In Your Dreams

It was your everyday fairy tale. Boy sees girl from across the room. They slyly glance at each other the whole night through until, finally, their eyes meet. It was as if fireworks were exploding in his heart and butterfly city just came alive in the pit of her stomach. As they walked towards each other, eyes locked in place, all motion and noise in the room ceased. Or so it seemed. They introduced themselves and exchanged numbers. Though too shy to admit it, they both knew it was love at first sight. These two grew more and more fond of each other as the summer passed by. Most thought it was just a summer romance, but they knew they felt more. They spent almost every day together and the days not spent together were spent on the telephone with the other one on the other end. They grew so in love that no one and nothing could tear them apart. The carnival came to town one night. They went, hand in hand, with camera in her other hand. The night was spectacular. The weather was splendid! “Nothing could make this better,” she thought. In one quick movement, he was down on one knee, reaching into his pocket. He was telling her how amazing and beautiful he found her. He was saying that he couldn’t imagine his life without her and never wanted to. Then the words came flowing out of his mouth as their tears poured from both their eyes, “Will you be my bride?” he asked. Without even thinking she responded, “Yes! I thought you’d never ask!” the next day, they set a date. October 28th. The plans seemed to fall into place and before she knew it she was walking down the aisle, her daddy by her side, towards the love of her life. Her white dress, which she rightfully wore, reflected her beauty in a way no one had seen and her smile could light up a city. Their eyes, yet again, locked on each other. As the fireworks exploded in his heart and butterfly city came alive in her stomach the first time they spoke, and every time after that, they felt it again; but fifty times more intense. With tears welling up all of their eyes, her daddy said, “Her mother and I do,” and took his seat. As they gently took each other’s hands, their vows were spoken before family and friends and the two became one. As they kissed for the first time, she quickly awoke with a smile spreading from ear to ear. The smile quickly faded as she realized that it was all just a dream. As she gently brushed her bangs from her eyes, something caught her attention. What was that beautiful diamond set on her finger? She rolled over to find her prince charming lying next to her, watching her adore her ring and then him. He softly whispered, “I love you,” and it was then that she realized her love story had not ended, but just begun.
