Well, this is the last chapter of Restaurant Love.
Chapter 33- Restaurant Love
~10 Years Later~
Yugi walked into the house after he got off work. He walked into the living room and found Heba in the living room alone. "Hey, Heba." Yugi said.
"Hey, Yugi. How was work today?" Heba asked.
"It was fine. I'm working with a new assistant chef, so I'm showing her the ropes." Yugi said.
"What happened to the other assistant you had?" Heba asked.
"Well, Yami opened a new restaurant in another city, and my last assistant was the one that was chosen to be head chef at the new restaurant." Yugi answered.
"Okay. That makes sense." Heba agreed.
"So, were the kids good for you today?" Yugi asked as he sat down with Heba.
"They were all good. William hated going shopping, but that's nothing new." Heba said.
Yugi laughed. "Yeah. He prefers going shopping with Yami or Atemu because they get what they want and leave. They don't look around like you and I tend to do." Yugi said.
"Don't I know it." Heba said.
"Other than that, everything went fine." Yugi said.
"That's good." Yugi said.
"Papa!" a voice cried.
A moment later, a little boy with amethyst eyes and sharp features was in Yugi's lap/
"Hey, Chris. What are you doing?" Yugi asked.
"I missed you today." Chris said.
Chris was Yugi and Yami's four-year old son.
"Well, I missed you, too." Yugi said, hugging his son.
A moment later, another little boy ran into the room. "Papa!" the little boy said. He had crimson eyes and soft features along with tanned skin.
"What is it, Trevor?" Heba asked, standing up.
"Lindsey and William are fighting again." Trevor said.
Trevor was Atemu and Heba's four-year old son.
Trevor and Chris were only two weeks apart in age.
Yugi sighed. "I'll go and deal whit this. Chris, stay here with your uncle and cousin." Yugi said before he headed upstairs.
"Where is my doll?" Lindsey demanded.
"I don't know. I don't have it." William retorted.
"Yes, you do!" Lindsey shouted.
"I do not!" William said.
"Give it back!" Lindsey said.
"What is going on?!" Yugi demanded, walking into William's room.
Both instantly looked down, knowing they were in trouble.
"Well?" Yugi said, crossing his arms.
When Yugi started tapping his foot, Lindsey and William knew that Yugi wasn't leaving until he got an answer.
"William too my favorite doll and won't tell me where it is." Lindsey said.
"I didn't take your stupid doll!" William said.
"Yes you did!" Lindsey retorted.
"No, I didn't. I don't play with girly things!" William said.
"Enough!" Yugi said angrily.
Both looked at their father.
"William, did you take your sister's doll?" Yuugi asked.
"No." William said.
"William, look at me when you answer a question." Yugi said.
William looked up. "Papa, I didn't take the doll." William said.
"Uncle Yugi." Mayella said.
Yugi turned to see eleven-year old Mayella in the doorway. "Yes, Mayella. What is it?" Yugi asked.
"I saw Trevor with Lindsey's doll earlier." Mayella said.
"Trevor had it?" Yugi asked.
Mayella nodded. "He had it before we left to go shopping." Mayella said.
"Do you know why he took it?" Yugi asked.
"Well, he likes irritating me by taking my things and hiding them. Maybe he did the same thing." Mayella said.
"Come on." Yugi said.
Yugi headed downstairs with Mayella, Lindsey, and William behind him.
"Did you resolve it?" Heba asked.
"No quite. Trevor, did you take Lindsey's doll?" Yugi asked.
"Which one?" Trevor asked.
"My favorite one. Daddy got it for me for my birthday." Lindsey said.
"Trevor, did you take the doll?" Heba asked.
"Yes." Trevor said, not looking at Heba.
"Trevor, you know better than to take things that don't belong to you." Heba said sternly.
"I'm sorry, Papa." Trevor said.
"We'll talk about it later. Go get the doll and give it back to Lindsey. I also want you to apologize to her." Heba said.
"Yes, Papa." Trevor said and headed upstairs.
"I'm real sorry about this, Yugi." Heba said.
