A/N: This one’s a triple drabble.
It was February 29th at last, Carol had been waiting for this day for months. She’d been half afraid that Bikky would beat her to it on Valentine’s Day, but they’d been at opposite ends of the country then so they’d had to make do with sending cards and gifts, and talking via skype.
Now though, Carol had flown all the way to California to visit Bikky at college for a very important reason and nothing was going to stop her. She caught up to her boyfriend as he was leaving his last class of the day. He was with a group of his friends and classmates, all talking and laughing together; when he spotted her his face lit up.
“Carol! What are you doing here?” He made his way over to her.
“I needed to see you.”
Bikky frowned, suddenly worried. “Is everything alright?”
“Of course it is, silly. There’s just something I wanted to ask you, but this is the only day I can do it. I’m not waiting another four years.” She went down on one knee in front of him. “Victor Goldman Maclean, will you marry me?”
“Dammit, Carol, I was going to ask you on your birthday! I already bought the ring and everything!”
“Is that a yes?”
“Course it is! There’s never been anyone else for me, and there never will be! Guess we’d better go fetch your ring, you’re going to need it!” Grinning all over his face, Bikky pulled his new fiancée to her feet and kissed her, to the accompaniment of cheers and wolf-whistles from all his friends, but he barely heard them.
Taking Carol’s hand, he pulled her towards his dorm. To hell with his homework assignments, tonight he and Carol were going to be celebrating their engagement in style!
