I thought it was kind of weird that Shawn was worried about money all of the sudden and I felt like Gus would tell on him to Juliet.

SHULESPINEAPPLESSHULES

Juliet hesitated in calling her boyfriend when the time on the display of her phone read 10:03am remembering that Miami was three hours ahead. She decided to text him instead when her phone started vibrating and FaceTime ring started.

"Hey," she answered, happy to see his face. "I was just going to call you."

"We're connected, Jules," he replied and blew her a kiss.

She giggled, "so Gus texted me last night. He said you're worried about making money and you keep trying to find another job?"

"Do you know how hard it is?" He asked, "I was a bartender for about 5 minutes last night. But then I got fired."

"Shawn," she sat back on the couch, "why do you think you need to make more money?"

"My father brought it to my attention that I am a leech," he ran a hand through his already messy hair, "he paid for my motorcycle insurance, you pay the rent and everything, Gus pays for a lot. I don't contribute."

"Yes you do. Trout made it hard by not hiring you but you do contribute," she insisted, "maybe you and Gus could come up with a way to get more private cases."

"How do I contribute?" He asked, not letting her get past that.

She smiled softly at him. "You buy dinner sometimes. You bought me that dress. And you also do things for me that show me you care. You make dinner, you help with the laundry, you try really hard not to be messy."

"So you don't think I need another job."

"No," she shook her head, "Shawn, you are an amazing investigator. You are so good at that and you like doing it. I don't think you would find anything else you like doing as much."

"Thanks, Jules," he smiled.

"You're welcome."

They just looked at each other on FaceTime for a minute.

"I miss you. When are you coming back? There's no one to snuggle with!"

"Soon," she laughed.

Title: Candy Hearts

Valentine’s Day fluff.

SJSJSJSJSJSJSJSJSJ

Shawn stode into the Santa Barbara police station, a bag of candy in his hand. Valentine’s Day was tomorrow and he was working on plans. He made his way to his girlfriend's desk, saying hello to Buzz on the way. She was typing - eyes focused on her computer screen, finishing up a report from their most recent case. Her hair was up in a ponytail; she blew her bangs out of her eyes. Shawn smiled at the action. She had just gotten them trimmed and she wasn't used to the shorter length.

“Hey Jules,” Shawn smiled. He went around her desk and pulled a chair over to sit on her right side.

Juliet saved her file and smiled at her boyfriend, sitting back in her chair and welcoming the break. “Hi Shawn! I didn’t think I would see you until later.”

“I was perusing the aisles of CVS and I saw the candy hearts,” Shawn explained. “Everyone loves candy hearts! Gus especially likes the green ones. I’m partial to the pink ones.”

“The yellow are my favorite,” Juliet told him.

"Where's Lassieface?" Shawn looked around.

"He's having lunch with Marlowe."

"More for us!" Shawn opened the bag and dumped a few out on her desk forming a pile of orange, white, purple, green, and pink candy hearts with bright pink writing. Shawn picked up a heart and handed it to Juliet.

She read the heart aloud. “Sup babe?” She giggled.

In response, Juliet handed him a heart, eating the one he had given her.

“UR Mine,” Shawn read, “I like it!”

They continued to sift through the hearts finding cute ones.

Juliet gave Shawn a purple heart reading “Love You” and Shawn replied with two hearts, one yellow with the words “Love You” and a pink one saying “My Girl”. Juliet grinned and passed him one reading: “Kiss Me”.

“Absolutely,” he said and leaned over to kiss her softly.

It was Shawn’s turn to give her a candy heart. The white heart he gave her said “Soul Mate”. Grinning, Juliet gave him an orange heart with the words “One & Only”. Shawn slid a green heart over, the pink words proclaiming “Crazy 4 U”. Juliet picked up two pink hearts and put them in a short candy heart sentence in front of Shawn.

“I heart you BFF,” Shawn read aloud. He gave her a heart that said “XOXO”.

Juliet laughed at the heart she picked up and gave it to Shawn. The orange candy heart said “Too Hot”.

