Crab dip and cryptic destinations mark the conclusion of Candace and Emma’s wedding day. But when their first hours as a married couple are plagued by nature’s monthly visitor, reality sets in. Can true love last in the early morning light with curlers and cramps? Some days just need a do-over. And cheeseburgers.
This story is also included in Time of Your Life Anthology.
“Oh my God.” Candace stood with her back to the bed holding the remnants of the white envelope in her hand. Her short hair was tousled but somehow still managed to appear adorable. Emma rubbed the sleep from her eyes and stretched, feeling much improved now that she’d had a few hours’ sleep. The temperature in the room was still chilly, but the smell of coffee brewing in the little pot on the bathroom counter distracted her long enough to let her feet hit the floor.
“Morning,” she mumbled, scurrying past Candace toward the tiny room with the shower and toilet and quickly shut the door. Moments later, she emerged. The coffee smelled divine.
“Sorry about falling asleep on you last night. I can’t believe how tired I was. The second my head hit the pillow I was out.”
Emma nodded, still uncomfortable having Candace see her without her makeup and her hair in curlers. She lowered her eyes and fussed with the cups and stir sticks. “It’s no problem.”
“Yeah, but that air conditioner…hey are you all right?”
Emma poured a cup of coffee and glanced up. “Sure. Do you um, want a cup?”
“Thanks. I need one.” Candace studied her. “You sure you’re okay? You haven’t said two words to me this morning.”
“Talk to me.”
Emma nibbled her lip. “It’s stupid.”
“Try me.” Candace took her cup and set it down on the counter. “Emma.” She lifted her chin so Emma had to meet her eyes.
“I look frightful,” she choked out and broke away.
Candace laughed. “So what? You think we’re perfect all the time? That’s for romance novels and the Hallmark channel, babe. This is real life.”
“Come here.” Candace took her in her arms and pressed a kiss to her lips. “I love you, even if you are getting all the best cable channels with that getup.”
Emma squeaked in outrage and pushed out of her embrace. “Ugh!”
Candace leaned against the wall, a smirk stretching her lips into a smile. “You need to develop a sense of humor. Now come on. We need to grab some breakfast and hit the road. I have a feeling we wouldn’t want to miss this for anything.”
“Are you going to tell me where we’re going?”
Candace held up her hands in mock horror. “No way. I’ll let you find out when we get there. Just remember one thing.”
“Don’t kill the bearer of the white envelope.”
