Promises To New Beginnings (I Promise...Seri...
Are they really ready to start a family? His band is taking off, and she's wanting a family- will it tear everyone apart? Old fears reappearing... and he just wants to protect her. This is the 4th book in the, 'I Promise...' series.
"We'll be back." I told the group and led Mariah away and out into the front yard- I sat down on the porch swing and she joined me.
"Feeling ok?" I asked as I started swaying the swing with my foot, and she nodded with a smile.
"Well- what's on your mind? You've been a little distracted today." I pointed out and she huffed a breath.
"Sarah." She answered.
"Felix's sister..." I trailed off- and she nodded. Even though I didn't know the full story of those two- I still knew that Sarah had always meant a lot to Mariah.
"She and I both loved hanging out on New Years, because it meant, new resolutions, new chances, ways to change who you are for the better." Mariah smiled.
"She always told me, 'Live for what's ahead- don't worry about your heartbreaks or your past mistakes. Live for now.' I always smiled when she said that. She wanted me to know that it shouldn't matter if someone has hurt you- if you're stronger than their actions. She also taught me that." Mariah added- as a tear fell down her cheek and I wiped it away with my thumb. I pulled her close to me and we snuggled as we looked up at the stars and also saw the fireworks.
"Ten... Nine..." As people started counting down to the new year- Mariah sat up and looked at me with passion.
"THREE... TWO... ONE! HAPPY NEW YEAR!" Everyone chanted and Mariah smashed her lips into mine and I kissed back with a soft fire passion.
"Let's always live for what's ahead." I smiled pulling back.
"Always." She grinned- then I kissed her deeply.
