For the last time, I don't own Inception...


Arthur heard that Cobb was going to be in France visiting Miles this weekend. Anxiously he picked up the phone and dialed Cobb's number. It rang a few times before a familiar voice picked up.

"Hello?"

"Cobb." Arthur exhaled.

"Arthur? What's going on?" Cobb asked, happy to hear from his friend.

"I heard you were going to be in town. Are you free at all?" Arthur asked.

"Yeah. I can meet you and Ariadne for dinner when I get there if you'd like."

"Oh, uh, I was hoping we could talk." Arthur nervously replied.

"Ok…is there something wrong? Are you and Ariadne having problems?" Cobb asked, worried.

"What? No! Not at all. I just have something I want to talk to you about." Arthur replied nervously.

"Ok." Cobb said uncertainly.

"Call me when you land, we'll meet somewhere." Arthur abruptly said, hanging up.

Cobb ended the call and stared at his phone. "Well that was weird." He said to himself and turned to James and Philippa.

"James! Philippa! Are you guys all packed?" He called.

"Yes daddy!" They shouted from outside and continued to run around. Cobb smiled and shook his head. It had already been a year and a half since the incident with Cobol and they hadn't had any other problems with them, so he was assuming everything would be fine.

"Are you ready to visit Uncle Arthur?" Cobb asked when James and Philippa ran into the house.

"Yes! And See Ariadne!" Philippa jumped up excitedly.

Cobb chuckled. "I'm sure she'll be surprised and happy to see you guys. Now go get some sleep, we have a long day ahead of us tomorrow." Cobb told his kids and they pouted before racing to their rooms, seeing who could get to bed first.


Arthur sighed as he ended the call. He rubbed his face and looked up, finding Ariadne staring at him with her eyebrows raised.

"What's wrong?" She asked.

"Nothing's wrong. Everything's perfect." He replied, grinning.

"It didn't look perfect a minute ago." Ariadne said, worried.

"I just haven't been sleeping too well." Arthur lied. Ariadne frowned and cupped his face in her hands.

"Poor baby." She teased.

Arthur scowled and rolled his eyes playfully. "Cobb's going to be in town for a few days."

"He is? Is he bringing the kids?" Ariadne asked, her face brightening at the thought.

"I don't know. He didn't say."

"I hope he does. James and Philippa are so adorable." Ariadne gushed and Arthur chuckled.

Ariadne smiled and studied Arthur again. She didn't see any dark circles under his eyes and he had been sleeping through the night.

"Arthur, what's going on? I know you're lying about sleep. You get plenty of sleep and you don't look tired. Besides, being in the dream business you get used to having weird sleeping schedules. So that can't be it. Don't lie to me." Ariadne frowned and placed a hand on her hip.

Arthur stood up and kissed her, trying to change the topic. He didn't want to talk about it with her. It would ruin the surprise. Cobb was the one he needed right now and he had to keep his secret for a little longer.

"Nothing's wrong." Arthur assured her, but she still looked skeptical.

"Fine. Don't tell me." She angrily said, but she held her ground, not wanting to run away even though it's the first thing that came to mind.

"Come on, let's have a nice lunch." Arthur told her, pulling her to the kitchen.

"Hold on, I'm going to go change into something more comfortable. You should too." Ariadne called over her shoulder as she left to change.

Arthur shook his head happily and slipped his hand into his suit pocket. He fiddled with the small box that was nestled safely inside his jacket. He knew he wanted to ask her, but he just wasn't sure how to. He hoped that Cobb would be able to give him some advice, although he already had something in mind.

Ariadne's soft footsteps broke him out of his thoughts and he quickly pulled his hand out of the pocket, turning to the cabinets to pull out some pots. Ariadne searched through the fridge and cabinets, trying to figure out what to make.

"What are you in the mood for?" She asked, her voice muffled.

Arthur turned to look at her and smiled when he saw her small form in the pantry. He walked over to her and stood behind her.

"I can make a salad." Arthur whispered to her, causing her to shiver.

"Sounds goo." She said breathlessly. "How about some pasta to go with it?"

"Salmon sounds better." Arthur replied, kissing her neck softly. She squirmed and turned to face him.

"If you keep doing that we won't be eating. And I'm really starving." Ariadne said, flustered.

Arthur chuckled. "Alright. Let's make something to eat."

"You're so going to pay for that." Ariadne warned him.

"Maybe." Arthur smirked and quickly got to work, ignoring Ariadne's gaze.


It was close to six on Friday night that Arthur received the call from Cobb. He was glad that Ariadne had an evening class because she wouldn't question why he wanted to have dinner with Cobb alone.

He nervously made his way to the restaurant Cobb had made reservations for. His thoughts were muddled and he hated that he wasn't his calm, collected self. When Cobb spotted Arthur walking in, he stood up and made his way to his friend.

"Arthur. How have you been?" He asked cheerfully.

Arthur cleared his throat. "Great." He grinned. "And yourself?"

"It's good to be home." Cobb admitted, his grin widening. He took in Arthur's disheveled appearance. "So what's really going on?"

Arthur sighed. "Let's sit down first."

Cobb nodded and they followed the hostess to their table. She handed them their menus and Arthur hastily opened it, ignoring Cobb's gaze.

"Ok. Talk." Cobb rested his elbow on the table and held his chin.

"I want to propose to Ariadne." Arthur blurted out, surprising himself.

Cobb smiled. "Well congratulations. So what's the problem?"

"I'm not sure what to do." Arthur admitted.

