“So Skylar knows that you saw the video?” I asked as I sat on the couch with Luke while he held Chase in his arms. “Was she mad?”
“She didn’t seem like it. She seemed more upset that it wasn’t a surprise for my birthday anymore, but then she was fine after I kissed her. She always is after I kiss her.” He smiled and I face palmed. I looked at Chase who was asleep again. He was up a lot last night which is strange fro him, but that’s okay makes Luke’s life a little easier with one less kid to keep entertained for the time being. I put him in the little sleeper Luke had in the TV room and sat back down with Luke.
“So does Sky know about the trip to New Zealand yet?” I asked looking at Luke. He just gave me a look that told me Sky had somehow got it out of him. “I’ll take that as a yes. Man she is good. Come on she is probably already packed.” I stood up as Luke went out of the room and came back with at least five bags. Then came back down again with Zach in his arms, Annika and Saya following behind both holding little suitcases with Hawaiian flowers. Annika’s was purple with white flowers and Saya’s was pink with black flowers.
“ Hey Cal can you take Chase for me?” Luke asked tilting his head towards Chase. I nodded at picked up Chase in my arms. I picked Chase up careful not to wake him and followed Luke out to the car. We all got in the car and I called Mary.
Cal: “Hey where are you guys?”
Mary: “I’m with Skylar at the beach house waiting for you and Luke. Please tell me you have all four of Sky’s kids, especially Chase. That kid tends to run off.”
Cal: ”Don’t worry Luke and I got them all. We’ll be there soon.”
Mary: “Okay, we’ll see you soon.”
“All right Luke let’s go.” Luke nodded and pulled out of his driveway and stared down the road to his beach house.
“I can’t believe this place. It’s amazing” I was out back staring at the ocean at the beach house when I felt Luke’s arms wrap around my waist and his chin on my head. I closed my eyes and enjoyed it. “It’s so nice here.” I said feeling the breeze blow through my hair and cool my skin.
“Yeah I know. That’s why the guys and I brought all you here. We all love you girls more than anything and want to give you the best of life. We’ll do anything to make that happen.” Luke said and I turned around to face him.
“Just having you in my life is the best life I could ever ask for. We have great friends, the best kids ever and I couldn’t be any happier every time I look in your eyes. I love you Lucas Robert Hemmings more than anything and don’t ever forget that.” He smiled down at me as I hugged him around his waist.
“I love you too Skylar Rose Hemmings, don’t ever forget that.” Luke leaned in and kissed me. It was slow and gentle, but still full of passion. I gave into the feeling of his lips on mine and kissed back. Luke pulled away and hugged me. I closed my eyes and buried my face in his warm chest. I love my husband so much and I know he loves me. I dug my face into his chest even more. I loved the smell of his cologne and loved how warm he felt. This is where I belong and this is where I will stay for the rest of my life.
