A year later
Jenny and Alex had been married for six months. It seemed like a lifetime ago that he had come to her apartment to apologize to her. After they had finally come up for air, Alex had asked her to marry him… and Jenny had accepted.
As she put dinner on the table, she glanced at the clock again. Where was Alex? He should have already been home.
Jenny picked up the phone to call and check on him when she heard the front door open. Rushing through the house, she smiled when she saw him.
“I was getting worried.”
He grinned at her. “I’m sorry. Traffic was horrible. I should have called, but I was in a hurry to get home.”
Alex walked over and pulled Jenny into his arms, kissing her. If he lived to be a thousand, he would never tire of his wife. Every day with her was special, filled with love, laughter and smiles.
“Why don’t you come to the kitchen for dinner? I just put everything on the table.”
Following his delectable spouse to the back of the house, he was surprised. There were candles lit around the kitchen, giving it a cozy romantic feel.
“Everything looks wonderful, honey. What’s the special occasion?”
Jenny slowly walked to him and placed her hands on his chest. “I went to the doctor today.”
His brow furrowed and he looked at her in concern. “Are you okay? I know you haven’t been feeling well, but I thought it was just a flu bug.”
Jenny shook her head. “Not exactly.”
Alex was starting to get worried. What was wrong with her?
“Jenny, please tell me what’s wrong.”
She gave him a hesitant smile. “I’m pregnant. You’re going to be a daddy.”
Alex stared down at his wife in shock. Pregnant? She was having his baby?
A huge smile broke across his face and he picked her up and swung her around. Laughing, he smiled down at her and kissed her soundly.
Jenny laughed. “I take it that you’re pleased?”
“Very much so,” he murmured against her lips. Alex kissed her until they were both gasping for air.
“I love you, Jenny. I’ve loved you since I first met you. I’ll love you for now and always.”
