As the moonlight whipes over his beautiful face, I cannot help myself, he is so incredibly perfect, like a diamond that has not been polished or shined, like a bird who wants to fly but has a broken wing, he soars, amazing me, protecting me under his wing, I am his companion. WE have now officially been together 2 years! How amazing, exciting & Sweet!! It is Christmas eve & I am perfectly happy, healthy & fullfilled for all of my hearts desire, He looks at me, giving me a hint of a smile, I blush back a strong scarlet red, How long has it been since I have been his shadow, the class "nobody" or just plain miserable, well not now, He loves, cares, protects & treasures me! how much more special & sacred can one be after meeting the "love of your life?" As I help my mom in the kitchen, my sister, Sylvia grins at me, then says out of no where, "I wish that I could have a guy as perfect as yours, I mean, who could have imagined that Somone like him, could want to be with someone like you? You two are both so different, like, I get that you both are not popular, but he just seems so much more lively than you do Case! Do you get where I am coming from?" This makes me want to scream inside, how could she say such a mean thing? She is my sister, not my keeper, she does NOT have to monitor every move that I make, every guy that I am with,(Wich has only been one so far, but the most perfect one that I could have!) & every place that I go to! "What do you mean?" I attempt to say calmly, but giving it all away with my bright red face. "I am just mearly suggesting that maybe it is a bit strange that you are with him," she replies, trying to look innocent in front of mom. "Oh, Well in that case, at least I have a guy! I mean, you & your "Boyfriend" are both so different! Do you get where I am coming from?" I say with a sly smile, pleased with myself for standing up to her. You know, she has always been the "big Girl" that has loomed over me, keeping me from speaking my mind, from doing what I wanted to do,(Wich were not bad, may I add!) Finally she snaps back at me with the most heart-breaking thing that my poor ears have ever heard, "You disguist me! You don't deserve him, he just feels sorry for you! You never knew how to speak your mind, I always had to do THAT for you! In fact, the truth is, is that I don't think that you knew how to speak! I am so tired of having to be "Big girl" Case, When will you learn?" Tears well up into my eyes, "I'm sorry for disapointing you! I never knew that I was such a burden! but there is one thing that you are wrong about, & that is that, that boy in there loves me, & there is nothing that you can do to change that!" Then I ran up stairs, but as I walk down the hallway, I notice a photo of me & my family, everyone looks the same, same cute blonde hair, perfect teeth, preppy style, yup, they'r all there, ecxept for one little girl who is in the middle, she has darker, thicker hair & not the most "Perfect" teeth, she does not have a preppy style, nor does she have the most beautiful smile, She is me, when I was just 10, Wow! I think, It is the very first time that I have ever noticed this family photo hanging on our old, plain, baige wall. I wish that Lucy or Katrina were here, they would make me smile, Lucy always telling me, "Keep your chin held high Case, If they don't want to hang out with you, then they need to be sent to a phsyco ward, with therapy & everything!" I smile through my tears, remembering all of the wonderful times that we have had together, Ah! How I miss them both right now! As I just stand there, staring at the wall, my mom comes up, "Honey, Are you alright?" "Yeah, thanks mom, I just needed a moment, wow! I never noticed how much of an "Odd-ball" I was!" "Yeah, You were different alright, but in a good way, Sylvia Is going through a tough time right now, her boyfriend left her & so she had nowhere to go for Christmas, so I invited her to stay here, try to understand, She has never known a love like you know with your Boyfriend, She is jelous, she wants what you have, & to make the pain even greater, You were always the younger, more "Annoying sister," Although I don't think so, you have to understand, please, do it for the good of all of us, K?" She looks kind of desperate, Worried & tired, so I say," Yeah, okay mom, I know, I understand, Can I finish helping you make dinner?" "Yeah, that would be great, thanks, & how about making it right with your sister, Okay?" "Okay Mom, I will go down in a minute," I am feeling kind of weak, so I just want to get this over with. "Hey everyone!" I say with a new & improved attitude, "Hi, come back in & sit with us," they all say at defferent timings! "K, Hey Sis, I, er-am sorry for snapping back like that, I understand that this Christmas is hard for you." I say feeling a weight lifted off of my chest, "Its okay, I must apoligize too though! I don't know what happened, I am just sensitive about those things, I guess." She looks at me, but not with the burdened, tired eyes that I ussually see, she looks, happy, WOW! This is truely a "Once in a life-time" moments!" We both stare at each other face to face for a minute, Then break down laughing! Later I see him sitting down on a couch, I go over to him & say, "Hey, whats up, I haven't seen you all evening!" "Yeah, I have been outside getting your surprise ready, Wann'a go check it out?" He says with a smile, revealing his perfectly white pearl teeth. "Yeah, Lets go!" As we walk outside, It is pitch black out, The stars guarding the sky, the pond in the Backyard reflecting our faces off of it, It is truely perfect, beautiful, in fact, if this was the gift, I would be perfectly happy & content! "Its around here," He says, As we turn a corner behind the shed I see a bright rae of light, almost blinding me from not adjusting my eyes. Then I start to adjust & can see the shape, oh my Gosh! It is a velvet lined, leather sleigh! With 2 big horses atatched to the front! It is simply breath-taking, A sight to behold, I wish that I could freeze this moment in time for all to see, feel & experiance! "Well, do you like it?" he ask's me, looking puzzled, worried & concerned, "I, I love it, thank you!" I say, trying not to burst into tears at that very second, Joy, love, sorrow, these are just some of the emotions that I am experiancing right now! "are you okay," he ask's me, "You look upset," "Yes, I am more than okay! I am brilliantly happy!" I say, just about ready to burst if I do not get onto it right this very moment! "Can we ride on it?" I ask, sounding like a tiny child in a candy shop! "Well, Yeah, that is why I brought it out here, for you to ride it! get on, we can go right now!" As I jump on, he holds my hand, His, warm, soft & perfect for my hand to fit into! "K, You ready to go?" He ask's, "Yes!" I shout! "Lets go!" As I ride along, I become tired, yet awake, & I nuzzle my head into the blanket covering us, he puts his arm around me, I feel a surge of love for the boy, he kisses my on my forehead, Then, unaware of it, he reaches into his coat pocket, it catches my eye, A beautiful, white gold diomond ring. He stops the sleigh, lifts up my chin with his soft, warm, perfect hand & says, "Casey Abbigail Smith, Will you marry me?" I am suddonly awake, Thoughts flying through my head, Where are we going to live, is this really the right decision? I need to finish college first! What will my parents think? "Casey, Are you still with me?" "Yes, yes, I am still with you, Well, how do we know if my parents-your parents are okay with it?" I have already asked your parents, & my parents permission, They approve, there is nothing to worry about, So what do you think?" He ask's, looking nervous, a bead of sweat running down his cheek, or maybe it is a tear, But it is flowing, then another one, following it's leader. "Let me think a minute," I say, "Okay, take your time," I finally look him straight in the eyes, his him, then I answer with my decision. "YES!"
