“Mine, too.” I take her hand in mine, loving the feel of her engagement ring against my finger. “Finding out you’re pregnant, you agreeing to marry me, and there’s still more good stuff to come.”
“More?” She glances at me with intrigue.
“Well, we have food in the car. And then fifth base, baby, remember? I plan to get you home, strip you naked, hit that home run, and then eat cheesecake off your body.”
Laughter bursts from her.
“What?” I say mock innocently.
She stops and stands in front of me, smiling up at me. “Nothing.” She shakes her head. “Just…don’t ever change, Gabriel Evans. Always be you because you’re perfect, and I love you.”
I tightly wrap my arms around her, finally feeling the acceptance that I didn’t know I’d been looking for all this time. Full of love for this incredible woman in my arms. A love that I didn’t know existed until her.
She might have broken me on that fateful day, right here in this street, when our worlds came crashing together, but she’s also fixed me, too. In more ways than one.
I can’t imagine my life without her now.
Thank fuck I don’t have to.
