A Year or Two

The Big Night

I fiddled with the small red velvet box in my jacket pocket as I walked inside and started setting up. Before long the smoothie was sitting in a bucket of ice and the couch was set up with blankets on each side. The televison was set up with a DVD player along side it. The movies were; Girly Cow Season 1-5 on DVD, Peppermint Winter (the first movie we ever saw together) and The Help. I remembered how hilarious Sam thought the pie in that movie what. I had to hold her sides just so she wouldn't fall off of the couch.

My cellphone started ringing the tune was; Call me by Kari Kimmel. It was Sam.

"Hello, Sammanther," I said, smiling.

"Where are you?" She asked desperately.

"I'm.. I'll be home soon with a surprise. Why? What's wrong?" I asked, worried.

"I- I'll tell you when you get home." I frowned.

"Okay. I love you."

"Love you too," she said.


I hung up the phone. That was odd. I hope she's alright. Realisation hit me. I forgot to come make breakfest for her! That must be it! Oh, well. I'll be sure to make her some tomorrrow.

Well, it looked like everything was set up. The smoothie was in ice, the pie was in the fridge, the couch was set up, and Peppermint Winter was in the DVD player.

I got into the car and drove to the apartment.

I unlocked the door and walked in. "Sammy?"

"Yeah?" She asked from the couch and looked up at me.

"I'm sorry, I forgot about breakfest.

She chuckled. "It's fine."

She bit her lip eagerly. "The suprise?" She smiled.

"Yep," I said, excited and nervous at the same time.

"Here," I said handing her a scarf from the counter. She looked at me like I was crazy.

"Cover your eyes with it," I laughed.

"Oh.. kay," she said, confused.

"Oh. By the way, I ordered Pini's on take out," She said, rubbing her belly.

I laughed, "great."

She walked over to the fridge and took out a box. "I was waiting for you."

"Even greater," I smiled and took the box.

"Let's go," I said and took her hand after she had the blindfold on.

I lead her to the car slowely and helped her in.

"Wait. Am I being kidnapped?" She joked.

I chuckled. "Mhm."

Once we got to the apartment I helped her out.

"Steady, now." I said as she tried to speed up.

"Opps. Sorry."

I laughed. "It's fine."

I lead her into the apartment and put on the radio.

"Tell me why do you fall? So far that you cant contain it? Tell me why cant you see that your searching all the wrong places."
