Training for her new job had been extremely stressful, Lilith was passionate about dragons and good at studying but she was struggling to translate all that to working at the Sanctuary. Most days she came home so frustrated and dejected, bless Oliver's heart he did what he could for her but she was stressing way too much. Lilith had been hesitant to take a vacation when she was struggling so much with work but Oliver had insisted it was exactly what she needed, she had struggled to relax when they'd first gotten here but now that a few days had passed it was way easier. They lounged at the pool for the first day and then some but she'd gotten bored as Oliver made her promise not to bring any books on the trip because it would just keep her frustrated he claimed, he was likely right about that like always. The man she loved was understand about her nature though and agreed they could visit museums so she wasn't so restless. Cabo San Lucas was beautiful for the eyes but the Ravenclaw Alumni needed beauty for her brain too. She anxiously pulled him up the stairs as they approached the museum, she was clearly excited.

Oliver was glad he'd convinced her to take a vacation. The first day and a half, he'd made her just stay by the pool. Just lounge. Nothing planned, no books, because she would have brought books for work, not books for pleasure. And even if she had brought novels or something, they probably would have been her books for work bewitched to look like novels. She was so smart like that, and it was part of why he loved her. After lunch, though, he'd agreed to go to their first museum. He also had a museum planned for tomorrow, and the next day. And the next he had a nature hike. With some massages and local muggle traditional cuisine and culture planned in, as well as other wonderful things. All to enjoy and help her relax. Oliver was a Gryffindor in school, yes, but his mother had not only been a Ravenclaw, but a muggleborn. He'd grown up experiencing holidays with all different kinds of museums and adventures. While his father made them train quidditch, Penelope had taken them to history museums, science museums, nature hikes, and Oliver Jr. had loved it. And so he was using his upbringing to his advantage. The last day, he was going to propose. Lilith didn't know, but he'd been planning this since their trip to the ring shop in Diagon Alley that day. She was pulling him up the stairs excitedly and he was laughing, walking quickly, his long legs matching her strides. "I'm hurrying, Lily. I'm excited too, I like museums."

Lilith certainly had no problems admitting Oliver was right, especially when he was. However, she preferred to be creative in showing it as opposed to just coming out and saying such a thing. He'd never develop an ego, at least he didn't dare with her, so that wasn't the reason she didn't tell him. The man knew her better than everyone or anyone else in the world, he would've figured out her tricks even if she'd tried to swap books so that was exactly why she didn't even bother trying it. It wasn't that she didn't want to relax on vacation and spend time with her boyfriend she just knew how behind she felt at work and it would be interrupted time to try and make progress on getting to where she needed to be. How much thought he'd actually put into this whole thing she didn't realize, but she'd been too wrapped up in books and the stress of work lately. That didn't excuse the oversight but she would realize it and surely let him know she appreciated him. As for the proposal even though she'd been hesitant to look at rings with him she was still going to be surprised and caught off guard. Of course she'd say yes, they were perfect together she just wasn't expecting such a thing so soon and while they were still so young. "Sorry I didn't realize I was pulling." She said, cheeks tinting light pink. She was just so exuberant knowing she was going to get a chance to learn new things today and spend time with him, it was two of her very favorite things when it came down to it. By far it wasn't her favorite thing to do with him but here in public wasn't really the place to do that. "I'm just excited. Vacation was such a good idea." She said, rolling up to her tiptoes to peck his cheek in appreciation.

Oliver smiled down at her, and chuckled. "It's okay, love, I know you are. I am too, just slow down and enjoy it. That's the fun about vacation. We don't have to rush. We've got plenty of time." She rolled up on her tiptoes to peck his cheek and he grinned, his cheeks dimpling mischievously, wrapping an arm around her slim waist and moving her into a dip with ease. She was petite and he was strong. Leaning over her, he spoke in a dashing, over-dramatic voice, "Ah, but in such a romantic place, how can I not kiss the fair maiden more thoroughly? Surely some handsome man would try to come and fight you away from me if I did not!" And he leaned down and kissed her thoroughly, putting every bit of passion and love he felt for her into the kiss. He'd made sure to lay a thorough fake trail for where they were going, to the point that at least five decoy Oliver's and Lilith's were running around the world doing fun things, and another pair in London, living their daily lives. The vultures, as Lily called them, would be furious when they collected their weeks findings and discovered them to be useless. Setting her to rights, he smiled at her, winding her arm through his, and kissing her hand softly. "Shall we, dearest apple of my eye?"

