I posted this up to Facebook and Twitter, but I guess it won’t be an “official” Saturday Snippet until there’s a blog post. 😉 It’s only 6pm here in California, but heck with it.
It’s already Saturday somewhere, right? 😀 😀
Jeremiah took my hand in his and laid a kiss on one knuckle. “You know that I love you, right?”
He was staring at me intently, as if trying to gauge my expression. I lifted my arms around his neck, tilting my head to one side. “Of course I do.” It was a silly question, but I wasn’t about to tell him that.
“I’m not one for big showy gestures, and I tend to get it wrong when it comes to the romance department.”
“I’d have to disagree with that assessment,” I added, making a big deal of looking around the room and all our guests, but he wasn’t finished.
“I can’t imagine ever loving anyone as much as I love you, and there’s nobody on this planet I’d rather spend my life with.”
As Jeremiah slowly sank down to one knee and reached inside his pocket, I clapped my hands over my mouth. I couldn’t tell if the guests had grown quiet, or if I’d just tuned them out. All I saw was the man I loved kneeling before me, opening a small white velvet box.
“Lucy Delacourt,” Jeremiah said, presenting me with the largest diamond ring I’d seen in my life, “will you do me the honor of becoming my wife?”
