Kay: Toaster broken?
Cameron: Wasn’t when I started with it. Pretty sure it is now.
Kay: Toaster broken?
Cameron: Wasn’t when I started with it. Pretty sure it is now.
Cameron: [About Jonathan] You know, I will never forget that moment. The moment the world sort of blows you backwards and the one person you thought would always be there to catch you…he isn’t there.
Mike: This is a disaster! The printer messed up the invitation! It’s supposed to say “Dina’s Birthday!”
Cameron: What does it say instead?
Mike: “Dina’s Bi”.
Cameron: Hey, that could still work.
Kay: Can’t tell you how many teachers I wanted to beat up in Catholic school. Ten.
Jonathan: I didn’t know you went to Catholic school.
Kay: Good. You shouldn’t know it.
Mystery Woman: I’m surprised you’ve read Othello.
Cameron: What the hell’s Othello? I’m calling you the parrot from Aladdin.
At the end of the day, Cameron and Jonathan went home with their niece. Despite everyone’s help for the funeral, both brothers were exhausted. They plopped down onto the sofa after Jonathan placed Farrah in her playpen. She was still fussing a little but she seemed to be tiring herself out. “Hey Cam?” Jonathan spoke up.
The older twin sighed, “Why didn’t Dad ever tell us? Did he just not believe that he was Fiona’s father? Did he just not… not… want her? I mean I know he wasn’t a good guy but… I mean, if I thought I had a kid out there, I’d want to be there for them.”
“I don’t know…”
“I guess it’d be useless to ask him that because he denied I even existed and he raised me… he probably had no trouble pretending he didn’t have a third kid.” Jonathan ripped his tie off in frustration, “I mean how terrible would it have been? Maybe if we had been together-”
“He might have been just as hard on her as he was on us. Maybe worse.”Cameron interjected, “I never thought Dad was secretly a good guy… I just never thought he was-”
“A deadbeat? A piece of crap? A monster?”
Cameron let out a chuckle trying to make it sound like a cough, “Yeah, I guess.”
“There’s just one thing I don’t understand.”
The younger twin raised an eyebrow, “What’s that?”
“Why did Fiona go to that abandoned warehouse?”
Cameron’s eyes widened slightly, “Yeah… and how did she know that there was hollow wall she could hide Farrah in?”
Before Jonathan could think of a reason, a tiny voice was heard, “Johnny… Johnny…” Farrah tiredly called out from her playpen. Jonathan walked over to her as she held up her little arms, “Johnny.”
Jonathan picked her up and she just rested her head on his shoulder, her arms just hanging at her sides. “I think someone’s really tuckered herself out.” Jonathan said, rubbing her back as she sniffled, “Where are her pajamas?” He then smelled something unpleasant, “And her diapers?”
“I’ll show you.”
It took Cameron and Jonathan a good twenty minutes to get Farrah into a fresh diaper and a pair of pink pajamas with white bunnies as a pattern. Jonathan left the room to change and Cameron placed Farrah in her crib but she gripped the end of his sleeve and looked up at him. She didn’t want him to go. He bent over the crib to look at his niece, “Hey… I’m right here Farrah. I’m not going anywhere. Uncle Cameron’s here.”
“Cam’mon…” Farrah gurgled.
Cameron’s eyes widened, “What did you just say? Did you just say my name?” Farrah giggled. It was the first smile she had given all day. “Did you say ‘Cameron’?”
Cameron chuckled, “Close enough. Johnny!” He called out.
Jonathan walked back into his niece’s room, “What’s wrong?”
“Farrah just said my name!” Cameron patted her curly haired head, “Farrah, can you say it again? Can you say ‘Cameron’?”
“Cam’mon.” She giggled as her other uncle peered over into the crib.
Jonathan grinned, “Well, now you can stop pouting Cam. She can say both our names now” Cameron let out a laugh.
They stayed until Farrah fell asleep… but things didn’t stay quiet for long.
Farrah slept through most of the night. However, around five in the morning, Cameron and Jonathan were both woken up by the sound of Farrah screaming and crying. Jonathan ran to Cameron’s room and Farrah had kicked her blanket aside as tears ran down her cheeks. Jonathan turned on the light and Cameron rushed over to pick her up. She cried into his shoulder as her sobs began to quiet down. Cameron just kept stroking her back until she calmed down.
“Hey… it’s okay… it’s okay…” He whispered.
“Mama… Dada…” She whimpered. She wanted her parents. It made Cameron and Jonathan’s hearts break that this was the one thing that they couldn’t do for her. They couldn’t bring back her parents. All they could do was try to make her happy.
