I was at the park, with snoopy, my dog. The dog he had gifted me. I missed him, a lot. I walked up to a bench and sat down. I removed Snoopy’s leash and let him stroll around. I opened my phone’s gallery and kept our album on slideshow mode and watched as our pictures slid. ”God! I love him so much!”, I thought. A smile tingled on my lips when favorite picture popped up. He asked the waiter to click it. He picked me up, while I buried my face in his neck, trying to hide my blush. I felt like I found a reason to live. At that moment, my life was like a love story. He has been, all that I had ever wanted. I giggled when I saw a picture of us in which I was kissing his cheek and he was grinning with his eyes wide, like a cute baby.
Suddenly, my phone started vibrating in my hand and his name showed up on the screen. I smiled and took his call. “Hello, I miss you! You are so busy these days…”, I said. ”Hey! Listen, we are going on a date tonight, be ready by 7 pm! Dress fancy, okay? This is going to be the last time that I will call you my girlfriend. After tonight, this relationship is over! Ugh! I can’t do this anymore…”, he said over the phone.
I dropped my phone and tears were already filling my eyes. Snoopy, who was rolling on the grass, came to me and started licking my hand, trying to ask me not to cry. I leashed him, kept my mobile phone, in my pocket and started walking back home. As soon as I stepped in my house, I felt like I lost all the energy I had and I fell on the floor.
I spent my day crying over him until it was time for me to get ready. I showered, dried my hair and straightened them. I wore the black dress we bought together. He liked it so much… His face lit up when I stepped out of the trial room, wearing this dress. I felt a bit sad that all of this was now for nothing.
I did my makeup and sprayed on the perfume he liked. I then wore my mother’s watch, the one that always reminded me of her and the pearl necklace that he had gifted me. I remember, he walked up to me, holding a box in his hand and gave it to me, slightly blushing! That box had this necklace it in it. It was on our third date. A tear slides down my cheek, at this memory, and I quickly wipe it away, making sure that I wasn’t spoiling my makeup. I kept my lip balm and my phone in my clutch and walked out of my room. As I was heading down the stairs, I heard the doorbell. I quickly rush to the door and wear my heels that I had kept near the entrance and then open the door.
There he was, looking amazing as ever. He rushed in to hug me and I could smell his cologne. The one I was addicted to. He had his amazing smile plastered on his face as he checked out. “Oh my god! You’re so beautiful!”, he said to me and all my sadness vanished. I started blushing at his compliment. He was wearing a black tuxedo. We were matching again. How cliché. “You don’t look bad yourself!”, I told him. He grinned at me and held his hand out for me, which I gladly took.
We walked to his car and he opened the door for me! He’s such a gentleman. I don’t know what I did that made him fall out of love for me. In the car, he held my hand as he drove, his smile never leaving his face. This made me feel calm. I hummed on a song and his smile widened. I asked him where we were going and he asked me to wait, like he always did.
When we reached our destination, I was mesmerized. It was the most beautiful place, I had ever seen.In front of me was a stone pathway, which led to a table under a tree. The tree was decorated with Christmas lights. It looked amazing. There was a lake in front of the tree which glistened because of the Christmas lights. I walked up to the table, not even turning towards him for a second. When I reached the table, I turned back to ask him how he did this and was shocked at what I saw.
He was on his knees, holding a black box, which had a ring in it. It was the same ring, which I saw in the store while we both were goofing around one evening. I had jokingly told him that I wanted this ring on our marriage day. My eyes widened when I realized what was happening. He was smiling as he looked up to me.
“Let’s end this relationship and start a new one. I can’t wait a single day more for this. I love you very much. You are the best thing that’s ever been mine. So let me do the honors of asking you to be my life partner. Will you marry me?”
And that day, my dream came true.
