She smiled and leaned her forehead against his. “Do you think maybe we can stop beating ourselves up over things we can’t change and make a pact to love each other for the rest of our lives and be happy for every day of them?”
He slid his hands over her arms, up to her neck to cup her face again. “Yeah,” he breathed. “I can do that.”
He pulled away, smiling, his eyes raw with emotion. “Marry me, Kell. Right away. I don’t want to wait even a day. Marry me here on our beach. Just you and me and our baby.”
“Our beach,” she said softly. “I love the sound of that. And yes, I’ll marry you. Today, tomorrow, forever.”
For the longest time they sat there on the steps leading to their beach. A beach where they’d raise their children. Where they’d laugh and love and remember how they’d pledged their love and made vows to stay together through all the trials that life threw at them.
They sat until the sun sank below the horizon and the soft colors of dusk settled over the ocean. And then when the moon rose and spilled silver over the water, Ryan carried Kelly down to the beach and they danced to the soft melody of the rolling waves.
