Sora and Kairi were sprawled across the latter's living room table, with crayons and paper. They were engaged in a serious game of hangman, in which Sora was stumping Kairi with his phrase choice. It was to be assumed that the two were both in their twenties; why else would they be playing with crayons?
Sora drew a plump head on the hanged man and a messy 'i' out in the margin.
"Is there an...'a'?"
Sora filled in the blank space, so that now the puzzle read:
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ a_ _ _ _ _ ?
"Are you sure I'll get it, Sora?"
"I hope so."
"I think I'll go with 'e' next."
"Good choice," he replied, filling in one more letter.
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ a_ _ _ _ e?
"Have you got it yet?"
"No, I've only got two letters! Sheez, so impatient. 'O'?"
Kairi giggled, "You sound like you're on Wheel of Fortune."
_ _ _ _ _ o_ _ a_ _ _ _ e?
"Is there a 't?"
"No 't," Sora monotoned drawing a nice stick body to accompany the head.
"Then I'll have to go with 'i'."
_ i_ _ _ o_ _ a_ _ _ _ e?
"You can't write well in crayon, can you?"
"Oh shut up."
"Next letter is a 'u'?"
"You are correct again. Kairi's on a role!"
She nudged him in feigned annoyance. "You can stop that now."
"Whatever you say."
_ i_ _ _ ou _ a_ _ _ _ e?
"Oh! I know the second word! Is it 'you'?"
"Yep..." Sora drew a sloppy 'y' in one blank, and another at the end of the next word.
_ i_ _ y ou _ a_ _ y _ e?
"This is a tough one..." Kairi tapped the table with her purple crayon, eyes squinted in concentration; usually Sora went with small, easy words, not big questions. "'K'?"
Now the hanging man had a left arm.
"You'd better get this, Kairi."
"Or...I dunno...I'll have to find a less creative way to ask you."
"Huh? So you're asking me a question? Well, you can't fit the word dinner in there..."
"Just keep guessing."
"'L'. I bet that's what those double letters are."
"You bet correctly," he said with a smile.
_ ill you _ a_ _ y _ e?
"Is there a 'p'?"
"Not even close," he chuckled. "Only two legs to go, Kai."
"I'll get it...'r'?"
_ ill you _ arry _ e?
Kairi tilted her head. "I feel like I should know this..."
"You should," he replied, thumbing the tip of his green crayon. "Next guess?"
Will you _ arry _ e?
It only took a good three seconds for her head to shoot up, her eyes bugging out. She kept glancing from the paper to his smile and with a faint voice guessed, "'M'."
"'M' is correct."
Will you marry me?
"So what do you say?"
With a loopy smile on her face, Kairi drew three more blanks underneath.

I can't get over how cute that was. Bah. This is how I want to be proposed to, though I fear I'll see it coming.
I need to start giving Sokai more love. So here you are Sokai--is this full of enough love for you?
Who can solve this one?
