"Going Through the Motions"
(Part 7 in the "Ghosts with Relationship Problems" series)
While neither seemed to be happy to be dating the other for quite some time, Wayne and Isabella the Ghost stayed together out of habit more than anything else.
With an anniversary coinciding with a planned vacation to the beach, Isabella started leaving heavy hints about a need for the relationship to become more “for sure”. Wayne, wanting to avoid a fight about where the relationship was going, decided that it was about that time… because “that’s what ya do”. He had to propose.
Plus, if he DIDN’T, they’d maybe have to break-up soon, he’d have to find a new apartment… it’s such a hassle.
Wayne proposes on the beach as the sun sets over the vast endless ocean, like you’re supposed to. Isabella, feigning surprise, squeals with joy because it’s the expected response and immediately calls her parents on her cell-phone.
Walking back towards the car, the deed done, an empty feeling creeps into Wayne’s gut. He ignores it for 7 more years.
