It was easy to see the confusion on her face. Her mind was reeling as she considered the proposal. Wasn’t this vintage diamond engagement ring what she always wanted? Wasn’t this the outcome of all her hopes and dreams? Could this man be the one?
Big flakes of snow stuck to their bare heads. Their shoulders were dusted with white.
Even though the street outside the theater was teeming with people, they were alone. Time stopped. And it was quiet.
Neon lights created eerie patterns on her face and the antique diamond engagement ring radiated a warm glow.
Breathlessly, he awaited her answer. It seemed as if his life was in her hands.
As she regarded the antique diamond ring, thoughts raced around her head in dizzying speed.
“I only know him for a few months.”
“I’ve never met his family.”
“Who is he, really?”
“Is this the person I’m meant to be with for the rest of my life?”
He couldn’t read her expression and his heart was ringing in his ears. Was something wrong? For him, she was the alpha and omega, the beginning and end, the source of all things good and light in life, the future mother of his children. He couldn’t consider anything else.
