Chapter 9 : Another Love Song
Emily, Hanna, and Rachel are having lunch together.
“Em, are you waiting for someone?” Hanna asked her because she kept checking on her phone.
“Ummm no. I just… It’s Kate.”
“What’s wrong with Kate?”
“Umm, I’m waiting for her call or text. Whatever, never mind.”
“Geez Em, it’s only two hours since she left. Whipped much, huh?”
“Shut it, Rach!”
“Hey, be nice to my girl,” Hanna slapped her arm playfully and Emily sighed, “I just miss her. Why can’t we just lay in bed all day? It’s Sunday, why does she have to go to some stupid dancing practice? She doesn’t need practice, she’s a great dancer.”
Hanna and Rachel just laughed at their friend antics.
“Hey guys, hi Baby,” Kate said as she hugged Hanna and Rachel. She gave Emily quick peck on her lips.
“Thank God you’re here Kate, Emily start to act like she forgets to take her medicine or something and we’re scared,” Hanna says playfully.
“Nah, she just misses me,” Kate have this huge grin on her face as she saw Emily’s red flushed face.
“Stop making fun of me, or….”
“Or what babe?” She gave her lover a soft and tender kiss on her lips.
Emily just stared at her, shocked at her sudden action.
“Or what?” Kate asked her again.
“I forget what I wanna say, nothing important.”
“Oooh Em, you’re so whipped,” and they all laughed together, well except Emily of course.
’Geez, hold it together, Em. What’s wrong with you today?’ Emily slapped herself.
They’re cuddling on the couch and watching Sweet Valley High, Emily doesn’t know what happens with her today. She seems can’t take her eyes away from Kate.
“What’s wrong? Something’s on my face?” Kate asked her.
“Where? What is it?
“Right here,” Emily said as she kissed Kate all over her face, “and it’s called beauty.” Kate blushed furiously and slapped her arm playfully.
“Aaaw, stop it Em! You make me blushed!”
“But it’s true. You’re so beautiful. I can’t get enough of you.”
Emily and Hanna are having lunch together, she’s gonna ask Hanna something and she’s really nervous about it.
“Come on Em, spit it out. Are we just sitting here or what?”
“Ummm okay but you have to promise me something. You can’t tell about this to anyone, even Rachel.”
“Okay, I promise. What is it?”
Emily pulled a black velvet box from her pocket, “I’m gonna give this to Kate, what do you think?”
Hanna gasped, “You’re gonna propose her?”
“No. Not yet. It’s a promise ring.”
“But you’re gonna propose her, right?”
“Of course I will. She’s my future and I can’t imagine live in a life without her in it.”
“Whipped Emily is whipped,” Hanna can’t help to laugh.
“Yeah yeah, maybe I am whipped or whatever.”
Hanna continued to laugh as she saw her friend’s face red.
“You’re gonna help me right?”
“Sure. What do you have in mind? Hanna’s at your service, Ma’am!”
When Kate came home, she found her apartment empty she thought that Emily will be there when she’s home, but instead she found a note on the table.
I just stop by to give you this letter.
I just want you to know that you’re the best thing that ever happened in my life and I love you with all my heart.
I can’t imagine my life without you in it, my future without you with me.
This is the first and maybe the last time I feel so much in love with someone and it scares the hell out of me. I’m scared with the thought that you’re going to leave me someday, I can’t let that happen.
So Kate, what I’m going to say is I can’t take this anymore. I’m too afraid of being so much in love with you and can’t have you in my life.
That’s gonna end now.
Come to the park near the duck pond, I wait for you there.
After reading the letter, Kate ran as fast as she can to the park. It’s already dark and she tried to find the face of the love of her life.
There she was, Emily’s standing by the pond with candles around her that shaped like a heart.
“Em? What’s this?”
“Come here, Babe,” Emily then kissed her passionately and took a deep breath.
Hanna and Rachel watched them from a good distance, they’re so happy for them. They know how hard Emily’s love life and she finally made it. Well, even if it’s not a proposal but still, they know that Kate and Emily belong to each other.
The pain and hurt, the jealousy, the broke up, the beard. That’s all paid up tonight and they feel lucky to witness such a beautiful moment like this.
“Did you read my letter?”
“Yes. Please tell me what’s this about? It’s not our anniversary right?”
“Actually yes. This is our anniversary.”
“What? No, it’s not. I never forget the….”
“Kate, please let me finish,” Emily said.
“Today is gonna be our anniversary for next month,” Kate looked at her with a confusion on her face.
“Because tonight I want to give this to you,” Emily knelt down and gave Kate the black velvet box.
“This is a promise ring. I promise I would never leave you and I don’t think I can take one more night without you sleep next to me. So, Katherine Isabelle Lawrence, will you accept this promise ring? Will you accept my promise to always be there for you?”
“Oh my God Em, this is beautiful. Yes yes YES!”
