Tantalizing Tuesday Teaser: Our day will come

Our day will come

Daniella was perfect. She was everything I had ever wanted in a woman and, as I stared across the table at her, I knew it was now or never.
Pushing my chair back I dropped to one knee, and slipped my hand into my trousers. Slowly I removed the small, velvet, box and opened it.
“I love you with all my heart, Daniella, and I want to spend the rest of my life with you,” I told her, as the whole of the restaurant stared over at us. “Will you do me the honour of becoming my wife?”
“Oh, baby, of course I will,” she replied, although as she did I could see the tears forming in her eyes.
“I hope they are tears of happiness,” I whispered, as everyone around us began cheering and clapping.
“You know this is all we will ever be able to do, don't you?” Daniella whispered, between sobs. “With me being, you know, transsexual.”
“That shouldn't matter, baby,” I told her. “We have the right to be happy just like everyone else and hopefully, one day, everyone will realize that and the law will be changed, and then we will have our special day.”
