The Salient Gentleman

Leaning over the lovely Oak table at the bed and breakfast, my love kissed me softly on the lips. This weekend stay at the Burwell Bed and Breakfast solidified our relationship that had been growing ever closer over the past year.  A story book romance I called it, was heaven on earth. I never thought that my prince charming would ever show up. Here we were at the most prominent B& B in the Midwest. Paul had told me nothing is too great for my gal.  Brunette hair and a face that looked angelic in purity. He was the perfect guy. Holding doors open no matter where we entered, a rose at every date, and words that most women long to hear.  I love you Laura and I want to spend my life with you.

This salient man, a Doctor of Pediatrics.  He was smart, loving, kind and well, in love-making, I sweat just to think about it.  The waitress brought out the last course of the meal and our favorite.  Cherry Cheesecake Jubilee.  " Laura, I will let you do the honors."  I opened up the silver chafing dish admiring the vanilla white cheesecake and cherry red fruit on top.  Shining right on top of the cherries was something I could not make out.  "Paul, there is something on top of the cheesecake, shall we send it back?"  "Oh, Laura why don't you look a bit closer he said as he giggled."  I let my finger lift up on the shiny vessel and let out a scream that girls from all around the world would recognize.  Shaking, I looked closer as this beautiful diamond at least one carat inlaid in a beautiful Gold band littered with not one, not two, but four diamonds.  "Paul, it is so lovely.  "Well please don't leave a man in love waiting."   Now down on one knee and the entire staff at the bed and breakfast looking on, He said It.  He said the words I had been longing for, " Laura, Will you marry me and make me the happiest man on earth?"   " Yes, Yes, Yes, Paul, I will marry you."

Sad that the weekend had to end, Paul and I packed up our luggage and headed out to our separate cars since we both had to drive to work in the morning. Paul finished packing toiletries as I went out and loaded up my car.  Knowing I had left my cell phone in his car from the night before I went to the back seat where I had left it.  Pondering why it was not there, I guessed he must have put it in the trunk which he had opened during our packing.

There it was, my phone, but what lay next to it had my mind going in all directions.  A bible and a Priest habit with the entire black and white uniform.........................

  5. Oooh, maybe he's off to a vicars and tarts party! Or he's really a priest, but that's a boring answer. I know! He's a serial killer and he uses the priest kit to lure unsuspecting women in to aid him! (Actually, that's more like something I'd write!) Loved this, Laura <|:o)
