PostSubject: Por ti, Caramella   Wed May 02, 2012 3:31 am

I had been planning this night out for a long time now. I had hoped that when Bianca had gotten out of the hospital, our lives could actually go back to normal. Then again, I really didn't know what normal was for us, but I was hoping what I had planned would change all that and we could actually find some bit of normalcy.

I parked the Jeep behind the restaurant in the parking area and quickly got out to run around and help her out of the Jeep. "Are you sure you are up to this, Caramella? We can go home and I could cook dinner for us." But she insisted she was fine and I walked with her inside the restaurant, Lombardi's, nice little Italian place in Little Italy.

I walked up to the hostess' stand, my arm wrapped around Abigail's waist. "Reservation for Cavallari," I told her. The hostess looked over her list and then up at us. "This way." I smiled, walking with Abigail over to the quiet corner booth I had reserved for us.

I slid Abigail's coat off her shoulders and handed it to the hostess. She told us a waiter would be with us shortly and left us alone. Pulling out the chair for Abigail, I smiled softly at her. "Your seat, Caramella." She sat down and I leaned down, giving her shoulder a soft kiss before taking my seat beside her. "I hope this is to your liking. I had to pull quite a few strings to get us in here tonight."

Jeff hadn't told me much about where we were going, except for dress nice. So I did that with a simple black dress that came to my knees and some ballerina flats. I left my hair down in a mess of curls and headed out of the house with him. I was exhausted and feeling especially guilty when we came up to the restaurant. I didn't deserve him.. not... after... I sighed, closing my eyes.

He must have noticed my mood because he asked me if I was truly up to this. I insisted I was fine and we headed inside. "Thank you." I told him with a soft smile. "And very much to my liking." I gave his hand a squeeze and looked down at the menu. I knew my mood seemed sour but I had my court hearing soon and I had cheated on Jeff. Safe to say I just wasn't my normally bright self. Add on my sister missing it was amazing I even managed to get out of bed. "What are you getting?" I asked, to make conversation.

"I was thinking about the chicken catatori. It sounds really good," I told her, looking over the menu. "Do you know what you'd like? Or do you know if you'd like some appetizers? The fried ravioli are good. Or even the Fonduta. It comes with these tiny slices of Italian bread." I nodded my head. "Best in the world."

"The Fonduta sounds good." I whispered, staring hard at the menu. "The babies like the sound of it.." I felt tears burning and blinked them away. "I think I'll get the Lasagna Rollata al Forno." I glanced over at Jeff, sucking back the overwhelming guilt to smile. "I really do appreciate you bringing me out. It's nice to get out and not worry..." I sighed. "Even if I still worry. It's nice. Thank you." I leaned over, taking his hand and kissing the top of it.

I smiled over at her. "There is not a thing I would not do for you, Caramella. I hate that I was not there for you that day. I should have never let you leave my hospital room. My head is still spinning over how I even thought you leaving was a good idea. I can guarantee you, I am never letting you out of my sight again." I slipped the hand she wasn't holding, inside my pocket, my hand curling around the tiny box I had in my pocket. This wouldn't take all of our problems away, but it might make things a little better.

"I don't blame you for that, Jeff." I said with a smile. "And I don't want you to blame yourself either. I'm a big girl. I did as I wanted." I glanced up at the waitress as she came up asking for our beverage orders. "Water with lemon, please." She asked if we wanted in appetizers. I decided I'd let Jeff order that and just watch him. I couldn't help but smile. I loved the way he handled himself.

I ordered our food, speaking to the waitress in Italian. She understood perfectly, although she couldn't respond as fluently in return. I was however impressed with her understanding of the language. The waitress left and I turned back to Abigail. "I want this evening to be special for us, Caramella." I pulled the box out in my hand and held it out on the table in front of us. "I have planned this for quite a while. I am actually surprised you didn't find this at home, but I suppose I am better at hiding things than I envisioned." Laughing shortly, I held the box out in front of her, waiting for her to open it.

I raised my eyebrow slightly, cracking a half smile. "I guess you are." I reached for the box, flipping it open and stopping dead, staring at the ring and then at Jeff. "Is that... is... that... Jeff," I whispered, snapping the box shut. "you don't have to do that. Seriously. I know we said we would but we can wait. It's okay." I swallowed roughly, trying to forget how beautiful the ring was. "Seriously... please don't do this just because I lied to Jackson about us!"

Shaking my head, I stood from my seat. "This has nothing to do with with Jackson, Caramella." I took the ring from the box and knelt down beside her, taking her hand in mine. "I love you, Abigail. I have from the moment I met you. We have finally come to a place that I am finally able to be with you the way I want, and this is what I want. I want you. I want you to be my wife. I want to have a family with you. I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Please, marry me."

I felt tongue tied... choked. "I..." I stared at the ring and then at Jeff. I knew this right. But why didn't it feel right? I loved him. I always had... and I always will.. but this.. it felt wrong. But right at the same time. My own head felt like a roller coaster ride. "Yes.." I told him softly, smiling. "yes, Jeff. I'll marry you." It came out so suddenly that I barely registered I said it before it was said.

I smiled brightly and slipped the ring on her finger. Standing, I pulled her gently to a stand in my arms and kissed her deeply. The people around us in the restaurant applauded and I pulled back slowly from her. "Thank you for saying yes, mi amore Caramella. Ti amo."

I smiled brightly even though tears were rolling down my cheeks. "I love you too, Jeff. So much." I smiled at the people around us and looked back at Jeff. "There's nothing I wouldn't do for you." I rubbed his face with both my hands smiling up at him. I could forget what I did. After today I'd never do it again. We'd be just the two of us. I'd never let it happen again.

"And nothing I would not do for you," I said, slowly lowering her to her feet the tiny distance I had lifted her off them. Brushing my lips across her forehead, I smiled down at her. "You have made me happier than I ever thought I could possibly be." An image of Carly flashed through my mind, and I took a soft breath. "Shall we sit back down?" I asked, laughing slightly.

"Yes, of course!" I laughed, taking a seat at the table and smiling at him, admiring my ring. "I really love this ring, Jeff. Thank you." I leaned across the table and kissed him. "Thank you for everything. I wouldn't have survived these last few months without you."

I nodded my head shortly. I knew exactly what she meant. "Same goes for me, Caramella. Grazie." I pulled her hand up to my lips, kissing her fingers around the ring softly. "Ti amo."

I felt more tears blur my vision when I thought about Jackson. I had to stop doing that. We were done. For Good. I had to deal with that. I had to stop loving him. No matter how hard it was.. or how bad it was. My heart sank when I realized that Kyle might grow up calling another woman momma. "I.. need to use the restroom. Stay here." I stood, kissing his head and walked to the bathroom. I pulled my phone out and sent a text as I sat on the couch in the bathroom crying.

I sat back in my seat as she walked away from the table. The waitress brought the drinks and the fonduta and I still sat waiting for Abigail.

My shoulders slumped as I texted him back and forth. Why was he making this difficult on me? Couldn't he see already how hard it was?
