Chapter 6: Songs of Love

Back at HQ both Blitz and Krystal were standing outside the balcony of Krystal's room, looking out at the ocean for a while. They had returned an hour ago and decided to some time together before bed. News of their engagement was told and everyone was excited for the two. They left the radio on, listening to some random music as they discussed some plans for their wedding. "So when do you want to have it?" Krystal asked as had her arms wrapped around Blitz's arm.

"I'm not really sure, the sooner the better," he responded with a smile.

She just smiled as she rested her head on his arm, while they both enjoyed the embraced of each other. "I can't wait till then."

"I know, being married to the one who showed me love, can't wait for it either."

"I also can't believe that Exile and Jenna are engaged also." Shortly after they announced the news Exile and Jenna also announced their engagement. Everyone were happy for the two couples

Blitz nodded, "Ja, I'm glad for those two." Just then both of their ears perked as a familiar song played on the radio. They both smiled as they recognized the tune. "Remember this Krystal?"

She nodded, "Yes, you sang this song to me out on the beach."

He then wrapped his arms around her as he continued, "I heard this one day and thought of you, it felt special to me."

Flashback

Just outside the doors leading out to the beach Blitz and Krystal sat on a bench against the wall. They had just came back from a night out and wanted spend some time out on the beach before they headed inside. They had been talking about the night they had and enjoying the peace and quiet they were having. Sometime later Blitz said he was going inside to grab something. When he returned he had a small radio with a CD player. When Krystal saw this she had to ask, "What are you doing?"

He put the radio down and then took her hands into his, "Krystal I would like to sing you a song I heard. When I listened to it I thought of you and how you helped me."

She smiled as she heard this and nodded, "Sure Blitz I'd love to hear it."

He smiled as he reached over and turned on the radio and played the song. The music started as he began to sing 'All I Need Is You' by Kenny Rogers.

Sometimes when I'm down and alone
I feel just like a child with out a home
The love you give me keeps me hangin' on, honey
All I ever need is you

You're my first love, you're my last
You're my future, you're my past
Ohhh loving you is all I ask, honey
All I ever need is you

Winters come and then they go
And we watch the melting snow
Sure summer follows spring, all the things you do
Give me a reason to build my world around you

( World around you )

Some men follow rainbows I am told
Some men search for silver, some for gold
But I found my treasures in my soul
And all I ever need is you

Without love I'd never find the way
Through ups and downs of every single day
And I won't sleep at night until you say
Honey, all I ever need is you

La, La, La, La, La, La
The love you give me keeps me hangin' on
Honey, all I'll ever need is you

La, La, La, La, La, La
But I found my treasures in my soul
Honey, and all I ever need is you

La, La, La, La, La, La

As the song ended Krystal had a tear in her eyes, she loved it, "Blitz that was beautiful."

"Ja, thank you, I knew you would love it." They both then leaned in as they both kissed long and with passion.

End Flashback

It was so beautiful when you sang it to me that night," Krystal said.

"I know, I just had to sing it to you when I heard it."

"And I'm glad you did." They spent some time talking a bit more till they both decided to go to bed. They said goodnight as they parted, and when they were in bed, they fell asleep dreaming about their future together.

Inside the rec room Exile and Jenna both entered the empty room. Exile had said that before they went to bed he wanted to do something quick. As they walked to the center the room Jenna asked, "So Exile what is it that you wanted to do."

He didn't say anything as he walked over to the nearby stereo and inserted a disk he pulled out. He pressed play and a familiar song flowed into their ears. As it continued Exile walked back over to Jenna, "remember this?"

She nodded after he finished, "Yes we danced to this song that one night."

After her statement he held out his hand for hers, "Care to repeat that moment?"

She smiled as she took it as they closed the gap between each other and started moving.

Flashback

Both Exile and Jenna were walking back to the Street Rover after spending some time looking at the ocean. As they approached the car Exile stopped for a sec, "Jenna…I was kind of wondering if you would like to do something before we head back?"

"What is it?" She asked.

"Would you like to have a small dance?

Jenna smiled as she heard the request and nodded, "Sure I'd love to."

That in turn made Exile smile as he walked over to the Street Rover and turned on the radio to a random station. He returned to her as they held each others hand and waited for the music to start. They began moving as the song 'Close to You' by the Carpenters started to play.

Why do birds suddenly appear

Every time you are near?

Just like me, they long to be

Close to you.

Why do stars fall down from the sky

Every time you walk by?

Just like me, they long to be

Close to you.

As he continued to dance Exile looked into Jenna's hazel eyes and was struck at how beautiful they were.

On the day that you were born

The angels got together

And decided to create a dream come true

So they sprinkled moon dust in your hair of gold

And starlight in your eyes of blue.

That is why all the girls in town

Follow you all around.

Just like me, they long to be

Close to you.

Jenna looked at Exile and was amazed at how handsome he was in the moon light. She sighed happily as she rested her head on his chest.

On the day that you were born

The angels got together

And decided to create a dream come true

So they sprinkled moon dust in your hair of gold

And starlight in your eyes of blue.

That is why all the girls in town

Follow you all around.

