Jon was beginning to think he’d made a mistake, not only in coming here, but his understanding of what made Elise tick.
They had enjoyed so many visits to the theatre over the years, their friendship remaining solid, yet he always wanted more but was afraid to say.
Shakespeare had always been a favourite and now here he was, planning a proposal of great magnitude, and he was terrified he couldn’t pull it off!
He heard footsteps on the above balcony and seeing Elise standing there, moved out of the shadows and began:
‘Soft…………. what light thru’ yonder window breaks………..’
and hoped for a miracle.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
