Kristen's Proposal - Chapter Fifteen

The Kingdom of Winchester's court grows more and more each day, with new ladies and gentlemen coming to court.

Kristen's temper had settled down for such a long period of time that many of the people started to not fear her like they once did.

They all enjoy dancing and celebrating with balls and celebrations. Everyone, including Kristen, seemed happy.

A good friend of Kristen's pays her a visit. 
"It's been a while since the last time I got to see you" Lara tells Kristen. 
"I too have missed talking to you. I hope you decide to stay here at court for a while. I would love to catch up," Kristen tells Lara.

"I think that would be great! I think I will stay for a bit," Lara tells her.

Margret was unaware that Robert was the henchman of Kristen's. This took her off guard. Most people didn't know the identity of the henchman because of the hood that he wore. 
"Oh, I didn't know," Margret told him. 
"I hope this doesn't effect our relationship, I would still love to see you," Robert told Margret.

Robert changed into his regular clothes and met Margret in the kitchen. He gave her a big hug. 
"I have never been this happy before. I thought no one would accept me for who I was," Robert told Margret.

"Its a job that not many would like, but it changes nothing between us. You have a big heart," Margret replied.

Margret ran into Kristen and Lara chatting in the corridor. 
"Hello Margret. How are you and that handsome young fellow of yours,"? Kristen asked Margret. 
"Oh we are getting along fine. I really do like him!" Margret replied. 
"I think you two were meant together. You have my blessings," Kristen told Margret. 

Robert and Margret want to take their relationship to the next level.

Everyone took off running when the kitchen caught fire. 
"We need to put this out before the whole castle burns!" Screamed one of queen's ladies. 
After hard efforts they finally managed to get the fire out.

Paul ran into a past crush of his when he was a teen. 
"Oh I have not seen you in years." Paul said to Nancy. 
Nancy started joking with Paul, and started to flirt with him.

Margret headed to the kitchen to get something to eat and noticed Paul and a lady named Nancy, being really friendly with each other. They were so wrapped up with each other that they didn't even notice Margret in the room.

"Please don't be mad at me Kristen, its going around the court that Paul, and this lady named Nancy, could be in a relationship." Lara told Kristen.

"How do I put this?! I was in the kitchen this morning and ran into Paul." Margret began to tell Kristen. 
"And?" Kristen asked. 
"Well he was with a lady and they appeared more than friends. It seemed careless," Margret told her.

"You don't think I know what goes on in my court?! Well let me tell you, I have a few rules everyone knows. One of those rules is that no one is allowed to mess with my things, and no one is to cross me!" Kristen screams at Nancy.

"You treat him like a piece of meat. He's not even allowed love while you rule here!" Nancy huffed at Kristen. 
"I will deal with you later, Nancy!" Kristen yells.  

Then Kristen turns to face Paul. She balls her fists up in such anger that shes about ready to explode, but chokes a lot of it down to keep control. 
"So, this is what I get from you, I give you favor and anything you desire, and you go a flirt with her! You thought I wouldn't find out about this?!" Kristen screams at Paul. 

"Please calm down Kristen, I didn't realize you would be this upset. We haven't been together for a while. You and William have been spending so much time together that I figured you didn't care for me anymore." Paul pleads.

"Well you figured wrong. I trusted you and defended you when the others would mess with you. Now I think you are the one that started all this. So you don't love me anymore!" Kristen shouts at Paul.

"Well that's just fine, Paul! You leave my sight before I do something I will regret later! I will deal with you after I calm down. You better not leave if you know what's good for you!" Kristen yells.

To leave all the drama, and too cool down, Kristen goes to her chambers and her ladies help her undress.

A hot bath will help me relax. I will talk to William about this matter. Maybe he can help me decide what to do.

After her bath she asks William to come to her chambers. 
"I can't believe Paul would do that to me," Kristen tells William. "Well I don't like having to share you with him. I want you all to myself." William tells Kristen.

William tries to cuddle with Kristen, when she pulls away. 
"What's wrong Kristen?" William asks her. 
"I don't see why you are not on my side. You are my first and true love, William. I just thought you would agree with me." Kristen huffs.

"Why would I want to share with him? I can't stand the thought of him with you in that way. What if you was to get pregnant with his child? That would crush me, don't you realize that!?" William tells her.

"William, I can't have kids. I don't want to risk the chance of them being cursed with this awful thing. I don't think I can even have children," Kristen explains to him.

William scoops Kristen up and hugs her. 
"Oh William, I'm sorry for ever doing this to you. I will have only you as my love and will let Paul be free to love whomever he chooses," Kristen tells him. 

"So you will not punish him?" William asks Kristen. 
"No, I will let him be. I think I have scared him and Nancy bad enough. I will tell them later what I decided," Kristen tells him.

William throws Kristen on the bed and embraces her. 
"Let this be a new start for us," William whispers to Kristen.

William suddenly drops down to one knee. 
"William are you ok?" Kristen asks William in alarm.
"Oh, I'm fine," William tells her.

Then he pulled out a very pretty ring. 
"Kristen, will you marry me?" William asks Kristen. 
"Oh, William! Yes I will marry you!" Kristen squeals.

