I know. I know. It's been a long time since I said I was going to update. I went to my parents for Christmas and well they don't have Internet. Then I couldn't get on my roommates' computer cause he was on it. Then there was work. Argh, but here is the last chapter of my fic.

Rose woke up a little disoriented and groggy. She started to shift her legs but stopped as she felt a sharp pain climb up her thighs. 'Ooowwww.' thought Rose. She started to glance around the room only to stop and stare at two little bassinets a few feet from her bed. Roses eyes grew in amazement. 'Twins? Twins!!!! Oh god. How are we going to do this?' With that thought repeating in her mind, she didn't realize that she had started to cry.
At that moment the Doctor walked through the door of the Infirmary. He heard sniffing coming from a small room that the Tardis added after the birth of the twins. He went over and entered the room and saw that Rose was awake, but crying.
"Rose?" asked the Doctor as he moved across the room and sat next to Rose.
"Doctor." cried Rose. " How are we suppose to manage?"
"Oh, Rose." The Doctor pulled Rose into a hug and began to rub her back when one of the twins began to cry. The Doctor began to laugh. " They sure do know when to ruin the mood."
The Doctor let go of Rose and walked over to one of the bassinets. Very gently he picked up the baby that was making all the noise.
"I think someone wants his mommy." said the Doctor as he handed little Kyle to Rose. As Rose took Kyle from the Doctor, Alan began to cry. "Well, well, well. Seems as if Alan is jealous of his brother getting your attention."
"Just like their father." Rose replied sticking her tongue out as she smiled at the Doctor.
The Doctor walked over and picked up Alan. He looked down at his son and noticed the boy had his mothers nose and ears.
"Yeah. What?" The Doctor looked over at the door to see Jack standing there with little Gillian in his arms.
"I wanna sthee." whispered Gillian as she looked at Rose then the Doctor.
The Doctor sat on the bed next to Rose, still holding Alan. "Well why don't you two join us."
Jack walked over to the bed and looked at the twins and their parents. Little Gillian however had something different in mind. She wiggled in Jacks' arms and bent towards the bed.
"Hey, okay. Okay. Jeez. You know you just made Uncle Jack sad." Jack had put Gillian onto the bed, and looked over at Rose.
"Someone isn't pleased with you, Jack." Rose said softly, trying not to disturb a sleeping Kyle.
"What?" Jack looked over at Gillian only to see her looking at him with a raised eyebrow and a look of attitude.
Rose and the Doctor laughed at the two of them. Sometimes they both wondered if there was something Gwen wasn't telling anybody about who Gillian's real father is. Though they both were there when Gwen and Rhys found out that they were having a baby.
Gwen soon came in and took little Gillian back to the Hub control room. Ianto stopped by as well, mostly to drag Jack away since Christmas dinner was now finished ans ready to eat.
"You think you might be up to coming, Rose?" asked Jack.
"Sure. I don't see why not. Doctor?" Rose looked at the Doctor to see if would confirm that she was fit enough to sit through supper.
"Well, I don't see why not. Sure Jack we'll be there."
"See you in 30 minutes then." with that said Jack left the Infirmary and the Tardis.
"Well boys. I think it's time to let your mother get herself ready for supper."
The Doctor placed Alan in his bassinet and was turning around to head back to the bed when he notices that Rose was right behind him with Kyle. The Doctor watched as Rose placed the child into his own bassinet. 'Rose is good with babies.' Thought the Doctor. Rose kissed each baby on the cheek before looking at the Doctor and holding out her hand. He took her hand as she led him out of the Infirmary and to the their room so they could get dressed for dinner.
A week later..... New Year's Eve 11:45pm
"Rose? Rose where are you?" shouted the Doctor as he jogged from room to room in the Tardis.
They were supposed to be at the Hub for a New Years party with Jack and his team. ' Figures. She yells at me for making us late for events. Well this time it's her fault.' thought the Doctor. As he was brooding over that matter, he barely noticed that someone had come into the control room. Glancing up he sees Rose standing there.'Oh Rassilion!'
Rose stood there, wearing a red cocktail dress that hugged her curves in all the right places. She started to chuckle as she watched the Doctor stare at her. 'He is speechless!' she thought.
"Doctor? Are you alright?"
"Hhhmm? Oh yes!! Well... I..." the Doctor coughed to clear his throat. "You ready to go? Jack is not going to be happy if we are late."
"Yes, I'm ready." She reached down to take one of the two car seats that were on the floor. Their occupants fast asleep.
The Doctor picked up the other car seat and followed Rose out the Tardis door and into the Hub. As they walked into the Hub main control room the Torchwood team came to greet them. Sarah Jane was there as well and took the car seat from the Doctor. Her and Rose began to coo over the twins and all the Doctor could do was shake his head ans smile. 'Those boys are going to be spoiled.' thought the Doctor.
"So Doc. Have you asked her yet?"
"Not yet Jack. I was planning to ask on Christmas day but I guess the twins beat me to it."
"Well, why don't you as her tonight? I'm sure Sarah Jane and Gwen can handle the twins while you ask Rose."
"I don't know. Rose hasn't left the twins alone since the day they were born."
"Seems to me Doc that she has separation anxiety." chuckled Jack as he glanced over at Rose. "Why don't you take her to the top of the tower and ask her there? Say around midnight? Or a little after midnight?"
The Doctor raised his eyebrows, and thought about what Jack had said.
At 11:55pm the Doctor walked over to Rose and asked her to come with him. When she began to protest Jack came over and told her that he and Gwen would watch the twins. She knew that she was out numbered and agreed to go with the Doctor.
Jack watched them leave and smiled. He looked over at Sarah Jane and smiled.
"Heads up everyone! 2 minutes till..." said Jack.
The Doctor and Rose were making their way up to the top of the tower. Rose commenting on the views while the Doctor was trying to think of a way to ask her his question without sounding like a complete fool.
His brain working more than a mile a minute on how to ask this of her. ' I could...... No! That is too.....Should I....... Oh Rassilion I sound like Jack.' This was running through his brain.
Rose had noticed that the Doctor was quiet. Too quiet. 'What is he thinking?' she wondered. Looking at his face he had one of those lost in thought looks.
"Doctor? Are you alright?"
"Hhhmmm... Oh yeah. Never been better. Why do you ask?"
"You just... You look as though you are miles away."
"Sorry? Just been going over the last couple of weeks."
"Yeah. Everything has changed now hasn't it?" She smiled at him.
This was why he wanted to ask her. That face and her attitude towards things. That's what he loved about her.
They had finally made it to the top with 2 minutes to spare before midnight hit.
"Wow." said Rose as she looked out at the view.
"Yeah." replied the Doctor. He finally figured out how to ask her.
They watched and waited for the fireworks to start.
"10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, Happy New Year!!!!!" screamed the crowd below.
The fireworks had started and Rose cuddled up against the Doctor. He placed an arm around her shoulders. He would wait till after the fireworks. They continued to watch till the fireworks ended. The people below were still partying though. 'It is now or never.' thought the Doctor.
"Rose, I have something to ask you?"
"Yeah, like what?" she asked playfully.
"Rose. Would you do me the honor of becoming my life mate?" asked the Doctor nervously. He held out the ring he had purchased a few days before Christmas.
Rose stared at the Doctor, never letting her eyes leave his face.
"Doctor. I don't need a ring. All I need is you and the twins. And yes. I will be happy to become your life mate."
The Doctor smiled at Rose and kissed her.
"Happy New Year, Rose"
"Happy New Year Doctor."
