Bachelor

“Alright, I’m off.” Nahum leaned down a pressed a kiss to Delilah’s cheek. “Have fun, but not too much.”


He grinned cheekily. Delilah took her fiance’s hand in hers. The tear-shaped diamond fixed to her engagement ring glimmered in the sunlight, seeping through the windows of their Canterbury cottage.


“Of course,” Delilah agreed. “You too. I love you.”


“I love you too,” Nahum replied, then they kissed again, before he padded along the hallway, taking his bag and departing.


“Where’s Nahum off to?” I asked Delilah.


“His stag weekend,” she answered. “We tried to team them up, so that we were both away at the same time. He’s off to a vineyard in the Hunter Valley. That’s why they’re leaving tonight, because they’re going a bit further than us.”


“Fair enough,” I replied, then turned back to the table. “What time are the hair and makeup ladies getting here?”


Delilah flicked a glance briefly towards her watch.


“Soon,” she answered.


Almost on cue, the doorbell sounded.


“Speak of the devil,” Delilah quipped, “unless Nahum’s forgotten something.”
