"Eikko, I need you to hear it. Just once, I need you to know it without doubt. I love you."-Eadlyn
You are always Eadlyn.
You are always the queen.
You are everything
And Infinitly more to me.
And I want him to make me doughnuts, just like his mom does for his dad. Even if I have to let out all my dresses.

But now I couldn't question it.
"What four-year-old knows how to threaten someones' life?" he teased.

"Every moment we'd ever had together danced through my head. His awkward stance the day we first met, and how I scolded him before the parade for biting his nails. The way he protected me when the fight broke out in the kitchen, and how my eyes flitted to him over and over when the boys were deep in prayer outside the hospital wing.

"But the truth is, love is as much fate as it is planning, as much beauty as it is disaster. Finding a prince might mean kissing a lot of frogs. Or kicking a lot of frogs out of your house. Falling might mean running headfirst into something you always wanted. Or dipping your toe into something you've been scared of your whole life. Happily ever after could be waiting in a field a mile wide. Or a window as narrow as seven minutes."
"Maybe it's not the first kisses that are supposed to be special. Maybe it's the last ones."
