Chapter   Eighteen

A year later....

"Do you, Karen Davidson, take Kevin Richardson to be your husband? Do you promise to be faithful to him? To love, honor, and cherish him all the days of your life?"

"I do," Karen said with tears of joy in her eyes.

"Do you, Kevin Richardson, take Karen Davidson to your wife? Do you promise to be faithful to her? To love, honor, and cherish her all the days of your life?"

"I do," Kevin said. He also had tears in his eyes.

"Here you go, honey," Karen said, handing Kevin a Kleenex.

"Thank you, baby," Kevin said. The people attending the ceremony laughed as he wiped his eyes.

The priest performing the ceremony smiled. "By the power invested in me, I now pronounce you husband and wife. And may I encourage you to kiss the bride."

The crowd laughed once again and cheered as Kevin and Karen shared their first kiss as a married couple. Everyone scrambled to take pictures. Then the two of them faced the congregation.

"Everyone, I am proud to introduce to you Mr. and Mrs. Kevin Richardson!"

The crowd broke into a loud applause as Kevin took Karen's hand and ran with her down the aisle. Following them was Brian, Howie, AJ, and Nick with Karen's friends Anya, Eryka, Christie, and Leah. Once outside the church, they all got into one huge group hug with the newlyweds in the middle. Then they all headed to the reception to be held at the Disney World, the closest thing to Disneyland, which of course was on Karen's side of the country.


Another year later....

"Ow, ow, ow, you're breaking my hand!!" Kevin yelled.

"I hate you! I hate you! Why did I let you do this to me?!" Karen yelled out in response. She also squeezed harder. "You deserve to get your hand broken!! AAAAHHHHH!!!"

"I can see the head," the doctor told them. "Karen, I need need just one more big push."

"Come on, baby," Kevin said. "Just one more push."


"That's good, baby. Get it all out. Now push!"

Karen pushed as hard as she could, her nails biting into Kevin's hand. She started screaming again as Kevin encouraged her to keep pushing.

"The baby's out," said the doctor. "Congratulations, it's a girl."

Karen lifted her head up when she heard her baby crying. "Where is she? I wanna see her."

The nurses cleaned her up as fast as they could, wrapped her up in a pink blanket, and handing her carefully to Karen. She started crying when she saw her daughter. Kevin put his arms around the both of them. He looked out the window at the beautiful sky. Thank you, God, for my wife and my beautiful daughter. Kevin planted a kiss on top of Karen's head.

"Thank you, Kare Bear," he said. "She's beautiful, just like you."

"I'm sorry I almost broke your hand," Karen said.

"That's okay. It would've been well worth it." They laughed.

"Would you like to hold your daughter?" Karen held her out to him.


Kevin carefully took his daughter out of Karen's arms. He looked down as he held her in his arms. The sight of her brought tears to his eyes. He handed her back to Karen, saying he was going to tell the others. Kevin left and ran to the waiting room. When he got there, William, Ann, Jerald, Veronica, Tim, Jennifer, Brian, Howie, Eryka, Nick, and AJ all stood up.

"It's a girl," Kevin said, proudly. "Karen is fine."

They crowd let out a loud sigh of relief, then went over to Kevin, congratulating him and giving him hugs.

"Do you know what you're gonna call her?" Brian asked.

"Yeah," Kevin said, as everyone got quiet. "Karen talked about it while she was waiting to go into delivery. She will be Angela Jeralyn, for her mother and my father...." Kevin looked at his mom and father-in-law, "....and the arrangement of the names was deliberate 'cause it's AJ's birthday."

"Thanks a lot, man," AJ said, giving him another hug. "This is definitely the coolest birthday I've ever had."

Everyone laughed.

"Do you want us to deal with the media or do you want to do it?" Howie asked. "They're crowding the entrance."

"You guys do it," Kevin said. "I'm gonna spend some time with my wife and daughter."

They all nodded and congratulated him once again. Then Kevin left to join his wife and daughter in their hospital room.
