Thank you to every one who bothered to read my story and those who added it to their alerts and favorites and all those who reviewed! Writing this has been a blast! I also want to apologize for the delayed update between the holidays, work and endless christmas parties I barely have time to sleep. I hope this last chapter is worth the wait.
I don't own anything.
As always thank you to my beta BrSoccerChic

Brittany watched as her mom kissed her father before the doctors had to take him to the OR. When it was her turn, she gave her father a big smile and a kiss on the forehead before saying, "See you later ok? We'll be waiting for you."
Her father chuckled, "Ok honey."
All three women headed to the waiting area to begin the 10-hour wait. Brittany sat with her mom while her sister went home to drop Andrew off with her in-laws.
Brittany and her mom sat quietly with Brittany's arms around her mother trying to feed each other strength and comfort. After two hours her mother was fast asleep on one of the couches in the waiting room, exhausted from the anxiety of the past few days. Brittany tried to pass the time by reading the various magazines littered throughout the waiting area. She didn't want to think about how they're opening up her dad's chest so instead she focused her thoughts on the drastic improvement of her relationship with her family over the past couple of months. They even got to meet Santana when they visited her in New York and although it was awkward at first, they eventually warmed up to her.
Brittany couldn't help but smile a little when she thought about how nervous Santana was during dinner with her family. But in the end she managed to charm her way into her family's good side.
Brittany sighed before tossing the old magazine aside. She was missing her girlfriend even if they'd only been apart for two days.
She was reaching for another magazine when she saw her sister approaching with a smile on her face and coffee in one hand.
"Hey sis, look who I found in the lobby," her sister said before stepping aside to reveal an obviously sleep deprived Santana clutching three cups of coffee.
After the initial shock wore off, Brittany jumped from her seat and enveloped Santana in a tight hug. Santana chuckled trying to keep the coffee from spilling all over while returning Brittany's embrace using one arm.
"What are you doing here?" Brittany asked pulling Santana tighter.
"I wasn't sure I could get time off from work which is why I didn't say anything. But you know that I'm here for you Britt, for you and your family. I could make coffee runs or buy lunch."
Brittany pulled back and gave Santana a chaste kiss on the lips knowing that she still feels uncomfortable with excessive displays of affection in front of Brittany's family.
Anne cleared her throat and gave both girls a smile.
"Did someone come out of the operating room to give us a status on Daddy?" Anne asked her sister.
"Not yet." Brittany answered and Anne just nodded.
They all sat down and Santana busied herself in preparing Brittany's coffee, making sure to leave plenty of sugar and cream for Brittany's mother.
The door of the operating room opened and Brittany gently shook her mother awake so they could all talk to her father's attending physician.
Santana waited with bated breath trying to decipher what was happening. She let out a sigh of relief when she saw Brittany smile and the three Pierce women hugged each other.
Brittany enveloped Santana in a hug and gave her the news, "He's doing well and the damage to his arteries was not as extensive as they originally thought."
"That's great news Britt." Santana said relieved with the update from Jack's doctor.
When Santana pulled away she looked at Brittany's mother and offered her a shy smile. "Hi Mrs. Pierce, I hope you don't mind me coming over." Santana said suddenly feeling a little nervous.
"Thanks for coming Santana, we need all the support we can get. Now where is that coffee I smelled earlier?" Linda said smiling at Santana who immediately grabbed the coffee for Brittany's mom.
After a few minutes the four women settled in the waiting area trying to find ways to pass the time.
"Here Britt, I already put in the two packets of sugar and creamer just the way you want it." Santana said, handing Brittany her coffee.
Brittany took the coffee from Santana's hand and said the words that she had been dying to say for weeks now but never found the opportunity, "I love you."
Santana was taken by surprise at the words that came out of Brittany's mouth but after processing what Brittany said she looked up to meet Brittany's eyes and said, "I love you too."
