How They Asked

Ruben insisted that we spend Christmas with his family in New York. I didn’t think much of it because my family lives on California which is much further from us. The entire weekend in New York was normal for one of our visits up until midnight on Christmas Eve. Ruben handed me a wrapped gift and explained that he’d gotten me something this year (we never exchange gifts on Christmas). Right away it was fishy. I opened the gift and found a custom photo album with pictures of us. It was sweet coming from a hardened Marine Corps veteran. The very last page featured the custom-made ring and in huge lettering were the words Will You Marry Me? Ruben kneeled on one knee, gave a short speech, and asked for my hand in marriage. After five years together, I was weeping tears of joy as I exclaimed “Yes!”
