How He Asked

We went into the city for his birthday with two of his friends. We first went to the wax museum and then to dinner at Junior’s. The night ended with is four ice skating at Rockefeller Center and I was so excited to finally ice skate!! The last 10 min everybody got off the ice and it was just us 4 left on the ice. The song Keep Holding On by Avril Lavigne started playing and I just wanted to get off the ice because my feet were killing me but he just kept saying trust me I asked the people who worked here if I can skate one more lap with my girlfriend. We stopped skating and I fell on top of him, he pulled a ring box out of his pocket and asked me to marry and I was so surprised and had no idea this was happening.
