had to tell you some things that I knew weren't good to tell you. And I was mad because you had never asked how I was doing through all of this, or how I was holding up trying to keep the girls from falling apart and I went out drinking with him, and we had a good time." Trish said to him with tears in her eyes. "Dave, I'm sorry. I didn't do it to hurt you, but I realized how much I miss how it used to be. I miss the old "us." I'm not liking what we've become."

Dave hung his head, "Trish, I have to confess something to you too. I was with another woman."

Trish's head snapped up, "WHAT?!? When? How?"

"I have a female friend who's friendship is parallel with how you and Brock are. I never told you about her before but her name is Carrie." Dave explained.

"Why didn't you tell me about her? Why did it happen?" Trish asked him.

"I don't know why I never told you about her. And her and I used to be friends with benefits, and I guess everything just felt right and it happened and then she left for business." Dave confessed. "Trish, I'm sorry I didn't tell you earlier about her."

Trish started pacing back and forth, she didn't know what to say. She knew that she couldn't be upset because she had done it too, and in a way, it didn't hurt. Trish's eyes filled with tears. "Dave do you remember way back when? You had a blind date and I had a blind date, and we didn't tell each other for some unknown reason, and it turned out we were going to meet each other? When we first got together." Trish said to him wiping her tears.

Dave smiled, "Yeah, yeah I do. Stacy had planned it out."

"Maybe you didn't tell me about her because you have feelings for her? Dave, I want you to answer me something, and I don't care if you have to sit and think about it." Trish said looking him in the eyes, "But I need to know, do you really think that you and I have something worth saving?"

All of a sudden the sky opened up and it began to pour. But Dave and Trish didn't care. If anything it was quite fitting.

Dave went to Trish and pulled her into his arms and passionately kissed her. He kissed her with all of his love for her, all of his pent up passion for her.

Trish kissed him back hungrily. She didn't know what it was, but she loved this man more than anything. She didn't want to let him go. She wanted to be held in his arms forever.

The two separated and Dave took a step back and looked towards the ground. Trish didn't know what was going through his head, and from the looks on his face it wasn't good. She started to cry again. She turned so Dave couldn't see her cry again.

Dave grabbed Trish by the hand, he had tears streaming down his face, he dropped to one knee and looked up at Trish, "Hear me out on this one. I know that I have been a greedy, selfish, lying asshole to you, and to my family, and I know that I've taken you for granted. I know what kind of a person you are and if it hadn't been for my ways, you never would have been in the arms of another guy. I know that I haven't been the type of boyfriend you deserve, and I sure as hell haven't been the kind of father that you would want around, but I love you. I love you so much."

Angie had found Aly and they were going to go outside but Brock stopped them. So now they were all gathered around the door listening to Dave confess his love to Trish. They couldn't help but eavesdrop. Angie found herself getting tears in her eyes. She remembered back to when he felt those things for her.

"Trish, I know that I don't deserve this, but I need to show you that I've changed. I know that my temper got the best of me earlier, and I am working on it, but I want you to know how much I love you." He reached in his pocket and pulled out a blue velvet box, "I do believe in us, I know that you and I can have what we used to have, and make it even better." He opened the box revealing a beautiful diamond ring, "Now I know that we have some work that needs to be done, but Patricia Anne Stratigias, I love you with all of my heart, will you marry me?"

Trish was stunned. A proposal was the last thing she ever thought she would get out of him, let alone now. She was soaking wet and he was soaking wet, but none of that mattered right now. Trish looked up at him and smiled, "Yes Dave, I'll give you a chance, and yes I'll marry you."

Dave picked her up and spun her around kissing her. Everyone started to applaud. All of a sudden Randy came bursting through the group of people, "TRISH!!" He yelled to her.

Trish looked over at him, "What?"

"Melissa's in labor, we've gotta go!!" He exclaimed.

"WHAT?!?!" Trish shouted. She looked at Dave, "We're going to have a baby!"

"Well let's go." Dave said with a smile. "Angie, Aly, if you're coming with us, let's go."

Aly smiled and grabbed Angie's hand and ran with them.

Brock laughed and waved, "Good luck and I want a phone call!!"

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* On the plane ride, Dave sat down and talked with Aly and talked with Angie and was able to work things out with them. Trish went through the baby book and smiled with the name she had chosen. Trish looked at her finger and seen the ring sitting on it. She knew she was risking a lot, but she also knew that she loved him.

