Five years later...

Troy and Gabriella were sitting in the living room of their large-but not oversized-house. A baby girl that had been born only a month before was sleeping in Gabriella's arms. Abigail Rose Bolton, just the name that Gabriella had wanted for her daughter.

"I still can't believe how beautiful she is," Troy remarked. "She looks just like you."

"I'm still amazed that we could make a baby," said Gabriella. Ever since they had gotten married, Troy and Gabriella hadn't used protection when making love and Gabriella hadn't taken any pills. However, despite the fact that they had a very good sex life, Gabriella just couldn't seem to get pregnant. That had disappointed her greatly, and she had even cried about it a few times. Troy had been quick to comfort and assure her that it was alright, although he was just as disappointed as she was. So, as could be imagined, the day when Gabriella found out she was pregnant had been the best day ever for her and Troy since their wedding.

"Troy? Can I talk to you about something?" Gabriella asked as she walked into the master bedroom, where Troy was lying on the bed watching a movie.

"Anything." Turning off the TV, Troy sat up and motioned for his wife to sit beside him.

Gabriella took a seat, then announced, "I'm going to go out to the pharmacy."

"Why? Are you sick?" Troy instantly grew anxious with worry.

"Well, I did throw up this morning, but-"

"You did? Brie, sweetie, you need to be in bed!" Troy instantly grew frantic with worry.

"Troy, don't worry, I...I think it's just morning sickness, and I've missed two periods..."

"You think you're pregnant?" Troy's eyes lit up.

Gabriella nodded with a smile.

Wrapping his arms around Gabriella in a tight embrace, Troy crashed his lips down onto hers. "I knew that we would be able to have a baby one day," he told her when they pulled apart. His hand then went to her stomach and rubbed gently.

"Well, nothing's confirmed one hundred percent yet. I still have to go and get a pregnancy test."

"No, baby girl. I'll go. You need to rest." Kissing Gabriella's forehead, Troy slid off the bed and started to put on his sneakers.

"But Troy-"

"No protests. I'll be back soon." With that, Troy was gone.


Twenty minutes later, Troy and Gabriella were staring at the five positive pregnancy tests that were sitting on the bathroom counter, smiles on their faces. It was true: they were really having a baby.

Lifting Gabriella into his arms, Troy kissed her furiously. "I can't even begin to tell you how happy I am, Brie. All I can say is that I love you, and I love our baby already."

"I love you, too," Gabriella returned.

As Abigail opened her eyes, Troy placed his finger at her hand so she could hold it. "Awww, look at her smile," he said. "Just like yours." He kissed Gabriella's cheek.

"I'm so glad she doesn't have to grow up as a princess," Gabriella remarked.

"Well, she'll still be treated like one. She's going to be a spoiled daddy's girl." Troy smiled and held out his arms to take the baby from Gabriella.

Handing Abigail to Troy, Gabriella rested her head on his shoulder and looked down at her daughter. "She's so precious. The best thing that ever happened to me besides meeting you, Troy. I just wish my parents would be able to see and appreciate her."

"So do I, but you know, Brie, I guess not everyone sees love the way we see it. To be honest, I would be surprised if your mom and dad were still together."

"I'm sure they are, but only because they feel obligated to. I don't think they ever really loved each other. If they did, they would've felt the same way about me as we feel about Abby."

"You mean that we see her as a symbol of our love and because of that, treasure her forever?"

Gabriella nodded with a smile. "I'm so lucky I got to meet you. If I didn't, I would be married to some stranger that I had no real feelings for."

"Well, you have me, so you don't need to worry about anything." Troy kissed his wife on the lips. "I'm yours forever and nothing can change that."

Forever. That word echoed in Gabriella's head. Troy was hers forever.


So, that's is:'( I'm really going to miss working on this story. It was definitely one of the most fun ones I wrote. Sometime before Christmas, I'll be posting the first chapter of my new story about Troyella having 9 kids while Gabriella's pregnant with the 10th. I don't know what'll be called yet, so if you have any suggestions, let me know. Also, I was wondering, would you guys be interested in me writing more fairy tale type stories similar to this one? They probably wouldn't be full length, just oneshots. I'm putting a poll up on my page about it, so please vote there or tell me in a review. Thanks for reading this story!
