Reeds (2) - Round 18
Glancing back at Rosa, he noticed some discomfort. Taking her hands, he promised, "If you don't like it here, we can leave! I promise!"
Rosa smiled, "I know. I think I'll love it here. It just takes some getting used to!"
It was a shock to see Phillip so grown-up, he could still remember when Phillip was just a little kid tagging along. Now, here he was going off to college!
"What is it?" Rosa asked.
Rosa watched Wilson turn around root around in his pocket. "What are you doing? What's up?"
Wilson glanced back up, embarrassed. "Umm... hold on... it's stuck..." Finally Wilson managed to wiggle it out of his pocket. Clearing his throat he held out the ring.
Rosa could hardly contain her excitement! "Oh I will, Wilson! I love you!"
Wilson clasped his hands together and grinned. "It's beautiful! You're beautiful!"
He didn't think there was anything that would mar the beauty of this day!
"I know, baby. Come here and let me hold you," Rosa told him.
Wilson crawled back in bed and buried his head on Rosa's shoulder. "I miss her so much!"
"I know. I know." Rosa softly stroked his hair and Wilson soon fell asleep.
He stopped short when he saw Rosa in the kitchen talking with his family as though she belonged there. It made him realize how much he loved her.
Rosa glanced over. "Hey baby! You're awake!"
