" My lady, wake up,"
" Let me sleep more,"
" Have you forgotten that you have a date with Chen You?"
She whispered behind my ear. I quickly get up.
" What is the time?"
" It is between 8-9 am,"
I stopped immediately.
" Hey, Xu Liqin," I shouted " You have grown wings, I have a meeting with him at 12-1 pm,"
" I am sorry, that is the only way to wake you up," she said while looking down
" The only way?"
She did not say anything
I did not talk to her and I went to the bathroom.
[A few hours later]
I went to meet with Chen You, my boyfriend whom I have been dating for 5 years. He said he wants to see me all of a sudden. I arrived at the place.
" You are here," he said with a smile
" Yes, hope I didn't make you wait,"
" You did...a lot,"
He laughed and he touched my nose. We order our food.
" This is the food you like,"
" There is no one who knows me better than you,"
" If I did not know you well, then am I qualified to be your boyfriend?"
" You got a point there,"
We both laughed, all of a sudden he put on a serious face.
" Is everything the matter?"
" Xu Xiang,"
He holds my hand.
" We have been dating for 5 years,"
What is he getting at?
" I want you to be the mother of, my children,"
I was surprised.😳
" I don't like it when I am sending you home, I want to be with you 24/7," he was still holding my hand " You are my life, I don't think I can leave without you, so will you marry me,"
I shook my head.
He puts the ring in my hand. Tears flow down from my eyes.
" Why are you crying?'
" I am not crying, it is a cry of joy,"
I could not hold it any longer and I went to hug him.
[A few minutes later]
He walked me home while we were holding hands.
" I will tell my parents the news,"
" I will too,"
He comes closer and kissed me in my forehead.
I waived at him and he left.
I entered inside and I saw my mother looking down and my father sitting down and It looks like they are waiting for me.
" Mom, Dad is anything the matter?"
" Sit down," my dad said
I sat down. I was dying with curiosity wanting to know what happens.
" What is it?"
" You will be getting married to the prince of Heakha kingdom,"
I was shocked. I could not believe my ears.
I looked at my mom and she was quiet not wanting to look at my face.
" You will be getting married in 3 days,"
I stand up
" Dad, what is this nonsense?" I was angry " I was just being proposed to by the man I loved. I was so happy coming here wanting to tell you the good news but instead what I am hearing is I should get married to a prince I don't even know,"
" Are you talking about that useless boy? What can he do for you? All he could do is tell you how much he loves you,"
" Yes, he can not do anything for me but being with him makes me happy,"
" Happy? Do you know the definition of happy?"
" Don't say anything, I don't want to listen to your nonsense,"
He looked at my mom.
" You woman, go and prepare for the wedding of your daughter,"
My mother stays silent.
" Fine.....If you have decided to get me married to him then be prepared for seeing your DAUGHTER COFFIN,"
I shouted and then I left.
" Xu Xiang,"
My mother shouted.
I didn't look back.
