I’m sort of laughing at myself knowing many of you fictioneers like morbid mysterious stuff. I considered writing about Luke’s jealous nature and the mysterious disappearance of Lucy’s former boyfriend. Ending with “What is that red liquid dropping under that bale of hay?” That is the plot of the morbid story I did not write.
The following story is the one I did write. 😀
“Reminds me of your marriage proposal,” smiled Lucy taking Luke’s hand.
Luke and Lucy were country kids. Not many options for Luke to make an impressive marriage proposal. Long walk on the beach? Romantic promenade across a mountain stream? A fine dinner at a luxury hotel? Not possible.
So Luke filled a box with hay and they played “find a needle in the haystack.” As they searched, he “found” the ring. Presented it as an omen from God that they should marry.
Cheesy? Yes. But Luke and Lucy are on their way to sell their hay. They are moving on up!
