My dad looked at me for a second then shook his head. “Well, what are you gonna do about it? Your mother always said, ‘The choices we make and the chances we take determine our destiny.’ What do you want your destiny to be Carter?”
I already knew the answer to this I had been thinking about it all day. “I want to tell her how much I love her. I want to be with her, make her laugh, and be able to be the one to hold her when she is upset. I want to show her how amazing she is and be the first person in her life to treat her like that. Every time she comes in a room I can’t take my eyes off of her. When she touches me sometimes I need to remember how to breathe.”
He smiled at me. “Well, you have four days with her to show her how it could be. I would take advantage of that if I were you.”
He was right, I needed to show her how it feels to be loved. I know at this point she hasn’t had that since her mom. “Thanks Dad, you really helped.” He sat back in his chair and turned the TV back on.
Tomorrow was going to be day one of make Maddy mine
