The "Proposal"

The first of March, we were at our pub playing a weekly trivia quiz against other teams. Our team just consisted of the two of us. Sometime in the middle of the rounds, he stared at mid-air smiling.

"Why are you smiling? At nothing again?"

"I am content..."

"You are happy?"

" girl asks me out, I'm playing trivia with her at my favorite pub, life is beautiful...Those are grounds for being happy, right?"

"Hmm...yeah, I guess...." I couldn't come up with any other response. He just called me "my girl" for Pete's sake. It sent a butterfly in my stomach. I smiled at him.

"What?" He asked

"Well...this is like that answer you put on that questionnaire I gave you.... 'Where do you wish you were right now' and your answer was 'This is a superfluous question.'"

"Ha ha...I like my answer. You'd better keep that questionnaire, because there might be no one else that will need to fill it."

"I do keep it. I keep everything..."

A couple hours later, I popped him what was on my mind....

"You're calling me a girlfriend?"

"Yes...aren't we? We were already like that since last weekend...So, yeah we are officially a bf/gf now. I mean we've been going out for months, I don't know what will happen in the future, I am happy with what we have now, I care about you, and I think you're a prospect."

I didn't even remember what my response to those bombardments. There are no cheesy I-love- you's, it is an understanding, I suppose.

I'm hoping he's the one.
