9th Six Sentence Sunday, asked and answered

Here's a turning point from Bride of the Living Dead. Daria halfway expected Oscar to invite her to move in, but he asked her to marry him and she fell silent.

            "I know it’s soon to think about marriage, but--"
            "Are you sure? You aren’t just saying that to get me to move in?"
            "I’m saying that because I want to spend my life with you."
            "Good answer." I stepped into his arms and laid my head on his chest.
