This is a short love story of a woman raising her young son after her husband dies in combat while serving in Iraq. Cindy struggles to pay her bills and manage the home that she and her husband lived in before he left for overseas duty. She meets an attorney during a confrontation between her and a cashier at the local grocery store, and the man defends Cindy and takes on the rude cashier. Cindy discovers that sometimes one can find a second soul mate in their life to help smooth over the bumps that life places before us.
The attorney Cindy met at the grocery store not only falls in love with her, but also her young son. As the three bond and explore their newfound relationship, Cindy’s life takes another turn and her prince asks for her hand in marriage. The story is short, but the emotions are strong.
Kyle sat considering Cindy’s words and asked, “Did I agree to raise three babies?” She smiled and said, “I am certain you will love all of them once I place them into your arms.” He looked her in the eyes and said, “You are very confident in your belief that I want to raise more children than the one I have already fallen in love with. Being an attorney, I am a good judge of when someone is railroading me. We have not discussed more children, and I think we should have the discussion now, before the wedding.” Cindy suddenly became angry and said, “Are you telling me that this wedding will be cancelled if I want to have more children that just Sam?” Kyle looked her in the eyes and said, “That is not what I said. I said that we should have the children discussion before we get married, instead of after.” She snarled, “That means the same thing.” He looked her in the eyes and said, “Does not.” She looked him in the eyes and said, “Does to.” he said, “Does not.” She said, “DOES TOO.” The lady sitting beside Kyle repeated Cindy’s words, “Does to.”
