February 4th 2017
Nolan felt he had settled into the married life quite nicely.

Even if it wasn't the most conventional of relationships, but it was one that Nolan had a good feeling about. Their story wasn't one that was even normal for the vow, having met each other at the park and getting their notifications at the same time. The wedding had been nice, especially seeing both of their families and just getting to know each other more over the past couple of months.

They had started to become a family.

Nolan hadn't known when he moved to the US that he would be a dad. In fact, perhaps that had been the thing he would said would be least likely to happen; yet here he was on a Saturday night, hanging out with the little boy that had become his stepson.

And honestly, he didn't want to be anywhere else.

Jaxon was a great kid, and the two of them had really bonded over the past couple of months, in the past two weeks especially. That was when Nolan decided to just make staying home on Saturdays what he did every week. The two of them got some bro time, and it was awesome.

The day had been spent playing with the dogs, to the point where Indie ended up needing a bath due to getting Jax's lunch on her. Still, that was an interesting adventure and had Jax running towards the door as he heard his mother's car park in the garage.

"Jaxon I have your hot chocolate for you, come to the table and I'll ask mummy to join us" Nolan kindly asked the boy as he placed the cups on the table

Giselle admittedly hadn't been as ready for being married as she had thought when she first received her match. She actually had gotten very nervous about the whole wedding and married life business once she had found out she had been matched. She even had gotten cold feet for a second and almost backed out of the wedding, which she was sure Nolan had never known, and she didn't want him to know. Especially since, now, after having made her way down the aisle despite her fears, she was very happy to be married to Nolan.

Sure, the relationship wasn't perfect. After all, they were still just getting to know each other. They were almost completely strangers when they made their vows to each other.. Admittedly, they hadn't even consummated their marriage. Giselle wasn't sure when that would happen, but as of yet, she hadn't felt a right time for that.

Her main concern, though, through all of this marriage stuff, was Jaxon.a She feared that Nolan and Jaxon might not get along. Her thoughts would swirl thinking: 'Is Nolan ready to be a father? Will he like Jaxon? Would Jaxon like him? Certainly, Giselle had worried over nothing.

Lately, Nolan had taken to watching Jaxon for Giselle when she had to work on one of his days off. It went well those days, too. Jaxon was clearly happy with his new step dad, and even though Nolan had seemed like he wasn't ready to be a dad when they first got married, he seemed to be enjoying his role as a stepdad. This definitely eased Giselle's worries about how well this marriage would work.

It had been a long day at work that Saturday, so Giselle was happy to pull into the garage of their home. She sighed in relief as she got out of her car, glad to be able to relax with the two most important men in her life. She opened the door to the greeting of her husband's face, her son's voice, and the smell of hot chocolate. "I'm home," she called, cheerfully.

Nolan hadn't expected to be enjoying this new family life as much as he was, especially considering his past. The idea of having children was one of the most terrifying in the past, but that was all due to Millie. She had ruined the idea of having a family for him, and now here he was with a wife and stepson. What a hell of a twist.

He and Giselle had decided to take things a bit slow, especially considering that the two of them had barely known each other for a few weeks or so before actually tying the knot; but most of all, Nolan just wanted to be a gentleman. It took them a while to have their first kiss outside of their wedding day, and in all honesty, It was kind of nice. They both didn't need to rush into something that shouldn't be rushed, and all the while set a good example for Jaxon.

Jaxon has been his main concern when he and Giselle first met, but that was simply because he wasn't sure how to be a parent. The idea was not something that had really been a fond idea in his mind for quite a few years; but Jaxon made it easy. He was a good kid, and the two of them got along quite well. These Saturdays spent together were certainly helping that as well.

"Hey Darling" Nolan said with a smile as Jaxon went over to his mother, ignoring Nolan's request. That wasn't really something that bothered him, considering the bond that the two of them had. "How was work?" He asked as He waited for her to come over, just so he could wrap his arms around her.

Giselle was surprised at how easy it had been to settle into married life with Nolan. She honestly wasn't sure she would be able to be comfortable with a man around. She didn't have great experiences with men in the past. Shockingly, even after all Jaxon's father did to her, she was enjoying being married to Nolan. She didn't even shy when he went to touch her.

It was definitely going well for Giselle and Jaxon. Giselle was even debating letting Nolan adopt Jaxon. Of coirse, she would want Nolan to approach her about it first, be sure he wanted to be Jaxon's father. Also, she would have to be sure Jaxon wanted Nolan as a Daddy. She liked the idea though.

