I'm leaving tomorrow to go to Laguna/Malibu for a little vacation., so I'm just going to post the last chapter now. Hope everyone likes it, and leaves lots of reviews. I had such fun writing this story, and look forward to doing another Naley soon, hopefully. Also, all my old stories that haven't been updated in forever? I haven't given up on them. If anyone even cares, lol. Enjoy.

Something I've Always Had

Part Four: The Wedding Night

"Listen, we don't have to do anything, alright? That's not why I married you."

"You've gotta be kidding me."

"Look what I got myself into!"

Haley grinned as she loosened Nathan's tie, pulling it off of him. He chuckled, removing his own jacket, and then grabbing her hands.

"I love you."

Her eyes grew glossy, and she stood her tip-toes to kiss his lips. "I love you too. I'm so happy."

"Me too." He kissed her once more, as she began to unbutton his shirt, her hands shaking the slightest bit.

It was enough for him to notice.

"It's okay," He whispered, pulling her hands away, "I won't hurt you, Haley."

"I know. I'm just - I'm scared."

They were at the bed now. He gently pushed her back, and then climbed on top of her, looking deep into her chocolate brown eyes.

"Me too." Nathan said honestly.

Haley almost laughed. "Why are you scared?"

"Because I've never made love before. I mean, I've had sex, but that's it. It's never meant this much."

Haley looked up at him for a second, before pushing her lips onto his forcefully. "I want everything with you."

"Me too." He murmured, pulling his pants off slowly.

"You're it for me, Nate. I've never been so happy in my life as when I'm with you. And I want you to make love to me."

"I can do that." They sat there for a few moments, just staring into each other's eyes. It was almost awkward.

And then, softly and slowly, Nathan kissed her, before sitting up and removing his wife beater. She looked over his bare chest and smiled. The beautiful man before her was hers. He was her Nathan.

He leaned back down, clasping their hands together, and pinning them back over her head. Then, once more he pulled back, hooking his fingers slowly underneath her dress, and pulling it over her head slowly. Just in her bra and underwear, she looked almost unsure as she breathed heavily.

Nathan swallowed as he undid her bra, pulling it off. Self consciously, she had to stop herself from covering her chest with her hands.

"You're so beautiful." Nathan whispered, running his fingers through her soft hair.

He kissed her, helping her to rid herself of her underwear, and running his hands over her silky, smooth body.

"Are you sure?" He asked once more.

"I'm sure." She nodded comfortably, wrapping her arms around his neck, and holding him tightly.

Nathan used his fingers first, pleasuring her. She gasped and moaned in appreciation, and he smiled.

Then, carefully, he slid himself inside of her. She whimpered at first, obviously uncomfortable. He held on to her, whispering sweet nothings into her ear.

And then afterwards, they lay together, entangled in each other's arms. Haley ran her fingers up and down Nathan's arm.

"That wasn't bad at all."

"No, it wasn't."

"I really love you, Nathan. I mean, I'm so happy that my first time was with you. I'm so happy that I was blessed enough to be with you. You mean everything to me. I love that we're married now."

"I feel the exact same way, Hales. I want you to know that I'll never hurt you. Ever. I know I've screwed up before, but you've really changed me. Because of you, I'm this totally different person. And I'm so happy that I'm not the same asshole I used to be. I owe it all to you."

"No. You changed yourself. I just helped a little."

Nathan nudged her. "You helped a lot."

Haley grinned, kissing him softly. "We're married, Nate."

"Yeah, Hales. We are."

It was almost scary, and ever so adventurous. Two sixteen year old teenagers had fallen in love and married.

They spent most of the rest of the night in each other's arms, staring into each other's eyes, and making love.

They were one of those couples destined to last forever. And it was apparent even from the beginning.