A few days later, Cameron and Jonathan were still dealing with a fussing Farrah. She wasn’t throwing tantrums but her eyes were still tearing up and she couldn’t stop crying. She kept calling for her “mama” and “dada”, and clutching the woolen blanket Fiona had made for her. Jonathan was trying to get Farrah to laugh by making funny faces. It was getting close to the end of November. It was almost her birthday. She should be happy on her first birthday.
She just clutched her blanket tighter and looked at him with tear filled eyes. Jonathan sighed, “Come on Farrah… can you give Uncle Johnny a smile?” She didn’t say anything. “Come on, do you know how much of my dignity I’m giving up for these faces?” He joked. She still didn’t say anything. She just looked at him with big sad eyes. He sighed, “Alright… come here little girl.” He picked her up from her high chair and her little hand gripped his shirt. Jonathan got her bottle for her and she grabbed with her hands as soon as he brought it close to her and started to drink her milk.
Cameron walked in wearing a button-up shirt and jeans, “Hey Johnny”
“Hey Cam. Farrah’s still fussing a bit and thought I might be able to help out. So far, not much luck… but at least her fussing isn’t affecting her appetite.” He tried to smile. Right now, all he wanted was to see his baby niece smile. Farrah continued to drink her milk as she looked up at Jonathan with her big brown eyes. Suddenly he remembered something, “Hey Cam?”
“I’m going to say something but it is to never to leave this room.”
Cameron raised an eyebrow, “Okay…”
Jonathan pulled something out of his pocket and handed in to his brother, “Here.”
Cameron’s eyes widened, “Wha-how?” He held up the item. It was the bracelet he had given to Kay before… things got crazy.
“I was thinking maybe you could actually hand it to her this time.”
“Where did you find it?”
“After… what happened and Mike cuffed the mystery-Cornelia, I found it in the grass. I don’t know if you’d still want to give it to her but I just thought you should have it.”
“Don’t mention it.” He saw Farrah’s mouth twitch upwards slightly as she continued to drink her milk. Jonathan then quickly turned to his younger twin with a stern look, “I’m serious, not a word about this to anyone.”
Cameron chuckled and held up his hands, “I wouldn’t dare. Far be it that people know you’re sentimental.” Johnny gave him an intimidating glare… well; Jonathan thought his glare was intimidating.
Once Farrah had finished her bottle, her eyelids grew heavy and she snuggled closer to her uncle. At least she was getting some rest. However, the quiet lasted only an hour, Farrah woke up, still in Jonathan’s arms and she wanted to play. Cameron put on a children’s show on the television and Jonathan placed her in a playpen as she became hypnotized by the bright colours and funny noises on the screen.
That afternoon, there was a knock on the door. He walked over with and Cam opened the door to find Kay on the other side. He smiled, “Hey.”
“Hi.” She smiled back
“Hey Kay.” Jonathan called from the kitchen.
“Hi Jonathan.” She looked to Cam, “Is this a bad time?”
He shook his head, “Not at all. Come in.” Kay walked in and suddenly Cameron noticed something, “Your arm. It’s out of the sling.”
She grinned, “Yes it is. Doctor said I still need to take the pain meds for a couple more weeks and I have to be careful but… I can go back to work in January.”
Cameron’s smile only grew as he hugged her, feeling relieved as both her arms wrapped around him, “I’m glad.”
Kay pulled away slightly to face him, “You know,” She started as she placed her hands on his shoulders, “I would still need an unofficial observer to join me on cases.”
Cameron raised an eyebrow and smirked, “Oh really?”
“Yeah.” She called over Cam’s shoulder, “Jonathan, are you available?”
Jonathan laughed as Cameron furrowed his brows until he saw her attempting to hold back a smile. “Wow. Just wow.” He couldn’t help but grin, “I thought you loved me. You know I have a fragile ego. I’m still recovering from finding out that FBI observer wasn’t a real thing.” Kay just laughed. “You find that funny?”
She nodded, still smiling, “Very much so.”
Cameron was about to pull her in for a kiss when Farrah squealed from her playpen, “Kay!”
“Hey, look at that.” Jonathan smiled, “You got her to smile.”
Kay walked over and took the baby out of her playpen, “Did I?” She held the little girl close, “I really missed you Farrah.” Farrah gurgled as she gripped Kay’s shirt, “Yes I did. Yes I did.” She cooed to the little girl. Kay paused for a moment and looked to the twins who were both giving her amused looks. She raised an eyebrow, “I’m sorry, can I help you?”
Cameron chuckled, “Sorry, we’re just not used to seeing you act like this.”
Kay rolled her eyes. “Well, excuse me for being fond of the child.” She joked.
Cameron moved to take Farrah from her when Kay moved back. “I thought the doctor said you shouldn’t strain your arm.”
