Proposal Story

During the 2020 Christmas season, she was visiting at home and her parents were trying to kick her out so that she could get back to him because he was ready to propose. The tree lights were off and one ornament was lit and the ring was in that bulb. Music was playing. She walked in the back door and was carrying bags and was confused by why he didn’t help her. But there he was standing in the room next to the tree, waiting for her.
