Reunited with the Lassiter Bride(66)

By: Barbara Dunlop

“Are you getting tired?”

“A little bit. But it’s been a fantastic day, don’t you think? Everyone seems really happy.”

“As long as you’re happy,” he said. “That’s all that counts.”

“I am happy, Evan. I’m incredibly happy.”

“I told Chance we wanted to build in the meadow.”

She drew her head back. “Is he okay with that?”

“He’s fine with it. I think he’s looking forward to all the little Lassiter grandchildren that’ll soon be running around Big Blue. He’s bragging about his significant contribution to the effort.”

“Felicia’s the one doing all the work.”

“He’s still taking credit.”

Angie went silent for a few minutes, swaying to the music.

“We can say goodnight anytime you want,” he told her.

Chance had a horse-drawn carriage waiting to take them in true Big Blue style to a little cottage in the hills for their wedding night.

“A few more minutes,” said Angie.


She drew a deep sigh. “It feels like the Lassiters are starting a whole new chapter.”

“They are,” Evan agreed. “And I am thrilled and proud to be part of it.”

“Something fantastic is starting.” She gazed up at him, her eyes shimmering in the tiny lights. “But something fantastic is ending too. I just need a little longer to savor the goodbye.”

He wrapped her tight in his arms again, with the huge sky above them, the ranch around them, and the joy and goodwill of their family permeating the Wyoming night. “Take all the time you need, sweetheart. Take all the time you need.”
