Canon is Need For Speed. What just happened?

No, seriously, what just happened?

You pick a storyline for me to follow and it ends up being the one where I win the Race of Champions? Where I wind up in the Nations Cup semifinals? Maybe you better start playing the lottery because you - we - are really lucky.

I'm incredibly humbled to represent my country and my sport in the way I have. I didn't expect any of this when I signed up. But I'm honored that I was able to have this shot, and the only way it could have been better was if my boyfriend could have seen it.

Which is what matters now. My work is done and I'm exhausted and I just want to spend time with the man I love. I want to see how being apart has affected us and have that reunion he said we were in for. That's what is worth writing now - how my career will change my relationship and me having to figure out these challenges I've never had before. We learned from last season that I can win all the races and it doesn't mean anything if nobody is there.

So if you really want to end this well, just find me Connor and a pizza. Because I'd trade the trophy for him in a heartbeat.

Definitely an offer that is always on the table.

Definitely up for it.

And I will tell you all about it.

How life is. Awards are nice but having someone's love is a whole lot better.

Well I won't let that happen again.

I'll get you cake and some presents. Of course I guess none will be able to top the best one.

I would not ruin a perfectly good cake like that.

See to me that is awkward. How are you meant to drop down to a knee if you are waiting for the person to even find the ring? Clearly you cannot enjoy your dessert because you need to be ready at any moment. Sounds too stressful instead of romantic.

Okay not big but something memorable.

I like that in the heat of the moment type proposal as well as the nicely planned out romantic night out.

I missed out on getting you to help me get out of it.

You know me I'll plan something for us. Though the simple just spending time with you is always the best part.

I know and we will make it work. Trust me I am not letting you go.

Can we not have a crash wedding. That is preferred.

I like that plan very much. You know, if your father does not kill me for it.