“Try and take her away from me, see what happens.” She smirked. Farrah giggled as Kay held her close. “What’s the plan for today?”
“Well, I was going to go get some stuff for Farrah’s birthday on Friday. Care to join me?”
Kay nodded, “I’d love to.”
Cameron turned to the kitchen, “Hey Johnny, wanna come with us?”
“Actually, there’s something I need to do in the archive. I’ll see you guys there later.” He was about to leave to change when he paused, “How do you guys feel about pizza for dinner?”
“Sounds good.” Cameron and Kay both nodded.
Later, when they were at the supermarket, Kay helped Farrah take her little coat off when she started to whine a little under the heat of the supermarket lights.
“I’ll go see if I can get a cake ordered for the party.”
“Good idea.” Kay replied as she placed Farrah in the baby seat of the shopping cart. It was funny; Kay actually couldn’t remember the last time she had been to the supermarket. Before she met Cameron, she lived mostly on take-out and coffee. She lived so much for her work that she didn’t really think about much else. She never thought about family all that much but now… things were different… and she liked it.
Kay started to push Farrah in the shopping cart as the little girl babbled on about something and she kept her pale little hands on Kay’s hands that were gripping the cart handle. It was clear that Farrah was very fond of Kay and vise versa.
Farrah let out a tiny cry in the shopping cart when Kay turned away for a moment to get something off the shelf. She turned back and Farrah had her arms out, reaching for the agent. “Hey…” Kay bent down a little so the little girl could see her, “I’m right here Farrah. I’m not going anywhere.” Farrah placed her hands on Kay’s cheeks as Kay kissed the baby’s forehead making the little girl giggle.
Cameron came back with a receipt in hand, “I got the cake ordered, and they said we can pick it up on Friday before noon.”
Kay managed to remove Farrah’s hands from her face but the little girl took hold of both of Kay’s index fingers “Perfect. What flavour did you get?”
“Figured we couldn’t go wrong with chocolate.” Cameron said as he came into Farrah’s line of sight.
The baby squealed when she saw her uncle, “Cam’mon!”
Cameron smiled as he took the cart from Kay. Farrah tried biting down on the cart handle but Cameron stopped her by getting his own hand bitten, realizing what was going on when he saw her clenched fists, “Kay, can you get a teething biscuit from her diaper bag?”
Kay nodded and found a little box of teething biscuits in the bag full of baby materials. She took one of the little shortbread-looking biscuits and handed it to Farrah. The little girl started to happily munch away on it which made her relax in her seat. The rest of their shopping went smoothly as they got some groceries as well as some kid-friendly party-type food.
Although Kay did almost punch Cameron for making so many food puns.
Friday came about much faster than they expected. Farrah woke up that morning, stood in her crib, gripping the white wooden bars and called for Cameron, waking him and Kay up. Cameron yawned as he got out of bed as Kay fell back asleep. He walked over to his niece’s crib with a tired smile, “Hey Farrah… it’s your birthday today. Your very first birthday.” Cameron took his niece into his arms and she flapped her arms. “Do you even know it’s your birthday today?” He held up his index finger, “You’re one. One year old… that’s little.” Farrah giggled as she grabbed his finger. Cameron grinned and kissed her head making her giggle again, “I wish you could stay like this forever.”
Farrah turned her head and pointed to the sleeping agent in Cameron’s bed, “Kay!”
Kay stirred slightly but didn’t wake up. Cameron chuckled lightly, “Should we wake Aunt Kay up?”
“Okay, but if she gets mad, I’m blaming you.” Cameron sat down on the bed and let Farrah crawl over to Kay.
“Kay.” Farrah waited for Kay to move but she didn’t. Farrah lightly patted Kay’s face. Kay stirred slightly as Farrah pouted continued to pat her face, “Kay. Kay.”
Kay’s eyes opened to find the little girl in front of her face. She let out a light chuckle, “Well, good morning to you too.” Farrah giggled as she kept a hand on Kay’s cheek. “You know if you weren’t so cute, I’d be really mad.” Farrah just giggled again.
“That’s why I had her wake you up.” Cameron joked.
Kay smirked, “So if I got mad, it’d be at the birthday girl?”
Cameron let out a laugh and shrugged, “She probably wouldn’t remember.”
Kay rolled her eyes as she sat up and placed Farrah on her lap, “Uncle of the year, ladies and gentlemen.” She ran a hand through her hair and then noticed Cameron smiling at her, “What?”
“Nothing.” He grinned. Kay smiled at him. Just a few weeks ago, Cameron thought he’d never get to see that smile again. Now he could only hope he’d get to see it every day.
“I love you.” She said as she leaned in towards him.