Buzz stopped at her desk to ask her to sign something and Shawn took her distraction to plan his next move.
When Juliet turned back to Shawn, sitting with her candy heart collection was a diamond ring and a yellow candy heart, its pink words asking “Marry Me?”.

Juliet looked at him, a smile spreading across her face. She picked up a pink heart from the pile and put it next Shawn’s candy heart collection.

The pink words proclaimed, “Yes”.

SJSJSJSJSJSJSJSJSJSJSJ

Shawn was chasing a suspect – or rather running after Juliet who was following Lassiter who was chasing a suspect – through the maze of storage crates in a dark warehouse. And then suddenly he was flying then falling and his head hurt and he was no longer running. Why did he stop running? He heard his father’s voice in his head, telling him what he said when Shawn was going to his high school reunion. ‬

His father’s voice told him: “life is not made up of a single moment. It's made up of a gazillion moments. What defines us is the choice we make in the next moment, and the one after that. These moments, Shawn, they're happening, they're all around us, all the time.”

And then he was in the Psych office, it was bright and sunny outside but, well that's weird. He vaguely remembered he had just been running through a warehouse at night. That couldn't be right. A quick look at the calendar told him it was the day Yang started her game, when she kidnapped that waitress and then his mom.

Shawn briefly wondered how he knew thawonders going to happen today, but before he could hold on to that thought and dive deeper into it Gus came in the office.

“I don’t really feel like going out to breakfast today, Shawn,” Gus told him.

“Not a problem, Gus,” replied Shawn, “I have a brand new box of Cocoa Pebbles. Whaaat!”

“Nice!”

After a quiet morning filled with Cocoa Pebbles and The Breakfast Club – no pun intended - they got a call from Juliet to come to the station. That call led to running around the city from clue to clue trying to find a waitress from a restaurant close to the Psych office who had been kidnapped. The clues got more and more personal towards Shawn. He snapped at Juliet, told her to leave and that he was done playing this game. But he kept working at it, ended up at a hotel room where he met up with Juliet and Lassie again.

He learned that Yang had taken his mother.

That was all finished now. He found his mom at the drive-in movies, talked to Yang and got her to give him the remote to the bomb attached to his mom. Yang was arrested; his mom was safe, he and Gus were hungry.

Shawn went to the concession stand to get some snacks before they closed. He picked up the tray containing the popcorn, candy, and two large drinks and stopped to get some straws. Juliet, wearing her hair down and a blue sweater that looked great on her, stood nervously five feet away from him in front of a jukebox.

“Jules,” he smiled, always happy to see her. “What are you doing here? What I mean is who is going to fit Mr. Yang with her straightjacket and iron mask with face grill?”

Juliet took a step towards him, trying not to fiddle nervously with her sweater, “Something tells me there’s an entire precinct full of officers bidding on that job right now.”

“Uh, can I interest you in a Necco wafer?” He held out the pack of Necco’s.

“Shawn, can you just not talk for a few seconds?” she paused to get her thoughts straight, “Look. I just wanted to tell you that what you did today….I mean I can’t imagine being able to function at that level while your mom was…you know.” Juliet looked down briefly, “I am, uh, clearly not as good with words as you are an, um, I know that things between us have been a little complicated and there have probably been some mixed signals. Mostly from me with regards to the time that we spend together outside of the line of duty.”

“Look, Jules…” he started. The last thing he wanted was for her to say they can't hang out anymore.

“Shh,” she took another step towards him. “Please just let me finish stumbling through this. I’m almost done, I promise. What I’m saying is that I think that maybe the best things, the richest things aren't supposed to come easily. And that sometimes the moments that make the most sense happen when everything else doesn't and... well...” Juliet shifted the popcorn and drinks from his hands to the counter. “I think you deserve more than popcorn tonight.” she was now almost a foot away from him. “So why don't you let me take you to dinner?”‬

‪Shawn smiled slyly, “Detective O'Hara, are you asking me out on a date?"‬‬

‪”I am,” she nodded, feeling more confident now that she got her speech out of the way, “A proper one."‬‬

“Let me give Gus the snacks and we’ll go, Jules.”

