I find Jennifer asleep and sprawled out, naked, across my bed. And the view literally takes my breath away. She has the blinds shut, but light comes through a transom, causing diamond shapes to glitter across her body.
It’s like the universe is trying to tell me something. And in that brief moment before I join her in bed, I see flashes of our future. Me bent on one knee, asking her to marry me—a diamond in my hand. Her coming onto the field to congratulate me after winning my third ring—my last name, Diamond, blazed across the jersey on her back. Her handing me a baby swaddled in a blanket—adding another Diamond to our family.
