Thanks everyone so much for the constant motivation to keep writing. I'm slowly writing this story but I am putting this out because i've had so many requests.
This is the sequel to A Texas Reunion.
"YOU'RE WHAT?!" Maya exclaimed over the entire family.
"I'm engaged, we're engaged!" Lucas' arm wrapped around her waist and Riley couldn't help but smile. It was silent for what seemed like minutes, but in reality it was only 20 seconds.
"OH MY GOD! RILEY! WE'RE ENGAGED TOGETHER! AT THE SAME TIME!" The entire Matthews clan burst out into cheers, applause, and congratulatory hugs. Everyone gathered around the newly engaged couple but the brunette almost instantly knew who was missing. She gazed around the room and saw her father slip outside. The principal untangled her best friend's arms off of her neck and gently let go of Lucas' hands, letting him fend for himself.
"Daddy?" She slid the back door closed and sat down beside her father on the bench.
"Congratulations honey." His arm wrapped around her shoulder.
"Are you okay?" The brunette gently placed her head on his shoulder.
"I'm okay, I knew this was going to happen. But, it's still hard to see my little girl engaged and getting married."
"I'm 27 dad."
"28 now and you'll understand one day. When you become a parent, it shifts your perspective on, everything."
"You're not happy for me?"
"Oh, of course I am. I just, you aren't going to call me anymore when you need something fixed or done. I am so proud of you for finding someone like Lucas, just reminds me that you won't need me anymore." The back door slid open again and her mother walked out.
"Of course I am. I will always need you." Topanga draped her arm over Cory's and smiled. "I will always need you." Riley reiterated.
"Thanks mom. I'm so excited, I can't wait to start planning."
"Have you set a date?" The brunette's forehead creased and started laughing.
"Nope. But, I will let you know." The door slid open again and her fiancee walked out. Riley smiled and he pulled up a chair to sit in front of her. "Hey babe, when do you wanna marry me?"
"Geez, that's a toughy." His future in-laws laughed. The green eyed man slowly smiled and held her hand. "How soon can you plan a wedding?"
"I'm being serious!"
"I am too." The brown eyed girl stared into his, trying to find sarcasm. "I didn't ask you to marry me so we can wait a year, or more to get married." Mrs. Matthews awed and held hands with her husband.
"Okay mister, we'll talk about this when we leave." Riley felt some fingers playing with her hair.
"Sweetie, did you do something different?" Her daughter glared and let out a light chuckle.
"Well, my hair grew out on the left side. I chopped off like 10 inches. That could probably be what's different." Her mother laughed.
"Come on sweetheart," Lucas held out his hand, "Maya wanted me to come get you." His fiancee took his hand happily and walked back inside. Topanga gazed upon her husband and he sighed.
"There she goes."
"Have you set a date?" Maya sipped on wine.
