He waited until they were both in their flannel plaid pajamas with their hot cocoa and salty late-night snacks. She was wide-eyed when she opened the box, gazing at the jewels and listening as he asked for her hand. She slipped the ring on her finger, watching it beneath the moonlight and city street lamps that streamed light through their window. She said yes, and wondered how many others had said before her.
