"Yeah." Lucio said and handed him his phone. "You going to tell them your married too?"
-
"I can't wait to help you plan, if you'll let me." Shelby laughed.

"Nope," Asher smirked before dialing his mom's number.
-
"Of course," Cara smiled, "Once all this dies down I want to start planning everything," she said as she pulled into Asher's place.

(what are his parents name?)

Mrs. McDaniels was fixing lunch when her phone rang. She wiped her hands on her apron to answer the call. "Hello?"
--
"I hope you choose a real gown. My wedding dress was a purple mini and it still smells of tequila." She teased as she got out of the car.

(Mmmm let's do Elizabeth and Richard lol)?
"Mom, hey, it's Asher," He said into the phone.
-
"You'll have a real wedding one day," Cara reminded her.

"Hey sweetie. How are you?" Elizabeth asked, happy to be hearing from him.
-
"I hope so." Shelby laughed. "You think you and Lucio will have kids?"

"I've been better," Asher said before getting quiet, "Something happened at the casino a few days ago and I'm in the hospital," He told her.
-
"Oh no, I've never really wanted kids," Cara told her.

"What? What are you talking about, are you okay?" Elizabeth asked, imagining a hundred different things happening.
--
"Not at all?" She asked surprised.

"I was shot in the chest, I just woke up a few hours ago," Asher told her, "They say I'm going to heal and be back to normal soon."
-
"No, I've just never gotten the appeal," Cara laughed.

"You were shot?" Elizabeth nearly dropped the phone. "Tell me exactly what happened."
-
"I can't imagine not having kids." Shelby shook her head. "Whatever works for you I guess."

"The man that shot me was someone we were about to take to court for fraud but he's a much more dangerous felon," Asher said, "the police are working on a case but I'm going to be okay."
-
"I live in a casino and dance half naked for a living, I don't see myself changing that until I'm too old to do so," Cara chuckled.

"Why weren't we called sooner Asher?" Elizabeth nearly yelled. "We're taking the next flight out to see you."
-
"Lucio feels the same?" She asked curiously.

"My phone is dead," Asher said, "No one close to me has your information," He defended.
--
"He hasn't told me otherwise," Cara shrugged.

"I can't believe this Asher. Who shot you? Do the police have him?" Elizabeth asked worriedly.
-
"For what it's worth,?I think you'd make a great mom." She said.

"Why don't you and dad just fly up here, you can use my miles if needed," Asher told her.
--
"Thank you," Cara smiled, "But it's never going to happen," She chuckled.

"We're leaving today if we can." Elizabeth said, going to her computer to look up flights. "When will you be out of the hospital? We'll stay as long as you need until you recover."
-
"You'll can be my?kids favorite aunt then." Shelby teased.

"I don't know the exact day yet," Asher explained, "If you fly today, please travel safe. I'm at Vegas Gen," He told her.
--
"Oh, I will most definitely be the fun aunt," Cara smirked.

"We'll be there as soon we can. I'll call you when we've got our flight plan." Elizabeth said.
-
"Not too much fun." Shelby laughed. "I don't want my kids breaking the law."

Asher hung up the phone and handed it back to Asher, "Great, I've got to explain to my parents that my guest room is now being occupied by my wife," He said.
--
"Oh, I'll be good," Cara chuckled as she sat on the couch in the living room, "Go shower," She told her.

"She can stay with us if you want to hide her away." Lucio offered and put his phone back in his pocket.
-
"I won't be long." Shelby said, She wanted to get back to Asher as soon as possible.

"I don't want to hide her, I just don't want to explain the situation to my family," Asher said, "I'd just like to introduce her as my girlfriend."
--
Cara nodded as she got comfortable on the couch and scrolled through her phone.

"So do it. They don't need to know she's your wife." Lucio pointed out. "If theres ever a time to lie,?I think this is it."
-
Shelby took a shower and threw her hair into a bun after so she didn't have to fuss with it. She got into a fresh change of clothes and came out a few minutes later.

"I can do that, it's explaining to them also why she's living in my guest room," Asher said, "I don't want to have to make her explain herself to my parents."
--
Cara sat up when she heard Shelby come down the hallway, "All set?" She asked.

"So put her in your room and pretend your a normal couple who moved in together. You don't have to mention her financial sitution."? Lucio said. "Hell they'll probably just be relieved you met someone."
-
"Yeah. I grabbed some clothes for Asher too so he doesn't have to come home in a bloody suit." Shelby said, adjusting the bag on her shoulder.

(off to bed)

"Yes because I'm able to do that right now," Asher pointed out.
-
"Or naked," Cara said, "I'm sure his suit is evidence."

"Shelby can do it. She's just moving her clothes into your room right?" He pointed out.
-
"hopefully he won't mind going home in some sweats instead of a suit." Shelby said.

"Yeah, can you call one of them and tell them before they leave the house?" Asher asked.
--
"I think he'll be fine," Cara said, "Let's head back."

"We may have missed them." Lucio said before?calling Cara's phone.

"Hey babe," Cara answered as Shelby locked up the house, "We're just now leaving."

"Hey don't leave yet." Lucio told her. "Asher's parents are flying in and Shelby needs to move her things to his room."

"What an introduction," Cara teased, "Okay, we'll be there later."
-
"Head back inside," Cara told Shelby, "Asher's parents are flying in and we've got to move your things into his bedroom."

"We'll be here." Lucio said before hanging up.
-
"Is he going?to tell them we're married?" Shelby asked her. She didn't think this was the best way.

Cara shook her head, "I doubt it," She told her, "I'm sure it's because his parents are going to stay here."

"I hope so." Shelby said and went back inside. "I hope they like me."

"They'll love you," Cara said as she headed back to Shelby's room with her.

"What was it like when you met Lucio's parents?" She asked.
