His heart took over seeing her sad and bashful. He cupped her face in his hands and guided it to his, kissing it slow and sweetly all over, finishing at her lips.

"Separate paths where once they led,
Apart so long their routes unknown,
Converge now, together grown,
Who knows what then lies ahead?"

His own words surprised himself and his face clearly showed it. "I'm not sure if I heard that somewhere or just made that up just now, but what I meant to say is I didn't expect this, expect anything that's happened over the last couple hours.

I didn't expect any of this but I don't think I could be any happier than I am right now, feeling you in my arms, sharing in this intimate serenity. It's like I'm waking up from a dream now finally and I didn't know until right now that I was asleep until now. I guess what I'm trying to say is, and forgive me for how corny this sounds, but will you be my girlfriend?"
