It was their first Christmas as a couple. Claire and Peter had their share of hardships, but they eventually found their ‘happily ever after’ and they wanted to make every moment count.

It was Christmas Eve. Peter had placed the last present under their tree when Claire appeared over his shoulder, staring at the box.

“What’d you get me?” Claire asked.

“A pony,” Peter answered.

“But where will we put her?” Claire joked as she handed Peter a glass of eggnog.

“Those cookies smell delicious,” he said.

“Thanks. Wanna help me decorate them?” she asked.


They headed down the hall in the direction of the kitchen. At the threshold, Claire stopped abruptly and Peter bumped into her back, but luckily enough, he did not spill his eggnog.

“What is it?” he asked.

“Look up,” Claire said softly.

He did so and saw why she had stopped and why she asked him into the kitchen. She had hung mistletoe from the ceiling. They shared a smile and Claire leaned in to kiss the man she loved, but Peter blocked her lips with his index finger.

“Hang on,” Peter said, his finger trembling. “There’s something I want to say.”

He placed his eggnog on the table beside him and reached into his pocket, pulling out a small, black, velvet box, and got down on one knee. Claire’s jaw dropped in surprise.

Claire saw Peter’s lips move in a rehearsed monologue about their journey together and how much he loves her, but Claire didn’t him. She was so stunned.

“Will you marry me?” her ears finally opened again.

“Yes!” she exclaimed.

Peter grinned. She had never seen him so happy and she herself had never felt so happy either. Peter slid the ring onto her finger and stood up, embracing her in a passionate kiss.
