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.
