It was the day after I had proposed to Mick and I got up early to make breakfast and get ready for a job interview, I finally had enough experience and I was going to apply for that journalism job. When Mick woke up I gave him a big kiss and set the table. It was his birthday today and I wanted to do something special.
“What you all dressed up for?” he asked.
“I have a job interview today, but I thought we could do something special before for your birthday” I said smiling.
He grinned “And what would this special present be exactly, 'cause I’d love to work up a sweat.” He said cheekily.
“A shopping trip. I thought you could do with some new threads, you dress like a blind man. So as soon as you’ve done stuffing your face get ready and well leave.” I replied whipping the cheeky grin of his face.
“Wow, I’d of never of thought this would look good on me. You have good taste” he said.
“Of course I have good taste I picked you didn’t I?” I said.
I paid for the clothes and Mick thanked me with a big sloppy wet kiss. I asked Mick if there was anything he wanted for his birthday and I’d treat him. He told me every since he was a teenager he had dreamed of learning how to mix drinks so he could work in bars and clubs.
“I’m sorry, but that job is no longer available, but there’s one job left as a newspaper girl. If you impress me and work on your writing techniques, you’ll get a promotion easy, and I’m an easy person to impress.” She said.
I was very disappointed but accepted anyway at least I would be working in the company and could work my way up. As soon as the interview finished I called my boss at the bookstore and quit my job. When I got off the phone Caroline came up to me “I’m sorry about the job thing would you like a drink there’s a bar just out the back. I agreed as I still had to wait for Mick to finish his lesson. As I drank with Caroline I found out we had a lot in common and I thought we were well on our way to becoming friends. When Mick finished I said goodbye and we went home.
“What if now I’m older you won’t want me? And how are we going to pay for the wedding without me having a job?” He questioned.
“Don’t be silly I won’t leave you now, and as for the wedding we still have your savings from selling your old apartment and I have a new job. Everything will work out fine” I reassured him.
"Was I ready for married life? Did it mean I was going to become a mother? Was I ready for a family of my own? YES!" I said to myself. "I have a man in there waiting for me who loves me and I love him, anything will be possible as long as we are together."
I rushed into the church hoping I hadn’t made him wait too long.
“How do you feel being Mr. Mick Temple?” I asked.
“It’s great and how does it feel to be my wife?” he asked.
“I’ll have to get back to you on that” I replied pulling him into another kiss, all we could do was giggle and hold onto each other.
