They had a schedule. There was somewhere they had to go and if they didn’t leave within the hour they were going to be late. While she had everything already picked out, and said she’d be ready in ‘less than 5 minutes’, he knew it would take a lot longer than that.
Standing at the bottom of the stairwell, he waited and let his thoughts drift back to the night before. She had been so surprised when he gave her the ring. He shook his head and rolled his eyes before making his way up and to the room.
It’s amazing the time that it’s taken
For you to come out here
I don’t know what you do in there
Only so many ways you can change
How light will hit your face
Or how you can fix your hair
He entered the dressing room quietly, watching what she was doing. She didn’t know that he was there so he was treated to the small quips of her mannerisms. The way she leaned towards the mirror, the fuss she made over her dress to make sure it fell the right way; and even how she kept patting at her hair to ensure each strand was where it needed to be.
You only got two eyes, two lips, so why
It shouldn’t really take long at all
But when you finally smile cause it’s just right
Damn, you look beautiful
“Can you see the future in that thing yet?” he joked, pushing off of his stance and walking towards her at the closet. His eyes didn’t move from her. He rather liked watching her skin flush.
“It’s just new. I can look at it if I want,” she quipped at him with a beautiful grin; her eyes following him in the mirror.
She was doing it again. With just a smile she was re-writing the evening plans, even if she didn’t know it. So what if she took longer than needed to get ready? When she looked at him like that, nothing else really mattered.
Now, I know it’s time I realize
I will be spending half my life, yeah
With my back up against the door
Cause you take forever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever
But you’re always worth waiting for . . . (Lyrics from ‘Forever’ by Andy Grammer)
