Santana stared out of the fogged passenger side window. She sipped on her hot chocolate that they grabbed from The Lima Bean on there way from the airport. She was absentmindedly twisting the ends of her scarf as she watched the brightly decorated houses pass by. Christmas lights and decorations were everywhere and snow covered the ground.
Santana felt her stomach twisting as the car came to a stop in front of a small white house. The outside was adorned with multicolored Christmas lights and a giant, inflatable Santa Clause. A Christmas tree could be seen in the front window and Santana could see people walking around inside.
Her stomach began doing flips as she looked over at Brittany in the driver's seat.
"Ready?" Brittany smiling brightly at her.
"No, I'm terrified!" Santana admitted staring out of the windshield at the house in front of her.
"Really?" Brittany said laughing, "You sing in front of thousands people on a daily basis and you are terrified of meeting my family?"
"Yes!" Santana nodding her head as she looked over at Brittany, "Take me to the airport, I can't do this! They are going to hate me!"
"No they aren't!" Brittany said reaching over and grabbing Santana's hand.
"Yes they are!" Santana whined, "I'm sure they've all heard some made up horror story about me and they already hate me!".
"San, they are going to love you!" Brittany said squeezing her hand.
"How do you know?" Santana asked, looking down at their hands.
"Because I love you!" Brittany said sweetly.
Santana felt the warmth of the blush that was spreading across her cheeks at Brittany's words.
"I love you too" Santana said softly as she looked longingly at Brittany.
Both girl's smiled as they leaned in and gently pressed their lips together.
"My baby is home!" cried an excited voice from outside the car, dragging both girl's out of their sentimental moment.
"And I'm home" Brittany said laughing as she pressed her forehead against Santana's, dragging out their alone time for just another second.
The driver side door flew open and Brittany was pulled away from Santana by a laughing and bouncing blonde woman.
"Hi mom!" Brittany said wrapping her arms around her mother and hugging her tightly.
"Oh my goodness, I've missed you so much!" Brittany's mom said excitedly.
"I've missed you too" Brittany said pulling away from the woman and turning around to see Santana climbing out of the passenger side of the car and shutting the door.
Brittany locked with eyes with Santana and she could see how nervous she was. Brittany held out an arm and motioned for Santana to come over. Santana smiled nervously as she walked over to Brittany and her mother. She relaxed a little when she felt Brittany's arm wrap around her waist.
Santana looked away from Brittany and was instantly met with a second pair of bright, blue eyes. Brittany obviously got her eyes and hair from her mother.
"And you must be Santana!" said excitedly as she pulled Santana into a tight hug.
Santana was hesitant at first, only because she had been taken by surprise but after a moment returned the embrace.
"Yes, it is very nice to meet you " Santana said after being released.
"Oh please, you're family!" Mrs. Pierce said as she beamed at Santana, "Please call me Susan!"
"Ok, Susan" Santana said as she smiled widely.
Susan took a step back and eyed Santana up and down, smiling the whole time.
"You are every bit as beautiful as Brittany said" Susan said, making Santana blush, "I swear you seem to be the only thing my Brittany talks about these days! 'Santana and I did this and Santana and I did that and Santana is so perfect' "
"Mom!" Brittany said, her face turning bright red.
"Well it's the truth!" Susan said pinching her daughter's cheek, "And I couldn't be happier for you sweetheart! Come on inside before we all catch a cold out here!"
Susan turned around quickly and both girls followed her into the house.
"Look who is here!" Susan excitedly as they all stepped inside and she closed the door behind them.
Cheers erupted through the house as everyone saw Brittany. Santana kept to herself, hiding behind Brittany. She watched as everyone came over and hugged Brittany, all of them so excited to see her. After a few minutes of talking and hugging everyone, Brittany looked back at Santana. She reached back and grabbed Santana's hand and pulled her forward.
They walked into the living room where everyone had gone to sit in front of the fireplace. Santana felt her heart pounding against her chest as she and Brittany stood in front of the Christmas tree before the small group of about ten people.
"Ok everyone, I'd like to introduce you all to someone very special to me" Brittany said smiling to everyone as she spoke, "This is my girlfriend, Santana! She is very important to me and I love her very much so please try to behave yourselves! I don't want anyone scaring her off!".
"Why do I get the feeling like that last bit was directed towards me?" said a Blonde boy sitting on the couch.
"Because it was!" Brittany said smiling at him.
"Oh come on, that was one time!" he whined.
"Ignore my bratty little cousin over there" Brittany said looking at Santana, "He can be a bit of a pest!"
"Britt could you come in here for a second?" Susan yelled from the kitchen.
"I'm coming!" Brittany yelled to her mother before turning and facing everyone, "I'm going to go help mom and I let all of you guys get to know Santana a little bit!".
