Hello! Welcome to Part 6 of Life Through the Years!! Before I begin, Im going to give a rundown of everyone ages and family relationships.
Monica and Chandler were married in 2001 and they have two children; Steven born in 2003 and Laura born in 2005. Steven is gay/homosexual and lives with a man named Houston. Laura was a rebellious, wild child, unable to deal with her brothers sexuality or the rules/values her parents tried to instill in her. She was kicked out of college and began working as a stripper in Miami. She has a daughter named Eva(born in 2031) who Monica and Chandler are raising, due to Lauras lifestyle and problems with drugs
Ross and Rachel were married in 2002, when there first daughter Chelsea was 4 months old. They had 3 daughters, Chelsea(2002) Mallory(2004) and Courtney(2007) in 2010 Chelsea died in a horrific accidentit was not caused by Rachel but a choice she made contributed to it. In his grief, Ross blamed Rachel and they began to argue, she turned to drugs to deal with her pain and they subsequently divoced. They slept together once during this period and she became pregnant. But Ross denied being the father as Rachel also had a variety of one night stands. It was later determined that the baby was Rosss and their son Scott was born in 2012. Ross and Rachel were remarried in 2025
Their daughter Mallory is married to Mike(2030) and they have two children

Phoebe was shortly married to David, but left him and began dating Joey, she became pregnant and there was question as to who was the father, it was determined that the baby was Joeys and they were married in 2005
Their son Tyler was born in 2005, and was a few months old when they were married.
Tyler is married to Brooke and they have one daughter, Amanda born in 2035
Girl Chandler is the only one left of the triplets(and is like Phoebes daughter and part of the group) because Frank/Alice, Leslie and Frank JR Jr all died(in non related accidents)
She was married to Ryan, but divorced him after he was caught cheating on her, they have three children

One final thing, if anyone has anything they would like to see happen, (a storyline) or has a character theyd like to see more of, let me know. I try to include everyone, but its hard to get them all in all the time J I also focus more on those who live in NYC so Scott and Courtneys families wont be mentioned as much, but they will still be in this story at times. I cant promise I can fulfill all your requests, but Ill try. *g*
Its now 2037, the baby who Mallory was Pregnant with was a girl and is named Heather(as I mentioned above) she is now 8 months old
Ross/Rachels house- May 2037
RACHEL: Sweetie, dont forget Molly is coming over this afternoon to interview us for her History Paper
ROSS: I remember, Ill be here.
RACHEL: she called last night and said she had a surprise
ROSS: probably another piercing, ever since that girl turned 16 shes gone piercing crazy
RACHEL: yeah, well well just have to wait and see
ROSS: ok, Ill see you tonight, love you(they kiss)
(Rachel sits down in a chair and begins reading the newest issue of Vogue) *she no longer works at RL by the way, she retired a few months ago-the phone rings and she picks it up

(Rachel hangs up then picks up the phone and makes a call)
a few minutes over we see her, Monica and Phoebe at a Restaurant having brunch)
MONICA: I cannot belive he is getting married
RACHEL: well she hasnt said yes, yet
PHOEBE: oh she will, its Lisa after all, they adore each other
RACHEL: yeah, youre right
PHOEBE: anyways, youll never belive what Channa told me the other day
PHOEBE: Dee asked her if she could get her tongue pierced like Mollys
MONICA: see what a bad influence your granddaughter is
RACHEL: hey dont blame me, I didnt pay for her piercings
MONICA: Ben and Kate didnt did they
RACHEL: oh god no, they just couldnt stop her once she turned 16.
MONICA: so what all does she have pierced
RACHEL: her ears, each about 5 times, her nose and tongue, but
PHOEBE: on no, not a but, a but is never good
RACHEL: she is coming over tonight to interview Ross and me for a history paper, and said she had a surprise
MONICA: oh you have to let us know, what that is
PHOEBE: seriously what else is there for her to pierce
RACHEL: well shes been talking about doing her eyebrow, but she said that is the last thing she wants done
MONICA: one can hope
(the three of them continue talking .)
Later that night-Molly is at Ross and Rachels house. Shes a really pretty girl about 56 and slender(she plays soccer, runs track and is a cheerleader) with shoulder length blond hair, with a pink streak in it(AN: now granted this is more of a current 2002 style, but just say that stuff is back in style for 2037 or something) she has her tongue, nose and has just gotten her eyebrow pierced.(Shes one of those people who looks good with the piercings though and theyre small and very tastefully done)
MOLLY: Ok Grandma, grandpa what would you too say is the most important thing in a relationship
ROSS: I have a question for you, before we begin. What is this paper for?
