Fanfic: To My Valentine

Chapter 5: Candlelight

Micki's eyes widened as she surveyed the scene in front of her.

Ryan had led her to the second floor where there was a small table, set formally, with crystal and china sparkling in the candlelight.

The candles burned all around the table, the glow from the flames dancing on the walls and bouncing off of the large windows.

Through the windows, the water shimmered in the moonlight.

And just to the side of the table sat a large picnic basket, overflowing with food and drinks.

Micki's eyes filled with tears as she turned to face Ryan, who was, by now, grinning wildly, "Oh, Ryan, it's so beautiful...but how...?"

"Ahh, I'm friends with the owner, Mike." He said casually, waving his hand modestly.

Ryan walked to the table, took one of the roses from the table, and handed it to her along with a small box, "Happy Valentine's Day, my angel."

Micki threw her arms around him and pulled him close. She had never felt so loved or so cherished in her entire life.

"I love you, Ryan."

He smiled, holding her tight, "I love you, too, Micki. So...are you going to open it?" he asked excitedly.

She nodded, with a grin, then stopped, "But...your present...it's still at home."

He shook his head, still grinning, "Being here with you, spending the whole day together, those are my presents, and I couldn't ask for anything better."

Micki, by now, was on the verge of tears and her shaking hands worked to unwrap her gift.

Inside were a sparkling pair of art glass earrings that Ryan had made her a few weeks before. They were the most beautiful things that Micki had ever seen and the fact that Ryan had made them especially for her made them something that she cherished.

She removed the earrings she was wearing, putting these on, and the old ones in the box, then hugged him again, "This is wonderful, Ryan! Thank you so much!"

He kissed her lightly, his lips warm against hers, "You're welcome! Come on, let's eat! This salt-air makes me hungry!"

"You're always hungry!"

He pulled out her chair for her, and after she was seated, he laid out the food, dishes of curried eggplant, kabobs of steak, chicken, shrimp, and vegetables, polenta, and a spinach-cheese pie. "I wasn't quite sure what you would want to drink with this - I brought a red wine, a white wine, champagne, Perrier, and milk - in case something is spicier than I remember."

Micki shook her head, "I can't believe you were able to plan all of this without me finding out."

He laughed, "Yeah, and it wasn't easy. You are one nosy woman. I had to get Jack to keep you busy on more than one occasion."

"Well it is unbelievable. Thank you, Ryan, this means so much to me."

She smiled as he took her hand, "Happy Valentine's Day, Micki."

Micki's small hand squeezed Ryan's hand and she leaned in to kiss him, "Happy Valentine's Day, Ryan."
