The urge to interrupt him before he had finished was overwhelming. I had heard it all before. He would say he was going to change, but never did. I almost had the script memorized. 
Except this time he had a twist. This time instead of empty promises, he showed me his new job title, along with the deed to a new house. It was a cute little house with a white picket fence and a tree with a rope swing in the front yard.

But it didn’t stop there. He pulled out a ring and got down on one knee.

Now check out the rest!

  1. I love this one. That first paragraph lets you know just how much everything else must have meant to her.

  2. A very nice twist. I hope that his script really has changed :)

  3. good luck to her. And good thing she didn't stop him before he finished. :) Or maybe that wasn't a good thing...
