Anni looked out over the city of Kugane, “Beautiful view up here, isn’t it?”
“I love the city at night,” Blanche replied.
“I know right! All the beautiful lights…” Anni paused for a moment. “There is one light, however, whom shines brighter than all the others…” She smiled at her girlfriend.
“Awww baby…” Blanche moved a strand of hair behind Anni’s ear. “The things you say… gosh I love you so…”
Anni smiled warmly. Her heart raced in her chest. “Blanche… the way you make me feel is just amazing. You truly have brightened up my life, I hope…..I mean…..I’d like to think we could be together, forever.
Blanche took Anni’s hands in hers, “of course baby. I’m not going anywhere. Not ever!” She rested her forehead on Anni’.
Anni smiles and closes her eyes. She pauses to take in the moment. The sights, the sounds, the aroma. After a minute passes, Anni turns around and pulls a small black box from her bag. She returns to Blanche, looking her in the eyes. Blanche freezes. Anni sinks down into the water a bit.
“Blanche, you mean more to me than I could have ever imagined. I only hope I can be half as wonderful as you are, as your wife.” Anni opened the box to reveal a gorgeous engagement ring. “Blanche DeLioncourt, will you marry me?”
Blanche gasps with joy. “Oh my god Anni! I… god yes YES! YES! I will baby!” Blanche DeLioncourt beams with delight. Anni’s eyes water as she pulls the ring from the box and slips it onto Blanche’s finger. She embraces her fiancé, holding her tight.
