“Alright here ya go. All the boxes are in the house, now you just have to unpack,” Aaron told me, dropping the keys into my hands. “Good luck.”
“Thanks for everything Aaron!” I called as he got into his car and drove away. I waved and then walked up and unlocked my new front door.
All of the sudden I was picked up bridal style.
“Thomas! What are you doing?” I shrieked as I heard his deep laugh.
“We’re moving into our new home so I have to carry my future wife across the threshold!”
You and Thomas had met two years after you moved to Spain. You had come back for the summer and had decided to move to Paris in the fall. You wanted to start as a world history major, so all of the traveling was good for you.
You two first meet here in the states, just briefly before you moved. Then you bumped into each other again in Paris.
You became friends, started dating, and then the two of you were engaged to be married in November after you return home.
Everything had gotten easier in your life. There was still some pain in your heart after leaving, but meeting Thomas had eased your heart.
Now the two of you were getting your new start. You were getting married in three months and you had never been happier.
“Excuse me is anyone here? I have an appointment with a tailor for a wedding dress?” you called into the seemingly empty stores.
“Yes just a minute!” you heard a voice call. Heavy footsteps came running down the stairs.
“Hello Hercules,” you said as you turned to him.
“Oh my gosh. You’re back,” he told you. He had a sad look on his face. “How are you?”
“I’m good. I’m great actually. How are you?” you asked him genuinely wanting know.
“I’m good. It’s really great to see you. I just want to say, before you stop me, that I’m really sorry about everything that happened. I know that we really hurt you. I guess I didn’t see it coming until it was too late. And then you were gone. Could you ever forgive me?”
He looked like he was going to cry. You felt like you were. You nodded.
“Of course Herc the Merc.” He laughed at the old nickname and wrapped you in a hug.
“Thank you so much Y/N. It means a lot. I’ve missed you. I know everyone else has too. Would you like to see them?”
You broke from the hug.
“Yeah that sounds… really nice. Can you get away?” you asked. He nodded and whipped out his phone and texted everyone.
“Alright let’s get you ready. Today we are tailoring… a wedding dress?” He exclaimed, fairly shocked. You blushed.
“Uh yes. I am getting married.”
“JEFFERSON! YOU’RE GETTING MARRIED TO JEFFERSON?” Alexander shouted. You flinched.
You told your entire story to Hercules as he was taking your measurements. He told you how Alexander and Thomas didn’t get along, so you were expecting this. You had all made up, hugs passed around, tears being shed.
“Yes Alexander I am. I don’t know why this is such a big deal to you,” you stated calmly. You accepted congratulations from John and the sisters.
Alex sat back down with a pout, grumbling a slight sorry.
“Congratulations Y/N. May I share some news as well?” Lafayette asked.
“Thank you Laf. And yes go right ahead,” you told him smiling. You didn’t have any feeling for him anymore, so you were hoping that he had moved on to someone who wasn’t Jo.
“Well since you announced your engagement, I’m going to announce mine. I asked Adrienne to marry me. She said yes,” He told you. Everyone started cheering and a huge grin broke out on your face.
You gave him a big hug.
“Congrats Laf! I’m so happy for you!”
Everyone passed around their congratulations and warm wishes. Alexander was still fuming in the corner, but Eliza got him to sit up at least.
Your heart felt warmer than ever. You had your friends back, even though there was still a bit of tension in the air, and a wonderful man to wake up next to for the rest of your life.
“I’m glad that you made up with everyone my sweet. Although I did meet that Alexander Hamilton guy. He isn’t my type,” Thomas told you. You laughed and kissed him on his check.
“Well don’t worry about him. Now what did James say about being your best man?” You asked him with a giant grin on your face.
“He said yes.”
You squealed. “Oh that’s so great! Dolley said yes to becoming my maid of honor as well!”
Thomas smiled and pulled you into a giant hug, giving you a warm kiss on the lips.
“I love you so much Thomas.”
“I love you too my angel. Always.”
“Forever and always,” you replied.
“Can we invite Hercules and the others to the wedding?”
Everything was going nicely. Hercules had tailored you a beautiful wedding dress and everyone decided that they would come to your wedding.
Eliza was forcing Alexander to show up.
When you were finally able to meet Adrienne she was one of the nicest people that you had ever meet. The two of you stayed up for hours talking, and she was also going to be one of your bridesmaids.
“Adrienne I have to confess to you that I was once in love with Laf, before I moved to Spain. I just thought that you should know, just in case this changes something about our friendship,” you told her as the two of you were having lunch together.
“I suspected. I know that Lafayette was once in love with you too. But I know that neither of you have feelings for the other anymore. I can see the way that you look at Thomas, like he’s the only one in the room. He looks at you the same way,” she told you, giving you one of her best smiles.
“Yeah. I can see that in the way that Lafayette looks at you.”
The two of you smiled, and continued chatting. After a while you left to go meet the boys in the park. You threw away all of your trash and walked out of the small coffee shop.
You started to cross the street, lost in your thoughts about everything that had just happened and will be happening.
You heard Adrienne scream.
“Y/N LOOK OUT!”
“Today we are here to honor the memory of Miss Y/N who was killed three days ago in a hit and run. We have two men here who would like to say something in her memory. Mr. Jefferson would you like to start?”
The entire audience was silent except for the soft sounds of crying. Thomas wiped his tears away and walked up to the podium.
“Y/N was the love of my life. I loved her more than anything in the entire world. We went through a lot of problems together, and I will never forget her, never move on. She was one of the nicest people and sacrificed a lot for others. But she was also one of the strongest. She went through a lot of stuff but she fought through it. She was my rock and I’m always going to love her. Always.”
Tears were falling even faster now.
“Y/N was my best friend. I hate to say that there was a time that we stopped being best friends, because I ended up pushing her to the side. I regret everything about that year, and I wish that I could go back and make it all better. Because if I didn’t push her away that year, maybe she wouldn’t have left and we wouldn’t be sitting here today. Y/N you will always be my best friend. Always.”
“Yeah, forever and always.”