Later that day, Santana was brushing her teeth in the bathroom of the hotel room she rented near the hospital. Brittany's sister Anne offered her the pullout couch but she politely refused, not wanting to be a burden since her visit was not exactly under the best of circumstances. Since Brittany's mom was staying in the guest room at Anne's house, Brittany was staying with Santana tonight. The grueling wait ended after 10 hours and after that all of them patiently waited for Jack Pierce to wake up in the recovery room. He gave them a tired smile and a thumbs up. With that they all decided to turn in for the night since Jack needed his rest anyway.
When she came out of the bathroom, she smiled a little when she saw Brittany already in her pajamas, sprawled on the hotel bed. She knew that Brittany was not only physically but emotionally exhausted as well.
She carefully slipped under the covers not wanting to disturb her sleeping girlfriend. Brittany must have sensed her presence because she automatically pulled Santana closer to her body. Assuming the big spoon position, Brittany kissed the back of Santana's neck inhaling her familiar scent and with her eyes still closed said, "Thank you for coming here."
Santana shifted to face Brittany and placed a gentle kiss on her girlfriends lips, "You mean the world to me Britt and I would drop everything and anything to be with you and help or support you in any way that I can. You're my best friend too, you know?" Santana said.
Instead of answering, Brittany pulled Santana in for a kiss and when they parted Santana gave her a soft smile. Brittany smiled back and draped an arm over Santana to hold her closer.
Brittany was drifting off to sleep when she heard Santana call her name.
"Hmmm." Brittany answered snuggling closer to Santana.
"Babe, earlier when you saidÖ" Santana started but before she could finish her sentence Brittany said, "I love you."
"Yes that, did you uhmm...did you mean it?" Santana said, suddenly feeling embarrassed.
Brittany giggled and looked up to cup Santana's face and repeated, "I love you, Santana Lopez." Santana beamed at Brittany and gave her a chaste kiss on the lips, "I love you too, Brittany Pierce."
After a few more gentle kisses they both fell asleep in each other's arms.
9 months later
"I still think it's unfair, babe." Brittany said pouting at her girlfriend who was busy rummaging through her closet.
"Britt, I can't be Frodo's maid of honor, you know that." Santana said, not looking up from the piles of clothes she had made a mess of, amazed that almost half of them belonged to Brittany.
Before Brittany could answer they heard someone buzzing at the door and the blonde volunteered to go see who it was. After a few seconds Santana heard Brittany yell, "Quinn's here babe!"
Santana stepped out of the room a few minutes later wearing a red striped dress that left little to the imagination.
"Someone's really excited tonight." Quinn said raising her eyebrows at Santana's outfit.
"Santana, you're not going to a strip club wearing that!" Brittany said exasperated.
"But Britt I look super hot in this." Santana retorted.
"Maybe you should go to Rachel's shower instead and I'll go with Quinn." Brittany said, not backing down.
"No! Tell her Quinn! Tell her that you actually need Rachel to be alive in order to marry her because if I go to her stupid luncheon I might actually kill her." Santana said panicking.
"As much as I would like to see Santana suffer her way through sandwiches, tea, crumpets and scones, I would have to side with Santana this time. I don't think my in-laws would approve of Santana calling their daughter midget." Quinn said, looking at her two friends in amusement.
"And I'm going to let your threat to my future wife's life slide because you are paying for our little trip today." Quinn added with a smug smile on her face.
"Fine but I have to show you something first." Brittany said tugging Santana inside the bedroom.
Quinn sighed and flopped down the couch. After 15 minutes Quinn thought she heard a moan inside Santana's room and she immediately stood up to make sure that was indeed what she had heard.
What the fuck? Quinn thought to herself when the moaning grew louder as she approached the door. She knocked on the door of Santana's room loudly saying, "You guys are disgusting!"
The moaning immediately stopped and after a few seconds, Brittany and Santana exited both disheveled and guilty with Santana sporting a fresh hickey on her neck.
"You're both gross." Quinn stated.
"Fuck off Quinn, think of it as payback for the number of times I had to use earplugs because your fiancée thought it was a good idea to belt out a note every time she has an orgasm." Santana said defensively. Quinn just rolled her eyes at Santana and said "Whatever Satan, let's just go and get this over with."