"Don't worry about it." Yugi said.
Trevor returned with the doll and handed it to Lindsey. "I'm sorry, Lindsey." Trevor said.
"It's okay, Trevor." Lindsey said.
"You kids go and play." Yugi said.
The kids ran off.
Yugi sat down beside Heba. "What is it with little kids and wanting to annoy older kids?" Yugi asked.
"I don't know. You know that we did it to each other." Heba said.
"Yeah. I know that." Yugi said.
"I guess we'll have to deal with a lot more of this." Heba said.
"I know what you mean." Yugi said.
"Yugi, are you and Yami still going to be able to watch Mayella and Trevor for me and Atemu tonight?" Heba asked.
"As far as I know, we are." Yugi answered.
"Thanks. I really need it. Atemu and I have to go to that business party tonight." Heba said.
"You don't sound happy about it." Yugi said.
"I don't like these business parties at all, but I have to go to them because I am Atemu's husband." Heba said.
"Well, we all do what we have to for our husbands." Yugi said.
"Yeah. You hate the business parties that you have to go to with Yami." Heba said.
"No kidding." Yugi said.
It wasn't long before front door opened, and Yami walked in.
"Hey, Yami." Yugi said, walking out of the living room.
"Hi, Yugi." Yami said, kissing Yugi. "How was your day?" Yami asked.
"Fine. Yours?" Yami asked.
"It was fine. I'm training the new assistant chef right now." Yugi said.
"Okay." Yami said as they walked into the living room.
"Hi, Yami." Heba said.
"Hi, Heba." Yami replied.
"You have been getting off work early a lot lately." Heba said.
"Well, I've had it easy lately." Yami answered.
"I have never heard you say that your job is easy." Yugi said.
"Daddy!" Lindsey said, running to her father.
"Hi, Lindsey." Yami said.
"Can we go to the park later?" Lindsey asked.
"We'll see." Yami said.
Lindsey nodded with a smile and ran off.
"You know that you'll end up taking her to the park." Yugi said.
"I know." Yami said.
"You know we'll be going there tomorrow for the reunion with all of our friends." Heba said.
"I know, but they'll have other kids to play with this time around." Yami said.
"That is true." Yugi agreed.
Yugi and Yami were in the living room while the kids were upstairs playing.
Atemu and Heba had gone on to the business dinner.
"It's nice just to have quiet evening alone like this." Yami said.
"I agree, but we can't forget that we have to keep an eye on the kids." Yugi said.
"I know." Yami said.
Lindsey and William walked into the room.
"Papa. Daddy." Lindsey said.
"What is it?" Yami asked.
"Well, we're supposed to write a paper on how our parents first met. It's for school, and we were wondering how you two first met." William said.
Yugi and Yami looked at each other.
"Well, the truth is that we met in a restaurant." Yami said.
"Really? Which one?" Lindsey asked as she sat beside Yugi and William sat beside Yami.
"Well, mine to be exact." Yami said.
"I don't get it." Lindsey said.
"Lindsey, your father's restaurant has been around for almost fifteen years. I was working at the restaurant in Tokyo for two years before we met." Yugi said.
"We actually met because I decided to have dinner at the restaurant one night. I found the meal exceptional and wanted to meet the chef. Yugi was the assistant chef at the time, and he was the one working that night." Yami said.
"And that's it?" William asked.
"As far as how we first met, yes." Yugi said.
"What happened after that?" Lindsey asked.
"Well, we happened to see at each other at the same coffee chop the next day. We hit it off." Yugi said.
"Really?" William asked.
"Yes. We started dating not long after that." Yami said.
"Wow. You had kinda of a restaurant love." Lindsey said.
Yugi chuckled. "Yes. I guess you could say that." Yugi said.
"Okay. We'll go and write the paper." Lindsey said before they dashed upstairs.
"Restaurant Love. Heba and Atemu have called it that so many times it's not funny." Yami said.
"I know, but it sounds sweet when they say it, and it's not untrue." Yugi said.
"I know what you mean." Yami agreed.
