Hidden Messages, an Aaron Marquis x Reader Fic

Summary: Aaron is rather confused when you, his wife, tote a dry erase board everywhere you go on your anniversary vacation. Little does he know, that little white board holds some pretty big meaning. (Based on the prompt: Reader telling Aaron that she’s pregnant.)

“You just had to wear those cowboy boots, didn’t you?”  You push your way through the revolving doors of your apartment building’s lobby, and can practically feel your husband mocking you from behind. You laugh, “Honestly, Aaron, it’s not like you don’t own other shoes!”

“They’re comfortable!” He protests, running quickly past you to open the taxi door and squinting against the sun, juggling both of your suitcases at the same time. “Plus, you love them.”

After telling the driver your destination, you lean back in the seat and your head on Aaron’s shoulder. “I do. I just don’t see why you need to bring them on our tropical vacation.”

((So, iwashinosardine requested some more Corsola variants and I decided ‘what the hell, let’s do this!’  Thank you for approaching me, and don’t worry - I love Corsolas too <3  They were my first-ever shiny hunt, and one of my favorite second-gen Pokemon!))

Table Coral - At a scant two feet, Corsolas generally tend to stay comparatively small, but this is not the case for the Table Coral Corsola.  With Johto’s largest specimen being measured at more than twenty-three feet across and estimated to be over three hundred years old, these magnificent variants are as valuable for research as they are for collectors and trainers.

Sea Pen - These calm and creative variants are beloved by artists and get along very well with Smeargles.  Wild ones can often be found drawing in the sand when they’re not underwater, and although the generally lack the ability to do complex and precise designs, they are nevertheless very proud of their work and it is important to them that passers-by compliment them accordingly.

Cycloseris Disc - Available in a stunningly wide array of colors and color combinations, Cycloseris Disc Corsolas have enjoyed a recent explosion of popularity, with their brilliant visages becoming the most common features of scuba and snorkel tour posters and contest advertisements.  Extremely cheerful and easy to care for, these beauties may cost trainers a pretty penny, especially in their more brilliant colors, but there isn’t a trainer alive that owns one who says it isn’t worth it.

Bubble Coral - These soft-bodied and feisty Corsolas are a rare oddity - they lack dual Rock and Water typing, instead displaying only Water.  This can drastically shift their odds in battle, where Fighting-type moves are no longer super-effective and Grass-type ones no longer do quadruple damage.  Energetic battlers, though, are advised to remember that Bubble Coral variants are a persnickety set, and tend to warm up very slowly to their new trainers when traded.  It is advised that they be caught wild (to earn their respect) or hatched (to encourage imprinting).

Key West, Florida

These two images sum up my memories of the place perfectly! I just got back from a spontaneous trip to the Florida Keys. Booked and arranged everything on the day of my departure. I stayed a night in Miami Beach and then proceeded on to Key West after. Stayed at hostels in both places which was a first for me; won’t be the last as it was quite enjoyable! I went on two snorkeling tours and explored a bunch of State Parks. Spent my time biking around Key West taking in the sights and people watching and eating. Quite an enjoyable trip to say the least.

Do You, I Do Chapter Two

~Hi everyone! Gillian and I have decided that we will update every Friday. I hope you all enjoy this super long, super fluffy chapter before all the angsty stuff happens. ohmyjoshiferr and I hope you enjoy!~

“So do you think they’ll figure out where we are?”

They still lied in bed, their naked bodies covered in a mess of sheets and comforters as they admired the Hawaii sun pouring into the room. They had a couple of different places planned for their honeymoon but they both immediately agreed on Hawaii as there first.

“Probably not,” He yawned in response, “The media will probably be on your ass as soon as we get back but right now they’re probably setting you up with a new guy for the front cover of People magazine.”

“Ugh,” She groaned and buried her face in his chest, “I don’t want to go back. Let’s stay here forever.”

“Fine with me but we have other destinations to travel.”

She hummed against his skin. “Mmm. I can’t wait.”

“And we have to leave the room today,” Josh said. “We can’t stay in the room. There are so many things to do and we only have two more days here, baby.”

“Paddle boarding?” She asked curiously, slipping out from under the sheets.

“Paddle boarding.” Josh grinned. “And snorkeling. And a private tour of the inactive volcano.”

She blew a kiss to him before hopping into the shower. “You’re too good to me.”

Josh followed behind her. “Wait!” he said wrapping his arms around her waist. “Can I join you, Mrs. Hutcherson?”

“But of course, Mr. Hutcherson.” She imitated a fancy accent as she dragged him directly behind her into the shower.


“You suck at this!” Josh called from across the water. Jennifer scowled as she swam back over to her board.

“Shut up. I’m trying here.” She hopped back on and paddled over towards him.