He leaned in as well and placed a light kiss on her lips, “I love you too.” Farrah squealed as the two adults pulled back. Cameron grinned, “And I love you too Farrah.”
Kay gave a content sigh before she adjusted Farrah to rest on her hip as she got out of bed, “What time did you say you were going to pick up the cake?”
“Uh, I was told it would be ready by noon so I’ll leave in a few hours.”
“And the party starts at 3:00 right?” Cameron nodded as Kay took out her phone, “Okay, I’ll tell Dina to be here by 1:00.”
Cameron raised an eyebrow, “Why’s Dina coming here?”
“She said she got a special dress for Farrah and she wants to come by earlier so we can get her ready for the party.”
He chuckled, “Of course she does.”
Just then Jonathan popped his head in the doorway, “Oh good, you guys are decent.”
Cameron raised an eyebrow, “There’s a baby in the room; of course we’re decent.”
Kay rolled her eyes, “What’s up Jonathan?”
“I’m just heading to the archive to do some last minute touch-ups.”
Cameron furrowed his brows, “I thought we finished decorating last night.”
The older twin shook his head, “I have a personal project I need to finish before the party.”
“Johnny!” Farrah squealed when she saw him.
“Hey Shorty. I can give her breakfast before I leave so you guys can get dressed… unless you guys were going for the pajama look.” He joked. Cameron rolled his eyes as he took his niece from Kay and handed her over to Jonathan. Jonathan took Farrah into the kitchen as she clapped her little hands together, “Yeah, there’s going to be a party today and you’re gonna get a lot of presents but more importantly you’re gonna have cake.” Farrah giggled as Jonathan got her bottle ready and gave her a bowl of honey-nut cheerios.
A few hours later, Dina showed up with a few little bags in hand. Cameron shook his head and chuckled, “You know you’re styling a baby right?”
Dina shrugged, “I’ve styled you, can’t be much different than that.”
“That hurts Dina.” Cameron joked, “Kay’s just getting Farrah cleaned up, kid had a bit of an accident, you can join them there. Which reminds me… I need to go get more diapers.”
Dina raised an eyebrow, “You’ve already run out?”
“No but I’m not risking it.” Cameron said as he sped out the door, taking his jacket with him.
Dina rolled her eyes as she walked into the baby’s room to find Kay drying off Farrah with a towel while the girl giggled from the fluffiness of the towel. “Hello Kay.”
Kay smiled at her friend as she picked up Farrah, wrapping the towel around the little girl, “Hey Dina.”
Farrah waved to Dina. The British woman smiled at the little girl, “And hello to you too Farrah.” Farrah smiled then buried her face in Kay’s shoulder. “I found a dress that I think will be perfect for a first birthday. I did have to make some adjustments to it.”
Kay smiled, “Let’s see it.”
Dina excitedly placed her bags on the table and pulled out a little blue dress with a noticeably large blue bow tied around to the back. “I had to move the bow from the front of the dress to the back and I removed most of the ruffles from the dress because the poor girl might not have been to sit without a thousand ruffles covering her face.”
“It’s beautiful Dina. What do you think Farrah?” Farrah cooed as she reached her arm out to the blue dress. Kay smiled, “I think she likes it.”
“Then let’s get the birthday girl dressed.”
An hour later, Dina, Kay, Cameron and Farrah entered the archive. They were surprised to see Marigold there so early with the guys. “Hi.” Cameron said, “It’s nice to see you Marigold.”
“Thank you for inviting me.” She walked over and held out her hand for Farrah to grab hold of her finger, “Happy birthday Farrah.” Farrah gurgled as she gripped the old woman’s finger and shook it a little before letting go and hugging her uncle’s neck. “She looks very stylish.” Noting the white faux fur coat Dina had gotten her and the headband with a blue bow on it that matched her dress.
“You can thank Dina for that.” Cameron grinned he placed Farrah down on the couch and helped her take off her little coat.
A little while later, everyone gathered around Farrah in her high chair as Cameron brought over a chocolate ice cream cake with a single candle and placed it on the little high chair table. Farrah’s brown eyes went wide when she saw the candle.
They all started to sing happy birthday to the little girl as she clapped along with them and giggled. Cameron helped show her how to blow out the candle. She managed to blow it out… with a little help from Cameron. “Johnny, get over here.” Jonathan shook his head in amusement, “Jonathan, you promised.” The older twin walked over and stood on the other side of Farrah. “Kay? Do you have the camera?”
Kay smiled, “Ready to go.”
“Okay, ready Johnny?”
Jonathan tried to hold back a smile, “Let’s get this over with.”
