Harts - Round 13
Evelyn flinched. "I'm sorry," she said. "We never meant to hurt anyone. We just still had feelings for each other."
"Well, go be happy somewhere else! I don't want to see you ever again!"
Mason put his arm around Evelyn's waist. "Come on, baby, let's go home." He steered her towards the door.
Seth collapsed on the couch and buried his face in his hands.
Amber thought about it a moment, then nodded. "Okay."
"Really?!" Aaron's voice cracked. He was so nervous! His first kiss! Leaning forward hesitantly, he pecked her on the lips and then pulled away.
"Will you wait for me? I have to go to work, but I don't want today to end. Just wait here.. watch some tv... ignore my parents... wait for me..."
Diane felt giddy. "Okay... I'll be here!" she gushed.
Seth kissed her soundly goodbye and then ran to catch his carpool.
Diane walked in slowly and looked around, feeling awkward now that Seth was gone. Hesitantly, she walked in and sat on the couch, waiting for someone to pop up and ask her what she was doing there. It would've been a good question, too! What in the world was she doing here?!
Diane kissed him back. "I'm here. I felt incredibly silly... but I'm here... I just couldn't leave..."
Seth stroked her cheek. "I feel the same way! I hope you don't think I'm crazy, but..."
Seth dropped to one knee. "Marry me!"
Diane nibbled on her lower lip. "We don't even know each other, though! This is crazy!"
Seth shoved the ring closer to her. "We'll get to know each other. I think what we have is rare - it's like love's thunderbolt has struck! Marry me and let's be crazy in love together!"
Diane threw herself into his arms. "How could I argue with that reasoning?" she laughed.
Diane looked around. "No I think I'm fine."
"I'm glad," Seth said. "You know, now that you're my wife - you can do whatever you want do. You don't have to be a waitress anymore."
Diane smiled. "I know, I got a job at the local school. Just until I find something else I like..."
