Anonymous: Talia and Russell are so adorable together!
Thank you! :)
"I never imagined getting engaged in my pajamas," Talia giggled as Russell slipped a ring on her finger.
"I had something bigger planned, but you just looked so perfect just now, I couldn’t wait."
Talia rubbed her eyes and sat up as he turned the sketchbook around. When she finally opened them, she gasped at the message that she saw written there.
"Russell, I -"
"NO! don’t say anything yet. I have a speech planned out, and if you don’t let me say it all, it’ll probably strain our relationship beyond repair," he said with a glint of humor in his eye. He put the sketchbook down and knelt before her.
"Talia Davis, you are the girl of my dreams - literally. I never thought for one second that I’d ever get the chance to be here, with you, in my underwear, much less asking you to marry me. I love you with everything I am, and I want to show you that I will keep loving you until the day I die. Will you marry me?"
"Of course I will, you big idiot!"
Talia awoke to sunlight streaming through her new bedroom window. She started to sit up when Russell instructed her not to move.
"What are you doing?" she ask groggily.
He smiled. “I’m sketching you.”
"Because you’re beautiful."
Talia couldn’t help but smile. “Can I see?”
"Just let me finish… and… there!" Russell put his pencil down, apparently satisfied with his work. He turned the paper around for his girlfriend to see.
After college, Russell and Talia moved to a home in Appaloosa Plains, where Talia had found a job at the local research center.
"What do we do know that we’ve graduated?"
You two better not get up to any hanky-panky in that there photobooth…
Not that they’ve even woohoo’d once. After her near-first time with Ricky, Talia says she won’t sleep with Russell until there’s a ring on her finger.
I’m not sure that’s how you eat… or did the herbs go to your head?
