Une magnifique journée.
The sun was out, the birds were singing and a warm breeze kicked up Anni’s veil. It was a perfect day. Not because of the aforementioned setting but because of the love which brought two Miqo’te together.
Tears of joy formed in Blanche’s eyes as she looked at the beautiful kitten beside her. She would find no one more loyal and more committed than Anni.
Anni smiled and looked over at her fiancé. Anni’s heart was pounding in her chest; seeing Blanche so happy brought her own tears of joy to Anni’s eyes.
“I vow to carry you,” Blanche began, “to love you, even to raise you from dying in ze bad puddles of stuff I told you to avoid…” Anni giggled and looked deep into Blanche’s eyes. “But more seriously, meeting you was just the light I needed in my life. We will live a life of wonderful adventures together and I swear to protect you with my life and always give the best of myself.”
Blanche gently slid the ring she painstakingly crafted onto Anni’s trembling finger.
Anni spoke softly, her voice trembled nervously, “At one point, while we were dating, you asked me: “Where have you been all my life?” Many people chuckle at the rhetoric, it is an interesting thought to ponder. I paused for only a moment, looked into your beautiful eyes and answered.
You see, you came into my life at the perfect moment. Or should I say: I came into your life at the perfect moment. Up until that moment, I wasn’t ready for you. I was not yet good enough for you.
You are an amazing woman, a woman who deserves more than just a mate. I had to learn from my mistakes. I had to grow as a woman. I had to become more than I was. Until I did, I did not deserve you.
I can’t express enough just how amazing you are. You’re smart and funny and so very caring. You are perfect in every way: perfect for me. I only hope I can be perfect for you.
As we begin a new life together, I make you this promise: I will be the best I can be for you. You truly make me want to be a better kitty for you.
I love you Blanche DeLioncourt. And I always will.”
Anni wiped a tear from her own cheek, with the back of her hand before slipping a ring, which she also meticulously crafted herself, onto Blanche’s finger.
