Author's Note: Sorry for the wait! I was working on my other story "A Story of Boy Meets Girl" and I've been toying with a couple one shot ideas. The new season (FINALLY!) has given me fresh inspiration and I'm very excited to write more BenxLeslie stories :) This chapter is a bit short but I thought it was still fun. Also, I just want to say thank you to everyone who has ever read or reviewed "Love, Laughter, and Everything In Between"! I have the best readers ever. Seriously, this story has gotten such a great response and it makes me incredibly happy and amazed. Thank you for all the support! Constructive criticism is appreciated but please no flames.

Chapter Thirty Five: Disgusting
"They're so gross," April complained, glaring at the lovey-dovey couple. She and Andy were eating pizza in the kitchen while Ben and Leslie were cuddling on the large sofa. No doubt they were watching some lame, nerdy, horrible television show…it was sickening to watch them. April was horribly tempted to grab her marshmallow shooter and pelt them with food but then she would have to find it in their messy bedroom.
"It's sweet," Andy countered. "C'mon babe, just look at how happy Ben is! Remember how he was before Leslie? All serious and scary? No one needed to get laid more than him."
"I'm going to throw up now," April said in a dead pan voice. The thought of Leslie and Ben in bed with each other was revolting on a level that she couldn't even begin to describe. She gagged slightly and dropped her piece of pizza in disgust.
"You can't fool me," Andy teased. "I know you're happy for them." Of course he was right, not that she would ever admit it. Leslie was a terrible person in a lot of ways (she smiled too much and what normal person was THAT happy?) but unfortunately she was a part of her life. April felt fiercely protective of Leslie and she would destroy anyone that messed with the perky blonde.
And Ben was like a weird uncle who was a lot of fun to torture.
So April would tolerate the corny pet names and adoring looks because as much as she tried to, she couldn't bring herself to hate them. They were just too damn happy with each other.
"I still don't want to see them," she grumbled. Andy laughed and kissed her lightly.
"Want to go have loud, crazy monkey sex and embarrass them?" He asked, wiggling his eyebrows, and April smirked.
"Oh god, yes."
How great is the new season of Parks and Recreation? Ah I missed it so much! Thanks for reading! Please review!
-SpunkyAR: I hate the thought of them in pain too but sometimes I just have to write angst. I liked the outcome, although it was a bit tough to write. I'm glad you liked the cute chapter too! I really hope that they bring up the costume at some point this season; I seriously think Leslie would find it sexy. Thanks for both reviews!
-June: To be honest, I didn't really think of a specific cause so I kept it intentionally vague. I guess it would be something like preterm birth or stillbirth. If I decide to write a series about this, I'll probably come up with a specific scenario. Thanks for reviewing!
