“You know,” she said, walking towards me. “You’re a really great man.”
“And you’re so humble.”

My heart swelled.
“But most of all, you’re the best husband a woman could ask for.”

I pulled her to me when she turned to step into the shower, wrapping both of my thick arms around her chest and middle.
“You forgot to say you love me,” I informed her.
She looked at me over her shoulder.
“Maybe. But I’ll show you if you join me in the shower.”
“Promise?” I asked.
She smiled. “Promise.”
