Eric and Ruqayyah-He forgot?!

“So, how long have you guys been together…like a year or two?â€? Laila asked carelessly. She didn’t understand how much he meant to me. We have been together for two years and our anniversary is tomorrow. What do I get him? “Two!â€?I said and started to walk away and think about what I should get him. Hat…sneakers…hmm I don’t know…i need help.So i ask none other than his best friend, Louis. He said a personal letter would be okay.
Next day
As soon as I wake up, I give Eric a call.
“Good morning babyâ€?. I say “Are you excited for today?â€?There is a minor, but awkward pause. “Hellooâ€?
“Hey, sorry Ruqayyah, I was just thinkingâ€?. Did he forget? Oh my God, he forgot our anniversary.â€?About what?â€?I ask hoping that what I’m thinking isn’t true.
We talk a little and I don’t mention anything, we practically don’t talk for the rest of the day. It seems he really did forget. I grab my coat and go to see a movie with some friends.
As I opened the door to my house, “SURPRISE!â€?
He remembered!
