John lied to Emily. He wasn't at work this afternoon or with friends. Guilt was written on his face. Emily picked up the table lamp and flung it at him. It smashed on the floor never to be mended.
John ducked with his hands covering his head. He wasn't expecting that. Tears streamed down Emily's face. Her world had just collapsed and her heart ripped out. John crawled over slowly and took Emily's hand holding a small red box. John opened it to reveal a diamond ring.
“Will you marry me?” He asked.
Emily already knew how to answer him.
