She sat at the rocky shore of the lake where the maple leaves were green like emeralds and the water glittered like diamonds. It was like the ring on her finger, the one she wore everyday just because he had given it to her. Springtime had come to life and the flowers were blooming, waiting to be bundled into vases and admired by passersby. He sat next to her, holding her hand, playing with her ring as it was his touchstone. They were drunk on sunshine and lemonade, giving each other warm glances and watching the sun as it made its way across the sky.
