As Reese passed by the office break room, she noticed a small group chatting excitedly by the coffee maker. Dustin, one of her co-workers, had his arm around a nicely dressed woman she hadn’t seen before.
“Reese, come congratulate us," Dustin called out when he spotted her in the doorway. "I just asked Deborah to marry me and she said ‘yes.’”
Reese stepped forward with a polite smile and offered her congratulations.
“Isn’t it gorgeous?” Deborah gushed as she reached out her hand to show off her ring. “I can’t stop looking at it.”
“Very,” Reese agreed. It was an impressive ring with large stones and was clearly very expensive.
