5.) Short, But Very Sweet.

04/20/2009

I’ve been meaning to write about this for a while now. My internet was down :(

With the economy the way it is, it’s hard to be giving sometimes. So I’m going to tell a tale,( based on a real live event) about a young maiden who gives  in the time of needing.

Once apon a time, there was a princess who had to go to the market to pick up a few things. While standing in line to purchase some things to have around the palace, she noticed the person in front of her giving back some of the things they had. Wondering why, she listened in and overheard that the people in front of her couldn’t afford all of these things. Being the good princess that she was, she quietly and quickly paid for them in hopes that nobody would notice and the people’s dignity and pride would not be damaged. With this act, the family was given peace of mind for at least a couple of weeks, knowing that there would be food on the table for their children.

Since the internet is a horrible and scary  place for first and last names, this  fair maiden will go nameless.

and to end this abruptly :

3.) I Said Yes

04/08/2009

Today was the best day I’ve had in weeks. I slept in late and still had enough time to get ready and go to school, and  (here’s the kicker) I got asked to prom by the best person in the best way imaginable. Here’s how it went:

I woke up this morning VERY late and had to drive myself to school instead of the usual carpool (sorry environment) anyway… I called my love to see where he was in the building and he tells me not to go into the school by means of our usual route. So I went the other way, to tired to argue. As the day went on, I could tell something was up because  Zachary kept making odd requests like: “QUICK! close your eyes and don’t open them until I say” and “don’t go into the prop room”. Silly things. Anyways by the end of the day I was anxious beyond belief to find out what was going on. So the last bell rings for everyone to go home and Zachary says: “We have to go somewhere”. And he leads me to the Auditorium. (Our second hour and where we had spent most of our time for the past week)  When we get to the lobby, he has me close my eyes and then he leads me onto the stage. All the sudden I hear music and I open my eyes to see 8 little boxes on some platforms :) These 8 boxes are carved and painted black with different words saying “Will You Go To Prom With Me?” The words were illuminated with rope lights so the letters were highlighted with reds and greens. Above me were spinning disco lights that made circles dance all around, and as he turned me to him to retrieve his answer I gave him a small yes, with a small tear of happiness streaming down my face.

It’s amazing how much magic can still be in a relationship after almost two years have gone by. He’s still my one and only prince charming, and I’m still living in a fairytale everytime I see him.
