"Will you marry me?", I whispered.
"Shhhhh", she said, adjusting her lenses. I looked at her absorbed in her work- that is one of the things I love most about her. Her total concentration, even on something as commonplace as a dandelion. The seeds scattered. Her shutter clicked continuously. She checked the images on the viewer.
"Darn, missed it again by a microsecond", she said straightening up. She turned her heart-shaped face to mine. "You were saying?"
"I love you", I said, slipping my arms around her waist. The moment had passed. I had a lifetime to pop the question.