Brittany managed to find a coat and drape it over Santana's shoulder. Santana sighed and looked at her jealous girlfriend who was still pouting and was pulling at the hem of Santana's dress in a fruitless effort to cover her girlfriend's exposed legs.
Santana laughed and pulled Brittany in for a soft kiss and said, "How about you ditch the gremlin and I ditch Barbie then we can have our own private party?"
Brittany smiled and started trailing kisses along Santana's jaw and when she reached Santana's earlobe whispered, "That's an awesome idea babe but I think we're about to be vaporized; Quinn looks like she'll be shooting fire from her eyes any second now."
Santana turned to look at Quinn who was glaring at them. Santana giggled and pulled Brittany in for another quick kiss,
"Don't have too much fun, ok?" Brittany, said another pout forming on her lips.
"I promise to be as miserable as possible before, after and during the lap dances." Santana said, teasing her girlfriend who was pouting again.
Brittany reluctantly let go of her girlfriend while Quinn rolled her eyes at them. Brittany showed them to the door and Brittany gave her another quick kiss on the lips before saying, "Santana Lopez, you have six hickeys: two on your thighs, two on your twins, one on your tummy and one on your neck. You better come back with those exact six, ok? I love you."
Santana smiled and placed another kiss on Brittany's lips. "I love you." Santana said before finally joining Quinn, who was glaring at them.
"Be here when I get back?" Santana said looking back at Brittany who was still at the door.
"See you later." Brittany answered, blowing Santana a kiss before heading back inside Santana's apartment to get ready for Rachel's bridal luncheon.
The following morning Santana woke up to the smell of bacon and coffee. She groaned when she felt her head pounding, the effect of too much tequila and vodka last night.
She almost crawled her way out of her bedroom towards the heavenly smell. Santana was able to make it to the couch where she curled into a tight little ball intending to ease the massive headache that had replaced the pounding in her head.
Santana felt soft, warm fingers caress her cheeks and she opened a bleary eye to meet worried blue ones.
"Hey babe, how are you feeling?" Brittany asked Santana.
"Head hurts." Santana mumbled leaning into Brittany's hand. Brittany kissed Santana's forehead and slowly withdrew her hand from Santana who fell right back into sleep.
Santana woke up for the second time that day with her girlfriend placing kisses all over her face.
"Hi baby." Santana said sitting up and feeling a bit better than the last time she woke up.
"Rough night?" Brittany asked handing Santana a glass of water, a banana and an aspirin. Santana just nodded and after drinking the water and eating the banana and aspirin she pulled Brittany in for a kiss.
"Thanks. Have I told you that you're like the best girlfriend ever?" Santana said smiling at Brittany.
"Hmm tell me again." Brittany answered pulling Santana closer.
"You're awesome Britt and I love you." Santana said giving Brittany another kiss.
"I love you too babe." Brittany said in between kisses.
"I'll say it again, you guys are disgusting." Quinn said, suddenly making an appearance in the living room after spending the night in her old room.
"You're just jealous because unlike you I have a gorgeous girlfriend instead of an oompa loompa reject." Santana said while placing small kisses all over Brittany's face.
Quinn gave Santana the finger before asking Brittany, "I smelled bacon. Where is it?"
Brittany chuckled and said, "It's in the kitchen, help yourself."
"Enjoy it while you can Fabgay, I'm pretty sure you'll be eating bacon made of wheatgrass or something once you get married." Santana added.
Quinn just rolled her eyes and headed to the kitchen.
"San, you want some coffee, bacon and pancakes?" Brittany asked Santana who was snuggling comfortably with her.
At the mention of food, Santana's stomach rumbled which made Brittany laugh. As much as she wants to stay cuddled up on the couch with Brittany, she couldn't ignore her hunger either. With a sigh, Santana disentangled herself from her girlfriend to stand up. She offered her girlfriend a hand and they both headed to the kitchen where they found Quinn shoving bacon in her mouth.
