Okay, so it's been a while since I've written pure Naley fluff. That's what this is. I know I have a bunch of stories going, but this one's already complete. It just needs posting. Anyway, it's a continuation of episode 2.17's naley flashbacks, as in, what happened in those flashbacks that we didn't see? Please review, and enjoy. It's my christmas present to you.

Something I've Always Had

Part One: The Fun Shower

"If we're going to be late, we're going to have fun doing it."

Haley grinned, kissing Nathan. "Oh, is that so?"


The water ran down through her hair, and over her beautiful body, causing Nathan a little more happiness than he'd previously hoped for. Haley noticed this, and looked down.

"I guess we're going to be pretty late." She giggled and Nathan shrugged.

"Not if I do this!" He twisted one of the shower knobs, causing the nice, warm water to turn ice cold in seconds.

Haley gasped, jumping up. "Nathan! I can't believe you just did that!"

She turned them around, pushing him into the cold water. He made a face of discomfort and quickly turned the knob once more, so the water was warm.

"I was just kidding around."

"So was I." Haley leaned up to kiss his lips, and he smirked.

"So, what have you been doing in here alone for so long?" Nathan challenged, crossing his arms over his bare chest.

"All sorts of things." Haley feigned innocence.

"Without me?"

"Well I couldn't exactly shave my legs with you in here watching."

"Were you really shaving your legs?"

"No. I was just thinking. And enjoying the warm water. " Haley grinned, pulling Nathan down to kiss her. He smiled, pulling away.

"Hey guess what, Hales?" He said softly.

"What?" She expected him to pull another joke. To turn the water cold, or run out and leave her with no towel.

"We're married." He grinned boyishly, and Haley found her smile growing as well.

That's right. They were. They'd been married for less then a few days, and already, they were in complete heaven. This marriage had already been more then they could have imagined.

They knew there would be ups and down. But they were expecting them. They could handle anything, together.

They were Nathan and Haley.

"We're married." She repeated, and he leaned down to kiss her.

"And we're very late."

Haley smiled, sliding the shower door open, and stepping out, grabbing a towel, and then handing one to Nathan, who turned the shower off and wrapped it around his waist.

When he stepped out of the shower, Haley was gone. He looked through the open bathroom door, and barely had time to see her tiny form walking down the hallway.

Nathan followed after her, reaching the bedroom. When he entered, she was standing by the bed, the towel still wrapped around her, her eyes completely clouded with love.

"Let's be later." She said softly, dropping her towel and leaning up to kiss Nathan passionately.

"Hales, if we start - I don't know that I'd be able to stop." He whispered, attempting to conceal a moan and she began to kiss down his neck.

"Then don't." She giggled, wrapped her arms around his neck, and allowing him to pick her up, dropping her back onto the bed, and then climbing on top of her.

"I love you so much."

"I love you too."

Nathan laid soft butterfly kisses down her neck, pinning her tiny arms back with his stronger ones. They laced their fingers together, and Nathan found his lips once more on hers.

She wrapped her legs around his waist and moaned softly as he nibbled on her ear.

They were interrupted by the sound of the phone ringing, and Nathan's head shot up. Haley giggled softly at his pained expression, and pushed him off of her. She reached over, grabbing the phone off it's cradle.

"Hello?" A pause. "Mom? Yeah, we're on our way," another pause. "Of course not, mom. Ew. Yeah, we'll be there soon. Love you too, bye." Haley put the phone back on it's cradle, and looked over at Nathan, smiling softly.

"No way. No. You said that we would be later. Haley.." Nathan whined.

"Nate, when we get back, we'll have lots of time to ourselves to do, whatever we want to do." She picked herself up off the bed, immediately scurrying towards the closet for some clothes.

After a few minutes of pouting, Nathan stood as well.

"This sucks."

"Babe, come on. The reception will be fun. And we can always say we're tired, and retire early.."

"I guess." Nathan sulked.

"You going to get ready?" Haley eyed him, amused.

"Before I do that, I'm going to have to go take that cold shower."

"Make it quick." She smiled after him, and Nathan shook his head.

"First she leaves me all hot and heavy, and now she's demanding things of me. We must be married." Nathan muttered loud enough so Haley could hear.

She grinned, shaking her head. "Yeah, we must be."
