Optional Soundtrack: Take a Chance on Me-JLS
"I think I have everything," she annouced as she looked at the bags by the door. The taxi was enroute and should be there shortly to take her to the airport.
"Not quite," Hiro said.
S'Ahmisa turned around and saw Hiro bend on his knees.
"Will you marry me?"
It seemed like time stood still as he watched her eyes widen and her hand reached up to cover her mouth. He tried to remain hopeful as she looked down at him. He knew that she hadn't had the best track record when it came to relationships. But he knew that she was ready to try again, to take a chance on him, she just needed a little push in the right direction.
S'Ahmisa stared in shock, "Hiro, I...Hiro..."
"What is it?"
"We haven't talked about this at all, this is such a surprise."
"Isn't that what women want, to be surprised?" He asked getting up from his knees.
He knew that she was scared, he could see her hands playing with her nails nervously. He knew that she had feelings for him, though. He knew that there was something, well, more than something bewteen them. They had spent the last two simyears falling joyfully in love. He had been there for her more than 100% of the time, he knew that she would be a bit confused, but he was confident that they would be more than amazing.
"Yes, but no, well..."
"S'Ahmisa, we can get through those things together. We love each other. It doesn't matter where we live, as long as we're together."
It's not that easy, S'Ahmisa thought as he grabbed her hands. Or was it?
"Just say yes, my sweet blossom." He kissed her lightly. "Don't be scared."
S'Ahmisa squeezed her eyes shut. She was scared. She didn't know if she could do this, if she could be trusted with his heart. What if she screwed it up again, what if he regretted taking a chance on her, her with her empty heart, her crazy career, her closed mind. She knew that she was hiding behind so many walls, but in the last two simyears, Hiro had slowly chipped away at those walls. They were still standing, but her heart was starting to be illuminated with the light that came through the cracks. Hiro was a great guy, a dependable and loyal man. He loved her and she never had to doubt his love for her. He supported her wholeheartedly. His love for her wasn't something that she doubted or wondered about.
"I know that, but give us some time. You will grow to love me even more. I can make you happy, I promise you."
She smiled, she doubted that she was capable of loving him even more. It was as if the space allocated in her heart for Hiro was full, yet the space was so tiny. She knew that he would make her happy. Honestly, marrying Hiro was the most rational, logical choice she would ever make. He was everything she had wanted and dreamed of in a man since she was a child whispering with Si'Enya under the covers about their dream princes. Ambitious, handsome, smart, nice and so in love with her. They would be a power couple, like the Kents. They could do so much together and make such a difference in the lives of so many. She had the political clout and simoleans to make things happen and he had the dedication to see it through. Together they would make SimNation greater. They would be limitedless. It made so much sense, how could it be wrong.
S'Ahmisa nodded, "yes."
She glanced around the crowded screen, hoping to see her flight number. She knew that she had a three hour delay, but she just wanted to check to make sure the flight status hadn't changed.
Satisfied with the information, she turned to make her way to find something to eat
and stopped in the sea full of moving bodies.