"Geez Quinn, save some for us." Santana said scowling.
"I'll cook some more." Brittany said letting go of Santana's hand to open the fridge and took out the bacon.
After a few minutes Brittany and Santana were feeding each other pancakes and bacon while Quinn ignored the blatant display of affection between the two by reading The New Yorker.
"What happened last night? Did you have fun babe? I slept like a log and didn't hear you come in." Brittany asked Santana after taking a sip of coffee. Quinn snorted when she heard the question.
"Uhmm, I'm not really sure what happened except that there were lots of Patron and Skyy vodka involved." Santana answered, her headache returning when she tried to think about the events last night.
"I'll tell you what happened. Santana here together with my friends from work bought me a lap dance with this super hot girl and everything was going swell when I caught Santana staring at, surprise surprise this amazing pole dancer with long blonde hair and blue eyes. Being the good friend that I am I thought I would put her out of her misery and asked the girl if she could give Santana a lap dance."
Brittany narrowed her eyes and turned to look at Santana, who by the looks of it was slowly remembering last night's events.
Santana buried her face in her hands and uttered, "Oh God." while Quinn continued with the story.
"Santana here refused but then I said the magic words which in case you're wondering are 'whipped beyond recognition'. Then she started downing the vodka and tequila shots one after the other for courage." Quinn said holding back her laughter.
"When Candy finally came to our table to give Santana a lap dance, she leaned in to whisper something in Santana's ears and your girlfriend here totally flipped out, she shoved Candy away and started crying about a 7th hickey. Needless to say we were kicked out of the club and told to never come back." Quinn finished and Brittany burst out laughing.
"Wow, I guess I could lock you up in a room full of hot girls and not worry about it." Brittany said teasing Santana, who still had her head buried in her hands.
"If that happened I'd expect Santana to actually claw her way out of the room before they could touch her, judging by the way she toppled Candy out of her lap." Quinn added, clearly amused by how whipped her friend is.
Brittany started peppering kisses on Santana's neck that got the other girl's attention and soon enough the two were in a furious make out in front of Quinn who just rolled her eyes.
After a few hours Brittany and Santana were both curled up on the couch watching a Keeping Up With the Kardashians marathon.
"San." Brittany said getting Santana's attention.
"Hmm?" Santana answered.
"I like waking up with you in my arms." Brittany said.
Santana rolled over to face Brittany and said, "Me too."
"When I sleep in my apartment, I kiss your picture in my phone before I go to bed." Brittany continued.
Santana chuckled and placed a light kiss on Brittany's lips.
"Earlier when I was making breakfast I was thinking that I wouldn't mind getting up early in the morning just to cook for you." Brittany added.
"You know I'm ok with eating something else in the morning too." Santana said suggestively and started kissing Brittany's neck.
"Hey, focus, I'm trying to tell you something here." Brittany said, giggling.
Santana ended the assault on Brittany's neck with a groan and faced her girlfriend.
"I love how you know when to give me a foot rub after a long day in the studio and I absolutely hate it when I have to say goodnight and I love you over the phone." Brittany said, looking deep into Santana's eyes.
"I guess what I'm trying to say is that maybe we could move in together?" Brittany said breaking their eye contact when she felt a blush creep onto her cheeks.
When Santana didn't say anything Brittany continued, "I wouldn't care where we live, you can move into my apartment or I can move here or maybe someplace with a pole installed?"
Santana was still silent and Brittany felt a little disappointed, maybe it was too soon after all. "Look, forget I said anything, if you're not ready I totally understand." Brittany said trying to hide the disappointment in her voice.
"Britt, shut up." Santana said chuckling.
Brittany tried to move away from the couch but Santana pulled her down on top of her and smiled at the pout forming in Brittany's lips. Brittany was avoiding her eyes so she cupped her face to gaze into the piercing blue eyes that she loves.
"Yes." Santana said and when Brittany looked confused Santana added, "Let's move in together but do you mind if you move here instead? I love your apartment and all but half of your stuff is already here and I hate packing."
