Before Summer began, Shawn had surprised you with Season Passes to Universal Studios Hollywood, a place of wonder and opportunities -- or was that Disneyland?
The whole ride to the park, Shawn was acting weird. You had thought it was his anxiety kicking in again, so he was being silent to cope with it. However, he had sung a little bit of Frozen and High School Musical songs with you, but otherwise, he was quite off today. He wasn't as chatty or goofy with you for the short ride.
When at the gate, he was quite jittery. He wipes his sweaty palms on his black, skinny jeans and then ran them through his brown, curly locks.
You knew it wasn't because he was afraid to be spotted by fans since he basically lives to meet them. It wasn't because he was afraid of getting on the rides; he had ridden every ride at the amusement park several times this Summer since it had been the eleventh time you've gone - not counting this time since you haven't really stepped into the park yet. It surely wasn't because of you, right?
You had been with each other for two years, now, so it couldn't have been.
"Shawn, Love, are you okay," you ask quietly to try to not draw attention.
Shawn grabs your hand, giving it a slight squeeze, and says, "I'm fine. Just got a slight headache." He kisses your forehead and trails his hand down the side of your face. His eyes never left yours until your attention was drawn away as you were next in line at the entrance.
You nod and finally get into the park after scanning your ticket and thumbprint at the gate.
You wait for Shawn as he thanks the gate attendant. You smile as you grab Shawn's hand to drag him to Hogsmeade towards the back of the park with your Sirius Black wand and map in your other hand.
You finally get there after constantly stopping as fans ask Shawn for a picture and hug. You didn't mind; it's what you signed up for when you agreed to go on that first date with him. After all, you were one of them. You still are a huge supporter of Shawn's!
As Shawn's gaze met yours after posing for a picture with a fan, your stomach did a three-sixty inside. Those butterflies -- no fire-breathing dragons roaring inside of you.
For the first time this trip, he seems calm. "Ready?"
You smile. "Of course. Are you?"
Shawn rolls his eyes and leads you in. He was a little fast-paced, dragging you behind him.
"Babe, my short little legs can't keep up with your monstrous ones," you shout.
He slows down, glancing back at you and flashing an apologetic smile. "Sorry, Babe."
You chuckle as you walk side by side to your favorite stop: the Owl Post window. You open your map, gripping your Sirius Black's wand, and give it a flick as you say, "Ventus" loud and clear.
The window is lit with life as papers fly around the window, making you reveal a smirk. You turn to Shawn and wave your wand, shouting. "Better watch out Muggle. I'll give you a pig's tail like your friend Dudley!"
Shawn gasps. "Who are you to mistake me for a Muggle? I am highly offended! I am part of the brave and courageous Gryffindor house." Shawn pulls out his wand from his back pocket, gives it a flick toward you, and shouts, "Expelliarmus!"
You drop your wand and grip your hand. "Ah!"
Shawn laughs so hard as do you as you reach down to grab your wand.
"Y/N, I know this secret place in Hogsmeade that I gotta show you!" Shawn pulls you away from the Owl Post window and towards the middle of Hogsmeade where a bunch of teenage girls was holding their cell phone cameras up.
"Shawn? What's --" But you didn't know where Shawn went. He wasn't at your side where he was a minute ago, and he wasn't anywhere in the crowd.
A large group of people, both females and males, dressed up in tuxedos jog out to the middle of the grounds, and you hear the strumming of a guitar and Shawn humming.
Your heart starts beating a million times a second. It suddenly hits you on what's going on.
The girls on the sides start hollering and cheering.
You feel hands on your shoulders and see Shawn's parents, Aaliyah, and your family behind you with such warm and happy smiles. You turn to see Shawn on his guitar and a headset microphone on.
"To be young and in love in New York City (New York City). To not know who I am but still know that I'm good long as you're here with me. To be drunk and in love in New York City. Midnight into morning coffee. Burning through the hours talking."
Tears swell in your eyes, the fire-breathing dragons are back and your heart's ready to burst.
The flash mob starts snapping their fingers, and so does the crowd of people swarming from all around.
"Damn, I like me better when I'm with you. I like me better when I'm with you. I knew from the first time, I'd stay for a long time 'cause I like me better when I like me better when I'm with you." Shawn sings as he makes eye contact with you. The flash mob starts dancing, drawing you in. One of them grabs a chair and you sit down. Soon enough, Shawn is in front of you singing. "I don't know what it is but I got that feeling. Waking up in this bed next to you swear the room. Yeah, it got no ceiling. If we lay, let the day just pass us by. I might get to too much talking. I might have to tell you something."
He stops strumming the guitar, gets one knee, and says into the microphone where everyone, even your family and probably everyone in the park to hear, "Y/N, I can't imagine living my life without you." He pulls out a box, opens it, and reveals a diamond ring. "Will you marry me?"
You kneel in front of him, tears in the brim of your eyes, and whisper one, small word. "Yes!"
Shawn slips off the promise ring he got you and on the engagement ring. You smash your lips against Shawn's as you wrap your arms behind his neck.
The crowd cheers and cameras flash as they capture the beautiful moment and start of your and Shawn's life together.
If Shawn doesn't propose to his girlfriend like this, he's doing it wrong! lol. I hope you liked it! - Kay
