All He Feels - Dax & Ginny(90)

By: Melanie Shawn

She was shaking her head no.

“Yes I am,” he insisted. Now that he held her again he knew there was no way he could handle all that open-relationship shit, so he really needed her to know how sorry he was.

“No.” She lifted her head and he saw her red-rimmed blue eyes staring back at him and his entire world righted again. “I’m sorry. I should have said something. I shouldn’t have left. I should have told you that I love you. That you are the only one—”

He crushed his mouth to hers, not able to wait another second to kiss her, to taste her. Applause erupted around them as well as several suggestions to get a room. He ignored it and kissed her so that he branded her as his, ’cause he sure as hell was hers.

When they finally came up for air he peppered her with light kisses and told her he loved her again and again.

“I love you, too.” She held onto him tightly. “I came here and I had a whole speech planned.”

“A speech planned?” He shifted back so he could see her beautiful face.

“Yes!” Her eyes widened. “It was going to be just like the end of Runaway Bride.”

She was so damn adorable he couldn’t help but smile. “I’m sorry I ruined your speech.”

“It’s okay.” She smiled back at him. “I liked yours better anyway. Especially the end where you said your life didn’t make sense without my toothbrush in your bathroom.” Tears were once again forming in her eyes. “And the part that you said you want me to be your wife and have your babies.”

He lifted one hand and wiped her face. “Well, what do you think?”

She was nodding before any words came out. “I think, yes. Yes. Yes.”

He crushed his mouth to hers again and more applause and declarations of “she said yes” were heard. And again there were suggestions that they should get a room. This time he decided he should take them up on it.

As he carried his bride to be out of his bar, he heard The Colonel yell out that he was off probation and Ginny’s head fell back and she laughed and he knew that if he could hear that sound for the rest of his life he would be a happy man.

When they started down the stairs she held on tighter and said, “You don’t have to carry me.”

He kissed her on her cute button nose because he knew that if his lips touched hers again they might soon get arrested for public indecency. “I know I don’t have to, I want to.”