That date led to more dates. Dates led to sleepovers. Six months later, Juliet was Shawn’s longest-lasting girlfriend. Then they broke up.

Shawn was suddenly in a dark warehouse, three very concerned faces looking down on him. Well, two very concerned faces and one Lassiter.

“Jules,” he started, wanting to share his concussion induced revelation.

“I’m here Shawn,” she brushed her fingers over his hair.

“Jules there is no way it would have worked out between us if we had gotten together after Yang kidnapped my mom,” Shawn told her.

Lassiter rolled his eyes, “he doesn’t have brain damage, does he?”

“What do you mean, Shawn?” Juliet asked, helping him sit up.

“When I was unconscious I had a dream or something. Gus and I didn’t eat at that restaurant; I never called Abigail to ask her out. When you asked me to dinner I said yes but it was too easy and we didn’t last. You said it yourself, Jules,” Shawn told her. “During your adorable speech when you asked me out after we rescued my mom from Yang. You said the best things aren't supposed to come easily. We had obstacles and you almost went to the Almalfi Coast and...We didn't come easily.”

“How did you have such an elaborate dream in two minutes?” Gus asked rhetorically.

Juliet grinned, “So you’re saying there was no other way for us to be us than how it happened?”

“Exactly,” he nodded, “Will you marry me?”

“Seriously?!” Lassiter huffed.

“Yes, seriously,” Shawn retorted, making a face at Lassiter before looking back at Juliet, “The ring is at the Psych office and this is not how I planned it but – Jules. Will you marry me?”

“Yes,” she smiled. “I will marry you.”

ONWITHTHESHOW

Shawn reached over to the bedside table and picked up his phone. He unlocked it, went to the phone app and pressed the first name on his favorites.‬‬

‪Juliet heard her phone ring from the seat next to her. She picked it up and swiped without checking the caller ID. "Hello?" ‬‬‬

‪"Good morning, sweetheart," Shawn replied, still in bed. ‬‬‬‬

‪"Shawn, I'm sorry for -"‬‬‬‬

‪He cut her off, "Don't apologize. It's okay, Jules."‬‬‬‬

‪She smiled. "It was hard enough leaving. If you were awake when I had to leave it would have been harder."‬‬‬‬

‪"I know. You have to stop for smoothies. You can't have a road trip without smoothies."‬‬‬‬

‪Juliet laughed. "I will."‬‬‬‬

‪"Next weekend I am going to come up there, and you and I are going to flip it around in the hotel."‬‬‬‬

‪"Oh, really?" she was amused that he still used the phrase 'flip it around'.‬‬‬‬

‪"Yes really."‬‬‬‬

“I had a couple ideas while I was driving,” Juliet started.

Shawn cut in. “Do they involve you naked?”

She laughed. “No. They involve how we could complete the move.”

SHULESARESOPERFECT

Shawn sat on his dad's couch with Gus to his right, his dad sitting in the arm chair.‬

‪"What's this about Shawn?" Henry asked of the meeting Shawn said they all had to have.‬‬‬‬

‪"I'm moving to San Francisco."‬‬‬‬

Gus laughed, "No. Really. What's it about?"‬

‪"That's it. Chief Vick got a job up there and she hired Jules as head detective. She left this morning. I'm moving to San Francisco."‬‬‬‬

‪"When?" asked a surprised Henry.‬‬‬‬

‪"Well Jules said when I'm ready. I was mostly ready to go with her and stay a few days before coming back to pack...We agreed to give her some time to settle in and a weekend or two for her to come and help with the packing."‬‬‬‬

Gus blinked. “You’re serious.”

“Yeah,” Shawn nodded. “I have to tie things up with Psych. Gus, I’m sure Lassie will let you consult if you want to keep doing that. You’re getting really good at it! And my dad can help you.”

“San Francisco.” Gus stated.

