" Will you marry me ? " , he asked.
"Why now ?" , she answered with a question.
" Because I love you "
She laughed " And you did not love me before ?"
"I did , but now it is different "
"Different , how ?"
"Now , you have something that belongs to me "
"Is it your heart ?"
"No , it is the key to my heart's melody "
She , with her strapless dress , standing in that freezing weather , refusing to wear his jacket , standing still without any movement ,looked at him for the first time and asked " Your heart's melody?"
He , with his tuxedo , heavy jacket and scarf around his neck , trembling , answered her :" I found out that my heart is full of melody , a happy one , but the key to this melody is you . In addition , the meaning of love has changed in my mind since I have met you "
She looked away and asked " How ?"
"At first , love for me was that crush , the need to know that person who moves something in me when I see her . After that , love was liking that girl , listening to her thoughts other than wanting to look at her beauty . And at the end , love is you , knowing that I cannot live without you in my life , because simply , you do complete me "
" I do complete you ? you sound so sure !"
"Of course , I cannot imagine my life without you …"
She took a deep breath , then said " They say love dies after marriage"
"I say that love is recreated after marriage"
"Can you recreate love ?"
"There is always a new meaning to love , a meaning that I am passionately waiting to experience it with you "
They paused , and he asked " Why are you asking all these questions ?"
After a minute of silence , she looked at the brown scarf over his neck and said " I am the one who asks the questions here, not you !"
"Please , change your mind about the jacket thing , it is freezing here "
"Is love enough ?" , she moved to the next question.
"We are different "
" We complete each other"
"I am nervous"
"I am calm"
"I love dark chocolate"
"I will be happy to eat it with you "
"But you hate it …"
"With you , it will be the sweetest thing "
"Will you change for me ?"
" I will never change for you "
"I don't want you to change, I just want you the way you are "
" I easily cry "
" I will be there , holding your hand , comforting you "
"Why now ?"
"Because I want to see you when I wake up every day , to feel your smile ,
to start my day with the blessing that we are together."
"Because I cannot wait to see our children "
He smiled and said : "A young girl , she is an angel , and a young boy , he is the funniest baby on earth"
"As if you've seen them ?!"
"I do know them "
"You seem very sure ?"
"I AM sure"
"Why me ?"
"Because I love you "
"Because you make me laugh, because I love to protect you , because….."
"You think I cannot protect myself ?"
"You can , but it is a privilege to take care of you ."
"People get married to be comfortable "
"I would love to be tired because of you "
They paused , then he spoke " Why are you trying to make me change my mind ?"
She looked at him for the second time , looked at his scarf again , and then said "You are stupid and I am crazy "
"Is this an answer?"
"No ,it is not . It is a statement ."
"What do you mean ?"
" Remember , I am the one who asks the questions."
"No , this time I will ask the question , and I need an answer …"
He looked at her eyes firmly and asked "Will you marry me?"
She smiled , took the scarf he was wearing , put it around her neck , and walked away…..
