Alternative

Fantasy reading romance novel book
After a lovely romantic dinner, Zack took Zelda for a moonlit stroll on the beach and kissed her as the warm waves rolled in and tickled their bare feet.

“Marry me, Zelda!” Zack declared passionately.

“What’s my alternative?” she asked.

“Uh, a lifetime alone, doing whatever you please, fantasizing about some ridiculous perfect love that doesn’t exist with an impossibly handsome man performing heroic deeds and then seducing you into crazy, gravity-defying sex.”

Zelda gazed up at the stars. “I’ll have to think about it.”
