1) The Chute

My husband loves to fly model airplanes. We go out to the local airspace and I watch him fly almost every weekend.

We were out there with his family one weekend flying the planes. I was not suspicious of the fact so many people were out there with us because we usually go with his brother and Dad and his Mom and Sister-in-law usually come along.

He was flying his plane and dropped the chute and asked me to go grab it. I didn’t think anything of it because I usually grab his chute while he brings the plane down anyway.

I went out and got the chute and brought it back to him not even noticing there was a box on it. I went to hand it back to him and he asked if I looked at the chute. Puzzled, I told him "no." Everyone stared. I looked down at the box in my hands, opened it up and there it was. The most beautiful engagement ring ever.
