The Aftermath

Everyone around me was rushing to catch the time. I was almost putting on my green bride's maid's dress. My re-newly dyed blond hair was curled and my face was tinted with a bit of makeup. I was ran downstairs to where my father, brother, and so close into labor mother were impatiently waiting.

"Katelyn! Come on! We're going to be late!" My now-eleven year old brother whined. I ran faster down the stairs, hoping I wouldn't fall. Mason was rushing down with me, in his little black bow tie attached to his collar. I made it down the stairs and adjusted my cell phone on my heel strap.

"Jeeze, I'm ready, let's go!" I said, rushing out the door to my dad's new car.

My mother was breathing very heavily. I looked at her while my brother and dad were rushing into the car.

"Mum, are you okay?"

She shook her head. "I think the baby's coming." She said, huffing in and out. "OOH!"

"DAD! Mom needs help! We have to get to the hospital PRONTO!" I screamed to my dad. He looked up, I knew he was both scared, and worried. He'll be happy later on. I rushed my mother carefully into the wide middle-seat in the mini-van. My dad got her other arm and lead to more swiftly. Once she was all safe and strapped in, we rushed to the nearest hospital.

-Fifteen minutes later-

"Ma'am, my mother's in labor! We need doctor Satauri, PLEASE." I pleaded at the front desk while my mother was getting situated in a wheelchair, she wasn't in pain yet, though. She looked pretty calm.

"Yes, ma'am. I will call him up immediately. What is your mother's name and your last name?" She asked.

"My mother's maiden name is Cari Katherine Leverman. My name is Katelyn Carli Shai." I replied quickly, she typed something on her computer and then picked up the telephone by her desk.

"Yes, Dr. Satauri, there is an emergency with the Shai's. Yes. Yes, sir. Okay, thank you." She hung up and looked up at me through her round-rimmed glasses.

"He said you are to be right up." I ran to my mother and wheeled her into the closing elevator, sticking my tongue out at my brother and father.

"Now we're really going to be late." I murmured. Well, we were going to be late for the meeting sessions and mingling. They ceremony was going to be in about two hours or so. But I knew that labor doesn't pass for a few hours, sometimes a day or so. My ankle was vibrating with You Belong With Me. I smiled and bent down. I was still in my dress.

"Hello?" I tried to shush my heart, every time he calls it just goes bizzerk.

"Hey, where are you? I've been worried." Lucas asked, I could hear the relief in his voice.

I giggled. "Really, you have? I don't know if I'm not going to be there for the wedding, honey." I said, sighing, the elevator stopped on the fourth floor, Dr. Satauri's floor, I wheeled my gasping mother out the elevator door and into his office, turning left at a corridor.

"Oh, why not?" He asked. I heard a familiar laugh in the background. Bridgette.

"My mom's in labor with the baby and I don't want to leave her." I said. Dr. Satauri looked up from the paperwork he was working on.

"Oh. Come this way, please, Kate. Jake!" Dr called. We followed him into the giant double doors into the delivery wing of the hospital, I wheeled mom into a room that Dr. Satauri gestured at. Jake came rushing in.

"Yeah, uncle? Oh, hey Kate. Mrs. Shai. Haven't seen you guys in a while." he said, pulling me into a tight hug.

I laughed. "Yeah, hun, I missed you. We should hang out more." I smiled and pulled away.

"Okay, maybe you should get out of here, your mother told me she wanted to be alone during the birth." Dr. Satauri said.

I wore a confused look on my face. "Alone?" I asked, dumbfounded.

"Yes, she said to send her regrets to Charlotte and Carter." Doctor said. I nodded, and ran out.

"Bye Jake! Call me later!" I called back, trying not to trip over my dress as I got into the elevator again.

Lucas's POV:

"You may now kiss the bride." Charlotte and Carter kissed, and were now united as Mr. and Mrs. Carter Whitlock. Everyone went in a frenzy of clapping, cheering, and some people crying. Violet and Damien were sitting in front of me, happily chatting with Isis and Charlie, and I was stuck on the 'stage' with my dad and brother. Susan was the flower girl and I couldn't see Kate anywhere. She was to be a bride's maid. I sighed.

Then, the double doors of the church opened up, a tall, blond girl in a green dress rushed in from the back and to the front, at Charlotte's side as my dad and her broke the kiss and bowed to the crowd. Kate looked out of breath and was smoothing out the dress. I walked over to her, the whole crowd stopped their noise and watched as Kate and I stood in the middle as my new step-mom and my dad were backing away, smiling.

"Sorry, did I miss anything important?" She asked, chocolate brown eyes looking up at me. I put my hand up and stroked her cheek.

"Nope, nothing at all. I'm just glad you could make it." I said, leaning down closer to her face.

"Me, too. Me, too." She said, her lips on mine, moving gracefully. Everyone went into an even louder frenzy, with both Liam and Damien, even Charlie, shouting and screaming, and Bridgette, Isis, and Violet doing the same.

We broke away and I pressed my head close to hers. "I love you." I said softly.

"I love you, too." She whispered. "I'm sorry for keeping that away from you."

"It's okay, you always say that every time I say that I love you." I said, smirking, pink crept in her cheeks.

"I'm sorry." She said, and pressed her lips against mine again.

Author's Last Note:

I admit, most of this story was cheesy, but I was determined to go by the storyline. Well, I did add a lot of tryings and goings. But hey, we got to the end and we'll start again. I hoped that you guys liked the story and please reveiw it. Please, I miss my old reveiwers and I hope I haven't chased them away with a lot of the story, because I was trying to wing it one minute, then the next everything turns out ohkay. But, I like the last part of the last chapter, and I liked the epilogue the most. So, reveiw the chapters that you liked, and reveiw for this. I am going to write another story, but the next one's MINE, no music video, but some songs. Reveiw please and I'll miss you guys with the new set of reveiwers in my next story, but I hope that I'll see you on the other side of the door, knocking. But I'm not sure if I have a sequel for you, if you still want it. Sure, I love the characters and I want to write a story or one-shot for each of them to tell you how they are. And I will. Good-bye for now. I'll see you jumping over this departure with me if you wish to, but I'm leaving this set of characters and storyline for now, don't worry if you must. I'll be back.
