Celeste decides to ask him question in order to make the time fly by faster and get her mind of the fact that they slow dancing together. “So,” Celeste begins but falters because she doesn’t know what to ask. Quickly she thinks of something, “What are your long term plans? I mean, do you want to perform all of your life or do you want to get more into producing?”
“To tell you the truth,” Stephen begins, weighing his words very carefully. “Actually, I want to be a family man. Of course, I always want to be a part of the music industry. I actually want to start a Christian music label, but having a family is something that is very important to me. You know, a wife, a few kids, maybe even a dog.”
“So, you want to get married?”
“Well, that is not how I planned for the question to be asked because I wanted to be the one to ask you in a romantic, more traditional way. But since the offer has been placed on the table… I accept.”
Do you believe that when you meet your future spouse that you will know it, instantly? Stephen does. He can’t explain it but he has always known that when he meets his intended bride that he will be able to proceed with confidence. What he hadn’t counted on is that his intended bride might not have the same revelation. Will his faith and belief in love win Celeste over? Will she even give him the time of day? After Celeste’s initial rebuff of Stephen’s attempt to get to know her, he’s not so sure. “Faith like a mustard seed,” Stephen reminds himself. Celeste had never given consideration to happily ever after or eternal love. Outside of the love she experiences from her Heavenly Father, she gives love no second thoughts. When smooth, suave, and handsome Stephen enters into Celeste’s life, without batting an eyelash or giving him a second thought, Celeste dismisses him as a philandering womanizer and refuses to be the next notch in his bedpost. Is Celeste wrong? Has she completely misjudged Stephen? Even worst, has she allowed her parent’s divorce to askew her psychology of relationships? Will Stephen get the girl? Will Celeste run faster than Stephen can chase? Will there be A Wife for Stephen?
