After the beautiful music which seemed to fill the entire neighborhood faded away into the silence of the night brought about by the band of five hired especially by Jerome on such an event, he finally appeared from the shadows and raised a bouquet of flowers, a dozen of white and yellow roses, sprinkled with little budding baby's breath.
Ella, from the second landing of her apartment, stood looking fondly at him, knowing too well what would come next after such an interlude—the much anticipated proposal of the man who couldn't have done any better on such an occasion.
Jerome knelt in front of her, the way perhaps a knight would have to receive an honor in the presence of a lady soon to be his bride. After all, she wanted a fairytale which pictured a princess and her knight in shining armor. And for the 20th century setting, it was the closest thing which can resemble a tale of once upon a time, in a faraway kingdom, there was prince and a princess…and they lived happily ever after. He thrust out a small velvety box of which she knew too well could only hold the bond which can make her belong to him.
