Title: "Flower Boy" Author: Unknown
After years of being treated badly and even in some cases beaten by other men, I finally came across the man of my dreams, although there was a slight glitch.
After 3 years of spending 24/7 with this man the discussion of proposal and marriage came about, and I have never seen a man fidget so much. The dreaded, he didn't want to settle down and have children and be married I thought.
The months went on, I had sacrificed my childhood dream for this man, no marriage, I accepted and realized at least I was with the man I love.
The doorbell rang, some flowers delivered to me, my boyfriend was most probably guilty for leaving me on my own while he went away on a business trip. The most unusual bunch of flowers to be delivered, Magnolias.
The day went on and the next one came, still alone. You would of thought my boyfriend would have spent the run up to my birthday party with me rather than away for work!
The doorbell, again, almost the same time as yesterday! Can't a girl get any peace? Wow!! Flowers again! I think someone must've been feeling VERY guilty indeed, Aster flowers. What was he playing at? Such strange flowers to deliver, although he knew I loved flowers and my garden.
The days went on and almost on the dot everyday flowers would be delivered, the next on Wednesday were white Roses, then Thursday were red Roses.
Friday had come, as predicted now the doorbell rang. This time a Yucca plant! If only I could of phoned my boyfriend for him to explain these mad antics of his! No chance of talking to him while he was away, the antics went on!
Saturday, Mallow flowers and Sunday, my birthday! I got... a bunch of Eucalyptus flowers. Now imagine the mild disappointed, my birthday and I receive a clump of Eucalyptus flowers and leaves!
The phone rang, 'Hi babe, happy birthday! Look Im sorry but I wont be able to make it tonight I have to stay here they cant work without me! Im so sorry Ill make it up to you tomorrow!' ' But Steve you said you'd leave me, who will take me now, I cant turn up to my party on my own!' 'I phoned your dad, he said he'd take you, that ok?'
Yeah my dad taking me to my 30th birthday bash! Whats with all the flowers Hun, all that work made you go crazy?'
' I got to go babe, ring you later, love you!'
' But.....' charming that's all I get out of him on my birthday!
It was time for my party I had spent hours getting ready and had done my hair just how Steve, my boyfriend, loved it. I was so sad he wouldn't be there to see it!
Dad was at the door and ready to escort me and Mum to my party. We pulled up and there were loads of cars! Friends must come with age! I linked Dad's arm and walked into the hall, hired out at the Hilton in the city! The staff had done it up really nice, I hadn't requested all this. The lights were all out, no doubt I'd have people jumping out and shouting 'surprise' not much of a surprise if I organize it. Dad walked me through first, being a Gentleman, the lights went on and there he was my darling Steve on a stage with all my friends and family staring at us! I looked up behind him and there were huge posters with pictures and letters on! They spelt.
... which spells MARRY ME ...
Oh! I had to look at him for verification, but he wasn't on stage by the time it had all sunk in he was right in front of me, down on one knee and said, "Wwill you do the honor of marrying me?" Now what do you think I said, well maybe this will help.
I have now been married to Steve for four years and have a son with him. I don't think I've ever been happier, and surprisingly, neither has he!
