A/N: WAH!!! Last chapter! By request, I'm going to be doing this chapter in time periods, so if you don't like it, I'm sorry and just suck it up:)
Also, I want to thank you reviewers, who are sooooo awesome!!!! You guys float my boat... whatever that means...Anyhoo, The years are by Hikaru's age. Enjoy!
And the years go By
"Your first birthday Ru!" I clapped my hands.
Too bad, he didn't have a clue on what was happening around him.
Hikaru, or we started calling him, Ru, was the most beautiful baby boy I've seen... Aside from Damien, who has become quite talkative. Can't say I blame him though, look at his Pops!
Oh yeah, Tifa's prego again!
What a shocker.
"Rini don't do that to Damien, sweetheart!" Tifa said grabbing her daughter before she tackled Damien again, and handing her to Cloud.
"Alright everyone, shut up! Ru is gonna blow out his candle!"
He had the most gorgeous, and unique, eyes I had ever seen.
One eye was red, the other was violet.
I mean, I know my eyes are a violet color, but his is like dark violet. Just beautiful!
I turned to Vincent after the candle was blown and everyone was eating, and wrapped my arms around his waist and looked at my ring while doing so.
Rini was walking down the isle as flower girl, Denzel was the ring bearer, Cloud, Barret, Reeve and Nanaki were the Best mans, Tifa was the maid of honor while Shera and Marlene were the Bridesmaids and Cid was the guy to give Yuffie away.
There were white and red roses everywhere, and the only thing Vincent looked at was his wife-to-be.
Next, the vows .
"I had been locked in my past for many years, concealing myself from everything and everyone. Somehow... when you all found me, you managed to find your way inside my heart as well. You've given me everything any man could ever ask for... and a wonderful child. I love you."
Yuffie smiled widely at how awesomely romantic, and mushy, his vows were.
"Vincent; I want to say, Thank you. Because you've been there for me when no one else has.. Except for Teef, but anyhoo, you've been my best friend, my everything, and I know I couldn't have been this happy in life if it weren't for you. I love you."
"Vincent! You have to do this!" I yelled.
Dumb ass was supposed to help me take care of the kids tonight. I was taking care of Ru, Rini, the Strife's youngest daughter Miki who was now 4, Damien, and Marlene and Denzel. Although, Mar and Denny didn't really need to be watched over since they were 16 and 18.
"Yuffie, I will come back as soon as possible, alright?"
"Fine. But you better not be gone all night Valentine!"
Where was everyone going, you ask?
They were all doing something tonight. What are the odds huh? Everyone had plans on one certain night!
"Oh thank gawd! They're asleep!"
Marlene laughed quietly. "They are such a handful."
"Tell me about it. Your mom better be paying me some big gil, that's all I gotta say."
"Denzel what did you do!?" Yuffie yelled, seeing the 4 children running around screaming and laughing.
Her and Marlene had gone to the store to pick up some food and had asked Denzel to watch them while they were gone.
"Uh, you see... I just thought that if I gave them some sugar they would calm down."
"Denzel, you moron!" Marlene yelled, "Sugar makes them hyper, not calm!"
Denzel scratched the back of his head. "Heh, my bad."
"Man, your boyfriend is dense!" I poured myself a drink.
Ru came walking out with his blanket that he named "Wolly" that he carried everywhere.
I picked him up.
"What's up hon?"
I saw Denzel come and sit next to Marlene.
"I'm berry thirsty."
"Let's fix that then, Denny get me a glass of water pleeeease!"
He frowned at the nickname that I still call him but got the glass anyway.
"Thanks. Drink up lil man, you need to go back to sleep."
"Mom, come on! We're gonna miss it!"
"I'm comin', I'm comin'! Sheesh!"
I ran to the car dragging Ru with me. Running in heels sucks! I was going to be late for the Wedding! Shit! Shit! Shit!
Yup, I said wedding.
Our little Mar and Denzel were getting hitched today. And we were late!!!!
I ran in the church just in time! Vincent was there, and took Ru while I went to be one of the bridesmaids.
"Do you Denzel Strife take Marlene Wallace to be your wife?"
"And do you Marlene Wallace, take Denzel Strife to be your husband?"
"I do, forever."
"I now pronounce you husband and wife, you may kiss the bride."
They smiled at each other and kissed.
I was crying, duh, along with Tifa and Barret. That big ol' teddy bear!
Oh shit! Poor Rini!
I was standing in the bar with Tifa, Damien and Rini.
"I- I- I'm pregnant!" The 16 year old wailed.
Now we were figuring out a way to tell Cloud.
Right on cue Spiky came in.
He stopped when he saw all of us. A scared Damien, a distressed Tifa and a crying Rini.
"What happened?" He asked. Rini cried some more.
"Now honey, I want you to give me your sword." Tifa said walking over to him.
He stepped back and narrowed his eyes.
Damn! Damien looked like he was gonna pass out!
I rubbed his arm a gave him a smile, which he thanked.
"Give me the sword Cloud."
He gave it to Teef reluctantly.
"Daddy..." Rini said getting up. She looked at Tifa and received a nod.
Holy Shiva! I have never seen Cloud glare at anyone like that since Sephiroth.
"What?" His teeth were grit.
I grabbed Damien's arm. "On the count of three, you run out of here."