The following day, the group of friends had gathered together.
Ryou and Bakura had come with their son, Tyler, and their daughter, Amber. Both had white hair and brown eyes although Tyler had the sharper features like Bakura while Amber had softer features like Ryou. Tyler was nine, and Amber was seven.
Marik and Malik brought their two daughters, Mary and Alice. Both girls had the platinum blonde hair and lavender eyes, and both had Marik's sharp features. Mary was eight and Alice was five.
Seto and Joey brought their son, Seth, and their two daughters, Kate and May. Seth looked like a miniature Seto while Kate had brown hair and honey-gold eyes while May had blonde hair and blue eyes. Seth was almost ten, Kate was eight, and May was four.
Tristan and Tea brought their daughter Marie and their son, Ken. Ken looked like his father, and Marie looked like her mother. Marie was ten, and Ken was five.
"Hey, guys!" Joey said.
"Hey, Joey. Glad you could pull Seto away from work to be here." Atemu said.
"Atemu, I don't work all the time!" Seto snapped.
"He actually doesn't. He spends more time at home since we had kids." Joey said.
"Well, at least we're all here together." Tea said.
The adults sat down and watched as the children.
"I know that they love it when we all get together." Tristan said.
"That's because there's so many of them that they have someone their own age to play with." Heba said.
"Yeah, but I could do without this." Bakura grumbled. He secretly enjoyed being with their friends.
"Well, it is great to get together." Ryou said.
"I think that kids enjoy it as much as we do." Yugi said.
"Sometimes, I think that they enjoy it more." Atemu said.
"Well, it's great that our kids enjoy being together so much." Malik said.
"Maybe they'll all be as great of friends as we are." Yami said.
"We can always hope." Marik said.
The group lay in the grass as they enjoyed their day together.
~10 Years Later~
"Hey, Dad. Can I ask you something?" Lindsey asked.
"Sure thing." Yugi said to his twenty-year old daughter.
"I know that you and Daddy love each other, but I know you were pregnant before you two got married." Lindsey said.
"Yes, I did." Yugi said.
"What Lindsey wants to know is would you and Daddy have still gotten married if you hadn't gotten pregnant." William said bluntly.
"And what makes you think that?" Yugi asked.
"Well, you were pregnant before you were married. We thought that maybe you only got married because you were pregnant with us." Lindsey said.
Yugi smiled at the two. "I admit that I got pregnant before we were married, but no, we didn't get married because I was pregnant. Yami and I got married because we love each other. The fact is that Yami proposed to me before I got pregnant. It was a few months after he proposed that I got pregnant." Yugi said.
"Really?" William asked.
"Yes. We would have gotten married either way, but I wouldn't change how things happened." Yugi said.
"Really?" Lindsey asked.
"Yes. As you and everyone so eloquently put it, Yami and I have a restaurant love. We always loved each other, despite the many problems that we encountered along the way." Yugi said.
"So, neither of you regret how things turned out?" William asked.
"No. We don't." Yugi said.
"So, they really thought that the only reason we got married was because you got pregnant?" Yami asked.
"Yeah, they did, but we both know that's not true." Yugi said.
"Yeah. We got married because we love each other and wanted to be together." Yami said.
"You proposed before I got pregnant. Being pregnant changed things a little, but not too much." Yugi said.
"Yeah. Really, it just gave us two wonderful children and then another one years later." Yugi said.
"Well, we did really love each other." Yami said.
"And we still do." Yugi said.
"Hmm. I guess, in a way, we really do have a restaurant love." Yami said.
Yugi smirked. "Remember that time we actually made love in the restaurant kitchen?" Yugi asked.
"If anyone ever found out about that, it would cause some problems." Yami said.
"I guess so." Yugi agreed.
"You know, some people thought that being famous would end up destroying our marriage given all the people after me, but we proved them wrong." Yami said.
"Yeah, and we're staying together for good." Yugi said.
Yugi and Yami kissed each other.
They were together and would be for good.
And it all started with one meeting at a restaurant, which resulted in a restaurant love.
