I got another prompt from @stellina2a . Thank you sweetie 😘
#67 “I think I’ve been holding myself back from falling in love with you all over again.” I want that sentence to come from Sheldon’s mouth. Maybe writing it in his vows.
Sheldon couldn’t stop staring at his bride. She was absolutely stunning in her Victorian-style floor-length white dress, her hair curled in waves under the matching veil, and her tiara perched on top. He had never seen her this radiant. Their friends had painstakenly decorated the venue so they could have the perfect wedding, but that faded into the background. All he saw was his Amy.
The clearing of the minister’s throat shook him out of his trance. “I believe the two of you have written your own vows?”
“We have,” Sheldon agreed. He took her hands in his and gazed into her eyes. “Amy, before I met you, I had no desire to share my life with another person. Science and TV shows were all I needed. Then eight years ago, you came into my life, and over time, I developed feelings for you. I tried denying them, keeping you at arm’s length, but my plan didn’t work. Instead of squelching them, those feelings became stronger each day.”
He paused as she gave his hands a squeeze, and tears pricked her eyes. “I fell in love with you years before I admitted it to you or even to myself. How could I not have? You are my intellectual equal, my rock. Your kindness, patience, and love keep me grounded and have made me a better man.”
“Oh, Sheldon,” Amy sniffled.
“When we broke up, I was devastated. I vowed to myself that I was done with romantic relationships. When you told me you were ready to be my girlfriend again, I pushed my lingering feelings aside. I couldn’t allow myself to get hurt again. I tried to forget the feel of your hands in mine, the touch of your lips, but you are like the north pole to my south pole. Like a magnet, I was drawn to you.
He looked down at the ground. "But even though I’ve gotten much better at showing you how much you mean to me, I think I’ve been holding myself back from falling in love with you all over again, that is until today.” He lifted his eyes to her once more. “Amy, I’m in this for the long haul. No matter what obstacles life throws at us, I will never stop loving you."
The tears threatening to fall from her eyes slid down her cheeks. "I will never stop loving you either,” she choked out.
He pulled her against his chest and held her tight. “I will never let you go,” he murmured in her ear.
“You don’t need to worry. I’m yours forever.”
