“I’m hoping we can find a place with a big back yard.” He smiled at Emma as they drove into the real estate agency’s parking lot. Will opened the door to the real estate office for Emma and was greeted by Julia, the agent he had talked to earlier.
“Hi Will it’s nice to see you again!” She smiled brightly at the two of them. “…And you must be the fian….” Will shook his head and cut her short. He mouthed ‘not yet!’ at her. “…girlfriend I’ve heard so much about! Emma, right?”
Julia shook Emma’s hand, but didn’t give her a second to answer before she started talking again. “I’ve been looking through houses in your price range, Will, and I think I’ve found some lovely houses for you to consider. Now, you said you wanted a newer house, not one that was older or in any way dirty, right? And you wanted a big back yard. At least 3 bedrooms, since you are planning to start a family. And what else?”
Will wanted very much to stop Julia from talking. He hadn’t even talked to Emma about getting married or starting a family yet and Julia was ruining everything. “I’d like something with a decent garage and a large and well equipped kitchen, because I cook often. I wouldn’t complain if it had a swimming pool either.” He smiled and looked at Emma. “If you were going to have your dream house, what would you have to have in it?”
Meeting Julia, Emma felt a pang of jealousy since she was quite pretty. But she relaxed and nodded while she heard that she had heard a lot about her. She didn’t even pay attention to the mistake that Julia made of almost calling her his fiance.
She smiled throughout the description of the house. It sounded perfect. Except… Three bedrooms? Family? She raised her eyebrow and looked at Will. She knew that Will would probably want kids, but already? Unless there was something else going on.
Emma didn’t even think that Will wanted to marry her yet. Of course she day dreamed of it like most girls. Anyway, she thought shortly of what she would want. “A large bathroom with a big shower and bathtub. Plus hardwood floors because they are easier to clean.”
