“I have some good news”, she said, smiling timidly.
“Surprise me,” he muttered.
They had just had a pointless disagreement and he was still frowning about the misunderstanding.
She was trying to liven the mood.
“I won a giveaway!” She jumped in excitement.
He couldn’t help but smile.
He loved how when she got all excited she resembled a little girl; innocent, sweet, and enthralled with everything. The happiness was contagious.
He was expecting to hear of some cosmetic products, or something similar, as this is what was usually given away on social media.
“A trip for two to Paris!” she exclaimed.
His eyes opened wide and he was lost for words.
“Really?! All expenses paid? For the both of us?!”
“Yep! Get ready to fly!”
And just like that, everything changed.
Paris was her dream location. It was the only capital city in Europe she had not set foot in.
He had promised himself if they managed to go there together, it would be the place where he would propose; to capture her heart forever.
