Here to Eternity
Author’s Note: Well, everyone this is it. The final chapter of the story, and like the other chapters I hope that you read and review this one as well. Also, please read the note at the bottom of this chapter. And now…begin!
I got a room at the top of the world tonight.
And I ain’t coming down…no.
I ain’t coming down-
“Room at the Top”-Tom Petty
Nearly two years after Yusuke’s return home the couple had moved into a much larger apartment, and a brown eyed-brown haired toddler stumbled around the master room of the Urameshi household with a pacifier in its mouth. On this day the toddler was dressed very formal.
When Yusuke entered the master room he watched his child trip and cry. Yusuke smiled, and scooped the child up in his arms.
“Hey, you’re all right there Kosuke.”
The child no longer cried, but whined; and Yusuke kissed its cheek.
“Hey, come on now. Big boys like you don’t cry, do they?” Yusuke kissed his son’s cheek again, and tickled his chubby belly until he giggled like a happy baby. “That’s my big boy!” Yusuke replied with another kiss for his son.
Kayko giggled as well when she entered the room.
“Mama!” exclaimed the toddler, as he extended his arms for his mother.
Kayko smiled, took the child from his father, and kissed him.
“You know Yusuke, as good as you are with getting Kosuke to calm down maybe you’d be just as good changing his diaper the next time he needs it?”
“Na, I don’t think so. That’s just a little bit out of my area.”
Kayko chuckled. “So I’ve noticed.”
Yusuke smiled, and admired his wife’s dress. “You look nice by the way, Kayko.”
Kayko returned the smile. “Thanks, so do you, Yusuke. It’s kind of appropriate that for Kuwabara and Yukina’s wedding that you’d wear the same thing that you wore for our own wedding.”
Yusuke chuckled. “Yeah, it’s been forever since I’ve worn this…perhaps our wedding day was the last time. And ever since we opened our own restaurant the chances of me wearing something this nice are slim to none…By the way, what time do we need to arrive at Genkai’s temple?”
“In about an hour, you might need to help keep Kuwabara calm. After all, you’re his best man.”
Yusuke chuckled again. “Yeah, but I think Shizuru’ll help him with that. Kuwabara fears a slap from his sister more than the highest class of demon…kind of like how I fear a slap from you.”
“Kuwabara’s real lucky though. He’s doing well in college, and he found the one girl for him. He found what people sometimes search for years before they ever find.”
Kayko kept her smile and replied, “Kind of like you, right Yusuke?”
Yusuke kissed his wife. “Yeah, kind of like me…Will you be ready to go soon?”
“Yes, pretty soon. I just need to gather enough things for Kosuke. We don’t want him to throw a fit during the ceremony, you know?”
Yusuke chuckled for the third time. “I wouldn’t worry about that too much. Grandma always has a loving way at getting Kosuke to shut up.”
Kayko laughed. “Yeah, she does…So do you really think that Hiei’ll walk his sister down the aisle?”
“From the last I heard he will. Of course, knowing Hiei I’m sure that he’ll add a threat here and there.”
“You know, it’d almost be kind of funny to watch them trade insults during the ceremony,” giggled Kayko.
Yusuke smiled. “Yeah…it probably would be.”
