Jennifer’s POV

I was finally outside again. It wasn’t sunny, but it wasn’t raining and that’s all I can ask for on this rainy peninsula. When Jake and I reached the beach I flopped down on my back in the sand. “I love you.” He murmured. Then he realized what he said. “I mean I’ll back off if you don’t want me. I’ll be a friend. I’ll be-”

I cut him off in the middle of his rambling sentence by pressing my finger gently against his lips and then I kissed him and he kissed me back. When we broke off we were both panting and I pressed my forehead against his. “I love you too.” And it was true. I really truly did.

***

We spent two or three hours sitting in the sand. We talked and kissed and laughed and just generally acted relieved to be alive and with each other. “I love you.” I whispered for the hundred millionth time that day as we sat in companionable silence.

He turned and smiled at me. “I love you too. More than you could know.” I smiled back at him and wiggled myself into his lap leaning back against his chest as he wrapped his arms around me and rested his chin lightly on the top of my head.

He looked at me with concern as I flinched away from his left arm. “Does it still hurt?” He asked worriedly.

“Just a little bit.” I lied. In reality it was throbbing painfully and I knew I really should be getting home and to bed.

“Come on. You look tired anyways.” And I was I realized. The hours on the beach, no matter how little we actually did, had sapped my energy. I scowled lightly as he stood up and pulled me to my feet.

We walked back to the house in a comfortable silence. My mom was sitting on the porch with dad when we walked up. “Did you two have fun?” My mom asked glancing at the arms we had wound around each others waist.

“Yeah, I want to go back out tomorrow. You have no idea how boring sitting in a bed for weeks is.” I said dramatically.

She laughed and I smiled back. In a moment of spontaneity I hugged my mom and whispered in her ear. “I love you mommy.” She wrapped her arms around me and whispered back.

“I’m just glad I still have my daughter and that she is happy now.” I pulled back and walked to the stairs with Jake.

We sat down together on the bed. He seemed nervous about something and was fidgety. “Just spit it out already.” I finally said exasperated.

He sighed before starting. “Well you see your recent flirt with death told me just how much I love you. It almost killed me to know that you would have been resting and calm and probably not gotten the infection if I hadn’t been stupid and gotten hurt. It really showed me how much you mean to me and that I couldn’t live without you.” He got down on one knee in front of me and I knew exactly what was coming. “So Jenny, will you marry me?”

Jacob’s POV

I was going to ask Jenny to marry me. I decided that during one of the long periods of her exhausted sleeps. I knew it was all really fast, but I also knew that I would never hurt her and that I would always be there for her. So during the last days of the infection I asked Claire to sit with Jenny while I went and got the ring.

I had already asked both Quil and Claire if it was ok and they agreed whole heartedly. Claire had helped me pick out the ring online. It was perfect. There was a diamond in the center and then increasingly small sapphires around the edges of the gold band. Then I just had to wait for my opportunity.

When we went out to the beach I had almost asked her then, but decided to wait for a bit longer. I continued to wait as she hugged her mom and then asked her when we got up to her room. I said my little speech about how much she meant to me and that I loved her. And I finished with, “So Jenny, will you marry me?”
