"I love you." Rafe interrupted softly, gazing into my eyes.  "I love you for singing with me. I love you for overcoming your fear. I love you for not leaving the beach when it was freezing, for listening, for talking, for fighting, for trying, for giving me your all, for trusting me."
	"I love you for being honest with me." I said.
	"I'm hearing love. Are you hearing love?"
	I couldn't say anything.
	"Marry me, Aubrey." My eyes snapped up to his. "I'm serious. Marry me."
	I turned, ready to leave, wanting to leave, hating his trump card. A last ditch effort to hang on to something that needed to be done away with. 
	"We don't work, Rafe."
	"You're not a little girl." He whispered gently. "You aren't naive enough to believe that love doesn't claim baggage. We all have baggage. We come with it part and parcel, things we carry along, things we downsize and improve on. Things we change and exchange. Come on, Aubrey. We were made for each other. You can feel it. I can feel it."

A lot of description and back story to read through, but I really like the characters and I am excited to read their story.
Thanks, CeeCee, it's a lot better now in the edit on google too
I just reread this chapter and I think it is such a great intro! I am left feeling heartbroken for Aubrey and her job, and completely interested in her and her life!! Great character development so quick :)

I like the authors note! I also like that you had a much simpler intro to Aubrey without all the tangents. Just enough information to make me want to find out more about her. I seriously love this book and the characters!!

Audrey definitely has some very strong opinions, which oddly conflict with her personal job choice *lol* Love the contrast though and it makes me wonder if she may end up compromising her personal values before we reach the end of the story.
                              
                              I look forward to reading more :)

Oh my gosh what a sad story about the babies. Great start to your story. Some of the things you said in this chapter I have never thought about in that way and make so much sense, e.g. why people should rather adopt than use Fertility drugs. Great chapter and well written!