Just like me, they long to be

Close to you.

Just like me (Just like me)

They long to be

Close to you.

Wahhhhhhhhhhh, close to you.

Wahhhhhhhhhhh, close to you.

Hahhhhhhhhhhh, close to you.

Lahhhhhhhhhhh, close to you.

Even as the song ended they continued moving, they were lost in the love they had for each other. "You dance beautifully Jenna."

"You're not so bad yourself," She responded. They both smiled as they kept the embrace, both not wanting to let go.

End Flashback

They both stopped dancing as the song ended, both with smiles on their faces. "Just like that one night," Jenna said.

He nodded, "Yes, I'll cherish that moment for a long time."

"Me too, for sure."

They both left the room as they headed to theirs. Once outside of Jenna's room they gave each other a big hug before they gave each other a kiss goodnight. "Night my love," Exile said.

Goodnight too, my handsome husky." They both parted as Jenna went into her room. Exile happily walked back to his room and fell asleep with a smile on his face.

Inside Shadow and Sierra room they both were getting ready for bed and talking about the recent news they heard today. "I can't believe everything that's going to happen soon," Sierra said as she brushed her hair.

"I know," Shadow said as he finished changing into his pajamas. "Two couples are soon to be married, and are children are having a child of their own."

"Wonderful things they are," She said as she walked to their bed and climbed in. "I knew things would happen between Blitz, Krystal, Exile and Jenna. I know they will be happy together."

Shadow walked to the bed and joined her, "Kind of reminds me of the love we share."

She smiled as she heard that, "You were very handsome the first time I saw you."

"And you were very beautiful the first time I saw you."

"I'm glad we met, and fell in love," She said as she lay down.

"So do I my love," He responded as he lay down beside her. She was caught off guard as Shadow wrapped his arms around her waist and pulled her close. As Sierra snuggled into her husband's warm embrace she heard his voice. He was singing a familiar tune into her ear as he held her. It was the song he sang for her right after they admitted they love for each other. She smiled as she remembered that night.

Flashback

They both parted after they kissed with smiles on their faces. Shadow then pulled Sierra into a warm embrace and held on for a minute. They both enjoyed being close to on another. As Sierra was enjoying his warmth she began hearing his voice, it took her a couple more seconds before she realized that he was singing. Shadow was singing the song 'First Time Ever I Saw Your Face' by Roberta Flack.

The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and stars were the gifts you gave
To the dark and the empty skies, my love,
To the dark and the empty skies.

The first time ever I kissed your mouth
And felt your heart beat close to mine
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was there at my command, my love
That was there at my command.

And the first time ever I lay with you
I felt your heart so close to mine
And I knew our joy would fill the earth
And last till the end of time my love
It would last till the end of time my love

The first time ever I saw your face, your face,
your face, your face

As he finished she turned back and looked at his face. She saw she had a big smile on her face, "I hope you like it," Shadow said.

"Shadow that was so beautiful, I never knew you could sing like that."

"That song was one of the reasons that helped my feelings for you. I just had to sing it after I said it."

She ended up hugging him as he finished, "I'm glad you did."

He returned the hug, "So do I." They stayed like that for a while longer, both enjoying each other's presents.

End Flashback

Sierra sighed happily as Shadow finished the song. She was glad he sang it again; it made things more better now. "I love you Shadow," She said as she closed her eyes.

He smiled as he shut his eyes also, "I love you to Sierra." They both were asleep in moments both wrapped up in their love.

Inside Ariel and Axel's room they too were getting ready for bed. Both were still talking about the news that Hunter and Colleen gave earlier. "You know I sort of knew they would be the first ones to bring a child into the world," Axel said as he finished getting changed.

"I know, I just brings me joy that this is happening," Ariel responded as she headed their bed.

Axel nodded he walked over and sat next to his wife, "We're soon to be aunt and uncle, it sounds real good to say that."

She smiled as she took one of Axel's hands into hers, "Make me wonder when we're going to have one of our own."

Axel looked into her eyes and saw the sincerity in them. He then took her hands into both of his, "One day, I promise…Just like I said in the past I would do anything for you. A matter of fact." He walked and grabbed his guitar then returned to her side. "Do you remember this song?" He then strummed a few strings and a familiar tune filled the room. Ariel smiled as she remembered which song it was. He sang it to her the night they were reunited.

Flashback

Ariel got up and went to the couch and waited for Axel to return. A couple of minutes later he came back with his guitar and sat down next to Ariel. "You play an instrument," Ariel said.

Axel nodded, "Yes I like to play while I sing. The song I'm going to sing expresses how much you mean to me and what I would give for you. It's called 'Don't Take the Girl' by Tim McGraw. Axel started playing his guitar and then started to sing.