“I know, man,” replied Shawn, feeling bad that he was leaving his best friend, “And I wouldn’t go if it wasn’t Jules. It’s only 5 hours!”

“Then you can stay here and visit each other,” Gus concluded, realizing how selfish that sounded.

“Gus,” Henry started.

Shawn took over. “If it was up to me we would stay in Santa Barbara and annoy Chief Lassie forever. But Lassie isn’t allowed to keep Jules so she would be transferred anyway. Getting to work with Chief Vick and be Head Detective is amazing for her. I can do this,” he put his hand to his head, “anywhere. You’re my best friend, Gus, but…I’m going to marry Juliet one day.”

Henry smiled, hearing the sincerity and happiness in his son’s voice at the revelation.

“She is the Jennifer Garner to my Ben Affleck. You're Matt Damon, Gus. They don't live together and they're still awesome,” Shawn told him. “And that means I’m Batman.”

Gus clicked his tongue. “Ben Affleck should not be Batman!”

“We’re getting off topic,” Henry stated, trying to bring them back. “If Shawn is that serious about Juliet then we should be happy for him and support him in his move. Like he said, San Francisco is only 5 hours away. Visiting them will be easy.”

“Plus,” Shawn added, “Who says you can’t move, too, Gus?”

Gus nodded, contemplating that idea.

The trio was interrupted by Shawn’s phone ringing.

“Ooh! It’s Jules.” He swiped the screen and put the phone to his ear. “Hi sweetie!”

“Hi!” Juliet replied, letting herself fall back on the bed. “I made it and I checked into the hotel.”

“Does it have a pool?” Shawn asked. “Can we put a dolphin in it?”

She laughed. “It does but it’s a little small for a dolphin. When you come up this weekend I was thinking maybe we could look for a house together.”

“I like that idea! You can ask Karen if she has any suggestions and I can look online so we get some ideas.”

“Okay,” Juliet grinned into the phone. “I’m meeting Karen for lunch. I’ll call you later?”

“You better. Tell her I say hi.”

“I will.”

“Smoochie smoochie. Love you.” Shawn said.

“Love you, too. Smoochie smoochie,” replied Juliet.

Shawn hung up and Henry laughed to himself.

“Smoochie smoochie?” Henry asked.

“You shut your face,” retorted Shawn.

LALALASHULESISPERFECT

Shawn stopped his motorcycle and parked in the spot next to Juliet's car. He unstrapped his overnight bag and walked into the unfamiliar police station to find his girlfriend. Karen knew he was getting in early but he wanted to surprise her. The visit last weekend had been canceled because she was in the middle of an investigation.

He had no trouble procuring a visitors pass and finding the Chief's office. Shawn walked into her office as usual.

"Chief!" He greeted, dropping his bag by the small table. "How are you?"

"I am well, Mr. Spencer," she smiled. "How was the trip?"

"Not bad," he took a seat in one of the chairs in front of her desk. "How has Jules' first week been?"

Karen smiled, pleased with her choice. "Very good. She seemed a little unsure on the first day but I suspect she called Carlton and he gave her a pep talk. Her partner needs some guidance but I think he'll be a good match."

Shawn nodded. "Cool, cool. Where is she now?"

"They taking a confession. I can show you her desk if you would like to wait there to surprise her?"

SJSJSJSJ

Juliet and her partner, Will, finished with their perp and headed back to their desks to complete some paperwork.

"Will, do you know of any good smoothie places?" Juliet asked. She had been wanting a smoothie and she knew Shawn would suggest they get some when he got here.

"No," Will replied. "I don't really like smoothies."

"Blasphemous!" Juliet heard her boyfriend say.

Juliet's face broke into a huge smile when she saw Shawn sitting in her chair. He stood and she tackled him in a hug. Juliet loosed her arms from around his neck enough to lean back and kiss him. They weren't really ones to engage in public displays of affection in the middle of her workplace but they hadn't seen each other in two weeks.

Shawn's hands slowly ran down her back as they kissed, Juliet more relaxed than she had been since she got to San Francisco.

