Imagine Sonny proposing to you
Basically a part two to this imagine
Imagine Sonny proposing to you
“Sonny,” you hissed as you hurried behind him, holding tightly onto his hand.
“We’re almost their, Y/N. Just a little more walking. It’s not too bad.” he reasoned.
“That’s easy for you to say. You aren’t wearing 5 inch heels and a dress that keeps getting caught. You could have said we were coming here after dinner. I would have packed hiking gear.” you shot back.
“Just a little further.” he reassured speeding up slightly and dragging you along gently.
Then suddenly you stumbled forward crashing into Sonny’s back. He was quick enough to steady you.
“Are you okay?” he asked concerned.
“Just peachy, can’t you tell? Sonny, can we please go back to the car?” you pleaded looking down at yourself to inspect the damage you’d done. Looking down you saw that your heel had broken off, “Damn my shoe.”
“When you see it it will be worth it and I can help with that.” he reassured with a smile.
Then suddenly he grabbed you and swooped you up into his arms. You put your arms around his neck and leaning you head on his shoulder.
“Is that better?” he asked looking down at you.
“Much.” you nodded kissing his cheek, “I still don’t understand why we’re going to the park at midnight. Can’t we come back during daylight?”
Yours and Sonny’s anniversary had been a few days ago. Unfortunately, while Sonny had the day off you had to work. He had said it was okay but you could tell he was disappointed. So on that day you said you’d drive to Staten Island during your lunch and you could eat together. He organised this picnic for you both at Carisi Point. Which is what you had dubbed this little alcove on the local park embankment. Sonny had grown up in that park, they took family picture and you recently learned it’s where Sonny’s Mom had told his Dad that she was pregnant with Sonny’s older sister. It was definitely part of the Carisi family history.
You had a lot of dates their too. Sometimes it was just a stroll down the embankment and sometimes it was Picnics. He’d taken you their when he had asked you to move in with him. It was also where you realised that you liked Sonny. You’d driven him their when his car had broken down and he was going to the park to take pictures of his sister and his niece. He ended up taking pictures of you as well, that day.
Anyway, on your anniversary you had tried to make the picnic he had organised. You got their late due to tariff which meant you could only stay for a short time. Surprisingly, his whole family were their too. Which confused you because it was a Thursday in the middle of the day and Carisi family dinner was that night. When you their you could only stay for ten minutes. You greeted everyone, shoved some food in your mouth, apologised and then left. He asked if you could stay for a few minutes and you were about to give in when your phone rang and dragged you away.
You didn’t see Sonny for the rest of the day. When you finally got home, it was technically the next day and Sonny had already gone to bed. The next morning you apologised profusely and said on Saturday you could have a do over anniversary and they could do anything he wanted. Let’s just say he liked the idea. A lot.
On Saturday, despite it being his day, you’d woken up early and surprised him with Breakfast. You hadn’t made it, you had bought from the place around the corner from your apartment. You’d technically been banned from the kitchen. You’re not supposed to put plastic bowls on the stove whilst lit, who knew?
After he ate, he told you to get ready but didn’t tell you where you were going. It was surprise which you didn’t usually like but you trusted him. He took all the backroads so you didn’t know where you were going. You ended up at the arcade, Sonny went to as a kid. You’d loved arcades your entire life but could never go because your mother didn’t approve. Sonny had taken you to your first one on one of your dates at the start of your relationship.
You guys spent most of the day their. Having a competition as to who could win the most prizes for the other. You ate burgers and fries and played on the dance machines until you fell over laughing at each other. Together you’d won an entourage of stuffed friends which you mostly gave away to the kids but you guys kept the biggest toy which Sonny had won. It was almost as big as you were.
It was on the best days of your life and when you went home you thought that was the end of it. You went to flop onto the couch when Sonny told you to put on your fanciest dress because you were going out to dinner. Which you had half-heartedly protested but you were secretly excited.
During dinner you noticed that Sonny was a bit off. It was great, amazing even but he seemed nervous. You were curious as to what was up but didn’t make too much of it. Dinner just reminded you why you loved Sonny. He knew everything about you. He had moved the candle from the middle of the table because he knew you’d lean over ad try his. He explicitly told the waitstaff that it wasn’t his birthday because he you knew you’d try to tell them he was. And he made sure they put extra extra cheese on the garlic bread.
Also it didn’t hurt that you got to spend three hours looking at the person you loved the most. Just talking. You thought about how you wouldn’t change this for the world. The word ‘love’ was too limited to describe how you felt about him. Your Dad, being a scientist, had always told you to find your favourite piece of stardust and you had found yours.
After dinner you had assumed once again that this was the end of the night especially considering it was midnight by that time. But once again Sonny had other plans. He told you he wanted to show you something at the park. You protested saying you’d already seen Carisi point millions of times over the past four years not even the three you’d been together. To which he responded not like this.
And that brings you back to now.
You and Sonny stumbling through the park into your formal wear so he could show something secret.
“Because, you can only see it at night.” he informed allusively still walking.
“If I’m right about where we’re going. I’ve seen it many time and always during daylight hours.” you assumed.
