“What is it?”
Brennan smiles and pushes the gift closer to me. It’s a small square box wrapped carefully in shiny blue paper, a gold ribbon tied tightly around it. “Why don’t you quit asking me questions and open it?” He says, a smirk on his face.
I take the box with shaking hands, surprises have never been my thing, and unwrap it. Inside the paper sits another box, deep blue leather with white trimming. “Brennan, will you just tell me?”
“Open it,” he urges.
The diamond is what hits me first, it’s small but nestled against the dark velvet lining it sparkles brighter than any other I’ve seen before.
