This challenge made me think a lot and I found it slightly hard to put my thoughts onto paper:)
Today’s assignment: ‘Dark Clouds on the ( Virtual ) Horizon’ – Write a post inspired by a real-world conversation.
“ What if she says Yes? “, he said laughing.
‘It was six o’clock in the morning when he decided he didn’t have the will or the patience to stay in bed…it didn’t really matter as he was wide awake all night thinking about how it will all happen.
What is the perfect scenario?
Did they ever talk about it?
He couldn’t remember…his mind, his emotions were just a huge pile of questions with a thousand possible answers and none of them were even close to what he was looking for.
He thought maybe it would be best to do it some other time, be more prepared, do some more research and make sure he will get it right the first time…’first time’, he smiled…’it’s not like he will get a do-over, he has one chance to do this how he imagined it’.
For the first time ever he had a ‘to do’ list and he was following it to the letter…restaurant reservation – done…dozen red roses – ordered… pick up suit from dry cleaning – must do…make up a story for going out tonight – still thinking…
It wasn’t easy to keep all this hidden for months…eventually he needed to tell someone!
His best friend was…let’s say, amazed…shocked , more likely but very supportive, always saying that after all this well thought out plan, she might actually say ‘YES’ and then what…?
Well, that was the whole idea, no!?
She was his better half and he wanted to spend the rest of his life making her happy…
It was now almost seven o’clock in the evening and he was getting ready to leave the house…flowers – in hand… hair – still not happy with it… suit – just like 007… ring – almost left it on the table…
He could feel his heart wanting to leave his chest…not because he was nervous but because today could the first day of the rest of their life…
What if she says YES?’

Note from the author:
I wrote this assignment with a constant smile on my face, after all that thinking about how will I write this, I really enjoyed it:)
I hope I did capture the funny side of a sweet situation…I just remember overhearing the last sentence “What if she says yes?” and I just let my imagination fill in the blanks!
