I love surprises. I think surprises are incredible acts of thoughtfulness and character. Proposals overwhelm me, because no matter how fancy or simple, the meaning behind it is very touching. Christian and Akash are buddies, and when Christian heard of how Akash asked me to ninjastalk his proposal to Brinda, he wanted to do the same for his girlfriend (now fiance), Anne-Marie!
Christian had set out a pile of books on the sidewalk of his house labled “free”. I perused them all as I waited for them to leave their house and take their walk to the Jamaica Plain pond. As Christian and Anne-Marie left their home, my heart started pounding furiously.
