A/N: This is the last chapter! I am planning on changing the title to Is Forever Enough? (Thanks S'Dot Yam). I hope you all enjoy it! Please Review!
As Riley took the front steps two at a time and hurried to Mr. Shen's office, only one word echoed in his thoughts over and over again. No.
However, just as he came to the door, he heard a gunshot. Bang! And a cry of pain. His thoughts and heartbeat became more frantic. No! No, not Haley! He quickened his steps, dodged the other people that had come at the sound of the gunshot and entered the office.
His tears flowed at the sight of Haley's crumpled body on the ground.
Riley ran to her side as Haley dropped the gun that was still in her hand. He cradled her in his arms and she buried her head in his chest. They sat that way for what seemed like a life time.
The agent in the neighboring office had heard the gunshot, and came to see what had happened. He introduced himself to Riley as Jimmy, and Riley explained the situation.
"You should probably take her to the hospital and get her checked out," Jimmy suggested. "She has some pretty bad bruising on her arms."
"Thanks," Riley said. Then he rubbed Haley's shoulder. "Can you get up?" He asked her tenderly.
She nodded, but when she opened her eyes and saw the blood and dead body of the man, she fainted.
Riley carried her to the car. Trying to be strong and prepare what he would say when she woke up.
Haley's eyelids batted a few times as she began to open her eyes. Riley had fallen asleep, one hand grasping Haley's, his head laying at Haley's side.
As she stirred, Riley woke to the movement.
"Hey, Haley. How do you feel?" He asked, concerned.
"I'm fine," she said, sounding a little groggy. "What happened?" She asked.
"What do you remember?" He asked.
"Well… I went back to the office for... something. I vaguely remember a phone call… and that's it. What happened?"
"Well… what happened was," He thought. What should he tell her? "Well, you got a phone call last night… and Mr. Shen wanted you to come in to… uh, to give you another assignment. You went in to tell them you couldn't… because of the baby. You… sat in front of his desk, the chair broke, and you hit your head. Pretty hard, too. You passed out, and so we brought you here," Riley said. He felt bad for lying to her, but he decided that if she had forgotten about it, there was no reason to bring it up again.
"Okay…" she said skeptically. Riley was afraid that she hadn't bought his lie for a moment, but then Haley smiled as she closed her eyes again and yawned. "When can I go home?"
About 8 Months Later
"Congratulations, Mrs. Poole! You have a baby boy!" A young nurse said.
"Where's Riley?" Haley asked.
"I'm right here," He said, with a face that looked concerned and happy at the same time. He walked to her side and grabbed her hand. "You look beautiful," he whispered.
Haley began to cry.
"What's wrong?" He asked with an urgent voice, squatting to be at her eye level.
"Nothing," she said. "It's just… I wasn't expecting you to be so happy, since…you know… you're not the father. I don't deserve that," Haley said.
Riley sighed, and took a moment just to stare into her eyes. "Well, what do you want to name him?" Riley asked. They had already decided, but he had sort of hoped that she would change her mind. Don't say Logan… Don't say Logan…Don't say-
"Logan." She said. "Logan Scott, right?"
"Right," He said.
Riley and Haley hadn't told anyone that Riley wasn't the father, and now Riley was regretting it. The kid was cute, and he liked him, but he started to get a very sad feeling when they introduced him to Ben and Abigail for the first time.
Haley rang the doorbell as Riley held the baby and had the diaper bag slung over his shoulder.
Ben and Abigail both appeared in the doorway and welcomed them. "Hey!" Ben said. "Is this the kid?" Ben asked.
"Scott," Riley said with a nod. They had started calling him by his middle name.
"He's cute!" Abigail said. "Can I hold him?" She asked.
"Sure," Riley said.
They all walked over to the couch and Riley handed him over to Abigail.
He had been sleeping, but he woke up with the shift of arms. "Wow. His eyes are so cute. You know, I think he has your eyes, Riley," She said.
"Actually..." Riley began.
"We've been thinking the same thing," Haley interrupted.
"He definitely has Riley's chin," Abigail added.
"I hadn't noticed that one," Haley said, glancing between Riley and the baby. "I guess you're right."
"I- I'm gonna go outside for a second," Riley said.
"Uh… I'll go with you," Ben said.
Once they were both standing outside on the patio, Ben said, "Riley, correct me if I'm wrong, but don't dads generally seem happier about the birth of their sons? Just wondering."
"He's not my son," Riley whispered.
"What?" Ben asked.
"It's killing me, Ben. To hear all that stuff about him having my eyes and chin and stuff. He doesn't. He has another guy's eyes and chin."
"Wait. You mean Scott isn't your son?"
"No. There was another guy that Haley worked with. They went to Paris together. A guy named Logan Williams," Riley continued to explain everything to Ben
"Why didn't you tell us?" Ben wanted to know.
"I don't know. We thought it would be easier this way," Riley said.
"Well, I don't know about that. But I do know one thing. There is a baby boy in there. He doesn't know any of this, and I can tell he loves you. You need to stop moping around. Logan is gone. His name is Scott Poole. You are the only father he is ever going to have."
Riley nodded and smiled as he walked back into the house.
"Haley," Riley began once they were back at their house, Scott was asleep in his bed, and they were sitting on their couch. "I- I'm sorry."
"About what?" Haley asked, putting down the magazine she was reading.
"I don't know. I've just had a bad attitude lately," Riley said. "I was just kind of upset, since I wasn't his dad dad. But I've decided to get over that. Just because I'm not his actual father doesn't mean I can't be his dad."
Haley smiled as she shifted to sit closer to Riley as she leaned her head on his chest and he put his arm around her. "I'm glad to hear that. You seemed so unhappy I was afraid you were going to leave," she said, turning her face up to his.
"I'm glad to say that," he said, smiling as he leaned in to kiss her softly. "And no matter what, there's nothing either of you can do to get rid of me now. You're stuck with me for the rest of your life."
"That's fine with me," she said, smiling. "I'll take whatever time I can get."
Riley smiled and kissed her again before he said, "Is forever enough?"
