Was I really doing this?
Of course I was.
I want all of her.
I want her now and till I die.
Maybe after that.
After I die, I will still want her.
And the life after too.
And to night that will happen.
I have been planning this for a while now actually.
I knew that tonight would be the night our parents would fly to California and meet us.
They knew I would be doing this too.
But, kiara didn’t.
Then again she isn’t surprise to know.
I guess….I just hope everything goes right.
Everyone here was focused on kiara and I.
Just the way it should be.
“Kiara….” I began.
“Will you mar…wait” I cut myself off, earning strange looks from the entire restaurant.
I looked around at anywhere but kiara fvck, I forgot!
“Oh the ring!” I shouted, laughter erupting from everyone.
Kiara slipped out a giggle, causing my cheeks to grow red.
I slipped the hand that wasn’t holding kiara’s, inside my suit. I shuffled around the inside pocket until I felt the velvet box, still holding her hand and looked in to her eyes
“This must be the most-not-so-perfect proposal in the world, kiara” I bit my lip feeling stupid.
But,kiara didn’t say anything.
She only laughed slightly; her eyes were watering, or so, you could see her trying to blink away the tears.
“And, I didn’t plan it like this. But God!”
“God, kiara you drive me insane. Everybody thinks I’m crazy, when really….I’m not. I am not crazy. I’m crazy for you. You know, they say, when you find the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible. And…..”
She is that person.
“….I have found that person. ”
“Before I met you….well, before I actually met you, I was lost. I was like all the rest of the guys out there. I didn’t know what it was to love or to be loved. I thought….I thought it was meaningless. I thought it was something someone can live without. But then…. Then that moment came. We were in our first date and you showed me something I have never seen before. that was the first day I realized you weren’t like the others. You are one in seven billion. That you are mine and you were meant to mine.”
“I remember when my mom would annoy me with mushy love stories when I was a kid. ”
Mom’s laugh rang through my ears, but I knew she was smiling.
“One night before bed, she said ‘when you want a girl so bad….when you want to make her yours, you know….you get these feelings and you feel more scared than you will ever feel in your entire life. I didn’t believe her then but now, I understand what she meant. I am scared. But I need you. ”
I knew she was crying.
Kiara, I mean.
She wasn’t ‘crying’ but there was definitely tears down her cheeks.
I saw them, but it didn’t break my heart this time.
Because I knew they weren’t there because she was hurt.
“You, kiara, I must have you for my own. Entirely my own…”
I stared at her deep in the eyes, and it felt like she was the only thing, person there.
And no one else.
“Will you marry me?”
At that, everything was quiet.
She was quiet.
I was quiet.
Our parents were quiet.
The entire restaurant was quiet.
It seemed as though the whole world fell into a hush, but I knew it was just me.
My heart beat fast and it scared me more than anything. It felt forever, until she finally spoke.
“Yes” she whispered, her silent tears trickling down her cheek slowly.
“I will marry you.”
After that, that was all I cared about.
I didn’t care about the crowd going would.
Nor did I bother about my mother going insane around the place , shouting out invitations and other sh*t.
I didn’t even dare to look at anyone else.
Instead, I grabbed kiara and smashed her lips onto mine.
“Damn! I love you so much. ” I mumbled in between the kiss.
And before anything else could happen, I slyly slipped the diamond ring onto her small ring finger.
“I love you so much too.”
I brushed my lips against hers, the fading noises of cheers and screams overwhelming us.
“You are mine and no one else….”
And then, our lips collided once again, igniting those old sparks I never get used to.
