The Perfect Gift


I'm sure you realise by now, that tomorrow we have been together for five years. It's remarkable really. I imagine our friends wouldn't have pictured us lasting much beyond the first date, if we'd even made it that far. But somehow we managed. It wasn't always rosy. There were days when I know I thought it was too hard, and I should just walk away. And to let you find someone else. But I couldn't. You are such an important part of my life now that I can't imagine it any other way.

Well in honour of this milestone, I wanted to give you a wonderful anniversary present. Nothing material seemed worthy, I scoured the shops with my mother, and Pansy trying to find something appropriate. But just what do you give the woman who has given you everything?

Sure the diamonds, and the pearls are all breathtakingly beautiful, and would have looked amazing on you. But I know you find little importance in those frivolous gifts. So I endeavoured to find something that was perfect just for you. I spent many an hour trying to think of something to give you, and then it came to me. I was sitting on the toilet actually, gazing ahead, lost in my thoughts. When I happened upon my reflection in the mirror, and I realised just how much you have given me.

I could use many words to describe all you have given to me, but to be put it simple. You have given me everything I wanted, and all that I thought I'd never receive. First it was your friendship, strong and resilient through all the walls I placed before it, and somehow you managed to break through them all. To stand beside me, no matter what your friends said when you did. Then remarkably, against all the odds, you loved me. Just me. Draco Malfoy. I don't know how you came to, or why you do. But I wouldn't change it at all.

So what to give you? I really can't think of any material thing that could possible came close to giving you what you truly deserve. The only thing I can think to give you is me. All of me. Hopefully for the rest of your live, if the last five years are any indication, I couldn't begin to imagine wanting to be anywhere else till the day I die.
