Candle In The Window:
After the disastrous dinner with his parents, Jennifer assumed Tom never wanted to see her again. His parents wanted better for their son. By night’s end, Tom could only shake his head.
The following day, Jennifer texted him. “Getting out of work late. On my way home, I will pass your house. Leave a candle in the window if you still want to marry me.”
Choking the steering wheel as if it were his parents, Jennifer squeezed the blood out of her fingers. At the next corner, she made the sharp turn…
She found a candle glowing in every window.
