He (my dad) gave me a present and told me not to open it. And then a week later wondered if I had.

"Do you want me to open it?" I asked.

I stepped away from the computer to fix up dinner. And afterwards came back to his reply that I could. And so I did.

Inside a bigger box was a small box. And inside that box, a velvet-y one still. I opened it up to see a necklace with three sparkly golden hearts.  I took it out of the box and held it up. And I don't know why I thought to turn it over, but I did.

Inscribed on the back, it read:

I love you.

And that is all I ever needed or wanted.

I immediately teared up.

God knows words mean a lot to me.
