"Lucas?" Riley whispered into the night. "Lucas, are you sleeping?"
The only thing that came out of her husband's mouth was a soft snore, quickly followed by Lucas tightening his grip on Riley's waist.
"Of course you are," she giggled before glancing at the alarm clock on her nightstand which showed that it was 2:32 in the morning. For the last couple of weeks Riley could barely sleep at night. After all, she was keeping a huge secret from Lucas. But if you think about it, she wasn't trying to hide it.
More than two years ago, on their sixth anniversary, Lucas finally had enough courage to drop on one knee and ask Riley to marry him. It might be hard to believe, but Riley didn't answer his question right away which worried Lucas more than you could imagine. It took her a whole week to make sure she was ready to take such a big step and finally admit to herself that she did want to marry him and spend the rest of her life with the only boy she had ever loved. Although she still had to convince Lucas to wait a couple of years, considering the fact that the two of them were still in college.
A little over three months ago, on the 27th of March, the day Riley and Lucas kissed for the first time, they promised to love and care for each other, to try in every way to be worthy of each other's love, to always be honest with each other, patient and forgiving; they promised to walk through life together, hand in hand, wherever the journey would lead the two of them. But most of all, they promised to be a true and loyal friend to each other. The tears were streaming down their faces when their lips met for the first time as husband and wife.
And here we are, three months and twelve days later.
Okay, let's think again, the brunette thought to herself while Lucas' breaths tickled her shoulder. I've tried telling him, I've tried leaving him clues. Neither one of those worked. Although he did notice one thing, so maybe he's not that oblivious.
Riley lay in her husband's arms for a few more minutes just thinking. She could always just tell him, but for some reason she wanted him to figure it out himself. Until she came up with a new, final plan.
If he doesn't understand it this time, I'm just going to tell him. I can't keep this to myself any longer.
"Lucas," Riley shook Lucas' shoulder after turning around so she was facing him. "Honey, wake up."
"Five more minutes, Riles," Lucas pleaded before pecking her lips. "Just five, no, ten, maybe fifteen minutes," he begged pulling her closer.
"Lukeeeee, wake up, please," the brunette asked before kissing his nose. "Pretty please," she asked once more before her lips pressed against his.
"You always get what you want, don't you?" he asked between the pecks as he slowly opened his eyes smiling at her adoringly. He expected to see her beautiful face colored with the sunbeams of the rising sun, but all his eyes could see was the reflection of the moon in her chocolate brown eyes. He lifted his body just a bit so he could glance at the alarm clock before looking back to his wife's eyes.
"Baby, why did you wake me up at 2:57 in the morning? Is everything alright? Are you feeling okay?" Lucas asked concerned.
"I'm hungry," Riley confessed beaming at him.
Lucas' eyes went wide.
"You're hungry? You woke me up because you're hungry?" he asked furrowing his eyebrows, though the grin on his face assured Riley he wasn't mad.
"Yes. I want chocolate cake."
"I think we have some in the fridge, Riles," Lucas said brushing some of her hair out of her face. "Why don't you go get some?"
"That's the problem –we don't have any, I finished it last night," she whispered ashamed and Lucas saw the tears building up in her eyes.
"Baby, why are you crying? We will go to the bakery first thing in the morning, okay?" he promised wiping a few tears that had escaped her mesmerizing eyes away.
"You don't understand it, Lucas! I want it now! I'm craving it! Give me cake or give me death, that's my deal. Take it or leave it, it's your choice," Riley demanded as she sat up in their bed, putting her head in her hands, trying to stop herself from laughing.
"Okay okay, calm down. I think we have enough products to bake a cake by ourselves," he said rubbing her back. He sat up wrapping his arm around her waist and glanced at the clock again. "I'm not sure it will be as good as Mom's, considering the fact that she doesn't bake at three in the morning, I think, but I will do my best, how does that sound?" he asked putting his fingers underneath her chin and turning her head so he could see her eyes.
"It sounds perfect," Riley said smiling, although she felt defeated.
"Great," the blonde man whispered before kissing her forehead. "Would you like to help me or should I wake you up when it's out of the oven?" Lucas asked putting his black tee shirt on since Riley was wearing his navy blue one.
"I will help you, just give me a second," the brunette asked sitting up on her knees to give him a quick kiss before he walked towards the kitchen smiling.
Lucas was halfway to the kitchen when he turned around to say one more thing to Riley.
"You know, Riles, if I didn't know any better, I would say you're pregnant," the husband said chuckling as he entered their bedroom once again. But as soon as he stepped inside, he had to find something to hold onto at the sight of his wife.
"You know baby," she whispered into the night while her hand rested on her small baby bump Lucas hadn't noticed until now, "your Daddy can be really oblivious sometimes," she smiled looking down at her hand. "But I know he will be the best Daddy in the world."
Lucas squat down, and Riley's eyes immediately caught the sudden movement. She tilted her head and looked at her husband, whose hands were covering his mouth while the tears of joy rolled down his cheeks.
"I'm going to be a Dad?" Lucas cried finally revealing that gorgeous smile Riley had fallen in love with all those years ago. "You're going to be a Mommy?"
"I told you I was craving cake," the brunette whispered getting out of the bed. "I love you, we love you" she whispered kneeling down right in front of him before Lucas knocked both of them over while the tears of happiness streamed down their cheeks and laughter filled the air.
"So how about that cake?" Rile asked laughing while Lucas showered her face with light kisses.
