It all began with a three letter word. A simple one syllable word that held so much feeling. Just one word that had taken more guts than any other thing she’d ever done. She hadn’t known it would be the start of something new. She hadn’t known it was just the beginning of a whole new world for her.
She hadn’t expected her to reply with an easy smile and a “hey” back. She hadn’t expected that minutes after uttering that word, they would be talking about anything and everything. She hadn’t expected that she would give her her number. She hadn’t expected herself to call her the next day. She hadn’t expected their dates to be anything special. She hadn’t expected it to go on for as long as it did. She hadn’t expected her to say “I love you” and she hadn’t expected herself to reply with “I love you too.”
She hadn’t expected any of it, but it happened, and she never wished it hadn’t.
The day she said that 3 lettered word, she didn’t know she was entering a very important phase of her life. Little had she known that one day she would ask her to move in with her. Little had she known that earlier than she expected, she would be meeting her parents and that they would love her so much. Little had she known that their fights would hurt her so much and her kisses would make her feel like she was on Cloud 9. Little had she known that soon she would get down on one knee and ask her to marry her. Little had she known that she would say yes quicker than anything in the world. Little had she known that those sparks on the night they first met would ignite into a fire, impossible to drown.
She didn’t think any of it would happen, but it did, and she never wished it hadn’t.
Today, she stood at the end of the aisle in a white dress and a bouquet of flowers in her hand. She stood at the other end in front of the minister with tears glistening in her eyes. She walked down the aisle as everybody rose and she couldn’t believe where she was. It felt as though only yesterday they were at that bar where they first met and yet it seemed like they’d been together forever.
She reached the porch where she was standing, nervously looking into her eyes.
“Hey,” she whispered.
She smiled that same easy smile she’d give her that first night they met.
“Hey,” she whispered back, and suddenly the world seemed to shift just for them and everything was perfect.

Hope you liked it 🙂
