13 (who?)
For some absurd reason,
I have a memory of you
Asking me to marry you.

We were sitting on the hill,
Like we normally did,
Looking towards the bay,
And I remember that the water
Was sparkling like liquid diamond.

It was high summer,
And there were those
Butterflies, the ones I love
Amongst the wildflowers

I was in a dress for once,
Pale pink silk gauze,
And you'd spread your jacket
Out for me to sit on.

I turned round,
And your eyes nearly
Swallowed me.
Like white light
Through green leaves.

You opened your hand,
And there was the most
Perfect ring, gold and one
Deep emerald, like
Looking into the soul of growth

It was a pretty proposal,
Out in the open,
In the sun,
From the most beautiful
In the world.

I remember.

I remember I said no.
yes, okay, i know it's dreaful, don't judge me...

Totally creeping your gallery, don't mind me.
I know you think this isn't well written, but there's a beautiful story lurking underneath. There are endless reasons for why she could have said no and I love that you left it up to us to decide. :)
I'm going to leave now before you think I'm really creepy, aha.

why did she say no???!

I don't know. Maybe she didn't like his dress sense. Or he was secretly a mass murderer. Or... she was engaged to someone else. Or didn't want to love him. I DON'T KNOW!!

Yes, it's my split personality coming into play again. obviously. What did you think of London Clay characters + the doppelganger pieces?