Brittany squealed and attacked Santana's lips.
"You could set up a tent in Central Park and I'd still move in with you." Brittany said. Their lips met for another kiss and when they parted Santana reached out for her phone and looked for Quinn's number. Brittany watched her girlfriend with raised eyebrows wondering who Santana was calling.
"Fabgay, You have been living here for a year already and I need you to finally move your ugly bed out of this apartment. Britts and I are installing a pole in your room." Santana said, ending the call immediately, not waiting for Quinn's answer before pulling Brittany in for another kiss.
1 year later
Brittany stood outside The Peninsula in Beverly Hills patiently waiting for Miguel to pick her up. LA was the last stop of Lady Gaga's tour and she was going home to New York to Santana in two days' time. The last four months had been some of the best times of her life but the downside of touring is that she terribly missed Santana and the random weekends when Santana visited her in whatever city she was performing in were never enough.
The whole Lopez family except Santana came to watch the concert last night and Maria invited her to dinner with Mikaela tonight for a little girls' night out. Since Brittany did not have a car, Maria was adamant that Miguel pick her up and bring her to the restaurant since she won't have time to pick her up herself.
Brittany was broken out of her reverie when the smiling face of Christian peeked out of a black Camry.
"Hey there, ready for a wild night with the Lopez women?" Christian said, a mischievous smile playing on his lips.
"Hello Christian." Brittany said smiling at Santana's big brother.
Brittany slipped onto the backseat and smiled when she saw Miguel behind the wheel.
"Hello sweetheart." Miguel said returning Brittany's smile.
"Hi Miguel" Brittany greeted back.
"Given the circumstances maybe you should start calling him Da..." Christian started but was cut off by Miguel with a smack in the head.
"Don't mind him Brittany." Miguel said looking at Brittany in the rearview mirror.
"How's your father? Do they have plans to visit LA soon? I miss having a worthy opponent in golf." Miguel asked Brittany who chuckled at his statement.
"Dad is doing well and don't worry, I know he has been pestering Mom about moving here so he can golf more. He's using the fact that he has you as his doctor to make his point and I'm pretty sure he is slowly wearing Mom down." Brittany answered.
Miguel laughed and said, "I'm sure Maria will be thrilled if they ever decide to move here." Brittany nodded smiling. After her father's surgery they all went on a vacation together in LA where they met Santana's parents and the two families immediately hit it off. Miguel introduced Jack to golf and since then Brittany's father has been playing golf as much as he can, even flying to LA just to play with Miguel. Linda Pierce was at first intimidated by Maria's strong personality but eventually warmed up to her. She has even managed to get Linda involved in some of her charity work and Facebook, which amused Brittany and made Santana cringe. The two of them now stay as far away as possible from Facebook knowing that both of their mothers are online most of the time.
After a few more minutes of small talk they arrived at the restaurant and Brittany thanked Miguel and Christian for giving her a ride.
"Have fun honey." Miguel said smiling and Christian just gave her a wink and a thumbs up, which baffled Brittany.
Brittany entered the restaurant and was met by the Maitre d'.
"Reservation for Lopez." Brittany said to the smiling man who leafed through the reservation list.
"This way Madam." The man said leading Brittany inside the dining area.
They headed to one of the booths and Brittany's heart almost jumped out of her chest when she saw the person waiting at the booth.
"San!" Brittany said restraining herself from jumping onto Santana's lap.
Santana laughed at her girlfriend's reaction and waited for the Maitre d' to leave before kissing Brittany lightly on the lips not wanting to mess up both their lipsticks.
"What are you doing here?" Brittany said, her heart still hammering from the surprise.
"I can't wait two more days to be with you." Santana answered smiling at her girlfriend.
"Aww, I love you. I was actually thinking about going home to New York tonight after dinner." Brittany said.
Their waiter arrived to get their order and when he left Brittany took a sip of water and asked Santana, "When did you get here?"
