...oes, Daphne and Fred chose a lane. They had
their choice of lanes as they were the only customers who were
currently in the bowling alley.Bowling
was a way that Fred and Daphne frequently chose to pass the time.
Since the first few games they had played, Daphne seemed to always be
able to beat Fred at that particular game by a large margin. Tonight,
however, Freds score was s great deal higher than Daphnes.
She seemed distracted and appeared to have difficulty formulating a
response whenever Fred attempted to make small talk with her.Daphne,
Fred asked as they finished their first game with his score almost
twice that of Daphnes,are you okay? Youve seemed so distant
Daphne said with a sigh that sent shivers down Freds spine,we
have to talk. Its about my last phone call home. Do you remember
old boyfriend. Of course I do, Fred said with a look in his eyes
that said that he didnt like where this conversation was going.Yes,
Daphne said as she brushed a lock of hair out of her eyes,well,
hes back from Vietnam. Hes asked me to marry me and that I
would. All the color immediately disappeared from Freds face at
Daphne continued frantically,I love you. I always will. You know
that. Its just that...Oh, I dont know. I just dont see this...
