    Melissa was much older than her face told. She had been planning this for a while now. The time was right ... just as she had imagined.

    (next person please add the following story chunk)
  • nnorris says
    she was confident because her family was near. They had always been so supportive
  • Skip Z
    Still she questioned, was it the right time, am I the one who can do it?
  • pdonaghy says
    Deep in her own thoughts, she didn't notice Brian enter the room.
  • fceblog
    Brian was tall, slim and still kept that mysterious look, which was the secret of his charm.
  • BethRitterGuth is
    But, she wasn't concerned with him; she was worried about the thing under her chair.
  • mindelei
    She was aware of it immediately, there was a disconcerting heaviness all around her.
  • cbuckybeaver
    Fear rooting her in place, she was too frightened to look, scream, anything at all. Seeing the frozen look on her face, Brian laughed.
  • ✿honeymic
    "Relax," he cooed in a smoky voice. "I put in there just for you."
  • milobo says
    Brian's look of surprise gave her the confidence she needed to carry out her plan here and now, before the others had a chance to interfere.
  • Skip Z
    Melissa knew as she pulled out the maglock and turned the door handle quickly, that, once the rest were locked on the other side of the door
  • ✿honeymic
    she could deal with the unexpected "gift" under her chair without involving others.
  • bookjewel
    The real problem was going to be her Aunt Maree's reaction to the whole situation. She tended to faint at the first sign of excitement.
  • lizbdavis
    Brian watched her exit, leaving his gift behind. I guess today wasn't the day to propose, he thought, tucking the blue box in his pocket.
  • LynDragon is
    On the other side of the door, Melissa breathed a sigh of relief as she thought about how to now put her plan into action.
  • ✿honeymic
    She knew she could never give herself fully to Brian until she dealt with the current situation, no matter the danger or the cost.
  • ✿honeymic
    She thought he understood that, but could never stay angry at him for long.
  • ✿honeymic
    "I only hope he understands the meaning of the ring I switched out of the blue box," she thought, while idly touching the sparkling diamond
  • ✿honeymic
    she had tenderly hung on her necklace and which lay right next to her heart.
  • metaweb
    Then as id from nowhere, Dante entered. His arrogance filled her. And then she remembered -- everything ...
  • mindelei
    She couldn't believe how fast things were changing. Life used to make sense, but she felt as though she was questioning everything she knew.
  • nononi
    If Dante was going to continue to disrupt her life with his houdini-esque reappearing acts, she would never be able forget what had happened
  • BethRitterGuth
    because it was the scariest moment of her life.
  • ✿honeymic
    Reminding herself that she had her family's unwavering support, and registering that Aunt Maree was nowhere in site, she knew the time had
  • ✿honeymic
    come to act. She withdrew the knife from her tunic and blinked as the light from the chandelier ricocheted off it's tip. She turned her

    feet towards Dante, and took the first step towards her destiny.
  • jasonwrites is
    Dante's gaze met her own and his widened eyes revealed a strangely swirled combination of bemusement and mild terror.
  • sharon_elin
    "Oh, dear! Yes, of course. This is Aunt Maree's heirloom ham slicer, and here I am about to bloody it." She flung it in the sink, disgusted.
  • mindelei
    If only she had realized that it wasn't really ham in the slicer, perhaps lives would have been saved!
  • lisibo
    Instead, she grasped the standard lamp and angled it so that the light blinded Dante.
  • sharon_elin
    "Sing!" She shook the light at him and he winced and backed away. "Sing, Dante, like your life depended on it!"
  • pdonaghy
    "No Dante!" cried Aunt Maree, as she rushed in. "Whatever you do, don't sing!!!"
  • milasunshine
    but Dante, as always, did what he was forbidden to do. The room filled with his strong and beautiful voice. And suddenly...
  • tarakbr
    the beautiful voice stopped and the man burst into tears. Sobbing, his begging eyes turned to Melissa
