Seventeen years later, Lizzie and Hayden sat at their house, outside on the porch. Their youngest, Rachel, at the age of eleven, was very independent. The twins, Chase and Hayley were starting their senior year of high school that next year. Hayden had retired from the game, but he went on to own and coach the Braves. Lizzie sold her business and helped Hayden manage the team.

Lizzie walked into the kitchen to grab some food for the barbecue when Aiden walked through the door. At the age of 23, he stood 6'4" and was built like a football player. Instead of playing baseball professionally, he became a businessman. He owned a small electronics company that was starting to get very popular. He smiled down at his mother and pushed his sandy blonde hair out of his eyes. "Hey, Mom."

Lizzie turned around and looked up at Aiden. She squealed with delight and threw herself at him.

Aiden held her against him, holding her off the ground. "Aiden, I've missed you! How dare you stay away for such a long time." She kissed his cheek.

Aiden laughed and kissed hers back. "I've missed you, Mom." He set her down. "What did you make me?"

"Your father is outside with the grill. Come on."

Lizzie and Aiden walked outside. She smiled and hugged him again. "Look what I found inside."

Four pairs of eyes looked towards the two. Rachel smiled and ran as fast as her little legs could carry her. "Aiden! You're home!"

He bent down and scooped his sister up in his arms and over his head. After he set her down, he patted Chase on the back and winked, signaling fun later. Hayley, the shyest one of the family, threw her arms around Aiden' neck. Aiden lifted her off the ground and held her. They had become inseparable as kids. "It's good to see you, Hayley. I've missed you." He whispered.

"I've missed you, too. I have so much to tell you." She whispered back.

He smiled and gently set her down, nodding. "Later."

Hayden and Lizzie watched their children wrestle around the yard. Hayden leaned down to kiss his wife. Lizzie returned the kiss and smiled. "I'm so happy I found you." He said.

"It's a good thing you got injured, wasn't it?" She teased. He laughed and ruffled her hair.

Aiden watched as his parents flirted around. Even after almost twenty years of marriage, they were happily in love. He wanted that. He wanted children of his own. He smiled softly as Hayley talked to him. But, he really wasn't listening. He was thinking about the young lady who moved in next to his condo. But that, is a whole other story.
