A/N: Hello readers, Qwertymann back here again, with a continuation story of Life Changing Experiences. That's right, if you skipped the summary for some reason, this is a sequel to that story. I just had to continue it, I like this story that much. You have to read Life Changing Experiences before this makes any sense. So... enjoy!
"Raaaaaechelllll!" Unng… is that Gar… what time is… 5:40 AM?! I'm going to hurt him…. Before I can get up or say something, his lips are placed upon mine briefly, and then gone. "Time to get up."
"Gar… do we HAVE to?" I groan and cover my eyes.
"Yes! It's our first day of our last year in college! You know what that means?" I roll my eyes.
"Of course, we graduate… but it's early still. Can't we sleep for another hour?"
"Heck no, baby! I've been up since 5:00!"
"Don't call me baby," I threaten.
"Sorry, honey." I sigh.
"Will you ever stop with those pet names?"
"In your dreams, sweetums. Now get up and take a shower." I shake my head.
"You can't boss me around, Gar."
"You know I'm joking… sugar." That's it. I get up and push him against the wall, holding his arms… his strong, muscular arms. I glare at him.
"What did I tell you about the pet names?" He smirked and thought about it for a moment.
"You'd break a bone in my body for each time I called you one?"
"Rae, you can't scare me." I opened my mouth, but he kissed me again, longer this time. He broke away and moved to the telephone.
"What am I going to do then, Gar?"
"Hmm. Your kisses rule. More of those." I pushed his arm as he picked up the telephone and he stuck his tongue out at me.
"Uhh… who are you calling?"
"Victor! Duh, we're all going together. We have first class together, Rae!"
"Yeah, I didn't forget about that one. Put the kettle on for me while I have a shower, will you?"
"No problem, honey cakes!" I shook my head, but smiled as I turned away to prepare for my shower.
It's funny, thinking that Gar and I got together four years ago. Four whole years, and we're still together. I thank whatever divine entity exists for that. Gar is the greatest thing that has ever happened in my life. I don't know where I would be now without him… probably doing crack in some abandoned warehouse with Tara and Kitty.
Anyway, that's all in the past. It's hard to believe that we're finally at our last year of college. It was a long time coming, and a sure as hell hard battle to get to here. But we've all made it together, and we're all graduating this year. If, however, one falls, all others would fall as well. We go together, or we don't go at all. There's no other option to it.
It's a little silly, but I wouldn't have it any other way. They are like family to me. I can't believe how much one person can change you, but four can completely turn your life around. Granted, Gar could do that alone, but it's good to have all my friends with me as we venture into the final stepping-stone of our school life.
And as soon as grad is finished, I hope Gar will… propose. I already love him with all my heart, and he's proven to be very, VERY good with kids. He pulled off a part-time babysitting job for two years, and everyone was all "oh Gar! Come babysit for me!" It was good, but I did have to spend less time with my Garfield. I got a job myself, that way I wouldn't be totally bored on nights alone. I was a freelance journalist. It didn't work out too well for me; I'd rather write a real story. But still, it was money and it helped pay off college funds.
Over the years, Richard and Kori had a kid. I knew those two wouldn't be able to keep their hands off of each other. God knows how much babysitting Gar did for those two. Karen is their daughter's name, and she's such a precious little child. She's so adorable. Those two make great parents. But I especially love the times when Gar and I take care of her together. I almost feel like a real mother during those times. A child… it's my deepest desire, my highest goal, my strongest dream. And Karen has helped me with experiencing my dream to an extent. But I still want my own child.
Karen is recently born, only five months old right now. Kori was an extremely hard worker after the pregnancy. Richard had to take over a lot on the baby work since Kori had to catch up on all of her work. She barely passed, but she did manage. We are all very proud of her for that. Sometimes I don't get how that woman can do so much, but she does.
"Rachel! What's taking you so long?"
"I'm done now, Gar." He walked in the bathroom right as I stepped out, still naked and uncovered by any towel. I blushed and hid my…
"Wow Rachel. I've only seen you naked a few times but… whoa. You. Are. SMOKING."
"You have three seconds to get out…"
"You know, I could get used to this…"
"Rachel, my naked girlfriend!"
"But I suppose it's a bit rude of me to walk in on you…"
"Three!" I grabbed a towel and wrapped it around my body and chased Gar out of the bathroom and onto the bed. I pinned him down, now on top of him.
"You just can't stay away from me for too long, can you? Rae, your naked 'you know what'… is on my…"
"Gar, be quiet. You can't walk into the bathroom when I'm showering. That's the third time it's happened." I glared at him. "You know I am very self-conscious."
"You see me naked all the time, Rae." I bit my bottom lip. That was true enough. Although we haven't had sex yet… we see each other naked surprisingly a lot.
"Fine, fair enough. But no more barging in on me when I'm in the shower."
"Okay, okay." I took off my towel and got dressed in front of Gar, whose eyes didn't wander TOO much…
"Wow, that's the first time you got willingly naked in front of me… I'm shocked." I shrugged.
"You do it all the time." I turned around and noticed there was a cup of steaming tea on the table. I sat down and sipped it and smiled. Just the way I like it. He never forgets.
I'm hoping this year will be successful for all of us.
