Today was that day…. . Holy shit today was the day! Lightning Streak paced around the bathroom, left and right. He was nervous… okay scratch that, he was very nervous. And why? Because today was the day! It was the day!

Fire Streak already did this four weeks ago.. Now it was his turn. His turn to do the same thing his brother did four weeks ago..

Today was Surprise's birthday. It is currently nine in the morning and Surprise doesn't wake till nine-thirty.. So he had thirty more minutes. He planned something very special for her.

Yesterday, they booked a room in a very, very luxurious hotel. They were gonna spend the whole morning and afternoon just the two of them together and at night, their friends would gather and they would party.

The Hotel was way more luxurious than Lightning had seen in the pictures. Their room was one of the biggest. Not too big like the other rooms, but it was big for both of them. The room was called the Couple Suite, it was meant for couples.

Once you enter the room, there's a hallway with three ways. The left, right and front. To the right, was a queen mattress across with two night stands on each side. There were no doors or anything to enter the room, it was just open. There was this button that would roll open and a wooden wall would roll down and a projector would appear. Next to the bed was a full glass wall with two, wide, glass doors. And lastly, there was a drawer right next to where the projector was.

To the left of the room was a door which led to a bathroom. It was a rectangular shape. The bath tub was at the left, sink in the center and toilet at the right.

To the left of the hallway was the Living Room, Kitchen and mini Dining Room. The kitchen filled the whole left area of the room. Right next to it was a dining table for four. The table was marble with wooden, white feet. The chairs were very comfy. It was soft with a cream color cushion to sit on.

The Living room had a giant L couch with a marble coffee table and a giant TV across it. And right next to it was a glass wall with two, wide, glass doors, leading to the balcony.

And when you enter from the hallway and go straight to the front, it will lead to both ways, the Room and Living Room.

The balcony outside was big. There was a huge swimming pool at the left and a little area with a campfire with a few couches surrounding it.

Lightning placed his arms on the sink and took a deep breath and exhaled, looking at himself in the mirror. He was wearing a white suit, his hair was done and he brushed his teeth.. Now all he needed was the birthday girl. "I can do this!" he confidently said. He took another deep breath and opened the door.

His eyes landed on Surprise, who was thankfully still sleeping. He sighed in relief and walked over to her.

"Okay, this is it. Just wake her up, and do the plan!" he said to himself before he tapped her shoulder. "Surprise, babe, wake up!" he shook her shoulder. Surprise slowly woke up and yawned as she rolled upwards.

"Hey Lightning.." she said, rubbing her eyes.

"Guess what day it is today?"

"Oh right.. My birthday!" She exclaimed.

"That's right!" He kissed her cheek and hugged her. "Happy birthday, baby!"

"Thanks.." she giggled.

He took her hand and got her out of bed. "Come on!" He exclaimed.

"Woah, wait! Where are we going?" she asked as he dragged her to the closet.

"I have a surprise, and I need you to close your eyes!" He took a blindfold and wrapped it around her eyes. She didn't ask any questions except giggling.

He took her outside to the balcony and took a deep breath. The balcony was already decorated just how he wanted it to be.

There was a tiny table with the first picture he and Surprise took as a couple. Next to the frame were five packs of cupcakes with different colors and styles in all of them. There were two packs of blue and yellow balloons at the left and right of the table.

The area was surrounded by roses and candles, making a straight pathway from the door to the table.

Lightning took a deep breath and took her hand and guided her outside. “Come on! Just follow me, and mind your steps.”

“Okay..” she giggled even more, “what’s this about?”

“It’s a surprise!” Once Lightning was where he wanted her to be, he let go of her arms and moved her, facing the campfire area and facing him. “Okay, now stay here!”


Lightning immediately ran back in and went to the wardrobe, opening the top drawer. He inhaled as he saw the blue, navy box. This was it, now was the time. There was no going back… “Just do it… like what your brother did. She’ll say yes… she’ll say yes… just do it, Lightning! Be a man and do it to her! If your brother did it… then you can do it too..” he whispered to himself. He took the box and exhaled.

He walked back outside and stood in front of Surprise. “Okay babe… now you can open your eyes!” Surprise immediately took her blind off. She gasped and placed her hands on her mouth as she looked at her surroundings. She looked left and noticed the roses and candles on the ground, she looked right and saw the table, frame, cupcakes and balloons. What was all this?

Her heart melted as she looked in front of her, Lightning Streak. He was wearing a beautiful white suit that matches him so well, his hair was nice and done, combed to the back. He looked so tall, dark and handsome.

“Lightning… thank you so much..” she thanked.

“It’s not over yet..” he took her arms out of her mouth and held onto it both as he kneeled down. She gasped. Butterflies coming to her stomach as fast as lightning. She wasn’t going to believe it. It couldn’t be.

