The air was warm, despite the early hour, promising a hot summer’s day ahead.

Jason took my hand as he led me upstream along a woodland path. We came upon a clearing with a waterfall plunging into a deep, clear pool. Jason tugged me towards it, pulling me under a ledge and into a small cave behind.

It was perfectly timed. At that moment the sun broke the tree-line, the light bursting through the tumbling water, decorating the cave with a myriad of rainbows.

I gasped in delight, turning to Jason, my smile broadening as he dropped to one knee.

It is a precious moment to be remembered by your protagonist. Well portrayed.

You are welcome, Carrie. Indeed, it is very romantic, Carrie.

A very romantic story, Carrie, expressed in a wonderfully poetic way. Having that impression fresh in my mind, I laughed out loud when I went on to read your answer to Lotchie’s comment.

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