“You’re a natural, Mr. Hutcherson.” The instructor said, flashing her big blue eyes, her cleavage blatantly obviously. Josh diverted his eyes, finding his wife who was fuming.

Jen gave a tight smile followed by a fake laugh. “Yes, he is but unfortunately Mrs.Hutcherson isn’t. I think I need a little help over here.” She only hoped the instructor caught on to her obvious jealousy.

Her whole body was on fire in anger. He wasn’t responding but he also wasn’t pushing her away. Just as she was about to mention something else about the wedding to drive her away, she stopped herself. No one is supposed to know about the wedding at all, she had already messed up enough. 

“I think you know who I am then,” Josh chuckled politely, “Again, thank you so much for this but I think we’re going to get going now.”

Jennifer fought back a smirk. “Yeah, it’s lunchtime. We should probably go out for lunch today since I kept you in the bedroom all of yesterday.”

Veronica rolled her eyes but politely said goodbye as well.


Jennifer silently walked back to their condo, Josh following her. “Jen,” he said, as she picked up her pace, no longer walking but jogging up the beach.

“Jen, come on talk to me.” He immediately followed after, trapping her with his arms. She tried to wiggle away at first but ended up just melting into him.

“She was all over you.” Jennifer said, keeping her eyes on the sandy floor.

“Believe me, I wasn’t too happy about it either. I came to spend time with my wife, remember?” The corners of her lips spread into a shy smile. “That’s my girl. Let’s go have lunch; I’m starving.”

But Jennifer didn’t move. “Can we go to the room first?” she asked, her smile growing wider.

“The place right down the street we can just eat in our bathing suits. It’s fine.”

She dragged her finger up and down Josh’s arm. “No, I mean for other things. Like a quickie.”

“Someone wants to take out their jealousy I see,” Josh smirked but she wasn’t exactly amused by the comment. Why does she need to be a reason to fuck her husband? “How about after lunch you can wear me out all you want.”


As they walked toward the small cafe, Josh looked over his shoulder and there was Veronica. And she winked at him.

It angered her now but she figured it wouldn’t really matter when she was fuckingher husband, in their bed, in their master suite.

“Are you okay?” Josh asked her later that night after again making love. “You’re quiet.”

“I’m fine, Joshy.” She placed a loving kiss on his lips once more before turning so he could spoon her. “Just thinking about how much I love you.” She almost laughed at herself for coming up with such a cheesy comment but it was true. She held left hand out in front of her admiring the sparkling ring that symbolized their love. She thought about how she’ll have to take it off when they get back but it only leads to a small pang in her heart. She didn’t want to think about that now. 

“Thinking about how much more I love you?” She laughed at his response.

She shook her head. “I love you more.”

“We’re definitely going to be that mushy couple in love that everyone hates.”

“You think so?” He nodded his head. “They’re going to be so sick of us because all I’m going to do is kiss you. All day, everyday.”

He began pecking at her collarbone and all of the freckles on her back, making obnoxious kissing noises at the same time.

“Josh, stop,” She giggled, squirming as his fingers tickled her stomach. She couldn’t stop laughing but he kept going. “Joshua!” Jennifer squealed as his lips begun to nibble on her earlobe. He stopped for a second, letting her catch her breath for a second before turning her back around to kiss her lips.

“Yes, my love? Did you need something?”

“Maybe an inhaler,” She laughed, still trying to calm herself and breath again, “You know how ticklish I am.”

“Exactly why I did it,” He smiled, “I’ll do anything to see you laugh.”

Her hand found his and gripped it to throw their hands up in the air. “There you have it, folks. The winner of the world’s cheesiest husband goes to the one and only Joshua Hutcherson.”

Josh laughed.  "Cheesiest husband huh?“

"Mhmm. You won by a landslide.”

He shook his head. “I love you,” he said with a goofy smile.

“I love you too,” She yawned, moving to cuddle with him once more. It only took minutes before they were both out cold.


“Be careful!” Josh said, grabbing her waist. “Don’t want you to fall.” They were on the tour of the inactive volcano and they were both scared out of their minds.

“Thanks, Hun,” She thanked him with a kiss on the cheek, “With my damn luck this will be the day the volcano will blow everyone to pieces.”

“I don’t think that’s how it works. Besides, your damn luck made you an Academy Award winning actress.”

Jennifer rolled her eyes. “Shut up. That happened because I’m such a great actress.”

“Speaking of,” He mentioned with a low voice, “I’m surprised no one has recognized us yet.”

She slipped his hand into his nonchalantly. “I’m sure there are about a million tweets about it right about now.”

He laughed. “You’re probably right. I wonder what tomorrow’s story will be." 

Jennifer leaned against him. "I’m tired.”

