1 Year Later…
Dawson and Joey sat, snuggled on the large couch with a large bowl of popcorn between the two as they watched the end of a movie they had picked up. Dawson played with Joey’s hand all throughout the movie while Joey rested her head on Dawson’s chest, her eyes getting heavier and heavier. Now in her fifth month of pregnancy, Joey had begun to show; Dawson was unable to get enough of looking at her bare stomach with the bump indicating their growing child inside. The news of the pregnancy had both surprised and warmed them. Their families were excited as well; Lily the most. She couldn’t wait until the baby was born, which the doctors had told them was sometime in February.
Suddenly the phone beside them rang to life. Dawson groaned before reaching over and answering it.
“Hello?” Dawson looked over at Joey after a few seconds. “Yeah, we’re doing great. How’s school? He asked. There was a pause. He laughed. “That’s good. No, she’s right here beside me. Wanna talk to her?” he asked. He laughed once more. “Alright, here she is.” he handed Joey the phone.
“Hey, Joey!” Lily said on the other end. Joey grinned.
“Hey, kiddo. How are you?” she asked.
“I’m good,” she assured her.
“That’s good. How are you and things with you and the new boyfriend?” she asked, remembering Lily had mentioned something about it not too long ago. At the mention of a new boyfriend, Dawson’s gaze quickly snapped back to Joey.
“Boyfriend? What new boyfriend?” he asked. Joey waved her arm at him as Lily told Joey all about him.
“Oh he sounds like a keeper,” she said.
“Wait a sec, I haven’t even met this guy!” Dawson said, unable to stay quiet. Lily laughs on the other end, hearing what Dawson had said. Joey couldn’t help but laugh at him as well, finding it both cute and hilarious.
Five minutes later, Lily told them she had to go study for an exam. The two of them said their goodbyes to her before hanging up. Finally after a few minutes, Joey reached up and kissed Dawson.
“What was that for?” he asked.
“Because I love you,’ she said simply. Dawson grinned before leaning down and kissing her once more. Joey groaned in delight, raking her hands through his blond hair.
“Don’t start something you can’t finish,” Joey warned, breaking off their very heated kiss after a few minutes.
“Don’t worry; I won’t,” Dawson assured her, standing up and carrying her to the bedroom.
