Kyia came into the kitchen and saw a pile of snow shaped into a heart on the table.
‘Why is that there?’ she asked her boyfriend, Max.
He was sipping coffee and looking at his phone, seemingly not aware of the slowly melting snow next to him.
‘What’s where?’ Max asked, distracted.
‘The snow on the table,’ Kyia pointed out.
‘It’s Valentine’s day and I thought it would be a nice hiding place for your present.’
Confusion passed over Kyia’s face then she begin searching through the snow heart. Her fingers found something hard and she withdrew a sliver ring with a central diamond.
‘Will you marry me?’ Max asked.