He held her there with an arm around her shoulders as they continued to walk on the tour. “I think we should make our last day here a lazy day. Some movies and Hawaiian take out. What do you say?”

“And making love in the bathtub?” She asked, eyes hopeful. 

“Sounds perfect to me.” He pecked her lips quickly, only hoping that no one was paying attention. They both knew speculations would start but that didn’t stop them from enjoying their rushed honeymoon before they would need to get back to work.


“Jen, our plane leaves in two hours. We don’t have time for a quickie.” Josh moaned as Jennifer moved her hand to his morning wood.

“Fine,” She pouted jokingly, “You can make it up to me later.”

“We can do it on the plane,” he promised.

“Joshy!” She gasped as she climbed out of bed to begin packing her things.


He slapped her behind. “I’m serious.”

Jennifer rolled her eyes. “Remember the last time you slapped my ass?” She asked, busying herself by throwing her clothes into her suitcase. 

“You mean whenever I get the chance?” He smirked earning a playful slap from her. “I’m just saying; you have a pretty nice ass, baby.”

Jennifer smirked. “So do you. It’s a wonder how you fit in those jeans.”

“But they look good, don’t they?”


“Your ass looks damn delectable in the jeans you’re wearing now.” She admired the tight fit of the jeans he had just squeezed on. It was a lovely sight to watch him put them on.


“Don’t be gross, Jennifer.”


“Ha, you sound like my mother,” She chuckled, easily zippering her suitcase up.

Josh shuddered. “Don’t compare me to your mother ever again. Before we left the reception, did you see your parents in the corner?” He asked, zipping his own suitcase.


“No but do I really want to know?”

“Your dad’s hands were where mine were when we got in the limo,” he said pulling his suitcase and Jennifer’s to the door.

She laughed and jokingly stuck her tongue out in disgust. “Gross.” Jennifer cringed. “That’s what our kids are going to say about us one day.”



Josh watched as their plane rose into the air, thousands and thousands of feet into the air. Jennifer snoozed against his shoulder, exhausted from their trust in the bathroom minutes earlier.

She looked so peaceful and innocent when she slept. He placed a stray piece of hair that had fallen, back behind her ear, trying his best not to wake her up. Josh wrapped an arm around her, yawning. He really wore her out. With a grin, he pulled her closer and drifted to sleep.




They were both woken up by the loud voice of their captain announcing that they had arrived at their destination: The Bahamas. She was surprised she hadn’t gotten a text from Liz telling them to calm down with the PDA yet. It would only be a matter of time.

"Josh,” she yawned. “Do you think that the media has gotten anything of us yet?" 

He threw on his baseball cap and sunglasses as she did the same. "We’ll check in the hotel. For now just play it platonic.”

“Play it platonic. That should be our new slogan.”

Josh shook his head. “You almost blew our cover when you announced we were thinking about couple colonics.” He grabbed her hand, Jennifer grabbed the carryon bags and they exited the plane. 

“Hey, platonic colonic was a good save.” She scoffed, trying to hide their entwined hands from everyone else. She didn’t want to let go but she was afraid she might have to. 

“Keep telling yourself that, Honey.”

Jennifer ignored his negativity. “What do you have planned for us here?”

“I was thinking some relaxation time on the beach for the first couple of days. I haven’t looked into the rest yet.”

“You got us a private beach house right?” She asked clinging to him as they walked through the crowd.

“Yes,” He responded, “I got Melissa to book it last minute for us. I figured it would be easier that way.”

“Good. Now we can make love in the sand,” Jennifer grinned. “Remember when we did that while filming in Hawaii?”

They swiftly walked through the airport, trying to get out without being noticed. Once they were finally outside, he responded. 

“Mhmm. I think that was one of my favorite memories from Hawaii.”

Jennifer smiled and licked her lips. “Mine too.”

“That and actually getting you to agree with it.” He smirked at the memory, remembering the day she kissed him without camera like it was yesterday.

Jennifer ducked her head as they exited the airport. “I was scared, you know. I love being with you and the idea about everyone knowing about us, scares me.”  A car pulled up the exact moment the stood on the curb. “I was afraid I would ruin everything the day I kissed you. I mean, I’m still scared but I always have my rock by my side.” She continued.

They both slipped into the car casually, releasing a sigh of relief as the door closed. Jennifer curled into Josh’s side as the June sun beat down onto their small taxi. Josh gave the driver the address for the house and they made their choppy drive through the chaos of the airport and to their beach house.


They arrived at the house and Jennifer’s jaw dropped at the view. It was almost directly on the beach, the balcony over looking the clear blue water and white sand. 

“How do you like it?” He asked hopeful, “I didn’t have much time to pick it but I liked it-” She immediately cut him off with a lingering kiss to his lips. 

