She sat staring ahead, unable to believe what had just happened. He waited for an answer, watching for a reaction, anything on her face which might give him a clue. After what seemed like minutes she turned towards him and her mouth opened but no words came out.
“I know you’ve been hurt before. I promise I won’t do what he did.”
She knew in her heart that he wasn’t capable of doing what Charles had done but it would take a huge leap of faith to agree to what he was proposing.

“OK, yes, I will marry you. Yes!”

  1. Is this a bit more from your book? I really felt for him, sitting there waiting for her reply. I'm glad she put him out of his misery with a positive answer.

  2. Like it; you went for a similar theme to me; I know lots of people who have gone through this exact scenario. Well written 🙂