Jaxon's face was the first to greet her since as usual, he ran right to her as she walked in the door. She dropped her bag on the floor by the door and lifted her son into her arms. She hugged him tightly for a little while. Then, she kissed him all over his cheeks as the little boy laughed. "I love you," she whispered in Jax's ear. He whispered back, "to the moon and back, Mama?" Giselle smiled. "Yes. To the moon and back."

She put the boy down and headed into the kitchen, clutching Jaxon's hand in hers as they made their way towards Nolan. She completely forgot her bag by the door, but surely she would pick it up later. She smiled at her husband. "Hello, honey. Work was alright," she replied as Jax let her hand go and went straight for his chocolate. She leaned close to Nolan so his arms could wrap around her. "How were things here?"

His family had been surprised when he told them about his wedding, in fact, his mom demanded to know everything about his new life. Nolan had neglected to mention the fact that the marriage was arranged, but it didn't really matter. His parents and sister hadn't made it to the wedding, but that was simply due to the time restraint. It would only be a matter of time before they would show up at his door. It had been such a long time since Nolan had as much as a girlfriend, and now, he had a wonderful wife.

His family had honestly thought that he wasn't going to get over the whole Millie thing, especially considering his feelings towards this whole marriage and parenting idea. Hell, If it hadn't been for his sister getting married and having her son, he probably wouldn't have signed up for the vow. Parenting hadn't been something he saw in his immediate future, but Jaxon definitely changed that for him.

Jaxon was a great kid, and how easily it came to Nolan to be a father surprised him. Children weren't something that Nolan had seen in his future for a long time but he was enjoying life as Jaxon's 'dad'. He had given a bit of thought to adopting Jaxon, but he wanted to make sure it was the right thing to do.

Nolan smiled back at his wife as she walked into the room, holding hands with Jaxon (who let go to get to his hot chocolate). "That's good to hear" He said as he wrapped his arms around her. "Today was fun. Jaxon helped me with some chores and waning Indie. We even got to go to the park" Nolan smiled and kissed the top of her head as Jaxon began to go on about the park and washing the dog.

When Giselle had brought up the idea of the Vow to her mother, she had gotten a skeptical response. Obviously, the notion of an arranged marriage between two people who have not met is a hard thing to see working for most people. Giselle had to try though, for Jaxon. Jax was getting older and needed a male in his life to do things with him and to talk with him about things that Giselle just wouldn't understand. This had been her solution.

Even though her mom wasn't sure it would work, she supported her daughter in her decision and Giselle was thankful for that. Her mom may have been absent her whole life, but it was for good reasoning that she had given Giselle up for adoption all those years ago. Now, she was Giselle's closest family and dearest friend. She knew everything Giselle had gone through with Jaxon's father, and yes even feared her daughter might find herself in that kind of situation again. Giselle had similar fears in the beginning, but now that they were in this, she knew she need not fear that with Nolan.

Nolan had truly swept Giselle off her feet these past few months. It had been amazing, and she was surely falling hard for this man. He was wonderful with Jaxon, and amazing to her. She couldn't have been happier. The Vow had chosen perfectly.

Giselle leaned close to Nolan, enjoying the warmth and safety of his arms around her. She gently placed her hands on his chest. "Sounds like an eventful day." She loved that Nolan was always keeping her son busy and happy. "Well, what shall I make for dinner?" she asked, realizing that the time was 7:30, which was nearly time for Jaxon to go to bed.

Nolan had never thought that he was going to get married after Millie. Millie had taken his heart and broken it into so many pieces that he thought it had been lost forever. Even if he thought he was going to get married again, children were certainly out of the question.... That had been the main reason that he had such a hard time with relationships. Millie had told him that she was going to have his child only to have been lying the entire time. He didn't know how he would react to the nuclear family ideal..

But then came Giselle and Jax.

The two of them had completely changed the idea of what he thought he had wanted, and in reality, they had saved him from never growing as a person. He hadn't expected the vow to work out so well, especially considering the first two matches hadn't worked out. Nolan was happy that they hadn't worked out however; considering the life that he had now was better than he could have hoped for.

He just held onto her gently for a few moments as Jax told her all about the day they had. This was the life that he hadn't seen for himself, but couldn't imagine anything else now. Giselle was perfect, Jax was awesome, things were just great. "I already made dinner so that Jax could go to bed on time." Nolan smiled, knowing that the young boy was not as excited for that part "I can make you a plate if you want" He offered, looking forward to enjoying dinner with his wife and stepson.
