My Best Friend's Brother(82)

By: Amy Brent

They knew we loved one another before even we did, and as we shared in the joy of our next step with everyone we loved, I thought about how things always come full circle.

His mother laughing at his side. Emma giggling at mine. Our friends and family members enjoying the best French food in Dallas while we celebrated a future we had yet to carve out for ourselves. I took the hand of the woman who was going to be my new co-host and the hand of the man I’d pledged myself to, and I brought them both to my lips for a kiss.

A kiss that conveyed more thanks and more love than I could’ve ever spoken to them.

I finally had the family I’d always wanted, and somehow, I knew things were going to be all right.

The End
