Beautiful Ring

Beautiful Ring

My boyfriend Adam proposed just last two weeks ago, and it was perfect. He picked me up from work and took me to a Chinese food restaurant that we go to often. We had a lovely meal and asked for the check. They brought it out with two fortune cookies as usual and I chose my cookie. I opened my cookie and put my fortune face down on the table as I always do, making sure that I eat the cookie before I see the fortune. Adam on the other hand was not eating his cookie and was just watching me. I thought it was a little weird so I asked why he wasn't eating his cookie, and he said he was just waiting for me. I was a little thrown off by this and he noticed so he picked up the second cookie and began to fiddle with it pretending to open it. At this point I was done eating my cookie and picked up my fortune. The first line read "I love you Peggy", I paused and thought to myself how specific this fortune was and how lucky I was to receive this one, but was a little confused. The second line of the fortune read "Will you marry me?". At this point I just gasped in shock looked up at Adam and saw a HUGE smile on his face, I started crying and he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him as he pulled a beautiful ring out of his pocket. I of course said YES! And the restaurant gave us complimentary wine to celebrate the occasion.
