Raelyn watched Owen head out the door for his first day of school. She remembered her own first day and how scared she had been. She was afraid the other kids wouldn’t like her and she wouldn’t have any friends. She had also been afraid that the other kids would be smarter than her.
Zaiden kissed his wife’s cheek. “You are worrying again.”
She nodded and sighed. “I was remember how scared I was my first day of school.”
“Were you still afraid on the second day?”
Raelyn shook her head.
“Because I met you.”
Zaiden smiled when she said that. “You met me and were no longer afraid?”
Raelyn nodded. “I went home and told Daddy all about my new boyfriend and that we were going to get married. Do you remember our wedding at recess?”
“Our honeymoon was an art class if I remember correctly.”
Raelyn nodded. “We drew our own wedding pictures. They are still hanging on my bedroom wall at my parents’ house.”
“And now we have our actual wedding photos on the wall.”
Raelyn moved closer to Zaiden. “Our first wedding was wonderful, but I much prefer our last one.” She kissed him softly.
“Why didn’t you ever date anybody while we were in school?
“Because you weren’t available.”
