“Close your eyes, I have a surprise for you!!”
In 10 years, he had never given her a gift because he believed love is not materialistic, it just is. He didn’t believe in surprises either, only because he never liked them himself. Everything had to be planned out, analytical and therefore never spontaneous. She knew how his mind worked, a bit too well.
So a surprise, whatever it may be, felt like she had been waiting for this for way too long.
Palms facing the sky, mind racing with possibilities and praying that it wasn’t that one thing.
A salty breeze ruffled her hair and sent a shiver down her spine.
“Open”, he said – after what seemed like an eterntity
House keys dangling in his hands, she smiled and hugged him tight,
Living in sin, it is!!
He knew her far too well and decided to keep the ring in his pocket, for another 10.
