Chapter 1.

It's been 10 years since they graduated, Brittany was standing in the kitchen doing the dishes looking out in the back garden where Kurt of all people was setting up a swing set. Suddenly she felt a pair of arms wrap around her from behind. She smiled.


"Hi baby." Santana said. Then she rubbed Brittany belly, "Hi to you too." She kissed Brittany's shoulder.

"We're fine, Santana. You don't have to come check on me every minute." She loved how Santana would protect her and their unborn baby, but lately she had been doing it a lot more. Santana turned Brittany around and kissed her on the lips.

"I know. But I just want the two of you to be…." She stopped for a second and looked outside the window.." Emh.. Britt?"

"Yeah San?"

"Is that really Hummel being our handyman?" She looked confused.

"San…." Brittany put her arms around her neck. They looked right in each others eyes. "Be nice, okay? He bought it and came over with it today, and he really wanted to help set it up. So no jokes about it." Brittany pouted.

Santana let out a sight. "I can't promise anything. Look at him, he's wearing his Armani suit and he looks so confused." Santana just kept looking at him. She could see that he was messing up bad, now trying to superglue the pieces together. Brittany was also watching.

"Maybe we shouldn't let our kid play with that until we get someone else to look at it." She said.

Santana just started to run into the living room, she quickly came back with a camera.


"What?" She was about to walk out the door and out to Kurt.

"No joking about this."

Santana took a deep breath. "Look, Britt. You know I'll do anything for you right?" Brittany just nodded. " Well, I would.. And then there are these really, really rare moments in life when you just wish you had a camera so you could capture it on tape. Right now that moment is happening right in front of my eyes. I would be a waste not to film this.

Brittany started to smile. Santana knew that was all she needed so she ran out in the backyard. Brittany walked into the living room but she could still hear Kurt and Santana outside. "Really Santana? You're going to film this?.. "Ohh come on Kurt, this is priceless." And then she heard Santana laughing really loud. She couldn't help but laugh herself. She sat down on the couch, she was a little tired, but happy to see that the house was coming together. She laid down and started to think about how she got to be this happy, she knew it was all Santana's fault. Then a thought came to her, up until she found out she was pregnant and off course after their wedding, her favorite memory was when Santana had asked her to marry her six years earlier.


"Brittany.. Come on! We're gonna be late if you don't hurry up."

And then Brittany came running down the stairs, she kissed her girlfriend.

"I was just trying to make myself look pretty for you" She smiled.

"You are always pretty Britt. In fact I think you are the most beautiful girl in the word." She took her girlfriends hand.

"You don't know that San, you haven't seen all the girls in the world."

Santana smiled and kissed Brittany. "Trust me. I just know"

Then she dragged Brittany out to the car. They both got in.

"So where are we going?" Brittany said, she still had Santana's hand in her own.

"I told you, it's a surprise."

Santana had set up a picnic on their favorite spot down by the nearest lake. They both enjoyed spending time down there. Santana had made it all perfect, she had, asked Quinn if she could be there 5 minutes before they would arrive and light up the candles. Of course Quinn had said yes, and right after that she had said, it's about time Lopez!

Suddenly Brittany turned up the volume on the radio. "Ohh San, this is such a beautiful song. Did you know that the song is true? That his girlfriend was in a car crash?"

Santana turned her head to Brittany. "Yeah I know Britt."

It was Chris Medina's song. They both stopped talking to listen to the song.



"What if that happened to me?" Brittany looked a little worried.

"What are you talking about Britt?"

"I mean. What if something happened to me, would you still be with me?"

Santana lifted Brittany's hand up to her mouth and kissed it.

"Baby… I'm going to be with you for the rest of my life no matter what. Nothing could ever happened to change that. I promise you."

Brittany smiled. " Even if I end up…" She didn't get to finish her sentence.

"Even then Brittany.. I promise you, I'll be there."

Brittany was satisfied with that answer.

By now they were on a little dirt road that would lead down to the lake. Suddenly smoke started to come up from the car. They pulled over Santana took a look at the engine.

"Honestly Britt, I have no idea of what I'm suppose to look at here."

Then Santana's phone started ringing. It was Quinn.

"Hello? "

"Where the hell are you? It's even getting dark outside."

"I'm having car trouble." She looked at Brittany, she was still inside the car.

"Really San? Sure about that? You're not just chickening out are you?"

"Quinn! No I'm not, trust me I wanna do this. We're at the beginning of the dirt road."

She didn't get an answer. She looked at her phone." ahh damn reception. "

Brittany got out of the car. Stopping her girlfriend, who was about to put her hands down in the engine again.

"San.. Don't. You're just gonna end up making it worse."

Santana put her hands up in her face and started shaking her head.

"I'm sorry.. " She looked at Brittany. "This wasn't part of the plan."

Brittany started to laugh.

"What?" Santana said.

"You've got oil on your face San." Brittany started to wipe it away with her thumb.

Santana looked at her with a sad face. "Britt?" Brittany nodded her head. " Will you still love me if this is as good as it gets?" She said, a little worried.

"What do you mean?"

"I mean that… The way we live our life's now. You teaching dance, me basically taking whatever job I can find. I was suppose to become something great. " She looked down to the ground. " If this is as good as it gets for me, will that be enough for you? I. I..I.. mean in the long run."

Brittany put her hand on her girlfriends cheek. And made sure that Santana looked her right in the eyes. "First of all, You are something great. You're Santana fucking Lopez." She said. Both girls laughing out loud. "But most importantly, you're the love of my life. It doesn't matter where we are, or what we do, as long as we are both happy."

They kissed, and Santana decided that it was time, didn't matter where they were.

She got down on one knee and opened the box. She took Brittany's hand. "I love you, so much that it hurts sometimes. I got this whole thing set up by the lake, but for obvious reasons we can't go there now. " Both girls laughed a little. " You're it Brittany, You are the one. I knew it then, I know it now, I'll know forever. And I'm a dumb ass sometimes. But I'll be the biggest dumb ass out there if I'll ever let you go, so…" She took the ring out of the box, took Brittany's hand, looked her right in the eyes. " Would you please marry me?"

Brittany just nodded.

"Yes?" Santana asked.

"Yes." Brittany said back.

Santana slipped the ringer on her finger, got back up and kissed Brittany, both girls smiling in to every kiss.


Brittany had the biggest smile on her face, yepp. That was definitive one of the best memories she had. Santana came back into the house. She walked over to Brittany. Kissed her on the cheek. " What about Oliver?"

"Huh?" Brittany was confused.

"For our baby boy." She placed a hand on Brittany's belly. "I really like the name Oliver, and I know you really like that Disney movie, Oliver and company."

Brittany gave Santana the biggest smile ever. " Oliver Pierce-Lopez" she said.. "I like it."

Santana kissed Brittany. " So do I."

Santana got up from the sofa. " Look, I really need to get back out there, it's a mess, I'm pretty sure we can just throw the whole thing away after Kurt is finished setting t up." she laughed. Brittany did too.

Santana started to walk towards the door. When she heard Brittany.

"I love you Santy."

Santana could only smile. "I love you too babe." she said back.

Then she whispered to herself. "You have no idea how much."
