Hi, I want to thank everyone who has followed, favorited, and reviewed. It means a lot to me. I hope everyone likes this chapter.
Here's the second chapter of You're the One.
Disclaimer: I don't anything of Baby Daddy, although it would be pretty cool.
Recap: Brad and Bonnie were about to get married when Danny proposed to Riley. Riley ran off to her apartment, which both Danny and Ben counseled her and tried to talk to her. She realized what she wanted to say, she goes to Bonnie and Brad's reception. She gives her speech in front of the guests, which was about her being ready for her prince charming, and Danny proposed to her again, which she says yes, which left Ben heartbroken, since a small part of him still loves her.
Chapter 2: Moving Out
*Night after the wedding*
I can't believe that I'm getting married, it almost felt like a dream. A dream come true, we both got drunk, and had a good time celebrating. I notice a few times that Ben looked a little hurt, and I understood why, I was like that when he and Riley kept getting together, and kissing, and just being romantic in general. But it's now my turn to fulfill my destiny and that is marrying Riley Perrin. And if I was going to be with Riley Perrin, I needed to make some sacrifices.
"Bro, you can't move out. You have to give me two week notice." Tucker said.
"I'm sorry, but if I'm marrying Riley, who knows when, I need to move out now, so we can get our life started." I said.
"Do you have to move out now? Did she say, because you can wait two weeks, and move out then." Tucker suggested.
"I- we need to do this, and plus Emma can finally have her own room, so everybody wins."
"Ben, what do you think Danny should do?" Tucker asked.
"Honestly, I don't care if he moves in with Riley, or into his own place, nor do I care if he stays." Ben said, snarling.
"Ben, what is your problem? Aren't you happy for me?" I asked.
"You tell me, you're with a girl that you haven't even dated and now you two are engaged, and I am also in love with her, and now that I know I'll never have her. How do you think I should feel?" He argued.
"How do you think I felt when you two were together? I was the exact same way, and I never once tried to stop you, or wasn't happy for you. I let it be, because I knew if it was meant to be, it would happen." I replied, upset that my brother is so selfish, that he doesn't have Riley. It's not like I forced her to marry me. If she declined I wouldn't be frustrated. I would be hurt, but I would accept her decision because I knew that it was meant to be that it would happen.
"YEAH, WELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOU AND ME IS THAT YOU KNEW I LOVED HER AND YET YOU STILL TOOK HER. I NEVER KNEW YOU LOVED HER." Ben yells.
I yelled back, "YEAH, WHOSE FAULT WAS IT THAT THEY KEPT MESSING UP ALL THOSE TIME WITH HER? WHOSE FAULT WAS IT THAT THEY BROKE UP WITH HER BECAUSE OF HER BEING FRIEND WITH THEIR BROTHER? I'LL TELL YOU WHO. YOU. IF YOU LOVED HER YOU WOULD'VE FOUGHT FOR HER AND NOT SIT THERE TRYING TO GET HER TO LOVE YOU."
"YOU KNOW WHAT, YOU CAN HAVE HER AND MOVE OUT BECAUSE THAT WAY I WOULDN'T HAVE TO SEE IT OR YOU." He yells and walks to his room and slammed the door.
"Wow, Riley should feel really lucky to have two guys fighting for her." Tucker said, trying to smooth over the awkward silence.
"What's going on, I heard screaming and slamming?" My mom asked, as she entered my apartment, with Brad.
"Ben and I had another fight." I said.
"Again, seriously, can you two go one day without fighting." My mom groans. She's not wrong we have been fighting a lot lately, but it's always about Riley. But why can't he be happy for me? I was happy for him with her, and I loved her just as much as she did, or even more.
"Well, I'm sorry, but he's upset about the whole engagement. This one is more serious, he wants me to move out, so he doesn't have to see it, or me." I said, listening to what I just said, I'm a little hurt by what Ben said. We're supposed to be brothers and support each other and be happy for one another, even if the other's happiness hurts us. I knew he didn't mean it, but knowing he said it really hurts deep down inside.
