"Life is too short to count the days,
Live your life before it ends."

•Blake's POV•

4 months later

I felt a smile forming on my face as I stare at Alexis.

She giggled as she played with a puppy that ran up to her while we were both on our picnic date. The puppy was adorable and all but it was stealing her attention from me.

It licked her face causing her to scrunch her face up. I held back a laugh as I stare at her facial expression.

Ever since Cassidy was killed by my father she has been more happy and energetic. I knew that she was happy that the person who killed her parents was finally dead. She no longer had to worry about the person who killed her parents still alive and breathing.

The past 4 months went by fast. Both Alexis and I grew closer and I couldn't be anymore happier. I learned more about her and she learned more about me.

Her birthday was just around the corner and I was excited, yet nervous at the same time.

She has changed since we were little. She was more independent and confident in herself. She spoke at what was in her mind and gave no shit about what others would say. She stole my heart from day one.

And soon she will steal my last name.


I stare at her left hand and imagine what it would look like with a ring on it.

Yes, I am planning on proposing to her on her birthday. Even if we are young I wasn't planning for us to get married until we are 21. Then why proposed now?

I wanted her to become my fiancée now. I want others to see that she was happily taken and besides we knew each other since day 01. We were practically soulmates.

But if Alexis refused I will propose again in the future. And if she says no again I will keep proposing to her until she says, "yes, now give me the damn ring."

I was snap out of my thoughts when I heard her laughter. I stare at her in awe. How was I so lucky?

I always thought I was always going to be single forever. But then she showed up.

She showed me the light and opened my heart. She changed me in a way I didn't even know existed. Without her, I honestly don't know what I would do. Maybe dig a hole and bury me.

She continues to play with the puppy until its owner came and took it back.

"Sorry, if she bothered you." The owner apologized.

Alexis smile while brushing a strand of hair behind her ear.

"It's fine. She's adorable."

They talked for a while before Alexis gave me her attention. I love having her attention, especially when I could stare into her beautiful eyes.

"So, what's with this unexpected picnic date?" She asked.

I choked on the piece of bread I was eating as I stare at her. She raised an eyebrow as I slowly swallow. I nervously thought about my answer.

Only this girl makes me feel nervous and weak.

But I'm not scared to show it.

"Well, I got a surprise."

"Don't you always do?" She joked.

I nervously chuckled.

"Well, I bought two tickets to Greece, but I guess you don-"

"I WANT IT!" She screamed, causing people around us to turn their heads at us.

I chuckled at her reaction.

"Consider this as a birthday present."

She made an O shape with her mouth.

"I forgot about my birthday," she whispered.

I snorted. Of course, she did.

She gave me a sheepish smile before she said, "So, when are we leaving?"

"We are leaving 4 days before your birthday. So in two days." I confirmed.

She squeaks in joy. She got up and ran over to me, tackling me down into a hug.

"Thank you, thank you!!"

She kissed my cheek, thinking that was enough but for me, I wanted more. Just when she was about to pull away I grabbed the back of her neck and pressed my lips against hers.

She stiffens at first before she moved her lips against mine. I let out a small groan when I taste chocolate in her mouth. Just when I was about to deepen the kiss she pulled away panting.

Her rosy cheeks redden as she stares at the grass. I lick my lips still feeling the tingles from our kiss.

"W-we should go home and pack, " she spoke still looking at the grass.

I nodded not wanting to further embarrass her. I stood up and grabbed her in my arms. She let out a small scream when I carry her bridal style.

"What are you doing!?" She asked while she pounds her little fist against my chest.

I let out a throaty chuckled as I continued walking us to the car. She stopped and buried her red blushing face against my chest.

"You big elephant," she mumbled.

I shook my head in amusement. I opened the car door and gently put her down.

"What about our food and stuff?" She asked.

"Someone is already coming and getting it, " I reassure her.

She nodded her head as she let out a small yawn.

"Go to sleep, gattina. I'll wake you up when we get home, " no I won't. I wouldn't dare wake you up from your peaceful sleep.

She nodded her head while she snuggled into the seat. I smiled as I lean closer to her and kiss her forehead. My lips stay there for a while before I pulled away.

"I love you," I whispered.