Will cleared his throat and the two parted. Juliet stayed close to Shawn and he kept his left hand on her lower back.

"Um, Shawn, this is my partner Will Clark. Will, this is my boyfriend, Shawn Spencer."

Shawn took in Will. He was an inch or two taller than Juliet, slim but probably muscular. At first glance one might think he was a nerd. He seemed to not have full confidence in himself yet but Shawn remembered when he met Juliet. This guy would do just fine.

Shawn reached out to shake his hand. "Nice to meet you."

"You, too," Will nodded.

"We might have a problem if he doesn't like smoothies, Jules," Shawn told his girlfriend. "Even Lassie likes smoothies."

Juliet laughed. "he doesn't have to like smoothies."

Will went around to his desk, facing Juliet's desk.

"Fiiine," he huffed.

Juliet kissed him softly on the cheek. "We have some paperwork to do."

"I can do it," Will offered.

"Oh I couldn't ask you to do that," replied Juliet as she sat in her chair.

"Jules, Lassie did it to you all the time. I think it's your right as head detective," Shawn told her.

"Yeah," Will added, "and your boyfriend, who you haven't stopped talking about since you go here, wants to spend time with you. I know Chief Vick won't mind if you leave an hour early."

Juliet thought about it for a moment. "Okay! But call me if you have any questions."

"You got it."

Shawn grabbed his bag and took her hand. They stopped in to let Karen know she was leaving - Karen was already aware of that fact - and they took their vehicles to the hotel.

SHULESYGOODNESS

Shawn and Juliet sat on the bed in the hotel looking at Juliet's laptop screen. Shawn had been on Zillow for the last couple weeks sending links back and forth with Juliet. She emailed Amy, the realtor Karen suggested and they were reading the latest email confirming the houses they would be seeing that day.

"Buying a house is a good idea, right?" Juliet asked for the fourth time since they decided to buy instead of rent.

"It is, Jules," he told her. "We can do whatever changes we want and my dad and Gus kept talking about equity and investments. It's a good idea, sweetheart."

"Okay," she smiled at him, "then let's go meet Amy."

Three houses later and Juliet was feeling discouraged. She didn't love any of the houses. Shawn was like a kid, though, excited about what each one had and his enthusiasm always rubbed off on her.

"This one," Amy started, opening the lock box, "might be perfect for you. Three bedrooms, a nice kitchen, a deck."

Shawn tugged her hand as she followed him inside. Juliet loved the entryway. Amy led then around the house showing them the living room and dining room, the open concept with hardwood floors, the kitchen which was bigger than what they had and recently renovated, the half-bath, the family room that lead out to the deck and the fenced in back yard.

"Jules! The yard is perfect for the fleet of pugs we're going to get!" Shawn told her, "and a trampoline!"

They went to the second level and inspected the nice sized bathroom and two bedrooms that were impressive in their size. The washer and drier was set up on the second floor. Then they saw the master bedroom.

"Shawn, it has a walk-in closet," she said with a smiled. "And the master bath."

"I'll admit I'm a fan of the tub. And the shower."

Juliet walked to him and took his hands. "Shawn, I really love this house."

"Then I love it, too," he told her before kissing her softly.

"Do you really or are you saying you do?" Juliet asked skeptically.

"Sweetheart, I told you when we decided to move in together that home is wherever you are. And if that happens to be in this absurdly awesome house, all the better!"

"We're going to put in an offer?" She asked to be sure.

Shawn nodded. "Yes."

They went back downstairs and found Amy.

"How do we like it?" She asked cherrily.

"We want to put in an offer," Shawn told her.

"Great! Now we have one more house to look at," Amy told them. "Do you still want to see that one?"

Juliet shook her head. "No. We love this one."

"Then let's go sit down at a restaurant and get this offer made."

SHULESWANNABUYAHOUSE

After putting in their offer, Shawn and Juliet decided to be tourists in their soon-to-be new home and went down to check out Pier 39. They walked, hand in hand down the pier, past the different shops, talking about which ones they would stop in later to buy cheesy souvenirs for their friends. Shawn and Juliet made their way to the end of the pier to look out at the bay and across to Alcatraz.

