'Twin hearts..' Adam spoke softly to the young woman sitting beside him as the sun poked its head into view above the trees at the end of the huge field. She was mesmerized by his voice, captivated in ecstatic abandon, closing her eyes swept up in his words..
With his arm wrapped around her shoulder and gently twirling her hair round his fingers; breathing slowly he told her his true feelings..
When he had done, gently, he tilted her face to him..
He kissed her forehead and noticed a single tear form on the outer edge of her eye, he kissed it softly. Reaching into his pocket he then spoke so quiet that her heart jumped at his words..
'My best friend, my soul mate, the most beautiful woman I've ever known...' he paused..
'Will you marry me?'
Maryanne looked at her best friend of 11 years then back down to the black velvet box in his hands.. a small delicate glistening Sapphire and Diamond ring waiting her answer.
Cupping a hand gently on his cheek, she whispered 'yes' then kissed him for the very first time.
Slipping the ring onto her finger, He asked quietly.. 'Do you like it?'
'Oh Darling.. It's perfect.'
Both feeling elated, they sat cuddled into each other watching the stunning sunrise before them... Smiling.
