An Empty Ring Box

An empty ring box with the ring in the distance.

Perhaps returning the ring was such a shameful experience because I could dodge the "pain bullet" with everyone else and manage to make light of the situation or play it off in some small way, even Rachle and I can joke about it in the middle of a serious conversation. But the Shane Company, Direct Diamond Importers, will not be fooled by the light-hearted jest of the denied. They were not complete strangers, for they knew how dearly the ring cost me not only in dollars, but more importantly, emotional risk. Only 15 days before, they watched as I painstakingly deliberated to select the perfect match of ring and diamond, and were coolly aware I could barely manage to conceal my overwhelming pride and delight when leaving with the trophy, the symbol of my lifelong commitment to love and treasure another human being.
