A/N - Here is is, the last chapter of The OC, The Odd Couple! I have never got so many reviews on any other story, you guys were beyond awesome! Thanks so so much. A sequel? Tempting, considering the beginning is an odd place to end...but I'm not promising anything. We'll see. You guys deserve a sequel because you're such stellar reviewers. =) Don't let me down on this final chapter! I hope you all liked my story!

Special thanks to HOTTERTHNU, fanficgirl1, benzbabidoll, BlueStarGirl, maddie, and ally for your total devotion for reviewing almost every chapter, if not all! You guys are the best! =)

(Luke's POV)


And I thought scoring in polo felt great.


And I thought Marissa and Holly were beautiful.


And I thought I loved Julie more than anything.



It's like looking into a mirror.

Sandy didn't want me to hold her

Until the results were back

But as soon as we saw her

There was no question

Those are my eyes, wide, opaque.

My fingers

My toes

My little elbows and eyelashes

And faint little eyebrows

My perfectly round cue-ball head

My determined little fist

My pink belly

My thudding baby bird heart

That I'm holding in my arms

Nice to meet you

Nice for everyone else to know

What I knew all along...

My daughter.
