Silent Witness

Salted breeze combed my hair as my bare soles sink in sun-bathed sand. With eyes closed, my ears are delighted by the singing pelicans.

Then suddenly, a strong force hugged me from the back. Chills ran through me as his lips moved closer. He whispered “Do you remember?”

Slowly I turned, looked into his full-of-love familiar eyes, and said the words I uttered to him a year ago.

I was speechless when he get down on his knees. After a minute no less, in front of armless Neptune and a full blue moon, I said “I do, of course, yes.”

  1. Nice take. Actually a really great place for a proposal. Many people noticed armless Neptune. I just noticed he had such heavy weight on his back/shoulders. I can just see his strain 🙂
