Hi, so yesterday I was looking for some Baby Daddy fan-fictions and I couldn't find many, so I decided that I'll write one and maybe get the ball rolling and more could be written.
If you don't know what the show is about, it's about Ben Wheeler, a bartender who had a one night stand with Angela, who gets pregnant with their daughter Emma. Angela leaves Emma on his doorstep, and he decides to keep the child. The focus on the show is Ben, being a single father to Emma, he has help from his mom, Bonnie, Tucker, his roommate, Danny, who is Ben Brother, and Riley his friend, whom he knew since they were kids. The other focus is the love Triangle. Riley has been in love with Ben, and he later liked her and they started their on again-off again relationship. Danny has been in love with Riley since they were kids, Riley soon realized she loved him too, although she may be in love with Ben still. Now she has to decide who she wants to be with. Bonnie lives in the apartment building across from Ben, Tucker, and Danny. She's married to Brad, a realtor. She's currently a realtor, but has many calling. Tucker is a producer for The Mary Hart Show, and hopes to have his own show one day. Danny is a New York Ranger Hockey player. He and Ben also owns the bar Ben works at, "Bar on B". Riley lives in the apartment across from them and she's a lawyer.
You're pretty much caught up, but if you're interested in the show, it's on ABC family, new episodes are on Wednesday at 8:30/7:30.
The fan-fiction takes place after the season 4 finale "It's a Nice Day for a Wheeler Wedding" where Danny proposes to Riley, it takes off right where the finale ended.
Chapter 1: The Answer
I don't know what's happening. The last thing I knew was, Bonnie was about to marry Brad, when Ben was giving this speech about Danny and I. Then we kiss, and now he's kneeling on one knee proposing. I was totally off guard. I don't know what to do. Ben and I have a history of dating and I've been in love with him my whole life. But here we have Danny has been in love with me since I fell off my bike and sprained my ankle. We never dated, of course we tried to kiss many times, but we just had our first kiss a few seconds ago. I'm just stunned by everything that's happening, I never really thought how I felt about everything, nor considered anything. I don't want to marry Danny if it makes Ben uncomfortable, especially with our hectic past, but he seemed like he moved on, so I guess it would be okay. Then again, he could be leaving off more detail, and is saying what I want to hear.
I don't know what to do or think. It's been a couple of minutes of pure silence, everyone was staring at me for an answer, or at least a word. Nothing came out of my mouth.
"Riley, will you marry me?" Danny asked, again.
He took me out of my trance, I stared at him, then at Ben, and eventually everyone attending the wedding. I couldn't give Danny an answer, this was all too much for me. I just ran off the roof, I couldn't face anyone, and I just don't know what to do. I'm obviously not good with stress, nor pressure. I ran to my apartment, and locked the door. I know that this probably doesn't make me look good right now, but what else can I do, Danny just proposed to me. My best friend. We never even dated nor talked about it for that matter. I don't know where to begin. I don't know what to say. I want to say what he wants to hear, but I have a say, but I don't want to hurt him and make this awkward. I don't want to talk to anyone right now, I just need my space.
End of Riley POV
I just proposed to the love of my life, Riley Perrin. I knew she would be shocked, but not to the point where she ran off. I hope she's okay. I need to find her and talk. I know that I probably jumped the gun too fast, but I know that she's the one. I know that we deserve to end up together. I couldn't hold it in any longer, I thought it would be better to spill it out now, before something else got in our way. Or someone. I hope she says yes, but with her reaction I doubt it. But never say never. Right? I knew I needed to find her and talk to her about this. I ran off the roof, and went after her. I knew that she had to be in her apartment. I mean, where else would she go? I figured she would want to go somewhere that's private.
I approached her apartment and knocked on her door. "Riley, it's me. Can we talk?"
"Go away." She said.
"Please, let's talk, but first let me in."
"No, I don't want to talk to anyone."
"I'm not going to leave you alone, let's discuss what happened." I begged.
She finally opens her door. "Okay, fine. We never even dated, nor even talked about it. Look at earlier, we were barely friends, arguing about who should make the move. Then you just magically proposed. Why? So Ben can't have me, since you both love me? I know it's all of a sudden, but it doesn't seem right."
"No, Ben is cool with this, I know we never dated, but we know each other for so long, I know we would work so why not skip a few steps. And hey, I made a move every day of my life, and put myself out there. I proposed to you. That's a move. A big one actually. So if you're upset with my gesture, then don't bother giving me an answer." I said, leaving.
I couldn't deal with her right now, my mom was about to get married and I needed to be there to support her as her loving son that I am.
I went back to the roof, so the wedding could continue. I went back to my spot, which was behind Brad, since I was his best man.
"Where's Riley?" Ben whispered.
"She's in her apartment. We had a misunderstanding." I said. "But let's continue, she probably won't be coming."
