Another Try


“Will you marry me?” he asked her for the second time.

“I have equal number of chits stating ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ in this jar consisting of 100 chits. You pick out 50 chits and we will count the number. My decision Yes/No will be based on the majority chits you pick…”

The last time he had asked the same question, she had set a different challenge.

Though he had collected 50 sea-shells of the same size within an hour, she hadn’t agreed.

Still, he was ready for another try.

Her heart melted as she saw him pick the chits longingly.

Will it be a Yes/No? What do you think? Do share in the comments below.

  2. Neat story, but who would want to marry someone who made decisions in this way?
    Reminiscent of the cult book The Dice Man nearly 50 years ago.

  3. Poor Guy, so much for his love. The game can continue only till his heart rules over his mind.

  4. I think if she doesn't know her own mind on this, he should turn tail and leave

  5. coming into the story late, I'm wondering why he even wants to marry her if that's how she treats him?

  6. If he's lucky, the answer will be "no" and he'll find someone who won't play games with his heart.

  7. Dear Anita,

    If this is the way she decides things I think his answer should be, "Forget about it."

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  10. May be she has her doubts. May be she had experienced bad things before. Instead of getting swayed by emotion, she should decide with a cool head. Because this will a decision for life.

  11. What a way to make such a decision. I can see the logic for less important choices, but there is a distinct lack of emotion using this process to answer a proposal of marriage!

  12. Showing the shallow characters well with such big decision being handled so flippantly...

  14. For his sake, I hope it's a no.

  15. Seems, she loved him too. *her heart melted*
    Why doesn't she say yes? what's stopping her?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Poor sap, he is done whether she says yes or no.

  17. He needs a friend to nudge him and say, keep your chits. My love deserves a better recipient...

    ReplyDelete
  18. Think it will be yes, hope it's no. Great take anyhow!

  19. Silly woman is going to lose him if she doesn't quit playing games. What she should have done is write "yes" on each chit. Problem solved.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I think she shoukd say yes. He would not stay around long if she continues with her silly games.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh! I feel pity for this guy...this is not the way to decide about love. I agree with Rochelle that he should forget about this and neither wait for her Yes or No

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wow, she is giving him a hard time! I like how you used almost all the items in the prompt.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think if she loves him she should say Yes or get the hell out. Poor bloke.

    ReplyDelete
  24. She obviously cares for him so why does she tease him? Good story.
