Freya's POV

To you on this day,

Dear Future Mrs Callaghan,

I like to think of my time on earth up till today as merely surviving. I have survived different obstacles but I realized I never really lived. I never really knew what it was like to dedicate my life to someone. I never felt the need to do better, to be something greater than I already am, to strive and work harder just so I could be deserving of your love and worthy to be yours. I never knew what it was like to let go, spread out my arms and fall without fear. That was until I met you. I found you when I wasn't looking. Loving you has helped me live. Loving you has given me a purpose—to dedicate the rest of my existence showing you how amazing you are.

I wish I could look you straight in the eyes and promise you the world, but the world isn't mine to give.

Instead, I promise to respect, admire and appreciate you for who you are, as well as for the person you wish to become.

I promise to support and protect your freedom, because although our lives are intertwined, your choices are still yours alone.

I promise to seek a deep understanding of your wishes, your desires, your fears, and your dreams.

I promise to always strive to meet your needs, not out of obligation, but because it delights me to see you happy.

I promise to be there for you when you need me, whenever you need me.

I promise to nurture your goals and ambitions; to support you through misfortune, and to celebrate your triumphs.

I promise to keep our lives exciting, adventurous, and full of passion.

I promise to persevere when times get tough, knowing that any challenges we might face, we will conquer them together.

I promise to treat you with compassion rather than fairness, because we are a team, now and for always.

I promise to show you, every day, that I know exactly how lucky I am to have you in my life. I promise you all these and more.

I didn't think this day would come. One where I would stand at the altar waiting for the one I loved to walk down that long ass aisle to me. I never thought I was capable of love. I never even believed in fairytale and shit until you screamed your way into my clinic and my heart.

On this day, I ask that you let us build a home of laughter, love and support. Let us create a warm and welcoming space for the good times and the bad. Let us be a home for each other, forever and ever.

I love you more than I love me and that says a lot. From the man waiting impatiently to be yours.

Javier Callaghan.

"Wow," I folded the paper and held it close to my chest.

"I would ask that you don't ruin the make up but seeing as you've done that already, I'll proceed to ask that you please stop crying so you don't ruin it any further," Rachel dabbed away my tears and sighed as more replaced them. "That boy... I didn't think he had it in him."
