“I always wanted an antique ring setting,” continued Hannah, “but I guess I didn’t consider the donor!”
“What did your fortune cookie say,” Mary asked? “Perhaps it said that a vintage diamond engagement ring would be in your future!”
“Well,” she continued, “it wasn’t that specific. Do you think we should venture out to have a postprandial drink? Maybe we will meet our princes.”
“Or our frogs!”

“Think Prince Charming is waiting for you?” he grinned.
