He signed it and then said, “I’m going to ask you again every day until you get sick of it and say yes.”
“Good,” I said. “Now read the next one.” He picked up the second one and as he read that one, tears sprang to his eyes.
“I can’t accept this. You fought too hard to get that company back and that CEO spot is so rightfully yours…”
“Seth, it’s rightfully yours too. You are more than qualified and you are the only one I would ever want at my side running it with me.” I’d had the papers drawn up to show him as co-CEO and the company as being renamed, Morgan & Hunter Inc.
“Are you sure, baby?”
I grinned again. I’d never had a happier day than this. “I’m as sure of this as I am my hair is red and my name is Adele. I’ve never been surer of anything.”
With a broad smile, he picked the pen back up and signed the contract. We officially owned a house and a company together. After he sat down the pen, he slid down to one knee and said, “I haven’t had time to get a ring with all of this going on, but now that you know I wasn’t just trying to get the company back, will you consent to marry me? I’ll buy you a ring today.”
I laughed and said, “I was never worried you were trying to scam me. We just have so much going on. Let’s take just a little more time before we jump into one more new thing, okay?”
He looked disappointed, but he said, “Okay, but this isn’t over.”
I took his face back in my hands and said, “No way. Not by a long shot. I love you, Seth.”
“I love you, Adele Louise Morgan.” I pulled him into me and our lips met. I knew without a doubt he was the man I would marry and he would someday be the father of my children. We just needed to get our lives started first and then there would be nothing left to do but move forward. I was looking forward to every single second to come.
