A/N – Well what can I say, the last chapter got a mixed reviews. This chapter is a lot longer and addresses some of the things brought up in your reviews. For the reviewer who said Brittany blackmailed Santana thanks for the comment I used it in the chapter. Let me know what you think. For those of you readers from here in the USA, Happy Thanksgiving!
Rachel sat at the dining room table speechless. She kept looking back and forth from Santana and then to Brittany in disbelief. She finally looked at Quinn who smiled at her and nodded her head yes. "Wow, if all I had to do was get married to make Rachel speechless I would have done it sooner." Santana teased trying to break the tension.
Rachel cleared her throat and regained her ability to speak. Lifting her wine glass she spoke. "Congratulations Santana and Brittany. I wish you a lifetime of happiness and good health." The four women clinked glasses.
"Thanks Rach. I know this came as a surprise to you and Quinn. We surprised ourselves at first but now I know it was the best decision I've ever made in my life. For once I didn't over think something and went with what my heart was telling me was the right decision." Santana took Brittany's hand and kissed it. Brittany looked at a Santana with tears in her eyes. She had been especially quiet during dinner which worried Santana.
"It seems as usual I'm the last to know since Quinn didn't act surprised with your marriage announcement." Rachel sulked.
"Sweetie, I only found out because I took lunch to Santana at work today and overheard a conversation she was having on the phone." Quinn explained.
Santana and Quinn explained to Rachel what had happened at Santana's office. Santana had told Brittany before dinner.
"Can I ask you two a question? Why didn't you want Rachel and me there when you got married? If Rachel asked me to marry her and we went to City Hall we would want you there with us." Quinn said with a bit of sadness in her voice.
"Wait if I asked you to marry me you would say yes?!" Rachel asked in an excited voice.
"Of course I would say yes I love you." Quinn leaned over and kissed Rachel on the lips.
"Congratulations you two are getting married! When do you think the wedding will be? I know it will be a huge wedding." Santana said.
"Oh, no you don't Lopez. You are trying to change the subject I want an answer to my question and I want it now." Quinn stated firmly.
Rachel sat there not sure what to say. "But Quinn what about you saying yes if I proposed."
"Sweetie let's talk about it later in private." Quinn once again kissed Rachel but this time the kiss was passionate and lasted longer. Santana scrunched up her nose in disgust. She was joking of course.
"So San, answer my question."
"Um, it was my fault you two weren't there when we got married." It was the first words Brittany had spoken since dinner started. "Santana wanted to have you there with us but I convinced her that it would be more romantic if it was just the two of us. However, that wasn't the real reason I didn't want you two there. I was afraid if you found out we were getting married that you would try to talk Santana out of going through with it. Quinn you told me how much I hurt Santana when we had our disagreement and didn't talk for a month. You also told me if I was going to continue to hurt her that I should disappear from her life all together. I know you said those things because you and Rachel wanted to protect Santana from being hurt again. I was afraid you two would think I would marry Santana only to end up hurting her again. I was being selfish and I was wrong to keep you from being with Santana on such an important day in her life."
Brittany looked at Santana for the first time since she started talking. Santana was staring at her wine glass that sat on the table. "San, I'm sorry I didn't tell you the truth. I know it's no way to start a marriage. I'm sure we can get the marriage annulled since I wasn't truthful with you. Keeping this from you has been eating me up inside. It's why I've been so distant the past few days. I'm so sorry." Brittany got up and walked out of the penthouse.
"San, we are sorry about making Brittany feel that way. We love you and were only trying to protect you from possibly being hurt again." Quinn's voice was full of regret.
"I can't believe you said those things to Brittany. Yes, she hurt me but that was between her and me. You had no right to threaten her like that. Look I understand wanting to protect me because I want to protect you too but there are boundaries and you crossed the line. I had no idea why Brittany was acting quiet and distant. I thought it was because she was worried how her parents would feel about her getting married without them being there. I know I was avoiding you because I felt guilty not telling you we got married and that I was worried you would feel hurt when you found out. This is all such a fucking mess. I've got to go talk to Britt." Santana got up from the table and left the penthouse.
