Brynn's POV:

"Do you think that you would still be with Auston right now if nothing would have happened?" Jess asked me.

I looked up from my phone and stared at Jess for a minute. "I'm not sure. Maybe we would still be together. Maybe I would still be in Toronto."

She nodded. I looked at Elle as she let out a giggle from Hank licking her nose. I smiled. "To be honest Jess, I do miss him."

She looked at me. "Auston?"

I nodded. "But I wouldn't change what I have now for the world. I'm happy, with a man who loves my daughter and I. Plus I never have to leave Los Angeles. Therefore I never have to leave Elle."

She spoke up. "But weren't you happy with Auston? He loved Elle and he wasn't too ashamed to show you off."

I let out a frustrated sigh. "That's not true. Once Morgan got into his head he made sure that he kept our relationship a secret. So much so that he hooked up with his ex."

Jess walked into the kitchen and grabbed a glass of wine as I picked up Elle and opened the back door to let Hank run. As I closed the screen door, I heard Alec's car pull into the driveway. Jess came back from the kitchen.

"Maybe you're right Brynnie," I looked at her confused. "I think you are happier now then you were before. If I'm being honest, I could see you two getting married."

I blushed at the thought and laughed off Jess's comment. She smiled at me as Alec walked through the door, hair still wet from practice. He smiled at Jess and I as Elle struggled to get out of my grasp and run to him. He picked Elle up and looked at me. "Good afternoon ladies. I hope I'm not interrupting anything."

Jess laughed. "Not at all. I was just leaving actually. I was also trying to convince Brynn to force you guys to go on a vacation so I can steal Elle for a week or two."

Alec laughed and I rolled my eyes as Jess walked towards the door. "By the way, you two should just get married."

My eyes widened at Jess. "Jessica Jeffries!"

She laughed as my face turned a crimson color. Alec tried to hide his smile as he laid a kiss on top of Elle's head. He turned to Jess.

"Be careful what you wish for." He said as he turned back to me and gave me a wink.
