I told her this was the young man I had been dating for the last year, but we hadn’t yet made it known because of how our mother was.
All my sister ever seems to get done is reading romance novels. The more scandalous the book sounds, the better she likes. She keeps tell me that reading romance novels is a way for her to learn how to write better. She had been working on a romance novel for the last 10 years, and all of her reading is not getting it done any quicker. Last week, my sister saw me outside hugging the HVAC technician. She did have to look out the windows just as she caught him pulled me closer and kissed me. Before I had a chance to move away, she was outside and smiling. She grabbed my arm and whispered in my ear that this could be the makings of a good scandal. I stopped dead in my tracks and started pulling her back over to where the HVAC tech stood. I introduced her to Jacob and introduced him to my sister. I told her this was the young man I had been dating for the last year, but we hadn’t yet made it known because of how our mother was. Whenever she even got the hint that one of us girls had a boyfriend, she was already to plan a wedding. Jacob, my darling HVAC technician, winked at my sister. He asked my sister she thought that was something she would enjoy doing with my mother? I turned and looked at Jacob as he got down on one knee and pulled a ring out of his pocket. I thought he had come over to do some air conditioning repairs, but he was actually here to ask me to marry him.