“Okay!” Kay started, “One… Two… Three!” As soon as she said that last word, Cameron and Jonathan both leaned down and kissed either side of Farrah’s face, making the little girl laugh as Kay snapped a photo. “Perfect.” Kay then noticed Farrah putting her hands on the cake, “I think maybe we should be cutting the cake now.”
“Johnny, you get the cake, I’ll get Farrah cleaned up.” Cameron said immediately pulling a napkin out of thin air and wiped his niece’s hands before she got herself dirty.
“Well, I think we figured out what part of the cake Farrah wanted.” Jonathan proclaimed making everyone laugh. He placed the cake on a side table as he got out the paper plates and begun to cut the cake.
As the cake was being handed out, Cameron placed a bib around Farrah’s neck and she banged her hands on the table in excitement. Jonathan placed a tiny piece of cake in front of Farrah and Cameron handed her a little spoon. As they passed out cake to the others, Kay was helping Farrah eat her cake as the little girl kept missing her own mouth. Cameron only wished he took a picture of Farrah’s face when she had that first bit of ice cream.
When Cameron walked over to check on her, Farrah took her spoon from Kay and tried to feed some of her cake to her uncle the way Kay fed her. However she kept missing his mouth as Cameron ended up with a lot of chocolate stains on his face. Farrah giggled as Cameron wiped his face with a napkin.
The party started to wind down a few hours later and everyone was just relaxing and silently chatting. Cameron and Kay were sitting on the couch with Farrah sitting between them. Jonathan walked over and placed the present that Shawn and Fiona had gotten their daughter in front of Farrah. “Thought that this should be the first birthday present she opened.”
Cameron nodded and smiled as Farrah eyed the box. Her little hands gripped the lid as she clumsily lifted it. She tossed the lid aside, it landing on Kay’s lap. Inside was a fluffy blue bunny plush with brown eyes and a pale pink ribbon wrapped around the plush’s neck. Farrah cooed as her tiny hands gripped the stuffed animal and she pulled it close to her. She smiled to the adults around her as she held the bunny tightly.
Cameron and Jonathan smiled at each other as Farrah showed her new toy to Kay who was pretending to be so amazed by the stuffed animal making Farrah laugh. They decided they could give Farrah her other presents in an hour and let her enjoy the last thing her parents were able to give her.
Two hours later everyone’s gifts had been opened and Farrah was busy chasing Jordan in the baby walker Gunter got for her. She was a speedy little baby in that thing. Cameron laughed as he turned his head to Kay. She narrowed her eyes at him and smiled, “What is it?”
He smiled, “Just thinking.”
“I’m lucky… I’m really lucky.” He took her hand and gently intertwined their fingers. “You know, I don’t think I could have done this without you all.” Kay chuckled slightly. “What? Too cheesy?”
“No, you’re just sweet.”
Cameron scooted over and wrapped his arm around her shoulders, “Really now?”
“Yeah… you’re so sweet that I think you might give me diabetes.”
Cameron chuckled and raised an eyebrow, “What’s with you?”
“I think I’m just tired. Pain killers.”
Cameron leaned in and placed a kiss on her lips and Kay smiled as they parted. “I have something for you.” He pulled out the bracelet out of his pocket, making Kay’s eyes go wide, “Johnny thought I should actually give it to instead of slipping it into your pocket.”
She smiled as he slid the bracelet onto her wrist. “It’s beautiful… although I still don’t understand the ace of hearts.”
“You’ve stolen my heart.”
Kay laughed, “Okay. That was too cheesy.”
Cameron pretended to look offended, “Excuse me that was not too cheesy, it was just cheesy enough.” Kay rolled her eyes and rested her head on his shoulder, taking his hand in hers. It had been a good day. She felt Cameron take a deep breath. Like a weight was being lifted from his shoulders. They suddenly heard Farrah come over in her baby walker. “Hey Farrah.” Farrah smiled at her uncle and lifted up her arms wanting to be picked up. Cameron took his arm off Kay’s shoulders, took his niece out from her baby walker and placed her on his lap. “Did you have a good day?”
Farrah just giggled. Kay smiled, “I think she did.” Farrah turned her head and reached for her blue bunny next to Cameron. He picked it up and handed it to her as she tightly hugged the bunny. The magician smiled as his niece relaxed in his arms and he turned his head to Kay. “What is it Cam?”
He motioned his head to where Jonathan, Gunter and Mike were having their own discussion, “I just didn’t think we would ever get here. I didn’t think that… this is how this whole mystery woman fiasco would end. I never thought I’d end up… raising a kid.”
Kay just gave him a smile, “We’re all still going to be here you know.”
He smiled back, “I know.” He looked down to his niece who was starting to fall asleep as she held the bunny close to her. “Hey Kay?”
“Do you… do you think Fiona and Shawn would be okay with the fact that Farrah’s being raised with all of us?” He hesitated with his question, like a child who wasn’t sure if he could speak.
