Memories Can Go A Long Way (Extended Version)

Chapter Text

On Valentine's Day, Aubrey and Chad were out to dinner.

"I can't believe we're here at the exact same restaurant where we spent our first Valentine's Day together," Aubrey said.

"I know, right. Hard to believe this'll be our last one before we become parents," Chad mused.

"It's a shame that it's never going to be like this again," Aubrey said.

"Well, look on the bright side, with many of the Bellas living close by, we don't have to look far for a sitter if we ever need one," Chad said.

"Yeah. Stacie did tell me she was looking forward to Bella having a playmate," Aubrey remembered.

"Well, let's look into that. I think it's a wonderful idea for our son to have a childhood friend," Chad said.

"Hey, remember what happened on our first Valentine's Day together?" Aubrey asked.

"Aubrey, I'm home. You'll never guess what I got you..." Chad said, holding a bouquet of roses.

"(gasps) Awww, Chad, you got me roses?" Aubrey asked.

"Do you like them?" Chad said.

"They're so beautiful. This was so thoughtful of you. Thank you, Chad. And Happy Valentine's Day," Aubrey said.

"Same to you, Aubrey," Chad replied as the two shared a kiss.

"Whoever would've thought that it would end up being a Valentine's Day to remember," Chad said.

"Right?!" Aubrey asked.

"I will admit, at first I was hesitant to buy roses that day because some people are allergic. But then I thought, if that really was the case, you would've said something a while ago. So I knew I had to go for it," Chad said.

"And look what happened," Aubrey said.

"Right?!" Chad asked.

"I want to enjoy every moment of this while we can. It won't be like this next year after our son is born," Aubrey said.

"I know. But I also know that we're going to raise our soon to be born son to do wonderful things," Chad said.

"And I for one hope he'll be able to have a healthy friendly relationship with all the Bellas," Aubrey said.

"I don't doubt he will. When you introduced me to the Bellas that day at Cynthia-Rose and Denise's wedding, I saw how much they love you and how you've bonded with them," Chad said.

"Bonding with them was the hard part, but I'm glad we all got to where we are today," Aubrey said.

"And I'm proud of how far we've come," Chad said, proudly, as the two shared a kiss.
