CHAPTER TWENTY

Epilogue

Eight Months Later

"Baby, aren't you excited it's almost Christmas?"

"Yes!"

I grab Emma's mitten hand in mine as we walk down one of the main streets here in Primrose Hills. The streets are covered with snow, and there's a cold wind, but Emma didn't seem to mind. I think she was just happy to finally be back. 

"Are you cold Ems?"

"No."

"That sounds like a lie."

"I'm not lying." She says as her teeth chatter. 

I restrain myself from laughing, "Well, daddy's cold. How about we get some hot chocolate?"

"Presents?"

"We'll go get presents afterwards."

"Okay."

I watch as Emma skips ahead, the owners of the little shops greeting her by name. Her blonde hair had gotten longer and she had grown so much since we had left. 

"Daddy. Hurry."

She stands waiting for me in front of the coffee shop. I open the door for her and she steps in, knocking snow off her pink boots. 

"Harry! You're back!"

"Hello Elizabeth."

Emma looks up at me and then at Elizabeth. 

"Ah, yes. Emma, this is my friend Elizabeth."

Elizabeth smiles at Emma and extends a hand, "Hi, Emma."

"Hi." She says avoiding her gaze.

"Harry, you guys can sit wherever you like. It's been empty most of the day. No one should really disturb you."

"Thanks!"

I take Emma's hand and lead her back to a cozy booth in the corner and hand her a small menu. 

"Did you want anything else?"

"Hot chocolate."

"Nothing else?"

"No."

"Alright," I look up and turn to see Elizabeth already waiting for us to order. "Lizzie, can we have two hot chocolates?"

"Whipped cream?"

"Yes!" Emma says excitedly.

"Coming right up."

Emma looks out the window as snow is lightly falling once more.

"Baby, do you want to see your uncles tonight?"

"Yes."

"After we go Christmas shopping?"

"Yes!"

"Here we go." Elizabeth says setting down two mugs frothing with whipped cream. "For my two favorite customers."

Emma smiles up at Elizabeth, "Thank you."

"What's that?" I say pointing to the banana in her apron. She pulls it out and places it in front of me. 

"Oh, it's for you."

"I didn't order a banana."

"The woman in the booth in the other corner told me to give it to you. She already paid for it."

"What? Well...um...tell her thank you."

"You could thank her yourself..." Elizabeth says as she walks away.

I turn to look at Emma who has already managed to get a whipped cream mustache on her lip.

"Baby, I'll be right back."

"Okay." She says grabbing a spoon and eating the ridiculous amount of whipped cream Elizabeth had given her.

I get up and walk across the surprisingly empty cafe. It seemed Elizabeth wasn't exaggerating. As soon as I reach the booth Elizabeth pointed to, I hesitantly look over it.

"Hi." Edie whispers.

My heart beats and my stomach flutters and the blood rushes to my head. She was here. 

"Hi."
