Indulge with Me (With Me in Seattle #10)(9)

“Same,” Sam says with a grin. Her voice is gruffer than usual, as she blinks away tears. “I may not want babies of my own, but I sure am grateful that y’all keep popping them out so I can spoil them like crazy.”

“We’re happy to oblige,” Jules says with a laugh. “Wow, so many babies and weddings happening these days. A lot can change in five years.”

“A lot can change in five minutes,” I reply. “One minute, Will was blissfully unaware that he was about to be a daddy again, and the next? Pow.”

“It’s going to be awesome,” Sam assures me.

“You won’t have two babies in diapers.”

She frowns. “Thank God.”

I take a deep breath. I can do this.

Of course I can.

Look who I have at my back. Not just Will, but all of these wonderful people.

We can’t lose.

Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Fry chicken in oil until crisp and internal temp is 165 degrees, 8-10 minutes. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels.
