"I just don't want to get his hopes up." Gavin couldn't help but say when Caitlin brought of the idea of her mother getting involved in all this with Timo.
"He just needs the truth." Caitlin shrugged as if why should that be kept from Timo.
Gavin sighed. After all, his folks only left 4 hours ago. It felt as if they'd been there FOREVER. He needed a vacation from them, but he couldn't admit it because he knew they wanted the best for him and Cait. Especially, Hattie.
They just couldn't wait to have grandchildren.
As he studied Caitlin serious face, he knew they should just do it. Get married. But it seemed, his folks and her folks too wanted them to have a big wedding.
"Lets just focus on us." He didn't mean to sound selfish. Possibly, it was the physical aspect of it. But time was ticking and he wasn't sure he wanted to be just the boyfriend anymore.
"What are you talking about?" She'd let the suds down the drain and he'd dried the last dish.
"What if we got married and didn't tell anyone. I mean..we..we could still have a big wedding. Some day." He shrugged, hoping he wasn't too insensitive.
"I don't want anything big. Really." When she fell into him and wrapped her arms around his middle, he felt as if he'd met the right girl. He couldn't stop grinning.
"Yeah, but I want them to be happy too." He hated to let the parents down. "They'll want something they can take a lot of pictures of."
She looked up at him as if they could just deal.
"OK, lets see if we can get this thing done at the court house." He bit his bottom lip. It would be their first wedding. The one that counted. The other one would be of celebration.
