TOW it all ends

This is my first fanfic and I have to say I am rubbish at writing.

This is how I think the very last episode ever of Friends should go. Be warned it does not have a happy ending.

Ross and Rachel are dating again but are moving to get away from it all. Monica and Chandler got married on 14th June (it’ll

Be relevant later, promise) and have a daughter. Enjoy!

[Monica and Chandlers apartment. Chandler is playing with a little girl [Aimee] she’s about 2/3. Monica is cooking what looks like a big dinner]

Monica Chandler, could you come over here and give me a hand?

Chandler Sure babe, what ya doin?

Monica Duh! Making a “Farewell” meal for Ross and Rachel

Chandler Wow, I can’t believe their actually gonna move...

Monica I can’t believe they actually got back together...but anyway, they’re not going

Too far, and they said they’d visit...

Chandler You’re really gonna miss them aren’t you?

[Monica nods her head and starts to cry, Chandler goes over and hugs her, Aimee runs over and they all hug]

Opening Credits

There is a screech of brakes and we see the cab spin out of control. We see Monica and Chandler hugging and screaming. We see the cab ram into their apartment block and burst into flames

Cut to Joeys, Joey, Phoebe and Aimee hear a loud bang

Joey what was that?

The camera zooms out, outside, burning car, people rushing towards it. Fade to black
