“Don’t feel bad, Mom, Marc didn’t get down on one knee either. But I think he did get weak in the knees. But you asked how he proposed. Let’s just say… I don’t think he planned for it.”
Lois smiled and took a delicate sip of her drink. I still had a stupid smile plastered on my face. I was having a blast. Well, I was until I glanced over and saw the pained look in Marc’s eyes, which was growing more noticeable with every additional comment out of Jaye’s mouth.
He was trying so hard to be a good sport. I could see it was getting increasingly difficult for him to let this charade continue. As he got agitated so did I. In an instant, the joke stopped being funny. It was sad and hurtful. No matter how hard I pretended, Jaye’s proposal wasn’t real, nor was it going to magically become so. Instead, it started to become crystal clear to me, while looking at Marc’s troubled face that he had no intention of proposing to me now, and I feared ever. Would I be okay always just being his girlfriend?
