Hello! MissCarrera, the fan fiction maniac here! I know I already have a story going but I decided to release my next one earlier than planned. This story is the sequel to my very first fic, “Personal Affairs”. Now, if you haven’t read that one you can click the link in my sig to read it here on PP or you can find it on FFN. Let me say this though, you do NOT have to pre-read that story in order to understand this one. It will make more sense, and have more of a flow/connection if you do but it will read just fine without it. This one focuses more on Lightning and just like the last has a 13+ rating for mild language and suggestive/implicit innuendos. It is going to be a lot shorter than the original but I thought it would be fun to write anyways. I’ll stop chattering now and get on with the story…
“Oh, and come see the master bedroom!” Sally’s voice echoed down the hall.
McQueen’s parents, Jane and Anthony, had come to Radiator Springs for a short visit before the new racing season. After the initial get-together at Flo’s, Sally had insisted on giving Jane the grand tour of their new home. It was a custom-built and stately house on the outskirts of town with welcoming windows and clean grey brick. Ever since moving into it one month ago Sally had hailed the place like a piece of Heaven on Earth.
As the ladies’ voices disappeared to the upper floor, McQueen turned to the black Corvette at his side. “Girls and their houses, huh?” he chuckled.
“Ah, it’s your first place together, give her a break. Your mother was the same way. It’s not the house they’re really flaunting, more like the fact that you’re living together. It’ll wear off in time,” Anthony reassured him with certainty.
He didn’t want it to end though. Sally hadn’t stopped smiling since she set one tire in the house. She practically glowed with happiness. To see her so joyful made him share the feeling. As a male, it felt good to provide for his wife and keep her pleased. She’d turned sweeter on him than honey over sugar. She drenched him in “I love you” and let him push it further than make-out sessions more often. He didn’t want all that to stop!
“So, I know this is a bit out-there, but have you thought about kids yet? You know your mother would love to be a grandma…and I might not mind being a grandpa myself.”
McQueen jumped at the question and looked over at Anthony with surprise. He’d expected to hear that line soon, but not from his father of all cars! “Well, I, um…let’s just say I’ve thought about it, but talking about it is something entirely different.”
“I understand. Hey, I’m not trying to pressure you, but if you decide you want to then-.”
“I do,” McQueen interrupted Anthony’s trail of speech. “Really, I do, Dad. It’s just that…I don’t know how Sally will take it. She doesn’t have any siblings either so I’m not even sure if she likes children. And I haven’t got the slightest clue how to bring it up to her,” he explained averting his eyes to the carpet. He never liked to feel vulnerable and the idea of telling her made him feel very vulnerable.
“Don’t worry about it, son. You’re supposed to ask her those kinds of things. She is your wife after all. If you can’t talk to her then you aren’t going to have a very successful marriage,” the Corvette encouraged and his son’s eyes lifted from the floor.
“But do you think it’s too soon? We only got married like six months ago. What if she thinks I’m being too pushy? And how can I ever work a family and racing?” he questioned nervously. There was too much he needed to know!
“You’ve known Sally for more than just those six months,” his father reminded, “You’ll never know what she thinks unless you ask. As for handling a family and racing; you can do it. Your mother and I did, I’ll bet you’ll do an even better job.”
“Thanks, Dad. I think I will ask her about it. This is what I want so I’ll just have to go for it,” he nodded with defiance.
Anthony smiled back at him, “Now you just have to pick the right time to tell her. Judging by the light in her eyes, it won’t be hard to find the perfect moment.”
So, that was chapter one. Short, I know, but that's how many of the chapters from PA were. See, if you had read the original you would know that Sally and Lightning were recently married and little things like that but hopefully it still made sense. Maybe I'll get some comments from you guys? That would be great! :smiley:
