As I had known Shirley loved me like I loved her. She was a great deal of love that i needed to share with someone. Then I had told Shirley something I was sure about. Just as I had stopped kissing her, I told her, "I really like you Shirley. I really do."Then just as soon as I stopped telling her that she had told me, "I really like you too Toby. I really do too." Then we both sat back o the couch as she told me what she needed to tell me. She had told me she needed someone to go and find out about her husband. If he is dead or alive. Just then as she had finished telling me about the mission to find her husband in Africa I asked,"If I cannot find him will you marry me Shirley?" Shirley was shocked. She could not speak at all. then she finally told me "Why, Of course Toby!" I was very happy. i needed someone to lift me from this spot, like when I lifted Shirley up and kissed her. She lifted me up and I kissed her again. Her taste of Vodka was fading away but she still tasted like it.
