As soon as Ezra and Lena got to Lena’s house they were talking to Missy.
“Mom please can I move in with Ezra. I mean we are having a baby together and we want to be together.” Lena said to her mom.
“I don’t know about this Lena. I mean you are so young. You have your life ahead of you. Granted you are going to have a baby, but you still have your life ahead of you.” Missy said to her daughter.
“Yes I know that mom but, I have my whole life ahead of me with Ezra. I want him to be a part of my life in every way.” Lena said.
“I really think she should move in Missy. I mean it will be easier for both of us to take care of the baby and it’s not like I don’t live 2 minutes away from you.” Ezra said.
“Yeah I guess you’re right. I still get to see my grandbaby right? I mean I won’t be taking care of her all the time but I do want to see her.” Missy said.
“Yes of course mom. So does that mean I can move in with Ezra?” She asked.
“Yes I guess that’s fine.” She told her daughter.
“Thank you mom!” She said as she hugged her mom.
“Yes, thank you Missy.” Ezra said.
“I am going to start packing.” Lena said to Ezra.
“Okay I’ll come with you and help.” He told her.
“Ezra I would like to talk to you for a second.” Missy told him.
“Um… Okay.” Ezra said.
Lena left the room with a lot of excitement.
“What did you want to talk about?” Ezra asked.
“I wanted to talk to you about Lena. I just, I don’t know about you two moving in together. I mean she is 17 and she has so much life ahead of her. She could be doing so much.” Missy said to him.
“Yes I do realize that and I thought about that before I asked her to move in. I’m not going to keep her from doing things she wants to do. I know that is going to be hard for her to do normal stuff after she has the baby but I am going to support her doing whatever she can do.” Ezra told her.
“No buts Missy. Everything is going to be fine.” He said.
“Alright, fine. But if I suspect anything wrong I am bringing her home.” Missy told him.
“Fine. But I can promise you that nothing bad will happen.” Ezra said.
“I am trusting you Ezra.” Missy said.
Ezra then went to help Lena pack. It took about 5 hours to get all of her things together and it took about 1 ½ to get her stuff over to Ezra’s. Lizzie, Trista, and Cassie came over to help unpack. They were there for about an hour then they left so Lena and Ezra could have some alone time.
“This doesn’t seem real.” Lena said to Ezra.
“Why doesn’t it seem real to you?” Ezra asked her.
“It’s just, I thought I would be doing this, you know, 5 or 6 years down the road. Having a baby and moving in. It just doesn’t seem real.” Lena tells him.
“You know we are forgetting one part?” Ezra said.
“What are you talking about?” Lena asked.
“I am talking about this.” Ezra said.
Ezra got down on one knee with a tiny little black box in his hand. Lena had only a shocked look on her face.
“We have been dating for 5 months and I know that I am so, so in love with you. Yes I know you are young but it doesn’t matter. All I know is that I want to spend the rest of my life with you. I know this isn’t the most romantic proposal ever but if we’re going to be doing this 20 years from now then I want to be doing the same thing now. So I guess I should ask you now, Lena Alice Ruthford, the love of my life, will you marry me?” Ezra asked her.
“Oh my gosh Ezra! Really? I mean yes!” Lena exclaimed.
Ezra slipped the beautiful 3k diamond ring on her finger. It was princess cut and looked so adorable on her finger.
“This ring is so beautiful. But how could you afford this?” Lena asked.
“I didn’t have to afford it.” Ezra said. “This ring was my mother’s engagement ring. She gave it to me a few weeks ago because I told her about you and that I wanted to purpose.”
“Wait? She knows about us. Does she know that I’m pregnant? Does she know how old I am?” Lena asked.
“Slow down! Yes she knows how old you are and she is fine with it but no she doesn’t know that you are pregnant.” Ezra explained to her.
“When are you going to tell her that I am pregnant?” Lena questioned him.
“Umm…. Well I had this plan. This weekend is my brothers birthday and were having a dinner at my mom’s house. So I was thinking we would surprise my family and tell them then.” Ezra said to her.
“Are you sure they aren’t going to flip out?” She asked in a scared tone.
“Well, yeah they probably will. But I think we should just tell them.” He said in a calm soft voice.
“Okay fine. I am really nervous.” Lena said.
“Me too. But I think everything will be fine.” Ezra said.
“I am going to go call my mom and tell her the news.” Lena told him.
Lena got up and went and talked to her mom.
