When they arrived, Jim the bartender greeted them with a smile. "Two beers and two hamburgers Jim." Larry ordered for them as they sat down in a corner booth. Jack had been silent on the way over and Larry could tell that his friend really wanted to talk.
"Jack, you wanna talk about it buddy?" Larry asked cautiously. "I just don't know what to think Larry. How could this have happened? Susan and I have only been married for a year, and she's already gone! I mean, she was only 25 Larry! Why Larry, why?" Jack put his face in his hands and began to sob. "Jack, I know that it was a terrible thing that happened to Susan, but there was nothing you could've done to help her. She was just doing her daily job as a flight attendant. Neither one of you had any way of knowing that that particular plane would crash. No matter what Jack, you can't blame yourself." Jack sighed and tried to dry his tears. "I know Larry, it's just that I'm going to miss her so much. She was my best friend." "I know buddy, I know, but maybe, just maybe there's someone out there for you that you'll love even more than Susan." Jack looked up quickly. "I highly doubt that Larry"
Janet Wood locked the door to the Arcade flower shop after she ushered the last few costumers on their way. "What a day!" She said to herself. She grabbed her purse and made her way out to her car. She sat down in the front seat and checked the messages on her cell phone. The first one was from her boyfriend David. "Hi sweetie! Meet me at The Plaza as soon as you get off work! I have a big surprise for you! I love you! Bye!" Janet smiled as she hung up the phone. She put the car into drive and pulled out on the highway toward The Plaza. She found a parking space and hurried inside where David was waiting for her.
"Hi precious!" He greeted her with a kiss. They were shown to a table and David ordered for them. Janet noticed that he couldn't keep his eyes off of her. "So, what's the big surprise?" She asked curiously. "Well Janet, you and I have been dating for 2 years now and I can honestly say that it's been the best 2 years of my life. With that being said, Janet Elizabeth Wood, will you marry me?" He got down on one knee and opened a box holding a beautiful diamond ring. Tears of joy fell from Janet's eyes. "Yes David, of course I'll marry you!" She said excitedly as he slipped the ring on her finger. He leaned in and kissed her. "I love you Janet." "I love you too David."