Johnnys daddy was taking him fishin
When he was eight years old
A little girl came through the front gate holdin a fishing pole
His dad looked down and smiled, said we cant leave her behind
Son I know you dont want her to go but someday youll change your mind
And johnny said take jimmy johnson, take tommy thompson, take my best friend bo
Take anybody that you want as long as she dont go
Take any boy in the world
Daddy please dont take the girl

Same old boy
Same sweet girl
Ten years down the road
He held her tight and kissed her lips
In front of the picture show
Stranger came and pulled a gun
Grabbed her by the arm said if you do what I tell you to, there wont be any harm
And johnny said take my money, take my wallet, take my credit cards
Heres the watch that my grandpa gave me

Heres the key to my car
Mister give it a whirl
But please dont take the girl

Same old boy
Same sweet girl
Five years down the road
Theres going to be a little one and she says its time to go
Doctor says the babys fine but youll have to leave
cause his mommas fading fast and johnny hit his knees and there he prayed
Take the very breath you gave me
Take the heart from my chest
Ill gladly take her place if youll let me
Make this my last request
Take me out of this world
God, please dont take the girl

Johnnys daddy
Was taking him fishin
When he was eight years old

Axel finished singing and looked at Ariel. She had tears in her eyes, "Axel that was beautiful."

Axel put his guitar down and held Ariel's hand, "all those would I meant. I would give up anything to keep you with me."

"I Love you so much," Ariel said.

"I love you too Ariel," Axel said.

End Flashback

As Axel finished the song he put the guitar to the side and looked back at Ariel, "The night I sand that song, was the same night I made a promise. I would do anything for you, just because I love you."

Ariel had a tear running down her face as she heard that, and hugged her, "I love you so much Axel.

"I love you too Ariel. There's nothing I wouldn't do for you." Nothing else was said as they both got in bed and fell asleep in each other's embrace, the promise that was binded by love made them both smile.

Inside Hunter and Colleen's room they both were ready for bed but they couldn't go to sleep because they were still talking about their future child. Hunter was happy to know that he was going to be a father, the same for Colleen knowing she was going to be a mother. They were both sitting at the foot of their bed with Hunter's arms wrapped around her. "So soon to be mom, how are you feeling?"

Colleen smiled at the comment, "I'm fine, how about you soon to be dad?"

"Great, I would have never thought our love would bring a child into the world."

She rested her head on his shoulder, "Me neither, this is something I wanted ever since we married. To be a mother, have a child and to have a husband and father to raise our child."

"I wouldn't miss it for the world," He responded as he pulled his wife close. "And to this all started because we were both afraid to admit our love for each other."

Colleen laughed a bit as she remembered, "But it was worth it, as it lead up to now."

Hunter then stood up and walked over to their stereo and inserted a CD into it. "And this help jump start our love." Pressed play as a song started to play.

Colleen's ears perked as the words of the song flowed into her ears. "Oh Huntie, this is the song we sang the night we admitted our love for each other."

He smiled as he walked back over and wrapped her back into his embrace. "That was a great night."

Flashback

They both broke apart and they both stared into each others eyes happy to have admitted their love for each other. Hunter spoke up, "Colleen if you'd want to I would like to sing a duet with that symbolizes are new love for each other. It's called "The Day I Fall In Love" By James Ingram."

Colleen smiled, "yes Huntie I would love that."

Hunter smiled as he went to his portable stereo and cued the song.

Hunter:
Just an ordinary day,
Started out the same old way.
Then I looked into your eyes and knew
Today would be,
A first for me
The day I fall in love

Colleen:
On the day I fall in love,
The sky will be a perfect blue.
And I'll give my heart forever more
To someone who,
Is just like you.
The day I fall in love

Both:
People all say,
Love is wondeful.
That the bells will ring,
Birds will sing
And skies will open.
I wonder where's that great big symphony.
Roll over Beethoven,
Won't you play with me?

And I'll never to be true
To anyone
(
Hunter):Unless its you
(
Colleen): Unless its you
The day I fall in love.

People all say love is wonderful
That bells will ring,
Birds will sing,
And skies will open.
I wonder wheres that great big symphony
(
Hunter): I'll be your Beethoven
(
Colleen): Roll over, Beethoven
(
Hunter): Come and play with me

BOTH:
Just an ordinary day,
Started out the same old way.
Then I looked into your eyes and knew
Today would be
(
Colleen): A first for me
(
Hunter):A first for me
The day I fall in love.

(Hunter): I know you'll be there
(
Colleen): Oh oh..
(
Both): The day I fall in love

As the song ended they were both holding each other close. Hunter spoke, "You sing like a angel Colleen."

Colleen smiled, "You too Huntie." They both moved their head close till their lips met for a very passionate kiss.

End Flashback

They both were kissing as the song ended, the words reminding them of their love for each other. they broke apart after a minute, both looking into each other's eyes. "That was such a beautiful song Huntie," Colleen said.

"Not as beautiful as you," He responded with a smile. They both hugged one another then they both climbed into bed. "So Colleen when do you think our child will be born?"

"I'm not sure, but professor Hubert said since were dogs the pregnancy should be shorter."

"Well that's good news then, I can't wait have my new family in my arms."

"I can't wait for it either." They both kissed each other goodnight as they lay down and closed their eyes. "Goodnight Huntie."

"Goodnight Colleen."

They were both soon asleep, both of their dreams filled of the happy moments of their future. Them both and their child, they all enjoying the time together as a family. Hunter and Colleen held each other both waiting for the day they can be call mom and dad.
