Prologue

—2029—

“And that, my children, is the story of how your father and I met. We were married two years later and had three adorable children. Even though, some of them are little stinkers.” My mom quirked and eyebrow at my two twin brothers. They snickered.

“Mommy,” I said, “do you think I’ll meet my prince charming that way?”

“How could you?” Snickered Tristan. “You look like a paper bag.”

“You take that back!” I exclaimed and threw a pillow at my brother. He ducked.

“Hey, hey, hey,” Mom said, “calm down.” We both looked at her and then glared at each other. “Tristan, apologize to Andie.” He gave Mom a despairing look. “Don’t give me that look, Tris. Just do it.”

He sighed. “I’m sorry that you look like a paper bag, Andie.”

“Mom!” I looked to her. “Was that even an apology?”

“No, it was not.” She gave Tris a disappointing look. “I thought I taught you better, Tristan.”

“Sorry, Mommy.” He looked away, embarrassed.

“Sweetie,” Mom looked to me and got my attention back. “You’ll know when you’ve met the right guy.”

“But how?” I asked.

“You’ll know, you’ll know.” She told me. “Alright,” She clasped her hands together. “Time for bed, kiddos.”

We all whined as Mom shuffled us out of the living room. We passed by Declan as he sat in the dining room working on homework.

“How come Declan gets to stay up late?” Ryan whined.

“Because he’s a senior in high school and you’re six, Ryan.” Mom explained to my youngest twin brother.

“Oh,” He said lamely, disappointed.

“Come on,” She said as she pushed him up the stairs. “Go brush your teeth and then I’ll tuck you in.”

“Yes, Mommy.” Ryan said as he followed me up the stairs. I hesitated at the top of the stairs and listened in to what Mom was talking to Declan about.

“Don’t stay up too late, Sweetie. You’ve got school tomorrow.” I heard mom say.

“Alright, Mom.” He said, sounding annoyed.

I heard the front door open and I scrambled away to my bathroom to brush my teeth. I didn’t want to get in trouble from Dad.

“Evan!” I heard mom exclaim before I started brushing my teeth. After I finished brushing my teeth, I went to stand on the landing again to listen to what they were talking about.

“Oh, you know,” Mom was saying. “I looked at some more places we could go for our anniversary, did laundry, and worked on some writing. I made sure the kids got ready for school and that they did their homework when they got home. Except for someone procrastinated and is still up working on it.” I heard her reprimand Declan. I snickered quietly to myself.

“I heard that.” Declan said. “And it’s only nine o’clock, Mom. That’s not that late.”

“When you get in your thirties, son,” Dad was saying, “anytime past eight-thirty is late.”

Declan just huffed. “Whatever, Dad.”

Mom laughed. “Well, your dad and I are heading to bed after we tuck the kids in. Go to bed before midnight, Declan.”

“Yes, Mom.” Was Declan’s reply.

And that was my cue to go to my room and quickly climb into bed. Mom and Dad always tuck in Ryan and Tristan first, so I had some time to get situated.

When Mom and Dad came in to tuck me in, I asked Dad a question.

“Daddy, how did you know Mommy was the one?”

Dad slid his eyes to Mom’s. “You told them, didn’t you?”

Mom looked away, embarrassed. “They wanted a story. And not one of the usual ones. What else was I supposed to do?”

“Make one up,” He said. He sighed, then looked to me. “I knew she was the one because she didn’t treat me like I was special, she treated me like I was a normal person. Not the heir to my father’s rich insurance company.”

“That was just a bonus,” Mom piped up jokingly.

Dad rolled his eyes. “Well, lucky you.” He sat down on my bed. “Andie, I know once you’re older, you’ll find the perfect man for you. But right now, all I want you to do is focus on school and your passions. You’ll have plenty of time to find the right person. I know your mom and I had found each other early in life, but I always thought I would have met The One later in my life. Like when I was in my late twenties, not when I was barely twenty-one.” He kissed the top of my head. “Just stay positive that he’s out there, waiting to be found by an amazing person.”

“Alright, Daddy.” I responded.

Dad finished tucking me in before they both headed off to their room. After the door was shut, I fell asleep, thinking of the words that Dad had told me.
