One Day You'll Be Mine(61)

By: Alana Hart & Lauren Lashley

“Not a day goes by that I don’t thank God I met you. I can’t take away the memories your husband gave you – and I’d never want to replace those wonderful times you both shared. But I know that’s the past, and you’re starting the next chapter of your life. I just want to know if you’re willing to spend it with me.”

He extracted a red velvet jewelry box from his pocket, and opened the case. Inside lay the most gorgeous 2-carat teardrop diamond ring I’d ever seen. It sparkled and glimmered, sending brilliance in every direction.

Trembling, I looked at him, then the ring. “Baby… this is so sudden.”

“Yes, baby.” He agreed. “It is. But I know you’re the one for me, and I don’t want to spend another moment without letting you know my love is real. I don’t want you in my life, Natalia. I need you here. Will you be mine forever? I promise we won’t rush to the altar. We’ll take it just one day at a time – until you’re ready to say ‘I do.’”

Tears rolled down my cheeks as I nodded. He slid the ring on, kissed my hand again, and stood up.

I grinned and leaned in, balancing myself on one high-heeled leg. The other was propped up in the air, a sign of delight as my lips pressed against his and our hearts exploded.
