Whisper of Attraction(87)

By: Melanie Shawn

Brynn reached out and covered his mouth with her hand as her eyes grew wide. She obviously didn’t want the kids to know about their first meeting.

“And Lucy what?” Ryder and Izzy both asked.

“Nothing.” She gave him a look that said she meant business and she wouldn’t think it was funny if he spilled the beans about her wardrobe malfunction, which he had no plans on doing. It was just cute to see the fire in her eyes.

He smiled against her palm and she lowered her hand.

“From the first day we met with kit and caboodles and dropped keys.” He wagged his brows and her head fell back as she laughed. “I knew then that you were special. You had an energy, an authenticity, a genuine quality that drew me to you like a magnet. I tried my best to fight it, but I couldn’t help myself. I fell madly, completely, and totally in love with you. And I’m the luckiest man in the world that you love me back. So, I’m going to ask a question, but the ring is yours no matter what.”

“Okay.” She chuckled as tears fell down her cheeks.

“Brynn Daniels, you’ve already made me the luckiest, happiest man in the world, so I know it’s greedy to ask for more, but I’m gonna do it anyway. Will you marry me?”

“Yes! Yes! Yes!” she cried as she reached for him but the tray was in the way.

Izzy and Ryder reached down to move it and in doing so, Lucy was able to wiggle out of Ryder’s arms and she knocked the tray out of their hands. The breakfast went flying in the air before landing on the floor. Which worked out great for Lucy who jumped off the bed and started gobbling it up.

Axel started to clean it up since the kids were doubled over laughing however Brynn pulled him into her arms. “I’m sorry. I wanted this to be perfect,” he said against her neck as he held her tight.

She leaned back and cupped his face, smiling from ear to ear. “It is perfect.”

And like always, she was right. It was perfect.

The End
