Prompt: Because I wanted you to have it.
Magic of Pizza
Stepping through the door to my apartment, I stop dead in my tracks.
Am I in the right house? I think to myself as my eyes take in the candles arranged all throughout my living room.
A slight movement from the corner draws my attention, and I see him.
“Edward? What is all this?” I ask feeling confused.
He starts making his way toward me, and when he’s standing in front of me, he smiles.
“Do you remember how you said you’ve never had a candle-lit dinner before?”
Dumbly, I just nod.
He places a hand on my cheek and meets my eyes.
In the candle light, his usually green eyes look more vibrant … more intense.
He kisses my forehead before saying softly, “I lit the candles because I wanted you to have that, baby.”
It finally dawns on me. “Wait, you went through all these troubles just for me?”
“Bella, you have no idea how much I’ll do … just for you,” he replies. “I love you, and if candle-lit dinner is what my girl wishes for, then that’s what she’ll get.”
As I stand there, stunned speechless, he shrugs. “Besides, I didn’t do much. I just ordered us a pizza and lit the candles …”
I don’t even let him finish speaking as I throw my arms around him and pull him in for a kiss. “You ordered pizza? I knew I fell in love with the right man,” I say before kissing him once more.
