Our Destiny (Sequel to Fallen)

It's been a year since Karla started to remember, and everything looks perfect. It feels perfect.

When Justin and Karla find themselves in a situation they can't get out of, will their love be enough?

20. The end

-2 years later-

Justins POV

I looked into the eyes of my reflection and took a deep breath. I hadn't been this nervous since... ever. My hand moved down to my pocket, the square velvet box was there. Thank god, what would I have done if I lost it? Don't think like that, I told myself. I pulled the box out of my pocket and opened it. It felt as the ring was staring at me. She's going to say yes. That thought kept running through my head over and over again. What if she doesn't? Another voice said in the back of my head. "Justin, are you ready to go?" I heard Karla call from the hall. I never got sick of hearing her voice. "Yeah, just a sec." I responded with a smile. After a last look in the mirror i closed the box and put it down in my pocket again.

Karlas POV

The door slowly opened and out stepped Justin in a full on suit. He looked at me from head to toe. And the biggest of smiles spread over his lips. It was a real smile, not the kind of smile he would make if he tried to look sexy. His eyes went up to my face and I could feel myself blush. I had seen guys looking at girls like that before, like she was his entire world, and I had dreamed that one day maybe someone would look at me like that. And there he was, right in front of me. "You're beautiful." He said, his smile not fading. I looked down at my black lace dress, then up at him again. I crossed my arms over my chest. "Don't I always look beautiful?" I said sarcastically. He took small steps towards me, causing him standing inches away from me. I could feel the warmth from him from this distance. His hand moved up to my cheek. I looked into his eyes. "Of course you do." He moved his head closer to mine and I could feel his lips brush against mine, then he pulled away. He frowned. "But of course, I look a lot better." he said and his smile turned into a grin. "Ha ha ha." I lightly pushed him away from me. "Very funny." I turned away from him and started to walk down the steps of the staircase. I felt his hand wrap around my wrist and then his lips pressed against mine. He pulled away and looked down at me. "I was only joking, nothing can beat your beautifulness." I smiled. "That's not even a word." "Whatever, but come on now." His hand moved from my wrist down to my hand and he lead me down the rest of the steps.

-30 minutes later-

"Let me show you to your table." The big man behind the counter said and walked out into the maze of tables. It was rather packed. It didn't really bother me though, I liked the buzz. I looked over at Justin. He looked rather nervous. I grabbed his hand and intertwined his fingers with mine. He had never liked when he was tightly surrounded by people. He looked at me and gave me a crooked smile, then looked away. When we sat down, I looked at him again. He looked very pale. "Hey, are you okay?" I asked him concerned. His eyes moved to me as he exhaled loudly and shook his head. "Yeah, yeah I'm fine." I frowned. "Promise?" One of his hand moved from under the table and he put it over mine. He smiled as he squeezed my hand. "I promise."

 

Justins POV

"I promise." I responded with a smile. Was I fine though? I could feel my heart pounding in my chest as I for the thousandth time felt for the little box in my pocket. An hour later we were all finished with our food, and I knew it was time. "I'll be right back." I said to Karla. She looked worried for a moment, then she smiled. "Okay." A few moments later I looked at myself in the mirror again. "You can do this." I said. A smile spread across my lips. In a few moments I would ask the girl of my dreams to marry me. I felt like the happiest man on earth. With a new sense of confidence, I walked out of the bathroom. I looked at her from where I came out. She hadn't seen me yet. Just do it. A voice told me. With a smile I walked over to her. She looked up at me and smiled. One last deep breath, after this nothing would be the same. I drew my chair closer and sat down in front of her. "Karla." I said. She frowned. "Yeah?" I grabbed her hands in mine.

Karlas POV

He grabbed my hands in his. "From the first moment I bumped into you, I have thought that you are the most beautiful girl in the world. I fell in love with everything about you, your eyes, your smile, your humor." he begun. I looked down at the floor with a smile and felt my cheeks blush. "We have been through a lot together, to say the least. It's not been easy. And I don't think this will be either, but I can't think of any other way to spend my life than with you." His eyes hadn't left mine since he came back. I could heart my heart pound, like it was stuck in my throat. Slowly, he let go of my hand and stood up from his chair and then reached down into his pocket. I watched speechlessly as he got down on one knee in front of me, and opened the black velvet box that was in his hand. I stared down at the sparkly ring. "Will you marry me?" My chest filled with a warm feeling. I couldn't say a word. I just nodded and looked at him with teary eyes. The same smile that he had given me earlier that day before we left home was back in his face, except that this one was, somehow, even bigger. He stood up and I did the same. He pulled the ring out of the box and took my left hand in his. Carefully he put it on my finger. Then I pulled him towards me and kissed him passionately. Suddenly I heard people clapping around us. I pulled away from Justin and looked around in the restaurant. All of the people stood up and clapped at us with smiles. I laughed as Justin pulled me to his chest and in that moment I swear, I knew I was the happiest girl alive.

 

A/N Hello! After about.. what is it now? 2 months? Something like that. I've finally gotten around to writing the last chapter. I've had a lot of fun and a lot of frustrations whilst writing Fallen and Our Destiny. Also a lot of writers block. Either way this is the end. I don't plan on writing more, mainly since I don't enjoy it as much as I used to. Maybe I'll come back someday? I don't know. Anyway, I hope you have enjoyed reading these stories. As always, stay awesome :3
