Two splendiferous (we looked it up, it's a word) years later
Jack paced the floor of his new apartment. He was now working at the docks in Brooklyn, packing and unpacking boats and was moving up in the company. He replayed the conversation that he had with Spot and Race in his head.
Jack sat at the table with his two friends at their favorite pub. Race and Spot (they went by Patrick and Anthony, now) were having a light conversation about the races or something like that when Jack put a small box on the table.
"What's this, Jacky boy," Race asked, raising an eyebrow.
"I know what it is," Spot said, smiling triumphantly. "I knew it, I knew it since the first time I saw her Save you from those crazy girls!
"You're gonna ask her to marry you!" Race said, catching on.
Jack just nodded a nervous smile on his face.
"Don't worry," Race said, sensing his friend's nervousness. "She'll say yes."
"How do you know," Jack asked, looking at Race.
"Please," Spot said, before Race could answer. "She's been in love with you for years."
"Yeah," Race agreed. "So, when are you gonna pop the question?"
"We've got a date on Friday, I was thinking of doing it then."
"Wh-Friday!" Race said his eyes big. "I won't have a lot of time to take bets, gotta go!"
_END FLASH BACK_
Jack was now walking towards Tibby's, where he and Tessa agreed to meet. The evening went off without a hitch. They went to one of Medda's shows then had desert at the Shultz's bakery and ended sitting on a bench in the small park Jack would sell in as a newsie.
"Hey," Jack said, hoping that he didn't sound too nervous. "Could I ask you something?"
"Sure," Tessa said, in her usual calm voice (little did she suspect).
Jack went down on one knee and knowing it was now or never, pulled out the small ring box.
"Tessa," he began, Tessa's eyes were already getting wide. "Will you marry me?"
Tessa sat stock still for a moment, just long enough to make Jack nervous.
"Yes," Tessa said, quickly and happily. "Yes I will definitely marry you, Cowboy."
Jack hopped up, picking Tessa up with him and then spun her around. Jack suddenly stopped and looked at Tessa.
"Did you just call me Cowboy?" he asked, in amazement.
"Don't ruin the moment," she said, giving him a kiss on the cheek.
"I love you," Jack said, to his fiancé.
"I love you, too," Tessa said, with a bright smile, knowing another chapter of her life was about to begin.
That's it; we'd like to that all who reviewed especially Eruanna Undomiel and Awkward Quail who have been here the whole time. We want you all to know we'll be writing more really soon.
