If you were given one wish, a chance to change a single event from your past, present, or future, would you? When Dylan arrives home to reconcile with her father before the Grim Reaper comes to sweep him away, she is given that exact opportunity. But the gift of one wish doesn’t come without a clear warning: “Everything in this life has a consequence. What you choose today could alter what might already be.” With so many options to choose from, Dylan has to do some major soul searching and only has three months to decide. Should she take the risk of a wish that might not actually bring her happiness or leave her life in the hands of fate?
“Cole, what do you want to be when you grow up?” Her small hand fit perfectly in his as they lay on a blanket in the back of his beat-up pickup truck, parked at the rear of her father’s ranch. They looked up at the stars plastered across the late night sky.
“I don’t know. Something important, someone that people depend on,” he answered.
“Do you know what I want to be?” Dylan turned her face toward his.
“An actress?” he teased.
“No. Guess again.”
The moon cast a silver glow down upon them, and her eyes shone in its light when she spoke.
“A singer on Broadway? Maybe a dancer in Milan?” He laughed, knowing his ridiculous answers would annoy her.
“No. I want to design fashion some place amazing like New York. I want to see my name on the clothes that people wear. But do you know what I want more than fame and fortune?” She smiled at him.
“No.” He moved closer.
“I want to be your wife.” Her lips were inches from his, her breath sweet across his face. “I want to have lots of kids and a huge dog. We can have a summer home here in Texas, so we can visit our families.”
“That sounds like a pretty big wish list.” He laughed again, glad they both wanted the same basic things from life. “I can’t make you famous, but I could help you with all the other things you want.”
Dylan giggled, letting him pull her into his arms.
