Twilight in Harajuku. Lights aglow from the shops along Takeshita dori. Hand in hand my BF pauses and says ” kekkon shite kudesai?”. I stare blankly, awaiting a translation. 20 seconds later I give in and awaiting my next lesson in Japanese ask “What does that mean?”. In response he drops to one knee forcing the locals and tourists alike to scatter around us, as a white box with a surreal inner glow materializes in his hand. 13 million people in Tokyo fade away as the voice on the only one who matters asks “Will you marry me?”….
I said yes of course.
Sorry for the radio silence over the past while. I’ve been basking in the glow of our engagement.
Hope 2013 finds everyone healthy and happy!
