With it being our anniversary, the work day went by extra slow because I was anxious to celebrate with him after work. As 5 p.m. got closer and closer, I still had no idea what he had planned for us and I hadn't heard from him all day. 15 minutes til, two of my coworkers kept me a little late after work to help them with a few things. My boss then called one of my coworkers asking if anybody was left in the office to help her rescue a stray dog that was in front of the school. (That was their way of tricking me.) We grab our things and make our way downstairs to the front of the school and as soon as I open the giant wooden doors of school, I see my family waiting at the fountain and my first reaction is, "Oh my God." Right then and there, I knew.
My sister took my bag and walked me to this beautiful gazebo that is on campus, beautifully decorated. (Thanks to my mom, sister and his little brother.) As soon as I saw him, I practically power walked my way to him, hoping I wouldn't trip, met his little brother halfway and then continued my way to him. After that, it was all a blur. It happened so fast. John Legend's "Ordinary People" instrumental was playing. He gave me his speech (that I don't remember because I was too busy crying/smiling/shocked) and before he got down on one knee, he showed me the ring that was on a red rose inside a glass case like in Disney's Beauty and the Beast.