Ben nodded his head and turned to Brad. "Okay, Do you, Brad, take Bonnie to be your wedded wife, to cherish in love and in friendship, in strength and in weakness, in success and in disappointment, to love her faithfully, today, tomorrow, and for as long as the two of you shall live?"
"I do." Brad smiles, looking into my mother eyes.
Ben then turned to my mom. "Okay, Do you, Bonnie, take Brad to be your wedded husband, to cherish in love and in friendship, in strength and in weakness, in success and in disappointment, to love him faithfully, today, tomorrow, and for as long as the two of you shall live?"
"I do." My mom smiles.
I couldn't believe it, my mom and Brad were about to be married. I was about to have another stepdad, since my dad married Steve.
"Bonnie and Brad, you have expressed your love to one another through the commitment and promises you have just made." Ben said. "It is with these in mind that I pronounce you husband and wife. You have kissed a thousand times, maybe more." Ben continued. But today the feeling is new. No longer simply partners and best friends, you have become husband and wife and can now seal the agreement with a kiss. Today, your kiss is a promise. You may kiss the bride." He declared.
My mom and Brad kissed very passionately for two minutes. It was so sweet and a little weird for a minute, but she's happy so that's all that matters, her happiness means the world to me.
"It is my great pleasure to present to you this newly united couple, Mr. and Mrs. Brad Wheeler. May we all continue to support and honor their union." Ben said, introducing them for the first time.
I was shocked that Brad took my mom last name, then again, I never really knew his last name, and now I don't have to.
My mom and Brad ran out the room, as everyone threw rice at them. It was a really great wedding, it would be even better if Riley and I didn't have that dispute. I know it was an enormous jump and a surprise, but I know we're meant to be, and I'm going to make sure that I get that ending.
End of Danny POV
I feel ashamed about mine and Danny disputation earlier. I know this wasn't about competing with Ben. I was just flustered because I made a complete fool at the wedding. I'm not mad at Danny, I'm angry with myself. I just wished I could tell him how I feel, but it's probably too late.
I couldn't face anyone right now, but I need to because I really need to talk to Danny and I think the best way is to do it at the reception in front of everyone. I need to give myself some time to prepare what I want to say.
End of Riley POV
I know Danny said that Riley wants to be alone, but she can't. I can't let whatever happened between and let it be the end. As everyone was leaving I decided to sneak away and go to Riley's, since the reception is at the B Street Hotel. That hotel has some crazy, yet creepy memories for me. I will never forget starting over with Riley while getting past "naked." And I get locked out of my hotel room. Ah, good times.
I finally reached Riley apartment, I knocked on her door a couple of times. It took her a few seconds, but she answers.
"Ben, what are you doing here?" Riley asked, clearly surprised to see me.
"I just want you to know that Danny didn't send me. I also wanted to make sure that you were okay?"
"I'm a little better, I don't know if Danny told you about our altercation."
"He didn't. What happened?" I asked, assuming it was about the proposal.
"Well, it's pretty much my fault. I thought that the only reason why he proposed to me was because he was competing with you and he wanted to win. He was obviously hurt by that assumption and told me to forget about the whole proposal."Riley explained.
I was shocked that Riley would think Danny and I would compete on who gets her. Yeah, we're both in love with her and both truly wants to be with her, but we wouldn't sink down to that level.
"Riley, Danny has probably told you this, but we would never do that to you, I moved on, or trying to at least. He really wants to be with you, trust me he said so. I think you both should be together and be happy." I said, I knew that if they end up together that it would be hard for me, but I knew how hard it was for Danny to see Riley and me, which he supported. Now it's my turn to do the same.
"I know, but I don't know if he'll talk to me now, since he's so angry." Riley said. "I want to talk to him, but I don't know if he'll care or listen to what I have to say."
"Come it's Danny, we're talking about. He would listen to you no matter how furious he is. One thing about Danny is that he forgets and gets over things quickly." I reminded Riley.
"Okay, I'll talk to him, just give me a few minutes, I'll meet you at the reception." Riley said.
"Okay, see you soon." I smiled, and left her apartment and went to the reception.
I really hope she's coming, because I want her and Danny to work out, which may sound weird coming from me, but it's true, I care more about my brother's happiness than my own.
End of Ben POV
Knowing that Ben is attempting to move just shows how far he's come as a person. He's changing for the better, and I respect that. It makes it a bit easier for me to talk to Danny. I feel prepared to talk to Danny, and I know what I'm going to say. I just hope he accepts and concur.
I check my hair and make up, making sure it looks flawless, so I don't make more of a fool of myself like I already have.
I called for a taxi and head to the B street hotel. I haven't been there since Ben attempt to get past "naked." It was awkward, especially since Angela was there trying to destroy mine and Ben relationship.
I got into the hotel, and head to where the reception is being held at.