They landed and rushed to the hospital. When they arrived at the labor and delivery ward they found her parents, Jenni and Natalie all sitting out front waiting. Trish's mom stood up and hugged Trish, "She's having a really hard time and she's asking for you."

Trish nodded, 'Ok. Thanks mom."

Trish walked in there with the boys trailing behind her. Melissa looked over to them, "I can't do this. I'm so tired." She wailed.

Trish held her hand and gave her some ice chips, "Come on Missy, you can do this. I'm right here for you, Randy is here for you and Dave is here for you, we're all here to support you."

Another contraction started and the doctor told Melissa, "Push with all of your might."

Melissa pushed with everything she had left, there were tears streaming down her face and she was squeezing the life out of Trish and Randy's hands.

Randy kissed Melissa's forehead. Dave smiled, "The head is out, we just need the rest of him."

Melissa smiled and with the next contraction she pushed again and the doctor quickly cleaned out his mouth and they all heard the baby cry. The doctor laid him on her chest, "IT'S A BOY."

Everyone cheered and Randy kissed Melissa, "You did it." He said with a big smile.

Melissa smiled with tears streaming down her face, she hugged the baby and leaned on Randy. "He's perfect."

Dave put his arm around Trish. He knew that she still harbored fears that Melissa would change her mind at the last minute and keep the baby.

The doctor came over and took the baby to clean him up and get him weighed. Trish hugged Melissa, "Congratulations, you did great."

"Trish, I'm so glad that you guys made it in time. I was trying to go slow at first, but towards the end I was getting so tired that I couldn't wait and you came in the nick of time." Melissa said.

"How do you feel?" Trish asked her.

"Actually, I feel like I'm running off of an adrenaline rush." Melissa said with a laugh.

The doctor turned towards Melissa, "So Missy, what's his name?"

Melissa turned to Trish and Dave, "Well mommy and daddy, what's his name?"

Trish smiled with tears in her eyes, "Brandon, Brandon David."

The doctor smiled, "Well, Brandon David is 8lbs. 12 oz. And 22 inches long. And he looks great."

Trish smiled and held Dave, "Can you believe it?"

"Where did you come up with the name?" Dave asked.

"Well, Brandon because half of the name is Randy and he was a big part of Melissa's life and David as the middle name for obvious reasons." Trish said with a smile.

"Wow, I don't know how you did it, but that's really neat. Trish, I'm honored that you included me." Randy said reaching over and squeezing Trish's hand.

"How about you boys go out and tell everyone while Trish and I talk for a couple minutes?" Melissa suggested.

Randy smiled and kissed her gently and Dave squeezed her hand, "You did great, thank you." Dave said to her and walked out with Randy.

Melissa looked up at Trish, "Ok, the last time I seen you, it was pretty much you and Brock. Now you're here with Dave and you're all happy, what's going on?"

Trish smiled, "Well, Dave showed up at Raw, we got into a fight, we confessed our infidelities, I asked him if he even thought that there was an "us" that could be saved. It started to pour outside, we went back and forth, we kissed and then he proposed to me. And you know me well enough that I do love him and so I said yes but the wedding won't be until we are working well." She said showing Melissa the ring.

"As long as you are happy, that's all that matters to me." She said with a smile, "And that Brandon has a good home and I know that he will."

"Now Melissa, I understand if you've changed your mind. You don't need to be scared to tell me." Trish started to say when Melissa cut her off.

"Trish, I talked to Randy because I was a little confused and scared. I was scared that once I saw the baby I wouldn't be able to give him up. I was confused because I really want to graduate and go to OVW and move in with Randy like I had planned. He listened to me and helped me, and he gave me something when he left this morning." She said while pulling a necklace out from under the gown with a beautiful diamond solitare ring attached, "My fingers were to swelled this morning so it didn't fit. It's a promise ring, to promise that we would get married and have as many kids as I want. Trish, this baby is meant to be yours. And I can't wait to watch the two of you grow together." Melissa said with a big smile. "Don't get me wrong, it's not that I don't love him, but he is sent from above to be your child."

Trish's eyes welled with tears and she held her, "I love you Missy. Thank you so much for this precious gift."

The doctor walked the baby over to Trish and put him in her arms, "Here ya go mommy."

Everyone walked back into the room. Dave walked over to Trish with the girls and they all stood around her and looked at the baby.

All Trish could do was smile and think to herself, "I found love in the oddest of places, and thank God that I did."
