Perfect Setting

He always knew she was the one for him.

Their birthday was on the same date.

As they worked in the same office, their colleagues arranged a common party. 

This was happening for the past couple of years. 

This time they’d be at the other side of the globe. 

They both had been deputed for an overseas assignment.

The setting was perfect. 

He had waited for a long time for this moment. 
The rainbow was a good sign…
He decided to pop the question.

Lockdown was announced that day.

  5. I love rainbows, and always find myself smiling when I see one. Such beauty!

    Sad story, though, and I hope things work out well for this couple.

  8. Maybe just stay safe in the boat and pretend it's a vaca to celebrate their engagement. Interesting story.

  10. If they're in lock-down together, they'll certainly learn each others irritating habits, as well as all their good points, of course. It will be a good test for marriage!

  11. Lockdown on a yacht with a lover? I could live with that!

  12. Was lockdown announced before or after he popped the question? I wonder if it would affect her answer!

  13. Lockdown may force them to move in together but it looks like they were going in that direction anyway.
    Lovely ...
