Both boys groaned.
"Not the park!" Devon grumbled.
Ace crossed his arms. "Fine! I don't know what you guys have against the park! Some of my fondest memories were there!"
"What about a movie! That would be cool!" Devon piped up quickly.
Ace glanced at Chase. "Movie sound good to you?"
Chase shrugged. "It'd be fine," he said stoically.
Ace grinned at his kids. "Alright. A movie it is! This is going to be awesome!"
Corduroy Sunglasses. They headed inside and loaded up with popcorn and refreshments.
Chase shrugged noncommittally, but Devon grinned. "I thought it was awesome!"
Ace glanced over and blinked in surprise when the flash blinded him.
Chase frowned as he backed away.
Once in the car, he flipped open the phone and called Yvonne. "They were staked out and taking pictures after we came out of the movies!" he told her excitedly.
"Oh I know," Yvonne said. "I called them and told them you'd be there, sugar!"
Ace's mouth dropped open with surprise. "You called them?"
"Sure sugar, nothing like good publicity! Now, you're going to throw a big party tonight and show everyone that you're on top!"
"I wouldn't even know who to invite," Ace began, but was quickly interrupted by Yvonne.
"Oh don't worry about it sugar. I'll take care of everything!"
Yvonne preened and feigned modesty. "Oh no, not a genius! Just a damn good agent!"
"I can't argue with that!"
Yvonne shrugged, "Sure, sugar, we're finished for now." Noting how rigid Tracy was holding herself, she added, "You might have to have this little chat outside."
Tracy turned on her heel and stalked outside while Ace followed dumbly behind. What was going on, he wondered.
Tears gathered in Tracy's eyes. "I just can't help but feel now that you're a big-time celebrity that you regret proposing and that's why you're stalling on the wedding. Maybe you want someone... younger..." she sobbed.
Ace glanced around to make sure there wasn't anyone else around. "Tracy! Don't be ridiculous! I still want to marry you! I love you! I just have to check with Yvonne..."
"Tracy! You're being unreasonable!" Ace snapped.
"Unreasonable?!" she demanded. "It's unreasonable to expect your fiance to actually pay attention to you?!" She shook her head and narrowed her eyes. "You've let fame get to your head! It's like I don't even know you anymore!" She shoved Ace aside and hurried down the walkway to where she was parked.
