Before Forever

She was a college student getting her Medical Degree. He was a proud Marine. They fell in love even though months would go by without them ever getting a chance to see each other. She wrote him letters everyday hoping to comfort him while he was braving the perils of war. She loved him with all her heart. Days passed and the seasons changed as she patiently waited for her man to come home for all he had for company while he was overseas is his buddies and a worn out picture of her.
It was worn from the many times that he had taken it out to remember a little piece of home. A little piece of the close yet so faraway past. He decided to pop the question when he returned. Surprise her maybe? Bumping into her “randomly” on the street and getting on one knee in front of strangers.
“Pardon me miss, looks like you dropped your ring.”
