The young man with messy black hair sitting in front of you was one of them. For close to five years you had been dating him but never once had he uttered those magic words. Normally, it didn’t bother you but today was special. Today was the day that he had promised to propose to you – right after his graduation from college.
Yet the awkward guy was acting just like normal, sitting in that slouch of his while his dark eyes roved over the piles of papers in front of him. Obviously deep in thought over some Math problem as usual. For him, the problems to solve were never-ending and that was what attracted you to him in the first place. But today, it was merely getting on your nerves. Creeping up on him, you wrapped your arms around him and gave him a light peck on the cheek.
“Hey L, do you know what day it is today?”
