Episode 32: You’re The Only One


From the moment we landed in Tahiti, I knew this was a special trip and I was going to have the time of my life.  Terry was being his usual sweet self but he seemed kind of distracted.  I figured he was probably having thoughts of work and worrying about the business while he was away. 

“Terry, is everything okay with work?” I asked.

“Yeah Baby, why?” he asked me.

“Well, you just seem a little distant and at tad bit farther away from me than I want you to be,” I explained “I just thought maybe something happened at work before we left and you’re not telling me.”

“Dang, I apologize Syrah.  I just have a few things on my mind and I’m trying to figure out how to make some things happen.  I don’t mean to be that way.  Plus, we’re on vacation and you know what? I promise I will make it up to you.  No more thinking about work or anything else.  I’m going to be thinking about you and us and that’s it.  As a matter of fact, I’m going to turn off this phone right now and you and I are going to enjoy each other.”

By now, he had pulled me close to him as we stood out on the balcony that had the beachside view of the Tahitian waters.  As he kissed me I knew he meant what he said and we were connected again. 

We decided to get dressed up for dinner and Terry had some gifts for me.  He had a beautiful “little black dress” he insisted I wore tonight and some stunning silver shoes by Jimmy Choo.  I had never bought a pair of those high prices shoes ever in my life and I don’t think I would have either.  Somehow this man knew me and the shoes were just what I liked, just a little more expensive.  I was so excited about the shoes I didn’t even see when he pulled out three jewelry boxes that contained earrings, with matching necklace and bracelet.  Oh my God, diamonds were everywhere.  I could have slapped myself. 

“What?  You don’t like them?” Terry asked.

“Terry, Baby, I love them! And I love you!  This is so sweet!” I said as I hugged him close and tight. 

“You didn’t have to get me all of this stuff.  I am so happy and thank you Baby,” I said.

“You are definitley welcome and I am happy because you like it and Syrah I love you too Baby.  I love you so much that I want you to always know it and I’m not going to ever let you forget it,” Terry said.

Terry looked so handsome.  He had a on a tux I picked out for him earlier and damn, he was fine!  ‘You did good for yourself, Syrah, I thought as I smiled while this wonderful man put the necklace around my neck and bracelet on my arm.  I won’t lie.  He put the earrings in my ears too.  Now that was another first for me.  Having a man put my diamond earrings in my ears was just sweet to me.

Dinner was delicious and I was drinking chardonnay, smiling, laughing, and kissing the man I loved who made me feel beautiful, loved, sexy, and wanted.  When dessert came, I told Terry I couldn’t eat another drop but he insisted I try it and take it with me if I couldn’t eat it.  I agreed so he ordered it.  When the dessert came, the waiter lifted the top off the dish and nothing was there but a sparking, beautiful, diamond ring.  I looked at Terry and I sobered up quick.  (It’s amazing how you can get sober all of a sudden.) 

“Terry,” I said as I shook my head and smiled.

“Baby, that’s for you.  And I want to ask you something,” he said.

The restaurant got so quiet and all eyes were on me and Terry, who was now on one knee on my left side holding the ring up to my finger.  Everything went in slow motion and I even remember seeing an older white woman with lovely, curly red hair, looking at me and smiling with tears in her eyes. 

“Syrah, you’re the only one I want.  You’re the only one I love.  I only want you and I need you in my life.  You’re my best friend.  I love you.  Syrah, Baby, will you marry me?”

“Yes, Terry.  Yes I’ll marry you,” I said and he slipped the brilliant ring on my finger which made a perfect fit and matched the other diamonds I wore.

I cried and held onto him and the restaurant began to play one of my favorite songs by Eric Benet called “You’re The Only One”.  It seemed like the heavens had opened up to me and I was floating on a cloud.  I kissed him and hugged him and kissed him some more.  That was a moment I’ll never forget for as long as I live. 

That night Terry knew that he was certainly the only one I want and need in my life too.
