Faye squeezes my hand when she sees the serious look on her brother’s face. I’m guessing he is about to tell her his travel plans.

“The wedding isn’t my only gift to you. As you both know, Darin has been handling the new office, but after today he’s back home where he belongs. With you, sis. After the mess with Claire, I need a change. A new start. Faye, I’m selling you my half of the house for a dollar, I can do that because we’re family. I’m taking over Darin’s position in Colorado. The business will run as normal. Darin has already given me his blessing, so I guess I’m asking for yours, Faye.”

“Oh, Eddie.” She wipes at her eyes. “I don’t want you to go. This is your home and as far as the house goes. I’m not worried about that right now. It will always be ours. But if the Colorado office is what you want then I say go for it.” She gets up and gives him a hug.

“Thanks, Faye, but you’re a married woman now and someday you’ll want a family. I only ask if you decide to move or sell you give me the option to buy it first.”

“Quit acting as though this is all so final. You’ll always have a home here.”

“Alright. I guess it’s time I let you two lovebirds get out of here. We’ll talk soon.”

“When are you leaving?” She questions as unshed tears glitter in her eyes.

“Later tonight, I’m flying back with Jen and Linda. Those two…” he trails off with a whistle and Faye smacks at his shoulder.

“Congrats, you two. I love you both.”

“Thanks, man. For everything.” I get up and give him an awkward hug.

“No problem.” I hug Faye to me as he walks off to join Jen and Linda at their table.

“That has trouble written all over it, doesn’t it?” My wife says with a disturbed look on her face.

“He’s a big boy. He can handle himself.”

“Speaking of big boys…” She rakes her teeth across her juicy red lips.

“I think it’s time we head to our honeymoon suite.”

“I dare say I agree with you, Mr. Lyons.”

“Mhmmh. I like the sound of that, Mrs. Lyons.”

We manage to sneak off without having to say any goodbyes or offer any excuses. I’m a man on a mission. I only have one thing on my mind for the rest of the night.

When we get to our hotel room though it seems Beans has other plans for us. As soon as I open the door the smell hits us.

“Beans!” We both yell in unison.

“That dog.” Faye shakes her head.

“It’s all those treats Eddie fed him to get that tux on him.” I laugh.

“How about I take him for a walk and you call room service and ask for some candles.”

“Deal.” She pinches her nose and waves her hand around as I get Beans on his leash.

“Come on, stinky.”

When I get off the elevator in the lobby, I spy Eddie being led by his tie by Linda and her girlfriend from the reception room to the other elevators. He doesn’t even notice me not that I can blame him.

I chuckle to myself, guess I wasn’t their type or maybe they are taking pity on him after what Claire did to him.

I get stinky butt outside and walk him around for about ten minutes then head back in to my bride. God, I love how that sounds inside my head. If you would have told me three weeks ago that I’d be getting married today, I would have called you a liar and laughed in your face, but now as I enter this hotel room and see my wife lighting candles and moving her hips to the soft music playing from her cell phone on the nightstand, I love it.

She smiles at me as I lock Beans up in his crate. I’m not taking any chances of him trying to get into bed with us. I’ve waited a long time to make Faye mine. I plan on enjoying it.

Loosening my tie, I cross the room and step in behind her, rubbing my hands over her hips and kissing her neck.
