EM-Drabbles – Sixty-One

They’d been dancing on the beach in the moonlight, then walked along the very edge of the waves, naked feet leaving transient prints where the sea kissed the sand.

“I do love you, you know,” he said, “ I wish we could stay here forever.”

Her thoughts were less loyal. They were in the city where the excitement of her glittering career beckoned.

But he didn’t understand. He never did.

As they got back to the hotel he pulled out the inevitable ring box.

She turned away to hide her frustration.

Why did he have to spoil such a perfect evening?
