Surprises can be amazing, even if they are scary

The two walked hand in hand, a small glimmer of purple shinning against the early morning light. Nobody was out yet, making the usually bustling Chicago quiet, still. It was calm, exactly what she needed. She glanced at the huge city around her. Skyscrapers towered up around her, blocking some of the sun that shined down brightly.

It was beautiful, but the city would soon be flooded with people all rushing to get to work and appointments, or just enjoying the city. She looked over at MC, seeing the peaceful look on his face. He looked calm, happy, beautiful. She would never get over how amazing and handsome he was, it baffled her, but she didn't linger on that thought long, for surely she'd start questioning how she was lucky enough to have him.

"I was thinking we could head to breakfast, whatcha think?" MC asks, pulling the girl from her thoughts.

"Yeah, that sounds great."

"Awesome."

The two head back to MC's car and drive through the quickly livening city. They pull up to a nice little restaurant and head in. It was quiet between them for a while, but it wasn't awkward or tense, it was nice.

"Dez... I was just curious.... have you ever thought about going home?" MC asks, a look of hesitancy in his blue eyes.

"Home?" Dezeray asks curiously, not truly understanding.

"Back to the west coast...."

"Oh.... I dunno MC." She says unsurely. "Why do you ask though?"

"I guess I'm just nervous that you'd miss it there and want to go back...."

"That place is full of bad memories MC, I'm not sure I'd want to."

"I know I shouldn't worry, but I do. I'm afraid to loose you."

"Oh MC." Dezeray says gently, grabbing his hands with her own, twining their fingers together. "I'd never leave you, and you know that."

"I know. I love you."

"I love you too." She gives MC's hands a gentle squeeze.


Eventually they made their drive back to Dezeray's house, where it was rather quiet, which is odd. She walked into the living room, but didn't make it far as she was tackled in a hug. She stumbled and almost fell, but quickly caught her balance.

"Dezzy!!!" Came a familiar voice that she hadn't heard in too long.

"Aurey?" Dezeray asks in disbelief.

"Oh my gosh! It's so good to see you!!! It's been so long!"

"Why are you here?"

"It's your birthday! I couldn't miss it!"

"Happy birthday Dezzy!" Zisteau says, coming into the room with Kurt close behind.

"Did-did you guys have her fly here?"

"Yeah, we thought it would be a good surprise." Kurt says with a smile.

"Awww thank you guys so much!" Dezeray hugs her dads tightly, before going back over to Aurey.

"Is this that boy you told me about?" Aurey asks curiously, eyeing MC.

"Yeah.... he is." She says quietly, her gaze briefly meeting MC's.

"If you dare hurt her, I will do.... I don't know what! But it'll be horrible!" Aurey says, giggling slightly.

MC puts his hands up in defeat. "I wouldn't dare hurt her."

"Good. Now Dez, we have soooo much to catch up on!"

"We do indeed."

"I can just go Dez, if that's what you want." MC says, looking torn.

"No... actually MC, I want you here."

"I'll stay then."

"How long are you gonna be here Aurey?"

"Only today sadly."

"Well, then we really have a lot to catch up on."

"Yes we do!" Aurey says cheerfully, though she could sense Dezeray had something serious she wanted to talk about.

"Lets head to my room."

The three head into her room and MC and Dezeray sit on the couch while Aurey sits in a chair adjacent to it.

"Aurey.... I want to tell you some stuff. You deserved to know this so much sooner."

"Dez, you don't have to, really."

"But you deserve to know."

"Dezeray. Are you sure it's wise to do this.... I'm not gonna stop you, but I don't want to see you depressed again." MC says, his blue eyes meeting her blue-green.

"I'll be ok MC, as long as your here." Dezeray replies, love filling her eyes as she leans in, her lips meeting his, a sweet kiss, the reassurance of his touch, all she'd ever need.

Aurey giggles. "You guys are so cute!"

Dezeray sends her a small smile, though it quickly fell to a thin line. "You knew my parents died and that I was in foster care, but that's all you really knew." She takes a deep breath. "I was depressed after my parents died and my first foster parents didn't help at all. They abused me. My next few families did too. Then I went to the Cook's house. They were also abusive. You know that week I wasn't at school?"

Aurey nods, her emerald green eyes full of shock already.

"My foster dad raped me and I tried to kill myself. I ended up in the hospital because of it. I came back to school and pretended like nothing happened. That year or so I was there and you were my friend, I was depressed, but I faked a smile and pushed through each day. Then I came here. I met this boy, Max, I thought he would be the one for me, but I was wrong." She pauses, giving MC a reassuring look. "He raped me and used me, just like my last foster dad. I... I tried to be ok after that, but I wasn't, and I tried killing myself again. All I had wanted was to be away from the pain. But my dads saved me. And I'm glad they did."

"Wow.... Dez.... I'm so sorry I didn't notice. I'm so, so sorry." Aurey says, tears brimming in her emerald green eyes.

"It's okay Aurey, that's all in the past and I'm happy now. I have MC and a great family."

"I'm glad you're happy now Dezzy."

"Yeah, me too. It's been too long since I've actually been able to say that."

"I got you something Dez, for your birthday." Aurey says, grabbing the bag from somewhere else in the room.

"You didn't have to Aurey."

"They gave this to me after they arrested your foster parents and I thought this would be a good time to give it to you." Aurey says, handing an old worn black leather sketchbook to Dezeray.

Dezeray takes the sketch book and just stares at it. "You-you actually found it.... I-I can't believe it...."

"Yeah, I thought you might like it back, since, you know, it's from your parents and all."

"Thank you Aurey." Dezeray says quietly, unable to tear her gaze from the drawings as she flipped through the pages.

"You guys wanna have cake and ice cream?" Zisteau asks from the doorway, breaking the silence of the peaceful moment.

"Yeah, that'd be great." Dezeray says, placing the old sketch book on her bed and heading out into the kitchen with her best friend and her boyfriend. They all ate cake and ice and sat around talking, laughing, enjoying each others presence.

"Dezeray. Kurt and I have a surprise for you." Zisteau says, handing Dezeray a big envelope.

"What is it?" She asks, eyeing the envelope curiously.

"Just open it, you'll see." Kurt encourages.

She gives them a questioning look, but opens the envelope anyway. There were two papers inside. She pulled one out, and looked at it questioningly.

"That is the letter from Amelia and the charity at the hospital. We gave them a five hundred dollar donation in your name."

"Wow... really?" Dezeray asks incredulously.

"Yes, now look at the other paper."

She pulls the other paper out and looks at it curiously. It was an official looking document of some sort with both Zisteau and Kurt's signatures.

"And that is the real surprise." Zisteau starts. "Those are the official adoption papers."

Adoption papers. The words sunk in and tears glistened in her eyes. "You.... you really want to adopt me?"

"Of course silly, you're our daughter, and we love you."

She hugs them both tightly. "I love you guys!"

"We love you too."

*sings* Dezeray has a family, Dezeray is happy, everything is good! I'm happy too. She saw Aurey again and she's being adopted by people who love her. Is this the end?

It would be so happy and peaceful. It's almost too much to hope that this is the end. But it would be a good ending. Maybe with an epilogue.

Good, that leaves plenty of time for you to ruin everything again. The universe isn't falling apart just yet. It's almost there, but North Korea isn't a representative democracy yet. That's the final event before reality collapses. This ending well is about 12th to last on a very long list.

You need to get to bed sooner. Of course, that's the most hypocritical statement of all time coming from me, but... school and the human bodies need for rest are annoying. SLEEP
