“It’s okay, Ellery, I don’t want dessert; I’m full,” Connor said.
“You can never be too full for dessert.” I smiled.
After a few moments, the waiter set our desserts down on the table. Connor looked at me and sighed. “I’m sorry, baby, but I really don’t want this,” he said.
“Good,” I said as I grabbed his and my desserts and took them over to the women at the next table.
“I would like you to have these desserts on me and my husband. I couldn’t help but notice your incessant staring at him as we were trying to enjoy our dinner. Kudos for making asses of yourselves!”
The women looked away as I winked at them, grabbed my purse, and told Connor we were leaving. I heard him apologize as he walked past their table. I stepped outside the doors of the restaurant and Connor caught up with me. I put my hand up as I walked down the street.
“Don’t, say a word, Black. They deserved it. I don’t appreciate gawkers, especially when it’s directed at my husband.”
“Where are you walking to?” he asked.
I stopped and looked at him. “I don’t know,” I said as I threw my hands up in the air and laughed.
Connor wrapped his arms around me and hugged me tightly. “What am I going to do with you?”
“The same thing you’ve always done. Love me forever, no matter how much I embarrass you.” I smiled.
“My dear, sweet wife. I will love you, no matter how much you embarrass me, until the day I die.”
