CHAPTER TWENTY-SIX

(part five)

Ever since Jacob said he would be Katy’s daddy, Katy had insisted on taking her nap in his big armchair. For the last few days, Jill had dragged the armchair near the door of the bathroom. Katy slept like a stone in Jacob’s chair while Jill took a bath in his huge bathtub.

Jill was excited to see Jacob today.

She washed her hair and then let it air dry while she soaked in the tub. Even though she knew Jacob probably was too sick for real intimacy, she carefully shaved her legs. She tried to relax but her heart raced with the idea of Jacob coming home.

Frustrated at her own impatience, she remembered that Jacob had told her that she could use his iPod. Maybe some music would help her settle down. Jill wandered around the apartment until she found the tiny music player.

Flopping naked onto the bed, she tried to figure out how the player worked. Pressing play all, she stuck the earbuds in her ears.

Jacob liked the same music she liked!

Maybe it wasn’t so crazy to be engaged to a guy she didn’t know.

She smiled.