She gave Oliver a look and rolled her eyes. "Slow down? Isn't that the pot calling the kettle black?" Lilith asked him with a chuckle. She knew they had plenty of time for everything they wanted to do but that didn't make her any less excited about things, which in turn made her rush a little more than she normally did. That was funny though because she was most definitely the more relaxed one of the two, Ollie could be a bit of a hothead sometime but she didn't love him any less for it. Of course he took advantage of the moment and swept her into some grand gesture that had her heart racing. "Well we wouldn't want that now, best kiss the fair maiden eh?" She responded seriously. Luckily the man was holding her upright or she would've completely melted into the sidewalk right then and there, no matter how much he did things like this she never got used to it and to be honest she didn't want to either. Lilith had often worried that the spark between them couldn't last and what they had couldn't be real when they were younger, but years together had shown her things only got more intense between them as time went on. Thank goodness he'd had the common sense to send out decoys, it was still awful and ridiculous that they need such a thing but they'd never get peace from the vultures if they didn't. He placed her back on her feet and she sighed dreamily, something about that man made her extra mellow after he kissed her. "Lead on." She said squeezing his hand gently.

Oliver smiled down at her and laughed. "Perhaps so, my love, but I have never been one to slow down when I could full on steam ahead. Especially when I know what I want. And you have always been what I want. From the moment you stepped up to be sorted I wanted to know who the lovely girl with the sad, dark eyes was. I'm just lucky I get to know who she is better than anyone. For the rest of my life He added to himself, hopefully, but he had not yet asked. He still had to do the asking. Oliver had never been more nervous for something to do with Lilith in his life, except maybe their first date. But even that was nothing compared to this. He was terrified she would run from him. That was part of why he had so carefully planned it. Because if she did say no and run away, he needed to be able to lick his wounds and hide. When he pulled her out of the dip, her breathless look gave him a little hope that maybe she would say yes though. Taking her hand, he smiled, kissing it gently and tucking it into his arm, opening the door and walking in, his own heart beating hard. He had planned this day very thoroughly and just hoped she was going to say yes. "I just hope you are ready to teach me, my fair Ravenclaw beauty, for I know many things, but would be lost without you."

Lilith looked up at Oliver, eyes shining with love. She still couldn't believe she had caught this man and kept him, he was too spectacular for words and she knew how lucky she was. "Oh don't I know that, you're Mr. Rush into things headlong without a thought." She teased him, but it was just part of his Gryffindor nature so she understood. "You are utterly full of it, I was eleven and you were twelve but it is a cute story." She told him honestly, she didn't believe it. At that age boys still believed girls had cooties and didn't want anything to do with them, so for him to know he wanted to know her more seemed crazy. Although once the man made his mind up on something that was it for him, so perhaps it wasn't too impossible. If she had any idea the whole point of this trip was to propose to her she would've been a mess, sure they had talked about rings but she figured  it would be a long ways off before he made good on using it. She'd likely panic in the way she always does because she's the sensible one who actually takes the time to think about things. Oliver kissed her hand and she felt her cheeks tint pink, he was hell on the heart. "Flattery will get you everywhere. As for teaching you I'm not sure such a thing is possible." She teased.

Oliver squeezed her hand and grinned, it was so true, he ran into things first, but this one he was sure about. He'd been at this for long enough, looking at her with longing eyes. He'd spent his years at the Gryffindor table sitting so he could see her. "You know you wouldn't have me any other way, my cautious, colorful love." He said happily "If only you could read my mind love, then you would know it was nothing but the truth. I would look for you every time I came into the Great Hall and sit so that I could see you, hoping beyond hope that maybe, just maybe, that I would have a chance to bump into you and say hello. The day it finally happened was the third happiest day of my life. Second happiest being the day you said you'd go to Hogsmeade, and first happiest being the day you said you'd be my girlfriend." He was hoping, of course, that today would take first place, that she would agree to be his wife, but she didn't know that yet.  He smiled at her little jibe and led her on into the museum to walk through the walls of history and nature. "I am remarkably confident that if anyone can teach me, it will be you. After all, you taught me what it was to fall in love, did you not? You captured me so thoroughly that I haven't been able to look away since the moment you sat on that stool almost seven years ago." He smiled at her, sincerity in ever crinkle around his twinkling eyes.
