Kaylee woke up early the next morning, feeling a little better but still feeling like hell. She looked to her left, and smirked when she noticed Jeff still sleeping on the hospital recliner. Jeff then started stirring, and sat up when he noticed Kaylee awake.
"You know, those recliners aren't as comfortable as they look," he said as he rubbed his eyes.
"I'm glad you stayed."
"I wouldn't have been anywhere else," he said as he stood up and stretched. "I'm going to tell the doctor your up and make a quick phone call," he said as he kissed her quickly. "I love you."
"I love you too Jeff."
Within an hour, Jeff was able to bring Kaylee home. The drive home was relatively quiet, but it wasn't an uncomfortable quiet. When they turned into the driveway, Kaylee noticed immediately the balloons strung on the front porch. "Jeff, what's all this?" she asked.
"It's just a little welcome home gesture," he said as they walked inside. When they walked through the door, Kaylee was surprised at the sight before her. There was a rose petal trail leading up the stair case and candles lit in the living room. "Jeff, what is all this?" she asked.
He took her hand in his and gently kissed the top of it. "Follow the trail. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised."
Kaylee did as she was asked, and followed the rose petal trail. The trail led to their bedroom and Kaylee then found a small box in the middle of their bed. Jeff then stepped ahead of her, grabbed the box and then took Kaylee's hands into his. Both were starting to have tears in their eyes.
"Baby, I love you," Jeff began. "We have been through alot over the last several months and know now more than ever that you are the person I want to be with. I love your smile and how strong you are. When I'm on the road, I miss you like crazy and love holding you each night. I guess what I'm trying to say is," he said as he got down on one knee, "Will you marry me?"
Tears were now flowing down Kaylee's cheeks as she listened to Jeff's speech. This was the guy who helped her overcome her drug problem, and get her life back on track. The answer to Jeff's question was easy. "Yes Jeff, I will," she said as Jeff stood up and twirled Kaylee around in the room. He then took the ring out of the box and placed it on Kaylee's tiny finger.
"You have just made me the happiest guy in the world," Jeff said as he cradled her face in his hands.
6 Months Later
It was a beautiful fall day, and as Kaylee looked outside, she couldn't help but smile. Today was her and Jeff's wedding day, and the past 6 months have been going great. Kaylee was totally off the drugs and even attended the occasional counseling sessions with the support of Jeff. The nightmares had stopped, and the last she heard, Rick was still rotting in jail.
Jeff and Kaylee wanted a small and simple wedding, and thought the backyard was perfect. Kaylee grinned as she watched Matt and Gil put the finishing touches on the archway that would later be decorated beautifully with the orange roses. She then noticed Jeff start setting up the chairs and grinned even bigger when he noticed her at the window and blew her a kiss. She did the same as she heard a knock on the door. "Come in," she called.
Callie, her friend that had been by her side through it all, walked in and looked beautiful in her chocolate colored bridesmaid dress. "Come and sit down, its time to do your make up."
Within 2 hours, Kaylee was being zipped into her dress. She loved how simple her strapless gown was, but also loved the little flare it gave off by the chocolate colored sash around her waist. "Callie, thank you again for being my Maid of Honor," she said as she hugged her friend. "I honestly never thought this day would ever come. I thought I would be stuck with Rick for the rest of my life."
Callie grinned as she hugged her friend. "I'm glad he isn't apart of your life anymore. The important thing is is that in a matter of minutes you are going to become Mrs. Jeff Hardy, and that you have the love of a true man."
"I couldn't agree with you more."
About 15 minutes later, Kaylee was standing near the sliding glass door as she watched Callie walk down the aisle to the music from the piano. Within minutes, the trumpets started, signaling Kaylee it was time for her walk down the aisle. As Jeff watched Kaylee walk down the aisle on the arm of his dad, his breath was literally taken away. She had never looked so beautiful than she did at that very moment.
Kaylee soon reached the end of the aisle, and linked arms with Jeff as they stood in front of the priest. After reciting a prayer and collecting the rings from Callie and Matt, the priest asked Jeff and Kaylee to face each other and join hands. "Jeff, do you take Kaylee to be your lawfully wedded wife?" the priest asked.
"I do," Jeff replied with the biggest grin on his face. He then took Kaylee's ring and placed it on her finger.
"Kaylee, do you take Jeff to be your lawfully wedded husband?"
Kaylee's tears started rolling down her cheeks as she spoke. "I do," she replied as she took Jeff's ring and placed it on his finger.
"By the power invested in me and by the state of North Carolina, I pronounce you husband and wife. Jeff, you may kiss your bride."
Jeff then cupped Kaylee's face in his hands and gently placed a soft kiss upon her lips, and continued kissing as they both could hear cheers and applause from their guests.
Several hours later, after all the speeches and the last of the champange had been drunk, Jeff and Kaylee were in front of their honeymoon suite. Jeff opened the door, and then turned and smiled with every evil intention on his mind to Kaylee. "What?" she asked.
Saying nothing, Jeff swooped Kaylee off her feet and brought her in the room, both of them laughing. "Did the day turn out perfect for you?" he asked when he finally laid her down on the bed and carefully climbing on top of her.
"I don't think the day could have been more perfect. Baby, can I sound corny for a second?"
"After everything that we have been through, I feel so lucky to call you my husband. You are truly my guardian angel," Kaylee said with a smile.
