You paced around your room nervously, your heels clicking against the floor with each step you took. The butterflies in your stomach refused to subside, and you stopped in front of the full length mirror in the room you were getting ready in. You weren’t particularly excited about this party; you were honestly quite afraid you would mess it up for everyone somehow.
You took a deep breath and exited your room, meeting Mercy and Pharah in the hallway before the ballroom. Your (f/c) dress swished as you walked, your hair done neatly. “Wow, y/n! You look amazing!” Fareeha complimented you, looking you up and down in appreciation.
“I love your makeup! It’s so pretty!” Angela chimed in, beaming at you in happiness.
“Thanks.” You responded with a shy smile, your gloved hands clenching and unclenching with nerves.
The three of you walked into the ballroom. Your eyes sweeped across the crowd of people, falling on the familiar face of Jack. You smiled a little, unable to see the widening of his eyes, the intake of breath as he layed his eyes on you, and the way his heart skipped a beat as he regarded you.
You made your way over to him, finding his presence comforting. “Hey Jack.” You said, smiling up at him.
“Big turn out tonight, huh?” You gazed at the crowd. “You must be pretty nervous.”
“Not really.” You glanced up at him in surprise. Seeing your surprised look, he continued. “With you by my side, I could take on the world.”
You let out a beautiful laugh, the sound causing the soldier to blush ever so slightly. “What, you’re going to fight all these people?” You covered your mouth as you laughed, tears threatening to spill and ruin your makeup.
Jack smiled too, finding your laugh and smile to be infectious. “I might.”
“You’re a crazy man, Jack.” You giggled, glancing up at him. You found him to be be extremely handsome in his deep black tuxedo, bright blue eyes looking down at you.
“Do you want to dance with me, y/n?” Jack asked softly, offering his hand to you.
You nodded and took his hand as he sweeped you into an elegant slow dance. You two danced in silence for a while before he finally spoke. “You look incredible, y/n.”
You felt your cheeks heat up slightly. “Thank you. So do you. Very dashing.”
The way he said your name made the butterflies in your stomach do front flips.
“Y/n, I want to tell you something.” He gently tilted your chin up so your eyes were locked with his. “I.. I think you’re beautiful. The moment you stepped through those doors, I knew.. I knew I wanted you to be mine until the day that I die.”
You stared at him in shock.
“Will you be mine, y/n?”
You didn’t know how to respond. You had never expected Jack to share the affection you held in your heart. You leaned up and covered his eyes with your silky white gloved hand, and gently pressed your lips to his. He returned the kiss as his arms wrapped around your waist.
“Of course, Jack. It’s about time you asked!”
