PJ had dinner arrangements at Prog's new bar, his first bar was not the most romantic place in the world, but his second bar was in the torch of the Statue of Liberty and had a wonderful view of the city, unstable for humans, ha! What a great ploy.
Prog had made it so that the only ones there that night were PJ and Jessie, and him of course but he WAS the waiter, chef, and owner. By the time they got there the whole place was illuminated with candle light and a fancy meal had been placed on their table. PJ had asked Prog to make an extra special meal for the occasion. It had all of Jessie's favorite "date" foods and a classy bottle of champaign. PJ held Jessie's seat for her to sit down and quickly went to the bathroom to wash up.
In the bathroom he splashed some water on his face. "Okay PJ, you know the drill, you rehearsed it, about twenty times at home" he said looking at the still quivering image of himself in the mirror, he had never been more nervous in his life.
Prog, who had been PJ's best friend for years quickly followed the Lep officer into the bathroom. "Hey man are you alright?" he said patting his pal on the back.
"Yeah I'm fine, just nervous, that's all" he said smiling at the Dwarf. "How do I look"
The Dwarf examined him and decided to push his normal wisecracks to the side for now. "I'd marry yah" he said smiling
PJ chuckled and took out the ring one last time and looked at it. Closing the box and placing it in his pocket PJ took a deep breath and walked out to the table. His first act when he got there was to take his glass and gulp in all down in one sip. "Alrighty then... Jessie..." he began looking at her face. "do you uh, like the view" he said wimping out a bit. He didn't even pay attention to her answer, he was too busy yelling at himself in his head. "I have to go to the bathroom... again" he said rushing off, again. Running into the bathroom, he slammed the door hitting Prog, who was listening intently. "Help me..." he said more nervous then ever before.
Prog shook his friend a bit. "You have faced trolls in head on battles, and your worried about THIS"
"Almost like a poorly written sitcom huh"
"pretty much, now let me see the ring" Prog said holding out his hand.
PJ handed him the ring box. Prog examined the ring. "Oooh very pretty, how much did it cost you?"
PJ doing the numbers in his head came out with a rough estimate, which Prog ignored. "Alright then here's how you do it, first you get on one knee" he said as he got on one knee. "Then you talk about your feelings, blah-di-blah-blah, then you simple open the box and hold it out to her saying, will you marry me." he said opening the box and holding it out to PJ. There was a brief moment of silence before PJ finally took the ring from Prog, and Prog got back up on his feet. "Ready buddy" said Prog dusting off PJ's shoulders
PJ shook his head no before he finally placed the ring in his pocket and walked out to Jessie.
Sitting opposite of her PJ took a deep breath and began.
"You probably have been wondering why I've been running around most of our evening thus far, the answer is simple, I'm nervous, more then I have been in years. More then when I had to charge a troll, more then when I had to shoot down my brother, more then anything I have ever faced before. The reason for this nervous behavior, is because I'm happy. Happiest I have ever been in my life, every moment I spend with you is a moment of pure joy for me. I love you Jessie, everyone knows it, hell even Foaly realizes how much I love you." PJ said standing up. He then grabbed both of her hands. "I love you more then anything, I have for the years we have been dating, and I want to be with you everyday for the rest of our lives. I have been wondering how I would ask this question to you for weeks now, and the more I play them out the more I realize there is one true way I can do it. So I might as well just ask it, before Prog has a heart attack in the bathroom." getting down on one Knee PJ pulled out the ring and held it up to her. "Jessie, will you marry me?"
There's a flaw in the system, as usual
I actualy look like HARRY POTTER!!!
