The Lines Begin To Blur

Rose wrapped her arms around him. "I love you so much," she whispered. Her lips pressed against his, butterflies fluttering around in her stomach.

"Rose, you're the most perfect person I've ever met," he replied, his blue eyes meeting hers. "You're my everything, the sunshine of my life."

She giggled. "I'm so glad we've finally got together. I've loved you for years you know."

"Me too," he answered. "I never went after you because I thought I wasn't good enough for you, but now I know how foolish that was."

Rose smiled. "Well, I'll have you know, that you are incredibly good for me. In fact, sometimes I feel like I'm not good enough for you."

Lorcan shook his head. "That's crazy."

She giggled. "I'm a bit crazy I guess."

"You're perfect, that's what you are," Lorcan said with a smile. "In fact…" he stood, getting up off the bed. His abs reflected in the moonlight, sending chills down her spine. He was a god.

Getting down on one knee, he grabbed Rose's hand. Her eyes started to water. Was he doing what she thought he was doing? "Rose, I know we only been dating for a few hours, but I feel like I've known you my entire life. You're the sun of my days, and the moon of my nights. My whole world revolves around you Rose, and I need you in my life, for the rest of my life." He reached into his pocket, pulling out a small black box. Opening it, he revealed a large diamond, surrounding by small emeralds. "Will you marry me Rose Weasley?"

She nodded. "Yes! Oh Lorcan, yes! I'd love to marry you!"

He slid the ring onto her finger, smiling at her. It fit perfectly! Holding her hand up, she looked at the precious ring. Lily would be so jealous!

She threw her arms around Lorcan, hugging him tightly. "I've never been happier!"

Lorcan grinned, pulling her in for a sensuous snog.

The two of them broke apart panting. He rested her forehead against hers, their noses touching slightly.

"Wow," she whispered.

"Wow indeed," he replied. "What a day."

"I agree, I still can't believe we're engaged!" Rose smiled excitedly.

"I know, it'll be great. I've been waiting so long for a moment like this, where I would look a girl in the eyes and know she was the one."

Rose blushed. "Lorcan, you're so sweet."

He chuckled. "I know, and I'm all yours."

Their lips met again.

Rose awoke with a gasp. Sitting upright, she rubbed her eyes. Looking around, she noticed she was in her room. Tears filled her eyes when she realized it was only a dream. How could she have been so foolish to think he would want her?

Lorcan would never want to be with her. Why would he when he had her?

Feeling dejected, Rose turned over in her bed, tears pouring down her face. Why couldn't Lorcan love her? Why couldn't they just be together? What did the other girl have that she didn't? All these thoughts and more plagued her mind as she lay in bed. She cried herself to sleep.
