“Will you marry me?” he asked his best friend.
She stopped short and a soft smile broke out across her pretty face.
“I don’t know…um…are you sure? I mean come on, we have just known each other for twenty years, that’s such a short period”, she said seriously.
“I know we are supposed to know each other for a hundred years or more, but I don’t think I’m going to live that long”, he replied with a grin.
“Okay…but first let us have lunch, I’m starving!” she said with a laugh as they crossed the road to their favourite cafe.
