"Brianna?!" Malik called taking me out of my train of thoughts. Honestly, I was so deep in thoughts about what he has to say. He seemed so nervous. Is he breaking up with me?! No! No! He can't. I mean come on, he prepared me all of this. He won't just break up with me.

"Yes?!" I replied. A smile formed on his lips and then he said, "We're here."

He kissed my lips and then went out. He opened the door for me and I smiled blushing. He smiled back and then held his hand. I took it gladly and we walked in.

"A reservation for two under the name Malik," Malik said and the guy nodded. I realized that it was a restaurant and it was really like really fancy for casuals. I felt like a fish out of water. I glared at Malik because of the position he put me in. Did he want to embarrass me?!

"Yes, sir!" the guy said and then he walked to a lift. We entered and then he pressed a number and under us going up.

"Calm down, it's cool," he looked at me with a smile.

When the lift was opened I was standing in front of the best place ever. It was on the roof but I can tell that it was really expensive. There were some swings and slides for kids. It had some tables for  adults. It also had a buffet. I smiled and then the guy bowed slightly and went down. I was really happy.

"Do you like it?!" he asked and I couldn't believe it. How was he asking that?! I loved that place. I don't want to leave.

"I love it," I yelled with a smile. I hugged him and then we sat down together. We talked and I couldn't have been happier. I bet that this was better than anything in my life. We talked and laughed. I went on the swing and he pushed me. I was really happy. I couldn't stop laughing. I hated that but time ran. After we had lunch, I felt that the sky was dark. Malik looked at the sky and he grew nervous. He wasn't like that.

When we came in, he said, "You know why I brought you here?!". I gave him my attention and waited. He smiled and then he replied, "I missed so much years without you and I am here for my rights. Back then you used to play in the playground and this is why the swings are there. But unfortunately we get tired, so the seat and the table. This place is all ours. I love you baby, so much."

My eyes grew watery and I couldn't have been happier. After he explained, I ran to the swing and sat down. We started playing and I couldn't have been happier. When lunch came, I was pretty hungry. We tucked in but I could sense Malik every now and then checking on me. Everything seemed perfect so what was wrong. What did he have against night?! Malik smiled at me and then a waiter came. He put a cake in front of us and we started eating. I fed Malik some bites as I wanted to show him that I cared as much as he did. He was so romantic and so I could.

I smiled and then he said, "This is probably the stupidest thing ever."

He smiled and chuckled slightly but then he said, "But I have to."

I smiled encouragingly. He grabbed his phone and typed something in. After that, he said, "Countdown!"

"Ten!" I started histantly. He nodded and I went on with more courage. I was kind of shaken and my heart was beating so fast but I was with Malik and with him nothing could go wrong.

"Nine!" he said.

"Eight!" I said with a smile.

"Seven!" he held my hand and then kissed it making me blush.

"Six!"

"Five!"

"Four!"

"Three!"

"Two!"

"One!" as soon as I said that. There were fireworks everywhere. My eyes started to water with happiness. I looked at them forgetting the man next to me.

"I love you, Brianna!" a light on the sky read. I looked at Malik ready to hug him but instead I found him on one knee. He was looking at me with so much and so much effection. He was looking at me as if I was his light. As if I was his only hapiness. My heart was beating faster and honestly I was more than surprised.

"Brianna, from the moment that I saw you, I knew that one day I would be begging you to be mine. I loved how you smiled, how you talked, how you walked, how you said every single letter. But most of all how you said my name. From the first day, I wanted our relationship to be based on you, but I couldn't do that and I couldn't have been more disappointed in myself. I have done a lot of mistakes. I lied to you and to me. However, everytime you managed to show me that I couldn't lie about my love for you. When you were hurt, I felt like it was me being hurt. When you were crying, I felt my heart dying. When you pushed me away, I wanted to come closer and without you doing that I would have never realized how awful I was to you. I wanted you to stay next to me, but I didn't allow you.

Whenever I was away, your love kept me close. You have no idea about how many night I stayed up thinking of you. You always had my heart even when I totally denied it. I don't know how bad I am or how good you are. I don't know if I will ever love you enough or if I will reach the depth of it. I don't know how I am asking you this right now, but... Can you please make me the happiest man alive and marry me?! Would you marry me, have my name and carry my children?! Are you ready to give up on your name and take mine?" he said and by the end of the speech I was crying. He was way too perfect.

I loved him. I couldn't handle it anymore. Tears escaped my eyes as I hugged him and kissed his cheek. My salty tears was mixed in the kiss. He put his hand on my waist and pulled me close.

"I love you," he said and I smiled, "I love you too. My answer is yes. I wanna marry you. I wanna be yours, baby. I wanna carry your children. I wanna have your name. I wanna be your wife."

"You're so good, baby," he said and kissed me again. I warped my arms around his neck deepening the kiss. That was way too perfect. The moment was the best in my life. That was the best day and the best proposal ever. I loved Malik and today I wanted more than a kiss.

" Malik?!" I called. He seemed to read my mind and the look in my eyes.

"You sure?!" he asked and I nodded. I was ready.

"We don't have to," he said and I shook my head. I smiled and he smiled back. He carried me and then walked out. Today was sure something.
