Captivated by Him(99)

By: Terri E. Laine

I nodded and pulled the box from my pocket. I’d been carrying it every day, waiting for the opportunity to give it to her. It also served as a reminder of the future I wanted.

She tented her hands over her mouth.

“I know I asked you before, but I wanted to do it right this time.”

She broke every tradition and got to her knees so we were eye to eye. I opened the box and pulled out the ring that would make every eye dance that saw it.

“Will you be mine, my wife, and the mother of my children?”

She reached out and cupped my cheek, not taking the ring and further confusing me.

“As long as you agree to be my forever, my husband, and the father of our children.”

I grinned. “Angel, you’re stealing my thunder. I asked you first, which means I want to be all those things.”

She giggled. “You know my answer. It’s always been yes. You captivated me from the first moment we met. There has been no else for me but you.”

“Captivated, huh?”

“Exactly. Now, what do you think of the name Margret?”

And that’s how I found out we were having a girl.
