Five years later.
It has been five years since I was in Camp Green Lake. The camp was now a camp for girl scouts. Who knew? I was married and had twins. Yes, I did say twins. They are four, which means when I got home I found out I was pregnant. The father being Alan or what I use to call him Squid.
Carly and Zigzag were engaged and living down the street from us. The second I told Alan I was pregnant, he went into father mode. Got a really good job and found us a rental house. When I was three months along, we got married. Everyone from D-tent was there. You're probably wondering about my buddy Wayne, well he was married and his wife was five months pregnant.
Today we were going to Stanley's house for a pool party. I sighed and went to the kitchen to get breakfast going. Three, two, one… "Mommy!" The twins were up. Ella Grace came running in the kitchen with tears in her eyes. Ella Grace looked just like her father; well she had my hazel eyes. She acted just like Alan to.
"What's wrong?" I asked putting a plate in front of her. "Ethan is being mean again"
"Ella, he's a boy. That's how they work" I said laughing. "Did daddy act like that?" I laughed and sat down next to her. "Your father got on my nerves a lot. So yes he was just like Ethan"
"She's lying" Ethan said walking in. It surprises me everyday how they didn't act like four years old. Well in less than a month they will be five. My babies are growing up. Ethan was loud and made sure he always got what he wants. Just like I was. He looked just like me too, but had his fathers chocolate brown eyes. Ethan was two minutes older than Ella Grace.
"Stop it. Eat up we'll be leaving soon." Alan said walking in. I smiled, he was a great father. "Morning Princess" Alan mumbled kissing me on the cheek. I laughed and gave him a quick kiss.
"Will Aunt Carly and Uncle Ricky be there?" Ethan asked eating his eggs. Alan nodded and drank some coffee. "Allie, when will they be getting married again?"
"In late November." I said smiling knowing they got the idea from us. We were married in the middle of November. I have always loved how the leaves looked. I looked down at my watch "We better get going" I said getting up.
"Now, remember be on your best behavior" Alan said to Ethan, who was holding his hand. "Dad, I'm always am" Ethan said running towards the pool. "You always say that" Alan said chuckling. Ella Grace ran up to Carly and almost knocked her over. "Aunt Carly!"
"Ella! Why aren't you in the pool with your brother?" Carly asked picking up the girl. "They got in a fight this morning" I said giving Carly a side hug. "Again?" Ella nodded and jumped down from Carly. "How do you do it?" Carly asked laughing. "It's hard, but I love those kids so it's not too bad." I said sitting down.
"I didn't mean the fighting. I meant about how Ella acts just like Alan" Carly said pointing to Alan, who was talking to Rex and Ricky. "Oh that. Sometimes I want to pull my hair out." I said laughing. "When they are together, they are always getting into trouble." I said looking at Alan holding Ella Grace.
Carly laughed and nodded. "Ethan is just like you. Ricky told me, he knows how to play with Alan's head. You know like you did when you wanted something." I smiled and looked at Ethan, who was in the pool with Hector.
That's when I noticed Wayne wasn't here. "Where's Wayne?" I asked still looking for him. "Oh yeah. He went to Kyla's parent's house." Carly said looking at Ricky. I rolled my eyes.
"Do you want him to come over here?" I asked already knowing the answer. She nodded and looked at me. This girl was so in love with him. They need to hurry up and get married. They were meant to be. "Alan! Ricky!" I yelled waving them over. Alan put down Ella and walked over to me.
Ricky kissed Carly and sat down. He put his arm around her waist and she sighed. Alan sat next to me and held my hand. "So, did Ethan talk Hector into going in the pool?" I asked. "Most likely. You've trained him well" Ricky said laughing.
"He was born like that. Allie didn't even have to train him" Alan said kissing my temple. "Ella Grace is like the spitting image of you" Carly said to Alan. Alan smirked and looked at Ella, who was being held by Rex in the pool. "I have to admit the girls have me wrap around their fingers." Alan said pulling me close to him.
"You two were made for each other" Carly said sighing. I rolled my eyes and slapped Carly on the arm. "Stop being all… Well that. It's really wrong" I said. "How is it wrong?" Ricky asked smirking. I knew he knew where this was going.
"She means you two are the same way" Alan said. I smiled when I saw Carly's face lit up with happiness. Carly has been talking non stop about how she couldn't wait to spend the rest of her life with Ricky. Ricky was the same way or that's what Alan kept telling me. When Carly and Ricky met for the first time, it was the funniest thing in the world. They were so shy and didn't know what to say to each other. I have never seen anything like it before. Both of them weren't acting like themselves. They dated for two years and then moved in together. Soon they were engaged.
I so happy when I saw my two best friends were so happy. I looked up at Ricky and smiled. "How's work going?" I asked. Ricky was working on becoming a lawyer. I wasn't surprise when he told me. He was good at arguing and winning. He would be a perfect.
"It's going great. My boss said I might be able to take cases soon" I smiled. "That's wonderful" Carly wasn't working, Ricky wouldn't let her. Of course Carly wasn't minding that at all. "What about you Alan?" Carly asked smiling.
Alan was working his dream job. He was a Marine Biologist. "Amazing. I mean you guys didn't call me Squid for nothing" He said laughing. "What about you, Allie?" I smiled. I was also working my dream job. I was a veterinarian and I also trained horses. "Doing good"
Alan sat in the living room with both kids sound asleep next to him. Ella Grace on his right and Ethan on his left. I smiled, they both looked so cute. The pool must have made them very tired. I looked at Alan and saw he also looked really tired. Of course he was the one running around with them at Stanley's.
I looked at the T.V. and the clock said eight o'clock. "Alan?" I said nudging his foot with mine. He looked over at me and yawned. "We should put the kids to bed." I said picking up Ethan. He nodded and picked up Ella Grace. I walked into Ethan's room and groaned when I saw how messy it was.
Toys were everywhere. Clothes lying everywhere. Ethan was the messy one by far. I placed him on his bed and kissed him on the forehead. "Sleep well" I muttered turning off the lights. I walked over to Ella Grace's room and smiled when I saw Alan pushing her hair out of her face. Ella's room was way cleaner than Ethan's room. Her room was bright pink while Ethan's room was a dark green. She was the princess of the family, not me. My smile got even bigger when Alan kissed her on the cheek and muttered "Night Princess"
He walked out of the room and gave me a hug. We walked into our room and got ready for bed. I was wearing one of his big button up shirts and he was wearing nothing, but P.J. pants. His chest and stomach was still very well toned.
"Like what you see?" He said getting into bed. "You know it" I said curling up beside him. "I'm living the American dream" He said.
I chuckled and curled up even closer to him. "I have the most beautiful wife and two amazing kids. Have my dream job and did I say a beautiful wife." He said chuckling. I nodded and kissed him.
"Does this remind you of anything?" I asked looking up at him with a smirk on my face. He nodded, "That one night at Camp Green Lake. The best one of my life" He said kissing me with much passion. "Of course. You got to see me naked" I said laughing. "That was one of the reasons."
"I still can't believe I'm married to you"
He slapped my ass. "Because you're a hot piece of ass." I slapped his chest and glared up at him. "Kidding. Okay maybe I wasn't" He said playing with my hair.
"Do you remember when I told you I was pregnant?" Alan nodded and laughed. "Didn't I pass out then woke up and started crying" I started laughing. I would have never in million years thought that's how Alan would react. I thought he was going to be mad and break up with me. It was not like that at all. I was so surprise. Of course when he reacted like that I had to tell the rest of the D-tent, which was the funniest thing in the world.
"Ricky still hasn't let it go yet" He muttered. Ricky was the worst one to. "Well we never that Squid would react like that. I mean you were always the badass at Camp Hell." I said. He busted out laughing at the nickname for Camp Green Lake.
Our bedroom door open and Ethan came walking in. "Ethan, what are you doing up?" I asked sitting up. "I went to the bathroom and heard you guys laughing." He said putting up on the bed. He curled up right next to Alan. "What's wrong?" Alan asked pulling him close. "My room is to dark" He mumbled starting to fall asleep.
Alan looked at me and I sighed. "You can sleep in here tonight, but that is it" Ethan nodded and soon fell asleep. Within a couple of seconds, Ella Grace ran in the room. "Ella?" I whisper helping her on the bed.
"I had a bad dream" I put her under the covers and kissed her head. I looked over to at Alan and smiled. He grabbed my chin and kissed me. "Good night, my Queen" He whisper kissing me again.
I smiled and curled up with Ella Grace. I had to agree with Alan, we were living the American dream. I finally had what I always dreamt of… The perfect family.
I finally got what a girl wants.