His eyes widened.
"I said I'm pregnant."
Cloud chased him out the door leaving us in the quiet bar.
Miki came out. "Damn sis, wouldn't that suck if Dad killed Damien and then your baby would be fatherless?"
"Miki!" Tifa scolded.
Instead of having brown hair and blue eyes like Rini, Miki had wine colored eyes and golden blonde hair. Rini looked a bit more like Teef and Miki looked a bit more like Spiky.
I loved Miki a lot too. She came over everyday to the Mansion to hang with Ru; since both of them had been the "runts", they had become good friends.
"Oh my god! I can't believe this is happening." Rini moaned.
"Aw, don't worry Ri, we're all here for you." I said. The others nodded.
"How was work?" Vince asked.
I was sitting in the living room with him, while Ru was on the floor doing his homework.
"It was good. The bar closed early though since Cloud and Tifa found out Rini's pregnant." I said.
"What!!!?" Ru yelled. Vinnie looked equally surprised.
"Dang! She's only 16! She did it with Damien didn't she?"
Ru shook his head. "I knew they kicked Miki and I out of their room to get kinky!"
"Hikaru!"Vince and I scolded.
"You remind me much too much of your Mother." Vincent said.
"Hey!" I laughed punching his arm.
"Hey Mom, when are grandpa and grandma coming?" Ru asked.
"Well, seeing the situation their son's in, I'd say... a few hours."
"Aw, my baby's growing up!" I cried.
Ru got out of my hug blushing. "Mom, I'm not a baby anymore."
"I know, I know! But you're my only child, am I not allowed to give you extra affection?" I pouted.
"Fine, just stop fixing my hair with your spit."
"Deal! Now let's go tell your father!"
"Okay Vince, if Cloud does anything crazy, don't pull Cerberus out on him!"
"Come on Ru."
"Don't be a wimp! At least you didn't impregnate her." I dragged my son and husband into the bar.
Rini was there with her 4 year old son Benji.
"Hi guys!" She greeted.
"Hi guys!" Benji mimicked.
"Hey. Ri, is your Mom and Dad here?" I asked.
"No, but Marlene is. She's in the bathroom though."
"When is everyone arriving?" Vince asked.
Rini looked at the clock. "Uhm, they should all be here any minute."
Marlene staggered into the room. Her stomach had gotten huge.
"Hey guys!" She smiled then sat down. "Good luck tonight Ru."
He smiled nervously. "Thanks, I'm pretty nervous."
Marlene waved it off as we all went to sit down. "Oh, don't be! This is your big night!" She huffed suddenly. "Where is Denzel? He's supposed to be here with some Ice cream."
I grinned and sat on Vincent's lap.
"How's she doing?" I asked, rubbing her stomach.
She smiled. "Actually, she is a they."
I blinked in surprise. "Twins!?"
Nod. "Boy and a girl."
"Aw, Mar, that's great!"
"Congratulations Marlene." Vincent said.
"Thank you." She replied sitting Benji next to her.
After the gang was all here I turned to Vincent.
"I love you." I told him.
He kissed my forehead, then my eyelids, then my lips.
"I love you also."
I heard Ru clear his throat. It was still loud. He cleared his throat again, and I was gonna yell to the room to shut up, but Miki beat it to me.
"HEY EVERYBODY! QUIET DOWN!"
I don't know where Miki gets her fiesty personality from.
"Uh, thank you everyone for coming. I also want to thank my Grandparents." He gestured to Cid and Shera, who smiled in return.
"And I want to thank my parents, and all of you for being my family."
Aww, I was so proud of him!
He turned to Miki and got down on one knee.
There were a number of gasps in the Bar.
"Oh my..." Miki started.
"Miki Strife. You have been my best friend since we were kids; And you always stood up for me when I was bullied at school..." He paused and continued. "We see each other everyday, and I just couldn't bear it if I went a day without seeing your face."
She started crying and I saw Cloud get less protective with each word Ru spoke.
"I- I know we barely admitted our feelings to each other a year ago, but I don't want the rest of my life without you in it..." He grabbed a box out of his pocket.
"W- will you be my wife?" He asked.
She hiccuped. "Well, DUH!"
He smiled relieved and picked her up and kissed her.
Congratulations were thrown around left and right.
I looked at the room around me, while leaning on Vincent. There was a never ending flow of love.
Tifa and Cloud, Barret and Elmyra, Marlene and Denzel, Rini and Damien, Shera and Cid, Ru and Miki, Tseng and Elena. Everyone was family, even the people who weren't settled down with another person yet. Reeve, Nanaki, Reno, Rude, Shelke. The children, Benji, Elena's daughter Sophie, Marlene's unborn children.
We were all a huge family, stuffed with undying love for each other.
I turned to Vincent. "His proposal was almost as good as yours."
His lips twitched.
"I believe it would be, since I taught him how to do it."
I laughed out loud.
Figures our son would need lessons on women.
"Did I ever tell you how much I love you Vinnie?" I asked leaning my chin on his chest.
"Everyday... Have I ever told you how much I love you?" He asked.
"Hmmm, maybe you should refresh my memory."
"I love you Yuffie Valentine."
"I love you too Vincent."
Even though I've almost died countless of times with AVALANCHE, I just totally love my life!
