This bedtime story is dedicated to my readers. You've been asking about my hinted engagement; here's how it went down a few months ago. Go to the pictures in the list to see how he picked out the ring and the box he used to proposed and his plan to sweep this gal off of her feet.
But where to ask his future wife for her hand?
Both he and his girl are history lovers. On their first date, they discussed going to George Washington's Mount Vernon estate together but they hadn't yet gone.
On a particularly warm and beautiful Saturday, the prince escorted his future bride towards the mansion. About an hour later, a guide invited the couple to the third floor which had been closed off to the public. She described the rooms and their history, which were mostly defined as Martha Washington's quarters, and also briefly touched on the Washingtons' marriage.
Our hero took his lover's hand and thanked his lady for the time they had spent together thus far, starting from when he first laid eyes on her and Mario. It reminded him of those Nintendo mystery blocks- one never knew what they contained. But sometimes they gave the traveler valuable things.
She somewhat suspected what might be going on at this point. But nothing could have prepared her for when he took out the box. At the realization of how much time, thought, and effort he had put into the proposal, this usually stoic woman broke down into sobs of joy.
His beautiful speech was largely inaudible over it, but he repeated it to her later. In the end, he got down on one knee and asked to spend his life with her. She'd never been more sure of anything than when she said yes.
Happy Valentine's Day, dear readers!
