After a while, the man placed a large
cake box in the middle of the table. He opened the lid so that the woman
across the table from him could see its contents. Dodge then heard a little
squeal, which had to come from Jessie. He wondered what had brought that on.
Then the man was reaching under the table for something. In his hand was
what looked like a ring box. The man had obviously gone the distance with
all of his preparations for the proposal.
Dodge felt suddenly resentful of this
wealthy aristocrat, who had the nerve to woo his ex-wife in his very own
restaurant. The ring box soon lay open on the table in front of Jessie.
There was another little cry from her. How Dodge wished he could see her
face, could see the expression she wore. But, all he could see was one
dainty hand as she reached out to take the ring box. Then he heard her
"Gerard, it's absolutely
breathtaking. I have never seen anything so beautiful."
Though he could not see Jessie's face,
he could clearly see her hands and arms. Dodge watched as she took Gerard's
outstretched hand in hers. She caressed the man's large hand with her own,
repeatedly. He couldn't hear the words that passed between them. Dodge
watched them for what seemed an eternity to him. Then, finally, the pair
stood up from the table. He could see Jessie plainly now, as she threw her
arms around the man's neck and embraced him for a long while. Then she
planted a long deliberate kiss upon his lips.
