39. I was attending my brothers best friends 20th birthday party. He got wasted, blew out his candle, and then proceeded to propose to his girlfriend in front of everyone at the party. He gave a sloppy slurred speech about how they’ve only been together for 5 months, “but it’s okay because it was kind of magical”. It took a whole 4 minutes of him saying “please” and “I love you baby” for her to say yes, the guy didn’t even have a ring. Everyone was speechless like we literally fucking clapped, no cheering and no congratulating. I will never forget the look on her face, I have never seen a person force a smile that like.
The last time I saw them together was when I was driving home 3 months later. She was walking really fast, without a jacket, in the freezing rain. He was in his car driving alongside her, apparently trying to get her to get in. Needless to say, there was no wedding.
