“I can't marry you right now,” I told David after he asked me the question. He didn't say a word, he just got up and left, leaving me alone and confused.
He didn't say where he was going and I had made up my mind that I would find him. I drove all over town as my eyes fogged up from the tears.
My heart was broken. Maybe I was too hasty in my decision. After all, I can't imagine spending the rest of my life with anyone but David. He didn't understand that my first marriage didn't end so well, leaving me shy from marrying again.
I have made up my mind. I will keep looking until I find him and tell him that I would marry him after all. I can see clearly now.
