"Are you serious?" She asked.
"Dead serious," I said. "I'm glad that I'm married to you. Stay with me."
She thought about this for a moment, chewing on her lip. Then, she simply nodded.
"Ok," she smiled. "Yes."
"I feel like I just proposed," I chuckled.
"I think that's as close as we'll get," she laughed, too. "Maybe the middle of the day is not so bad, after all."
She was funny. The thoughts she had, which maybe others wouldn't say out loud, were the ones I liked the most.
