Julia felt her anticipation and nervousness mount as she waited for the train to arrive carrying her boyfriend, James. She hadn't seen James in three months.
Three months ago James left to join the army and had been in training ever since. Now he had a two-week furlough prior to being shipped to North Carolina for more training.
James had a surprise for Julia.
James got off the train and immediately found Julia. After a tearful hello, James got on his knee and asked her to marry him, placing the diamond ring on her finger.
Julia was giddy with excitement as she happily accepted his proposal.
After affections were shown, Julia shyly whispered,
“James, we're having a baby.”
James was happier than he had ever been, and so was Julia.