I'm trying to find Danny, but this room is filled with many guests, and I never thought it would be challenging to find him since he's so huge.
I knew I wouldn't be able to find him in this crowd. So I decided to do plan B.
I went and grabbed a microphone.
"Attention please. I know I ran off earlier at the wedding, but Danny I need to talk to you." I said, Danny was walking towards me.
"Riley, what are you doing?" He whispered.
"Just listen." I said, before I continued my speech. "Look, I'm sorry for running off, but I didn't know what to say. I wasn't at all expecting a proposal, which was very sweet. Danny, when you asked me to marry you, I felt honored, that you think we're meant to be. I felt like Cinderella, but I didn't know if I was ready for my Prince Charming, and I thought that the best option for me to have some time to think and process was to run and be alone. I didn't know what I was going to say, nor how I was going to say it to you, but when Ben came to my apartment, and told me himself that he moved on, that he wants us to be together, I knew that it had to be a sign that we're meant to be. Danny, I'm ready. I'm ready to have my Prince Charming and my fairy tale ending."
Danny was smiling, clearly he loved my speech and apology, we started to kiss. This kiss right here, it was this kiss, that I knew we would last forever. I didn't feel weird, nor had second thoughts. I knew I found my prince and he was always right in front of me, hoping I would love him, and felt the same way. Now I know that I clearly do and always will. Of course starting a new relationship will always be awkward, but that awkwardness is always included. I know Ben said he has moved on, I have a hunch that he hasn't completely moved on, but would be willing to so Danny was happy. Either way I'm glad he's moving on, or trying too, he deserves someone that's great for him and an amazing role model for Emma.
End of Riley POV
I'm glad Riley is ready for her "Prince Charming" because I'm ready for my "Cinderella." You know, the one that got to go to the ball and had the night of her dream, then the prince realized she was the girl with the missing slipper and they got married. Not the one who was a maid, and has treated horribly by her stepmother and stepsisters. I know that sounds cliche, but what can I say, I'm a hopeless romantic, which I know a lot of girls really want and love.
"Okay, well let me ask you properly. Riley, I've been in love with you since I carried you home when you fell off your bike and sprained your ankle. You've been my best friend forever, I'm ready to be more than friends, I'm ready to be Soulmates. Will you marry me Riley, I want to be your Prince Charming, so you can be my Cinderella."
"Daniel Mellencamp Wheeler, I never knew you were in love with me since I got that voicemail, you accidentally sent me one year ago, but since then I have come to realize that I'm in love with you. Now that we're finally on the same page, I am here to say that yes, I will marry you." Riley smiles.
We started to hug and kiss, like my mom and Brad did. I guess that's how you know what love is and what it looks like. I can't believe I'm going to marry my best friend, and not just figuratively, but literally. She's been my friend forever and to marry her, I'm the luckiest guy in the world. Yes, I know it's another cliche, and cliche may be overplayed, some to this day are still romantic and girls still love hearing them. I know we skipped a step. Dating. But we know enough to know each other as friends, that it doesn't really matter. It's our life and we'll live it how we please.
Everyone was clapping, and cheering. There were some tears, like from my mom, and Tucker.
"Yes, I'm slowly, but surely getting my food and apartment back." Tucker screams. "Oh, but congratulations you two. Riley, I know I make fun of you sometimes, but I'm serious when I say this, you're going to be a beautiful bride."
"Awe, thanks Tucker." Riley smiles. I placed my nana ring on her left ring finger, since it's a traditional heirloom. "It's your nana ring."
"Yeah, eventually if you want your own, I'll give you one, but this was an unexpected and I don't know what you want or like." I admitted.
"Hey hey hey, any ring you give me, I'm going to love. As long as it symbolizes love, I don't care." She smiles, which lights up the room, when she's with me she's the only girl in the room, besides my mom and Emma.
"Awe, I can't believe my baby is getting married." My mom screams, "I'm glad you're getting your happy ending Danny. Welcome to the family, Riley. Well, you were always a part of this family, but let's make it official." She smiles.
I look around and I see Ben, who's holding Emma, he looks a little heart broken. I know he's in the process of moving on, and I know that this may be a little hard for him. It's a part of moving on, and that's how you know you're trying to get over someone. At least he's trying.
End of Danny POV
I know I should be happy for my brother and Riley, I am don't get me wrong, but it's now official that she'll never be mine, and now I see it.
"I guess Riley will be your aunt and not your mommy." I whisper to Emma, who's currently in my arms.
Moving on is not going to be easy.
End of Ben POV
I hope you liked the first of many chapters. I know it was a little slow, but I wanted to suspense and give the answer at the end. There were a few websites that helped me out. I want to give them credit, they're all .com, they are: offcianteric, weddedyourway, and modernceremonies. They helped me with vows and pronouncing marriage and introducing as husband and wife. I give them full credit for everything I used on their website.