Santana thought she was going pass out when she saw Brittany leave the room, leaving her to the mercy of the pierce family. Santana took a seat in a small chair by the tree. She could feel everyone's eyes on her as she smiled politely across the room.
"Are you famous?" The blonde boy asked staring at Santana.
"Uh..yeah" Santana said, "I guess so. What's your name?"
"Cody" The little boy chirped, "Do you know any other famous people?"
"Yeah, I know some other people" Santana said looking around the room nervously.
"Do you know Britney Spears?" Cody asked.
"I've met her a few times, yes" Santana said.
"Are you rich?" Cody asked.
Soon everyone, adults included were hitting Santana with question after question.
"Do you know Justin Bieber?"
"Is it true that you lip sync all of your shows?"
"Do you know Jay-Z?"
A small cough from the hallway caused everyone to turn their attention the a small girl entering the room. She was wearing footy pajamas with ducks on them and Santana couldn't help but notice the blonde hair and bright blue eyes. This was definitely Brittany's little sister. Everyone froze as the little girl slowly walked over to Santana and climbed up into her lap. Even she was surprised at the action considering Santana had never met the girl in person and only once over skype.
Brittany and Susan walked back into the room a moment later and Susan stopped when she saw her youngest daughter sitting on Santana's lap.
"Haley what are you doing up?" Susan asked, "You were supposed to be in bed, your sick".
"Everyone was being loud" The little girl whined, "and I wanted to see Sanny and britt-britt".
"Aww come here little duck" Brittany said walking over to Santana and taking the little girl into her arms.
"I've missed you britt" Haley said hugging tightly to her sister, "You've been gone for a long time".
"I know I have sweetie" Brittany said as a sad smile crossed her face, "But that's because I live with Santana in New York now".
"Are you and Sanny married?" The little girl asked.
Brittany blushed as she looked over at Santana who was smiling and looking down at the floor.
"No, we're not married" Brittany said laughing at a little at the question.
"You should marry sanny, I like her" Haley said smiling at her older sister.
"You do?" Brittany said smiling at Santana who was now blushing.
"Yeah, she's really pretty" Haley said looking at Santana.
"Not as pretty as you though" Santana said poking the little girl in her side, receiving a giggle in response.
"Haley, you should get back to bed" Susan said, "You don't want to be sick that whole time that Brittany and Santana are here do you?"
The little girl shook her head.
"Alright, let's get you back to bed little duck" Brittany said taking a step towards the hallway.
"I want Sanny to take me" Haley said reaching behind Brittany for Santana.
Brittany turned around and saw Santana smiling at the little girl.
"Can you tuck me in Sanny?" Haley asked as Brittany handed the little girl over to Santana.
"I would love too!" Santana said smiling at the little girl in her arms, "Just tell me where to go!"
"Are you sure you don't mind?" Brittany asked, looking at Santana.
"No, it's fine" Santana said smiling at brittany.
Brittany watched as Santana and Haley disappeared down the hallway.
Santana opened the door and entered the pink bedroom that belonged to Haley.
"Wow, your room is so pretty!" Santana said looking around the room at the unicorns and rainbows that adorned the walls.
"Brittany helped me decorate it!" The little girl said as Santana gently sat down on the edge of the bed and released the little girl from her grasp.
Haley quickly climbed up to the pillow and crawled under the covers.
"Sanny can I ask you something?" Haley said staring up at Santana.
"Sure" Santana said.
"Can I go back to New York with you and Brittany?"
Santana smiled at the question and nodded her head.
"Of course, I would love it if you came to New York with me and Britt" Santana said, "But I don't think your mom would be very happy about that".
The little girl's face visibly fell at the last part. Santana felt someone just punched her straight in the heart. This was worse then seeing Brittany sad.
"Oh" Haley said looking down, "I just really miss you and Brittany and you guys are always gone and i never get to see you. That makes me a sad little duck".
Santana wanted to cry seeing little Haley like this. Even though Santana hardly knew the girl, she was already falling in head over heels in love with the little girl.
"Do you and Brittany have any kids in New York? Is that why you guys are there all the time?" Haley asked.
"No, we don't have any kids, not yet anyways" Santana said laughing softly at the question as she imagined smaller versions of herself and and Brittany running around their condo in New York, "But if we ever do have kids, I hope they'll be as cool as you are!".
Haley smiled at the last part, making Santana feel a little better.
"Can I come visit you guys in New York at least?" Haley said looking at Santana.
"Of course you can!" Santana said, "You can come stay with me and Brittany any time you want!"
"Really?" Haley said sitting up in her bed.
"Yes" Santana said as she fished around in her pocket and pulled out her keys, pulling a single key off the ring.
"What's that?" Haley asked as Santana placed the key into the little girl's hand.
