Twiglet — Not What She Was Expecting

“He Just called and wants to meet me at the bar after work today,” Amanda told her coworker, Sally. “What do you think it means?”

“It probably means he wants to have a drink with you after work today,” Sally said, laughing.

“Stop it, Sally,” Amanda said, “I’m serious. Brad and I have been going out for four months and I feel like things between us have stalled.”

“Four months is not that long, Amanda,” Sally said. “But maybe you should come right out and ask him where he sees your relationship heading. If he leans over and gives you a kiss on the cheek, that will speak volumes.”

A few hours later, Amanda walked into bar, spotted Brad at a table, and headed over to him. Brad stood up and greeted Amanda with a kiss on the cheek.

Amanda started to cry. “Sally was right. After four wonderful months you’re blowing me off.” She turned around and started to run out of the bar, but Brad caught up with her.

“Amanda, wait,” he said grabbing her arm and turning her around. “I’m not blowing you off. Not even close.” He reached into his pocket and pulled out a small square box. He flipped it open, got down on one knee, handed the box to her and said, “Make me the happiest man on Earth and say yes.”

Written for for Misky’s Twiglet for the phrase, “kiss on the cheek.”

    Lovely! Mr Misky and I were engaged after 5-months. We’ve been married for 44-years. It does happen.

      It’s not a word that applies to most of my posts, but it fits this one. Thanks.
