She was blindfolded. A black silk scarf was wrapped around her eyes as she sat in the passenger seat on her boyfriend’s car.

Today was her birthday, and he had something planned, but he wouldn’t let her see it until they were completely there. It’s not like she doesn’t like surprises. Okay, maybe she doesn’t. He knows that, but he said she’d like this one. She believed that… But she still hated not knowing where they were going.

He glanced at her. He could see she was pretty frustrated with not knowing, but also filled with anticipation. “We’re almost there.”

“How close is almost?” She asked, turning her head, though she knew she couldn’t see him.

“Close. As in, we’re here.” He parked the car and got out. He closed the driver’s side door as he went around to the passenger door, opened it and helped her out. Closing the passenger side door, he put a hand of hers in his and put one on her back, leading her to where he wanted her to be before he let her see what he set up. He stopped walking, and so did she. “Keep your eyes closed.” He took the scarf off of her eyes.

“Can I open them?” Izzie asked impatiently.

“Yes,” Mark chuckled. “You can.”

When Izzie opened her eyes, she gasped. She stood just outside of a sandy beach. She looked out and saw a picnic basket on top of a dark red table cloth on the sand, a few feet away from where the water reached. A bottle of wine stood atop the cloth with two wine glasses next to it. Small candles were spread all around from where the cloth was.

“Mark… It’s beautiful.” She said softly, looking at the beautiful scenery.

“Really?” Mark suddenly felt nervous. A feeling he didn’t get that often.

She turned around to face him. “Yes. It’s absolutely beautiful ,and so sweet of you.” She smiled. “No one has ever done anything like this for me before.”

“I’m glad I’m your first then.” He smirked.

She rolled her eyes with a smile before putting her hands around his neck and kissing him softly.

After they parted, Mark spoke, “I think we better go over and eat. The food might be getting cold.”

Izzie smiled once again as he took one of her hands in his own and led her to the picnic basket. They both sat on the table cloth, very close to each other. Mark opened the basket and poured them some wine.

For the next forty-five minutes, Mark and Izzie ate dinner. Izzie was surprised to see Mark actually cooked they food. Some was a bit burnt, but it still tasted good, and the thought that he cooked for her made her smile.

When dessert came around, Mark admitted he didn’t cook the dessert, only because he wasn’t the one who was good at baking (it was her). They fed each other, and shared kisses as the sun started to set.

Looking out at the sunset, Mark thought this was the perfect time to do what he wanted to do. “Isobel…” He took her hands in his. “I love you.”

Izzie smiled. “I love you too.”

“I want you in my life for as long as I can have you. I hope it’s forever.” Mark pulled a velvet box out of his inner dress jacket pocket.

Izzie’s eyes widened looking at the box, then she looked back at him. Was he doing what she thought he was doing?

Mark maneuvered himself so that he was now on one knee as he opened the box to reveal a classically cut engagement ring. “I want us to be together forever. Isobel Stevens, will you spend the rest of your life with me? Will you marry me?” He waited for a response. Hopefully the response he wanted to hear.

Izzie nodded. As her nodding became quicker, she smiled. “Yes! Yes! Yes!”

Mark put the ring onto her ring finger, threw the velvet box onto the sand and kissed her passionately.

Izzie put her arms around his neck and kissed him back. She smiled against his lips as he whispered.

“Happy birthday Izzie.”
