The next morning, the Pruett household was still brimming with excitement from the previous night’s event. Brady was the first one up and grabbed himself of a plate of leftover eggs and toast. He was hungry but couldn’t eat. He just sat there immersed in his thoughts and pride. Viviana was the same way when she joined him.
When she sat down, his thoughts shifted from being proud of his son to the first memories of his relationship with Viviana.

“You’re so smart, my angel. How did I ever end up with you?”
“Weeell…it all started long time ago when there was this trainer I wanted to meet…”
