The Proposal (part 8)

“We’ll be able to come back here when you’re done with your term? That’s what they said?” Ayn said.

Ayn knew that he wanted that to be true. That taking this position in Father Gheraeld’s cabinet and leaving their home was the best thing for them. A new home, new faces, a challenging new position for him, and a top-notch school for her.