“I love it. It’s perfect,” Jennifer breathed against his lips, her nose scrunching up as he rubbed it on hers for something of an Eskimo kiss. 

Josh turned away just briefly to tip the driver generously and thank him. 

With a quick call to Melissa, they found the keys to the house hidden in a plant nearby. Probably not the best idea but nothing had happened to the house in the mean time.

Inside, the interior was beautiful. Cherry wood floors, and unique antique furniture. “This is beautiful, Josh.”


He wrapped his arms around her from behind. “I’m happy you like it, because it’s ours.”

“And I will definitely enjoy every minute of it.” She crossed her arms over his, keeping him right behind her.

Josh noticed the gleam in her eye. “What are you thinking, Jen?” Her lips lifted into a sly smirk, her baby blue eyes darkening with lust.


“I was thinking about how we’re finally alone again.” She turned so her chest was pressed to his. “And I think this house needs some christening.” She drew invisible patterns on his chest where his tank top didn’t cover.

Josh’s body stiffened, eyes darkening. “Best idea you’ve ever had.”



The beach wasn’t always completely empty due to some neighbors relaxing as well but somehow they both felt at peace for once, without fear of something going wrong or someone exposing their secret.


“I would love to live on an island; away from everyone else. It’s so nice here.” Jen sighed, lying back onto her towel and throwing on her sunglasses.

Beside her, Josh nodded his head in agreement. “For once you’re right, baby.”

“Hey!” She scoffed jokingly, “For once? You better mean, ‘like almost every time’.”

“I love you, Jen but I’m right most of the time.” He said, laying back on his hands.

“It’s not my fault there’s some 100 year old wise man trapped in your body. I have a five year old with the brain of a peanut in mine.”

Josh just laughed. “You’re so right,” he said unable to control his chuckles. Jennifer grabbed a handful of sand and threw it in Josh’s direction, hitting him square in the face

“I said that to make you laugh, not to make you agree!” She bantered but laughed along at Josh trying to wipe all of the sand of his face, “This is where you’re supposed to tell me how beautiful and smart and witty I really am.”

“Shit, Jennifer, what was that for?”

She folded over in laughter again, quite proud at herself for managing to aim that well. Then a mound of sand hit her on the shoulder and she looked at Josh with her mouth agape.

“That’s it. Bring it on, Hutcherson.” She got up from her towel, already preparing with two hands full of sand.

Josh stood too, also grabbing a handful of sand, throwing it towards Jennifer. It hit her open mouth. She began to laugh but ended up choking on the sand that had gotten into her mouth. Josh rushed over to her aid.


“Are you okay?” Josh asked. Jennifer began laughing again and shoved a handful of sand down Josh’s swim shorts.

“You bitch!” She laughed even more, running towards the water. She looked back to see that he was only a couple feet behind her and soon enough she was lifted up into his arms.

Josh ended up slipping on a stray bush of seaweed that had washed up, sending the both of them tumbling on the sandy ground, Josh landing right on top of Jennifer.

“Well,” She snickered, “At least I know I’m not the only clutzy one.”

Josh chuckled but ignored her comment, taking advantage of her position underneath him. His fingers traveled to the edge of her bikini bottom, snapping it softly against her smooth skin.

“You know, I would’ve done the same to you but there’s barely anything here.”

Her cheeks darkened. “Josh,” she slapped his chest playfully.

“I’m just saying,” He continued, “If you’re trying to torture me in this thing; it’s definitely working.”

Jennifer lifted her head to meet his lips, both of them slanting together perfectly. His tongue explored the familiar space of her mouth as hers did the same. He pulled away for a quick second to comment something before leaning back in. “You taste like sand.”

Her lips linger against his, not really kissing anymore. “Who’s fault is that?” She whispered breathlessly.

Josh ground against her hips. “Mine. Do you think anyone is watching?”

She looked around only seeing some other people a couple house down. “I’m sure they won’t mind.”

“Good,” Josh said dropping his head down to kiss across her collarbone.

“Mm,” She hummed in pleasure, “I want to go swim.”

“Skinny dipping,” Josh whispered in her ear.

“Great idea,” Jennifer replied, leaning back in for one more kiss before leading Josh to the water with her. 

Little did either of them know that they were being watched. And that pictures of their tropical escapade would end up on People magazine days later.

A Look Below by 14thPhotography Under the water on Tumon Bay, Guam! Went out on a snorkel tour and got this little gem! The reefs on Guam are rather large and shallow so they tend to extend pretty far out into the ocean! On the right of the photo is the Hilton Hotel, and its iconic St. Probus Holy Chapel. Unfortunately the chapel is just out of frame, but you can see the mountain structure it is situated upon.
