Leading Penny to the garden was one of the most nerve racking things I've ever done, but she still held my hand confidently. Thoughts kept spinning through my head, 'What if she say's no?", "What happen's then?', "Does she love me enough?', "Is she ready?", "Am I ready?".
The short walk from the hall to the garden seemed like a million miles away instead of just a few steps.
"Wow, you did all this?!" Penny exclaimed as we walked through the double doors. Looking around the garden I didn't even think about the work I'd done until now. Yet another question popped up, "Is it to much?".
Looking around I only put some candles and flowers on the outside tables, admitedly it did look good against the setting sun.
We walked past all that to the stone bench near the fountain and sat down. I held both of her hands in mine.
"Penny. I love you. With all of my non-beating heart. And I want you to spend the rest of eternity with me. For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul. " I looked into her eyes and saw the magic. "Penny," I slid down onto one knee bringing out the small ring box that was in my pocket, "Penny Jane Miller, will you do me the great honour, and become my wife?"