Quinn and Rachel both looked at each other hoping Santana and Brittany could work things out. They knew they had broken the cardinal rule of friendship. Do not interfere in a friend's relationship.
Santana didn't even knock on Brittany's apartment door she used the key Brittany had given back to her a week earlier. The whole apartment was in darkness except a dim light shining from the bedroom. Santana smiled because she knew it was Brittany's Sponge Bob nightlight.
Santana quietly walked to Brittany's bedroom and stood in the doorway. Brittany was lying in bed curled up on her side cuddling with Lord Tubbington. The only sounds were LT purring and Brittany sniffling. Santana walked over and sat on the bed hoping to not scare Brittany but she had a feeling Brittany already knew she was there.
Santana kicked her shoes off and then laid down on her side so she was the big spoon and moved closer to Brittany. She kissed the back of Brittany's head. "You know what I was thinking. I'm not sure what your parent's work schedules are but I was thinking we could fly them out here for the weekend so they could see where you live and work. And we could have a special dinner with your parents and mine to celebrate our marriage. How does that sound?" Santana's voice had been soft and she spoke directly into Brittany's ear which caused Brittany to shiver.
Brittany sniffled. "It's clear I'm no expert on relationships but even I know you ignoring the fact I lied to you isn't healthy for our relationship."
"I'm not ignoring that you lied to me about why you didn't want Quinn and Rachel at our wedding. However, I'm not mad at you. I'm not happy that you lied to me and I want you to promise me you will never lie to me again. Quinn and Rachel were wrong to threaten you like that and they know it. I also know they were only trying to protect me but they crossed a line. I know my friends can be intimidating sometimes. I don't want to get our marriage annulled. Do you?"
"No, I don't I just thought you wouldn't feel that you could trust me after I lied to you and that you wouldn't want to be married to me anymore."
"Britt, I love you so much and I know you love me. We just need to work together to build a marriage that is based on trust, respect, support, and above all love. I know we got married without really talking much about it but that's just thing. I knew from the first time you made me blush with one of your sexual comments that you were the woman for me, my soul mate. I wouldn't change one detail that has happened between us since we've met because that's just who we are and all of that drama made me realize how much I love you."
Brittany turned to face Santana which made LT mad so he jumped off the bed and ran out of the room. "I felt the same way about from the first time I heard you whine in the ER about bleeding to death because of your little cut."
"Hey that was no little cut." Santana pouted. Santana leaned and kissed Brittany gently. "I want to make love to you."
Brittany didn't hesitate like the last time Santana said those words to her. "I want you to make love to me and I want to make love to you. I want us to make love together."
Santana smiled before leaning in and kissing Brittany with all of the love she felt for Brittany. The kiss was passionate and gentle at the same time. When they broke from the kiss Brittany got up from the bed and stood beside it. She reached out for Santana's hand and pulled her help her off the bed until they were standing face to face.
Brittany took her shirt off and Santana took her shirt off. Brittany reached behind Santana and took her bra off and let it drop to the floor. Santana did the same with Brittany's bra. Brittany unbuttoned her jeans, unzipped them, and pushed them down her legs so she could step out of them. Santana did the same with her jeans. Brittany looked directly into Santana's eyes as she reached she hooked her fingers in the band of Santana's panties and pulled them down. Santana stepped out of them and they laid there on the floor. Santana hooked her fingers in the band of Brittany's panties and pulled them. Brittany stepped out of them and they lay there on the floor beside Santana's.
"You are so beautiful." Santana said in raspy, sexy voice.
Santana took Brittany's hand and led over to the bed where Brittany knew instinctively what Santana wanted her to do so she lied down her back. Santana carefully got on top of Brittany not yet letting her full weight down on her. Santana looked deep into Brittany's eyes. "I never thought it was possible to love someone as much as I love you in this moment."