"I thought Ben and I had this discussion already. I already told him once to be happy for you because of all the times he's been with Riley. But he obviously hasn't gotten over it, but he better soon, so he can be there for you, no matter how much it hurts." My mom said.
"But it's different than two days ago, now Riley and I are engaged, I'm sure deep down I would be feeling the same way as Ben." I replied, I knew how Ben felt, angry, furious, and pissed. "Someone should go talk to him." I said.
"I'll do it, I'm a dad now, and this should be my first father responsibility." Brad said, walking towards Ben's room.
End Of Danny POV
I'm not angry. I'm hurt that Riley and I are officially over. I have no more chances of being with her. And now my heart realizes that it's over, and I'm taking my feelings out on others. I'm only mad at myself because Danny's right, I did mess up with her. I broke her heart, got jealous over nothing I should've been worried about, and didn't trust her like I should. I just want to be with Riley, she's my soulmate, my destiny. But it's never going to happen because of the engagement. Trust me, I'm very happy for them, but it's hard being happy when I wish it was Riley and I.
I hope I find my Riley, like Danny found his. I mean, I'm not going to have the original, but maybe I could get a replica. Someone who's so close to being Riley, but she's in love with me and no one else. I know it's sounds like I haven't even moved on, but a Riley is what I want and a Riley I shall get.
I'm laying in my bed, when I heard a knock on my door, I hope it's not Danny, I know it's not Tucker, because he has a secret knock, and my mom barges in, so I had no clue who it was. I mean, it could be Riley.
"Come in." I said, as Brad walked in. I was not expecting it to be him. "I thought that you were going to be Riley."
"Yeah, but as my first act of being a dad, I wanted to solve this problem. So, what exactly is going on?" Brad asked. It's nice that he's trying to make an effort of being a father, but I don't know if he really wants to start with such of big problem, but if he's going to give an effort so will I.
"Well, at first I was happy that Danny and Riley are engaged. But watching them at the reception, dancing and being in love, it made me realize that she'll never be mine and that Riley and me are officially over. It sucks seeing someone you love so happy, but it's not you that's making them happy, it's your brother." I explained, my whole dilemma. I know that it may seem like nothing, but to me it's a hard thing to deal with because it's not just anyone, it's Riley.
"I know what you're feeling. When I was in my early twenties, I had this friend and we both loved the same girl, but my friend got her, and she never liked me like I loved her, and her and my friend got married. I thought life was over, and I'll never find love again, but then I met your mother, I knew I found love again and that it was my time to be happy. So yeah, you feel lousy now, but think that special someone is out there still and is looking for you." Brad explained. I never thought of it that way, I always assumed Riley was the one, I didn't even bother that there are other fishes in the sea and I need to swim around and search for her, like Nemo dad did in Finding Nemo, wow you know I'm a dad when I'm using similes from a Disney movie.
"Wow, I didn't know that you dealt with something like I did, was it your friend that was like a brother?" I asked.
"Your mother doesn't know either, and yeah he's like a brother to me and he still is." Brad said. "But take it from me, be happy for your brother and Riley, because one day they'll be just as happy for you." He said, before leaving my room.
I wondered what the love of my life is doing right now, maybe she's wondering where I am, and is searching for me. I knew that fate will decide when I get to be with her, but for know, I need to focus on my job, and Emma. I look at Emma crib, and I see her still sleeping, I'm surprised she slept through this morning events. I knew that I need to get over Riley, and the first step is apologizing for my earlier behavior.
End of Ben POV
As Brad left the room, he had a satisfied expression on his face. "How'd it go?" I asked, hoping everything was all good.
"Well, he sounded hurt and mad at first, but I had a heart to heart, and he seemed cool." Brad said.
"Do you think he'll want me to move out?" I asked.
"I don't know, I never asked him, but earlier he told you to move out didn't he?" Brad asked.
"Well, I think it would be easier if I moved out, to make it less intense for everyone, plus it would make the fighting stop."
