So, I've just been on a writing kick lately huh? I wouldn't suggest getting used to it, I go back to school tomorrow and have a couple tests coming up. But let's enjoy it while we can!
So, this story got like a shoot-ton of reviews.
How could I not give it an epilogue after that?
I hope this is sufficient.
~Six Months Later~
"Well, here we are," Cody said as he led Zack into their shared dorm room; their mom and dad followed shortly.
"Oh my babies," Carey cried, hugging both her sons so hard that they had trouble breathing. "Going to college together. I'm so happy."
"Carey come on you're killin' 'em here," Kurt said, pulling his ex-wife off of their kids. She cried and wiped her eyes.
"Oh I'm sorry, but you're my babies. Cody, you take care of yourself, and Zack… Zack… you did it baby," she said, hugging him again. Cody traded an experasrated look with his dad before the two of them launched, Cody grabbing Zack and Kurt grabbing Carey. Zack smiled at his boyfriend/brother, who smiled back.
"Carey, they're 18 now. They're not your babies anymore. Isn't that right my boys?" their dad asked, his eyes watering slightly. "My boys." He sobbed and wrapped his arms around them, Carey smiling as she pulled out her phone and taking a photo.
"My boys," she said, sniffling as she hugged them too. They all hugged a big family hug before the older adults pulled away. "You two take care of each other okay? Cody, make sure Zack stays up on his classes, Zack, don't party too much."
"Zack, get Cody to relax every once in a while, Cody, enjoy yourself a bit." They all hugged again before the two began to leave.
"You two share the car okay? Don't hog it Zack."
"I won't," Zack said, slinging an arm around Cody's shoulder. "Cody will keep me on track, won't you?" he said, giving his brother a kiss on the cheek. Their mom awed while their dad rolled his eyes.
"You two take care of each other."
"We always do," Cody said, winding an arm around Zack's waist. Their parents smiled as they waved and left the dorms.
As they got to the car they shared driving up there, Carey sighed.
"They still think we don't know."
"They'll tell us when they're ready. Until then…"
"We act like we don't know. I know."
"They're happy at least."
"That's all I want for my babies."
Cody and Zack waited to make sure their parents weren't coming back before Zack locked the door and launched himself at Cody, knocking him onto one of the beds.
"Zack!" Cody cried out as they collided with the bed. "What if they come back?"
"They won't. Mom's probably sobbing in the car while Dad rolls his eyes and blasts rock music to block out her cries."
"That's the truth." Cody laughed and wound his fingers in Zack's hair, pulling his face down to press their lips together.
"You got what you wanted," Cody murmured against his lips, making him smile as they began to kiss again.
"And what's that?"
"For us to go to college together, to live together…"
"And you forgot the most crutial point."
"You've got that too." Cody grinned and pushed his lips against Zack's, their kisses getting deeper and more passionate, their shirts gone and bodies pressing together. As they continued to kiss, a loud knock was heard at the door.
"Dammit," Zack said, getting up and pulling a shirt on. Cody grinned and did the same, the two of them opening the door together.
"Hi," the person at the door said, giving them a nervous smile. They just stared at them.
"What are you doing here?" Cody asked, making her smile guiltly.
"Going to college. I finished high school after getting… removed, from the S.S. Tipton… And then I got accepted here. I saw you two coming in with your parents. Just wanted to say hi."
"Baby who ya talkin' to?" a deep voice asked as a large arm wrapped around her. They looked to see a guy, taller than all of them with dark brown hair and blue eyes.
"Just some friends from when I went to that sea school I told you about."
"Ah, twins… Zack and Cody?"
"Nice to meet ya," the guy said, shaking their hands. "I'm Matty."
"Nice to meet you," Cody said while Zack said "What's up?"
"Baby, I'm gonna go to my room. I'll see you later right?"
"Of course," she said as he kissed her cheek before walking off. She smiled at his retreating back before looking at them. "So…"
"You seem happy," Cody said, making her smile.
"So do you." Cody blushed as Zack wrapped and arm around him.
"How'd you figure it out?"
"Didn't take an idiot to see the sparks between you two. I'd like to think I had something to do with it actually."
"She has a point," Zack said, making Cody eye him. "If she hadn't made you fall in the water… we might not be where we are today." She smiled and then her eyes fell to Cody.
"Are we okay?"
"…Yeah, we're okay." They smiled at each other for a brief moment before leaving them with a small wave.
"See you two around."
Cody and Zack closed the door and shook their heads. Cody sat on the bed while Zack stood in front of him, eyeing him down.
"You gonna be okay with her here?"
"Yeah. She's moved on, I've moved on… I think college is gonna be good. For all of us," he said, pulling Zack on top of him. Zack smiled and kissed his longingly.
"I agree. This is gonna be good."
Well, I hope this filled everyone's need for a good ending!
