36. Epilogue

**Six Years Later**

The doorbell rang, “I’ll get it!” Harry yelled. He opened the door, “Hey mate!” he greeted his bestfriend, Louis and his girlfriend, Emily. “Come on in, the rest haven’t got here yet.” Louis closed the door behind Emily. “How are your parents?” Harry asked Louis. “Um, good I haven’t spoken to them much since we left for university. They already have a replacement.” Louis answered hesitantly. “Louis, are you still holding that grudge?” Casey asked, walking through the kitchen holding her and Harry’s two year old child, Annie. “Yes, I am. Do you know how much pain they brought to me and Liz?” Louis raised his voice. “Yes I do, I’m Liz’s best friend, and I remember all the pain and suffering she went through.” Casey responded, putting Annie on the couch in the living room.

Casey opened the door for some more guests, “Hey Zayn!” She said closing the door behind him. Annie turned towards her mummy and screamed, “Uncle Zayn!!” Annie ran towards him and wrapped her small arms around his legs. “Hello princess.” He responded swooping down and picked up the toddler, carrying her to the kitchen. “Hey Zayn” Greeted the others in the room. “Hey, I just got off the phone with Niall; he said that they might be a little late.” Harry said tucking his phone back into his front pocket. “Daddy, will Uncle Niall and Aunt Liz not come?” Annie asked with pouty eyes. “They’ll make it, baby. Don’t worry.” Harry pecked his daughter on the cheek.

“Mummy open the door! It’s Aunt Liz!” The child yelled. “I’m coming, baby. Calm down.” Casey assured. “Here come the love birds!” Casey joked, opening the door for her best friend and her fiancée. “Hah! Good one” Liz laughed. “Aunt Liz!” Annie screamed jumping up for Liz to catch her. “Annie, you are growing up too fast!” Liz spoke. Niall wrapped his arms around Liz’s waist and kissed her cheek. “Hey, you two! Now the party’s all here!” Liam said, while holding hands with his girlfriend, Mollie. “Hey, sis!” Louis said while squeezing Liz into his arms. “Lou, let go!” Liz laughed. “No, I love you too much!” He sassed. After a few more hugs and laughs Emily looked towards Liz, “Let me see the ring, I never saw it before. Louis tells me every day how beautiful it is.” Liz looked at Louis, who was blushing. “Aw, Louis!” Liz chimed. Liz flashed her left hand, “Oh my gosh, Niall!” Emily squealed. Niall squeezed her waist harder, “That’s what I’ll give for the person I love.”  Everyone in the room went in awe.

After the ten ate and Annie was put down for a nap in her room, they all gathered in the Styles’ living room. “Why were you late?” Louis asked looking at Liz. “We had to pick up Leah from kindergarten and drop her off at Dad’s.” She responded. Louis scoffed, “So after we move out and start our own lives, our parents drag us back there and want us to help out with their mistake, unbelievable.”  Liz looked down at her right hand and remembered the reason for the large scar on her wrist. Niall saw what she was looking at and grabbed her wrist and kissed it, “Never again.” He whispered into her ear. Liz smiled and pecked him on the lips. “When is the wedding?” Casey questioned. “On December 19th.” Niall replied.

“Remember when we watched movies every day after school?” Louis asked. “Yes, I think we still could have done that if we hadn’t gone to different universities.”  Liz responded, he laughed. The rest of the evening was spent by catching up with best friends and ‘remember when’s.

"Bye everyone, be safe.” Harry and Casey waved at their friends as they all went into their cars and drove off into the night. “Come on, Annie. Let’s go inside.” Harry instructed the little girl. “Okay Daddy.” Annie smiled.

 “That was fun.” Harry told his wife as he wrapped his hands around her and kissed Casey on the cheek. “You know, Annie’s asleep… So how about me ‘n you go ‘wrestle’.” He said seductively towards his wife. “Harry! One kid is enough, I don’t need another.” Casey argued. “Baby please, I just want one more! I would love to have a Harry Jr., can we just try one more time? I promise I will do anything in my power to help out as much as I can in the house and with the kids.” Harry begged. Casey made a loud sigh, “Alright, but only one more time. Understood?” Harry nodded and jerked Casey’s hand and ran upstairs.

“We’re finally home, babe.” Niall’s voice echoed throughout their apartment as her turned the lights on. “Thank God, I’m so tired.” Liz griped as she threw herself onto a couch. “Tired? This night has just begun! Me. You. Bed, now!” Niall said kissing Liz on the head. “Not tonight, Niall. I’m too tired. Maybe tomorrow.” She said closing her eyes. “There might not be a tomorrow! Let’s just make some memories of tonight, and maybe nine months later we’ll have a trophy for it too.” Niall spoke, sitting next to his fiancée. “Niall, I’m not kidding, I don’t have the strength or energy.” Liz said, opening one eye. “Well, then you can just lay there and take it, and I’ll do all the work.” Niall said raising an eyebrow. “Niall, if I say ‘yes’ will you shut up?” Liz asked, annoyed. “Yes! That is all I ask for!” Niall shouted excitedly. “Fine, we can ‘make memories’.” Liz caved in. Out of nowhere Niall’s arms scooped up and carried Liz into the bedroom.

**Four Months Later**

Liz’s head shot up from her pillow and she ran into the bathroom. Her head jolted to the toilet and vomited. Niall soon came in and held her hair. “It’ll be alright, we’ll get through this. It’s okay.” He repeated. Liz’s head threw back and her breath was heavy, “Why did I have to say ‘yes’ that night? This is all your fault!” Liz accused Niall. “Babe, you could have said no.” Niall laughed. Liz shoved him away and went towards the sink to wash her face. “I mean, where are we even going to put him, in the hallway?” She said with tears in her eyes. “Babe, we’ll just buy a bigger house with four bedrooms.” He answered. “Four bedrooms? How many kids do you want?” Liz asked, looking at the small bump on her stomach through the reflection of the mirror. Niall led her back into their bedroom and held her to his chest.  “Well one’s enough for right now, but you never know.” He smiled. “How are we even going to deal with one?” Liz cried. Niall lifted her chin and faced her toward him, kissing her on the forehead, “Baby, we’ll be alright. We will get through this one step at a time.”
