Perfect - KJ Apa AU Imagine
Warning: AU,fluff & time jump
KJ couldn’t sleep that night,he hadn’t slept properly in 4 years ever since she left. Tonight was no different although he couldnt understand why. He tossed and turned thinking about her,remembering the familiarity he longed for. At a quarter to 5 he got up,got dressed and ate very little breakfast. KJ decided to go clear his thoughts at the beach. He spent the next 5 hours seated on the grainy sand feeling the cool water’s air blow, KJ reminiscent about how he use to take her here. They’d run down the shore and into the ocean forgetting about life and just focusing solidly on each other.
KJ couldn’t understand why she broke it off, how she just ended 3 years of commitment took her bags and left without a trace. It wasn’t until KJ noticed people beginning to fill up the beach that he realized it was fully morning.
KJ watched how lovers held hands and entered the waters,how families set up their chairs and towels on the sand,how people were glad to be with one another. He missed that feeling the feeling of being loved and in love.
Something caught KJ’s eye he focused on it a bit more and saw her. She was more beautiful than he remembered but she wasn’t alone. KJ’s eyes darted to the small child by her side holding her hand as the approached the water’s edge. His heart ached at the sight. She moved on and started a family. A family without him. He remembered the night he asked her to be his forever but she turned him down stating he had years to expand his talents and for them to settle down.
KJ got up from his spot on the sand and wiped the tears from his eyes. A strong wind blew and KJ saw Y/n’s hat flew away lucky for him the hat had landed right infront of him as if the faiths allowed. He picked up the hat meeting her in the middle as she jogged over to him “Than-” she stopped mid speech taking in who he was “KJ?” His heart broke even more hearing his name come off her lips “Hi Y/n” KJ smiled fakely at her as she mimicked his actions her son had walked over to her side “Mummy I’m hungry” he said looking up at her then to KJ. It wasn’t until then that KJ noticed the boy’s features dark hair,brown eyes and unmistakeable nose that only his father and him shared that he realized this boy was his. The boy looked at KJ for a long period of time “Hello” the boy waved “Hi” KJ lowered himself to the boy’s height “what’s your name?” KJ asked him sweetly the boy stood tall and said “Keneti” he told him KJ looked up at Y/n staring at her as she played with her fingers a nervous tick she had.
Then focused back at the boy “wow what a weird name ay?” He said, Keneti just looked at KJ “my mummy picked it,said it was a family name” he shrugged. KJ needed one final proof of evidence that this boy was his “how old are you Keneti?” He asked “4 and a bit” Keneti smiled.
KJ got up quickly from his spot “when were you going to tell me?” KJ was furious more than anything but also happy that he has a son “KJ.. I couldn’t” Y/n broke out feeling tears well up in her eyes. “And why not? I’m his father I think I had the right to know” KJ raised his voice a bit as his face heated “KJ you don’t understand you were becoming so popular. Riverdale was the main focus, I didn’t want to be the one to destroy your career plus we were so young we weren’t ready for a child” Y/n looked down at her hands “Y/n you know you wouldn’t have destroyed my career and us being too young is nonsense,we could’ve worked something out” KJ said calmly “I haven’t be able to function properly without you. Please come back to me and we’ll have a new beginning the three of us” KJ pleaded.
Y/n looked up at him then down at their son,he was a spitting image of his father “Mummy.. is this Daddy?” Keneti asked Y/n felt her heart warm up at Keneti calling KJ Daddy she was too overwhelmed to answer so she just nodded. Keneti smiled and hugged KJ’s legs “Daddy” he spoke. KJ leaned down to hug his son then picked him up to get a better look at him “Hey Buddy”
KJ noticed a few paps begin to line up and take photos of them “oh no” he muttered under his breath,KJ placed Keneti on his hips and held out his free hand for Y/n to take “let’s get out of here,settle down and figure something out” KJ informed her “sure” she beamed.
*year and a half later*
“Keneti no running in the house” Y/n demanded as the little brown haired boy ran around in his superman cape “Babe relax he’s fine” KJ smiled at her running his hands down her arms “he’s gonna wake up Cecilia” Y/n groaned as if on cue Cecilia began to cry “don’t worry I got it” KJ kissed Y/n’s head and made his way to the baby’s room.
KJ began soothing Cecilia as he took her into his arms,she quieted down snuggling into his touch.KJ changed her top “perfect” he beamed to himself, KJ made his way back to Y/n smiling as he went.
Keneti was seated on his mother’s lap having fully calmed down “Babe, Cecilia has something for you” KJ informed her “Babe you said you had it” Y/n rolled her eyes moving Keneti to the middle of the couch by himself. Y/n got up walking over to KJ & the baby she paused looking at Cecilia’s shirt ‘Mummy will you marry Daddy?’ in bold letters.
Y/n covered her mouth and looked up at KJ her eyes began welling up with tears “turn around” KJ smiled Y/n spun on her heels and saw Keneti holding a blue box with a beautiful princess cut diamond ring “what’d you say? do you want to continue this crazy adventure as husband and wife?” KJ blushed. Y/n took the box and kissed Keneti’s forehead thanking him as he giggled. Y/n was full on crying she didn’t even realize KJ placed Cecilia on the makeshift bed they had in the living room.
Y/n smiled and looked up at KJ “yes” she cried wrapping her arms around his neck and kissing him passionately as he held her waist kissing her back.
Keneti hugged them both causing Y/n and KJ to pull away and look at their son “Mummy you forgot to put it on” he reminded Y/n,KJ took the box and pulled out the ring placing it on her fourth finger “perfect” KJ smiled.
