She was now one hour late but he decided to wait another hour, she could be testing him, testing his patience and commitment. He kind of deserved it for flirting with her best friend. What the hell was he thinking about to fuck up things like that the same day of his proposal?
But he knew.
She said no and he felt broken, devastated. In all honesty, he felt humiliated, so did the first stupid thing that came to his mind. The blond beauty was there offering him the possibility of revenge and he wanted some, right?
He shouldn’t have felt rejected, Alisson just needed more time.
Fortunately, he was too drunk and hurt to make it worse. Instead of in her friend’s bed, he ended up in jail for public scandal.
There was some movement in front of him and he looked up surprised. Lost in his thoughts he didn’t notice her walking toward the table, toward him. And there was she, as beautiful as always, trying to guess his intentions.
She was good at doing that.
He had nothing to hide though, his hope for a second chance was right there for her to see. They had been acting like friends for the past twelve months because she couldn’t trust him, not like before. But even if she had her reasons, it still felt like a charade, that wasn’t them.
Suddenly the world stopped, at least his did. All the things he had planned for that special night went forgotten. His brain got blocked by one detail.
She was wearing the same red dress she had worn one year ago.
Was she telling him to wait no more?
Unable to control his impulse he kneeled at her feet, offering the ring that had never left his pocket.
“I’d wait for you my entire life, this is just me saying that I’m yours.”
The brightest smile he had ever seen on her face was the answer. She extended her hand letting him know that she accepted the ring, the challenge, offering forgiveness.
“Then be mine and take me all.”