"Just this afternoon and believe me it took all my strength not to barge into your hotel but I didn't want to ruin the surprise. Luckily my mom was annoying the hell out of me and the hours just flew by." Santana said grinning at Brittany.
"Let's ditch dinner then and go back to my hotel room." Brittany said, capturing Santana's earlobe and nipping at it lightly. God she missed her girlfriend.
"Britt! Come on babe we have plenty of time for that later, right now I want to have dinner with you and just talk. I missed you so much in New York and you know how I hate eating alone. I think the Chinese take out place is about to award me some of their market shares since that's all I've been eating since you left on tour, Santana said, squeezing her girlfriends hand.
"I'm not going on tour again." Brittany pouted, earning a chuckle from Santana.
Santana's expression turned serious when she saw that Brittany was actually considering not going on tour again.
"Hey Britt, you know I love you right? And I know how much you love performing and you know that I will always support you in whatever it is that makes you happy. These past few months made me realize just how much I love you and seeing you on that stage makes me happy. I know this is your calling, baby. You were born to dance and perform." Santana said.
Brittany reached out to Santana and gave her a mind blowing kiss, only stopping when their waiter arrived with the food.
"For the record the reason I want to stop touring is because I miss you a lot. After every performance I wished I could go to my hotel room and find you there waiting for me." Brittany said, smiling at Santana.
"Maybe next time I can go on a leave of absence to follow you around like a deranged fan or maybe I can be a roadie and earn some money." Santana said playfully.
"I'd take the deranged fan and I'd pay top dollar for you to follow me around." Brittany said winking at Santana, who laughed at her girlfriend's statement.
They started to eat, occasionally feeding each other food and enjoying each other's company.
After they ordered dessert, Brittany could tell that something was amiss, Santana was fidgety and was avoiding her eyes.
"Babe is something wrong?" Brittany asked placing her hand on top of Santana's to calm her down.
Santana gave her a nervous smile and said, "Everything's perfect."
The desserts they ordered arrived and Brittany started eating the cheesecake, letting out a satisfied moan when she tasted it.
"This tastes like heaven!" Brittany said holding up a piece for Santana to taste.
Santana just gave Brittany a small nervous smile while chewing the cheesecake.
Brittany put down her fork and looked at Santana with worried eyes.
"San, baby come on I know something's wrong. Are you breaking up with me?" Brittany said, not being able to hide the anxiety in her voice.
"What! Of course not Britt!" Santana said shocked that it crossed Brittany's mind.
"Then what is it Santana?" Brittany asked impatiently.
Santana gulped and looked at Brittany in the eye and said, "You're not going to let this go are you?"
Brittany shook her head and met her girlfriend's eyes.
Santana gave a nervous laugh and reached inside her purse saying, "I should have listened to my mother when she said that she'd help me with this."
Santana took out a black velvet box and Brittany's eyes widened.
Santana took Brittany's hand and smiled.
"Britt, I know that this relationship started as a charade but there is nothing more real in my life than what we have together." Santana said, her voice a bit shaky.
"And these past few months have made me realize how much I love you. I read a quote in a book I was reading one afternoon while I was in Central Park missing you. It said...Santana then reached for a piece of paper inside her purse.
"Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. We had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two." Santana read from the piece of paper she was holding.
Santana then looked at Brittany's eyes, which were damp at this point. Brushing away a stray tear she continued, "That's how I feel about you Britt, we have passion and God knows how I can't get enough of you but I think the best part of our relationship is when we just laugh in bed together or when we talk about our day. Even if we fight, I know that I'll always come home to you. I want a future with you Brittany, to be able to grow our roots together until we are one."
Santana opened the box to reveal a ring with a solitaire one-carat diamond set in white gold. "Brittany Susan Pierce, will you marry me?" Santana finally asked and this time she couldn't stop the tears from falling from her eyes.
Brittany laughed through her tears and cupped Santana's face before pulling her in for a kiss.
When they pulled apart Brittany simply said, "Yes." that made Santana chuckle and with shaky fingers, she finally slid the ring in Brittany's fingers.
