His pledge to her:

“i will kill the spiders. i will share my fries with you when you’ve finished all yours and are still hungry. i won’t ever pop my collar. i will never be rude to your tummy- when i hear it growl and gurgle, i promise to bend down and reply respectfully. i will eat the mushrooms when we order the supreme pizza. i will kiss the papercuts. and the door-slammed finger. and the counter-bumped hip. i’ll try my hardest not to get annoyed when you whisper questions and comments during movies. i will be the big spoon. i will let you win at wrestling. sometimes. other times i will not. i will go faster. harder. i will pull when you want. and tease you when you don’t. i will send you random txts and leave you silly gifts. not always. not on schedule. just whenever i want to. whenever i think you need one. or seven. i will check your tire pressure. and remind you to take your car in. i will hold your hand. i will love you. i will love you. i will love you.”

I love the `not always, not on schedule. Just whenever I want to.’ part. This is so the thing I keep telling V. That he should ‘want’ to, he doesn’t need to. :) 
And I love the writing style. It is the one I love the most. And use. If you ever read any of my stuff you should know. Do you? Although if I want to be a writer it’s got to change. You think? Anyhow. Moving on then.
