She smiled wide when he said yes, and clutched close to him, her tears now joyful. "Thank you, Daddy." she cooed, nuzzling her head into his chest. Her heart thumped hard in her chest, gleeful to finally have a set home with the one it had chosen. She stood on her tiptoes to give him a kiss, curling her arms around his neck as she did. She'd been worried about it for nothing, she realized. Of course he would want her to stay with him, he loved her as much as she loved him.
She broke the kiss, moving her feet back down to normal level. "So, shall we celebrate with my examinations?" she asked, a twinkle in her bright blue eyes. She knew he was still hard from her stething in the car.
