I freeze. Disbelief—and overwhelming elation—rocket through me as I let go of the wheel and turn around to face him. “What?”

“I love you, Avery. I don’t ever want to know a day without you at my side.”

He reaches into his pocket and retrieves a platinum engagement ring bearing a large diamond that glitters like a piece of heaven.

A stunned laugh bubbles out of me. “You came prepared?”

His smile seems shy, almost apologetic. “I was going to wait until we were somewhere romantic and tropical. I wanted it to be perfect for you, so I’ve been trying to think of the right words to say when I gave this ring to you.”

I shake my head as I watch him slip the gorgeous ring onto my finger. My heart is soaring, my love for him spilling over in a rush of happy tears. “You already said the perfect thing. You said you love me.”

“Yes, I do. I’m going to love you forever, Avery.”

“Good,” I tell him, twining my arms around his neck. “Because forever is only the start of how long I’m going to love you.”
