Randomly going through my phone I wait for him to call me and enlighten with the good news he's been hiding for a long time now. Today's the day he's going to finally tell me what it is all about. I scrunch my nose and let out a yawn, stretching my arms above my head. And right then I feel the vibration.
Jumping with joy, I answer the phone with a soul full of energy and excitement.
"Come on now, tell me the good news!" I whine and say, pouting like a five year old.
He chuckles at my childishness, and I know he is not in front of me, but I somehow know he is shaking his head on me.
"Okay, come over. You'll find it out..." He says, sincerely.
"Give me, like, five minutes!" I hang up the phone, cheerfully exclaiming this and run to wear ln my converse.
Then I drive to his apartment.
When I pull into the parking of the building he lives in, I have got a giddy feeling inside me. I grin at that and jog my way up the stairs. He lives only on the first floor, so it is convenient by the stairs. Ringing the bell of his flat, I try to look less impatient by hiding my smile.
But when the door still stays unlocked, I panic. I ring the bell some more times, but there is no response.
"Nathan..." I call his name, while knocking on the door. I am surprised when the door is pushed open with my hand. Furrowing my eyebrows in confusion, I step inside.
"Nate, where are you?" I call for him again, slightly tensed at the darkness of the room. I close the door behind me and reach for the switch board to switch on the lights.
But instead of the lights, some yellow lamps are switched on by those switches and I stand stunned by what I see in front of me. There is a huge painting of a girl on the front wall, sitting on a couch with a red wine in her hand. She is smiling and blushing at the same time and her brown locks are falling over her forehead and eyes.
That girl is me.
My Nathan is a great artist, that I've known all my life. But never in my dreams I have thought he'll make a painting of mine, and that too, so much more beautiful that I actually am. My eyes pool up with tears and my hands find their way to my gaping mouth. I face palm and watch the amazing art with widened eyes for a minute before he appears from the door right next to the wall that has the painting.
I glance at him and he smiles.
Then he walks towards me and take my hands from my mouth in his hands. He kisses both my knuckles one by one while his eyes never leave mine. So many emotions run through my veins at the moment. I know he loves me, but I always find myself amazed by the ways he shows that he loves me that much.
"I love you," he whispers while taking me in his arms gently. I hold him back and murmur in his chest "I love you too..."
We keep embracing each other for some moments and then he pulls away, scratching his head like he is trying to figure out what to do next. I watch him with amusement all the time he sighs and furrows and scoffs. Finally, he looks at me confidently, gathering the courage to speak.
"Well, this is my gift to you...for an occasion." He says, smiling bluntly.
"What occasion? My birthday is four months away..." I speak, confused.
"Yes, I know." He smiles fully and says.
And then he starts to kneel down.
Oh God Oh God Oh God!
My heart starts beating at the rate of thousand miles per second and I can't control my heavy breathes and shocked expressions. I didn't know such a random day will turn into one of the most important days of my life. I didn't know this will all come so soon.
I still can't figure out what to do, so I decide upon standing there dumbfounded.
He takes out a small box out of his jeans pocket and picks out a huge stone ring out of it. I almost faint when I realize the huge stone is a real diamond.
"Allie Mason, will you do me a favor and take me as a gift aka husband for the rest of your life?" He asks, extending his hand to put on the ring on the show for me. My left hand is in his' and I don't even know when he held it.
Usually, this is the moment when the girl says yes and they live happily ever after.
But knowing me and my not so friendly relations with my non cooperating life, it will not end normally, I just know!
"Yes! Nathan! I will...Oh crap when djd you plan all this? And this ring is so pretty, I want to keep it..oh oops! Off course I can keep it, it's mine afer all... And now probably should just shut up...." I end with a frown and blush embarrassingly.
My every time perfect boyfriend smiles to comfort me, and slips the ring in my finger. I squeal like a small girl and jump in his arms as soon as he stands up.
"I wanted your blabbering so bad! And you did it... I even imagined you thousand times in my head blabbering about senseleas things at the time of the proposal. Oh well...it had to happen, huh?" He says, holding my face in his hands and smirking amusingly.
"I didn't know what else to do..." I blush and look down saying this.
And looking down, I find the perfectly shining ring jn my finger. It made me smile and forget about whatwver awkwardness I have created.
I did not need to get awkward anyway. This is my Nathan! My boyfriend...soon to be husband ❤
