Odin reached over the side of the bed and grabbed for something in his bedside table, “You want to know why you can trust me, Sharrie? I can show you something if you would like”.

“Yes, show me. What is it?” Sharrie asked as Odin leaned over her, revealing a small red box in his hand. He had owned this box for a little more than a year now.

“I didn’t tell you about everything I had planned for that weekend”, he whispered as he opened the box, “I was going to ask you to marry me”.

When the ED doctor walked into Sharrie’s room, he delivered the news they had been dreading.

They lost Emma, their baby girl.

She was gone.
