Luis waited at the front of the church for Sheridan to appear.
He was nervous, but he refused to show it. If he did, Hank would never let him hear the end of it. Man, he couldn't
believe he was getting married today. When he was younger he'd often thought about what today would be like and
he never imagined that he would be marrying a Crane. But then that was before he met Sheridan.
The moment she had ran into his police cruiser Luis had known she would be trouble, but he never could have predicted
that she would steal his heart. He was a lucky man to have a woman like Sheridan love him. She was strong and she
wasn't afraid to stand up for what was right. Sometimes she was too stubborn for her own good, but damn if he didn't
love that about her. He even loved arguing with her, but then again he loved making up even more. He grinned. Theresa
would say they were meant to be... that it was fate. He'd never tell her, but he tended to agree with her. How
else could you explain the things he and Sheridan had been through together?
Someone laid a hand on his shoulder and he looked up to find his father watching him. "You about ready, son?"
Luis gave his father a big grin. "I've never been more ready for anything in my life!"
His father nodded. "I can certainly understand that, Sheridan is a wonderful woman. I wish I could remember
the day I married your mother. She said it was right here in this church."
"Papa, I wish you could remember too, but Dr. Russell said you may never get your memory back. Maybe that's
for the best. Theresa told me earlier that today is the day to make new memories. I think she's right. I think
today is a whole new start not only for me and Sheridan, but for our whole family."
"Your sister is a very wise woman."
"I agree, but don't you dare tell her I said so."
"Tell who what?" his brother Antonio asked from behind him.
"We were talking about Theresa." his father said.
"Ah, " Antonio said slapping him on the back. "So little brother, are you ready to get hitched?"
Luis laughed. "Absolutely. As long as Sheridan is right beside me, I'm ready for anything."
"Hmm, just don't go acting like Superman again."
"Hey, I did what I had to do to protect the woman I loved. You would have done the same thing in my place."
"Not me!" Antonio said looking around the church. "There isn't a woman alive I would risk my life
Yeah, right, Luis thought as he watched his brother walk over and speak to some of Sheridan's friends. One day
some woman is going to come along and turn his brother's world upside down. Antonio had already built up a reputation
in Harmony as being a ladies man, but Luis knew it was only a matter of time before some woman took him down a
peg or two. Luis only hoped he had a front row seat!
"Luis," his father said interrupting his thoughts. "it's time."
Luis nodded and took his place at the front of the church. Hank, his best man, stood beside him. The music started
and Theresa, Sheridan's maid of honor, stepped out first. She had not only designed her and Sheridan's gowns, but
she had also helped Sheridan plan most of the wedding. Luis was amazed at his sisters talent. He knew it would
take her far.
Sheridan appeared in the doorway and Luis lost all train of thought. She took his breath away. The gown she wore
molded to her slender curves. The train followed behind her as she and Ethan started the walk down the aisle. Luis
captured her eyes with his. The love that filled her eyes went straight to his heart. He would never forget how
she looked right at this moment - like an angel sent from heaven. His angel, he thought as she came to a stop in
front of him, and soon she would be his wife.
