"I want to thank you for agreeing to meet with me."

"Stormy, you created us," Marc said. "We always have time for you."

I couldn't help but smile. I adored these two. They had a special place in my heart, especially Happy. He had been through so much. It was good to see him with such a joyous smile on his face. "Well, I just wanted to check in and see how things are going for you two. Do you have any special plans for New Year's Eve?"

"Marc is taking me to that fancy new restaurant in Cade Creek," Happy said. He leaned forward and whispered like it was a huge secret. "It's like a date except not because we're already together. Marc says even if we love each other, we need to spend special time together."

"I agree." I shot Marc a quick look, the smile on my lips broadening. The adoration on Marc's face as he gazed up at Happy made me glad I had put these two men together. They were good for each other. "So, tell me, how were your holidays?"

An excited glint sparkled in Happy's eyes. "We had our first Christmas together. There were so many presents and food." Happy rubbed his stomach with a satisfied sigh as if remembering the food. "Billy and Rourke came over the day before and we made pies and cookies and fudge. And then after we opened our presents we went out to the Blaecleah ranch for Christmas dinner. Ma and Da Blaecleah said we got to be there because we were family."

"Did you have a good time?"

"We did," Happy replied. "I love going out there. No one looks at me funny or says bad things when I want to hold Marc's hand." As if to prove his point, Happy reached over and grabbed Marc's hand.

“Oh,we got mama a Snickerdoodle."

Marc patted Happy's thigh. "Honey, the puppy was Labradoodle."

Happy stared for a moment as if thinking hard, and then slowly shook his head. "No, I'm pretty sure it's called a Snickerdoodle. The darn thing weighs like two ounces but thinks its two hundred pounds. Makes me snicker every time I see it so it's got to be a Snickerdoodle."

 "I stand corrected." Marc's laughter was a full-hearted sound. "It was a Snickerdoodle."

Happy grinned. "Told you."

"So, any new year's resolutions?"

Happy's eyebrows shot up. "New year's what?"

"Any great plans for the new year?"

"We're getting married." Happy held up his hand, which still ported the class ring Marc had slid onto his finger when they became engaged. "Valentine's day. Marc says it's a special day for people in love and since he loves me most, we should get married that day."

I couldn't argue with that.

"All of Cade Creek is supposed to be there," Happy said. "We're inviting everyone."

"That's a lot of people."

"That's why we're having it in the park in the middle of town," Marc said. "Happy wanted everyone to be able to come and celebrate with us so we decided the park was the best place for the wedding."

"You'll be there, won't you?" Happy asked.

I watched Happy's exuberant face with amused wonder. "I wouldn't be anywhere else."

Happy smiled as he snuggled against Marc. "That would make me very happy."

"But don't forget," Marc said as he wiggled a finger at me. "Tell your readers if they want to join us, they'll have to read the book."

I laughed. "Now you're a promoter?"

Marc winked at me. "It's the only way for them to find out how Happy got so happy."

~ The End ~


See how Marc and Happy got together in Happy's Ever After (Cade Creek 1)

Happy O’Brian spent the better part of his life isolated from the rest of the world. He was told he was evil down to his soul. It was physically beat into him on a daily basis. He lived with it, believing that his ultra conservative religious grandparents were right until the day his mother was attacked. Seeking help changed Happy’s life in ways he could never imagine and showed him a world he didn’t know existed.

Answering a disturbance call, Deputy Marc Walker meets a man that shocks him with his gentleness. When he discovers Happy’s true nature, Marc wants to know everything about the man. He wants to show him the world.

When the past rears its head, and their lives are put in danger, Happy tries to do the right thing and distance himself from his handsome deputy. But Marc has other plans for his gentle giant and he’s not going to let a little thing like getting shot or having escaped prisoners gunning for them interfere with those plans. Happy will get his happy ever after.
