Chapter one True Love?
Reed and Shane love each other very much so it wasn't a big surprise when Reed proposed to Shane. Shane always thought it would be the other way around, but had been noticing lately that he was becoming more protective. Even though he still tripped quite often and Shane still caught him, Reed was taking the lead a lot more. In and out of bed, Shane would find himself waking up with his head on Reed's chest with Reed already awake. When Reed proposed, Alice (Shane's sister) was the first to know. She and her girlfriend, Jennifer, decided to take Shane out and party to celebrate. Little did they know it would turn to a disaster.
"Shane….. can I talk to you for a sec?" the small strawberry blonde asked.
"sure love. What's on your mind?" Asked the tall dancer, starting to get worried as the blonde started to fidget in his seat on the couch.
Reed stood up and started walking to Shane. His foot caught on the rug and he began to fall but was caught by Shane quite gracefully, who returned him to his feet with ease. Starting to get nervous, Reed blushed and backed up a little.
"Shane, I want you to know that you mean the world to me and that I love you more than I can express. I want you to know that I will always love you no matter what. Since I met you, seven years ago, I realize that I would hate to spend my life without you." Reed started still unsure. Shane still clueless, looked at Reed with his head cocked to the side in confusion. This encouraged Reed to continue. "I guess what I'm trying to say, is that since gay marriage is now legal here…." Reed got down on one knee and pulled the tiny box (that he had played with so much earlier) out with the ring in it. " Will you make me really happy and feel extremely fortunate by becoming my husband?" Reed quietly finished closing his eyes as he opened the box. Shane stared at the ring and then at Reed and then back at the ring.
"Yes! Yes! Yes! OH MY GOD YES!" Shane exclaimed as he picked Reed up and spun him around. When he put Reed down, Shane brought Reed into a very passionate kiss. When the kiss ended, Reed slide the ring onto Shane's finger and they both looked at it.
"Mr. Shane van Kamp?" Shane said with a grin. "I love it!"
"Me too!" Reed agreed and they shared another passion filled kiss. "We should probably call your sister," Reed pointed out.
"You're right. She would kill both of us if we didn't call right away," said Shane.
The two went into the kitchen and Shane grabbed the phone. He dialed his sister's number and put the phone on speaker.
"Hello bro!" came the response after three rings.
"Hey sis! Guess what!" Shane said practically bouncing off the walls with excitement.
"I don't know?" Alice sounded puzzled.
Reed was nudging Shane to tell her, but he just shook his head so Reed said, "I proposed to Shane! We're getting married!"
After that there was screaming and cheering on both ends.
"Shane, you are coming with Jen and I clubbing to celebrate! Tomorrow we'll pick you up at 8!" She sounded very happy.