Their lips met for another kiss and they were only broken out of their trance when they heard clapping. It seemed that the whole restaurant had gotten wind of what happened and they were cheering for them. They were too giddy to be embarrassed so Brittany held up her hand to show off her beautiful ring for everyone to see.
When the commotion died down, their waiter came to their table with a bottle of champagne on the house.
They toasted to the new chapter in their relationship and after sipping some of the champagne, Brittany leaned on Santana's shoulder and let out a contented sigh. She held up her hand for the 2nd time that night, admiring the ring.
"Oh I forgot to show you something." Santana said, suddenly remembering something.
Brittany sat up and looked at Santana with a smile on her face, "There's more?" Brittany said amused.
"There's an engraving inside the ring." Santana said.
Santana could see the reluctance in Brittany's face while taking off the ring and she laughed, "Don't worry I'm not taking it back. It's really tiny but I was adamant that they put it in." Santana said smiling.
Brittany held the ring and squinted her eyes to read the engraving and Santana used her cellphone as a flashlight to help Brittany.
Brittany grinned when she finally figured out what the engraving said; "so I love you because I know no other way"
"Baby wake up it's your Mom." Brittany said prodding a sleeping and very naked Santana who just grunted and buried her head further in the pillow.
"Come on San." Brittany whined, this time shaking Santana harder, holding the phone to her face.
Santana opened a bleary eye and was startled to see the smiling face of her mother in her phone.
"Jesus Britt." Santana said before taking the phone from Brittany's hand.
"Hello Mother." Santana croaked out.
"Well?" Maria asked her daughter.
"Well what?" Santana said baffled as to what her mother was talking about.
She heard her mother gave an impatient sigh before saying, "Did Brittany say yes?"
"Mom you could've asked her when she answered the phone!" Santana said sounding annoyed.
"Check your tone young lady and imagine how embarrassing it would be to ask her if it turns out that she said no or if you chickened out and didn't ask her to marry you?" Maria ranted.
"Thank you for the vote of confidence mother and I'll be sure to tell my fiancée to scratch your name off our Christmas list." Santana said with a small smile playing on her lips.
She heard a high-pitched squeal and couldn't help but laugh when she heard her mother shout to her father about the engagement.
She heard her father shout congratulations and by this time Santana was grinning from ear to ear.
"Now sweetheart I know you're as naked as the day you were born right now so why don't you put some clothes on and we'll all meet for lunch to celebrate." Maria said not able to contain the excitement in her voice.
"Mom!" Santana said clutching the covers to her bare chest suddenly feeling conscious.
"What? You just got engaged and you probably had sex with your fiancée all night. I remember when your Dad proposed.." Maria started saying.
Horrified, Santana cut her mother off before her ears started bleeding, "Mom, I don't want to hear about you and Daddy doing the nasty!" Santana protested.
"Fine, we'll meet you girls for lunch then. Be a sweetheart and put Brittany on the phone, I want to congratulate my future daughter-in-law." Maria said to her daughter.
Santana stood up, letting the covers fall to the bed, and sauntered over to Brittany, who was blow drying her hair.
She looped her arms around Brittany and started kissing her fiancée's neck. Brittany smiled and put down the blow dryer to face Santana.
"Good morning future wife." Santana said before capturing Brittany's lips. Santana almost forgot about Maria until she heard her mother's voice on the phone shouting at her trying to get their attention, "Santana Lopez! We are having lunch in an hour! You can have sex with your fiancée later"
Brittany pulled back and a blush immediately crept over her face when she heard Maria's voice.
"Oh yeah Mom wants to talk to you." Santana said with a smirk.
Brittany glared at Santana who just shrugged her shoulders and proceeded to the bathroom to take a shower.
A few minutes later Santana was in her bathrobe when she saw that Brittany was still on the phone. Brittany smiled when she saw Santana and placed a quick kiss on her cheek when Santana sat down next to her on the bed.
"Ok Mom, we'll see you in New York." Brittany said before hitting the end button and tossing the phone on the bed to give her full attention to Santana.