Kristen wraps her arms around William and kisses him. 
"This will be a new beginning. I can't wait to plan our wedding!" Kristen exclaims.

Castaway Chapter 11 - Megan And Brian's Baby Joy

Megan has grown into quite the lovely women. She's got a new husband and couldn't be more happy.

Megan still can't believe she's married. She's always looking at her ring that Brian gave her on their wedding day. 

With each new day, Brian always finds a way to make Megan happy.

"We are so lucky that Brian was left here. I thought it to be a tragedy but it's a blessing," Jasmin tells Kevin. They are thrilled their little girl, now a pretty young adult, has found love and now shares it with Brian.

Megan and Brian spend many nights together in love. They love to see the hearts on their bed covers. "How did I get so lucky to have you in my life?" Megan asked Brian. "No Megan, I'm the lucky one," Brian replied as he took Megan in his arms and pulled her close.

The next morning Megan and Brian got up early and straighten up the kitchen to prepare breakfast for everyone.

Later on that night Brian was trying to fish when his foot slipped,  and without any warning, he looses his balance and falls flat on his butt. The fishing pole goes flying over his head and lands on the ground behind him.

Kevin was there to see the whole thing and tried not to laugh too loud to embarrass Brian. So that same evening Kevin showed Brian some tips on fishing since he wasn't having any luck.

The guys were having a lot of fun in their conversation. So Megan decided to play a little bit of the knock down game they had so much fun in playing most of the time.

Megan threw the stick and it came crashing down on her head. With a loud thump she grabs her head and rubs the place where it hit. Ouch...Maybe I have had enough fun for the night.

One morning Brian wakes like always and notices that Megan is still asleep and decides not to disturb her. Brian thought that Megan may be coming down with a bug since she was tired more than usual.

Shortly after Brian headed out with her dad, Megan woke to a cramp in her stomach. She jumped up as fast as she could and ran to the bathroom.

She barely made it before she threw up in the commode. What's wrong with me, she thought. I must have ate something bad or I'm sick. I'll go ask my mother.

"I'm sure it's ok, are you late?" asks Jasmin. "No not yet, I just felt really sick today," Megan replied. "Well be careful unless you want a baby," Jasmin told Megan.

Megan looked down at her stomach and thought, there is no way that I'm pregnant. I don't feel like it. Megan starts to rub her stomach to see if anything had changed since now there was a possibility.

Megan really enjoys cooking and tests all the new stuff she makes. She can't seem to eat enough food lately. She sat down at the table to enjoy some oyster stew she made and then all the sudden she got hit with nausea.

So she quickly jumped up and ran to the bathroom and threw up again.

Megan found herself getting really sick on a regular basis and thought she would ask her mom about how she knew she was pregnant.

"Mom, I was curious about when you were pregnant with me. When did you know for sure?" Megan asked Jasmin. "Well, I was late and then the throwing up and tiredness set in. Then my belly gradually started to grow." Jasmin told her. "Why, do you think your with child"? Jasmin smiled and asked her.

"Well I kinda think so. I can't stop throwing up, I'm tired, and I'm late". Megan tells Jasmin.

Jasmin hugs her daughter. "I'm so happy for you Megan. I always wanted a grandchild, but didn't think it was ever going to happen." Jasmin tells Megan. "Don't tell your father or Brian until we know for sure."

Two months passed since she thought she may be with child and her belly started to grow. It wasn't long before her father and Brian took notice.

"Your going to be a grandfather." Megan told her dad and gave him a big hug. "I can't believe it. I'm going to be a grandfather. Oh I can't wait." Kevin told Megan.

When Brian gets home, Megan tells him that she's pregnant. "Really, are you sure?" Brian asks Megan while rubbing her stomach. "Yes you're going to be a daddy" Megan replied.

After each passing month, Megan's belly continued to grow. 

Jasmin rubs Megan's belly. "It won't be much longer and I'll have a grandchild" Jasmin tells Megan. "You're getting further along and I figure you have a month or so left," Jasmin tells her.

Megan, with little energy, still helped out around the house but could no longer go out with them. She started to get uncomfortable and have a little bit of pain. But thought little of it.

"I don't feel to well, I'm going to lay down for a little while." Megan told her family.  "If you need anything, Megan let me know." Jasmin told Megan.

She headed to her hut and climbed into bed. Maybe if I lay down for a little while it will ease this pain Megan thought.

The following day, Megan's pain eased up a little. It wasn't long before Megan was standing in a pool of water and pain shooting through her belly. Megan's water broke and she was now in labor. 

Jasmin took Megan to her room and planned to help her deliver the baby while the guys stayed outside.

After a whole day of labor and screams, Megan had her baby. "It's a girl!" Jasmin announces to Kevin and Brian who waited patiently outside.

Jasmin holds her new granddaughter. "Oh you're so precious." Jasmin coo's at her.

"So, what shall we name her?" asks Brian, "I was thinking Haley. I think it's perfect, I think shes going to be one special little girl." Brian tells Megan.

One big happy family.
