Brynn's POV:

"Sometimes I wonder if you have a brain." Freddie said to me as I laid out on the floor letting Elle crawl and run over me.

I smiled at him. "You're just jealous that you don't have a kid as cute as mine."

He scoffed. "Easy there tiger. Elle loves me so much I could fight for full custody and win!"

I shot up and looked at him through narrow eyes. "Are you threatening to take my child away from me Frederik?"

He shrugged. "Just proving a point."

I threw a pillow at his head and laughed at his face of horror. "What the hell was that for?"

I smirked and walked into the kitchen. I grabbed two bottles of water and an apple juice for Elle. I opened the bottle of apple juice before I heard Freddie whispering to Elle.

"You're mother is a meanie Elle. Did you see what she just did to me?" He asked incredulously.

I threw my hand over my mouth to muffle my laugh and walked back into the living room.

"Here," I said as I threw him a bottle of water and handed Elle the apple juice. "So, I believe you are here to talk about wedding plans."

He nodded. "Who is your maid of honor?"

I looked at him like he was crazy. "Come on now Freddie. I know you're smarter than that."

He scoffed. "Right, Jess how could I forget?"

As if on cue, Jess walked through the doors. She waltz into the living room and handed me my wedding dress and her maid of honor dress. I grabbed both dresses and brought them to the guest room closet. I closed the guest room door and locked it with the master house key before returning to the living room. I spotted Jess sitting with Freddie and they both were extra close to each other.

"You guys ready to talk wedding plans?" I asked them with my eyebrow raised. They both looked at me and nodded.

"What about Ryan and Alec?" Jess asked as she tore her gaze away from Freddie's stare.

"They're on their way home from the gym right now. We'll fill them in when they get here." I said back.

Freddie looked at me. "So you haven't picked out any colors for the wedding yet?"

I shook my head. "Nope. So I can't do bridesmaids dresses until I pick that out. Jess's dress is a silver-grey color."

"Then that obviously has to be a color in the wedding." I heard Ryan say from behind us. He smiled at everyone else and picked up Elle.

Alec came in shortly after and leaned down to give me a kiss on my forehead. "Talking colors are we?"

I nodded up at him and he sat down next to me. "Silver sounds like a nice color."

Freddie spoke up. "How about a certain blue. Silver, Gray, and Blue. Boom three colors."

Ryan laughed at Freddie. Jess looked at me. "Freddie may be on to something."

I looked at Alec and he smiled at me. "It's whatever you want beautiful."

I smiled. "Colors can be checked off the list. Bridesmaids dresses will be the same gray so they at least somewhat match with Jess."

The guys nodded. "You want all the guys wearing tuxedos right?" Ryan asked.

I nodded quickly. "I want you," I pointed at Ryan. "To be wearing a white tux."

Freddie and Alec started to laugh. "Why do I have to wear a white tux?"

I smiled. "Because It's my wedding and I said so. I've already picked out yours and I've picked out Alec's. He's in for quite a surprise. I just need you guys to be fitted for your tuxes."

Ryan continued to protest as I took Elle upstairs to tuck her into bed.

"I love you princess. Goodnight!" I gave her kiss on the forehead. I closed her door behind me and walked back downstairs.

"Ryan enough! White tuxedo. No exceptions. If I get to the alter and see you in anything other than a white tux I'm going to murder you."

Ryan looked at me in horror. Jess laughed. "Ryan you should show up in a bright neon hot pink tux."

Alec coughed and choked on his water. "Don't even bother showing up then." He said through breathes.

I laughed and walked into the kitchen. I heard everyone else chatting away so I took the opportunity to clean up a bit. I heard someone come in after me.

"Has Auston called to make a reservation yet?" Ryan asked me.

I turned to him and leaned back on the counter. "Mom has the guest book. She hasn't let me know of anyone else that has called to RSVP. So as of right now, no."

He looked at me and slid across from me at the bar. "Do you want Auston there?"

I looked down at my feet. "Yes."

He nodded. "Well, we'll see when the time comes right?"

I smiled at him as he walked back into the living room and turned back towards the oven. I sighed and wiped a quick tear off my cheek. I looked at my reflection in the window and spoke softly to myself.

"I need to see him one last time." I said quietly.
