The Unasked Question

Everyone hurts. Everyone cries. Everyone goes through a tough time. None of this was what really made Jackson question everything. It was the not knowing that got to him. Not knowing if he would ever see Claire again. Not knowing if he could live without Claire by his side.

Jackson’s hands began to tremble at the very thought of being alone for the rest of his life. The thought of never being able to hear Claire say “I love you” to him each morning. He sunk lower into his chair and hoped that Sarah and Mattias wouldn’t notice his trembling hands or his moist eyes.

Jackson put his hand in his pocket and wrapped his fingers around the small box. Today was supposed to be a special day for him and Claire, one of the best days of their lives. He took the box out and Sarah gasped. He rolled it between his fingers before opening it.

Inside sat a small, simple diamond ring. So simple, yet it held so much meaning.