Kay smiled, remembering what Fiona had told her. She placed her hand on his cheek, “I really think they would be more than okay with it. Farrah’s safe.” He smiled as her hand stayed there and she stroked his cheek with her thumb.
Five weeks. In just five weeks, Cameron’s whole world had been turned upside down and inside out. This little girl was now the most important person in his life and he would fight tooth and nail to make sure she’d be happy. He was with the woman he loved and by some odd miracle, she loved him too. He finally had his brother back and their bond was now stronger than ever. His family was back together and their circle had grown. He had no idea how he was going to do this but he did know one thing for sure; his life was never going to be the same and he didn’t mind. He had his family. Nothing could tear them apart again.
However that wasn’t going to stop others from trying.
Whew boy! Wow… I can’t believe we’re actually here. ‘A Bundle of Secrets’ has come to an end. Thank you so much to everyone who read it. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I loved writing it!
You guys are all the best!
If for some reason, you find yourself feeling melancholy about this being the final chapter, don’t despair! There is going to be a sequel, I have already gotten the first page written. I don’t know how long it will take but the story is not over!
After all, the end is just the beginning.
Happy Pal-entine’s Day! You guys are all my pals and I swear that finishing the story on Valentine’s Day was just a happy accident! <3
Have an amazing day!
Jordan: I can’t take it anymore! How long have we been stuck here?
Dina: Well, let’s see, add one, carry the two, minus the four… twenty-three.
Jordan: Twenty-three days!?
Dina: Minutes! Twenty-three minutes!
Cameron: [Power is out] We don’t need help.
Gunter: You think? I mean, I’m grumpy now. Imagine me in the morning without a coffee maker.
Jordan: Or a computer. Or stop light. TV. DVD. CD. DVR. -
Cameron: Stop saying letters!
Dina: [Points to her chest] I would never trade these for that. [Points to Cameron’s crotch]
Cameron: No it’s true. Everyone wants to see those. No one wants to see this.
What if MW’s gun had been loaded (like Jonathan missed a bullet or something) and she had shot Cameron. The shot being heard by Kay, Dina, Jordan and Gunter.
MW escapes only to run into them in the tunnel and she tells them that Cameron’s bleeding out in the archive which gives her a chance to escape because everyone’s so concerned for Cameron.
Cameron’s okay but they almost lose him and imagine Jonathan had to hear everything because the microphone was still in Cam’s ear. That’s how they get Jonathan out. Because of the microphone, they know that Jonathan was innocent, the mystery woman did frame him and she had a prison guard on the inside.
My point being… if the series had ended with Jonathan officially getting out of prison but the mystery woman still hasn’t been caught and now the FBI would double down on helping them find her because they’re thinking, “Oh snap we’ve been letting a serial killer walk free and have put a completely innocent man in federal prison for over a year!”
I think we would have been more okay with that then what we actually got!
Cameron: Don’t worry, I swore to protect helpless damsels! [Kay elbows him.] Ow! Were you offended by “damsel”, or “helpless”?
Gunter: Stupid ketchup.
Gunter: What what?
Dina: I was gonna let it slide but I’m curious… how is ketchup stupid?
Gunter: It’s spelt wrong! “Catsup”. [Scoffs] Hell of a way to run a railroad.
Mike: You can spell it that way. It’s an option.
Gunter: It’s a wrong option.
Mike: Ketchup with a “K” or “Catsup” is a legitimate option.
Gunter: Who says “Catsup”?
Dina: Who argues with condiments?
Dina: [About Cameron and Kay] Now, wait a minute. So, they’re gonna name their first child Jonathan?
Dina: How-how do I get them to name the next one after me?
Jonathan: It’s easy, you just walk in on them having sex.
Dina: Oh, so they owe me like, three Dinas.
Cameron: Kay, you cooked?
Dina: How did you know it wasn’t me?
Cameron: There’s only three people in the archive, and you’d still be my fifth guess.
For the 3 characters ask. Cameron Black, Kay Daniels, and Dina Clarke!
Guess three characters i would die for and i’ll tell you if you’re right!
You are right!
…But I have found loopholes.
Cameron Black - Yes but it would be useless because Cameron would have the bulletproof jacket.
Kay Daniels - Yes but I wouldn’t need to because Cameron would jump in front of her first.
Dina Clark - I mean I would but isn’t the woman already an angel, I think she’d be protected by that sheer fact alone!
