“You’re getting a vasectomy. That’s final.”
Millie stared in awe at the boisterous personality of her children. “I love them so much,” She said aloud. “Never in a million years did I think that I’d be blessed like this. Never.”
“We do have the perfect family,” Zayne replied, watching Jordyn chase her older sister. “They’re so beautiful, just like their mother.”
“How?” She asked suddenly, “Did I get so lucky with you? I mean, I could have been dealing with someone like Zander for the rest of my life. We were such good friends. I thought we were perfect for each other.”
“I don’t want to hear that guy’s name ever again. He made a real stupid mistake.” Zayne snaked his arm around his girlfriend’s shoulder. “You know, I’ve lived a really long time, an I don’t think I’ve ever felt quite like this. Well, maybe once, but that was years ago.”
“Your first wife,” She whispered. “I know, you don’t have to mention her.”
“Don’t be jealous,” He muttered, close to her ear. “You’ve given me everything I’ve ever wanted. And a big beautiful family too. You know, there was a time that I didn’t think I was capable of being loved. I made a lot of mistakes and lost a lot of people I cared about.”
“I’d have liked to meet him,” Millie said. “Charlie, I mean.” Zayne had mentioned the boy once and only once. Never again, he swore, would he let himself get that raw with Millie. But of course, he couldn’t help it when he was with her.
He shut his eyes. “He’d love the girls. You know…we should have more kids.”
Millie shook her head violently. “More? We already have 3! No, you’re getting a vasectomy and that’s final.”
“You don’t want to compete with Charlotte?” He teased.
“Six kids is way too many, I can barely keep up with the ones I have.”
“I think I can change your mind.” He winked at her.
Thanks for the ask!