Santana kissed Brittany gently and first but then the kiss turned passionate with their tongues exploring each other's mouths. After several minutes of kissing and feeling the heat from each other's body, Santana moved to kiss Brittany's neck. Her kisses were deliberate and Brittany moaned with each one. Santana sucked deeply on Brittany's pulse point and left her mark.
Santana kissed down between Brittany's breasts while her left hand massaged Brittany's left breast. Brittany's moans were making Santana so aroused she thought she could have an orgasm any minute. Santana kissed and sucked on Brittany's right breast nipple while her hand continued to massage her left breast. Brittany arched her back as her arousal shot through her body.
Santana moved over to the left breast to kiss and suck on the nipple before Brittany cried out. "Please San, I need to feel you." It was a pleading cry so Santana kissed her way down Brittany's stomach feeling her muscles twitch with each kiss.
Brittany spread her legs wider so the core of Santana's body could put more pressure on Brittany's core. Santana found herself breathing heavily already. She moved down and kissed the insides of Brittany's thighs. Being that close to Brittany's core made Santana want to dive right in but she wasn't sure if for the first time making love it would be too much. "Britt, can I…" "Yes", Brittany screamed out even before Santana could finish her question.
Santana kissed Brittany's mound before running her tongue along Brittany's slit. Brittany arched her back and moaned loudly. Santana sucked on Brittany's swollen, throbbing clit. She could actually feel Brittany's clit pulsating in her mouth. "San, I'm so close already."
Santana sucked harder on Brittany's clit and seconds later Brittany had the biggest orgasm of her life and her juices followed in Santana's mouth. Santana continued to suck on Brittany's clit while she rode out her orgasm and started to come down from it.
Santana moved back up Brittany's body and gently kissed her lips, "I love you." She then moved off from Brittany's so she was lying beside her. Santana was trying to get her heavy breathing under control while she held Brittany in her arms. When Brittany had come down from her orgasm Santana noticed silent tears running down her face which made her panic thinking she might have done something wrong.
"Britt, why are you crying?" Santana kissed the tears away.
"It wasn't just..um…it wasn't just sex. It was so different than anything I've ever experienced. It was emotional. I could feel your love." Brittany said in an emotional voice.
"It wasn't just sex because we truly love one another. I always get aroused a little when I'm the one pleasuring a woman but with you I almost had an orgasm just touching you." Santana said still out of breath because her clit was throbbing.
Brittany turned to face Santana. "I want to show you how much I love you now."
"To be honest Britt it won't take much to put me over the edge because I am so aroused right now."
Brittany reached her hand down between Santana's legs and felt how wet Santana was and how swollen hard her clit was. When Brittany's hand touched her clit Santana jerked and moaned because it was so sensitive. "Please Britt touch me it won't take much." Brittany didn't hesitate she started rubbing Santana's clit in a circular motion. Santana moaned and sure enough it didn't take too long before Santana was having an explosive orgasm. After Santana came down from her orgasm they cuddled in silence for several minutes.
"I love you San." Brittany said as she kissed Santana's forehead.
"I love you too Britt."
The two women laid there in silence for a few minutes feeling more contentment than they ever had felt before in their lives.
"You know I could accuse of sexual blackmail." Santana said playfully as Brittany laid with her face snuggled close to Santana's neck.
"Me, sexual blackmail? Never, how dare you accuse me doing something so devious." Brittany pretended she was offended.
"You played the marriage card to get into my pants because you knew I was about ready to explode if we didn't have sex soon." Santana whispered in Brittany's ear.
"It's not my fault you never used your vibrator to take care of your sexual needs. I don't know why you even bought it if you weren't ever going to use it." Brittany teased.
"If I hadn't bought that vibrator and cut my finger trying to open it we might have never met." Santana said as she began to gently draw circles on Brittany's stomach.
