“Come on, Rob! Dance with me!”

The petite brunette in a yellow dress laughed and twirled in the sunlight. Romantic music whispered the words Rob wanted to say to Daisy. “I love you.” But he couldn’t figure out how or when to say those magical words. He had never said them to anyone before, not even his parents.

But as he looked at Daisy trying so hard to get him to dance with her, he knew that she was the one his heart waited to find. How could he let her dance alone in a dress like that, and in front of so many people? This was their best friends’ wedding, for crying out loud!

Rob finally embraced his beautiful girlfriend. This was the first time he felt attractive in a suit. And having Daisy by his side made him feel like the luckiest man on the dance floor.

“Well, look at that. I finally got you to dance at a wedding,” Daisy giggled. “You clean up nice.”

“Thank you. Brett did a good job picking out the groomsmen’s suits,” Rob laughed. “You look gorgeous, Daisy. How did I get so lucky?”

“You and I have good matchmakers.”

Rob closed his eyes, pulled Daisy into his chest, and stroked her long wavy locks. Her flowery perfume awakened all his senses.

“Yes, we do! I think their shared gift is what brought them together. And now all the couples they matched up seem to be getting married. Maybe that’s why we’ve been getting invited to so many weddings lately.”

Daisy enjoyed listening to Rob’s heartbeat. But she enjoyed his deep voice even more. This time, however, there was a sadness to his voice that concerned her. Pulling her head off his chest and looking up at him, she pressed her hand to his cheek.

“I know how you feel about weddings,” she said. “And I’m sorry if this is too much for you.”

“No, it’s not. The divorce between my parents doesn’t mean the same will happen to me. I have you, and that’s the only thing that matters. You’re the most important person in my life.”
