Never Unintentional – By: DorkExpress

"Are you ready?" Jonathan asked me from the living room.

I rolled my eyes, "Yeah, yeah, I'm going, goodness, you'd think I was hours late when I'm not even late at all."

"Well, I was just eager to see you, so I said to myself, 'Jonathan, since you're not doing anything productive, you should go pick up Marie already.' and I said, why, I'm the smartest man alive!" He grinned at me from the couch where he was lazily sitting.

I smiled at him. He looked so at ease in my small apartment. Like he belonged there. "So, where are you taking me?"

"I'm taking you to a new restaurant they just opened not to far from here. Well... it's more like a little hut with live music, but I saw it and thought you'd like to try it out."

"Well, don't I have a considerate boyfriend?"

"Yes, you do." He said and got up from the couch to wrap me in his arms.

After Jonathan 's impromptu but heartfelt confession we decided to give ourselves a shot. We spent the night together, kissing, talking and enjoying each other's presence. We slept in each-others arms - and I mean, really sleep. Jonathan's hands stayed in decent places and I felt my heart swell with love at his consideration. How many guys do that now in days? Even grown men?

Sam was surprised but not against us - as I feared - and looked at her brother knowingly. And to my surprise, she threatened him. Do I have an awesome and amazing friend or what? Yes, I do. She was already telling everyone I was her sister-in-law when me and Joe were barely together for about a month.

Joe and I drove to the little spot he saw and when we walked in there I fell in love with that place. It was small, cozy and very homey. We sat down near a fire place and I took in my surroundings. It was certainly... cute. The chairs were miss matched, but went together at the same time. The chandelier above the center of the dance floor was beautiful and big. The stage was as wide as my living room and that was quite big. Everything looked like it was placed there for maximum enhancement. I loved it.

I was listening to a girl singing beautifully and playing the guitar. Her voice was soft and melodic... that song... I think I've heard it before... I think...

"Marie..."

Summer turned to winter

And the snow it turned to rain

"Yes?"

And the rain turned into tears upon your face

I hardly recognized the girl you are today

And god I hope it's not too late

"I love you," he said, his voice was strong, his face soft and his eyes were shining.

'Cause you are not alone

I'm always there with you

And we'll get lost together

I smiled, not being able to hide it and not wanting to. "I love you, too."

Till the light comes pouring through
'Cause when you feel like you're done

And the darkness has won
Babe, you're not lost

"I know. And I won't ever take it for granted..."

When your worlds crashing down

And you can't bear the thought

I said, babe, you're not lost

"Neither will I."

Life can show no mercy

It can tear your soul apart

"But there's something I need to tell you." His voice was serious; his eyes didn't betray anything... And my heart clenched. Expecting the worse.

It can make you feel like you've gone crazy

But you're not

What if he doesn't think we're worth the time? What if he doesn't want to be with me anymore? What if...

Things have seem to changed

There's one thing that's still the same

He stood right in front of me, and my heart was caught in my throat... but he didn't walk out, instead, he looked at me with his deep golden brown eyes and kneeled on one knee.

"Marie, you are in my fist memories, you are in my past, you're in my pictures and in my heart, but that isn't enough, I want to have you forever. To wake up with you in my arms and not be worried of the yesterday or the future but the now. I love you with everything I have. And well, I want to know if you would be my wife. I know it's not going to be an easy thing to do from day to day, but I think it would be worth it if it was you by my side. Your eyes I looked into everyday to give me strength. Will you be with me Marie? Forever, because I don't think anything less would be sufficient."

I looked at him, his eyes on me. This beautiful man wanted me. Me; Emily Marie De Lioncourt. His best friend. He wanted me and he was all I ever wanted.

In my heart you have remained

And we can fly fly fly away

"Yes, yes, yes, yes... I will, I do! I love you Jonathan!" I said leaning down and capturing his lips and tangling his hair in between my fingers. Tears slipping from my eyes that I didn't even know about. I was just so happy. Jonathan got up and led me to the empty dance floor and we swayed to the melancholy voice that the young girl was producing. It was perfect. It gave me a sense of loss, of hope, of love.

'Cause you are not alone

And I am there with you

And we'll get lost together

Till the light comes pouring through

'Cause when you feel like you're done

And the darkness has won

Babe, you're not lost

When the worlds crashing down

And you can not bear the cross

I said, baby, you're not lost

"I think this is our song." Joe's voice whispered.

I smiled, it was true. The words were true and passionate. "I think you're right." I said lowly, and kissed his neck.

Who said there weren't HappilyEverAfters and PrinceCharmings in real life? I sure as heck got mine.

A/N: Well, that's a wrap! But, before that I want to say that the song is from Michael Buble and I do not own the beautiful song LOST, but I wish I did. I actually had a hard time writing this chapter... but I think it was because I had the wrong songs on. With this song, everything just came to me more smoothly. There are a few quirks, but, I just wanted to finish it, you might say.

So what did you think?

I may not gotten many reviews, but I feel accomplished my just finishing this story. Short as it may be. Anyway, I'll write the epilogue by the end of the week.
