She sat at the top of a cliff and caught her breath, her harness still dangling from her waist. The sun was just kissing the horizon and the light had turned a rich and buttery yellow. The sea below was a shocking shade of blue. He came and sat next to her and offered her a bottle of water. When she took it and went to turn the lid, she heard a clink and noticed a glint off the bottle. She tore her eyes from the ocean and looked down at the bottle, hanging around the neck was a ribbon and strung on the ribbon was a magnificent diamond ring. She looked at him and he shrugged and smiled.

“Shall we?” he asked.

“Yes.” she said, and grasped the hand he offered. “Yes, I think we shall.”
