Phil & Finley


Phil waited down by Monk Pier for Finley to arrive. The sun was setting beautifully. For that small romantic gesture from nature he was glad. When Finley finally arrived, all giddy enthusiasm as always had been their nature, Phil beckoned for them to come sit by him and took their hand in his.
“I have known for a long time that you are the one Fin. I could tell you a million reasons why I love you but that would be corny and you’d hate it …”
Finley laughed.
“True, let’s not get into Carl’s leaving party when you drunkenly declared your undying love for me!”
Phil smiled.
“But anyway, the main reason I do love you is that you are my best friend as well as my partner. Would you marry me, like?”
“Nothing better to do so yeah.”
They both smiled and Phil placed the ring on Finley’s finger.

    Cute story that ended with a surprise engagement. Sweet 🙂

  2. There is a causal matter-of-factness about this proposal which is so at odd with the romantic setting and sunset. Nice juxtaposition, Lisa.

  3. Romantic! Enjoyed reading a lot 😀
