Nathan's P. O. V.

Standing from my seat with Mehlani still in my arms. At me standing Lahlani turns towards me with Alonzo also in her arms. Although she still had a smile on her face she still gave me a questionable look.

Can't wait to see the look on her beautiful face. Cautiously I pushed the chair that I had been sitting in back giving myself some space.
Making sure I hands all of Lahlani's attention. Once I had I slowly got down on one knee carefully not wanting to put the baby down.

At this her eyes widened this may be the biggest I've seen her eyes. She looked up at placing her free hand over her mouth gasping.
Feeling my smile grow even wider. I reach into my back pocket.
My heart racing. Feeling the nervousness suddenly hit me 10 times harder.
Lahlani's P. O. V.

I literally have no words right now. I she really down on one knee for me?
Oh my goodness. I didn't even need to look up I knew we had certainly gained everyone in the room's attention.

At the moment everything stopped I felt as if it was just him, the twins and I.

"Lahlani... You are the most stubborn woman I've ever met. Since the day we met you've been. But it only made more attracted to you because of that. Sure we haven't even been together for a whole year but to me it feels as if I've known you all my life. I wish I did. You may tell yourself you are damaged but in my eyes you are beautiful." He smiles.

Oh god this is really happening. So many thoughts are going through my head right now.

"Yes, you have had a hard life but you will get through it and I will be with you every step of the way. I am so grateful that you blessed me with these beautiful little angels." He smile look between me and the twins repeatedly. Before focusing back on me.

Is this really happening? Is he really down on one knee? I mean I know we practically Skipped the Marita part and went straight to kids. But, I wasn't expecting this. At least not now. We do have 2 babies together but after my first marriage with him. I'm second guessing marriage I don't know if I want to go through it again.

But he's Nathan.

"I will try as if my life depends on it to be the best father I can be. With me I don't want life to be hard. I want to make it better from this day forward... From your beautiful smile. To your caring personality. I love it all... I am in love with you.. Marry me?" He smile a nervous smile.

I couldn't help but smile. I couldn't control the smile that was on my face. My heart melting at his speech. But what really made my heart leap was those 2 words at the end.

It was like I was frozen. He really just proposed. My heart was beating so fast it felt like it could leap out of my chest at any second.
What if he just wants to marry because of the twins. Because he may think that its the right thing to do? Because he feels obligated to.

No Nathan wouldn't do that. If he were to do that he'd do for all the right reasons.

My last marriage did not go so well. It was a complete hell, a nightmare. How can I be sure that it will not be a nightmare like my ex's and I's.
Because Nathan isn't... Nathan isn't David that's how you know. Nathan. Nathan and did are no where even near to being a least bit tad alike. Part of me screams at myself. Why am I over thinking this. If I want to be with him I want I be with him simple.

I know what I want and am going to do.
And I guess I am just going to have to live with the outcome of this because I just want to be happy. And when I with him and now the twins. I feel great. And with him is where I plan on staying.

Making up my mind I look at Nathan. My smile growing wider as his does. Wow I didn't think of was possible for his smile to get any bigger. Unfreezing myself I suddenly feel my head nodding continuously uncontrollably. "Yes! Yes I will." I smile trying to blink away my already watery eyes.
Without any hesitation he open the small box that was in his hand. Revealing the most beautiful ring I have ever laid my eyes upon. Care fully taking the ring out the box he rises to his feet taking hold of my right hand sliding the ring onto my finger.

"Oh my god Nathan I love it." I smile looking down at my hand admiring the ring. With Alonzo still in my arms and Mehlani all in his I go in for a hug.

Even though he only had one arm wrapped around me he still managed to sneeze the life out of me.
