“I love you, TJ Walker.” Her eyes were brimming with tears. “These are happy tears by the way. I love you so much, you don’t even know. You are already my perfect man. You will always be my perfect man.”
“Are you just saying that?” I said, knowing I would break something, if she said yes.
“No.” She grinned and stepped towards me and gave me a kiss. “Nonno left me a letter. He told me off.” She laughed. “He wrote that he knew I would be pissed at you and most probably would stop talking to you. He said he knew I would think you didn’t love or trust me enough. He told me that I should be proud to be with a man that loved and respected him enough to uphold his promise. He said that I shouldn’t be an idiot and I should be grateful to him for getting us to together and to not mess it up.” She laughed and touched my face. “I laughed and I cried reading his letter. Oh TJ, I still hurt so much, but I need you to know. I want you to know. I love you more than anything. I always have. I always will. You are my everything. Nothing can ever part us. You know that right?”
“I know.” I grinned at her and kissed her hard. “I know that we’re it. Forever. I don’t want you for four weeks, Mila. I want you for the rest of my life. Will you marry me and make me the happiest man in the world?”
“Oh yes, TJ. Oh yes. I’ll be your forever wife.” And then I kissed her good and hard and promised myself that I would never let her go.”
