Okay, there aren't enough Secrets fics up. WE NEED SOME! This takes place after "There's No Place Like Home"
I gave myself an once-over in the mirror. I had to admit: I looked pretty good today. Austin was taking me on a date to Disney World, a place we hadn't gone to together since I got back from New York five years ago. You see, I've graduated from college now. With flying colors, I might add.
Anyways, back to my clothes. I had thrown on a pair of Lucky skinny jeans, a cute navy ruffle tank top, and a pair of Converse. Original, I know, but Austin had told me to dress comfortably tonight. Not that I would dress any differently. I don't want to draw more attention to myself at Disney World than necessary.
Austin and I were strolling towards Splash Mountain, hand in hand. It was slow progress, since we would have to stop every two minutes to kiss. In the past four years, Austin and I had fallen deeper and deeper in love. I couldn't live without him.
Finally, after about thirty minutes, the Splash Mountain ride started joyfully slow. It gave me and Austin more time to make out.
"Guess what?" I giggled.
"What?" he asked, chuckling.
"I love you," I whispered, burrowing my face into his neck.
"I love you, Burke," he replied. I loved it when he didn't say "I love you, too". When he didn't add the "too", I knew that he wasn't just responding to my declaration, but saying it on his own.
I lifted my head up and kissed him, hard. At the top of the final drop in Splash Mountain, the log creaked to a stop. I glanced around confused, only to see Austin getting to his feet. Strangely, our log had leg room today. "What are you doing?" I asked, alarmed.
Instead of answering, Austin got down on one knee. My face felt like a heat source had been switched on. "Burke, I love you. I love your laugh, your eyes, everything. Will you make me the happiest person alive and marry me?" Austin finished his proposal with lust in his eyes. I could stare into those turquoise irises and get lost, forever.
I realized with a jolt that Austin was still waiting for an answer. I glanced down at his hands, discovering a velvet box in his calloused hands. The ring placed within was simple, but beautiful. "Of course, Austin." I replied. He placed the ring on my finger and kissed me, full of love and promise.
