‘I can see that look in your eye,’ says Rosemary.
‘What look?’ asks Ronald.
‘It’s the look of a man that’s about to propose.’
‘But, I wasn’t even looking at you.’
‘I’ve seen it before, I’m telling you.’
‘They never do look into your eyes. It’s always just above your eyes that they stare: your forehead.’
‘Yes. And if we marry, that’s’ two years of our lives… Gone,’ says Rosemary, clipping her fingers in the air. ‘Just like that. It’s a wasted enterprise. Do you hear me?’
‘Yes, well, Rosemary. You like a good celebration though don’t you?’
‘I do.’ says Rosemary
‘I do.’ says Ronald
Their gazes fix for less than a second – but it feels much longer.
Welcome to Rosemary and Ronald. Two characters who live in the novel ‘Find Mark’. This conversation is not in my novel but I did manage to earwig it today.
