Jordie Benn || Made Up

The door slams.

He’s walking away. How could I let him walk away?! Jordie and I have been together for two years and I still haven’t met his parents. Am I not good enough? He can’t just walk away! If anyone deserves to be mad it’s myself not him. I race through the apartment building to the garage where he’s about to get into his car.

“Now wait a second! We are going to talk about this!” I yell to him.

“Ok fine! Let’s talk!” He says and closes his car door.

“We’ve been together for two years and you still don’t want me to meet your parents! Why?!” I yell getting frustrated.

“I told you Y/N! I’m not ready for that! Just drop it!” He goes to turn away but I grab his arm.

“No! I’m not just going to drop it! Am I not good enough?!” I scream with tears forming in my eyes.

“That’s not it and you know it!” He sighs and shakes off my hand.

“I’m sorry if I’m not some star that your parents want you to date but I am a good person.”

“I have to go.” He says while looking at his phone.

“O-ok…” I choke out. I bolt back to my apartment and collapse against the door. Hot tears fall rapidly and my breathing has sped up. Who on his phone is more important? Is he cheating on me? Is that why I can’t meet his family? What if I’m just his girl on the side…

These thoughts swirl in my head until I reach over and grab my phone. I dial Jamie’s number with shaking hands.

“Y/N? What’s up?” He asks.

“J-Jamie…” I say and start sobbing again.

“Y/N? Y/N, what’s wrong? What did my idiot brother do now?” He asks frantically.

“I-is he cheating on me?” I ask slowly.

“What?! Jordie? No way!” He says quickly. “Why would think that?”

“Well, we’ve been together for two years and I still haven’t met your parents. Am I not good enough for him Jamie?”

“Oh Y/N that’s not it at all! In fact the other day he was looking at-umm nothing never mind.” He says. “Call him. Trust me.”

“Thanks Jamie.” I say relieved.

“No problemo! Now, are you gonna be ok?”

“Yeah, I’m good now.” We say goodbye and not even two minutes later my phone rings. Jordie’s name lights up on the screen and I reluctantly answer.

“Baby girl why did you call my brother crying instead of me?” He asks immediately.

“Well hello to you too.”

“Y/N, answer the question.”

“You were the cause of my tears so I didn’t think it would be much help if I called you.” I admitted.

“What? Babe, I’m so sorry please don’t cry. Also, please open the door.” I stand up and open my door, there stands Jordie who has worry in his eyes.

“What are you doing here?” I ask confused.

“Jamie called me and told me that you were upset so I got here as soon as I could.” He says and steps inside. “This was supposed to be special and I planned it all out but Jamie said that you didn’t think you were good enough for me.” He says and then get down on his knee. “So, Y/N, the most gorgeous girl in the whole world and the most precious thing in my life. Will you do me the honor of becoming my wife and spending forever and ever with a complete idiot who loves you more than all of the grains of sand on this Earth?”

“Oh my goodness yes!” I say as new tears roll down my face, but this time they’re joyful. He slides a stunning (and extremely sparkly) ring onto my finger.

“But what about your phone when we were arguing? Why did you have to leave? A-and why can’t I meet your parents?” I ask him.

“Oh that? There was another man who wanted to buy this ring and the shop owner told me because he knew it was my favorite so I wanted to get it before anyone else could. And about my parents, I wanted to make sure that you were mine before you met them because well they can come on a little strong sometimes. They absolutely love company…” He chuckles nervously.

“I’ll always be yours.” I stand on my tip toes and peck his lips. He picks me up bridal style and spins me around. Giggling I kiss him again but this time it lasts much longer.

I can’t wait to marry this man.

Live at the Messe des Morts 6.5 festival in Montreal

lebeaucorbeau  asked:

So in juin I'm going to be in Montreal as part of a two week program to Quebec for credit through my university. There's going to be a lot of stuff planned but I'm sure we'll get some free time to do some stuff on our own. Is there anything you'd highly recommend for someone's first time in Montreal?

oh that’s awesome!! 

i’ve actually live in montreal for only a year and i’ve been working a lot and on the night shift for most of it so i haven’t checked out the city a lot yet, but that being said i was familiar with the city before coming living here so i can still recommend some stuff hehe 

old montreal is a nice place to take a walk and enjoy the architecture. it’s very cute and feel very european. if you have time to go to quebec city, i find the old quebec even better! downtown at night is nice too, near the peel/mcgill/place-des-arts subway stations. the mont-royal avenue is quite nice too, there are lots of local shops and foods if you’re interested.

there are also a lot of museums (my favorites are the museum of fine arts, the biodôme, the planetarium and the botanical garden) and lots of festivals all year long. the ones i know of for july: les francofolies for french canadian music, the beer festival (if you’re a fan of beer, montreal has a lot of craft beers), and the jazz festival but it starts at the end of june. if you’re here on the 24th, it’s the national holiday in quebec and there are always big celebrations. this summer is also montreal’s 375th birthday so there will be special stuff for that too i’m sure. a walk in the gay village is pretty nice too with the pink/rainbow balls in the sky! if you can go up the mont-royal you can get a nice view of the city too, it’s pretty nice. it’s a “mountain” but mostly it’s just a big hill lol

montreal has also so much food, you will love it! be sure to taste real poutine québécoise too, it’s a must! :D if you like shopping, there are lots of shops and places. montreal even has the largest underground city in the world, including many, many shops (and public transport).

i hope you have lots of fun here and don’t hesitate to ask more if you want! if any of my followers have other recommendations, go ahead!

Hey so uh i don’t think i ever posted this? It’s old but I’m still really proud of it, these are my kids Clover (left) and Carmen (right) and they have a v big backstory that I’m still working on

I spent two absolutely incredible days in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. We saw the old city, which dates back to the 1600s, and two stunning 19th century churches, Basilica Notre Dame (top) and Cathedrale Marie-Reine-du-Monde.

We also hit up the Musee des Beaux Artes, where they have a whole floor of 17th-18th century art, including a collection of items that belonged to Napoleon; it was the first time I have ever seen Greuze and Fragonard pieces in person (and also there were Gainsboroughs, Romneys, a Jacques-Louis David, among others).