"Oh, I think we were destined to meet vibrator or not." Brittany moved so she lying on top of Santana. "You're officially my Vibrator Virgin now but sometime in the near future I will be taking that virginity away."
Santana felt that all too familiar throbbing start between her legs that happened when Brittany teased her sexually with her words. "Um…tomorrow is a work day we need to get some sleep." Santana's voice squeaked out.
Brittany just smiled and snuggled into Santana's body.
The next morning Santana and Brittany were up early and decided they would go see if they could talk to Quinn and Rachel before everyone left for work. When they walked into the penthouse they found Quinn and Rachel sitting at the kitchen table eating breakfast.
When Quinn saw them walking towards the table hand in hand she immediately got up and gave Brittany a hug. "I'm so sorry for what I said to you that day. I hope we can get past this because I don't want to lose the friendship we had started building."
Brittany hugged Quinn back, "I forgive you. I know you were just protecting Santana. I shouldn't have kept you and Rachel for our wedding. I'm sorry too. I want us to continue to be friends."
Quinn then gave Santana a hug. Finally Rachel got up from the table and hugged Brittany. "I too am sorry for what happened that day. I am hoping that you and Lord Tubbington will enjoy your new home here with Quinn and me, and of course Santana."
"Lord Tubbington and I can't wait to move in here." Brittany said wondering if they should make some new house rule about Rachel not being able to sing to LT.
Santana poured herself and Brittany a cup of coffee as they sat down at the table. "We are planning on having a special dinner this weekend to tell our parents about our marriage. Britt has to call her parents and see if they will be able to fly to LA for a long weekend first."
"Say no more Santana, Quinn and I will make ourselves scarce so you can have the penthouse to yourselves. Brittany's parents can stay in the guest room." Rachel said with a smile.
"Actually we were hoping the two of you could join us for dinner." Brittany said with a smile that no one could say no to.
"We would love to there to celebrate your marriage." Quinn said smiling back at Brittany.
"Ok, now that is settled I need to get ready for work." Santana said as she got up from the table giving Brittany a kiss on the lips before heading to her bedroom.
As Santana walked away Brittany said, "That's my wife The Baby Maker."
Brittany's parents were able to take the following Monday and Tuesday off from work so they would be flying to LA on Saturday and return home to Rochester on Tuesday. They were stubborn saying they could pay for their plane tickets but Brittany held firm and told them she was paying for their tickets. Actually, Santana and she were paying for the tickets together but since Brittany's parents didn't know they were married yet Brittany said the tickets were her gift to them.
Brittany's parents had heard a lot about Santana but they weren't quite sure what type of relationship Brittany had with Santana. They weren't sure if they were just friends or something more involved but they were happy they were finally going to meet Santana so they will see for themselves what kind of relationship their daughter was in with Santana.
Brittany's parents arrived at LAX at 2 PM on Saturday. Santana and Brittany both thought it was best if Brittany went to the airport by herself to pick them up so they would have time alone together to catch up.
Santana wouldn't admit it to anyone but she was nervous as hell about meeting Brittany's parents and of course telling them they were married. Santana was nervous about her parent's reaction to the marriage too. Her parents met Brittany at dinner that one time and they seemed to really like her so she was hoping after the shock wore off about the marriage that her parents would be happy for them.
Santana would usually cook for the dinner but she was too nervous and was afraid she would mess it up so she decided to hire a catering service with servers. After all it was supposed to be a celebration.
Everyone would be there for dinner at 7 PM. Santana's parents were anxious to see her since they had been gone for past few weeks on a cruise and then in Hawaii for a week. It was helpful that Maribel was a travel agent and got such great discounts on the trips. Santana was hoping she could get her and Brittany a big discount for their honeymoon trip. They had decided they want to go to Hawaii. They weren't sure when they would be able to go on their honeymoon because their work schedules were so hectic but they would definitely find the time.
It was 4 o'clock by the time Brittany got back to the penthouse with her parents. Santana was there to greet them at the door.
