Calista P.O.V


    Waking up I rolled over looking at the window, the sun streaming in made the room glow with a golden sparkle. Looking over at sleeping Alex I smiled, I could get used to this. His hair was slightly disheveled his chest moving up and down as he breathed.  Not knowing if Aurora was coming or not I went to go get ready.  Placing a pillow in his grasp I watched as he clutched it close to him thinking it was me. Suppressing a giggle I ran into the bathroom.

    About an hour later still no Aurora so I guessed I didn’t have to be anywhere today, throwing my hair up in a braid I put on the one dress I could put on by myself. It was the color of the ocean it hugged my curves in all the right places. Looking to the mirror I noticed two angry red slashes on my back. Frowning not knowing what they meant I walked into the room to see Alex still asleep. Quietly crawling into bed I kissed his lips watching him smile as he woke up.

    “Wakey wakey sleepy head.” I giggled. Groaning he pulled me flush against him laughing he tried to fall back to sleep. “Alex its almost two its time to wake up.” I wined. “And your crumpling my dress, and it’s the only one I can get on by myself so no messing it up.” I playfully slapped his arm. Picking me up bridal style I saw the same look in his eyes that he had when he jumped off the cliff. “Alex no funny business.” I warned.  

    “I have no idea what you mean oh love oh my life.” He said innocently.

    “Uh huh, what are you planning mr?” I asked pointing my finger accusingly lighting pursing my lips.  

    “Nothing just taking a walk with my beautiful soul mate.”

    “Really?” I asked as he walked out into the hallway. That’s when I realized he was dressed, he was awake before I even woke me up.

    “Its just a little surprise. That Aurora helped me set up.” He admitted flashing a smile.

    “Okay, fine, but if I end up being thrown into water I will get my payback.”

    “That is duly noted, but your tiny I don’t think you could hurt a fly.”

    “That sounds like a challenge.” I said raising my eyebrows. “challenge accepted.” Chuckling he carried me outside. After a few moments I saw a greenhouse but it was pitch black inside. Walking inside he carried me in, I couldn’t see a thing but I’m guessing he could see because we didn’t bump into anything. Setting me down in a chair he walked away from me. Feeling cold without his embrace I shivved in his absence.

    “Uh Alex where are you? I can't see-” As soon as I said that twinkling lights showed up everywhere revealing in front of me a bouquet of lilacs, my favorite meal and a single rose. “Awww oh my god its soo pretty!” I blushed as he kissed my cheek sitting in front of me. Picking up a fork he held a bit of the cheesecake to my mouth, just as I was about to eat it he pulled it away and ate it himself. Laughing I picked up a slice of the cheesecake and threw it at his head. Shocked he stood still as the cake slid down his face.  

    “You didn’t just-”

    “Oh yes I did.” Laughing he started to move close to me.

    “Come here.”

    “NO!” I yelled running away, using his inhuman speed he ran in front of me and nuzzled my neck getting the cake all over me too. Laughing he leaned into kiss me. Kissing him back he hugged me flush against him. Closing my eyes I sighed with happiness even though I was going to have to change my dress. Giggling I was just about to lick the cheesecake off his cheek when he suddenly staggered back turning me around.

    “Calista, what’s on your back?” He questioned.

    “Uh I don’t know I must have scratched it while I was sleeping, why?”

    “Its not a scratch.” Panicking slightly I pulled away trying to look at my back. “Your wings are coming in, they should be in by the end of the night.” He said proudly. Looking to the wall I could faintly see two silver lines that replaced the angry red ones. Squealing happily I ran up and tackle hugged Alex. I lightly punched his arm Laughing as we fell to the ground he looked me in the eyes.

“You scared me you big dummy.” I pouted.

“But I’m your big dummy right?” He asked his lips forming a goofy smile.  Placing a finger on my lips I pondered the subject and laid my head on his chest.

    “Hmmm, I dono..”  

    “You dono?” He teased, flipping me so he was on top of me a devilish smirk crossed his face. Pinning my arms above my head he kissed my forehead all the way down to the base of my neck. Pulling one arm free  I gently placed a finger to his lips and then to mine with a soft giggle. Kissing my lips he then propped himself up on one arm beside me. “Still don't know if im your big dummy?” He asked with a slight pout. Damn he was adorable I thought. “Hey, I’m not adorable .” He stated protectively.

“Uhuh whatever you say.” I smiled teasing him.

“Take it back.” He growled playfully.

“Nope.” I said being sure to pop the p. Gently pulling me closer to him he smiled and said it again.

“Take it back.”

“Nopppe.”  I giggled.  

“Alright you asked for it.” Before I could even figure out what he was doing he pinned me to the ground and started to tickle me.

“No,no, hey stop it!” I laughed trying to seize his hands.

“Then take it back”  

“Fine!” I exasperated in defeat finally able to breath with no longer being assaulted by tickles. “My big dummy is in no way shape or form adorable.  Happy?”

“Ecstatic.” He smiled placing a kiss on my lips. “Did you look at your lilacs yet?”

    “Yeah there beautiful.”

    “No I mean really look at them?” He said strangely.  Puzzled I walked back to the table and picked up the lilacs, as I did that I heard a soft clang on the ground. Looking down my eyes started to glaze over. Slowly bending down I picked up the white gold ring. It was an marquise cut with diamond accents slowly fading into a small vine design. Holding it in my hand I looked up to Alex who bent down to look me in the eyes. Taking the ring from my hand he held it in his.

    “Calista, you’re the most beautiful woman I have ever met, your fun caring even though I have messed up you forgave me and I am so grateful for that. I don’t want to ever lose you, I want to spend the rest of my life with you, I want us to start our life together.You're the other half of my soul, every laugh ,every smile with you completes me in no way anything ever could. I knew from the moment I saw you chasing the fireflies that I wanted to spend the rest of my life making you happy.   So I ask you for the honor to have your hand in marriage and the privilege to call you my wife.” By the time he finished his speech tears were streaming down my face, nodding my head eagerly he flashed me a world winning smile placing the ring on my finger. Caressing my face with his hand his mystic blue eyes met my green ones.  

    “I love you.” I smiled, my voice filled with so much emotion and love I could hardly contain my happiness.

    “I love you too.” He said leaning in to kiss me. Laughing to myself I thought of what Lilly would say when she found out everything, although part of me knew that she knew what was going on.  

    Pulling apart to the sound a footsteps I looked to see Aurora with a smile on her face.

    “Awe, I’m sorry to interrupt but I must steal the princess away to get her ready for the ball. Its in two hours. Amir should be here in a few moments to bring you to get your tux Alex.” She said, I felt Alex stiffen next to me.

    “I guess ill see you in a little while.” I said quickly kissing him and following Aurora out the door, slowly the aroma of the greenhouse faded as we walked back, looking down at my hand I smiled at the ring gleaming in the sunlight  and admitted to myself for the first time. I’m getting married.