MOLLY: I told you, school
ROSS: I know that silly girl, I mean what is the topic about, why interview us?
MOLLY: its for history class, we have to write something showing how life today isnt that much different from the past, yes there are differences but people over time all feel the same and have the same dreams, and I wanted to focus on love.
ROSS: ok, well we can tell you lots about that
RACHEL: oh yeah, and Id say one of the most important things is trust, if you dont have trust you have nothing
ROSS: very true
RACHEL: was there ever a time you two didnt have trust
ROSS: oh yeah
MOLLY: was it when you met Chloe?
RACHEL: I hate that name
ROSS: Rachel, its been 40yrs
RACHEL: I dont care, I still dont like that name
MOLLY: so is she the one that you cheated on grandma with
MOLLY: so what made you two get back together
RACHEL: well for me it was a combination of things, I realized how much I Loved your grandfather, as dumb as he acted and as crazy as he could be about things, I truly cared for him
ROSS: and I realized your grandma was the most beautiful women Id ever known, both inside and out
MOLLY: that is so sweet. So what else can you tell me
RACHEL: well there was London
ROSS: oh yeah, there was definitely London
MOLLY: wasnt that where Aunt Monica and Uncle Chandler started dating
ROSS: yep, hey are you interviewing them for your paper too, because you should
MOLLY: yeah Im going to go talk to them next
(The three of them continue talking )
A restaurant in California:
SCOTT: so hows your week been?
LISA: pretty good, you know how I give a quiz every Friday
LISA: well, last week a lot of the students didnt do real well, so this week they came in to class and asked if we could have a review day
SCOTT: are you going to
LISA: yeah, they cared enough to ask so Ill do it. I like when they take initiatve these stuents are going off to college in a few months after all
SCOTT: I wish my 9th graders would get initiatve. No, scratch that. I wish they would have the initiative to talk about something besides whos dating who or why Katie is no longer friends with Ashley
LISA: awww, is that this weeks topic
SCOTT: yep, apparently Ashley asked out Mike even when she knew Katie liked Mike
LISA: the love triangles of 14yr olds,you have to love them. Now if youll excuse me for a moment, I need to visit the ladies room.
(she gets up and leaves-while she is gone Scott opens up a small black box and places a ring inside her folded napkin)
LISA: so are your students ready for the STARS Testing next week(as she is asking this she picks up her napkin-to put on her lap and gasps as the ring falls out) Oh my, what what is this
SCOTT: (Picks up the ring and gets down on his knee) Lisa, ever since the moment I met you I knew you were the women for me, the one I wanted to spend my life with, will you marry me
LISA: yes, yes yes!!!(they hug and kiss as the restaurant explodes in applause)
Its now June of 2038 and the day of Scott and Lisas wedding-everybody flew out to CA for the big day, the wedding is being held at a park, the ceremony will take place in a gazebo surrounded by chairs for the guests, the walkway is covered with flowers and there is a pond fillwed with ducks. Scott has picked some college friends as his best men, Steve, Houston, Mike and Grant are ushers, Lisa picked some of her friends as bridesmaids and Mallory is also a bridesmaid-everyone else is just at the ceremony.
RACHEL: here, let me straighten that out for you(reaches up and adjusts Lisas veil)
LISA: thanks, so let me ask is it normal to be this nervous
COURTNEY: oh yes, definitely. I remember when I excuse me(she runs into the bathroom)
MALLORY: good thing you didnt ask her to be in the wedding, shed have to go puke during the middle of the ceremony
COURTNEY: (walks back in) like I can help it, its part of pregnancy besides it always stops by early afternoon
MALLORY: what Annie
ANNIE: Im hungry, when are we gonna eat
MALLORY: after Uncle Scott gets married, remember I told you how we have a big party and dinner after the wedding
ANNIE: well how long til then
MALLORY: soon, now go out and sit next to daddy
LISA: she is so cute, I hope we have a little girl
RACHEL: wait a minute are you..
LISA: oh no, not even close, I just meant in the future
RACHEL: well another granddaughter is always nice, but a grandson would be good too, I know Ross would like that
COURTNEY: there is a lot of girls in the family huh? Well maybe Ill have another boy, I know Andy would be happy
MALLORY: so hes excited about his new brother or sister
COURTNEY: well right now I dont think he fully understands, Im sure theyll be some problems once the baby is here. Sarah was about the same age when he was born and it took her a few months to get used to having a brother.