“Surprise, baby… where do I even begin? We’ve been dating for three years now, and I’m so grateful for you to be in my life. These past three years have been amazing, forget about the gloomy days.. You were always there for me, like I was there for you.. I’m gonna be honest here, Surprise, I don’t really know what to say…” he lightly chuckled. “So… will you marry me?” He took the box out of his pockets and opened it, and revealed a beautiful, diamond ring. Surprise gasped and placed her arms on her mouth and lightly cried.

“Lightning… I.. I.. I,” she stuttered. She was so shocked she couldn’t even talk. She didn’t even think about Lightning giving her a surprise. She loved him, they have been together for three years and now she was here, on her balcony, in front of her boyfriend…. That didn’t seem right though. Boyfriend? Lightning was her boyfriend? Well, if she says no then yes her boyfriend. But… she doesn’t want to call him her boyfriend after seeing this. There’s something else to call him than ‘boyfriend’. So, there was really only one option left... “Yes!” she cried in tears of happiness as Lightning smiled widely.

He took the ring and put it on her finger. Surprise immediately hugged him and cried on his shoulder. He sighed in relief, hugging her back with a smile. He did it. He finally did it. Surprise was no longer his girlfriend, but his new fiancée. He was just so glad everything turned exactly the way he wanted. “I love you, Surprise. And happy birthday.”

“I… love you too..” she managed to say in between her cries.

After a minute, Surprise let go of Lightning Streak and looked at him up and down again. He noticed and smirked.

“Like it?” he asked.

She giggled and nodded, “Yeah, fits really well on you.”

“I got this at a very expensive price..” he whispered.

Surprise rolled her eyes and looked at her ring.

“You like the ring?” he asked.

“Yeah, it’s really pretty,” she answered. “I did not expect to get proposed today.”

“Well.. surprise,” he made a heart shape with his hands. She giggled and looked at her right. Looking at the photo frame of her and Lightning. In the frame, Lightning’s position was kissing Surprise’s cheeks while she smiled.

“This was our first photo..” Surprise took the frame to get a closer look.

“Three years ago…" he sighed while the memories flowed inside of him. He and Surprise had been friends for about two years since college. Both of them got together and became friends by their other friend, Fleetfoot. As time went on, they slowly developed feelings for one another. Especially on the day where they were forced to be locked up in a room together by Fleetfoot, Misty Fly and Soarin. Both of them were stuck in Lightning's room while all of their friends were having a sleepover at his and his brother's house. At first it was very awkward but what really made them develop more feelings was when they watched a movie together. Lightning had a TV in his room so both of them decided to watch a movie and slowly fall asleep. "I mean that wasn’t our first photo together but that was our first photo being together as a couple than friends,” Lightning said.

Surprise placed the frame down and looked around her and smiled, “Thanks Lightning.. Best birthday ever.” She hugged him again.

He returned the hug, “Anything for you.. I can give you anything. I have everything you would want.”

She broke the hug and looked at him with a smirk, “Even your sperms?”

“Uhh…” he took a step back and nervously chuckled while looking left and right, “let’s get married first shall we?”

She giggled, “Sure, I wasn’t planning on wanting them anyways.”

“I’ll give you anything you want except for my sperm,” he smiled.

“Be cute for me..” she challenged.

“Uhh… are you talking to the right person? I think you’re talking about Fire Streak, Soarin and Wave Chill..” he nervously laughed. “You know I can’t be cute.” he slightly pouted.

“It’s okay, you already are doing it. Just be cuter,” she giggled.

“Uh….” he quickly put his hand at the back of his legs, acting to find something from his back pocket. “Hold on..” he then smiled cutely and took his hand out, making a heart shape with his fingers, then made another heart shape with both of his hands, bent down so he could be the same height as Surprise and pretended to eat the heart. “Mwah!”

Surprise puffed her cheeks out and laughed, “EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeee…. That was so adorable.” she laughed harder.

He shrugged, “I tried. I saw Fire Streak do it so yeah.."

Surprise giggled and hugged him tightly. "Thanks.." she whispered.

"Anything for you.." he whispered back. He looked down, looking at Surprise and smiled. He was hugging his future wife, it made him feel so giddy. It felt so magical. He can't believe he even proposed to her, he thought he was never able to pull that off, but here he was, hugging with his fiancée.

After all they have been through from the beginning of being friends back at college, to now. Never in a million years he thought he would get married, nobody really liked him for who he was, they just looked at his looks. But now here he was, hugging Surprise, his fiancée, his future wife, his lover.

He felt complete, he felt like he accomplished something he never knew he could. It was like a great achievement he made that made him so proud.

"Wonder what's next…" Lightning Streak asked himself. He didn't know, but right now, he just wanna be in Surprise's arms.
