Maxon Schreave (The Selection):
It's so hard when your father has unrealistic expectations of you and the girl you're in love with can help but break all the laws and be incredibly frustating.
Prince Kai (TLC):
I feel that. The girl of my dreams is a fugitive who just fled the country and is now considered an interplanetary terrorist.
That's rough buddy.
But wait, now she's decided to kidnap me from my own wedding and the whole world has descended into war.
*sweating* Oh, um, well... *turns to Dorian* how about you?
Dorian Havilliard (TOG):
The first girl I felt seriously about broke up with me and fell in love with my best friend. My father just beheaded my last girlfriend who I loved very much in front of my eyes and now he's forced me into servitude under the command of a magical collar that makes me forget my own name.
Oh well.. my father beat me before he died and I got to marry the girl of my dreams and live happily ever after.
“I still don’t understand why this baby was necessary. We’ve already done most of the kid and new-parent stuff with Katie. There really isn’t a single good storyline reason to have tied Amy down with a kid already.”
Could he feel it, too? Maxon broke the kiss and looked at me. “You’re so pretty when you are a mess.” I laughed nervously. “Thank you. For that and for the rain and for not giving up.” He ran his fingers along my cheek and nose and chin. “You’re worth it. I don’t think that you get that. You’re worth it to me”
“Are you sure this is a good idea?” Bri, your best friend, asked curiously while I was getting ready. “The guy or the whole going out part?” “Both.” “Can you relax. I’ve been dating him for a month now. There’s something special about him obviously.” “Yeah. He’s obviously special because he’s been around longer than a week. You always find excuses to not date that guy. This guy, what’s his name, Sammy? He’s the only guy you haven’t made up anything. He doesn’t have big ears? Kind of smells? He’s dirty? He has a weird laugh? Nothing??”
“Nothing.” I looked at her with a smile on my face. “Well I’m going now. See you when I get back?” “Damn straight you will. Don’t be out too late! We have errands to do tomorrow!” “BYE!” I yelled out to her as I walked out the house and into my car. I pulled up into the address Sammy wanted to meet me, “A coffee shop?” I parked, grabbed my stuff and walked inside. I beamed around the place till I saw Sammy. I started walking towards him and his eyes met mine, his smile was so big. He stood up and kissed my cheek, “Hey. I thought you were going to stand me up.” He chuckled. “How could I stand up such a handsome man.” I said. He pulled out my chair for me and pushed it back in when I sat down. He sat down across from me, “Sorry this is such a random place. I just thought we could sit down and talk. You know, get to know each other more.” “I’d like that.”
After hours of telling stories, laughing, and just talking at the coffee shop, he asked me a question. “How come I’ve never been to your place?” I bit the bottom of my lip, scared. “I just have some roommates, that’s all.” “Ah, the infamous Jen, Bri, and Kiera. When will I meet your best friends, huh?” “I’m pretty sure Bri and Jen would LOVE to meet you, Keira, I don’t know about her wanting to meet you. I don’t know if you would want to meet them.” “Come on, if you love them, I’ll love them.” I thought about it for a second, “It’s only 6:30? Maybe we can go for,” “YES!” Sam bolted up and collected all our stuff and walked me out to my car.
As I was driving to my place with Sammy in the passenger, I saw Sammy shaking his legs, wiping sweat off his hands and forehead, “I thought you wanted to meet them?” I kept turning my head from the road to his face. “Yeah, but when you said you don’t know if Keira would like to meet me, I’m a little worried now.” I grabbed his hand with my right hand, still driving with my left, “I was just kidding. She’s going to love you, I just know it. They all will.”
I pulled up into my drive way and got out the car. I unlocked the door and had him close it behind him. We walked through the little hallway and into the living room, as I put my stuff on the couch. “Y/N?” I heard a faint voice from upstairs. “Bri? Come here!” I yell loud. I heard her footsteps till she hit the bottom of the stairs. She walked towards me, looking at her phone, “How was your da-” She stopped as soon as she saw Sam. “Oh, you’re still on your date. I’m sorry.”
“He wanted to meet my roommates…” I lightly smiled at her. “Bri, this is Sammy. Sammy, this is my best friend, basically sister, Brianna.” Sam held his hand out to shake her hand, and she just glanced at it for a bit. “Wow, fancy. You shake hands.” She grabbed his hand and shook it. “And has a firm grip. I like you!” She playfully said, pointing at him. Then Jen entered the room, not paying attention. “I thought I heard Y/N’s voice. So, how was your date?” She asked, still not paying attention. I just stayed silent till she looked up. “Oh, you’re still on your date. I’m sorry.” I just face palmed myself and pulled her closer to me.
“He wanted to meet my roommates. Jen, this is Sammy. Sammy this is my other best friend, biological sister, Jenniffer.” “I didn’t know you had a sister..” He asked, sticking out his hand to her as she did the same thing as Bri did, glancing at it. “Do you girls not shake anyone’s hands or something?” “We don’t hang out with polite people. But this makes you polite. So I like you.” Jen said, shaking his hand. “Where’s your last roommate, Kiera?” He asked me. At that moment, the doorbell rang. “I’ll go get that. I’ll be right back.” I left them in the living room to answer the door.
