“It was the final day of our trip to Bali — we had booked a villa which he had (secretly) requested to be filled with flowers. At midnight, as we floated amongst the petals in the candle-lit private pool he told me he loved me. I wrapped myself around him and kissed him. I held him tighter than I ever had before… but said nothing.
