This isn't going to be long… I chose to make one last chapter, instead of ending it in chapter 13…
So it's kind of a fade out… Some things will be solved some won't…

It took Randy a few weeks to get totally clean. It was hard and he couldn't have done it without Cody by his side. He hadn't laid a hand on Cody a single time after the night Cody promised to help him. He didn't drink, he didn't take drugs, he didn't abuse anybody anymore, good old Randy.
Randy had talked with Vince before his drug abuse, Vince wasn't sure if he wanted Randy back just yet. He wanted to extend his vacation, probably permanently, that was why Randy hadn't got back in the first place. He wanted to go back, but it would take a lot to convince Vince that he had to take him back. It could take weeks, months, maybe years? Cody thought it was the best for Randy to take a long pause from wrestling, he didn't think he was ready.

Cody and Randy are currently shopping together in the local supermarket. Cody is sitting in the trolley, Randy is pushing it. Cody points out all the things he wants Randy to buy , Randy gets Cody the things he wants, 'cause when it comes to shopping, Cody is way better than Randy. If Randy didn't have Cody, he would probably be eating every meal in a restaurant.

"What do you want for dinner tonight?" Cody asks Randy, looking up at him.

"I don't know, what do you want?" Randy replies, shrugging his shoulders.

"Come on, I asked you first!"

"This isn't a 'you hang up, no you hang up' situation Cody, you're the one making the meal, you decide, everything you make tastes good, so I don't care."

"You're so boring Randy! What about fish?"


Cody sighs, "Do you want to decide which fish?"


"Ok, then we'll have cod."

"Sounds fine," Randy pushes the trolley to the fish department. Cody jumps out of the trolley and starts to look at all the cods, he wants the best one, so Randy knows it can take a while.

Randy hums a sweet little melody for himself, while looking around the department, not much to see. A few shopping people, an employed and fish.

He stops humming immediately, when somebody suddenly clings to his legs, he looks down, right into a pair of icy blue eyes, just like his owns.

"Kyle?!" Randy shouts surprised.

"Randy!" Kyle shouts back, his voice is filled with joy, he starts jumping up at down, but he doesn't let go of Randy's legs.

"Randy?" A more adult voice says, sounding just as surprised as Randy. He looks up, it's Layla.

"La… Layla?"

"I haven't seen you in a while."


"I guess I forgot to give you my number?"


"Who is this? Aren't you going to introduce me?" Cody says, he looks like he's trying to send a signal to Layla, something like 'he's my man, so step back!'

"Oh, sorry Cody. This is Layla."

"Hey Cody, nice to meet you," Layla says extending her hand towards Cody, he shakes it a bit unwilling.

"How do you two know each other?" Cody pouts his lips a bit.



"It's L-A-Y-L-A?"

Cody's pouting turns into a confused look. Randy looks Cody directly in the eyes, when he makes a little nod down, making Cody look at Kyle.

"Oh… OH!? This is… Oh! Now I understand, I'm so sorry if I were rude!" Cody says quickly smiling towards Layla, she sends him a smile back.

"It's okay I understand."

Cody feels a little dumb for going into a defending position, just because Randy talked with a girl. But now he understands, it's the lesbian woman, then it doesn't matter, she won't take Randy away from him.

"When will you come visit us again?!" Kyle says, still jumping up and down.

"I… I don't know," Randy mutters afraid of giving the little guy to high expectations.

"Soon? I want to play with you again, we had so much fun!"

"Yes we did…" Randy pauses, he can't help smiling, the boy is his and the boy likes him. Was this how it felt to be a farther?

"The offer is still open," Layla says, making Randy snap out of his trance.

"Sorry, what did you say?"

"The offer is still open."

Cody feels like he has to interrupt again: "What offer?" They both look at Randy, both expecting an answer.

"We shouldn't discuss this now."

"I'm your boyfriend Randy, I have the right to know!"

"Cody it's not a good idea to discuss in front of… You know," he nods towards Kyle.

Layla rips a small piece of paper of her shopping list, quickly writing her number on it.

"Call me when you know what you want," she hands him the paper.

"I will…"

"Mommy, do we have to go? Can I go with Randy?"

"No honey, his boyfriend and him has to finish their shopping, like us."

"But I don't want to go."

"I'll buy you some candy?"

"Adults do that when they want to trick children in to doing as they say!" Randy cracks, he hadn't seen that one coming.

"That's true and I'm sure you'll fall for it."

"How much?"

"3 lollipops, a small bag of mixed candy and some gum."

"You are giving me no choice, that's a deal!" Kyle looks apologizing up at Randy: "I'm sorry Randy, my mom is a hard trader!"

Randy laughs softly: "She sure is, she knows how to sell the product," Randy winks at Layla.

"You will visit us soon, promise?" Kyle can make the biggest puppy eyes Randy has ever seen.

"You bet," Randy messes his hand around Kyle's hair.

"Come on Kyle, you better come now if you want your candy!"

"Bye bye Randy!"

"Bye bye Kyle…"

Kyle runs after Layla, soon they're out of sight.

Cody slams the door open and walks into the living room with heavy steps: "Why didn't you tell me about their offer sooner?!"

"I didn't get the chance?"

"You have had a lot of chances!"

"Sorry, I must have forgotten all about it."

"I don't believe you!"

"Cody please don't start a fight, I have had enough for today," Randy drops his exhausted body down on the couch.

"Why didn't you tell me!?"

"Cody calm down…"

"Randy tell me!"

"Drop it Cody, you know it now and that's the important thing."

Cody places himself right in front of Randy, he pout his lips and makes his angry look. Randy just shakes his head: "Do you really want to know?"


"I wanted to tell you all about it the night you kissed Ted," suddenly Cody's expression changes into an apologizing look.

"You know I didn't kiss him, it was h---"

"You don't have to explain… I believe you Cody," Cody drops down beside Randy. He puts his arm around Cody and Cody rests his head on Randy's shoulder.

"I'm sorry," Cody sounds calm again.

"It's okay."

"So… Do you want to be his farther?"

"I don't know, it's not my decision alone."

"What do you mean, didn't Layla and Tina give you a green light?"

"Yes… But what about you. You would be like a bonus dad, I guess, so your opinion counts too."

"No it doesn't, it's your child."

"Do you want to raise a child with me?"


"You don't have to answer it now."

"Let me finish!"Cody releases himself from Randy's arm, he sits straight up and looks Randy directly in the eyes.


"If raising Kyle is what you want… Then it's what I want. You mean everything to me, if you love him, I'll love him too."

"Are you sure?"

"Absolutely," Cody leans a bit forward, planting a kiss on Randy's lips. Cody likes that Randy has become a quiet, calm type. He never gets upset by anything and sometimes he even acts kind of hippie alike, all the peace and love stuff.

Randy gets up from the couch, dragging Cody with him.

"I want to ask you something Cody," Randy sounds dead serious, Cody is afraid of what he's about to ask him.

"What is it?"

Randy looks nervous as he gets down on one knee, taking Cody's hand and looks up at him.

"Cody Rhodes… Will you marry me?"

This is how the story ends… It leaves a lot of questions behind it –

Will Cody marry Randy? Will their relationship last, our will one of them abandon the other? What about Kyle… How's he going to take the news, you know, Randy being his dad and all? Will he get along with Randy… Maybe even more important, will he get along with Cody? What about Layla and Tina – and Ted?

Biggest question: Is Randy REALLY gay?
