having a hard time believing that this moment was truly reality. She sometimes felt like her relationship with
Adam was too good to be true. Sure, they
had moments where they didn’t always agree.
However, even when they challenged one another and there was still a
mutual respect for the difference of opinion.
Their conversations were always invigorating, yet they could sit in
silence and be perfectly comfortable.
here with Adam, she sat in disbelief.
She was amazed that he had gone out of his way in order to make this
night so special for her. She didn’t
need over the top romance, but it certainly was flattering to see him put in so
much effort. Adam didn’t initially
strike her as the romantic type.
However, she was quick to see through this façade as their witty banter
via text messages progressed. It was
truly something she looked forward to on a daily basis.
here tonight, Taylor wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Basking in the day’s events, she had a challenging
time steering her mind away from thoughts of a future with Adam. Taylor knew it was ridiculous and had no
intention of brining this up to him as she was nervous that it might scare him
away. Things were so perfect between
them, that she knew not to rock to boat.
He would talk about his thoughts on their future together when he was
ready. For now, she knew he was happy
and that was good enough for her. It
just felt nice to feel so safe and secure in a relationship. As much as she loved this beautiful and
thoughtful gift he had given her, she couldn’t help but feel a microscopic stab
of disappointment after seeing the perfectly square blue Tiffany box. Way too
soon, Swift. Keep it together!
complimented the music that danced through the room. It hadn’t escaped her that these were all
songs that she loved. It was then that
he informed her that he hand selected the playlist for the evening. That really struck Taylor straight through
the heart. Music was her love language
and when she could connect to someone over music it truly left her dazzled.
Adam spent the evening selecting endless courses of decadent foods. They talked and laughed while frequently
exchanging the same “come hither” look that always reassured the spark between
them. Every so often, Adam would reach
out and grab her hand, tracing circles on her palm with him index finger. Skin to skin contact with Adam always gave
her a twinge of excitement, and he was purposeful in his actions that evening.
The sweet smell of the dessert she ordered began to fill the air. That familiar scent of baked goods always
gave her comfort. Adam gave her comfort.
Taylor sighed again.
that he fidgeted slightly as the night progressed. What was he not telling her? Taylor decided not to get too caught up in
the details. Perhaps he was just as affected
by her as she was by him—and that was a thought that she really wanted to hang
As their dining experience came to an end,
Adam suggested they walk for a few blocks.
such a beautiful night.” He said.
and couldn’t think of anything she would rather do that stroll arm and arm with
Adam through the city under the twinkling lights.
stepped out onto the streets, the air was crisp on her face. The sounds of the city began to fill in
around them. In the distance they heard
car horns honking as they witnessed a cab driver sail down the street. They could see couples strolling hand-in-hand
in the park across the street. Taylor smiled to herself. That was always something she hand wanted to
do—take an evening stroll with a man that she loved. No security, just him to keep her safe.
continued down the sidewalk, Taylor couldn’t help but notice a small group of
girls. They were speaking animatedly to
one another, with failed attempts to discreetly stare at Taylor and Adam. Taylor smiled to herself—it seemed like they
might be fans. She really didn’t mind
visiting for a moment. She knew how much
her fans had done for her, and really, what was 5-minutes of her night? She was hoping that Adam wouldn’t mind if
they stopped and said hello. Though he
typically didn’t mind greeting fans, he certainly had his moments and the way
that this evening was going Taylor was sure he had other plans for her. She smiled to herself at the thought of them

“I think you
have some admirers” Adam said as he peered at her.
“Do you mind
if we just stop and take a picture real quick—they look sweet!” Taylor replied.
not love, whatever you want.” Said Adam.
noticed Adam appeared to analyze each of the girls as they approached. She couldn’t help but chuckle as she knew
that they certainly had different fanbases and this was something he was still
getting used to.
her off guard when he offered to take a photo of Taylor with the girls. Perhaps he was coming around to the
idea. The girls proceeded to huddle in
behind Taylor. He took a snap on one of
their phones, and had them pose one more time for another picture on his phone.
and Adam excused themselves from the girls, it hit Taylor how bad her feet were
beginning to hurt.
“Baby, I don’t
think I can walk another block. Though,
I am not opposed to you carrying me.” She said with a coy smile.
returned her gaze as they both silently reminisced about the time they spent at
her beach house and couldn’t keep their hands to themselves. Taylor had stubbed her toe coming down the
water slide and she might have played up the level of pain ever so
slightly. Her gentle giant quickly came
to her rescue and tossed her over his back.
