2.58 – Caprice Takes the Plunge

November 21, 2015

Something was up.

Caprice straightened a loose hair for the hundredth time as she waited for Tank to arrive.  He’d sounded so strange on the phone.

“Think positive,” she told herself as she watched the random hair pop back out of place. “Tank is NOT breaking up with you.  Positive, positive, positive.”  She was still muttering to herself as she heard Tank’s footfalls on the front porch.

“Hi babe,” he said casually as he walked into the house.  He gave her a quick peck on the cheek.  “You ready?”

Peck on the cheek? she thought. What the hell!  He is breaking up with me!  “Think positive,” she muttered to herself one last time before she looked up and smiled.  “I’m ready. Where are we going?”

“I thought we’d try Londoste, over in Blackwater,” Tank said.  “It’s supposed to be amazing.”

“Londoste?  Tank, that’s so fancy!  Are you sure?  I don’t think I’m dressed for that place!”

Tank grinned and pulled Caprice in close.  “You’ll be the best looking girl there, I bet.”

The restaurant was beautiful.  And elegant.  And chic.  And it only served to make Caprice more nervous.  Tank was still acting so strange, she didn’t know what to make of it.  He was the perfect gentleman – ordering her food, selecting an excellent wine with the somalier, and chatting politely with the waiter.  Still, something was off. He seemed so distracted. Distant.

“What’s wrong?” he said, an adorable crinkle emerging between his eyebrows.  “Don’t you like the meal?”

“No, the meal’s…everything’s so great,” Caprice said.

“Oh good,” said Tank.  “Because I want this to be special…just right for you.”  She saw the flicker of anxiety cross his face for a brief moment before he reached into his pocket and pulled out a small box.

“Caprice…I know you don’t know what to do with your life just yet, but I know I want to spend my life with you…whatever path you choose.  Will you marry me?”

Her heart swelled up so full of love at that moment that she couldn’t speak.  So Caprice just smiled, slipped the ring on her finger and nodded yes, as she grabbed Tank’s hand and held on tight. Her mom had been right, after all. Life would figure itself out as it went along.
