"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.
Catch this, and many other drabbles on the many facets of Love, live and excusive on the Valentine Feature at 'the Burrow'.

A new drabble (or more) every single day in the month of February.

All your favourite drabblers are there- don't miss it!

A Drabble a Day, Everyday.

I love this, especially the last line.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

He stumbled through it once - at some point, he'll manage to say it again.

Dorte H said...

A sweet drabble - which can be interpreted in many ways.

Margot Kinberg said...

Rayna - What a wonderful little story :-). I love it that he cares that much about her. A great story!

Ella said...

I love this, it made me blush, to think the intimate moment was scattered and lost. Great Job~

Debra She Who Seeks said...

"Drabblers" -- ha ha, it never occurred to me that this is what writers of drabbles would be called, but it makes sense! A bit uncomfortably close to "dribblers" though, isn't it, LOL?

LTM said...

@ Damyanti- thank you. I wrote the last line first, incidentally!

@ Alex - I am sure he will. Only not now.

@ Dorte- thank you. I had only one story in mind, but the beauty of shorter fiction is that it is open to interpretation.

@ Margot- thank you. There's is quite a perfect relationship, isn't it?
He will make her happy, and derive happiness from her.

@ Ella - like Alex says, he did it once, so he will definitely do it again.

@ Debra- I never quite figured why they are called drabbles, but if they are drabbles, we are drabblers, even if it is uncomfortably close to another.

@ Leigh- thank you, Leigh. I love writing love story drabbles. Actually, if I am to make a confession, I love love stories.

@ Oddyoddyo13- they are, aren't they?

@ Jessica- thank you.
