Hey There…..

My Dear Rhys,
I know that things have been difficult…. what with our crazy schedules and your nosey friends ( Just Kidding! ๐Ÿ˜› ) and we have not been able to really spend as much time with each other as we would like. But that has made me cherish the smaller moments with you all the more ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyways I know that I have an exam in like 24 hrs and I should be studying but I just felt like telling you how I feel. And since my singing will wake the dead in protest, I simply post this song for you ! I swear my being such a lazy ass had nothing to do with going for the copy – paste way out ….. ๐Ÿ˜›

Love
Nick

P.S.- Please don’t scold me for wasting my study time over this post ….. I wrote it when I was taking a break !!

Asking out….

Finally the last in series of “How Nick n Rhys got together” . Since i had promised that i will tell how i asked out Nick, so here it goes…

Planning any event requires a few things. Like-

1. An appropriate environment/venue (it was Nick’s room in this case..:) )

2. To create an ambiance suitable to the event. (It was created by the background music i played )

3. To catch the person’s interest in the event. (I did that very well by blindfolding my Nick.. )

4. A special unique component. (It was dance in our case since he loves to dance.. lol .. ๐Ÿ˜› )

5. And finally the moment of asking him out (For this, i wrote a poem for him)

As Nick had given me a warning that ‘proposal for being his boyfriend be good enough, or else he will reject it..lol.. ๐Ÿ˜› ‘. So i started planning it in late December 2011.

I knew that i will going to ask Nick out in his room only. Next was to find some music. I found a song appropriate for the evening after searching for ย 2-3 long hours, all thanks to you-tube. It was “Can’t take my eyes off you- By Lady Antebellum”

I decided to write a poem for Nick, although i m a poet and have never ever written anything before. Still i had to make ย it good, so i wrote a small poem for him. It took me around 1-2 hours for the poem, and subsequent changes in the poem took a lot of time for me.

Next was to create Nick’s interest into it and adding a special component to my proposal, so as to make it unique. I thought of stimulating all his senses except vision. ๐Ÿ˜› So i decided to blindfold him and then make him dance on the song i had selected. Then by the end of song, i would place him at ย a spot where a small placard would be kept saying “I Love You..” At the same time, ย i would ask him to open his eyes when i will be on my knees.. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Just at that moment i had decided to recite my poem to him..

But the reality is usually different from what we plan.. A few issues cropped up at the last moment, like i couldn’t find paint and any placard to write “i love you”. So instead i had to use the only available form of color i had ย -SHOE POLISH.. ๐Ÿ˜€ ย I got an old cardboard from somewhere and wrote my 3 word message on it by a shoe polish. Following this, my preparation was done for the evening.

3rd January 2012- It was evening when i entered Nick’s room, where he was just lazying around in his bed. I asked him to be patient with me while i blindfolded him and my sweet Nick did as i said. Next, i placed the cardboard with my message at its spot, and played the music on laptop. I pulled Nick swiftly out of bed and into my arms, moving our feet together slowly to the tunes of song. I did a little bit of ballet, whatever i could manage to.. lol.. ๐Ÿ˜› (I am a very bad dancer, unlike my dancer boyfy Nick..:) ). By the end of song and the ballet dance, i had deliberately brought Nick to that very spot where my cardboard was placed. I went down on my knees and asked him to open his eyes.

He saw me on my knees and also that placard/cardboard. I started reciting my poem. At first, he was just surprised and couldn’t speak a word till i finished my poem. (Till date i don’t know whether he was surprised ’cause of the preparation or the fact that i used a shoe polish ย to write “i love you” on a waste cardboard..lol. ๐Ÿ˜› ).

By the end when i had finished my poem, i waited for his reply. He just pulled me up towards himself and softly kissed me.. And said “Yes, my darling, I will be your BOYFRIEND.. ๐Ÿ™‚ ”

And that’s how Nick and Rhys got together as boyfriends… ๐Ÿ™‚

Love you Nick..

Rhys