"Mom, Dad this Santana. Santana this is my mother and father, Susan and David Pierce." Brittany was very formal with her introduction.
Santana reached out her hand to shake hands with Susan but instead was pulled into a hug. Santana wasn't surprised because Brittany was definitely a hugger and she had to learn it from someone. "Mrs. Pierce it's so nice to meet you." Santana said as the hug ended.
"Oh, please call me Susan sweetie."
Santana looked at Brittany's father wondering if he was a hugger too but was relieved just a bit when you stuck his hand out. "Nice to meet you Santana and call me David."
"It's nice to meet you too David." Santana said as the two shook hands.
Santana turned her attention to Brittany and smiled. "How was the trip to the airport?"
"It was ok. It was a good thing you put all of the information in my phone GPS because I would've totally gotten lost. Thank you." Santana was surprised when Brittany gave her a kiss on the lips and it wasn't just a quick peck because she lingered for a few seconds.
Brittany's parents smiled at one another because their suspicions were confirmed. Brittany and Santana are a couple. The Pierces were tired from their trip across the country and of course there was the time change so once they got settled in the guestroom they decided to take a nap before dinner.
"My parents love you." Brittany said as she snuggled up to Santana as they sat on the couch.
"They are amazing people Britt. I just hope they still feel the same way about me when they find out I married their daughter."
"I'm sure they will once the initial shock is over. After that if I know them they will start asking us when we will be giving them their first grandchild." Brittany teased.
Santana swallowed hard because having children right now was the furthest thing from her mind. "Um…I know we never talked about having kids. I w-want to have k-kids someday."
Brittany couldn't help but smile at how nervous Santana suddenly got at the mention of children and she thought it was the perfect time to tease Santana. "I can't believe the famous Baby Maker is nervous about having her own kids. Besides if I remember correctly the day I visited you at your office you said you would be honored to get me pregnant if I ever decided to have a baby."
Santana thought back she did remember saying something like that to Brittany. She had no idea what to say to Brittany so she decided to just give her beautiful wife a mind numbing kiss. After the kiss Brittany was speechless and Santana just grinned.
All too quickly for Santana and Brittany it was 7 o'clock. The carters were in the kitchen getting the food ready. The dining room table was set elegantly. There bottles of champagne chilling. Brittany's parents were in the guestroom getting ready for dinner. Quinn and Rachel were sitting on the couch waiting for the guests. Santana and Brittany were both close to hyperventilating they were so nervous. When doorman called on the intercom to let them know Santana's family was on their way up to the penthouse they knew there was no turning back now.
Santana opened the door revealing her entire family standing there. Maribel, Mario, Marco, Emily (Marco's wife), and Ethan (Marco and Emily's three year old son).
"My baby are you ok?" Maribel pulled Santana into a bone crushing hug. "You look pale and thin. Should you even be on your feet?"
"Mom, I had my surgery a month ago. I'm all recuperated. I'm fine." Santana insisted.
"I'm so sorry your father and I couldn't be here to take care of you after your surgery but we were on a cruise ship and there was no way to come home." Maribel put her hand on Santana's cheek as she spoke to her.
"Mom, it's really ok. Brittany, Quinn, and Rachel took good care of me."
"Are we going to spend the night out here in this drafty hallway or what?" Marco complained.
Santana moved to the side so everyone could enter the penthouse. "Auntie Sanny!" Ethan shouted when she saw Santana.
Santana picked him up. "Hey little man." Santana kissed his forehead.
"Santana you put him down right now! You shouldn't be lifting so soon after your surgery." Maribel scolded.
"Mom for the last time I'm all recuperated. The doctor told me to go back to my normal routine with NO restrictions. Dad will you please tell her I'm fine." Santana rolled her eyes.
"I don't think that will do any good to be honest sweetie. I think you look very pretty tonight." Mario hugged his daughter and Ethan giggled because he was stuck in the middle because Santana was still holding him.
Santana put Ethan down and greeted Marco and Emily. The Lopez family said hello to Quinn and Rachel. Now it was time to meet the Pierce family.