She never wanted to let go.
to reality, she observed as Adam made a call for their ride to pick them
up. Almost instantaneously the black SUV
pulled up beside them.
up in the vehicle and headed back down the busy streets of the city to Taylor’s
As soon as
they arrived, Taylor couldn’t help but feed exhausted from the day’s
activities. As much as she desired Adam
to peel her out of her dress, she wanted nothing more than to put on one of his
t-shirts and snuggle up in bed.

commandeer one of his shirts. She knew
that if Adam saw that lingerie she so purposefully selected for tonight, she
didn’t stand a chance of getting that t-shirt.
looked through his drawer, she located her favorite gray shirt. Perfect.
She quickly slid off her dress and into the cotton she had come to
associate with comfort for more reasons than the obvious. The smell of his cologne was faint, but it
was present. Taylor smiled. She loved
She sat on
the bed and waited for Adam to return.
Just as Taylor picked up her phone, Adam walked into the bedroom.
“You are so
beautiful.” He said as he eyed her in his shirt.
warmed at his gaze. He made her feel
just as sexy in his cotton shirt as she felt in her thousand-dollar lingerie.
watched as Adam took a deep breath and pulled his phone out of his pocket.
“Hey love, I
noticed your fans posted that picture.
It came out great.” He said as he cued up the picture on his
screen. He slowly approached the bed as
he studied her eyes. He handed her his
smiled in return at the thought of her fans.
She grabbed Adam’s phone and gasped in shock as she stared down at the
attempting to maintain his cool as much as humanly possible. He wasn’t sure how well he was masking his
nerves, but he hoped well enough to maintain the surprise.
He had been planning
this moment for over a month now. Yes,
it was soon but he couldn’t contain himself anymore. He thought about it practically every day
since he met Taylor. The fact was
simple: Out of all of the different scenarios that he could see defining his
future, there was not one that didn’t include her.
He knew she
was head over heels in love with him.
His only reservation was if this would be too soon to ask her to love
him forever. She was worth the risk and
he needed her to know that he wanted to begin writing their forever today. If she wanted to wait, it might break him,
but he understood. In fact, he had
already mentioned to her parents how taken he was by Taylor. He didn’t share specifics about his plan, but
he did ask for her Mother and Father’s approval when they last spoke. The look in their eyes was more than enough
to solidify that Adam was going to move forward with his plan.
last few weeks, Adam scoured Taylor’s social media. He knew exactly what he was looking for. He finally managed to select the perfect
individuals to help make his plan a reality.
He selected 5 of Taylor’s biggest fans and contacted them directly in
order to share his idea. Of course they
were slightly dramatic, and on more than one occasion he had to confirm that
there was still life on the other end of the phone. However, eventually, he was able to convince them
to sign the NDA and truly put his plan into action.
He knew that
there was no way that Taylor would pass up a chance to greet her fans. She was too devoted and he was counting on
So here they
She was sitting
in her bedroom wearing his shirt, looking like the most breathtakingly beautiful
girl in the world. He handed her his
phone and watched for her reaction as she viewed the photograph they had taken
earlier that night. There was Taylor,
front and center smiling so bright. She
was leaning slightly forward with her hands on her knees as her fans crowded in
behind her. There they stood, holding up
a message spelled out over multiple signs: Will
you Marry Me?
He could see
the shock on Taylor’s face. She
certainly was not expecting this. As she
appeared to comprehend was she was looking at, she slowly shifted her gaze to
Adam who was now down on bended knee in front of her. He held out another small Tiffany box in his
hand. Internally he debated if he should
open the box now or wait until the end of his speech.
swallowed hard as tears formed in Taylor’s eyes. He could see from the look in her face that
they were tears of joy and that encouraged him to speak.
life has never been the same since the day I first met you. I know this is soon, but I need you to know
that you mean everything to me. You are
my best friend. You are the one that I
want to call when anything happens throughout my day. You are the one that I want to experience
life with—good times and bad times. I
want to have a family with you. I want
to see your gorgeous face every day for the rest of my life. And honestly, I know it now—I don’t see the
point in waiting. Please, make me the
happiest man on this earth and say you will be my wife?”
the box and he could see the sparkle of the ring that he had spent countless
hours designing with the jeweler. It was
the perfect mixture of modern and classic.
It was the definition of Taylor in a ring. He knew she would love it.
As the tears
poured down her face, Taylor gasped for breath. She returned his adoring gaze
as she rapidly shook her head up and down while repeating the word “yes” over
A Cheshire smile
spread over Adam’s face. He stood up to
meet her embrace as she rose from the bed.
They stood there hugging in the silence.
Adam held her close until her hitched breathe returned to a normal
pattern. He pulled her away from his
body and they stood there at arms length smiling at one another.
