My friend and i had a couple drinks chatted to a few people and eventually made our way to the dance floor, all the while with Marsdens piercing eyes staring right through me. Mars got up and came to the floor, still looking and not talking, I had seriously had enough of this guy, i walked up to him and said " I made the first move, you decide what happens next". looking back now that was the cheesiest, most embarrassing thing ever, but I was trying to be a bad ass and it seemed to work. Mars ran after me and said something along the lines of " you cheeky little monkey who do you think you are" we both laughed and I said I was leaving , he begged me to stay or atleast give him my cell number, I started rattling off a fake number and half way through something clicked, this guy watched me all night trying to figure out a strategy, and maybe, just maybe id like to hear what he has to say, so i gave him my real one. We met up the following night and ended up kissing each other after a drink at a restaurant, it was the single most moving moment in my life. i had never been kissed like that, not ever. That Sunday we i told him I was undoubtely in love with him and he agreed, he also told me that he would marry me, come hell or high water, i would be his wife.
That year (2009) we moved in together, we stayed in a little mouse box of a flat but we were together and that's all that mattered. And that December Marsden took me away to the ocean and rode me up a mountain on horse back and got down on one knee and fulfilled his promise he had made just three days after we had met, he was making me his wife.
Marsden is truly my soul mate and I feel blessed to wake up next to him everyday of my life, I know now that the trails we faced in the beginning was only to make us stronger. The journey has been incredible and I cant wait to see what the future holds for us. Marsden makes me a better person and without him i would not know what to do with myself, as they say dont marry someone you can live with, marry someone you cannot live without.
