Six Little Words
I quickly glanced in the mirror, taking a good look at the long white dress that I had on. It has been the most amazing week. I can hardly believe that I led my team to the national championship in the Frozen Four. I never in a million years imagined that I could go so far. The best part was that Adam was able to be there with me, cheering me on from the stands. Even after four years, I still can't believe the sacrifice he made for me. Although, I would defiantly say it worked out the best for him. Since being traded to Boston, Adam has led the Bruins to two consecutive Stanley Cup Championships. I took one last glance in the mirror before heading out of mine and Adam's bedroom and into the living room where Adam was waiting for me. Today was our four years anniversary and Adam was taking me out for dinner to celebrate. "You look beautiful," he greets me as he opens the door for me and we head out f our apartment and down to the car. Adam holds my hand as we drive the twenty minutes to the hospital. His palms are sweaty and he is shaking. He's nervous. I wonder why. It's not like we've never been out to dinner together before. Maybe he has something up his sleeve for tonight, like maybe those six words I have been dying to hear: Julie Gaffney, will you marry me? Oh, who am I kidding? He is just nervous about his game tomorrow. He always gets like this the night before a big game.
We arrived at the restaurant and Adam quickly rushed over to open my door for me. He grabs my hand and we walk hand and hand inside the restaurant where we are seated in a private room. The waiter approached us, asking if we were ready to order yet. "Yeah, I'll have a Sirloin stake and a baked potato with sour cream only." Adam answered as the waiter wrote it down. Adam then glanced at me and smiled. "What about you Jules?"
I thought for a moment before finally deciding that what Adam was having sounded good. "I'll have the same please." I replied and the waiter started walking away.
"Oh and sir," Adam stated and the waiter turned to face him. "Could you bring us a bottle of your best wine?" As the waiter exited, Adam turned back to me and smiled. "I love you Jules. I hope you know that."
"Are you okay Adam? You seem a little tense."
He reach out and grabbed my hand, "don't worry Jules. I'm okay. I'm just a little nervous about the game tomorrow. You know how I get."
I smiled as he leaned in and kissed my lisp softly. I knew it. I knew he was just nervous about the game. Why am I being so impatient about this? I know Adam loves me and that is all that matters. Oh who am I kidding? I haven't been patient a day in my life. Maybe I should just ask him. My thoughts were interrupted by our food arriving at our table. Adam and I ate in silence and I could tell that he was contemplating something, but I couldn't put my finger on it. Finally after a half an hour of eating in silence Adam finally spoke, "Jules, can we talk," he paused, "about us?"
"Sure," I smiled, secretly hoping that this would be the moment I had been thinking about for four long years.
"Okay, this might take a little while, but don't speak until I'm finished, okay?" I nodded and he continued. ""We've been going out for four years and we have had a lot of great times together and some hard times a s well. Especially in that first summer. Anyway, I've been thinking for a while now about the way things have been going between us. I think we have matured a lot since we started dating and I know I could have never made it the last four years without you. I guess what I'm saying is I've loved you ever since the day I first saw you and now more than ever." I watched as he reach into his pocket, pulling out a box. He kneeled before me, on one knee, taking my hand in his own. "Julie Gaffney, will you marry me?"
I fought the tears that were forming in my eyes. This was honestly my best dream come true. I had hoped that this night would bring about those words, but no amount of wishing could have prepared me for actually hearing those words. I smiled as I looked at the ring he was presenting me. Finally letting the tears spill over, I gave him my answer. "Yes Adam, I would love to marry you." I saw him smile as he got up off the floor and came closer to me, carefully taking the ring out of the box and slipping it on my finger. He then pulled me to his lips and we embraced in one of the most passionate kisses I had ever experienced.
As we parted he spoke again. "I wasn't sure if you would say yes or not. I wanted to ask you years ago, but I wasn't sure if you wanted to or if you were ready yet."
"Adam, I have been waiting four years for you to ask me. I was getting ready to ask you if you didn't ask me soon." I admitted as he smiled at me and sat back down in his seat across from me.
"Oh really? Now that would have been quite interesting. Now I wish I had waited a little longer. You know, it's not everyday that a guy gets proposed to." He took my hand before asking, "are you ready? I think we have a little celebrating to do."
I nodded my head as we both got up from the table and headed to the cashier's counter to pay. After paying, Adam and I headed home to "celebrate."
