Bearfoot and Pregnant(43)

By: Milly Taiden

“Oh, Dad, I almost forgot. Talen and I are building a house in a very remote location. It’ll be somewhat difficult to reach me, but I have a special phone to give you that is a step above facetiming. It actually projects an image of me. It’s cool.”

“Can we not visit? I will fly anywhere to see my grandchild, and you. It’s not like you’re moving to another planet.”

“We’ll talk about all that later.” When she could figure out how to tell her dad she really was going to another planet without him wanting to have her committed. “I bet dinner is just about ready.” Victoria and Talen stepped into the room.

“Dinner is ready, if everyone is,” Victoria said, looking from her dad to her and back. “Is everything okay?”

Cassie smiled. “Yeah, everything is more than okay.” Before she and her father stepped into the hall, Cassie hugged her father. “Dad, I love you, too.”

She stopped and let others go ahead before walking into Talen’s open arms for a hug. “Thank you for being here with me.”

He cupped her cheek and stared deep into her eyes. “I will always be by your side. Always, love.”

Emotions overflowed inside her. She hugged him tighter and let the worry and stress of most of her life slide off her shoulders. She was free to be herself and know that she’d found the man who would cherish her exactly as she was. It was finally her turn to be happy and she was going to embrace it.

“I love you,” she said to Talen softly. “I didn’t think it possible, but our one night together has made me the happiest woman in every known galaxy.” She met his gaze and smiled. “I’ll miss my dad, but I’m glad I have you now.”

“You have me and our cub. We’ll always take care of you.”

That was the sweetest promise she’d ever heard, and it filled her with joy.
