Love Fest Drabble #1

This drabble is from a prompt by penguingirl03, "James losing his sucker bet to Cindy."  This would take place in the future of my legacy, so it can be considered a spoiler.  Enjoy!

James whistled as he walked in the front door and set the package he was carrying down on the floor as he removed his coat.  The house was oddly quiet; of course, after being used to the hustle and bustle that three children and their friends caused, James still hadn’t gotten used to how things had changed since Nicky had gone off to college.

“James?  Is that you?” Cindy called from upstairs.

“Yes, doll,” he replied.  “I’ll be right up; I have something to show you.”

He grabbed the package and bounded up the stairs, a little slower than he had in years past, and entered his room.

“What’s that you’ve got?” she asked when James set the package down on the bed.

“Why don’t you open it and find out?”

Cindy untied the string and began to carefully unwrap the brown paper from around the parcel.  She gasped when she realized what was inside.

“James, is this…” she breathed.

“Yes,” he said, reaching around her to hold the garment up.  “The finest cashmere and wool blend that money can buy, with mink trim.  Only the best for my wife.”

Cindy lovingly stroked the soft fur, admiring the quality of the garment.  It had been a long time since she’d had something this nice.  Heck, it had been a long time since she’d had something new at all; she’d always insisted that the children get the new clothes, while she’d reworked old things for herself.

She gasped, suddenly, and turned around to face her husband.  “James, you promised to buy me a new coat if Nicky and Alice…”

James laughed as he wrapped his arms around Cindy.  “Doll, you win our little bet.  Nicky asked me when he was home last weekend if he could have the family diamond.  He’s planning on asking Alice to marry him this weekend.”

Cindy squealed, and began to jump up and down while still in James’ arms.  “They’re getting married!  Hey!” she exclaimed, playfully slapping him on the shoulder.  “You’ve known since this weekend and you didn’t tell me!”

James just laughed.  “I would have told you sooner, but I wanted to surprise you with this.  You deserve something nice, after all the sacrifices you’ve made over the past few years.”

“Well, I think that you deserve a reward for all the sacrifices you’ve made over the past few years as well,” she said, pulling his head towards hers so their mouths met.

“I am a fan of rewards,” he said, his lips still against hers.

“I know.  Now be quiet so I can give you the rest of your reward.”
