Lucy's Question

Disclaimer: I do not own Pretty Little Liars or these characters. Lucy, Abby and Hunter are mine though. Not written for money, only enjoyment.

So I think this is going to be my last Jaria story for awhile. I do love them as a couple but I am running out of ideas. I hope you like this. I'm trying something different so.

Don't be afraid to review. Another big thanks to JasonAndAria-Jaria for all of your help.

Lucy DiLaurentis headed into her family's home with her tape recorder in hand, she had an assignment from her psychology professor to find a modern day fairytale. Growing up she had always thought that her parents had one, yeah they had fought but it would always end with a kiss and them telling each other they loved the other, they never favored one of their kids over the others and they always handled problems with their kids with open minds. To her it signified a modern day fairytale she just needed to know how it all started, it was something that they rarely talked about but never discouraged her, her sister Abby and their brother Hunter from asking just none of them ever had. Why did they need to know how their parents had met and fell in love?

Lucy walked into the kitchen as dinner was being finished, "Darn I missed dinner." She jokingly as she entered.Turning around surprised, "Lucy, you're home. Why are you home?" Aria DiLaurentis asked her daughter.

"That's a warm welcome, Mom." She said walking towards the woman, "I missed you too."

"You know that's not what I meant, it's just you usually don't come home weekends." Aria responded hugging her daughter.

"I know. I just like giving you a hard time." Lucy responded moving towards her younger siblings to sit down by them at the table. "Actually I came home to ask you and Dad something, where is he?" She asked as she sat down.

"I'm right here Lucy." Jason DiLaurentis said as he came up behind his oldest daughter and kissed her on the head, "What do you need to ask us?" He said moving to snuggle his wife.

Lucy, Abby and Hunter had all gotten use to their parents being affectionate, it was gross and cute at the same time.

"My psychology professor has us writing a paper over a modern day fairy tale and I would like to use you and Mom, but I don't know how you two got together or anything like that." Lucy told her parents.

"You want our history, essentially?" Aria asked their oldest daughter.

"Yeah. I brought home my tape recorder so you only have to tell it once." She said looking from one parent to the other, trying to read their faces.

Jason looked to Aria and back to Lucy, "I don't see why not, but why don't we move into the living room so we are all more comfortable." He said turning towards the living room.

"Wait." Abby said, "You're going to tell all three of us." She asked.

"Abby, you and Hunter are more than welcome to come hear the story. Your Dad and I have nothing to hide from you." Aria said following Jason.

Abby and Lucy jumped up but Hunter stayed sitting looking at the table. "Hunter, don't you want to hear how Mom and Dad met and fell in love?" Abby asked with hearts in her eyes, she had always been the romantic of the family.

"I don't know. I know they have never discouraged us from asking but it's kind of girly to want to know isn't it?" Hunter said to his two older sisters.

Lucy sat back down, "No. Hunter if anything it'll show us all why Mom and Dad are the way they are together." She said grabbing his hand, "Now come on, I want to hear this and I think you'll regret it if you don't."

Soon all three of Jason and Aria's kids were settled in the living room. Lucy and Abby had their legs over Aria's with their heads on her shoulders while Hunter was lounging on the love seat. Jason looked to Aria wondering how in the world to start this story. He wasn't thrilled to tell his kids about the drug and alcohol problems of his youth but he wasn't embarrassed by it either. Those problems had made him stronger and giving them up had brought him his beautiful wife and their three children. Aria just looked at her husband and gave him silent encouragement to tell their kids how they had met and fell in love. It was a story she was still replaying in her head till this day.

"Stop that!" Their three kids commanded.

"Come on, I don't really have all weekend to hear this story." Lucy said impatiently.

Her parents just looked at each other and her Dad started to tell how they had become the DiLaurentis family that they are.
