So, I decided to make this the last chapter. I think it works well, much better than the ending I previously had planned. I know it's short, but it's what makes me happy, so I hope it leaves you happy too!
Please review, let me know what you thought.Now I will get to work on updating my other Naley stories...look for updates with them soon!
A Way of Working Out
Chapter 19 - The End
One week before the wedding….
"Hey babe, what's up?" Nathan answering the phone in his office
"Nathan, we need to talk," she says.
"What is it honey?" Fearing the worst, he hoped everything was okay.
"Well, um…when could you be home?"
"I'm on my way now."
"They don't mind you leaving?"
"You know Jake won't mind. I'll see you soon."
"Okay, I love you."
"Love you too," Nathan hung up the phone and went in search of Jake. Finding him in his office, he knocked before entering, "Hey, I need to take the afternoon off."
"Is everything okay?"
"I hope so. Haley just called, and wanted to know when I could be home. She says we need to talk."
"Say no more. But call me later, let me know everything's okay."
"Will do," and Nathan walked out of the room, quickly heading for the parking garage.
Nathan immediately called Tim, "Heads up…"
"Hello to you too," Tim joked, but noting the tone in his voice asked, "What's up?"
"I don't know. Nathan just left here. Haley called, said they needed to talk and asked him to come home."
"Oh God, please tell me everything's okay."
"I sure hope so. I hope she's just freaking about something small and insignificant about the wedding. I remember Peyton freaking out about the smallest things in the last days."
"You don't think she's calling it off, again, do you?"
"I don't think so," thinking of the last time he added, "God I hope not, for all of our sakes. He's supposed to call later. I'll let you know what I hear."
"Thanks for letting me know."
Nathan walks in the front door to see Haley sitting on the couch, head in her hands. Sitting next to her, he wrapped his arms around her.
She looked up at him with a tear stained face, "Oh Nathan," she buried her head in his neck.
"What wrong Hales?"
Lifting up her face to wipe away a tear he smiled, "That's great." As her tears start again he responds, "Or not," he paused before saying, "I thought we decided that we'd try for a baby right away."
"We did," she sniffled, "But everyone's going to know that we got pregnant before we got married."
"Who cares?" He looked at her, "I sure don't, and I'm guessing that our friends won't either. Heck, I bet I can quote Peyton exactly," clearing his throat he said, "It's about damn time."
Haley smiled, "Yeah, you're probably right," she kissed him lightly, "Thanks. Sorry I freaked out. I just wasn't expecting it. That's all."
"But you're okay with it, right?"
"Oh yeah, I can't wait to bring our first baby into the world. The only thing I want more right now, is you," she kissed him again.
"Mmmmm," Nathan groaned, "I like the sound of that."
"I thought you might," she grinned as she led him towards the stairs.
