Panic gripped me.

After three years, I assumed James shared my fantasy. We'd talked of growing old together. Over a candlelight dinner, I surprised him.

"I'm pregnant."

Red wine spewed across the table. I collapsed in inconsolable tears.

The next morning, he sent flowers, apologizing.

Still stinging, I sent him a single black rose. My note suggested he rot in hell. I wasn't a desperate woman.

He sent an engraved invitation. 'Please meet me tonight at 222 Landon Lane."

My heart melted.


Outside the house, my spirits wavered.

Opening the door, I froze. Black linen draped the furniture. A skeleton dangled nearby.

Was this a sick joke?

Hysterical, I raced outside, barreling into James.

"Honey, what are you doing?"

"I got the message!" I whined.

"What? ... Last year's haunted house?" Laughing, James pointed at the house next door.

A pink arrow made of wood read, Will you marry me?
