It was a beautiful summer day with the sun high in the sky. The trees being lightly rustled by the slightest of breezes helping to keep the hot temperatures at bay making it comfortable enough to be outside in the sun.
In the woods nearby the animals frolicked and playfully chasing one another enjoying life.
Meanwhile Michael was headed to his girlfriend’s apartment to pick her up for a day at the beach followed by a bonfire cookout at her brother’s new house. Secretly Mike and her brother have something special planned for her that evening.
Suddenly a squirrel darted out into the road in front of Mike’s truck while chasing an acorn. Seeing the truck the squirrel stopped dead in the middle of the road sitting and looking at the truck as if it were a dear caught in the headlights.
With the sight of the squirrel he stomps on the breaks and swerves to avoid the hitting the cute little squirrel. Losing control of his truck as he hits the gravel shoulder. With the truck finally coming to rest the squirrel scampers off into the woods with the acorn stuffed in its mouth.
Climbing out of his truck Mike was mad at himself for swerving to avoid the squirrel. He wanted to check to see if there was any damage to his truck from the slide since he had side swiped a small spindly tree. The truck had a lot more damage than he was hoping for.
To start there were gauges in the black onyx paint that went down the entire passenger side of the truck and the mirror was just hanging there from the wires. Seeing this damage really pissed him off to high heaven. Especially since he had only had the truck for a week.
When he arrived at his girlfriend’s house see could instantly see that something was obviously wrong. Guiding him to the couch she climbed on to the back of the couch and had him sit between her legs. From this position she was in the perfect spot to give him a deep shoulder massage.
After sometime she took his hand and guided him into the bedroom. He was extremely tense and wanted to give him a good and proper massage. Her being a professional masseuse was always an added bonus when Mike was tense.
After she was finished relieving his tension the two of them curled up to cuddle in each other’s arms.
“So much for the beach” Michael said.
As the afternoon passed by Michael started to get more and more nervous. In the back of his mind all could think about was the plans he had for the bonfire cookout. It was obvious that his girlfriend could see the subtle change in his mood, even though he constantly insisted that he was perfectly fine.
“Mike what is wrong? You look like death,” stated Kevin, as Mike and his girlfriend arrived.
“I’m just really nervous. Not to mention look at my new truck.”
“Relax you’ll do absolutely fine. Plus I like to think I know my sister pretty well. Trust me she is not with you for your truck. I’m sure it is something she is interested in,” stated Kevin as he motioned towards Mike’s crotch. They both laughed as she approached.
“What’s so funny?” she asked as she approached.
“Nothing sweetie,” Michael replied as he kissed her on the cheek.
“Why don’t I believe you?” she asked with a suspicious look on her face. “What are the two of you up to over here?”
“Oh nothing,” they both replied in unison as they walked towards the crowd gathered around the fire pit.
“Hey everybody, can I have your attention, thank you. First off I want to thank you all for coming this evening. Please feel free to check out the new place. Make sure you leave a quarter on the counter in the bathroom.” The entire crow laughed right along with Kevin. “Now before everyone drinks them self to oblivion, Mike here has something he wants to say.”
“Jessica I love you with all my heart. I want to ask you in front of all our friends, will you do me the honor of being my wife?” asked Michael as he got down on one knee in front of Jessica. The entire crowd gasped in awe as looks of anticipation erupted on their faces.
