Joe studies the diamond he’s chosen. It’s simple, a pretty gold band with a square cut diamond on top, and a smaller, glittering stone on each side. To his way of thinking, it’s the only one he’s found so far that suits Melanie, the only one that he could see attracting her attention if she was the one doing the shopping for herself. She’s finicky with her jewelry, but he doesn’t mind. It’s one of the many things he finds endearing about her.
“Is that the one?” the clerk asks with a smile.
Joe smiles back. “It’s perfect,” he says.
