The  sun rose  to indicate the start of the day but Ray had been up a few hours beforehand as he ticked off the lists of camping equipment and supplies  from the tent right down to  S'mores but a part of him wondered if the last bit  was a good day the chief had leant him  two sets of fishing equipment  as he hopes he recalled Clara had been fishing before but he was happy to remember   Clara wasn’t a fussy eater so he packed whatever he could that was easy to cook by the campfire as he finished  each box he  placed them by the door  even though  the thought of spending the weekend with Clara made him happy he  was worried  if Clara would like the spot  but it was a late Valentines gift due to  he was at the firehouse on shift on the day  even though  the gifts  arrived he wanted to do something special  he took out  one of Claras delicious valentines cookies  he slowly ate as he took out  a  fake rose   it was the only thing he could get but  on the other hand he thought  it will last forever .

!0.45 came and went before Ray realised as  he opened the door  taking the beginning of the  bags down  to  a  Red land rover placing them in the boot as he  made several trips up and down the steps to his apartment as he  took one final look making sure he had everything  before closing the door for the last time till Monday afternoon as he placed the  food in the back as the boot was closed his stomach growled as he realised with all his organizing he had forgotten to eat  as he walked around to the driver’s side he  took his seat as he  tapped through the sat nav  for taking away drive through  as  a Mcdonald's  bleeped up  he  closed his door and starting the engine he set  off  following the directions  the sat nav  directed  as he  reached the line  it grew to a snails speed as he  pulled out  his cell pressing the name  Clara ( very cute GF)  he thought to himself if Clara saw that he would turn redder than the primary colour red  as he text 

 Hey Clara, 

 About 15 minutes away from you   just forgot to have breakfast  this morning so picking up Mcdonalds  would you like anything  


Ray x

The cue slowly went down as he reached the tannoy “ hi can I have two chicken burgers and two galaxy Mc flurries and Fanta please “ the tannoy said the price as he drove up paying for the items as he saw them on the console he headed towards Clara’s home. Ray smiled as he passed the spot where he parked the first time  he met Clara  and  he didn’t expect how things turned  out  he slowed as he turned onto her drive  as he slowed to a stop in the spot he normally parked as  he opened the door  getting out as he took the Mc Donalds items placing it on the driver’s side as he  reached behind  lifting the waterproof satchels placing them under his arm as he picked up the items on his  seat as he picked them up and closed the door as he walked across the driveway stopping  in front off  the door  as he thought about  how he was going to knock as he looked at the  Fanta and meals  in his right hand and Mc flurries in the left  so he  decided to knock  with his foot gently,

Even though Clara had suggested it, she didn't really believe he'd want to marry her. But the way he blushed, and how the campfire rose in flames, she knew she was right. "Oh my goodness, I'm right aren't I?" She was flabbergasted. Clara listened to his words as they rolled off his tongue they went straight through her veins to her heart where they would be nestled there forever. She was speeches as he guided her to the shore, her eyes never leaving him. Even though she had so much to say, so much to ask, she couldn't find her words, so she let him guide her. 

Clara wasn't sure what he meant but this was the perfect spot. She didn't really care if he didn't have a ring, this was her first serious relationship and she loved him with her whole heart, he was her soulmate, so when he knelt to the ground and presented her a hoop big enough to go around her finger, she slipped her hand in his, knelt to the ground beside him and nodded her head like crazy, "of course, I'll marry you," With the make shift ring in placed she pulled him into a hug, her head tucking itself in the crock of his neck, against his skin, she whispered; "I love you with everything I have, Ray, no one could ever compare, you're my soulmate, and that light you think came from me was always inside of you, just waiting to be let out, all it needed was a little nourishment. I can't believe you'd want me to be your wife, but I'm honored" she pulled back lightly and kissed the gentle spot behind his ear. "This was perfect by the way, alone here with you in the forest, by the water, I'm  one lucky girl to be marrying her best friend,"

I love you too with every ember of my body” he smiled gently as he held her not letting go for a few minutes before he let go as he smiled“ you know what will end the evening perfectly “he waited a few minutes before responding” Scores I think the term is” i believe “his mind was blank he never recalled camping for fun it was always camping to survive undisrupted sleep for watch he gently rose to his feet as he offered his hand to Clara“ Clara there are few things you need to know about me about my past and why I don't talk about it.

