By Design – Chapter 44

Best. Party. Ever. Am I a bit biased? Probably. But that doesn’t mean I can’t tell a good time when it’s all around me.

Eli couldn’t help but smile as he read the words Gracie had written about the previous night’s events. He had to say, he agreed with every single one of them. It had been perfect. The party had gone better than even he had planned. But it was what had come after her initial shock that had made his night one that he would never forget.

He leaned back in his chair as he thought about it. When it came down to it, this last year hadn’t gone at all as he had planned for it to. Gracie had not been expecting his proposal, that much had been evident in her reaction. Though, what exactly he had hope for this year, he didn’t know. When he thought about it now, he couldn’t imagine it being any other way. And he definitely couldn’t imagine himself being with anyone but Gracie.

There was a knock on his door, causing him to come back to the present. Gracie’s head poked into the office. She smiled at him.

“Are you ready?” she asked.

“Of course,” Eli said. He closed out of the article he had been reading and turned off his computer before following her out of the office. Ken was driving them to the airport and would be there again to pick them up at the end of the week. But for the next few days, it was no work, no worries, just he and Gracie beginning the rest of their life together living happily ever after.
