Epilogue: Family Is Who You Choose, Not Who You Are Dealt…
Three Years Later…
When I look back at everything that happened to me, parts are still unbelievable, but I would not change anything. After the curse was gone, Seto actually did not dump me. Instead, he asked me to move in with him. I was hesitant at first, the biggest of my worries were that he still did not know anything about my situation at home….
Eventually I did sit him down and explain everything. When I was finished, he got up and said he needed some time. Of course tried to run off again, I would have made it too, but if he cuffed to the stairs. So after two very long hours, he came back with my stuff and said rather abruptly that my guardian was taken care off. I stared at him and before I could talk he just said I would most likely never see him again….
So I ran into his arms, after he un-cuffed me of course, and I have not brought it up since. I was finally free and with the man of my dreams. A year later he proposed and we were married in the fall.
After the honey moon, we thought real hard about what we wanted to do with the rest of our lives. Seto, of course stayed with the company, but he works mostly from home now so we see each other more often. But the real question was me. What did I want to do?
Seto fought hard for me to live, even harder to give me something to live for, and I did not want to waste my gift. After some thought I realized what I wanted to do. When I walked into Seto's home office he smiled, my smile. "Puppy! So what is your choice? Do you want to go back to school?"
I decided to just come out and say it, that was the best way to get an honest reaction out of him. "Seto I want a child."
I closed my eyes, after all this time I was still afraid to see his reaction to things. But before I could worry, I was in his arms. "Joey, you have made me so happy." That is when my tears started to fall.
Two Weeks Later…
The lady seemed nice enough, she was kind and not judgmental as she brought us to where the children were. She told us to take our time, and that we could come find her if we made any connections. I was overwhelmed at first, there were so many children. I began to walk around when a lone child sitting by himself reading a book caught my eye.
After a quick look behind my shoulder, Seto gave me an encouraging smile and a wink. I smiled back, he was letting me do my thing. I began to walk over to the boy slowly clenching and unclenching my hands, my nerves were getting the better of me. As I got closer I could read the title of the novel he was reading, I recognized it from home. This made me slightly relax.
"Warm Bodies, you are the only other person I have met who read it. Everyone I know is still into Twilight these days." He looked up from the book and smiled.
"I like this better, Julie is not annoying like Bella." I sat down next to him, we had something in common.
"So why are you over here? You seem to be the only one who does not want to be noticed." He looked sad and frowned for a moment.
"People do not usually like me, I am not like other kids. I am a bit of a trouble maker, apparently, but I only try to keep bullies away from my younger brother." He hesitated for a moment, almost if he had said something bad.
"Who is your brother?" His gloom tripled when I asked this, but he set his book down and went to open the toy box that was next to him. He began pulling out a blue haired boy around five-years old.
"Jack are they gone yet?" Jack held the blue haired boy close.
"No Jesse they are not, one of them wants to meet you actually." The little one looked confused for a moment, but he was fine when Jack gave him a small nod.
After Jack set him down, Jesse came over to me and shook my hand. "My name is Jesse, I like crystals."
I gave him one of my grins that Seto loves. "My name is Joey, see that man standing over there?" I pointed Seto out and both boys looked at him. "He what I like." They both laughed.
Jack stopped laughing and he gave me a serious look. "Jesse, you should run over to him and introduce yourself."
Jesse looked back to his brother, as if asking permission. Once he got the nod he ran off. "You are not going to take him." Jack's tone was hard, but I could see the hurt and fear in his eyes. "You are all the same! You want to take him from me." His voice dropped to a whisper but still cracked. "He is all I have left."
When those words left his mouth I just gave him smile and pulled him into a hug. "Of course we are taking him." His eyes widened and I could see tears building in the corners. I quickly got down on my knees and placed my hands on his shoulders. "But I am not going anywhere without you!" I watched as the happiness replaced the sadness in his eyes and then the tears began to fall.
Jack was barely able to keep it together. "Thank You." He began to sniffle so I took him into my arms and we went to see how Seto was doing.
I let Seto deal with the paper work while I stayed with the kids. Jack was sitting next to me, his eyes red from crying, reading his book again. Jesse had just fallen asleep in my arms. When the door open Seto quietly came out when he noticed Jesse.
"You just need to sign some stuff Mr. Kaiba." Seto said with a smirk. Three years and he still loves to call me that. I handed him Jesse and filled out the paper work.
Before we knew it the boys were packed and we were in the limo heading home. "So now that we are a family what do we call you guys?" Jack asked failing to keep the smile from spreading across his face, despite his serious tone.
I just looked at Seto, then Jesse began to get excited. "I know! I know!" he pointed to me. "You are Daddy" and then he pointed to Seto "and you are Papa."
I just looked at Seto and then back to the boys. "That makes you guys are our sons."
"Who we love very much." Seto added looking back at them too. They both smiled with tears running down their faces.
I turned to Seto and held his face in my hands. "I love you Seto, thanks for not giving up on me."
He smiled my favorite smile, and gave me a quick kiss. "I love you too Puppy, thank you for not leaving me."
