WISHING ON A STAR
Ok, you guys know how much I LOVE telling stories, especially when they are based on real life.
And you know I LOVE knowing something Y’all don’t know and then getting to tell you.
And you also know how much I LOVE making HUGE, DRAMATIC ANNOUNCEMENTS…I’d be the perfect wedding toast writer…don’t steal that idea I am already putting it in a book….anyway sit back…I got something to tell you. Don’t for get to read slowly and click the link so you can hear the music too.
Are you playing the music…good now do the dreamy wavy thing from the old sitcoms and picture this.
Nicole stood at the bank of window in the old mid century ranch style house. The sky was exceptionally bright tonight. Stars twinkled and danced and the leaves of the old sycamore tree sang along with the breeze.
Rose Royce drifted from the PA system a soft dreamy song ironically about wishing on stars and true love.
Nicole sighed deeply; she couldn’t believe Michael had talked her into coming to his parents house, a house she’d practically grown up in and packing all the rest of their knick-knacks. Looking around the loft a sense of sadness washed over her. Michael’s parents moving was actually more heartbreaking than when her own parents had decided to sell her childhood home and migrate to the warmer climate of the Florida keys.
Turning she made her way down the stairs and nearly tripped and broke her neck. Actually she didn’t fall all the way down, she just missed that one step that caused her to grasp for air, call on the lord and watch her Thirty three years flash before her eyes.
She only righted herself and calmed down when the deep rumble of laughter caught her ears. Shooting a startled glance over the empty space below she caught Michael as he was bent at the waist grasping for air, pointing and laughing his ass off at her.
“OhMyGod! YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN YOUR FACE”
“You’re about to see my foot, up your ass.”
“Whatever, come over here mom left some stuff she wanted you to have.”
Nicole made her way to were Michael had created a make shift table out of boxes, There lined in a row were three small velvet boxes.
Pulling her into his embrace Michael settled Nicole and himself on the floor her back to his chest, their legs tangled.
“Why would your mom leave me jewelry,” Nicole whispered, “wouldn’t she want your sisters to have it”
“Actually,” Michael said, drawing one long leg in so that it was across her lap preventing her from moving, I picked out this stuff a while ago and have been waiting to give it to you.
He leaned forward and grabbed the first box and revealed tiny platinum earrings in the shape of x’s, slowly he helped her to put them on.. “so you’ll always have my kisses in your ear” he whispered…
Nicole didn’t say anything but her body trembled. The second box was opened and the sparkle of a platinum chain caught her eye two circles linked in infinity hugging a huge pink heart shaped diamond were gently draped around her neck and clasped together… “so that you will always know we will always be together…in your heart and in mine…”
Nicole couldn’t help it, the tears began to spill over and she couldn’t slow her heart beat
Michael opened the final box and placed the huge platinum solitaire on her finger…”so that you know that no matter how far you run, I will always be here.”
“I sorta thought you were supposed to ask a woman to marry you”
“I am not asking any woman anything…I am telling my wife, we are getting married”
“And if I run?”
“If you try to run I swear I’ll spank you in front of God and everybody”
“DON” T YOU DO IT NICOLE, WE DIDN’T DRIVE ALL THE WAY TO MICHIGAN TO BE SCARED FOR LIFE”
“Yeah, it’s bad enough you tricked us into walking in on mom and dad that one time”
Nicole almost broke Michael’s nose as the voice of her twin baby sisters rang out in unison, the lights came on and family and friends poured into the living room with smiles and tears on their faces…
“I can’t believe you planned this” Nicole whispered as she and Michael stood in the back yard. They’d been hugged and congratulated to death until finally her sisters had helped them sneak out for a moment alone. She watched the moonlight twinkle in his eyes…and was moved to tears as he dropped down to one knee.
“When we were little you used to sneak over here and lay in the grass with me…when I asked you what you were wishing for you’d always say true love. Well, here I am… your wish come true.”
At that moment a shooting star raced across the sky and Nicole knew this was it…there was no need to wish for anything else..
FADE TO REALITY….
Ok so how was that…
Oh you’re waiting for the announcement still…