When I was younger my path I was on wasn't a good one I never went what I learnt was from my dads friends and Barney    got me books to read and taught me to write but as I was in Criminal gang I was taught to break lots pick pocket and still”  Ray looked down as he gently squeezed Clara's hand“ When's Samuel brought me to Evermore my life changed completely I had a transfer new life and the job that I love and anew family“ he smiled as he looked to Clara“ and a beautiful fiancée and a life I never thought I would have 

Ray smiled as he got up“ I love you Miss Carter and I hope you found your Steven Rogers” he smiled as he hoped  she got the Avengers reference as he stroked her cheek“  I do believe the smores are in the blue container and how about I make the bar's famous hot chocolates I've been promising“ he smiled as he watched her for a minute appreciating how lucky he was 

Clara nodded eagerly. " smores sound wonderful," she agreed, the smile on her face never leaving her. The initial shock of his proposal still hung heavy in the air, she never really saw herself finding the same kind of romance her parents had, a best friend kind, the one you could tell all of your secrets too. And now she had it. "Ray," she put her hand on his, "you don't have to talk about this if you don't feel comfortable, I would love to know more about you, but I don't expect you too"

Apparently having gained the confidence to talk about it, she listened as he spoke about the past that still haunted him, she'd already known it hadn't been a perfect childhood and she always suspected it had hurt him deeply, it didn't sound like Ray had had a mother, and for that she mourned for him. The hand she had been using to touch his, she slipped inbetween his fingers and gave a good squeeze. "There's not much you can say that could change my mind about you, I love you Ray, your past is just that, your past, I know it was terrible but if it weren't for that past and Samuel you wouldn't be the man I know and love."

"Oh, I'm sure you're my captain," He stood up and she followed along. "I'll help, I can't wait to see how you make these hot chocolates, I'm gonna get out my notebook to make notes," she replied reaching for her bag next to the man of her dreams.

-Fast forward-

Ray awoke early like he always did when camping he turned to watch Cara asleep in her sleeping bag as he thought about how lucky a guy he was to find a woman as beautiful and caring as Cara was as he quietly got out of his sleeping bag he began to look at the equipment they had used and quietly began to pack away the items they would not need for breakfast taking the large box he began to make his short trek back to the car each movement is silence as he thought about things arriving quicker then he thought back at the car tossing the box in before making his way back to Clara and breakfast stopping every few steps as he felt he wasn't alone 

Ray's memory took his mind back to when he first was in the woods and the sounds of the footsteps, knowing it was the step of a coyote heavy but quick as he kept moving he heard the tracks follow him before he stopped and began to scan the surroundings for the lone predator as he allowed a fireball to form in his hand as he kept scanning his surroundings before launching the fireball into the ground encircling himself the whimper of the coyote soon followed as it ran off as soon as the fire ignited the flame evaporated with a flick of Ray's wrist as e began the route back to camp but at a slightly quicker pace sitting on rock just in front of the camp as he smiled looking back to see that Cara wasn't awake fully as he walked back to where the fire once roared proudly as he clicked his fingers before starting to prepare breakfast.

Leaving the breakfast to cook slowly before turning to the lake, Ray took off his shirt as he walked towards the lake before diving into the lake before resurfacing looking up at the sky as he floated his breath echoing through his ears under the water as the current gently span his body around enjoying the cold water against his skin before flipping on to his front as he began to swim to the other end of the lake stopping a few minutes to catch his breath before making his way back to camp at a gentle pace before arriving back at the camps shore he sat on the shallow shore line as he looked at the shore line.

It didn't feel like a dream at first, not with the lovely field in front of her; dahlias and baby's breath everywhere, the shades were breathtaking and though she most certainly could not remember having ever seen a field of wild flowers like this before it just seemed so natural she couldn't believe it would have been planted.

Music played in the background, a soft harp, and as she took it all in, blue skies , a slight breeze, an arch in the middle of the field, and Ray dressed in a casual suit, the colour of cream, smiling at her, she fianlly figured out that it was her wedding. 

Even dream Clara knew it couldn't be real, though the delicate lace gown was stunning enough to keep her placed in her soft sleep. Waking up slowly had been the goal so she could play out the monatge of romance in her head but when she peeked open an eye and didn't see Ray she sat up straight.

Clara sat in her sleeping bag, looking around, before she stood up, the fire was still going,  the sun was rising and since she was always good at guessing the time she gathered it was almost six in the morning. Though she wanted to leave camp and look for Ray she just knew it wouldn't  be a good idea, so she'd wait here like a good finance should, we'll she'd wait for a while at least.

Ray rose to the smell of breakfast and turned his head to see it almost done. He got up and started walking back to the camp, admiring the nearly perfect blue sky. As he knelt at the fire to start dishing up the breakfast, he noticed that Clara's sleeping bag was moved differently. As he looked up, he smiled and said, “Good morning. I hope you're hungry.” Ray took the plates and cutlery and walked over to Clara, placing them in front of her as he sat beside her. “I hope you slept well and are excited about our trip to the bookstore on the way back. I've already taken most of the items back to the truck.”Ray rose to the smell of breakfast and turned his head to see it almost done.

He looked down at breakfast" I hope you like crispy bacon; I can never cook it right ", he laughs. "I leave it too long" he gently kissed her cheek as  he couldn't believe Clara was now his fiancee” I do think he had some first editions arrive a few days ago” He smiled as he began to eat some of his scrabbled eggs " we can come here anytime you want to unwind you are the only other person knows of this place” he turned looking at Clara's beauty before realising he was still wet and shirtless and her sleeve was wet as he let his body warm up he touched the sleep he got wet allowing it to dry quickly as he rummaged his bag for a shirt
