Noah leaned against the kitchen island and looked around.

“It’s strange being back here..after all this time..”

“It hasn’t been that long.. and this time it will be different.” Luke replied as he wrapped his arms around Noah’s waist.

“Different how? We’re living at the farm again.. with half of your family”

“Yeah.. but only until we can move into our own apartment again.. and at least we can sleep in the same room this time.”

Noah chuckled

“Yeah no more rules.. that’s definitely different. How did you get grandma Emma to agree to that?”

“Well the fact that you’re my husband now might have something to do with it. It’s only been a month Noah, have you forgotten about it already?” Luke asked laughingly.

“No.. I just wanted to hear you say it. It sounds good you know.. my husband”

“You’re a dork you know that? But it’s cute.. the way you over think things.”

“No, I mean it. I didn’t get to enjoy calling you my fiancé for very long.. I plan on enjoying this husband thing, hubby”

Luke laughed.

“You have the rest of your life to enjoy this husband thing”

“I plan to.” Noah said and kissed his husband. “speaking of which, the wedding I mean, Maddie dropped the photos off earlier. They turned out pretty good.”

“They did? Where are they? I want to see them.. pick one out to frame for when we’re back in our own place.”

“And I’m the dork?” Noah said laughingly as he freed himself from Luke’s arms for a minute to dig the envelope out of his bag.

“Madeline Coleman, professional photographer. Who would’ve thought that the biggest film geek in town – other than you – would become a photographer” Luke said when he saw Maddie’s self
designed logo on the envelope.

Noah shrugged

“Love makes you do crazy things.. like taking up photography because the photography professor at your school is hot.”

“I still can’t believe it.. sweet little Maddie dating her professor..”

“Hey at least this guy is straight, that’s a step up from her last boyfriend” Noah joked.

“True, true.. now let me see those photos. I want to see how bad I looked”

“You were looking pretty good from where I was standing”

“Oh you mean you actually noticed me? Judging by these photos you were looking at the camera all day” Luke teased.

“Yeah I just thought if this film thing doesn’t work out I could always give modelling a try” Noah said laughingly.

Luke laughed and turned his attention back to the pictures spread out on the kitchen table.

“This one is nice.. Me putting the ring on your finger.”

“My hands were shaking..” Noah admitted. “I was so nervous, I had to say my vows right after that. I actually had a note in my pocket because I was afraid I’d forget what I wanted to say”


Noah nodded.

“Yeah and I still forgot what I wanted to say but I didn’t dare take out that note.. so I just made it up on the spot”

“That sounds familiar.. I had written the perfect vows, everything I wanted to say was in there... and then Ethan knocked his juice over and ruined them and I didn’t have time to re-write” Luke admitted.

“Well it still sounded pretty much perfect to me. You’ve always had a way with words.”

“Apart from the night you proposed to me. I was speechless. I couldn’t even get the word yes out of my mouth.”

“And I thought you were trying to think of a way to let me down gently”

“Really? You thought I was going to say no?”

“I don’t really know what I was thinking. I hadn’t even planned to propose that day. Let alone in Java.”

Luke laughed

“Yeah you never did tell me why you got down on one knee in Java”

“It was you. You walked in there that afternoon and tried to hide that you were tired and didn’t feel like going out on a date that night..” Noah trailed off.

“Oh yeah it was our 3 month anniversary date that we’d already postponed twice because of my job and everything. I didn’t want to disappoint you by cancelling again.”

“Yeah and I wanted to let you know it was ok.. but I didn’t really know how..”

“So you hid an engagement ring in my muffin and got down on one knee when I found it”

Noah blushed

“I know, I know, not exactly the most romantic proposal ever.. but I guess you didn’t mind since you said yes and I’m wearing this now” he said, holding up his hand to show his wedding ring.

“I’m glad you’re wearing the right one now. At least I can look at this one without wanting to rip it off your finger.” Luke confessed. “I hated that thing. I was so happy when you’d taken it off. Because that meant you were mine again, not hers.”

“I’m sorry.. for putting you through all that. I shouldn’t have dragged you into that mess”

“No Noah don’t apologise. You have nothing to be sorry for. I knew what I was getting into.” Luke said, looking up from his and Noah’s joined hands to his husband’s face and seeing the ‘yeah right’ look in his eyes. “Ok so I didn’t exactly know what I was getting into.. but no-one forced me to. You gave me plenty of ways out.. but I didn’t take them.”

“I just wish things had gone differently back then.. well not just back then.. we both screwed up plenty of times”

Luke nodded

“Yeah especially me..”

“Hey I said both of us. And remember what we promised each other when we got married? That it would be a fresh start for the both of us. Forget the bad things and only remember the good?” Noah asked, taking his husband’s face in his hands.

“Yeah..I remember..”

“Good” Noah said and kissed Luke

“What was that for?”

“Just giving you another good thing to remember”

“Hmm I think that maybe I need another one” Luke said, grinning.

Noah smiled and placed another kiss on his husband’s lips.

“Whatever you want Snyder, whatever you want.”

“You know.. you can’t really call me Snyder anymore now. Because your own last name is Snyder now too.”

“Yeah.. you better not say that in front of my dad..” Noah said, biting his lip

“Why not? Did he expect you to change your name to Donovan when you married me? Or the both of us doing the hyphenate thing? Snyder – Donovan, Donovan – Snyder? That would go down well with my dad.”

Noah sighed

“Luke.. you know what he’s like. He’s.. proud.. a bit like Damian.” He explained. “But that doesn’t mean I’m changing my name again just to please him. We’d have 3 last names if we wanted to please all of our parents.”

“Is that even legally possible?” Luke asked laughingly

“I don’t know.. but it wouldn’t have fit on that sign announcing our wedding” Noah said pointing at one of the pictures on the table.

“We would’ve needed a second sign just for our last names” Luke joked and looked over the rest of the pictures again.

“Mads did a good job.” Noah said, more to himself than to Luke. “We should buy her a thank you gift”

“Hmm yeah we should.. Hey wait.. is that Tony in the background there? Who is he dancing with? He didn’t bring a date, did he?”

“I don’t think so.. but that looks like.. Parker?”

“It is Parker! I feel like I should warn him..”

“Who? Parker? For Tony? I think you better warn Tony.. for Jack!” Noah said, only half joking.

“Aww I like this one. Our first kiss as a married couple” Luke said, changing the subject.

“Yeah and no dancing relatives in the background. That makes it better”

“Oh shut up you. I think we should frame this one. I like it” Luke said holding up the picture.

Noah nodded

“But what about this one?” he said pointing to another photo on the table

“Oh my god, she took pictures of us dancing.” Luke said shocked.

“I like that one.. you look great in it. You look happy. And I’m smiling like a loon because you were looking at me like I’m the greatest thing in the world.”

“To me, you are. There’s no-one else in the world that could make me look at them like that. You’re one of a kind Noah Snyder.”
