I whispered in his ear to ask if he was OK with everyone knowing so soon, he said that he had wanted me to be his for forever so of course he wanted our friends to know. As they finished their drinks I ordered another round and told them we had some great news. When we were finished telling them they were all extremely happy for us, there were hugs of congratulations all round.
This morning was a little different though, I woke up feeling a little sick. I ran to the toilet and emptied the contents of my stomach, man I hate being ill. I phoned work to let them know I wasn't going to be coming in for a few days and I also called Jacob and the guys to let them know, they were all concerned and wanted to bring me soup. I had to tell them a few times that it would be best if I was just left to sleep, and that I would see the doctor. After saying goodbye to Jacob I phoned the surgery and made an appointment for in an hours time. I got showered and dressed myself in something comfy and headed to the surgery.
Jacob payed for our meals and said he wanted to show me something, we walked to the local park and sat and watched the fountain for a while, feeling the cool water splash on our skin. I ran my fingers through the water, and as I turned round there was Jacob on one knee with a gorgeous diamond in a beautiful velvet box. I was so excited that I jumped up and down screaming like a little girl, I must have looked a right fool.
Then he said those few magic words that every girl longs to hear "Lyra would you do me the honour of becoming my wife?". "Yes Yes a million times Yes." I replied. He placed the ring on my finger and I stared at it with such awe, it really was a beautiful ring. I pulled him into a hug and kissed him, I couldn't believe he was going to be my husband.
In all the excitement I almost forgot I had some news of my own, I just hoped it would be as good as his. "Jacob I have something to tell you.....I went to the doctor's to see why I was ill and it turns out that.......I'm pregnant." I blurted it out so quickly. "You're pregnant?, that's the most fantastic news ever, I'm going to be a Daddy." he replied as he picked me up and spun me round in a circle. I am so happy right now, life just couldn't get any better.
