……………… Chad leant down and kissed the back of my neck as I pinned
up my hair.
"I'll go and get a drink and wait out by the pool for you" he
looked at me through the mirror.
"Okay I'll be 10 minutes" he walked out of the room. I pushed a
lotus blossom flower into my hair and got up and walked over to
the box that was sitting on the couch at the foot of the bed.
"Right I'll so kill you both if it's a nurses outfit" I smiled
thinking about Miranda and Heidi. I opened the box and pulled out
a pair of strappy sliver heels "Okay so not nurses shoes" I
murmured putting them to the side and picking up a note that was
on top of the tissue paper covering whatever I was supposed to
Okay girl this is it, if you're reading this then you must be
soaking up the sun.
We were asked to find something sexy and classy for you
(Xander and Jackson laughed when Classy was included) and Heidi
actually wanted to get the pink version but she was shot down as
we know you have a pepto phobia.
So rock this like we know that you can and blow Chad out of
We love you guys hug Chad for us and as soon as you can we
want you to call us
Miranda & Heidi
I put the note down with the shoes and pulled back the layers of
tissue paper and lifted the cream colored log strapless dress
from the box
"Wow" Miranda lived and breathed clothes this had to be more her
doing than any ones.
I let the soft material run through my fingers I put it on the
bed and slipped off my robe and put on the dress and walked over
to the full length mirror the material was gathered at my right
hip. It looked like some gown that would have been in an old 40's
black and white movie. I put on the shoes the dress still pooling
a little at my feet I opened my jewelry box and pulled out some
black pearl earrings and necklace and put them on. I took one
last look in the mirror and walked out of the room. Chad was
leaning on the rail on the deck where the table was set up for
"Well it wasn't the nurses outfit" He turned round.
"Damn" I watched him swallow hard as he looked at me "That's…
wow… well" He took my hand and turned me round "Damn"
"I think you said that once" I chuckled.
"You look beautiful" He shook his head as he looked me over again
"Way better than a nurses outfit" he smiled "come on" He lead me
to the table and pulled out the chair for me.
"Okay so that's a first" I laughed
"Yeah right" he walked round and sat down across the table from
"Did you have anything to do with this?" I pointed to the dress.
"Maybe" he shrugged "I might have asked for them to find
something for you for this vacation"
"How am I going to out do you?" I looked at him "I'm wracking my
brains trying to find something I can do?"
"You don't have to do anything you know that"
"Yeah it feels like all I'm doing is taking from you"
"Don't be silly I'm giving you're not asking for stuff" he sat
back "it's not a competition"
"Oh it is" I smirked "I would suggest a new car but you're
somewhat attached to your Lamborghini"
"Okay would you give up your new McLaren for a different car?"
"Exactly" He reached for my hand "Hey what's wrong with you?" I
looked at him and shook my head "Where's your ring?"
"I took if off when I went swimming and put it on the dresser" I
suddenly remembered that I hadn't seen it wheni was getting
ready. I got up from the table "Damn"
"Hey don't worry?" Chad caught my hand
"But what if I lost it" the panic was rising in me "What if
someone took it"
"Okay no one has been in the room since we went swimming" he
pulled me to him it's going to be in there"
"But nothing Chris you don't need it tonight"
"No you've pointed it out I'm missing it" I sighed putting my
hands against his chest.
"Put it on tomorrow. Come on the sunset from here is supposed to
be amazing" he moved with me to the rail as the sun began dipping
toward the ocean. His fingers trailed over the words on my back.
"Do you love me?" he murmured kissing my shoulder.
"Yes" I nodded
"You still want to live with me when the tour is done?"
"Yes" I looked back at him over my shoulder "didn't we have this
conversation… sort of in the pool?"
"Yes but if I'm going to do this" He reached into his pocket and
pulled out a box and brought it round in front of me as he kept
his head on my shoulder.
"So What?" I almost choked on the words
"Make it a little more than just us moving in" he said quietly
"Call me crazy, call me whatever, all I know is this isn't for
your right hand" he opened the box. I heard the gasp come from me
as I looked at the square cut diamond with diamonds edging the
band "you know I love watching your face when I play with the
other ring taking it off and putting it back on again" he brushed
his lips on my shoulder "But this one I want it to stay on when I
ask you if you'll consider marrying a certain Canadian" I opened
my mouth to say something but nothing happened nothing came out
so I closed it again. "Okay silence isn't good" he chuckled
nervously I looked at the sky as it streaked with deep purples
and deep oranges with the odd little star glinting. I nodded "Was
that a yes?"
"Yes" I croaked… was this happening right now this had to be a
dream. Chad moved round and pulled the ring from the box and
lifted my left hand
"We've done this for fun to mess with people" he swallowed "this
"I know" I nodded and watched as he slid the ring on to my
finger. I looked at him "I can't beat this" I smiled
"I'm not asking you to" He brushed his fingers down my cheek
before he kissed me my arms circling up round his neck as he held
me against him………………………..