"Um…Mom and Dad, you've already met Brittany. Marco, Emily, and Ethan this is Brittany." They all shook hands.
Brittany kneeled down to say hi to Ethan. "Hi Ethan. I'm Brittany."
"I'm three years old and go to preschool. You are pretty like my mommy." Ethan had the Lopez charm.
"Thank you Ethan. You are a cutie." Brittany said before standing up.
Santana looked at Brittany and smiled at her interaction with Ethan. She had a feeling Brittany would be a natural when it came to kids. "Mom, Dad, Marco, Emily, and Ethan, this is Susan and David Pierce, Brittany's parents. Susan and David, this my mother Maribel, my father Mario, my brother Marco, his wife Emily, and their son Ethan." Everyone shook hands and Santana let out deep breath when the introductions were over.
"Dinner is ready so let's move into the dining room." Santana said to everyone.
"This table setting is beautiful Santana and a catered dinner with servers. It's almost like we are celebrating something." Maribel stated.
Santana suddenly felt uncomfortable as she sat down at the table but as soon as Brittany sat next to her she felt better. The servers started serving the first course. Maribel and Susan started up a conversation which made Santana and Brittany happy. It wasn't long after Mario and David started their own conversation.
Marco and Emily were busy trying to get Ethan to eat. The servers then served the main course. Brittany noticed Santana hadn't been eating very much so she leaned over and whispered in her ear. "We could always keep our marriage a secret for the rest of our lives but our families might get suspicious when have four kids."
Santana smiled at Brittany's comment but at the same she felt nervous. Four kids did Brittany really want to have four kids?!
"Brittany, I noticed Lord Tubbington's bed and toys are here even though I haven't seen him yet but I assume he is here too. I was just confused as to why his things are here instead of being your apartment." Susan looked at Brittany with a confused look.
Brittany looked at Santana and they both knew now was the time to make their announcement.
Santana took a drink of water. "My mom said earlier with the catered food and the fancy table setting it looks like we are celebrating something. Well, we are celebrating something. Last Wednesday Britt and I got married at City Hall." Santana looked at her parents for a reaction while Brittany did the same with her parents.
It was like everyone was in shocked because there was complete silence then…"Auntie Sanny can I have roll pease?" Thank God for Ethan.
"Of course you can sweetie. Santana passed the bowl with the rolls in to Ethan who was sitting beside her and he took one. "Thanks".
Santana looked at her mother again who had tears running down her face now. "Mom, please say something."
"I'm in shock but I'm happy for you. The night your father and I met Brittany when we came over for dinner we both knew she was someone very special to you. I'm just so happy you found someone you love. Of course I'm not happy that I didn't get to help plan a wedding." Maribel used her napkin to wipe away her tears.
Santana got up from the table and walked over to her mother who stood up and the two hugged.
Brittany's mother watched the interaction between Santana and Maribel and then looked at Brittany. She was sitting on the other side of Brittany so she leaned over and gave her a hug.
"As long as you are happy that's all that matters to me. I never dreamed we were coming to LA to celebrate our daughter's marriage. I have only known Santana a few hours but we have seen how happy you've been since moving to LA and we knew it was because of Santana. I'm assuming there was a problem about a month ago because there were a few weeks when you looked like a sad panda. I'm glad whatever it was you two worked it out."
Brittany gave her mother a huge hug. "Thank you Mom. What about you, Dad?"
"I feel the same way as your mother as long as you are happy that's all I care about and you are definitely happy." David got up and hugged his daughter.
Santana felt tears in eyes as she watched Brittany with her parents. She then turned to her father who was looking at her smiling. "Sweetie, you have my blessing and I'm so happy for you and Brittany."
"Santana, I just have one question. Is there any way we can talk the two of you into having a wedding so Susan and I can help plan it?" Maribel asked.
Santana looked at Brittany who just winked at her. "I think that can be arranged."