CLERGY PERSON: (pokes head in door) everyone is here and ready whenever you are, as soon as we see you lined up well signal the organist to begin the processional
LISA: thank you (looks at everyone) well I guess this is it.
RACHEL: congratulations and good luck(leans over and Kisses Lisa) then her and Courtney go and sit in the audience as Mallory, Lisa and everyone in the wedding party line up.
The wedding goes by uneventfully, its a beautiful ceremony and the funniest moment is when 6yr old Annie sees Mallory marching by and screams out to 18 month old Heather Look Heather, theres mommy
The reception is filled with laughter, happiness, dancing etc everyone has a great time and the sweetest moment is when 14yr old Deidra walks up to Scott holding a pressed,purple flower
DEE: Hey Scott, congratulations
SCOTT: thanks munchkin
DEE: oh youre so very clever(Deidra is short for her age, her 11yr old sister Amber is already taller than her)
SCOTT: you know I love you
DEE: yeah I know, anyways this is for you(hands him the flower)
SCOTT: (stares at it for a minute, confused then suddenly remembers) this is the flower from Mallorys wedding
DEE: yeah! You remembered, since were not going to end up together, I thought youd like it back
SCOTT: (leans down and kisses her) you know what, you keep it
DEE: thanks, Ill keep it forever. Know what else?
DEE: remember that wedding and how I said Id never kiss boys
SCOTT Yeah, let me guess you kissed a boy
DEE: Im 14 of course Ive kissed boys, but last weekend I got felt up by a boy
SCOTT: wow, that was a lot of information I did not need to know
DEE; (laughing) you shoud see the look on your face
SCOTT: yeah yeah, well having little shrimps telling me stuff like that, tends to make one surprised.
DEE: ohhhh the bouquet toss, bye Scott(runs over to where Lisa is throwing her bouquet)
Its now January of 2039. In December of 2038 Courtney and Grant had a daughter Hannah Danielle. Ross retired and him and Rachel are on a romantic trip to Italy. AN: I have unfortonatly never been overseas(although I intent to travel all over the world) so all I know about Italy I know from books. They are in Venice
RACHEL: this is so beautiful
ROSS: I know, and Im here with the lovliest women in the world
RACHEL: wow, 70yrs old and still romantic
ROSS: yes mam, in fact maybe later tonight I show you how romantic
RACHEL: what gall you have, coming on to an old women
ROSS: thats right(leans over and kisses her)
RACHEL: it was definitely worth the money to ride one of these(there in one of the gondolas on the Canal)
ROSS: dont you know by now, no money is too much for your happiness
RACHEL: thats lovely, did you read it in a book
ROSS: oh thats nice, just mock my romantic gesture
RACHEL: Ross, I know you, you dont come up with that stuff on your own
ROSS: yeah, it was from a book. A book Chandler bought. Top ways to Woo Your Lover
RACHEL: (laughing) to woo your lover??
ROSS: yes, he wants to spice things up with Monica
RACHEL: but she hasnt been feeling good lately
ROSS: I know, but you know how Chandler is, hes a man, he has needs
RACHEL: so do you have these needs
ROSS: I may be old, but I still have them
RACHEL: well then, lets go take care of that problem
The two go back to their hotel and spend a romantic night, filled with love, candles, chocolates, room service etc . The next day they decide to go sightseeing. Now since I know very little about Italy and have never been, just imagine they are taking the train and driving all over the country to see various sites. They tour the country for about 4 days and finally on the 4th day stop for Lunch at a Café in Florence.
ROSS: Im getting to old for all this travel
RACHEL: yeah yeah, whatever old man
ROSS: hey, Im two years older than you
RACHEL: ok, I hear you old man. Hey, lets get one of those chocolate éclairs
ROSS: ok, but the ones with chocolate filling
RACHEL: of course, this is a vacation after all, we might as well live it up
ROSS: of course. What the?? Who would be calling us(the cell phone is ringing)
RACHEL: why dont you answer it and see
ROSS: hello, oh hey Joey. What, what Oh my god, well be on the first flight home(he turns and looks at Rachel with fear in his eyes)
RACHEL: whats wrong Ross??
ROSS: that was Joey, Monica passed out at the restaurant, they think she had a stroke
