"I’m afraid so love, at least there aren’t any more family members we’re hiding." Nate chuckled and pecked her forehead.

Daphne smiled, but it faded quickly. She inhaled deeply, and apologized to Nate’s mother, before making brief eye contact with Nate, “I’m sorry, will you just excuse me for a moment? I will be right back.” She walked brusquely away and towards the staircase running upstairs to Nate’s room. She leaned over the sink in the bathroom and hyperventilated slightly.

"Well no, he told his father, Laura and I, but then he of course had to buy the ring at David’s shop who of course couldn’t keep a story like that from his wife, and you’ll soon find out what a big mouth Ellen has." Karen chuckled as Nate walked into the kitchen. "And don’t worry. I don’t like being wrong, but I have to admit that this time I was. I’ve seen how happy you make him."

It wasn’t that Nate didn’t trust his mother or his fiance, but he didn’t want to leave the two alone for very long. “Of course I had to go to David’s shop. I wanted the best quality ring for Daph,” He grinned and put his arm around her waist. “Besides, I never would have heard the end of it if I’d gone anywhere but my brother in law’s shop.” Nate turned to Daphne, “One of these days, I’m going to have to sit down and draw out a picture of who exactly’s in this family you’re marrying into and who does what. I don’t think you’ll ever have to worry about connections they’re all so diverse.”

"We just got out of school and I have to study again," Daphne sighed animatedly, "Well, it’s probably for the best- are you guys really that extensive?" She asked as she reached her arms around his shoulders.

"That would be lovely, Daphne." Karen replied, with an equally nervous smile. "May I see the ring? He was awfully secretive about it, even though he told us he was going to." She studied the ring when it was offered to her. "He did good." She said it as if to say that her son had picked both a good ring, and a good fiancé. "I’ve never had a daughter in law before, so you’ll have to bear with me as I learn how to deal with one. Let me know if I step out of line."

"Oh no, he told you all! One day when we’re closer, and Nate’s not around to play unnecessary referee, I’ve got to know how you felt about that." She laughed to herself as she followed Karen into the kitchen. "He did didn’t he?" She agreed, though she hadn’t quite picked up on the subtext as she looked at the ring again. A softer, more genuine smile, spread across her face as Karen acknowledged her as a future daughter in law, "And I promise to be more bearable than I’ve ever been with anyone. I won’t make you regret letting me back into Nate’s life."

Grinning, he watched he go on ahead before following her. As they neared the house, and the children playing in the yard, he caught up to her and took her hand. “For the record, we can celebrate some more tonight once they all leave. Since we started dating, my silencing spells have become impeccable.” He grinned and leaned over to kiss her before they were herded inside by his - and soon to be hers - nieces and nephews.

Laura noticed the ring first. She squealed, handed Nate to Chris and rushed over to the young couple. Following that everything happened at once, Nate was pushed aside as his sisters swamped Daphne wanting to know details of the proposal and see the ring. His mother came out from the kitchen and stood in the doorway. He could tell she felt excluded and wanted to join her daughters but was worried she’d push her soon to be daughter in law away and scare her. Nate moved to say something to her, but he was caught up by one of his brothers in law.

Daphne got one final glance at Nate before a wave of family crashed over her. Laura grilled her amiably and she described the proposal as best she could while her left hand was pulled in all sorts of directions. Daphne saw Karen standing warily on the sidelines. She took a deep breath before excusing herself from the crowd of ladies and children that carried on boisterously even after she removed herself. She approached Nate’s mum, “So, how about that helping hand I promised earlier?” Daphne offered nervously, adding a well intention-ed smile.

Chuckling, Nate ran his fingers through her hair. “Though right now, we should probably focus on getting back to the house before my mother regrets accepting you into the family.” He teased. “Everyone should be there by now anyway, can’t be late to our own engagement party.” He didn’t want to leave her warmth, but he knew that they really needed to get a move on. Slipping out of her, he reached for his wand and cleaned the two of them up. He stood and quickly redressed before helping her fix herself up.

"I suppose you’re right. Although for the record, as much as I love your family, I sort of prefer our method of celebration." Daphne giggled and skipped away towards the sound of people in the distance, before Nate could respond, checking over her shoulder every so often to make sure he was still behind her.

Nate groaned as she dug her nails into his lower back, before thrusting into her, once, twice and then coming undone deep within her walls. Rolling onto his back, he pulled her with him, so he stayed buried deep inside her as they caught their breath. “I don’t want you to go home now.” He chuckled, half in jest. “Just stay here with me.”

Daphne stretched her body out along his, and dragged her lips along his jawbone, “As long as you want and as long as you need. We have all the time in the world.” She whispered into his ear, smirking as she laid her head against his rising and falling chest.

Grinning, Nate watched her talk animatedly. When she finished speaking, he took her left hand and slid the ring onto her finger. “I think that sounds pretty damn good to me. As many kids as possible. In fact…” He gently pushed her down into the flowers, marveling in her beauty as her hair spilled around her head like a halo. “We should get started on that right now.” He teased, moving to hover over her. “I believe we have just enough time to get busy and still make it back in time for dinner.” He winked, his lips lower to caress her neck as his hand went to her hair. Nate moved his other hand to slip under her skirt, pushing it up around her hips as his thumb caressed the skin covering her pelvic bone.

Daphne giggled softly as he touched her, then let out a breathy moan. She grabbed at the bottom of his tee and pulled it over his head, kissing him deeply as they rolled around in the grass. She could still hear the sounds of Nate’s nieces and nephews playing in the distance and hoped they were far enough away from them not to make a scene. She shrugged off her jacket and let the straps of her dress fall around her shoulders. “I can’t believe it’s only been two weeks. Right about now, it feels more like it’s been five years.”