"This is your very own key to mine and Brittany's house so you can come visit anytime you want!" Santana said, "As long as you are with your mom!"
Haley jumped up and wrapped her arms tightly around Santana.
"Thank you Sanny!" Haley said, "Can we have a sleep over?!"
"Of course! We can do whatever you want when you come to New York!" Santana said.
The little girl released Santana and jumped off the bed and padded over to her dresser. She placed the key into a small jewelry box and then ran and jumped back into her bed.
"You need to go back to sleep now little duck, I want you feeling better so we can have fun the rest of the week" Santana said as she pulled the covers back over Haley, "besides, Santa won't come if you're still awake"
"Ok!" Haley said smiling at Santana, "Good night sanny, love you!"
"I love you too!" Santana said as she leaned down and kissed Haley's forehead.
"Goodnight Brittany!" Haley said staring at the doorway.
Santana turned around and saw Brittany leaning against the doorway and smiling at them.
"Good night little duck" Brittany said as she walked over and kissed her forehead.
Santana reached over and turned off the lamp beside the bed and she and Brittany left the room, shutting the door behind them. Brittany turned around to look at Santana and couldn't stop smiling.
"What made you so happy?" Santana said as she grabbed onto Brittany's hand and laced their fingers together.
"You" Brittany said leaning and kissing Santana's cheek, "What you just did in there was possibly the cutest thing I've ever seen".
"You were watching?" Santana said smiling in embarrassment.
"Yes I was" Brittany said, "And I'm glad I did because I fell even more in love with you if that's even possible"
Santana leaned and in and kissed Brittany.
"Come on, let's go for a walk" Brittany said tugging Santana down the hallway towards the front door.
Santana took a step back to admire her snowman. She looked over at Brittany's snowman, complete with twigs for arms and was even wearing Brittany's scarf. Then she looked at her own snowman, if you could call it that. He was leaning heavily to the right and one of his arms had already fallen off.
"You did great!" Brittany said turning her head to look at Santana's excuse for a snow man.
"Stop being nice, it's horrible!" Santana said laughing at her lopsided creation.
"Alright, I will admit that it's not the best looking snow man but then again I wasn't expecting much out of a so-cal girl" Brittany shrugging her shoulders.
"You're dead!" Santana said said reaching down and grabbing a handful of snow and rolling it between her hands.
Brittany turned and took off running as the snow ball came flying past her head, narrowly missing her.
"You're gonna have to do better than that Sanny!" Brittany yelled behind her as Santana grabbed another fist full of snow.
"Challenge accepted!" Santana said as she tossed the snow ball, hitting Brittany square in the back. Brittany stopped dead in her tracks as she felt the wet cold seeping through her jacket.
Santana took off running and Brittany quickly caught up to her, tackling her to the ground. Brittany pinned Santana to the ground and grabbed a handful of snow and stuffed it down the back of her jacket.
"COLD! COLD!" Santana shrieked as she struggled against Brittany.
"Say mercy!" Brittany said threatening to shove another pile of snow down the back again.
"Mercy!" Santana said.
Brittany laughed as she dropped the snow back onto the ground.
"Punk!" Santana said as she sat up and let the snow fall from the the bottom of her jacket.
"Can I ask you something?" Brittany said as she turned around to face Santana.
Yeah" Santana said brushing snow off of her shoulders.
"Did you mean what said when you were talking to Haley, about wanting kids someday?"
Santana froze and looked up at Brittany.
"Brittany, You know I love you" Santana said staring at her girlfriend, "Of course I want a family with you someday, when we are ready"
Brittany bit her lip to keep herself form smiling at the thought of having a family with Santana but it didn't do much. Brittany pushed herself up from the ground and held her hands out to pull Santana up.
"I was going to wait until tomorrow to do this but I can't wait any longer" Brittany said as she dug around in her pocket and pulled out a small black box.
"Britt..." Santana said eying the box with wide eyes.
Brittany grabbed Santana's hand got down on one knee.
"Oh my God" Santana said as tears instantly filled her eyes.
"Santana, I love you so much" Brittany said opening the box and revealing a large diamond ring, "I want to spend the rest of life with you and I want to have a family with you and I want to grow with you and be there to see all of the awesome things that you are going to in the future. Will you please make me the happiest person in the entire world and marry me?"
Tears were streaming down Santana's face as she nodded her head furiously, unable to speak. Brittany took the ring out of the box and slipped onto Santana's left hand.
Santana pulled Brittany up from the ground and launched herself onto her, kissing her passionately.
"I love you so much! Of course I will marry you!" Santana said before closing the gap between them once again.
Brittany wrapped her arms around Santana's waist and lifted her off the ground, spinning them around in circles.
"I love you so much San!" Brittany said putting her down and staring into her brown eyes. Now Santana was her's forever.
