She will be loved

Chapter 15: coming to an end

A year had gone by and Ashley had finally graduated from Angel Grove High. She and Andros were reunited that same day, keeping his promise to her. Rosalyn had surprised Andros when she had greeted him with a few steps and shouting out 'Daddy'. Now a few months later after that, things were about to get even better.

(Angel Grove Park)

Andros held onto Ashley's hand as they walked through the park. "You seem quiet tonight," she commented. Andros let out a sigh.

"Ashley...you and I have been close right?" He asked.

"I certainly hope so," she replied.

He laughed slightly and he wrapped his arm around her shoulders. "Andros, is everything okay? You're acting strange," she commented. He let out a shaky sigh.

"Well, here goes nothing," he muttered.

Ashley watched as Andros stopped, dropped down on one knee, and held her hands in his. "Ashley Hammond...I love you more than anything in this world. You are my best friend and the of my life. Will you do me the honor of becoming my wife?" He asked. Ashley let out a small sob.

"Of course I will...yes..." she replied.

Andros stood up and he hugged her tight. "Yes," she repeated. Andros kissed her shoulder and he closed his eyes.

"I love you," he murmured.

"I love you too," she answered.

Andros pulled back slightly and he kissed her deeply. Ashley kissed him back, tangling her hands in his hair. This couldn't be any more perfect.

(Present Day)

'It couldn't get any more perfect than that moment, Andros had adopted Rosalyn and she officially became his daughter. Not that a piece of paper really mattered, Rosalyn was Andros's from the moment he saw her. He was mine the moment I saw him. Will I ever forget what happened between Carlos and me? Will I ever regret it? I can't say that I could, because if I regretted my time with Carlos, then I would regret having Rosalyn. I could never regret having Rosalyn because Rosalyn was the best thing that had ever happened to me just as much as Andros was the best thing that had ever happened to me..."

Ashley stopped writing and she looked out the window. She saw Andros sitting in the backyard with four and a half-year-old Rosalyn. She smiled as she went back to her diary.

'And I love them all so much. Goodbye Diary, Ashley Hammond-Karovan.'

She closed the diary and she put the lock on it again. She got up and went outside.

Rosalyn giggled when Andros tickled her nose with a flower. "Well aren't you two cute," Ashley commented. Rosalyn got up with a smile.

"MOMMY!" She shouted.

Ashley smiled as she picked Rosalyn up in mid run and she kissed her cheek. Andros smiled as he got up from the ground and he kissed her briefly. "Thank you," she murmured.

"For what?" He asked.

Ashley smiled as she pressed her forehead against his. "For everything," she replied. Andros smiled as he wrapped his arms around her.

"You're welcome," he answered.
