Anise stood spellbound, watching as he slid a bottle of Burgundy wine from a velvet bag, and produced two silver goblets from his pockets. Beckoning her to join him, Liam presented her with a tiny heart-shaped candy box. Kneeling down, he bid Anise to open it; and when she did she found a silver band of sparkling diamonds nestled in between the chocolates. Thus began a night of magic underneath the canopy of stars.
Fifty years of life flew by and found them once again beneath the stars with chocolates and wine, where Anise leaned into Liam and whispered softly, "I find it so amazing that our love feels just as magical as it did on that night so long ago."
