When I Fell In Love With YouSomeone asked a question about falling in love. "What is that thing that made you fall in love?" I thought about it for a while and decided to answer. I knew readily when I fell in love with KingofSwords.
I joked a little in my answer but I was dead serious about when I fell in love with him.
His sword was bigger than anybody's. (Slightly joking).
Actually the thing that made me fall in love was knowing that he was into me for the long term.
I remember on one of our first few dates (it was our second date), I threw up all over him. I was very sick and he wanted to go out. I tried to decline but I thought maybe a little fresh air would be OK. King can be very persuasive. He's a very good looking man. Very suave.
We went to dinner and afterwards out dancing. I was already weak and sick. I told King that I needed to go outside and get some fresh air. We went outside and the evening air hit me and up came dinner. All over him.
He was an absolute sweetheart about it.
I thought he would never call me again. Here it is our second date and I've puked an expensive dinner all over his very expensive suit.
The next day, he had flowers, a card and a get well balloon delivered to my home.
Later on that evening he showed up at my home with vegetable soup (I'm a vegetarian so no chicken soup). I realized if a guy can get over you puking all over his suit then he must be worth considering.
I remember how horrible I felt and he just went into the bathroom got a washcloth, soaked it in cold water and dotted my forehead. I looked at him and could see that he really and truly wasn't going anywhere. It was as if he was supposed to be there. It is hard to explain but it felt so natural that he would be there. I just looked at him. I fell in love with him right at that moment.
He said he wasn't going to leave until I fell asleep. He was by my side for hours. He fed me soup, rubbed my feet, dotted my forehead, stroked my hair, gave me tissues. He even went to the drug store and picked up a presc
He wanted to make sure I was safe and after I fell asleep he went across the street to my neighbor who had a key to my home and asked if she would lock the top lock on my front door so that I wouldn't have to get out of bed to lock it.
I woke up the next morning, still sick but much better than I was the night before. I reflected on how he took care of me. I looked on my nightstand and there was a single red rose and a little note saying that he would wait to hear from me because he didn't want to call and wake me up. He said that I should call him when I get up and he would bring me lunch if I felt up to eating something. I just smiled. I knew I loved him.
