Chapter 13: The Prince and the Princess
"And the prince stood in the garden of roses awaiting the answer from his Princess. And knowing she could never deny her prince, she nodded her head yes and they sealed the deal with a kiss. And they lived happily ever after."
"Steven you're not telling them those silly stories are you?" Jackie said from her spot next to the door.
"Of course I am," Hyde said as he walked to her and took her in his arms, "it's the story of us. Plus they wanted to hear it."
"Yeah mama, daddy tells the best stories," Their 6 year old daughter Layla said.
"Yeah mom, dad really does." Steve said as he held his 2 year old sister Katherine and sat next to his 4 year old brother Jordan.
"Fine, but it's time for bed." Jackie said as they all got up and gave their parents kisses and hugs before going upstairs.
"Good night!" Hyde yelled up to them as they were going up. Hyde pulled Jackie to him one more as she smiled at him.
"Steven…you know I still remember that day like it was yesterday."
"Oh yeah, me too…the way you…"
"Steven! You are such a pig!" Hyde laughed and kissed her softly.
"I'm sorry, so what exactly do you remember from that day?" Hyde asked.
"Oh puddin pop I remember everything."
1982- Jackie's Apartment
"Will you marry me?" Hyde asked as he looked up at her.
Jackie looked down and smiled. She couldn't believe this was happening. Steven Hyde…her Zen master Steven Hyde was not only proposing, but he was doing so in a garden of white and red roses. She nodded yes as he watched her.
"Are you sure?"
Jackie felt tears begin to fall from her eyes. "Yes Steven, of course I'll marry you."
Hyde slipped the ring on her finger then stood up to pull her into his arms. "Thank you."
"Everything," Hyde said before he leaned down and kissed her.
"Mommy, Daddy," Steve said as he walked in the room, "What's going on?"
Jackie pulled away from Hyde. "Come here sweetie." Jackie said as she opened her arms to her son who ran to her. She picked him up and smiled. "Your father and I have something we need to tell you."
Steve looked at them with wide open eyes as he waited for their news.
"Son, your mother and I are getting married." Hyde said.
Steve looked at his father and frowned. "Uh is that what Uncle Eric and Aunt Donna did?" Jackie nodded as they watched Steve think about it. "Okay...does that mean you're not leaving?"
"That means I'm never leaving." Hyde said.
Steve cheered and hugged them each before they decided to eat dinner then go to bed.
Once they got Steve to bed, Jackie and Hyde spent hours 'protesting' as Hyde would put it or 'proving their love', as Jackie would put it. Either way they officially sealed the deal.
Jackie sighed as she rested her head on Hyde's chest.
"What are you thinking about?"
"How'd you know I was thinking?"
"Because I know you and I know that sigh…So come on, what are you thinking about?"
"How romantic you were earlier."
"Oh god," Hyde said as he closed his eyes.
"Steven it was perfect." Jackie said as she sat up.
"You do realize I got the idea from someone else."
"My friend Becca gave me the idea. She came into Grooves before I was leaving to see Randy, who by that ways it turns out he's gay."
"I know…I didn't believe it but he said he's been gay for a few years he just didn't know how to tell me. Anyway she suggested that I get you some flowers. I guess I went a little over board."
"Is she an ex?"
"She's…uh…Jackie she wasn't you."
"So the proposal was all you?"
"I…uh I had just gotten done ordering the flowers and I saw this jewelry story, so I went in and I wasn't going to get anything, but then I saw that ring and it all clicked. I realized how wrong I had been in the past so I decided to change it."
"Don't expect that a lot."
"Oh baby, I won't." Jackie said as she kissed Hyde. "Steven."
"There's something you need to know."
Hyde sat up and looked at her. "What?"
"I…um…I'm pregnant." Hyde looked at her as she waited for him to say something. "Steven?"
"Man I'm good!"
"I'm kidding. Jackie I missed out on Steve's first 3 years. That won't happen this time. I will be here every step of the way. You won't be alone this time."
"I know baby, I know."
Jackie smiled as they laid in the exact same position they had 7 years ago as she thought of everything that had gotten her to this point.
"What are you thinking about?"
"Yeah, you and how wonderful you are, and how lucky I am." Jackie said as she leaned up and kissed him.
"Oh I know how lucky you are."
"But doll, so am I."
"I'm glad I never changed you."
"Nothing, I love you."
"I love you too." Hyde said as he leaned down to kiss her.
"Jackie we already have four kids, isn't five pushing it?"
"But Steven the damage is already done."
"I'm already pregnant puddin pop."
"Man maybe I'm too good." Hyde laughed as Jackie hit him.
"I love you Steven Hyde."
Hyde pulled Jackie to him and smiled. "I love you too doll."
Hyde leaned down and kissed Jackie.
And they lived happily ever after…The End!
