Chapter 4

The next day, Michael signed the papers making the investment official. They were in the conference room. Ethan stood behind Jennifer with his arms around her waist from behind. Their fathers shook hands and he shook hands with James. He shook hands with her as well.

“See you later, son,” Michael said.

“See ya Dad,” Ethan said. Michael left. David and James went out the door. Jennifer felt lips on her neck.

“Mmmm,” Jennifer said.

“You smell so good, baby,” Ethan said.

“I love how you smell as well,” Jennifer said.

“Want to eat dinner with me tonight?” Ethan asked.

“I’d love to,” Jennifer said.

“I want to show you my club as well,” Ethan said.

“Oh I better see if it needs redone,” Jennifer said.

“I think it does,” Ethan said.

“We will see,” Jennifer said.

“Jen?” Ethan said.

“Hmmm?” Jennifer said.

“I know it’s been three weeks since we met and things became official but I just want you to know that I love you,” Ethan said. She looked up at him. He was gazing at her.

“You love me?” Jennifer asked.

“Yes I do, you can say it when you are ready, I just wanted you to know,” Ethan said.

“Ethan, I love you too,” Jennifer said. He smiled and kissed her softly. The kiss deepened and their tongues fought in their mouths. He held her close. She held onto him.

“Mmm baby, we should stop, I do not want to lose control here,” Ethan said.

“Oh okay,” Jennifer said.

“Baby?” Ethan asked.

“I get it, okay,” Jennifer said.

“Jen,” Ethan said.

“I should get back to work,” Jennifer said.

“No Jen, let’s talk about this,” Ethan said.

“What’s to talk about,” Jennifer said.

“The fact that you are pulling away from me,” Ethan said.

“You don’t want me,” Jennifer said.

“Oh god yes I do more than anything but we are in the conference room at your company,” Ethan said.

“Oh good point,” Jennifer said.

“And you have not had your first time yet and I want you to be ready and I want it to be special,” Ethan said.

“Oh Ethan,” Jennifer said. She hugged him. He held her close and buried his face in her neck.

“Unless you are waiting for marriage,” Ethan said.

“What if I was,” Jennifer said.

“I would wait for you,” Ethan said.

“Who said I was marrying you,” Jennifer said.

“So you don’t see this being anything more than dating, me calling you baby, us being official, you don’t see it leading to marriage?” Ethan asked.

“I do,” Jennifer said.

“Jen, I love you, I want a life with you, I dream about it,” Ethan said.

“You dream about me?” Jennifer asked.

“Ever since I first saw your picture,” Ethan said.

“What are the dreams about?” Jennifer asked.

“Let’s see, we are kissing a lot, making love, there was one with us married and had two kids, a boy and a girl, we just were living a happy life,” Ethan said.

“Sounds amazing,” Jennifer said.

“We could make it happen sooner than later,” Ethan said.

“What,” Jennifer said.

“We could just get married and start our life together,” Ethan said.

“We just started dating three weeks ago,” Jennifer said.

“I know, baby, but I told you that I see forever with you,” Ethan said.

“So are you asking me to marry you?” Jennifer asked.

“If I was, what would you say?” Ethan asked.

“Um, maybe,” Jennifer said.

“Maybe?” Ethan asked.

“All right, I would say yes,” Jennifer said.

“You would?” Ethan asked.

“Yeah, I do see forever with you,” Jennifer said.

“Jennifer Aspen, will you marry me and be my forever?” Ethan asked.

“Yes if you be mine,” Jennifer said.

“God yes I will be,” Ethan said. He crashed his mouth to hers in a deep kiss. She held onto him.
