Some people don’t get to experience it in their lifetime. Some are just scared to. I can say that I’m blessed to have experienced it with Morgan. I knew the moment I’d laid my brown eyes on him that he would be my soulmate. After everything we have been through, it just made my love for him even stronger.
Now that the two of us are living the family life, it feels good but a tiny part of me sort of misses the thrill-seeking couple that we used to be. Not the running after guns and getting shot part; just the spontaneous action we used to have when we first started dating.
Once Morgan and I ate dinner, I let him get some rest. I knew he was tired from work. He’s been at the station nonstop for the past two weeks on a case he couldn’t discuss. Majority of his cases he couldn’t talk about, but he’ll give hints to some of them and I’ll figure out what they are. This one, he has had a tight lip on, which I wasn’t mad about but it did make me feel some type of way. We tell each other everything, so this was sort of bittersweet that this part of our lives we couldn’t share.
Within minutes, Morgan was back asleep and with MJ with my parents, I decided to get some work done. I did have a project due soon, so this was a good time to get some of it done.
I glanced at my computer screen wondering where to begin when my phone rang. My future sister-in-law, Tamara, was calling. Although she doesn’t know it yet, I know my brother will propose to her soon.
He better.
“Hey Tam, what’s up?”
“Hey Hales, I was just calling.”
“Uh-no, what has my big-headed brother done now?”
Tamara laughed. “Lamar hasn’t done anything, Hales. He’s still the perfect gentleman.”
“He better be.”
“I was seeing what you were up to. My mind is all over the place because of work and I just needed someone to talk to.”
“Say no more, Tam. Want to go to our usual spot?”
“Yes! Thank you.”
“No prob. I’ll see you in a few.”
After we disconnected, I shut down my computer and walked into my bedroom. I heard Morgan softly snoring as I went up to him. I gave him a quick peck on the lips and he slowly opened his eyes.
“Hey, just letting you know, I’m going out with Tam for a bit.”
“I thought you had work to do?”
“It can wait. My mind wasn’t on it anyway.”
“Okay, don’t stay out too long. I’ll be wide awake when you return.”
“Definitely. We should take advantage of the alone time we have now.”
I smiled as Morgan leaned over to kiss me.
“Maybe I should call Tam and cancel.”
“Go, baby. I’m not going anywhere.”
I kissed him again and went to put on my shoes. After all of these years, Morgan still looks good. His blue eyes were still clear and beautiful like a deep blue ocean. His blond hair was still short and cropped, but his athletic body has changed a bit. Since he joined the force, he has bulked up a bit. I didn’t think he could get any sexier, but he definitely has.
“You’re thinking about doing me this second, aren’t you?”
I laughed. “You still cocky as ever.”
“You’re not denying it, though.”
I gave him a sexy smile. “I guess you’ll know soon enough, hubby.”
I leaned down and kissed him again before grabbing my wristlet and keys. Hopefully, my visit with Tamara doesn’t take too long because Morgan and I have some much-needed alone time to share.

Twenty minutes later and I was parking in front of Lighthouse. This place is Tamara and mine’s go-to spot when we needed to unwind from our busy schedules. With Tamara being a financial consultant, I know her job is very demanding, so maybe I’m doing her a favor by meeting with her.
I walked into the lounge and saw Tamara seated in a booth near the bar. I went over to her and gave her a hug.
“Hey, honey. You look good.” I said and sat down.
“I may not look it, but I’m stressed out. I never realized how demanding this new position is. I feel as if I’m working 24/7. I’m surprised Lamar hasn’t been complaining to you or Morgan about it.”
“Probably to Morgan but definitely not me. He knows I’ll just tell you if he was.”
“I guess I’m just wondering if he has. He’s been really jumpy lately about the company.”
I put down my menu and sighed. There have been some rumors going around that my dad wanted to retire and possibly give the company to Lamar. Since he has been working there after graduating grad school, he has contributed tremendously to the company’s turnaround. I’m proud of Lamar and what he has accomplished so far in his career.
I know it’ll probably piss some people off if my dad appointed him as the new owner, but at least the company will still be with the family.
“He’s just under a lot of pressure right now. He’ll go back to his usual uptight self once my dad gives him the keys to the company.”
Tamara shook her head. “You’re a mess.”
“You know he will be. When has Lamar ever loosened up?”
Tamara stared at me and nodded. “Exactly.”
“Honestly, I think him taking over the company might add more issues for him. That’s why I’m not going to tell him about my side business.”
I raised my brow and Tamara smiled. “I never told anyone but I make jewelry. It’s sort of a therapeutic thing for me, especially now.”
“How long have you been a designer?”
“Since I was a senior in high school. I couldn’t find what I wanted to pair with my homecoming dress, so I had a great idea to make my own necklace and earring set. I received a lot of compliments for it.”
“Wow. Why you never told me that you made jewelry? You know I love jewelry.”
Tamara shrugged. “I just wanted something to keep to myself.”
“But we’re family, Tam.”
She looked at me and gave an assuring smile. “I know Hales, but I sort of poured my heart out to one person about my dreams and they screwed me over.”
“That doesn’t mean everyone will especially Lamar or me.”
“I know. But some things I just rather leave personal.”
I stared at her, wondering if there was anything else she was hiding. I really hoped not, for Lamar’s sake.
“Anyway, enough about me, how are things going with you? I know Morgan’s been busy with work lately.”
“Yeah, he has been.”
“I still can’t believe Morgan is working on the other side of the law.”
I smiled. “He has done a complete 180, but he’s still the same man that I fell in love with.”
“Does he talk about any cases with you?”
I sighed. “Not really, which I don’t have a problem with. But lately, I noticed a change in him; he seems on edge with things. At first, I thought it was because he’s been spending a lot of time at the station; but now, I’m not too sure.”
“Maybe he’s just stressed. Just plan a romantic night to get his mind off of things.”
I sighed. “That actually sounds good, but I want a bit more.”
Tamara looked confused. “What do you mean?”
“When Morgan and I first started dating, it was a challenge to be together.”
“Only because of Lamar. Are you saying you’re bored with Morgan?”
I shook my head. “Never, I just wished we were still doing some of the things that we used to do; like take bike rides and go on spontaneous trips. Stuff like that.”
“Hales, you both do have careers and a child to think about now.”
“I know that. I just want one night where the two of us are the couple we used to be, that’s all.”
Tamara nodded. “I can understand that. Lamar and I were in a rut at one point, but we found a way to get back on track. I’m sure you and Morgan will do the same.”
I sighed. “I hope so because now, I feel that we can’t.”
Tamara gently placed her hand on mine, giving it a gentle squeeze. I sighed again wondering if I’m overreacting. Morgan and I have been through a lot together so this little hiccup shouldn’t be an issue.
So why am I making more out of it than what it is?
