Bad Boy's Bridesmaid(260)

By´╝ÜSosie Frost



“We’ll figure it out,” I said. “Together. I promise.”

I sat with him a while longer, deciding on a lawyer and who to call. Maddox pulled me away when both Granddad and I grew too tired to continue. He took me home, rested beside me on the couch, and held me close.

“We’re doing the right thing.” He kissed my hand. “I know it doesn’t feel like it.”

“It doesn’t.” The shock hadn’t passed yet. “It’s not revenge. It’s not justice. It’s not…fair.”

“I know, Sweets.”

“Not the best way to begin our life together.”

“Of course it is.” He pulled me onto his lap, letting me straddle him. “It’s our life, and our first step is a big one. But I would stumble without you, and you know it. We can work through it…for the baby.”

Where had my optimistic, sweet Maddox come from? Or was he always there, buried in a darkness I finally shone through? I glanced into the kitchen, biting my lip. My mind busied itself with new plans and opportunities.

“Sweets?” Maddox asked. “What are you…”

“I should get baking.”

“Now?”

I hopped off the couch. “Of course now. You said it. We’re starting this life together. Why wait?”

He checked his watch. “Because it’s nine o’clock at night, and you got that look in your eye like you’re about to harvest cocoa beans.”

“So?”

He surrendered. “Point taken. What can I do to help?”

I pulled him into the kitchen, teasing him with a soft kiss. “You can start by grabbing me the sugar from the top shelf. Then you can tell me what flavor cake it should be.”

“Who’s the cake for?”

I grinned, wondering how my bad boy ever became so naïve.

“It’s ours, Maddox. I’m making a cake for our wedding.”