Cameron couldn’t get to sleep that night. He kept tossing and turning, unable to get comfortable in his own bed. He eventually got to sleep and early the next morning, he reached over to his right but he remembered Kay wasn’t there. She was in her own home again. In her own bed. He missed waking up with her and having her smile be the first thing he sees in the morning. God, that one week messed him up. He was finally with Kay but… they never really discussed their relationship because everyone there already thought they were in a relationship. He hadn’t even taken her on an actual first date yet they’d taken things to the next level already.
But he knew he loved her.
5:23 in the morning. There was no use. He went to the archive. He didn’t do much there. He simply paced around the kitchen as he waited for the coffee to brew. He looked out the window to see that the rain was not letting up. Although the sound of the water falling from the sky was kind of soothing.
It was 6:15 in morning when Dina and Jordan walked in, “Cameron darling, you’re back.”
He smiled at his friends, “Hey guys. Where’s Gunter?”
“Probably still out like a light. He’ll be here at some point.”
Jordan smirked, “So how was the wedding?”
“Uh… big, loud and everything was very shiny.” He joked.
Dina smirked, “Did you and Kay have a good time?”
He nodded with a soft smile, “I like to think so…”
“Any pictures?” Cameron handed her his phone to show her the pictures Tiffany and Harris sent him as he got the coffee ready. Dina and Jordan scrolled through the pictures with amused expressions on their faces. They then reached a picture they honestly didn’t expect to see which made them a bit shocked, “Uh Cameron?”
“Hmm?” He replied as he took the coffee pot and started pouring it into a mug.
“Is there something you forgot to tell us?” Dina asked with a bemused smirk.
He furrowed his brows, “I… don’t think so.”
Jordan took the phone and showed him the photo that had him and Dina speechless, “Then can you explain this?”
Cameron turned around and saw that someone at some point had taken a picture of him and Kay while they were dancing. They weren’t just dancing in the picture; it was a photo of that kiss they had shared on the dance floor. “…Oh.”
Dina grinned, “Is that all you have to say?”
“I-I guess I forgot about that.”
“You forgot to tell us that you kissed Kay?”
“Well, it’s not like that was our first kiss.” He said before realizing it.
Dina and Jordan gave each other a quick look before Jordan spoke up, “I’m sorry. That wasn’t your first kiss? There is more to this story than you are letting on. Tell us.”
Cameron gave a look of hesitation. He sighed before he sat down and told them the whole story; he did leave out a few details that they really didn’t need to know like what happened the night of the wedding. When he was done, the three of them sat in silence for a moment. “Gunter owes me fifty bucks.” Jordan spoke up.
Dina slapped the back of Jordan’s head, “Now is not the time.” She turned her attention to Cameron, “So what are you going to do now?”
Cameron raised his eyebrows, “What do you mean?”
“Well, obviously you care for Kay.”
“Have you told her?”
“Well, I think so.”
Dina raised an eyebrow, “You think so?”
“I mean I did tell her that I was in this for the long haul. That I didn’t want this to be just some fling.”
“Okay. That’s a good start.”
Cameron started to get nervous, “What else can I do?”
“Do you love her?” Jordan asked. Cameron remained silent for a few moments before nodding his head. “Have you told her that?”
The illusionist shook his head. Dina gave him a tiny smile, “And why haven’t you?”
“I’m just… worried that it’s too soon. I mean we just started this. I haven’t even taken her out on an actual date yet.” Cameron replied, giving a little chuckle, “I don’t want to scare her off.”
There were another few moments of silence again. “Well, if she’s survived an entire week alone with you, I don’t think you can scare her off anymore.” Jordan joked.
Cameron rolled her eyes as Dina shook her head, “I think what Jordan is saying is that sometimes, it doesn’t matter, you’ve known Kay for a good while now and now you’ve realized that your feelings towards her is far more than platonic… and it’s good that you know that and accept it.”
“No, I know what I said.” Jordan replied earning him yet another slap to the back of the head from Dina.
Cameron gave out a laugh, “Well, Kay did say she’d call me if they needed us for a case.”
Dina shook her head slightly and gave her friend a smile, “Do you really think it’s a good idea to tell her how you feel while you’re working? I mean, have you even discussed how you two will behave around each other at work. Kay’s a very professional lady and-”
“You’re a little loose with the rules.” Jordan butted in.
Cameron gave a tiny sigh. Dina was right. He couldn’t just tell her how he feels during work. It just wouldn’t be right. “What do you think I should do? I mean she’s probably already headed to work, I can’t just go to her now and pour my heart out to her on her doorstep.” That’s when Dina lit up and smiled. “Dina, I was kidding.”
“I know you were but… it might not be the worst idea.” She said, “I mean you’ve already got a romantic setting.”
Cameron raised an eyebrow, “Pouring rain?”
“Hey, it is used in many a romantic comedy.” Jordan pointed out.
“But I don’t think we’re in a romantic comedy.” Cameron rebutted.
