He Proposed, On A Gondola!

It was no surprise that we were getting married. In fact, we decided to get married since last October, I remember we were sitting on the sofa in the living room, he said to me, casually, 'why don't we get married'. I thought he was joking and didn't take it very seriously. Then the next day, his whole family knew! Then I realised, wait a minute, is it really happening? 

Then we started planning, well, more of discussing about an engagement trip. At first, we wanted to go to Paris, but then, his close friend proposed to his girlfriend in Paris, therefore he wanted to go somewhere different. 

I knew this Venice trip, he was going to propose to me. But I wasn't 100% sure. Does he even have a ring? I asked myself. The first day of our stay, he suggested we get on a gondola after dinner. Then that night was freezing cold and I was only wearing a dress, and my heels were killing me as they were super uncomfortable. I suggested that we do it during the day time the next day. So here it comes, the next day, we had a lovely walk about at the square, then we got on the gondola. It was the most beautiful experience I have ever had in my entire life. It was so peaceful, beautiful and the weather was gorgeous. You could hear nothing but the water. It seemed so surreal. I sort of knew that he was going to do it, and I suddenly became a bit nervous. Then the driver said to us, we have just reached the centre of Venice. I saw him got down on one knee, holding a ring, he said 'You know that I love you, and I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you marry me?' I just started crying! People from another boat near us started clapping their hands and cheer for us. I just felt I was the happiest girl in the whole world.