“We definitely have to get your dad that Hawaiian shirt with the Golden Gate Bridge on it,” Juliet told him with a giggle as she leaned against the railing.

Shawn chuckled, “Agreed.”

They stood there for a few moments, taking in the view. Shawn turned to face Juliet.

“Jules,” he started, getting her attention, “You know I would do anything for you. I love you so much. I would go anywhere as long as it was with you. You are amazing, brilliant, a badass, and always gorgeous.” He pulled a ring out of his pocket and dropped down to one knee. “Juliet O’Hara, will you marry me?”

Juliet started nodding as soon as he got down on one knee, a smiled spreading across her face. “Yes! Of course!”

Shawn stood and slipped the ring on her finger before kissing her deeply. The kiss was beginning to become reminiscent of the one in Canada when the ringing of Juliet’s phone interrupted them.

“It’s Amy!” She announced before answering her phone. “Hi Amy…really?? That’s great!...Yes of course…Okay see you then…Bye.”

Juliet hung up and grinned at Shawn. “We got it.”

“We got the house?” He asked in confirmation.

“Yes!” She nodded excitedly before kissing him again.

5HOURSCANBEALONGDRIGE

Shawn just finished putting his things away from his weekend in San Francisco – and by putting away he actually just tossed them on the floor – when Gus knocked on the door.

Shawn let him in. “Hey Gus! Ooh pizza! Is it Hawaiian?”

“You know that’s right.”

The guys went up to the living room and set the pizza on the coffee table.

“How was San Francisco?” Gus asked. “How’s Juliet?”

“Jules is great and San Francisco was good. We found a house we love and we made an offer and we got it. And we’re engaged,” Shawn rambled out all the news. “But we got engaged before we found out we got the house.”

“You proposed??”

“Yeah. And our house has three bedrooms so when you come visit you can stay with us,” Shawn told him excitedly. “We can stay up late and watch movies.”

Gus took a moment to take in the news. “I’m proud of you, Shawn. And congratulations. I’m happy for you guys.”

“Thanks, Gus. It means a lot.”

Shawn was finally growing up. Sometimes that meant moving away from your best friend but he wasn’t moving too far and he was engaged to his second best friend. Growing up wasn’t as bad as he thought it would be. And doing whatever it takes was easier than it sounded.

Juliet laughed. "Um, Shawn, this is my partner Will Clark. Will, this is my boyfriend, Shawn Spencer."

Shawn took in Will. He was an inch or two taller than Juliet, slim but probably muscular. At first glance one might think he was a nerd. He seemed to not have full confidence in himself yet but Shawn remembered when he met Juliet. This guy would do just fine.

Shawn reached out to shake his hand. "Nice to meet you."

"You, too," Will nodded.

"We might have a problem if he doesn't like smoothies, Jules," Shawn told his girlfriend. "Even Lassie likes smoothies."

Juliet laughed. "he doesn't have to like smoothies."

Will went around to his desk, facing Juliet's desk.

"Fiiine," he huffed.

Juliet kissed him softly on the cheek. "We have some paperwork to do."

"I can do it," Will offered.

"Oh I couldn't ask you to do that," replied Juliet as she sat in her chair.

"Jules, Lassie did it to you all the time. I think it's your right as head detective," Shawn told her.

"Yeah," Will added, "and your boyfriend, who you haven't stopped talking about since you go here, wants to spend time with you. I know Chief Vick won't mind if you leave an hour early."

Juliet thought about it for a moment. "Okay! But call me if you have any questions."

"You got it."

Shawn grabbed his bag and took her hand. They stopped in to let Karen know she was leaving - Karen was already aware of that fact - and they took their vehicles to the hotel.

SHULESYGOODNESS

They arrived at the hotel and went up the Juliet’s room. She slid the key card into the lock as Shawn dropped his head to softly kiss her neck. She opened the door and Shawn’s free arm wrapped around her waist, he kissed her neck again, nipping softly at her skin as they made their way into the room.

