I felt myself yawn as I sat on the couch across from Audrey as Asher lay fast asleep on my bump as if it was a pillow. Emmy was
flipping through the channel with a sigh.I heard the front door open the smell of freshly made bagel waved through the room. I looked over as Tanner walked in hold a brown paper bag. I felt my
mouth start to water as I looked at him. “Did you get me one?” I asked my eyes widening. Tanner smiled handing me the whole bag.
“It’s all for you baby. All of it is for you.” He smiled looking at Hunter as he walked in sweating. Emmy looked at him and raised
her eye brows.
“Hunter what’s wrong?” She asked putting the remote down.
“Let me just go get something from the bathroom and I will be right back.” He kissed her before walking to the
“Baby I want to go change if that’s okay?” I nodded opening the game and pulling out the warm plain bagel. I opened it as Asher
started to move around waking up from his nap. He looked at my bagel.
“Me bite Auntie?” He said looking up at me. I smiled putting the bagel to his mouth. He tried to take a piece off a piece to chew. I
ripped off a piece for him to chew and swallow making him smile and nibble on it. I took a big bite of my bagel almost moaning at the warm flavor and the melting cream cheese. I looked over as I
heard the bathroom door open. I looked over to see Hunter walking out in full dress blues making me smile. Emmy was reading something on the TV as he walked out.
“Emmy.” I smiled nodding towards Hunter. She looked up and I watched her jaw drop.
“Hunter what are you doing?” She asked looking him up and down.
“Something I should have done a while ago. I saw this and I thought you. Emmy I fell in love with you the moment I saw you. You
amazed me. I have never been so nervous in my life. I love you more than anything. I love Asher just as much. Even if he isn’t my biological son, he is my son. No matter what. My dad did the same
thing to me. He cared for me even if I wasn’t his. He loved me anyway. I want to spend the rest of life with you in my arms. I want you, I want Asher, and I want a little baby of both me and you.
Emilia, with you marry me?” Emmy watch him as he dropped down to one knee and opening the ring box to show her the silver ring. She put her hand over her mouth as the tears started to roll down her
cheeks. “Answer me please. Even if it’s a no….” He whispered trailing off. Emmy put her hands on both sides of his face pulling him to her kissing him deeply.
“Yes, yes, yes! Yes I will marry you Hunter.” His face broke into grin as he took the ring out and slipped it gently onto her ring
finger before he pressed his lips to the ring. I looked at Asher to see his mouth covered in cream cheese making me smile. I went to pull a napkin from the bag. I opened the bag, making my breath
catch in my throat. Emmy looked over at me as I stared at the little blue box at the bottom of the bag. Hunter looked over and started to smirk. “Ryan you okay?” She asked wiping the tears off her
cheeks. I put my hand into the bag and pulled out the box and opened it to see the most amazing ring sitting between the two red cushions. I looked up at the note that was put gently onto the
inside of the lip and pulled it open to unfold it.
“Oh my god.” I whispered. I looked at the neatly written letters on the white paper.
Ryan, will you marry me?
I looked up to see Tanner standing there in his blues. He locked eyes with me as he dropped down to one knee. “Tanner…” I trailed
off shocked as I tried to slow my heart rate from just seeing him in his blues.
“Ryan I love you so much. You’re my angle. You made me feel again. I couldn’t get through the day anymore. I wanted it to need. But
then I met you. You showed me what love really is. You showed me life. When you told you were pregnant I felt like my world one again. It wasn’t, it whole. I know you didn’t want to pregnant but I
loved the idea. I love you so much. You’re my everything. I don’t know what I would do without you in my life. As said before your kisses are like morphine, they get rid of the pain and there
addictive. Ryan when I introduce you to someone I want to say this is my wife Ryan Williams. The mother of my children. I love you, and I want to spent the rest of my life, marine or not, with you
and our babies. So Ryan, will you become this Marine’s girl? Will you marry me?” I looked up down at Tanner and bit my bottom lip looking at him.
“Tanner I love you so much. You think I saved you, but you’re wrong. You saved me. I didn’t want to trust anyone anymore. I wanted
the pain to go away. I didn’t if I could life to see tomorrow. But you, my brother’s friend, no my brother’s brother. You mean so much to me. You’re my best friend, other TJ because he kind of
beats you. But you’re high up there. If my daughter finds a guy you when she starts to date, she will be so lucky. Because there are so little men who really care. As for marrying you, of course.
It would be my honor to be your bride Tanner. I would be Mrs. Ryan Patricia Williams.” I pulled his face to mine kissing him, tasting the saltiness of our tears on our lips. He pulled back sliding
the gold ring onto the fourth finger of my left, were it would stay forever…..
