Henry Wu had never been a particularly nervous person. Heck, he had stood face-to-face with a Velociraptor before, and had not even felt any fear. He had created it, why fear it? Yet here he was, standing nervously outside the door of the juvenile dinosaur nursery, twiddling his thumbs and receiving curious looks from passing workers. Only Hammond knew what he was up to, and even he had found it odd that Wu was about to do what he was about to do.
"Oh well, I'll just have to go in there," thought Wu aloud. Drawing a deep breath, he entered the nursery. He looked around, finally spotting Kathy in a corner with a baby Maiasaur, which was attempting to hide behind an incubator. He walked up to her, unnoticed because she had her back to him.
As he approached her, he heard her humming, "He loves me, he loves me not, he loves me…"
His heart beat faster. This was it. Somehow finding his suddenly lost voice, he said, "Kathy?"
She turned around, knocking her head on the incubator. The Maiasaur finally gave up trying to hide behind the incubator, running towards Wu and sniffing at his foot. Kathy got up, and brushed some hay off her lab coat.
"What brings you here?" she asked, rubbing her forehead.
"Hope I didn't shock you…" Wu said, turning red.
"Henry Wu, what did you do this time!" said Kathy, putting her hands on her hips and looking incredibly intimidating.
"N-nothing… What gave you that idea?" asked Wu, stepping back.
"Well, lets see; One, you probably caused an explosion in the lab again. I told you that potassium and methanol are not supposed to be mixed…. Secondly, you might have accidentally destroyed my laundry again!" she said, now crossing her arms.
"No to both. For once, I kept the methanol in the freezer and the potassium sealed away. Your laundry was never touched by anyone today, and I can assure you that I'm here for a special purpose," he said, reaching into his pocket.
"Oh, the guy I've been dating for a year now has got me a prezzie? That's sweet, Wu, but I've got no space to keep stuff," she said.
"Err… I actually wanted to say… umm…," he stuttered.
"Awww, grow some balls and spit it out," she said, laughing, punching his arm.
"Here goes," he said, looking as though he was going to faint, "Kathy, will you marry me?"
She blinked twice, her mouth agape. They stared at each other for a while, and were snapped out of their reveries by the Maiasaur urinating on Wu's foot. Kathy smiled, and said, "Yes."
Later that day, no one,except for Kathy and Hammond,knew why Wu had gone and ran smack into a glass door outside the nursery, breaking his nose and the door. As they carted him off to the clinic, Kathy heard him sing drunkenly, "Congratulations, and celebrations…"
