Standing in the kitchen Matthew decided to bake chocolate cookies. Too excited and happy to think or do anything rational he started making the batter. His heart beating out of his chest from sheer happiness. He hadn’t felt this sort of joy in more than 300 years. Hadn’t felt so happy in such a long time. Staring at the ring once in a while, he kept telling himself it actually happened. Teekon had actually proposed to him. They both had their own matching rings. It was real. Unable to control his ecstatic emotions smiling all the while he prepared the batter. Muna was in Matthew’s room sound asleep peacefully in her crib.