“Not like this,you haven’t.” he whispered into your ear.
After a few more minutes of walking and protests you arrived at Carisi point. He eased you down onto the embankment.
‘So what’s the surprise?” you asked standing lopsided in-front of him.
Without saying a word, he grabbed your shoulders, span you round and pulled you close. Instinctively, you grabbed his arm. Then you finally saw it. Carisi point was illuminated by an overhead floodlight but the sea? Illuminated by the nearby Brooklyn. Bright lights against a pitch black sky. A visible beauty that you could only see by the low glow of the the floodlight.
“Wow.” you breathed marvelling at it.
“See.” he whispered before picking you up again.
He carried you to the wall that skirted the river. He eased you down so you could sit on it. He faced you towards the water so you legs could dangle off the edge. He sat bedside you, facing the other way.
“So was the broken heel worth it?” he chuckled as he watched you stare out to sea.
“Definitely, why didn’t you show me this before?” you questioned.
“I was waiting for a special day.” he responded tucking a star hair behind year.
“Well it’s our redo third year anniversary.” he pointed out.
“Yeah, but you could have done this on our first or second.” you said.
“Today’s special.” he commented still looking at you.
You nodded your head before looking out again. A comfortable silence fell over you both.
“You remember when I first you brought you here?” he asked suddenly.
“Hmm, your car broke down right before you had to meet your sister so you could take pictures of her and your niece and you needed me to drive you here.” you remembered.
“Right and do you remember what I said?” he continued to ask.
“Everything Carisi happens here, got grounded for a month and you had your first kiss here, not much else though. I do however remember is you taking pictures of me. Which I never saw by the way.” you chuckled as you poked his side.
“Oh you mean these.” he smirked producing a small stack of pictures from the inside his suit jacket.
“Oh my god,” you squealed taking them out of his hands.
Flicking through, you saw the blurry ones with your annoyed face shinning through and then you saw the ones that you took together. You saw that unlike you Sonny didn’t look at the camera he was too busy looking at you.
“Sonny, why don’t you ever look into the camera lens like a normal person?” you asked giggling as you still flipped through.
“Why would I look into the camera lens when I can look at you?” he flirted looking at you..
You raised an eyebrow and then kissed him.
“You’re one smooth talker.” you chuckled handing him back the photos.
“I try. Ah, YN. I wish I could spend every moment I have left with you.” he whispered leaning into you.
“But you work with me, live with me, your in a relationship with me. You’re practically always with me.” you pointed out.
“I know but it still isn’t enough. Do you want to spend the rest of your days with me?he asked his voice serious.
“Of course. Their isn’t anyone else I’d rather be with. Who else is stupid enough to stick around this mess.” you reassured turning and putting your hand on face.
“You sure?” he asked leaning into your hand.
“I’ve never been so sure of anything in my life.” you smiled.
“Well alright then,” he said easing your hand off your face and kissing it.
He pulled it gently so you had turn your body round. So now your feet were dangling inches off the embankment instead of water. You were confused as he slipped himself off the wall and was on the floor. Still holding your hand he positioned himself.
On one knee.
“Sonny…” you breathed only to stop when he put his finger to his lips.
“When we first met you four years ago. I thought I knew what being in love was like. I thought I had been in love but then you came around. With that beautiful face and proved me wrong, like always. You showed me what love is. What love really is. My whole life I watched my parents who I know are god made soulmates and knew I wanted the same for myself but I didn’t fully understand what they had until I met you. It’s wanting to spend the rest of your life with someone. It’s not wanting to spend a second away from someone. It’s being so in love that you’re not the most important person in the world anymore. It’s someone else. And for me it’s you. I love everything about you. Your sarcastic comments, your complaints, your smirks, everything. I know you’ve had a hard life. You spent it all putting other people first. You’re the strongest woman I know. I want to show you what it feels like to be number one because you’ll always be my number one. I know you don’t believe in God but I believe he brought us together. To save each other. Before we started dating you always talked about finding your favourite piece of stardust and I can only pray that you’ve found that in me as much I’ve found it in you. So Y/N Y/M/N Y/L/N, will you make me the luckiest and happiest man on the planet and marry me?” he asked producing the ring from his looking right into your eyes as if they held the entire world.
“Yes,” you answered, “A billion katriilon times yes.”
He shakily slipped the ring on your equally as shaky hand. It was small and blue. The same colour of his eyes. You knew it was his grandmothers as he had shown it to you before you had started dating.
Then he swept you up once again. Lifting you up so you were technically above him so you had to lean down to kiss him. He then lowered you down and you wrapped your legs around his waist.
“I knew you were hiding something from me.” you smiled as you gently hit his chest.
“But it worth hiding, right?” you beamed back at you.
“Oh yeah.” you agreed before kissing him again, “We need to call and tell everyone.”
‘Not right now we aren’t. It’s the middle of the night.” he protested as you kissed every inch of his face.
“You’re right and anyway I think we’re going to busy for the rest of the night.” you winked.
He smiled at you before while still carrying you running back to the car. Ready to start the rest of your lives.
