Raymond knelt on one knee, reached into his pocket, and smiled.
A cacophony of noise erupted around Raymond. He ignored it, only preparing to listen for Sandra’s reply. The room was humid, warm, and filled with odors.
Sandra stared down at the man who was in a stance of adoration.
“Sandra,” Raymond whispered. “I know this is only the second time we have met, but for me, it was love at first sight.” He brought his clenched hand out of his pocket. “I want to be with you, forever.”
Sandra barked once and gobbled the wishbone treat out of Raymond’s hand.
