Rauscher - Round 21

 Madison checked their new place out.  "Niiiiice," she said out loud as she wandered the livingroom.

 "Isn't this place great? Who knew Patrick had such a great house?" Ruby asked.  Madison glanced around.  This was the perfect party place!  The Grad Pad, they called it.  Originally there were supposed to have been all their friends together, but slowly one by one they'd succumbed to marriage and babies!

 Madison didn't know when it happened, but she'd started having feelings for Patrick...

 Not one to curb her impulses... she went for it...

 "Hey man, I was wondering if you had that disk..." Matt paused when he caught sight of who Patrick was snuggled up against under the blankets.  "Oh.  I see."  Silently, he retreated from the room. 

It hurt to see Madison with someone else, but that was how their non-relationship was.  They attached when they weren't seeing anyone else...  Apparently right now she was seeing someone else...

 Madison cleared her throat when she ran into Matt.  She knew he'd walked in on them, but didn't know what to say.  "So... are we cool?" she asked.

Matt shrugged. "Yeah, we're cool.  Just like we always say, if we're not married when we're in our 30's - we can marry each other."

Madison smiled. "Yeah. Something like that."

 Ruby couldn't believe Madison was so heartless! Didn't she know what a great guy Matt was?

"I just wanted you to know I'm here for you if you want to talk," Ruby told him.

"Thanks Ruby, I appreciate it," he said patting her shoulder.

Ruby sighed.  She wondered if Matt would ever see her as something other than a friend.

 "Hey! Look at you, stranger!" Patrick said when he saw Gloria hovering outside. 

"Look at me!" she teased. "Look at you!"

 One thing led to another...

 "What's wrong?" Patrick asked groggily.

"What's wrong?!" Madison yelled.  "I catch you in here with that... that... ugh!"

Patrick pushed his hair out of his face.  "What? It's not like we were dating... Oh God," he said, dropping his head down to the pillow.  "You thought we were dating?"

Madison turned on her heel and stormed from the room. What an idiot she'd been!  Why did she keep jumping from guy to guy when she had a steady guy in Matt.

 Finding him in his room, she shook him awake.  "Matt, Matt, I need to talk," she said.  Finally Matt rolled out of bed.

"What's wrong, Mad?" he asked, blinking.

Madison lifted her hand to stroke his cheek.  "I was thinking about you.."

 "No, let's not go there, Mad.  We don't date for a reason.  Been there, done that. You have Patrick."

Madison held back the tears.  "But... he... he... cheated on me with Gloria. I walked in on them together & he said that we weren't dating!"

Matt winced.  He knew how much it hurt to walk in on someone you loved lying with someone else.

"I'm sorry, Mad.  I'm here for you... just not in that way.  We just won't work as a couple."

 Madison rushed to her room and slammed the door. She was so confused.  Why did life have to be so complicated?

Even more complicated...

 And even more complicated...

 Patrick couldn't believe it. Madison really was pregnant.  And he was the Dad.  There was only one thing left to do.

Dropping to one knee, he asked if she would marry him.

 Not a minute too soon the vows were exchanged.

Welcome to the world Paxton!

 "You understand, right?" Patrick asked Matt again.  "We just need some space to start a family.  This isn't the Grad Pad anymore!"

Matt shook his head.  "Yeah, I understand," he said, his gaze lingering on Madison & the baby.  "Good luck to you guys," he said sadly.

  1. Love the bed-hopping! It was just a matter of time, Madison. Seems like a man-ho to me, though!
