TITLE: The Yellow Rose
By Victoria Garcia


It was a gorgeous summer day, when Allie and Noah went on their date. It was the first time they had seen each other in months. Allie had to go to New York, while Noah stayed in Connecticut. Noah loved Allie more than he thought he could love anyone.

The sun was shining and the birds were singing, as they sat by the small lake. It was like their own secret getaway, only the two of them knew about. While Allie was looking the other way, Noah reached behind him and pulled out a gorgeous yellow rose. Yellow roses were Allie’s favorite flower. As she turned to face him, he saw her eyes sparkle from the sunlight, and couldn’t help thinking how beautiful she truly was.

As he gave her the flower he said, “I know how much you love yellow roses, okay basically anything yellow, and you think they are the most gorgeous things in the world but I have to tell you they aren’t…”

Allie looked at him like he was crazy, He continued, “You are. I love you Allie, I always have. These past few months have been torture. I don’t ever want to be away from you for that long ever again.”

“Noah, that is the sweetest thing anyone has ever said, and I love you too.”

With all that said, Noah leaned in and kissed her he knew that he wanted to be with her forever and had to think of a way to ask her to be his wife. A week passed and he had been trying to decide on a ring, when one day he walked past an old antique shop and looked in the window and saw a one of a kind canary diamond wedding ring. In that instant he knew he had found the ring and it was time to propose. After waiting a few days to make some final arrangements, he was ready to ask Allie to be his wife.

Later that afternoon, a limo pulled up in front of Allie’s house, when she saw it she turned to Noah and said, “Noah, what is that? Do you know why its here?”

“Yep”, he said slyly.

“What’s going on?”

“Don’t ask questions Allie. You’ll ruin the surprise”, He said with a wink.

She didn’t know what was going on but she was too excited to ask. Noah gave her a blindfold to put on so she couldn’t see anything until they got there.

The car had finally slowed to a stop when Allie asked, “Are we here Noah? Can I take this thing off yet?”

“Be patient. Good things come to those who wait”, he said with a slight chuckle.

Allie couldn’t help but laugh, remembering that she had said that so many times before. Noah helped Allie out of the car, and walk to the spot. Still having no idea where she was Allie was getting anxious.

“Come on Noah, now can I take it off now?”

“Almost sweetie just a few more steps.”

A few moments later they were there. “ Alright Miss impatient, you can take the blindfold off.”

Allie yanked the blindfold off and found herself in shock. Noah had brought her to their favorite spot in the world, the lake. As she looked around she became misty eyed. There were yellow roses all around a picnic blanket, on the picnic blanket was her favorite foods and drink, there were even candles. Everywhere she looked there were yellow butterflies, all of her favorites in one spot.

“Oh Noah, this is all so amazing,” she said as she hugged him tight, “What did I do to deserve this? Thank you! Thank you!”

Noah smiled to himself, “Allie you’re amazing and beautiful and smart. Ever since the first day I met you, I knew you were different than every other girl. I love you Allie, I always have and I always will.”

Allie was now close to tears, but Noah looked her in the eyes, got down on one knee and said, “Allie, Will you marry me?” as he said that he pulled out the gorgeous antique canary diamond wedding ring.

A small tear slid down Allie’s check, and a huge smile spread across her face. “Yes, of course I will marry you.” She ran into his arms, and kissed him.

He knelt to the ground and picked up a yellow rose and said, “Don’t you ever forget this yellow rose is nothing compared to you.”
