My Knight in Shining Armour!
Posted 29 June 2010 - 01:34 PM
My FI and I met in prison; yes, in prison. I arrived at Minnesota Correctional Facility in October of 2006 for my 6 week training class to become an officer. During the fourth week of instruction, we had a class on self defense; this class was taught by no other than my handsome, now fiancee.
** I have to admit that I noticed him right away, being how good he looked in those windpants. He says he noticed me too; but there were only tow females in the class, so who wouldn't! We went through the proceedures on how to handcuff offenders and I began to tease my handcuffing partner on what she would have done if an offender grabbed her hand when she was cuffing him; this is where the "Macho Man" stepped in; he grabbed onto my wrist from behind and pushed my hand, palm up, towards my lower back. Unknown to him, I had 3 fractured bones in my wrist from a horseback riding incident, and my wrist made a loud cracking noise and I fell to the floor. A day later he saw the result of his "instruction", as my wrist was very swollen and a large bruise had appeared on the top of my hand.
** After a year and a half went by in a blink of an eye and we filled it with wonderful memories of being together, unbeknown to me, he began planning his proposal. He first asked both of my parents for their permission to have my hand in marriage. Also, knowing the importance of Rogue in my life, he knew that he wanted to include him in this meaningful occasion. He went into great detail devising a plan with the owner of the stable where we board. They created a story not only to get me out to the barn and assist with some chores, but also to bring the video camera so that a video could be filmed and put on the barn website to promote winter riding; all of these things I agreed to do.
** On December 5th, I went out to the barn and got our boys ready for that winter riding video; it was a beautiful, crisp winter day and the sun was just starting to set. With the camera taping, up the hill we rode, holding hands and laughing as we came into a clearer view. We stopped at the top of the hill and he began to get off of his horse; absolutely clueless, I exclaimed to him quietly â€œWhat are you doing?! Sheâ€™s still filming!â€ He walked valiantly around the front of his horse, stepped up to Rogue and I, got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. I, speechless and in tears, breathlessly nodded my head yes! I knew at that moment, that I had finally found my knight in shining armor.
