Bill had a big surprise for me tonight. He took me to my favorite restaurant to celebrate all I have accomplished in the past year. I was told I could order anything I wanted to so I picked out fillet Mignon. I had always wanted to try it but was afraid of the prices. It was pretty good.
Afterward, he suggested we order a large ice cream sundae and share it. I was full from my meal but agreed anyway. He ordered one that was Neapolitan.
The waiter brought it out on a silver platter. First he set down our spoons then the tray. On the tray was a little box. I stared at it, confused.
Bill said, "I thought you deserved one more surprise for the night."
Bill opened the box and inside was a ring. He got down on one knee and put the ring on my finger. "Francesca Fletcher, will you marry me."
I shrieked and clapped my hands over my mouth. Stunned, I sat there for a moment then screamed yes and threw my arms around his neck.
Some people in the restaurant applauded.
We sat down and finished our ice cream.
Best dinner of my life ever!
