It had been two months and Luke had been right, the press had back of nearly completely about Ellas past and thare had even been a couple of articles saying she had been wrongfully treated back then.
Ella was in Vietnam with Tom, he was shooting a new movie, she had had her doubts, but he had practically begged her to go, saying he couldn't stand to be without her.
And she didn't want to be without him either, so she ended up going and they spend every free second together.
She was in the hotel room getting ready, Tom had invited her for dinner, and asked her to dress up, making her somewhat nervous.
Tom was meant to pick her up, but just after she put on the green silk dress, she got a message saying he was late on set, but would get someone to pick her up.
Shortly after someone knocked on the door, and when she opened their was a young man asking for her in broken english.
He made her understand that she should follow him, so she grabbed her back and locked the door following him, he presented her with a bicycle taxi adorned in white flowers.
He drove her through town, down to the river, there was no one there, but the young man pointede to a small jetty and told her to go there.
Ella walked out on it, a little uncertain, but then she spotted a flat bottomrd boat coming towards her, and when it got nearer, she saw Tom standing at the helm waving.
He gracefully jumped to the jetty when it docked, he was wearing a dark tailored suit, his jacket hanging on a chair and his shirt sleeves rolled up.
"Hallo darling, welcome abord, you look marvellous". He kissed her, and helped her onto the boat.
He pulled out a chair for har at a beautifully set table on the deck and the boat started sailing down the river.
"Wow Tom, this is amazing". She smiled at him, it was so typically Tom to do something like this.
He smiled secretive and handed her a glass of champagne. "Just wait darling, it is only getting better".
The waiter started serving their food, it was so good and Ella savoured every bite. When they had eaten, they sailed out onto a lake, Tom grabbed her hand. "This you have to see".
He pulled her with him tomthenhelm of the ship and pointed across the lake at the most breathtaking waterfall cascading down a cliff to the lake. "Isn't it beautiful ?"
"Yes, thank you so much Tom for bringing me here, this is the most breathtaking place I have ever seen". She was staring in amazement.
"I have actually seen one thing even more beautiful, you Ella, you make everything else fade". He grabbed her hand.
Ella turned toward him, biting her lip as he kneeled. "Ella younare already my everything, and I could never live just one day without you, you make me a better person, you make me whole, will you please do me the honor to be my wife ?"
"Yes Tom, yes, there is nothing I would love more". She nodded, trying to hold back the tears as he slipped the ring on her finger and the rose to kiss her lovingly.