"Dude, what about my two weeks notice?" Tucker asked.
"Would you rather have Ben and I fight here, and ruin things with the ladies you bring over?" I asked, even though not many ladies come here for Tucker, expect the crazy ones.
"Congrats on your new place and the engagement, give me your keys, pack your things and get out." Tucker said, knowing he saw it my way.
I smiled, and Brad, my mom, and Tucker helped me packed my stuff, I had some already packed, when I woke up this morning. Brad and I took apart my furniture, while Tucker and my mom put things in boxes. I texted Riley, telling here "I'm packing, and should be done by tonight. xoxoxo." I knew she got my text, because moments later she started packing with us. I would've asked Ben, but he needed time to cool done, and I didn't want us to fight, plus I doubt he would want to help pack. I'm starting a new chapter in my life, and it feels scary right now, but I know that it'll be worth it.
By the time it was 6:00, we were done, we completely skipped lunch, we were too focus on packing, we totally forgot.
"I want to thank you guys for helping me pack, once I get unpack, I'll make it up to you." I said.
"Oh, honey, you don't need too, unless you were going to buy me tickets to a Bon Jovi concert, or buy him for me, it's not necessary." My mom said, which caused Brad to glare.
"Hey, you love him just us much as I do, so don't give me that look, you hot piece of meat."My mom responded to Brad glaring.
"Oh, I love when you talk sexy." Brad said, kissing my mom, and leaving the apartment. Good thing I didn't eat lunch, because I would have lost it all.
"Well, sweetie, let's unpack, so we can get our life started." I smiled, as Riley and I walked out hand in hand.
"I so need to get a girlfriend." Tucker said, going to his room.
End of Danny POV
I lost track of time, I took Emma out to the park, since no one was at the apartment. Her and I haven't had alone time in a while, and I knew she would love going to the park.
When we got back, I notice that no one was still here.
"Tucker, Danny, are you here?" I shouted, since they could be in their room.
Tucker came out, "What's up?" He asked.
"Where's Danny? Is he here?" I asked.
"He moved out, so you two can stop fighting, he thought it's what you wanted." He explained.
I thought about what the earlier events, about how I did want him to leave, so I didn't have to see his face.
"Do you know if he's at Riley?" I asked.
"Probably, but I don't know."
I gave Emma to Tucker, and went to Riley apartment, which is right across from us, and I knocked on the door.
Danny was the one that opened the door, looking upset, probably wasn't expecting that it was me.
"What do you want?" He asked, glaring.
"Look, I want to tell you that I'm sorry for what I said. I shouldn't have said any of that to you, it was uncalled for, I didn't mean any of it. I guess, I was jealous that you got her, but talking with Brad, I realized that one day, I'll get my very own Riley, that I can call mine." I apologized, it was probably one of the most sincere apology I gave in a long time.
"Look, I'm glad that you apologized, and admitted your mistakes, it takes guts, especially from you, but, what you said hurt me, I think taking a little time apart from each other to let the intensity die down will be the best for right now." He said, it confused me, I wasn't sure if was forgiving me, but wanted time apart.
"What do you mean, are you forgiving me, not forgiving me?" I asked.
"I do forgive you, you're my brother, but lets take some time apart, to let everything simmer down."
"But wouldn't it get awkward? Like what if, we're all at the apartment, and you show up, would you leave?"
"No, I wouldn't leave, we just need to process everything that has happened, and take time apart, just give it a few days."
"This doesn't make any sense, you wanna take time apart, yet if we're all in one room, you'd stay, just not talk to each me." I said, then it hit me, "time apart" really meant, he didn't want to hang out with me. "You know what Danny, if you didn't want to hang with me anymore, you should have just said so." I yelled, then walked back to my apartment, slamming the door. If Danny wanted to spend time apart, then I'll gladly give him the space he clearly thinks he deserves.
Hope you like the second chapter, it was kind of boring, and I apologize, but it is getting intense, sorry for the long update, I'll try to update this story more often. Don't forget to review, by telling me your thoughts.