Juliet sighed his name as his lips moved against her neck. The door closed behind them and he dropped his bag in the kitchen area. She turned around to slide her arms around his neck.

“I missed you,” she told him, kissing him softly.

He pulled away just enough so that they were very close talking. “I missed you, too.”

Their lips met again and the kiss deepened right away. Shawn slid his tongue past her lips, their hands working on removing each other’s clothes. Shirts and pants and shoes and socks were strewn about the room as they fell back onto the bed.

They separated long enough for Juliet to scoot up so that her head was on the pillows. Shawn crawled up the bed and hooked his fingers under the waistband of her panties, tugging them down her legs. He kissed her inner thigh, letting his teeth graze her skin. His lips trailed up her hip and across her stomach.

Juliet sat up slightly to undo her bra and pulled it off, tossing it on the floor before running her hands over Shawn’s biceps. He lips ascended her body, his right hand sliding up her side. He placed lingering open-mouthed kisses around her breast before running his tongue over her nipple; his free hand gently massaging her other breast. He swirled his tongue around her nipple, smiling to himself as she moaned and arched her back, her hands dragging down his sides. He may not be able to pay attention to anything for longer than a few minutes but then they were in bed together he had amazing focus.

Shawn shifted his weight and paid the same attention to her other breast, groaning against her skin when she wrapper her legs around him, grinding her hot, wet center against his boxer-clad erection.

“Jules,” he said in warning, nipping at her collarbone.

She grinned temptingly and pushed down his boxers. “I need you,” she told him, her voice slightly more needy than she wanted.

He pushed his boxers the rest of the way down and shoved them off the bed. He positioned himself between her legs and leaned down to kiss her slowly, sucking her bottom lip between his teeth. Juliet slid her hands down his stomach and further, her nails lightly brushing his erection. Shawn grinned against her lips. Pulling away to look at her, he slowly thrust into her.

Juliet moaned as he pushed into her, filling her and making her feel like she hasn’t in the two weeks they had been apart. Shawn slid into her fully, pausing for a moment before he began thrusting. Breathing heavier, he lowered his lips to her neck. Juliet ran her hands up his back, holding at his shoulders, moving her hips to meet his thrusts. She moaned as he thrust faster, his lips sucking at her pulse point. She wrapped her legs around him, changing the angle of his thrusts.

Juliet rolled her hips against his meeting his thrusts. His groan vibrated against her neck. Their moans and gasps fill the room, Shawn dragged his lips up her neck, kissing along her jaw line. He can tell by the higher decibel of her moans that she’s getting close.

Thrusting harder, her pushes her over the edge. Juliet moaned his name as she orgasmed, her chest heaving as her walls constrict around him, pulling him over with her.

Shawn lifted his head to kiss her languidly, their tongues lazily battling. Shawn rolled them over, kissing her again, his fingertips running up and down her side. The cool air created a chill and he got them settled under the sheets.

“I love you,” Juliet told them in the cute voice she uses only with him.

“I love you, too,” he replied, snuggling with her before kissing her again.

SHULESLOOKATHOUSES

Shawn and Juliet sat on the bed in the hotel looking at Juliet's laptop screen. Shawn had been on Zillow for the last couple weeks sending links back and forth with Juliet. She emailed Amy, the realtor Karen suggested and they were reading the latest email confirming the houses they would be seeing that day.

"Buying a house is a good idea, right?" Juliet asked for the fourth time since they decided to buy instead of rent.

"It is, Jules," he told her. "We can do whatever changes we want and my dad and Gus kept talking about equity and investments. It's a good idea, sweetheart."

"Okay," she smiled at him, "then let's go meet Amy."

Three houses later and Juliet was feeling discouraged. She didn't love any of the houses. Shawn was like a kid, though, excited about what each one had and his enthusiasm always rubbed off on her.

"This one," Amy started, opening the lock box, "might be perfect for you. Three bedrooms, a nice kitchen, a deck."

