I crept towards the church, catching a glimpse of the stained glass windows, a riot of colour in a dreary grey world. The previous day’s rain had left gigantic puddles down the path. There was an eerie presence that day. Since the terrible rains had come no one left their homes, but for me this was the only way to see him. As I tip-toed around the puddles I heard something, what was it? I span around, and to my delight I saw a tall, dark, handsome guy looking at me longingly with his deep, chocolate brown eyes.
“Hello stranger” he said walking towards me. I didn’t know what to do, I’ve been imagining this moment for weeks now, but when the time came I just totally froze. He was only a few feet away from me. I couldn’t resist. I ran up to him, and wrapped my arms around him.

“I’m so glad you came, I’ve missed you so much” I smiled. He kissed my forehead, and hugged me tighter. There was more affection in that single kiss than I’d had in my entire life. As we stood clinging to each other we heard voices getting closer, we ran up the path, this time not bothering to dodge the puddles. We ducked behind a large bush and held our breaths until the voices had past. It was only a few old ladies gossiping.
“Do you think they know we’re here?” I whispered, hoping they’d gone.
“Of course not, they’re just some deaf, nosey old bats. Any way where were we my beautiful girl? Dec said, wrapping his arms around my waist, and kissing me. My god have I missed his kisses; it was like fireworks in my mouth, our tongues danced together. I forgot everything that was wrong with my life at that moment; we walked hand in hand down the back of the church to the little stream. Well, it was a little stream but now it was a great river, with water gushing over the rocks into the church courtyard.
“Close your eyes” Dec said placing one hand over my eyes and taking my hand with the other to lead me. We walked a few steps before we stopped. Declan let go of my hand.
“Keep your eyes closed Imo….. nearly done….. Ok you can look” I opened my eyes and Declan was standing next to the big oak with one arm pointing to the trunk, I could see some markings in the tree but from the distance I couldn’t make them out. I walked closer until I could read it. “Imo I will always love you D.” Oh my god, that was the sweetest thing I’d ever seen. I ran up to him and jumped into his arms.
We slowly opened the back door to the church, I noticed on the balcony there candles flickering about the place, I looked at him confused. Declan lead me up the cold, stone steps. There were more candles, blankets and a basket.
“My lady, let me escort you to your table” Dec said bowing and taking my hand. I tried so hard to contain my giggles but I just couldn’t.
“I’m sorry, its not amazing I know but this is all I could get” He apologised as we sat down. I could still feel the harsh notches in the wooden floor, but that couldn’t ruin today. Declan had gone to so much effort, I lent over to him and kissed him on the cheek.
