last night i went on a walk by the lake with some friends, and we stumbled across some people frantically lighting candles in the sand.
"what are they doing?"
"wait, does that spell..."
yes, we had discovered a marriage proposal in action!
it was about that moment when they pleaded for our help, and we ended up crawling around in the sand lighting hundreds of tea lights right along with them.
we finished our fiery masterpiece just in time and ran off to hide before the couple in question came walking across the bridge overlooking the glowing creation.
they came strolling down the bridge and saw the letters, and the girl got all caught up in looking at it, not fully realizing the message was for her.
while she was looking down at the letters, el hombre dropped down on one knee and it all clicked and then there was much hugging and kissing and other smushy stuff.
look at us, we've got that "we just helped a stranger propose" glow:
all in all, it was one of the loveliest magical adventures i've ever had while going on an otherwise uneventful walk by the lake.
have you ever seen a public proposal in person?
i burned my fingers several times on those tea lights,
p.s. remember that time i helped a friend propose in the airport?
