A Rose Petal

A rose petal I purposely let fall innocently onto the carpeted living room floor. Seconds later the wind from the opened window blew it gently close to your bedroom door. Under the wooden entrance it magically blew and landed close to your side. It briefly stunned your eyes as you saw it floating as the petal could no longer from your heart hide. Your charming body lifted itself up and came searching for the rest of the velvety rose. Unknown to you that it was the one that I had secretly delivered with a fragrance of love for your nose.All you found was another petal lying next to a teddy bear holding a box of candy. Inside of it was sweet chocolate surrounding sweet cherries that you ate and did not leave any. Then you stood and saw another rose petal under the front door. You opened it and looked outside hoping to find a dozen roses galore. There was none except another single rose petal next to the sidewalk. You picked it up and saw an empty little box that made you not what to talk.Your eyes gazed towards the street and there you saw your car. And as you got closer you saw another rose petal that was not too far. After picking it up you noticed the ring that was attached with a short string. It was the engagement ring from the box that made your heart begin to sing. With my binoculars I watched from afar as you smiled and jumped up and down and shed a few tears. We had been going steady for a little more than five years.I came out of my hiding place and I was headed towards you to give you a hug and a kiss. Then suddenly a car stopped by the street and I could here one of the tires that had been punctured as the escaping air started to hiss. Out of the car a handsome young man got out to look at the damage on the tire. It was an ex boyfriend of yours that you told,” Thanks for the ring, and let’s get married before my body catches on fire!"
