A/N: Okay, this isn't going to be very long. But, it is good. At least, I think it is…


Previous Chapter:

Kyo's thought's were interrupted by Kazuma coming into the kitchen; he handed him the phone.

"It's for you."

"Hey, Kyo?" It was Yuki.

"Whadda ya want, ya damn Rat?"

"Miss Honda's just gone into labor, Stupid Cat."

Kyo went white; Kazuma sighed and took the phone from him.

"I'm guessing that Tohru is on her way to the hospital, am I right?" he asked.

"Yes, she's with Hatori right now. How did you know?"

"Kyo looks ready to faint," Kazuma said simply. "We'll meet you there."


Chapter Thirty-one: Epilogue

Kyo grinned over at Tohru, nervous. It had been over a year and a half since Kyoko, named for Tohru's mother, had been born, their beautify little girl with Tohru's big blue eyes and Kyo's orange hair.

Not thirty seconds after Kyo had surprised Tohru with their apartment, he had surprised everyone by quietly slipping a ring onto Tohru's third finger on her left hand. Tohru had looked down, surprised, and Kyo had grinned sheepishly. They were married five months later.

Now they were just waiting. Just one more minute and they would know. Thirty seconds. Twenty. Ten. Five…four…three…two…one…

Tohru picked up the plastic wand. Her face broke into a wide smile.


"YES!" Kyo jumped up, pumping his fist in the air, before picking Tohru up and spinning her around. "Haha! First try! I am the greatest!"

Tohru laughed. They had decided just last month to start trying for another baby. They had only had the chance to try once, but it had obviously been enough.

"Kyo, you're going to wake up Kyoko!" she laughed.

Too late. Kyoko's cries came in through the baby moniter.

Kyo just laughed. "I'll get her." He placed a hand on Tohru's abdomen, right over the baby now growing there. Kissing her deeply, he whispered, "I love you."

"I love you too," Tohru murmured, leaning in for another kiss. Kyo broke it first, at the sound of Kyoko's insistant cries of "Dada!!"

"Coming, baby!" Kyo called, running towards the nursery. Tohru giggled. Kyo doted on Kyoko. She was already more than half spoiled.

Tohru smiled. There was no longer a Curse of the Zodiac, Shigure had just proposed to Akito, Ayame and Mine's wedding was in just a few days, Hatori had a girlfriend, Yuki was dating Machi from the student council when they had been in high school and was at the top of his classes at the University. And now she was pregnant again!

And maybe this time she and Kyo would have a boy…


That's it! Sorry to end it like this…But all things have to end. Beauty is fleeting, lasting only a moment before leaving, impacting the lives of many before it goes. At least, that's what Dei-kun says (I'm writing a Naruto Shippuuden songfic for Deidara-kun, check it out when I finally get it put up!) Review!

Bye, and thanks for reading!!
