I'm so sorry that I haven't updated in AGES, but I hit a big pile of writer's block during vacation so it took me a while to think of the chapter.I'll try to update again as soon as possible.
P.S. I was AOGG Is My Life, but I changed my name so I can write for other books without people thinking that I'm Annifying everything.
"Now, mind how you were raised and make sure you don't get sick. The Lord only knows what diseases are floating around that place." Rachel instructed Anne knowingly.
Davy ran up to Anne, wrapped his arms around her legs and cried, "I don't want you to go Anne, I'll miss you. Don't forget to write, there's still a lot of things I want to know."
"I won't Davy. Now, you behave yourself, and be nice to your sister. Oh, I'll miss you all so much!" Anne exclaimed, with tears in her eyes.
"Today's a very big day. I'm going to ask her." Gilbert told his reflection as he combed his tangled hair. Then he ran downstairs to prepare the buggy.
"Oh, my little baby," Mary cried, pulling Gilbert into a constricting grip, "I'm going to miss you so much!"
"I'll miss you too Mum. Goodbye." Gilbert kissed his mother on the cheek and climbed inside the buggy beside his dad. They headed off towards Green Gables to pick up Anne.
Anne sighed and looked down the road.
"Now, what's wrong Anne? The Blythes aren't even late." Marilla asked.
"No, it's not that. I was just contemplating why…" Anne hesitated for a moment, deciding weather to continue or not. "Why Gilbert won't propose. I mean, I love him and I want to spend my life with him, but I don't know why he won't ask me."
"I see." Was all Marilla could say. Then, glancing down the road continued, "Speaking of Gilbert, Seems like he's right on time."
As the buggy pulled up, Anne said her final goodbyes before leaving for the train station.
On the ferry, Anne and Gilbert stood beside each other, watching P.E.I. fade from their vision. Gilbert took a breath and said, "Anne, I have something to ask you."
Anne perked up, "Yes Gil?"
Gilbert put his hand in his coat pocket and took hold of the small box. He was about to ask his question, when negative thoughts entered his mind, 'What if she says no? What if she later thinks it a mistake? What if I can't make her happy?' Gilbert let go of the box and improvised, "Um, can I walk you to your boarding house?"
Anne's hopeful expression deflated, "I suppose so." She replied half-heartedly
They walked together in silence, thoughts filling their minds.
In Anne's mind, thoughts such as, 'Doesn't he love me?' Haunted her. Gil's thoughts, having seen Anne's face, mostly consisted of, 'What did I do now?'
When they arrived, Anne entered the building and shut the door without saying good night. She was angry at Gilbert. He had gven her every intention that he'd propose, and he just kept avoiding the subject. Well, she would make him see how she felt, that she would.
