After a very excited Sarah went to bed and Spencer left to drive Mrs. P home, Kate changed into her robe and slippers and enjoyed a cup of cocoa while she waited. She stared at her ring, not quite believing what happened earlier.
“Want anything?”she asked Spencer when he arrived.
“No, I’m still good from cake, thanks.” He sat on the sofa next to her and put his arm around her.
“I had no idea you had done so much shopping recently.” Kate looked at him, giving him a sly look. She finished her drink and set the cup on the table.
“Caught you off guard, didn’t it?” Spencer gave her a cheeky grin.
“You can say that again.”
“Does it fit ok?” Spencer indicated her ring.
“Perfectly. I love it.”
“Good. Did Sarah settle down? She was pretty excited.”
“It took a minute to get her back down to earth, but she finally calmed down. I read a couple of her new books and that helped.”
They didn’t know where or how yet to have a wedding, but the couple did pick a date. They chose the following Valentine’s Day.
Until next time,
