“Good afternoon, Penny.” I nod at my secretary.
She gives me a lopsided smile. “Good afternoon, sir.”
I swing open the door to my office, and there they are. There’s a brown-haired little girl holding a pink My Little Pony doll in her hand seated on the floor, a blond boy on the couch punching numbers on a smartphone, and a sexy brunette in a blue and white summer dress and sexy high heeled sandals looking out the window. The alluring woman in the dress turns around and gives me the most arresting smile I’ve ever seen.
“Surprise!” Isa and Eddie shout in unison.
I bend down and seize my girl into my arms. “Maddy, baby!” I kiss her cheeks over and over as she squeaks happily and shows me her new toy.
“Hi, Daddy!” Eddie rushes over to give me a hug. “Were you surprised? Penny didn’t squeal on us did she?”
I put my arm around him and kiss him on the head. “Penny keeps good secrets then. I had no idea! How was the flight here?”
“It was good. We got up really early, though.”
Isabel has her arms crossed watching us, waiting for her turn. I place Maddy back down on the floor and rush over to my Isa.
“Baby.” I pull her into me and kiss her.
“Hi. We took an earlier flight. I couldn’t wait much longer. We missed you. I missed you. Being this far away from you just didn’t feel right.”
