Raymond and I were high school sweethearts. We had loved each other for eight years before we ever took it a step further than friendship. On our anniversary, Raymond told me to go to my mother's house and that he would pick me up from there. When he arrived to pick me up he had a single long stem red rose. We left and had a romantic dinner at Kobe steakhouse.
When we got home, I opened the door. When the door came open, there were literally one hundred tea light candles and rose pedals all throughout the living room, then leading into the bedroom. On the table there was a letter from him and he asked me to pick it up and read it. In the letter he expressed his love for me and at the end he wrote, "So will you?" When I turned around, he got down on one knee and proposed. I guess fairytales really do come true!
