Some people don’t get to experience it in their lifetime. Some are just scared to. I can say that I’m blessed to have experienced it with Morgan. I knew the moment I’d laid my brown eyes on him that he would be my soulmate. After everything we have been through, it just made my love for him even stronger.
Now that the two of us are living the family life, it feels good but a tiny part of me sort of misses the thrill-seeking couple that we used to be. Not the running after guns and getting shot part; just the spontaneous action we used to have when we first started dating.
Once Morgan and I ate dinner, I let him get some rest. I knew he was tired from work. He’s been at the station nonstop for the past two weeks on a case he couldn’t discuss. Majority of his cases he couldn’t talk about, but he’ll give hints to some of them and I’ll figure out what they are. This one, he has had a tight lip on, which I wasn’t mad about but it did make me feel some type of way. We tell each other everything, so this was sort of bittersweet that this part of our lives we couldn’t share.
Within minutes, Morgan was back asleep and with MJ with my parents, I decided to get some work done. I did have a project due soon, so this was a good time to get some of it done.
I glanced at my computer screen wondering where to begin when my phone rang. My future sister-in-law, Tamara, was calling. Although she doesn’t know it yet, I know my brother will propose to her soon.
“Hey Tam, what’s up?”
“Hey Hales, I was just calling.”
“Uh-no, what has my big-headed brother done now?”
Tamara laughed. “Lamar hasn’t done anything, Hales. He’s still the perfect gentleman.”
“He better be.”
“I was seeing what you were up to. My mind is all over the place because of work and I just needed someone to talk to.”
“Say no more, Tam. Want to go to our usual spot?”
“Yes! Thank you.”
“No prob. I’ll see you in a few.”
After we disconnected, I shut down my computer and walked into my bedroom. I heard Morgan softly snoring as I went up to him. I gave him a quick peck on the lips and he slowly opened his eyes.
“Hey, just letting you know, I’m going out with Tam for a bit.”
“I thought you had work to do?”
“It can wait. My mind wasn’t on it anyway.”
“Okay, don’t stay out too long. I’ll be wide awake when you return.”
“Definitely. We should take advantage of the alone time we have now.”
I smiled as Morgan leaned over to kiss me.
“Maybe I should call Tam and cancel.”
“Go, baby. I’m not going anywhere.”
I kissed him again and went to put on my shoes. After all of these years, Morgan still looks good. His blue eyes were still clear and beautiful like a deep blue ocean. His blond hair was still short and cropped, but his athletic body has changed a bit. Since he joined the force, he has bulked up a bit. I didn’t think he could get any sexier, but he definitely has.
“You’re thinking about doing me this second, aren’t you?”
I laughed. “You still cocky as ever.”
“You’re not denying it, though.”
I gave him a sexy smile. “I guess you’ll know soon enough, hubby.”
I leaned down and kissed him again before grabbing my wristlet and keys. Hopefully, my visit with Tamara doesn’t take too long because Morgan and I have some much-needed alone time to share.
