Dinner and a Song
It had been a whole year since that day and it was now spring and the cute little couple have been together for about two years including the months they were away from each other. Tomoyo and Eriol were closer then ever and Tomoyo moved back to the city with Eriol and they saw each other everyday. Eriol couldn't have been happier. Sonomi was actually glad that they got back together. She was glad that he got to sign her cook and helped her make Christmas dinner. Tomoyo and Eriol kissed and talked in her bedroom most of that night it was perfect, although some of the kids some of the kids interrupted them and Eriol enjoyed throwing pillows at them. Everyone was so happy to finally meet the man that Tomoyo was in love with and we're glad they got back together; Eriol blushed the whole time feeling somewhat shy epically around the older women who completely went off on how fine he looked. Tomoyo teased him, but just a little about it later.
Once Eriol got settled back into his routine he went back home without Tomoyo because he knew she wanted to spend time with her friends and family. When Eriol told Syaoran and Sakura about what happened, Sakura squealed herself until she fainted for lack of oxygen. Syaoran panicked. Once Tomoyo came back everything was perfect. Today was a special day and . . .well, just read what happens next:
Eriol and Tomoyo were sitting on the park bench. Eriol's head was supported on Tomoyo's lap as she read through a contract she received from J-music's. Eriol sung out loud every now and then and Tomoyo would smile loving the sound of his smooth voice. Eriol's Ipod rested on his chest and Tomoyo sighed turning another page holding a magnifying glass. "Anything interesting?" Eriol said stopping his music and taking the small speakers from his ears. "Well, they want a percentage of everything I make, although they don't say it in plain English. I think that's the part where they try to rip you off." Tomoyo sighed looking down to Eriol. Eriol chuckled. "How much of a percentage?" He asked. Tomoyo sighed closing the contract with the magnifying glass still in it. "Thirty I think. Looks like I'll have to get a lawyer for this one."
Eriol whistled. "Greedy buggers aren't they."
Tomoyo simply nodded. Eriol smiled looked to Tomoyo. "Did I tell you that you look beautiful today?" He said taking her hand. Tomoyo blushed lightly and giggled. "Eriol, I'm wearing short pants and a tee-shirt with tennis shoes." She said. Eriol shrugged. "I bet if you wore poison ivy you'd look fantastic." He joked. Tomoyo rolled her eyes. "I've decided what I'm going to do with the Manor." Eriol said suddenly. "Huh?" Tomoyo said confused looking back down to him. "I was thinking I would use it for a summer home or something and possibly rent it out for honeymooners." He said. "Eriol that's fantastic. You're not getting rid of it." She smiled. Eriol nodded. "But I have to get it clean, it's old and in great shape but it's dusty." He sighed. Tomoyo smiled as Eriol sat up next to her putting his arm around. Tomoyo smiled and rested her hand on Eriol's chest and her head on his shoulder.
"You wanna go to Tomoeda next weekend?" Eriol asked. Tomoyo lifted her head. "What for?" She said. Eriol shrugged. "To see the stars." He said simply. Tomoyo smiled. "Now you're the one surprising me." She said. "Oh, really?" Eriol chuckled. "Well, then do you miss your family?" He asked. Tomoyo thought for a moment and then answered. "Just a little." She smiled somewhat guilty. "Well, then look to your right and then you're left." He said. Tomoyo sat up puzzled by Eriol's odd jump from subject to subject.
"Eriol are you sick?" She said touching his forehead checking for a fever. Eriol's eyes narrowed. "No, I'm fine." He answered and smiled. "Just do it."
Tomoyo looked to her right and paused seeing cherry blossom pedals dancing on the wind and little kids playing ball. Then she looked to her right seeing Sonomi standing where with a smile as two people crossed the street behind her. "Mom?" Tomoyo said standing up in surprise. Tomoyo walked toward her mother and then Chiharu and her husband appeared. "Chiharu?" She said confused she almost thought she was dreaming seeing everything she knew just popping up. Syaoran and Sakura were behind her with a smile. "Oh my God." She gasped not noticing they were there.
Eriol just sat and smiled. Then Rika and Dave appeared along with other people that she knew including Nobu-san and his wife and kids. "Eriol what is this about?" She said turning to him. Eriol stopped and stepped over to her. "In the two years I've always been the one to be surprisedby you, but not it's my turn now." He said and reached for her hand. "Eriol what are you talking about?" She said confused as Eriol took something out of his pocket and he got down on one knee. Tomoyo's heart sped up and she stifled a gasp covering mouth.
"Tomoyo Daidoji," He began looking Tomoyo square in the eyes. "You have made my life an adventure, you have showed me values to make a strong relationship and you have been there no matter what. You have taught me so much and I enjoyed being with you and being without you is like not having the prefect ingredient a soup." He laughed. Tomoyo smiled feeling happy tears running down her cheek.
"But it would give me great honor if you would be my one and only love, and my wife." He said revealing the ring. It band was gold with a large diamond in the middle and small cut diamonds sparkling around it like a picture frame. Tomoyo smiled watery trying to keep calm then everyone started talking at once to Tomoyo telling her say yes because Eriol was such a wonderful person. Tomoyo looked back to Eriol who was smiling to her. Tomoyo nodded. "Yes." She laughed and nodding. "I will." She said. Eriol stood and gently slipped the ring on her finger. Tomoyo smiled feeling more happy tears running down her cheek. "It took you long enough." Tomoyo laughed. Eriol smiled to her and they kissed each other. Everything cheered. Tomoyo and Eriol broke away and he lifted her by her waist spinning her around. Tomoyo smiled and when Eriol brought her down he kissed her again.
"Oh, I'm going to have a chief for a son-in-law." Sonomi squealed and ran over hugging Eriol breaking their kiss. Tomoyo smiled as Eriol gasped from his future-mother-in-law's bear hug.
In the end Eriol and Tomoyo got married in the Manor in Europe, Tomoyo thought it would be perfect to give everyone they invited-- which was about 200 people-- a chance to see something new. Eriol did use the Manor as he planned and just like in his dream Eriol was teaching Tomoyo to ride a horse, although he never allowed her to drive in his Jaguar after their first date. Also like in the dream Syaoran and Sakura were expecting their first child and Sakura was very pregnant and was due in one month. Rika and Dave got married the next year as Tomoyo predicted on her wedding night with Eriol. Eriol's new cook book was published after the wedding and he called it Dinner and a Song because Eriol was the cook --Dinner-- and Tomoyo was a professional singer now that was about to go on tour after releasing her first ever album called Bloom-- Song. And he dictated it to her including a soup recipe she gave him; it was on the best-seller list all summer long and got lots of awards. In the end just like a fairy-tale they lived happily ever after.
