Japhan ... Engaged?
Dan was very clearly taking a photo as I did under the blossom tree. I pretended not to see him, then suddenly darted forward, catching him around his waist. “You need to be less obvious!” I laughed.
“I was trying!” His enthusiasm mirrored mine, wrapping his arms around my neck. “You know what I like about it here?”
“Quite a lot, I would guess.” I smiled.
“We’re alone. It’s so private.” I looked around, and saw what he meant - there was no one else in sight; just the endless gorgeous pink flowers, and the lake.
“Good.” I sighed. Spontaneous trips were something we should do more often - although only on this one could this happen. I leaned forward and kissed him. “I love you.”
“You too.” He craned his neck up. “So much right now. This was a great idea.” His eyes sparkled when they met mine again, and a rare smile found his lips. “Wanna walk?” He suggested.
“Wow. For once off the sofa! I’m proud.”
“Shut up!” He laughed again, shoving my arm as we took a path with branches curled over the top, the occasional petal falling on our heads.
“Pretty ducks…” He had his phone out again. I bit my lip, my stomach flipping over and over and butterflies - maybe birds at this point, actually - swooping around it. I used the moment while he was distracted.
“Help me think of a witty but ironic caption…” He mused, still not having seen me.
“Are you ever going to get off your phone?” I hinted. His eyes flickered to me and then back to the phone for a second, and then back to me as he realized.
“Dan Howell,” I stood up, and suddenly he was falling back, the look of shock on his face now for a completely different reason. I gasped as a loud splash hit my ears, and jumped back, unable to avoid the tidal wave he caused. “Dan!?”
“Help me!” He yelled, trying unsuccessfully to get out. I reached down and grabbed his arm, heaving him up. He lay on the ground for a minute, gasping and dripping before suddenly rolling over to look up at me. “You were saying?” He whispered.
“Daniel.” I waited for him to get up, taking his hands and pulling him close. “Will you marry me?”
He didn’t answer straight away, just pulled ny into another kiss. “Of course.” He breathed finally.
“Only you,” I giggled, unable to stop myself. “Would fall in a lake as I tried to propose.” His finger found its way into the ring and he just started at me for a long moment. “And maybe that’s why I love you so much.”
“Is lake kiss nice?” He teased.
“Not really.” I made a face. I frowned then. “Are you crying?” I was amazed. He turned his gaze to the ground, and I moved a hand from his waist to his chin, making him look up at me. “It’s fine.” I wiped the tears (and probably quite a lot of pond water) away, pulling him into a wet hug. I didn’t care.
“I love you, Phil. I don’t say it enough. I really love you.”
“I love you, too.” I murmured in his ear. He shivered, and hugged me tighter. I pushed him back enough so that I could kiss him properly and no more, letting our lips meet in silence, my eyes closing automatically. His hands tangled around my neck, kissing me back gently. I ran my thumb over his cheekbone, smiling at the tears on his face
“You’re perfect just the way you are. Unrelated, but please never change.”
“I won’t.” He said quietly against my lips, letting our foreheads meet. I stared into his eyes, and everything around faded - the beautiful surroundings, the distant voices, even the dampness of the boy I held in my arms. “If you don’t.” And just when I thought my heart could hold no more love…