Shawn tugged her hand as she followed him inside. Juliet loved the entryway. Amy led then around the house showing them the living room and dining room, the open concept with hardwood floors, the kitchen which was bigger than what they had and recently renovated, the half-bath, the family room that lead out to the deck and the fenced in back yard.

"Jules! The yard is perfect for the fleet of pugs we're going to get!" Shawn told her, "and a trampoline!"

They went to the second level and inspected the nice sized bathroom and two bedrooms that were impressive in their size. The washer and drier was set up on the second floor. Then they saw the master bedroom.

"Shawn, it has a walk-in closet," she said with a smiled. "And the master bath."

"I'll admit I'm a fan of the tub. And the shower."

Juliet walked to him and took his hands. "Shawn, I really love this house."

"Then I love it, too," he told her before kissing her softly.

"Do you really or are you saying you do?" Juliet asked skeptically.

"Sweetheart, I told you when we decided to move in together that home is wherever you are. And if that happens to be in this absurdly awesome house, all the better!"

"We're going to put in an offer?" She asked to be sure.

Shawn nodded. "Yes."

They went back downstairs and found Amy.

"How do we like it?" She asked cherrily.

"We want to put in an offer," Shawn told her.

"Great! Now we have one more house to look at," Amy told them. "Do you still want to see that one?"

Juliet shook her head. "No. We love this one."

"Then let's go sit down at a restaurant and get this offer made."

SHULESWANNABUYAHOUSE

After putting in their offer, Shawn and Juliet decided to be tourists in their soon-to-be new home and went down to check out Pier 39. They walked, hand in hand down the pier, past the different shops, talking about which ones they would stop in later to buy cheesy souvenirs for their friends. Shawn and Juliet made their way to the end of the pier to look out at the bay and across to Alcatraz.

“We definitely have to get your dad that Hawaiian shirt with the Golden Gate Bridge on it,” Juliet told him with a giggle as she leaned against the railing.

Shawn chuckled, “Agreed.”

They stood there for a few moments, taking in the view. Shawn turned to face Juliet.

“Jules,” he started, getting her attention, “You know I would do anything for you. I love you so much. I would go anywhere as long as it was with you. You are amazing, brilliant, a badass, and always gorgeous.” He pulled a ring out of his pocket and dropped down to one knee. “Juliet O’Hara, will you marry me?”

Juliet started nodding as soon as he got down on one knee, a smiled spreading across her face. “Yes! Of course!”

Shawn stood and slipped the ring on her finger before kissing her deeply. The kiss was beginning to become reminiscent of the one in Canada when the ringing of Juliet’s phone interrupted them.

“It’s Amy!” She announced before answering her phone. “Hi Amy…really?? That’s great!...Yes of course…Okay see you then…Bye.”

Juliet hung up and grinned at Shawn. “We got it.”

“We got the house?” He asked in confirmation.

“Yes!” She nodded excitedly before kissing him again.

5HOURSCANBEALONGDRIGE

Shawn just finished putting his things away from his weekend in San Francisco – and by putting away he actually just tossed them on the floor – when Gus knocked on the door.

Shawn let him in. “Hey Gus! Ooh pizza! Is it Hawaiian?”

“You know that’s right.”

The guys went up to the living room and set the pizza on the coffee table.

“How was San Francisco?” Gus asked. “How’s Juliet?”

“Jules is great and San Francisco was good. We found a house we love and we made an offer and we got it. And we’re engaged,” Shawn rambled out all the news. “But we got engaged before we found out we got the house.”

“You proposed??”

“Yeah. And our house has three bedrooms so when you come visit you can stay with us,” Shawn told him excitedly. “We can stay up late and watch movies.”

Gus took a moment to take in the news. “I’m proud of you, Shawn. And congratulations. I’m happy for you guys.”

“Thanks, Gus. It means a lot.”

Shawn was finally growing up. Sometimes that meant moving away from your best friend but he wasn’t moving too far and he was engaged to his second best friend. Growing up wasn’t as bad as he thought it would be. And doing whatever it takes was easier than it sounded.
