"Don't forget...I'm just a man...asking you to love him back."
These were the words he told me one afternoon when he asked to meet with me at the school's garden. I was dumbfounded at first...then I felt nervousness and excitement. I mean...who wouldn't? The soccer heartthrob told me that he had something to tell me. I was like what could he possibly want to tell me? I had just been that ordinary girl who's one of the students who excel in class and is kind enough to help those who asked for it. How can he possibly notice someone as plain and simple as me? There were the cheerleaders, the populars and other girls who are much more beautiful than I am.
At first I couldn't believe it. I thought that maybe it was just a prank. I didn't even give him a reply.
The next day, he showed up in front of my house and even offered to carry my bag. He even sent me presents and letters. This continued for two months and I thought to myself, 'He must be serious. I mean...he wouldn't be courting me for two months just for the heck of it, right?'
"Hye Ri-ah..." I hear him say my name as he knelt in front of me and offered his hand. "May I have this dance?"
I placed my hand in his as I stood up and say, "It would be my pleasure."
Today is the annual Christmas Ball of the Academy. I'm wearing a strapless, baby pink dress that falls right below my knees. But, he looks rather dashing in his suit...it made me look a little...underdressed...just a little.
A thousand years started playing in the background as he held my hand and waist and pulled me closer to him. I placed my free hand over his shoulder and we swayed to the song.
"Luhan?" I call his name but immediately looked down when he stared into my eyes. I felt my face heat up. "What made you fall for me?" I ask but felt embarrassed the moment I said those words out loud. His reply only made my heart beat even faster.
"Do I even need to have a reason to love you? I don't know...I just woke up one day and realized that I already fell in love with you."
These words made me stare into his eyes and find that I couldn't avert my gaze. His eyes were beautiful...You could drown into them but you wouldn't want to be saved.
(#A Thousand Years by ChristinaPeri)
One step closer...
I have died everyday
Waiting for you
Time has brought heart to me
I have loved you
For a thousand years...
I'll love you for
A thousand more...
"Hye Ri-ah, what are you thinking about?" he asked me as he carressed my hair.
We are having a picnic. And right now, I'm laying my head on his lap as he carresses my hair.
I look up to him and say, "Nothing...just wondering how someone as amazing as you became mine."
"You're quite amazing yourself." he says and leaned to me, kissing my forehead.
I couldn't ask for a better man in my life when I already have the man I dreamed to be with me in the future.
After years of dating, it finally happened.
He asked me out for dinner and I was amazed when I saw the place where we were supposed to have our dinner.
It was an amazing and wonderful place. There was a table with two chairs in the middle of a beautifully lit garden. It was as if I was living in a fairy tale.
We had an amazing dinner. And that was when it happened.
Slow music started to play in the background, I don't even know how he managed to prepare all these. He stood up and neared me. He knelt in front of me, a box on hand, saying these exact words...
“Kim Hye Ri...would you give me the pleasure of your existence in my life until the day I die?”
I said yes of course. I love him, he loves me. He courted me for years and now that he proposed to me there's no reason to say no.
