2 weeks later..
"I can't believe it. Max is really mine now." Alex said leaning back against the seat with a sigh. She turned to grin at Myrnin. They had just come from signing papers. Max was legally hers now. He would be staying with his grandparents one more week before they left for Seattle. Max's grandparents had created a savings account for Max with money from his parents and from them. Alex was in charge of the account till Max turned eighteen. Alex was excited and deeply scared. She wanted to give Max the best possible. The problem was she still couldn't find the house she was looking for. Eve, Claire and her had ordered tons of things from different online stories and she could barely move around her room. She needed to find a house and soon. Glancing out the window she frowned as they passed the Glass House.
"Myrnin where are we going?" Alex asked. Myrnin didn't answer just kept driving. Five minutes later Myrnin slowed.
"Look to your left Alex." He said. Alex turned and gasped. There stood a beautiful looking farm house. It had to be the original house because of the age and design. It was covered in gray stones. It had a fenced in yard too she noticed. Myrnin stopped the car and got out coming to open her door. Wordlessly he held out his hand. Alex blindly took it to busy looking around. Together they walked around the outside and into the house. Alex counted a total of six bedrooms each with their own bath, two offices, a library with a fireplace, a kitchen with a island counter, a dining room and a living room also with a fireplace. The master bedroom was huge and contained a stone fireplace just like the two other rooms. Dazed and delighted Alex held Myrnin's hand. He led her outside to the backyard. She saw a old swing and gave a delighted giggle as Myrnin set her down and started to push her. Stepping back Myrnin watched her and fingered the case in his pocket. Its now or never he told himself.
"Alex." He said. She noticed his serious expression and glided to a stop.
"Omg Myrnin this place is beautiful! How in the world did you find it? Is it for rent or on the buying market?"
"It wasn't hard to find after I asked around and its neither for rent or available to buy."
"Oh well why in the world are we hear then?" Alex asked puzzled her smile fading. Myrnin took a deep breath and got down on his knee before her. He watch her eyes widen in shock and her hand flying to her chest.
"I bought this house Alex. For you and Max and..me."
"Oh Myrnin." Alex cut in tears glistening in her eyes.
"I love you Alex and I love Max. I want to be your husband and his father..that is if you'll have me." After Alex gave his hand a squeeze he continued on, "Alex will you marry me?" His heartbeat pounded twice.
"Omg yes!" Alex cried flying into his arms. Of balance they fell to the ground laughing. They shared a long passionate kiss before Myrnin tugged Alex into his lap. He took the ring box out of his pocket and handed it to her. Alex smiled through her tears and opened the box. Her breath left her in a whoosh. The ring was beautiful. With a blue gem and a design etched into the silver Alex gave Myrnin a shaky smile and held out her left hand. Myrnin grinned and took the box back. Removing the ring he slid it on her ring finger and turned her palm over giving it a gentle kiss. Alex curled her hand and laughed in delight. They kissed again.
"We'd better get back." Myrnin said regretfully. Alex sighed and rested her head against his shoulder as she gazed at her ring.
"Does Eve and Claire know about this?" Alex asked suspiciously as she remembered the funny looks Eve and Claire sent her this morning. She had been to nervous to ask at the time what was wrong but at Myrnins sheepish smile she knew they had.
"Sorry love." Myrnin said. Alex laughed and got up tugging Myrnin with her. Together they made their way to the car and headed back to the Glass House, to their awaiting friends and family.
Life in Morganville was never dull but it was worth it.