“Hey.” I said opening up the door to Kevin. “So, next weekend again?” “Yeah. See you later Y/N. Bye Kiera.” Kiera just waved at Kevin.
“So, Y/N has a sister. I didn’t know that.” I told Jen. “Yeah…. She didn’t tell you?” “No, she doesn’t really talk about family. Where’s Kiera? Scared to meet her.” “She’s going to love you, I just know it.” Jen said, smiling. I heard a guy voice at the door. It was a few seconds till Y/N came back to the living room. “Who was the guy?” I jealously asked her. “That was Kevin, dropping off Kiera.” “Oh, where is she?” I asked looking for her. “You really want to meet her?” I nodded confused why she would be asking that. She walked back into the hallway and came back out. My eyes froze on Kiera. They walked up to me, “Kiera, this is Sammy. Sammy, this is my daughter, Kiera…..” I froze just staring down at a mini Y/N.
“Kiera, this is Sammy. Sammy, this is my daughter, Kiera…” I said lightly, scared of his reaction. He was just staring at Kiera for a good 5 minutes. “Sam? Say something…” He just looked up at me, “You have a kid?” He said under his breath. “We’ll leave you guys alone.” Bri said, trying to grab Kiera’s hand from mine. “No, she’s staying.” Bri and Jen left as I sat Sammy down on the couch and I sat on the table with Kiera on my lap. He just kept staring at her, like she was an alien.
“I had Kiera last year. That guy you heard was my ex-boyfriend, Kevin. We have joint custody of her. I accidentally got pregnant with her but don’t regret her one bit.” I held Keira tight in my arms. “Why didn’t you tell me?” Sammy finally spoke up. “I just- every time I tell a guy I had a daughter, they stopped wanting me. So, I thought that if I didn’t say it, I wouldn’t ruin the chance of dating…” “Y/N, I like you. A kid, your daughter, would not have made me go running for the hills. I love kids.” He said smiling at me. “Can I?” He held out his arms to grab Kiera. “Baby, this is Sammy. He just wants to hold you okay?” I told Keira who was cuddled up into my chest. I pulled her off of me and gave her to Sam, sitting her on his lap.
“Hi Kiera. I’m Sam.” He said tickling her. “I really like your name and your outfit. You look soooooo pretty!” He kept talking to her. I watched as Kiera started getting comfortable with Sam, not being shy anymore. “Hey Kiera, is it okay if I can go out with your mommy? I really like her. Is it okay if we all go on a family date? Would you like that? Huh?” He asked so sweetly, my heart melting. Hearing Kiera’s and Sammy’s little giggles in the air is warming up my heart. He looks up at me, looking at them. “Come on mommy, you look hungry. Let’s get something to eat.” All of a sudden Bri and Jen yell, “THERE’S FOOD IN HERE!” I just laugh as we made our way to the kitchen to eat dinner. Sammy fed Keira which shocked all of us. He then changed Keira’s diapers and clothes, “He feeds and changes? KEEEEEEPER.” Bri sang out. I just laughed and went back to Sam and a sleepy Keira. “Here, i’ll go rock her to sleep and put her in her crib.” “No, I’ll do it.” He insisted. I direction him to Keira’s room upstairs, as I follow.
I watch him gently rock her to sleep and put her in hr crib and just watched her for a little. I never thought i’d fall for a guy so deep, so early like this. We quietly left the room and went downstairs. Bri and Jen were at the bottom of the stairs, “AND HE VOLUNTEERS TO PUT HER TO SLEEP?! THAT’S IT. YOU ARE MARRYING THIS MAN. IF YOU AREN’T, I WILL.” Bri said. I start to turn red, embarrassed by them. “I’ll walk you out.” I pushed Sam to the front door. “Bye boyfriend!” They both yell. “NOT MY BOYFRIEND!” I open the door and closed it behind us. “Sorry about that.” I scratched the back of my neck. “No, I like them, all 3 of them.” He smiled at me. “Really? My daughter or my roommates didn’t scare you away?” He just laughed, “They are actually pulling me in. If it’s okay, I would like to come back and cook you girls dinner.” “Really?” “And also, if it’s okay with you, I would want to be your boyfriend.” I just smiled, and hugged him, burying my face in his chest. “I would love that.” I looked up at him and he smashed his lips against mines.
The door quickly opened behind me, “AWWWWWWEEEE.” Bri and Jen sang out. I parted from Sam, “Inside. Now.” “We were going to ask his number just in case we need a babysitter. And he wants to come and just cook us dinner one day? BITCH, I’LL MARRY YOU RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW!!!” Bri said. “Inside!!!” I push them in, closing the door on their faces. “So, tomorrow?” I laughed. “Tomorrow. i’ll come pick you and Keira up.” “Keira?” “Now that I know you have a daughter, every date includes her!” “Tomorrow.” “See you later, girlfriend.” I laughed and watched him get in his sister’s car.
