The flowers were stunning in the spring, Courtney thought, plucking a tulip from the rocky
ground. The wilting flower was then placed in her wild hair, which had at that moment been
resting down her back, sparkling with brilliance. It was no use, the flower refused to
stay put. She threw the lovely flower to the stale ground with impatience, though it
instead fell gently on her faded jeans.
No wonder she had gotten so frustrated with such a small trifle, she reflected, glancing
once again at her watch with dismay. He should have arrived over an hour ago! They had
agreed to meet in a secluded area so that the matter would be finished once and for all.
The field had served just that, for she was certain no one could see her. If only Trevor
wasn’t always late!
She brushed the accumulating dirt off her ripped jeans, stroking her sapphire necklace as
she did so. If only…If only they hadn’t eloped. If only they hadn’t left Great
Britain for a dump such as this. Kansas certainly wasn’t her type.
“Hey sweet pea. Sorry I’m late.” A gorgeous man with sun kissed skin put his arm
around her, dipping his feet in the pond below. Courtney could just barely see her former
fiancé through the rippling reflection in the pond, and was once again bewildered by her
luck of finding a guy like him.
“Hey Trev,” she replied, stroking his short curly hair gently. “You really
shouldn’t leave me hanging for thirty minutes.”
“Ah, Court, you know I try! And tonight I have a reason.” He whispered, pulling out a
glossy silver box. Yes, straight to the point. God, she hated gifts, even more when they
were jewelry. It just wasn’t her thing. However, if it would please him…she plucked
open the case and gasped as she saw what it contained.
A pair of striking earrings, perfect for her only dress. The longest and largest earrings
she had ever witnessed, and yet her heart yearned for them. They had the ever beautiful
sapphires all around them. It was the most adorable thing anyone had ever done for her.
“Ah, Trev! You shouldn’t have!”
“Do you like them?” he asked nervously. “I can always take them back…or…”
“Don’t be ridiculous Trevor! You know something so valuable isn’t returnable! And
besides! I love them!”
“Thanks, Court.” He said, grinning the goofiest grin she had ever seen. “I
presented them to you tonight because I thought it was a perfect time to tell you…”
And then the moment shattered.
Of course, this isn't all of it, but I'll continue it later. xD
