GBE2 prompt is to write a story from two perspectives.
“Mom, I have great news. Josh finally proposed!” Vini spoke into the phone just above a whisper to her parent’s home phone. Her mom was thrilled and her dad, not so much. He wasn’t a big Josh fan, but then again he had never really like any of her boyfriends. Josh made a big effort in the beginning to befriend Frank, but since he failed at every turn, he had given up and remained just pleasant and polite around him.
“Tell me all about it!”
“He just fell to his knee after dinner last night at the kitchen table. He looked directly into my eyes and said, ‘I love you; have loved you a very long time and I want to marry you more than anything. Will you marry me?’ and I just started crying! I didn’t even say yes, I just cried! Then he pulled out the ring. He picked out a ring all by himself! Can you believe it? It’s perfect! It’s my size and it’s beautiful and I finally said, ‘yes, of course, I love you so much.’ We stood and hugged for like 5 minutes!”
Wiping her own tears, her mom replied, “I just couldn’t be happier. He’s a good man.”
They talked a few more minutes and Vini hung the phone up and tiptoed back to their bed to cuddle with her fiancé. She had never felt more loved in her life. ♥
Answering his phone while driving to work he hears. “So how did it go?” It’s his brother Jim who is the only other human who knew he was proposing last night.
“Okay. Almost like I planned, well, the last plan I made!” Laughing he continues, “She said, ‘yes’ and really that’s all that matters.”
“Did you get on your knee?”
“Uh, well, yeah.”
“And said what?”
“Are you a girl or what? Who cares what I said? Jeezopete. I mean I asked her to marry me and she said yes. It’s all good Bro!”
“Cool. She’s cool and you need to settle down. Good choice. Later.”
“Yep, later.” They both hung up and were both perfectly satisfied with how it all went down. ♥
