Ritzi and Her Man

This is a tale of love that ends with the correct punctuation mark.

(This piece is connected to previous readings: 1. Allan is a Boy 2. Allan is the Man 3. Ritzi is the Girl)

Like a knight in soft white armor, Allan is standing still on one side. His cheeks are miles apart. One date in his calendar is beginning to make history. An outdoor ceremony is fulfilling a childhood prophecy.

Ritzi paces towards the knight. Her steps are snail and her heartbeats are marathon. One date in her calendar is beginning to make history. An outdoor ceremony is materializing a front desk fantasy.

Today is just the perfect day. She stares at his eyes and she sees they’re melting. He stares at her eyes and he sees the future. She steals a sighting around. She feels so Buckingham. She is Kate Middleton about to exchange vows with her William prince. Ah, the feeling of royalty in front of her man. Like every successful love story written, they make it past the climax and this – this ceremony – is the best denouement in the making.

Jerry was her first. They did not make it. Allan became her dream. They did not make it, at first. Ritzi was his imaginary first. He could not make it. He got engaged to someone else. Well, perhaps fairytale does not work for an HR man and a night shift receptionist. End of conflicts. Destiny then sets in.

By his gentle hands, Allan reaches for Ritzi’s face. They make an intimate fence with each pressed against her cheeks. Ah, the perfect dorsum…it’s still there. Ritzi’s emotions are overflowing. Standing too close to him, even the word happiness is an understatement. 

Yes, I do. Lips are locked.

It is a room. It is pitch dark but it doesn’t take an eye to see her. It is a scented room. It is pitch dark but it doesn’t take a hand to feel him. Tonight is the glory of believing in and giving chance to destiny. She scents Giorgio Armani and he scents excitement.

He starts touching her. The rest is blockbuster.
