So, this idea sort of just came to me after I watched the sisterhood of the traveling pants 2. Yes I know this is based on the movie, but I've never read the books so, this is the only basis I have. Sorry! Anyway, it takes place after the girls return home from their spontaneous trip to Greece. And it is told from Bridget's POV.

It was December when I got his letter. I mean, Eric and I had been in touch on and off since we met at soccer camp. I don't know why, but that day when I came home and saw his letter sitting on the table, I hoped that it wouldn't be just a standard "how are you?" letter.

But I'm getting ahead of myself. It started two weeks prior. I was driving home for Christmas break when my cell rang. It was Carmen. I flipped it open long enough for her to ask me how far away from home I was. At that point I was about five minutes away. When I told her this, she told me that the sisterhood needed to have an emergency meeting. And that the girls would be at my place in ten.

I pulled into the driveway, to see my dad's car gone. I knew he'd be working, so I wasn't worried. I quickly pulled my stuff out of the car and ran to dump it in my room. By the time I got down stairs, Tibby and Lena were waiting on the porch. When I joined them, we started talking at the same time. It turned out that we all wanted to know what was going on. As it turns out, Carmen had called us all to an emergency meeting.

We met Carmen halfway down the front walk. We were all dying of curiosity. She wouldn't say anything until we were all seated on the swing on my front porch. Once we sat down, Lena started squealing. Tibby and I looked at her like she was crazy. She didn't say anything, she just reached for Carmen's left hand and held it out so it was in the light. It was then that we say the diamond ring on her finger. Tibby and I looked at each other and then back at Carmen's hand. The next thing I knew, we were all jumping and squealing and had the biggest goofiest smiles on our faces.

When we were all done, I grabbed my purse and started to pull Carmen towards my car. As I walked, I heard Lena ask where we were going. I stopped to face them and said that we needed to celebrate. So the four of us piled into my car and I drove to our favorite coffee house. Once we were seated, and had ordered, I told Carmen to give us the details.

"Ian paid me a visit before I came home. I was quite surprised because he was supposed to be on a plane to England. He then told me that there was something that he had to do before he want home to England. I was very confused at the time because i didn't know what it had to do with me. Ian smiled at that and then got up off of his chair, walked around the table and knelt in front of me. He held is hand out in front of me and when I looked, I saw this ring sitting in the palm of his hand. He smiled and said quoted his favorite Shakespeare. He said

"O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright!
It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night
Like a rich jewel in an Ethiope's ear;
Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear!
So shows a snowy dove trooping with crows,
As yonder lady o'er her fellows shows.
The measure done, I'll watch her place of stand,
And, touching hers, make blessed my rude hand.
Did my heart love till now? forswear it, sight!
For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night."

"What could I say after that? He then told me that Romeo knew the first second he saw Juliet, he wanted no other. He said it was the same for him. He told me that he would be the happiest, most blessed man in the world if I would marry him. I guess I've always been a sucker for Shakespeare, . . . Of course I said yes. I mean, I'd been hoping that he'd ask, but I never guessed it would be so soon."

She then told us that he had not gone home, but that he was going to be joining us for Christmas. Of course, we were excited I mean, we'd met Ian numerous times, but this was the first time we'd all be together. Since dad and I had the biggest house, everybody was coming to our house. I was very excited. I dropped the girls off that their respective houses and we planned to go shopping for supplies for Christmas the next week. Dad wasn't home when I got there, so I assumed he was working late. I was exhausted and knew that he'd understand if I went to bed and didn't wait up for him. I was asleep before my head hit my pillow.
