2000 and something
"Emmett Forrest, please make me the happiest woman I know," Elle Woods said.
"Oh. My. God," Emmett said. Elle slipped the ring on his finger.
He pulled her into his arms and kissed her. She actually felt the same way he did.
Everyone was surprised. Vivian was happy that her friends were in love. If there ever was a perfect couple, this one qualifies.
Emmett and Elle were moving into the penthouse apartment they had bought together. Paulette, Kyle, their kids, and Enid were helping. Paulette's youngest, Michelle, was trying to help but she was only three. James, her oldest, was helping Emmett and Kyle bring boxes. Kalan, her middle child, had a checklist in his hand to see if everything was moved in. Elle, Enid and Paulette were moving the stuff that was in the boxes onto the tables, in the dressers, in the closet, on the dressers and in the living room. Finally everything was all in their places. Vivian couldn't be there to help because she was in the Peace Corp. Warner was modelling in Italy. But they would be there for the wedding. Everyone started to get hungry so Elle called for pizza. The pizza came ten minutes later. Bruiser was his usual self. As everyone started eating, the phone rang.
"Hello," Emmett said after he picked up the phone.
"Hey Emmett," the person on the other end said. "It's me, Vivian."
"Hey Vivian," Emmett said. As soon as Elle heard Vivian's name, she stood up.
During their three years at Havard, Elle and Vivian became best friends. Since Vivian was in the Peace Corp, Elle wrote to her everyday. Elle even wrote the phone number in one of the letters she wrote to Vivian.
"How's the Peace Corp?" asked Emmett.
"It's great," Vivian said. "Is Elle around?"
"She's standing by me," Emmett said." I give her the phone."
"Hey Vivian," Elle said after Emmett handed her the phone. "How are you?"
"Good," said Vivian. "Are you on a cordless phone by any chance?"
"Yeah," Elle said. "Why?"
"Hang it up and come to the door," said Vivian.
Elle hung up the phone and walked to the door. She opened it up and in the hallway, there stood Vivian.
"Oh my god," Elle said as she hugged Vivian. "You're here."
"Yup," said Vivian.
"Come in," Elle told her.
Vivian stepped into the apartment. Elle led her to the kitchen. When Emmett, Kyle, Paulette and Enid saw Vivian, they came and hugged her.
"I thought you were still in Africa with the Peace Corp," Emmett said. " How long have you been home?"
"Well, I did a year there," said Vivian. "And I came home a week ago. I wanted to be a lawyer."
"Well, we are glad you're home," Elle said, hugging Vivian again.
"Me too," said Vivian. " I feel so much better home."
Elle got a plate for Vivian. After the pizza was done, everyone put their plates in the dishwasher and went into the living room. As Elle sat down by Emmett, the doorbell rang. Elle got up and answered it. It was Warner.
"Warner," Elle said. "How are you?"
"Fine," said Warner. "And you?"
"Good," said Elle. "Come in."
Warner walked in the door. He hung up his coat and followed Elle into the living room.
"Guess who's here," Elle said.
"Who?" Everyone asked.
Warner stepped into the living room.
"Warner, man" Emmett said. "When did you get back?"
"Yesterday," Warner said, shaking Emmett's hand.
Everyone started talking at once. By the time everyone left, it was midnight.
"I'm so tired," Elle said.
"Well, let's go to bed," Emmett said. " You and I have a busy day tomorrow."