"You don't know how to propose?" Cobb teased.

Arthur glared at him and rubbed his face. "It's not that. I just, I want it to be perfect, but I'm not sure how to do it."

"You don't need to make it perfect. If it comes from the heart, it will be perfect to her." Cobb told him.

Arthur looked down at his hands and sighed. "I do have something in mind, but I'm not sure if she'd like it."

"Is it in a public place?" Cobb asked.

"Why? Is that a bad idea?" Arthur asked, panicking.

"Not necessarily. It just depends on what kind of public place. A restaurant, I don't think she'd like that."

"I wanted to take her to the Eiffel Tower for dinner, walk around afterwards, and propose under it." Arthur said.

"I think she'd like that." Cobb smiled. Arthur sighed in relief. "Just make sure to make the proposal you. Something special to both of you. Not something cliché. Although the Eiffel Tower may be a bit cliché." Cobb chuckled and Arthur blushed.

"I have something else to go with it though. I'm nervous about it though." Arthur replied.

"What is it?"

"I'm not going to tell you. Ariadne can tell you." Arthur smirked. Cobb grinned, glad to see that Arthur was feeling better.

"So are we going to eat or what?" Cobb asked, changing the subject and getting Arthur's mind off of what he was going to do.


Arthur had set up reservations at the restaurant inside the Eiffel Tower. It took him a few hours, but he finally got in. He then set up other plans, making sure everything would be where he needed them to be. He even paid Eames to set up a few things. Cobb was told to stay hidden around the Eiffel Tower, recording it for them.

Cobb was skeptical at first, but figured it must be something big for him to want it recorded. It would make a good surprise for Ariadne too. Arthur had given Cobb strict orders to not make himself known at all and just bring over the camera the next day.

As Arthur waited for Ariadne he began to fiddle with his tie, straightening it, loosening it, tightening it back up, and sighing when he noticed he was fidgeting. He spotted Ariadne walking towards him in a deep blue dress that had one strap and hung low on her shoulders. It ended just above the knee and he felt his breath leave him for a moment.

"Hi. So you got reservations huh?" She grinned playfully.

Arthur nodded and took her hand in his, kissing it softly before lacing his fingers with hers. "Let's go."

The night went smoothly. Ariadne didn't seem to suspect anything and if she noticed his fidgeting and unusual clumsiness, she didn't comment on it. As they walked down the stairs she began commenting on the structure of the tower and Arthur couldn't help but stare at her.

When they reached the bottom, a man handed him a guitar case and Ariadne looked at him puzzled.

"Well that was weird." She said, but when she saw Arthur pulling out the guitar she gasped. "What are you doing?" She asked.

Arthur shook his head slightly and wrapped the guitar strap around his neck before strumming slightly to check the tuning. Ariadne watched him curiously, surprised that he was going to play in public.

He started strumming again, a familiar tune filling her ears. She looked up at Arthur, her eyes wide. She knew what he was doing.

Forever can never be long enough for me
Feel like I've had long enough with you
Forget the world now, we won't let them see
But there's one thing left to do

Now that the weight has lifted
Love has surely shifted my way

Marry me today and every day
Marry me if I ever get the nerve to say hello in this cafe
Say you will, say you will

Ariadne's eyes started to water and she quickly wiped them, not wanting to ruin her make up. She covered her mouth with her hands and continued to stare at Arthur as he sung to her.

Together can never be close enough for me
Feel like I am close enough to you
You wear white and I'll wear out the words I love you
And you're beautiful

Now that the wait is over
And love and has finally shown her my way

Marry me today and every day
Marry me if I ever get the nerve to say hello in this cafe
Say you will, say you will

Ariadne let out a choked sob and laughed afterwards. This was not what she expected to happen tonight. Arthur was staring at her as he continued on, his gaze full of love.

Promise me you'll always be happy by my side
I promise to sing to you when all the music dies

And marry me today and everyday
Marry me if I ever get the nerve to say hello in this cafe
Say you will, say you will marry me

When he finished strumming he knelt down on a knee and pulled out the ring that he had kept for the past few months. He opened it and she gasped, her suspicions confirmed.

"Ariadne."

"Yes!" She cut him off before he could ask. He smiled, relieved, and took off the guitar, placing it in the case. She immediately jumped into his arms and kissed him. There was clapping in the background, but both of them chose to ignore it, too caught up in each other to care or be embarrassed.

"You played in front of people." She whispered to him, pulling away slightly to look at him.

"I know." Arthur replied, leaning in and kissing her again.

"I love you." She said between kisses.

"I love you too." Arthur replied, resting his forehead against hers.

"And I'm so holding you to the 'I promise to sing to you when all the music dies' line." Ariadne smiled through tears. Arthur chuckled and pulled her closer to him.

"Always." He whispered.

Cobb and Eames watched from a distance, grinning. They spotted each other and nodded, walking slowly so they wouldn't draw any attention.

"Well it looks like that old stick-in-the-mud does have some creativity after all." Eames grinned.

Cobb nodded. "Who would have thought he would marry our Architect?"

"Well it was bloody obvious from the beginning! It made me sick!" Eames said, turning to Cobb in shock. "You didn't notice it?"

Cobb looked down, embarrassed. "I had my own distractions to deal with then."

"Right." Eames quietly said, turning back to the couple embracing.

"Let's give them some privacy. We'll hear all about it tomorrow." Cobb pulled Eames away, leaving Arthur and Ariadne in the distance.
