Prompt List 33. I missed something didn't I ? Please☺️
He rushes into the room, hair messy, cheeks pink from the cold air outside.
“I missed something, didn’t I?” he asks me as he sits next to me.
“You’re safe, Peeta. Mrs.Cartwright hasn’t arrived yet.”
“Good.” He reaches into tthe pocket of his jeans, where he takes a small box that he hands me. “Don’t fret. It’s not an engagement ring.” He says, waiting for me to pick the box.
My hand shakes as I grab it, open the lid, to find a long, thin silver chain. Lifting it, I can see a gray pearl hanging from it.
“I couldn’t resist when I saw it. It’s the color of your eyes.” Peeta tells me before leaning in. His lips are warm and taste like him. I could kiss him forever and a day.
A cough interrupts us, and soon, the bride’s mother is lecturing us about our duties as Best Man and Maid of Honor.
Once we’re out, in our favorite coffee shop, I can’t stop touching my pearl. Like everything coming from Peeta, it’s gorgeous, warm, and totally something I do not deserve.
I lean in, letting the pearl dance between us.
“Good luck finding the matching ring.”
He winks, before he leaves a kiss on the top of my nose.
“Who said I needed finding it?”
True to his words, when he proposes a few months later, the pearl on my ring is the exact same shade as the one on my necklace.
