Ellen opened her eyes, blinked away sleep, and stared up at the white ceiling. Bits of some strange dream teased her before finally dissolving away. She had more important things on her mind.
She rolled over onto her side, a slow, wide grin stretched across her face, making her cheeks ache. The objects that evoked her happiness sat on the nightstand, glinting in the morning sun.
Ellen reached over and picked up Jake’s wedding band. She bounced it in her palm, feeling its solid weight. She turned it slowly, engaged in the way the tiny diamonds captured the light and sparkled. By the afternoon she and Jake would be married and the symbols of eternity would be encircling their fingers.
From the moment they met, Ellen knew that they were destined to be together and today they would join as one. They were a match made in heaven.
