Matteo parked his flower truck at the usual spot in the square and asked Amelia to come.

After some hesitation, he finally agreed to propose to her.

“What’s the wait?” his friend Tommy told him.

“I’m not ready. I want to win the lottery first.”

“Fat chance! When that happens, she won’t be around anymore.”

For the proposal, his friends decided to put on a dance show where Amelia joined in the fun.

When he knelt on one knee and she said yes, he raised his hand in triumph.

“I did it,” he cried to the cheers of their friends.

As Karl staggered with his cane to the front of the store, he wondered if Victoria’s family still owned the place. After a lover’s spat, he left her without saying goodbye.

He went inside and found a woman rearranging the displays.

“Victoria, is that you?” he asked.

“Karl, what the hell?” she said looking at him incredulously. “What brought you here after all these years?”

“I want to tell you how sorry I’m for what I did.”

“You’re forgiven.”

“Perhaps we can start all over?”

“What a thing to say!” she snapped. “Better go before my husband beats you up.”

When Ryan learned that Billy got sick of Covid and had to be hospitalized, he wasn’t sure how to react. Should he take pleasure in the fact or take pity on him?

“I know that you don’t see each other eye to eye,” his mother said. “He bullies you to no end and makes fun of you. But it’s only being Christian that you wish him well.”

“Here’s a get-well card. Write something that will make him feel good. Make sure to give it an optimistic bent.”

“Dear Billy,” Ryan wrote aiming not to disappoint his mom. “Just stay positive.”
