“Were you scared your first time?”
“I probably should have been, but no. I was eager; anxious to be considered an adult, part of that mysterious world others belonged to.” Sean huffed a laugh. “Wham, bam, thank you, ma’am.”
Elijah winced even as he laughed, too.
“But I’m older and hopefully wiser now.”
“Wise enough to be scared this time?”
“No.” Sean cupped his hands around Elijah’s face and looked deeply into his eyes. “Wise enough to understand exactly what I’m doing this time. Wise enough to know that this time when I get married, it’s going to last forever.”
