100 Not-Out (100 Word stories)

The proposal!

Arti, a single parent, was now looking for a companion to share responsibilities with and combat her loneliness.
She parked her car. The rain had stopped and the moon was out in its glory. She could see in the window, her favourite flower in the vase .
Amit, her high school friend often helped out by babysitting her daughter, Anu.
As she entered home, Amit faced her down on his knee. Before he could say anything, she shouted out in glee “Yes, I will marry you!”
He turned red and replied softly, “I was actually looking for Anu’s lost shoe.”
