10. Chapter 10 | May I ask you a question?
After dinner and hours of fun Nikki, her grandparents and her 14 year old brother Damian decided to go sleep. I was very happy about that. When I was doing a little research of Holland I found out that when a guy wants to marry a girl, he has to ask the girl’s parents if he is allowed to by asking the girls hand. Now I have time alone with Mr. and Mrs. Sanders. I told Nikki I’d join her in half an hour. I kissed her head and she went upstairs. Then I walked back to her parents who were in the living room.
Justin: Mr. and Mrs. Sanders, may I ask you a question?
Mrs. Sanders: Yes of course Justin. You have to call us Daniëlle and Patrick though.
Justin: Okay, well I wanted to ask you… err… Patrick and Daniëlle, may I marry your daughter? I love her so much words can’t even describe. I’m very sorry that I knocked her up with the baby at such a young age. But I actually am very happy that she is going to be the mother of my child. I don’t want anyone else to be my wife. I will always stand by her side and I will make her as happy as I can.
Daniëlle and Patrick looked at each other and smiled.
Patrick: Even though you knocked her up I think you are the best thing that ever happened to her. I didn’t expect to become a grandpa at 44 but those things happen. I think you’re an amazing guy. So yes you may marry her. But if you make her sad or do something terrible I’ll kill you.
Daniëlle started to laugh.
Daniëlle: Honey stop overreacting. You’ll be fine Justin. He won’t kill you. He is just threatening you because he is afraid of losing his little girl. Patrick our little girl isn’t little anymore and I believe she can manage herself. So please act normal to Justin. I don’t want him to get scared of you. Besides, you’re not scary at all.
Justin: I totally understand Patrick. I would do the exact same thing. I will do everything in my power to make her happy and to protect her. Thank you so much.
I got up from the couch and hugged Nikki’s parents. Then I said goodnight and went to my room. Nikki was already asleep. I quickly brushed my teeth and changed. After that I cuddled up to Nikki.
Justin: I love you so much baby.
Then I slowly drifted to sleep. Thinking about how to propose to Nikki.
