Chapter 3 humans are complicated
As Gwen fell asleep in her cousin's arms the hours have passed and the night became morning. Max woke up first to find a surprising sight in front of him: Gwen was asleep in her cousin's arms and he had his hands around her and were both sleeping peacefully. He smiled at the sight and started cooking breakfast. The sizzling sounds from the frying pan are what woke the two kids up. They opened their eyes and Gwen rose from Ben's chest and looked him in the eyes. The same eyes they both shared… unknowingly to both of them their lips inched closer and closer to each other until they made that blissful contact. Once separated their faces were very close to each other and they whispered to each other
"I love you…"
"I love you too" and embraced each other in a hug.
Max who saw all this decided not to interrupt them. He could question them about it later. Once the two kids separated, only then they saw their grandfather standing a mere few feet away from them making breakfast.
"Grandpa!" they both called out
"Good morning" he said
"How're you feeling Ben?"
"My head hurts a little and I'm a little nauseous but otherwise alright"
"That's good. How about you, Gwen?"
"I'm a little tired but otherwise alright"
"Okay. It's good to have you back Ben"
"Thanks. It's good to be back" replied Ben
"Listen grandpa about what you saw earlier I just want to explain…" began Ben but Max cut him off
"Don't worry about it. I had a feeling this would happen. So did your parents because I was talking to them on the phone from time to time and telling them how you're doing. We all knew it's a matter of time till this happens. And we are all happy that it did"
"What?" asked the two cousins in a surprised tone?
"Well we knew that you two were meant for each other and it's only a matter of time till you discover your true feelings for each other. So you two have our approval" said Max as he put the plates of bacon and eggs on the table and walked towards his grandkids as they gave him a hug
"Thanks grandpa" they said happily as they hugged him
"No problem. But just try not to get too carried away if you know what I mean"
"don't worry we won't" said the two cousins as they sat down to eat, though Ben needed some help to get to the table because of his injuries. The two cousins spent the rest of the summer differently. Instead of bickering and fighting they would spend it being nice to each other and exchanging a small kiss and hug here and there. Since they discovered their feelings for each other they apologized to one another for all the bad things they did and said to each other and were forgiven. Two weeks after the incident, Ben has recovered and the parents were invited to be told the good news about the kids' relationship and couldn't be happier about it. As the years passed the two kids grown and became adults and so it was that they got married and eventually gave birth to a beautiful girl named Lily and they couldn't be happier about it…
And they lived happily ever after…
