1 year later

It had been a year after the wedding . As promised, Stretch continued to love her, and she him. It was the second anniversary of the accident, and Shawn finally had the courage to go to her family's plot. Stretch came with her, to help her get through it if she needed it. Once they had found it, Shawn knelt down and focused on the grave in front of her. She read the inscription.

At the beginning

We were strangers, starting out a journey. Never dreaming, what we have to go through. Now here we are, and I'm suddenly standing, at the beginning with you

Shawn let out a shaky breath as she sat down. She had never thought in her 20 years of life that she'd be looking at her family's tombstones. She dropped her flowers; pink lily's with small clusters of lavender. It had always made her mother smile when she smelled the purple flowers sweet scent. Thinking of her mother hurt, but she could be happy at the same time. Love never truly left you. It could always be filled with something else, like the love she felt for Stretch and the rest of the ghosts.

No one told me, I was going to find you. Unexpected, what you did to my heart. When I lost hope, you where there to remind me. This is the start.

And life is a road and I want to keep going, love is a river I want to keep flowing. Life is a road now and forever-wonderful journey. I'll be there when the world stops turning, I'll be there when the storm is through. In the end I want to be standing at the beginning with you

There had been a reason that she had lived, through all the pain and heartache, and this was it. She had survived, and would continue to survive. With Stretch with her, anything was possible. Her parents would want, her sister too. She looked up at Stretch.

We were strangers, on a crazy adventure. Never dreaming how our dreams would come true. Now here we stand, unafraid of the future, at the beginning with you.

And life is a road and I want to keep going, love is a river I want to keep flowing. Life is a road now and forever-wonderful journey. I'll be there when the world stops turning, I'll be there when the storm is through. In the end I want to be standing at the beginning with you

I knew there was somebody somewhere, like me alone in the dark. Now I know that my dream will live on. I've been waiting so long. Nothing's gonna tear us apart

Taking her hand in his, he smiled at her and kissed her. She kissed him, as they rose into the air. In the last rays of day touched the sky, the two

of them flew home, two souls joined in an unbreakable bond, of ghost and human. The pain had finally been cured, by ones not of this earth. Pain, cured by ghosts.

And life is a road and I want to keep going, love is a river I want to keep flowing. Life is a road now and forever-wonderful journey. I'll be there when the world stops turning, I'll be there when the storm is through. In the end I want to be standing at the beginning with you. (2x)

Oh god, I'm gonna start crying! My first story that I've ever completed for Fanfiction. It's hard, typing these words, knowing for a long time that this would be the end. I absolutely love this song from Anastasia. It's a good ending song, so please, look it up if you get the chance. To all my readers, those who review and those that don't, thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement. Thank you especially, to the author, ( wonderful name), for their wonderful suggestions and comments. I love your stories and writing technique. Seeing as it's Christmas Eve, I wish everyone a merry Christmas, happy Hanukah/ Kwanza and New Year! Have a wonderful holiday and if you get a chance, look up some of my other stories and show them the same love you gave this story. Signing off for the last time, here's wishing everyone a merry Christmas from me, Rainlily216!