“Hey! Your life might be in a romantic comedy right now and you may not even realize it!”
Dina patted Jordan’s hand, “Alright young man, calm down.” She looked to Cameron, “I mean we could drive you to Kay’s if you’re worried about not catching her in time.”
“I don’t know… I don’t want to put her on the spot.”
“You are telling her in semi-private area given where she and if Kay doesn’t want to give you an answer, she can just walk away because it’s not like you’re going to pin her to a wall and tell her. You’re both adults and I know that neither of you play any sort of game with your emotions.” Dina smiled, “It’s one of things I first noticed about the both of you. When you feel something, you feel deeply and you don’t beat about the bush. Are you really going to start doing that now?”
It took them a ten minute drive to get to Kay’s building.
He had only been out of the car for two minutes but Cameron was already soaking wet at this point as the rain didn’t seem to show any signs of stopping. He stopped to catch his breath when he saw Kay leaving her apartment, letting out a yawn before she started walking towards her car, “Kay!” Kay didn’t hear him on account of the rain so he called again, “Kay!”
She jerked her head at the sound of his voice. She smiled when she saw him but then wondered why he was here at this hour. She thought he’d still be asleep. She grabbed her umbrella and met him halfway as he rushed over to her, “Cameron, what are you doing here?” She said putting the umbrella over both of them.
“I couldn’t sleep. You weren’t there.” Kay gave him a confused look, he explained, “I couldn’t sleep because you weren’t there.”
“Cameron, is everything okay?” Kay asked, wondering where he was going with this. Truth be told, she didn’t get much sleep last night either but she tried not to think much of it.
“Look, this past week, a lot between us changed.”
Kay nodded in agreement, giving a light chuckle, “Much more than I had expected.”
“Kay, I told you I’m in this for the long haul and I meant it.”
Kay gave him a loving smile, “I did too but… that doesn’t explain why you’re here… right now.” She chuckled, trying to get him under her umbrella.
Cameron took her face in his hands. She ignored the fact that his hands were soaking wet from the rain, “Kay, I-I want you to know, I need you to know that I…
Kay chuckled; putting a hand on his wrist while the other still held the umbrella, “Cameron?”
He looked deep into her eyes. He couldn’t hold back how he was really feeling anymore, “Kay… I… I love you. I’m in love with you.” Kay blinked as her hand lost its grip on his. Had he really just said that? Oh God, this had been a bad idea. Did he just ruin everything? He should have waited until she said it first. What if she wasn’t ready to tell him? She wouldn’t be so quiet right now. God, he’d wish she would say something. He didn’t want to push her but he couldn’t hold back how he was truly feeling. Not anymore. The sound of the rain was becoming unbearable. Cameron’s hands dropped from her face, “I-I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have said that.” He started to ramble, “It’s too soon, I shouldn’t have- I don’t want to pressure you-”
“I love you too.”
He almost didn’t hear her due to the sound of the pouring rain. “W-what?”
“I’m in love with you too you idiot!”
Cameron could barely respond before Kay’s umbrella fell out of her hand and she pulled him by the lapels of his jacket, crashing her lips against his. She felt the cold from his clothing. He was soaking wet from the rain but she didn’t care as she was soon drenched in rainwater herself. Cameron was quick to wrap his arms around her as he kissed her back. He pulled back for a quick second, “You love me. Y-you… you actually love me.” He whispered in disbelief as he pushed back some of her hair that had been matted down to her face. He knew she had said it in her sleep but it was still a pleasant shock to hear.
“I do…” She said with a smile, the rain having completely soaked her to the bone, “And you love me.”
Cameron’s grin couldn’t get wider if he tried, “Yeah.” He held her in his arms, feeling that sense of warmth again despite the cold of the water, “I love you Kay.” He said over the loud droplets of rain.
“I love you too Cameron.” She almost didn’t finish her sentence as Cameron crashed his lips against hers. Her arms wrapped around his neck as he picked her up just an inch off the ground and spun her around as they continued to kiss and laugh. They were happy.
A little ways down the road, Jordan and Dina were in the car watching the scene unfold. “Do you think that maybe we should get them out of the rain before they catch a cold? All that rain can’t be good for your health.”
Dina slapped Jordan’s shoulder, “Oh, shut up Jordan. It’s beautiful.”
“Should we really be watching them?”
“Look, Cameron had us drive him here, it’s not like we’re spying, we just happen to be here witnessing this beautiful moment between our two friends.”
“Yeah, I guess… but remind me about this later, Gunter still owes me fifty bucks.”
Cameron and Kay were utterly soaked to the bone before they realized just how cold they were. Needless to say, despite her best efforts, Kay was late to work that morning.
