Braden Farmer & Adam Potter laughed. "But you don't even know her yet!" Braden said.
Sheldon shook his head. "It doesn't matter! She's perfect! I can feel it in my heart!"
Orb's Year 922
Nicole and Sheldon almost choked on their sandwiches. Glancing at each other, Sheldon covered his mouth and cleared his throat.
Nicole smiled and blushed. "Certainly not!" Their eyes lingered on each other.
Turning back to George, he answered frankly, "I don't know yet whether Nicole will be your new Mum, but I have to admit I like her alot."
Nicole reached out and held his hand. "I like your Dad alot, too."
George just smiled.
Nicole laughed lightly. "There's much to be appreciated in a straightforward question!"
Sheldon grabbed Nicole's hand and brought it to his lips. "Is that so? Will it be that easy for me when I propose to you?"
Nicole smiled. "Perhaps. I suppose you will just have to ask to find out," she teased.
"In that case, Nicole Young, will you... go outside and stare at the stars with me?" Sheldon asked with a twinkle in his eye.
Orb's Year 923
"Oh boy!" George said excitedly. He couldn't wait!
Orb's Year 924
"Do you ever think about having more children?" Nicole asked as she trailed her finger up and down his arm.
"Sure," Sheldon replied. "I would love a big family! I'd always wished George had little brothers or sisters to play with. Frowning, he remembered little Fanny and Fancy and wondered how they were getting on without their mother. He thought about them, but couldn't seem to make himself face them. They must hate him for abandoning them as he did!
Sheldon finally caught Nicole's drift and felt excitement course through him. "Well, why didn't you say so! I think 9 months from now would be great!"