"That was my mother. I told them the good news and she said that they'll visit us in New York next month." Brittany said to Santana.
"What did she say?" Santana asked.
"She was excited and I think she's going to call your Mom." Brittany said while rummaging through her closet looking for something to wear for lunch with Santana's family.
She heard Santana groan and saw that Santana was lying down on the bed with her head propped up on her hand watching her.
"San come on! We're already late." Brittany said putting on a pair of skinny jeans and on oversized shirt.
"How about we don't show up and repeat last night's events?" Santana said, winking at Brittany.
Brittany plopped down next to Santana and gave her a peck on the lips but before she could pull back Santana had managed to put her arms around Brittany and soon they were in the middle of hot make out session.
"Maybe we can be half an hour late." Brittany said in between kisses.
Santana's bathrobe was becoming undone and Brittany's hands were already doing things to her fiancee's delicious breasts when they were both startled by Santana's phone suddenly vibrating on the bed.
They both groaned at the intrusion and Santana was annoyed when she saw that it was her sister. Brittany stood up and started straightening up her clothes and Santana knew that she wouldn't be getting any until after lunch.
"What do you want?" Santana said grumpily on the phone.
"Is that the way you greet your favorite sister?" Mikaela said, feigning hurt.
When Santana just grunted, Mikaela continued, "So I heard the good news from Mom! When's the wedding so I can put it in my planner since I will be doing your pre nuptial wedding pictures for 10% off?"
"You are doing our photos for free." Santana challenged her sister.
"My services are not for free Santana, I need to eat you know?" Mikaela said not backing down.
"You just had an exhibit and I bought you your first professional camera so you owe me." Santana said becoming annoyed.
"Which I will be forever thankful for but I need the cash and I know Mom and Dad are paying for the wedding so technically they will be paying me not you." Mikaela said trying to make a point to her sister.
"Of course not! Me and Britts already agreed last night that we will be paying for our own wedding." Santana said, this time she couldn't hide the irritation from her voice. The next thing she heard was her sister calling her mother.
Santana then shouted into the phone trying to get her sister's attention while she told her mother about their plan, "Mikaela! You're such a fucking tattletale! I'm not inviting you to our wedding!" Before Santana could think of other expletives to yell at her sister, the phone was snatched away by Brittany, who shooed Santana away.
Santana just rolled her eyes and went to the bathroom to brush her teeth. When she came back she heard Brittany say, "Don't worry I'll take care of Santana. See you in half an hour!"
"So?" Santana asked.
"Mikaela agreed to a 50% discount." Brittany said.
"Britt! You're too soft on these people, we could have gotten it for free!" Santana protested.
"Santana! They're your family and your sister is like famous now so getting a 50% discount is a big deal." Brittany said scolding Santana, who just scowled.
"Fine, as long as they stay out of our way during the wedding preparations." Santana said with a sigh.
"Oh yeah about that, Maria is also coming to New York with my mother, they're going to help us out since Maria said that we're rejecting their money." Brittany said preparing herself for Santana's temper.
"Brittany S. Pierce!" Santana said not believing what she just heard and she knew that her mother undoubtedly faked being hurt over to being able to pay for the wedding to get Brittany to agree.
"Aww come on babe, that will mean more time for us to actually enjoy our engagement and not be harassed about flowers and other stuff." Brittany said, pouting for effect.
"Fine but I swear to God Britt if my mom calls us in the middle of the night about china patterns I'm going to lose it. Just so you know, you could have totally threatened her about her future grandkids." Santana said in a resigned tone.
Brittany smiled when she heard Santana mention kids. "Don't worry babe, in exchange for this your parents are giving us a trip to Europe instead, for our honeymoon." Brittany said winking at Santana.
Santana laughed and pulled Brittany in for a hug, "And they said I'm the evil one." Santana said chuckling and Brittany couldn't help but join in.
After the laughter died down Brittany looked at Santana in the eye and said, "I love you Santana."
"I love you too." Santana answered smiling back at her future wife.
