perfect love

His pledge to her

I will kill the spiders. I will share my chips with you, even if you said you didn’t want any or you’ve already eaten yours. I will eat the mushroom off the supreme pizza. I will try my hardest not to get frustrated when you talk while we’re watching a movie. I will be the big spoon. I will let you beat me at wrestling sometimes, but not always. I will send you random texts and leave you silly gifts that only you will understand. Not always, not on schedule, not because I have to but because I want to. I will notice when you get a haircut or wear a new dress. I will check your tyre pressure and take your car in for its service. I will hold your hand and kiss your cheek. I will love you. I will love you. I will love you.

Her pledge to him

I will make you breakfast on Sunday morning. I won’t nag you when you forget to hang the washing out. I will remind you when it’s your sisters birthday. I will iron your shirt but only if you ask me nicely. I will come Christmas shopping with you and help you pick a present for your mum- who deserves the world. I will try not to talk when we’re watching your favourite movie. I will not get mad if you don’t notice that I got a haircut. I will let you put your head on my thigh and I will run my fingers through your hair when you’re tired. I will look after you when you are sick. I will always be by your side. I will love you. I will love you. I will love you.

“I don’t know much about relationships. I don’t know anything about love. All I want, like, in this whole world, is to just keep talking to you. I wanna know how your day was, where you wanna eat, and I wanna argue with you. And I wanna hear all your theories, even the ones that are just completely, you know, wrong. And I know it’s not that simple. I just believe that if you are really willing to continue having this conversation with me, then we can figure the rest out.”

The first time.
