“Can I take off the blindfold now atleast please”, she asked, hoping he’d allow her to see where he was taking her, she had no idea as to where they were going and the anticipation was making her more anxious!
“Wait for a while, gorgeous, we’ll be there soon”, he said as he took her hand in his and rubbed his thumb over her hand to soothe her. He had planned a lot for that day and he didn’t want anything to go wrong, at all, so he was being extra careful to not spoil the surprise for her. Soon, they reached their destination, and he parked the car and told her to wait for him, and got out of the car to go to her side and opened the door for her and gave her his hand to hold since she was still blindfolded.
“Guess, where we are?” he asked as he positioned himself behind her to remove the blindfold! Just as the blindfold was lifted off her eyes, she squinted a bit, trying to adjust to the light while at the same time trying to look at the place where they had arrived at!
“You remembered!”, she said in an overly excited tone as she turned around and threw her arms around him. He had brought her to a concert of her favourite singer, Ryan “Shawtie” Ryder. She had told him of her desire to attend his concert in the initial days of their relationship and she had absolutely no idea that he would have remembered this about her. The smile on her face said it all, her happy expressions, the glint in her eyes, let him know how much she had loved his surprise. He loved surprising her, for she’d hug him tightly each time and he absolutely loved those amazing hugs of her. It made him want to do even more for her, for she was worth doing all this for!
Getting the tickets for the concert was no easy task but he had done it, for her, as a gift to show how grateful he felt about her presence in her life. “This is just amazing, I still can’t believe I am here attending Shawtie’s concert.” She shouted in his ear over the loud music that thumped all around them, swaying to the beats. “This is for you, my love. You deserve it! Come ‘on, let’s go have something to eat”, he said as he pulled her away from the crowd towards the cafeteria.
He ordered sandwiches and cold drinks for both of them and then proceeded to be seated, he held the chair back for her to sit on and then sat in front of her. Suddenly, he stood up, went beside her and knelt on his knee, hearing her gasp in excitement,”what are you planning to do?” she asked with a shocked look, “do you really want to know?”, he exclaimed in a serious manner. “Well, yes of course”, she looked like she’d jump up and down the chair in excitement.
“Well, I don’t know how to say this, but I wanted to tell you that, I, I am tying my shoelaces!” he laughed as soon as he said this, since the expressions on her face were one to watch! She hit her playfully on his shoulder, “You, mister, are crazy”. “Come, let’s head back to concert already! I think your favourite track may be next!”, he chuckled!
And together, they ran towards concert hall hand in hand.
