“Come on, we’re going to be late.” David said, helping Laura into the car and running to the driver seat.
“Where are we going?” Laura asked as David peeled out of the parking lot.
“You’ll see, it’s a surprise.” Laura folded her arms across her chest. She hates surprises and it was something David knew perfectly well.
“Not funny.” Playfully, she punched him in the arm.
As they ascended, the trees began to thin. At the edge of the forest, David pulled into a pullout. “Come on!” He said excitingly. Laura followed and when he finally stopped, she knew what he meant by “late”. It was the most beautiful sunset she has ever seen. “Beautiful, isn’t it?” Laura nodded. David took a step back and got down on one knee, on his palm was a black box. “Laura, I can’t think of spending the rest of my life with anyone but you. Will you…”
“Yes!” Laura wanted to scream but it seemed she’d lost her ability to speak. Shakily, she held out her left hand.
