Title So Be It
Description and then asked, "When are you two getting married?" Suddenly I became interested in the blisters on my left hand, and disgustingly tongue-tied. Lucy, sensing my frustration, needled me. "He hasn't asked me yet, but if he doesn't soon make his mind up, I'm going to think he doesn't want me." "How about it Fred, shall I perform the ceremony right now?", Bishop Snow asked. Lucy grabbed her breath and exhaled slowly, "Oh, I'd like that", and she hugged my arm to her. "I guess I should be a good sport and go along with the joke. It won't mean anything," I thought to myself. Flippantly I said, "Sure, why not." To the tune of the water rolling below us, Bishop Snow said, "Do you Lucy Allen, take this man, Fred W. Cox, Jr., to be your husband till death do you part, to love, honor, and obey?" "I do." "Do you Fred W. Cox, Jr. take this woman, Lucy Allen, to be your wife and helpmate till death do you part, to love and cherish her?" There was silence. "Well, do you?" he prompted. "Sure," I answered quickly. "You may kiss your bride," Bishop Snow answered. I hastily brushed her cheek and said, "Well, I've got guard duty at midnight, so I'd better be on my way." I shook Bishop Snow's hand and walked Lucy home to her parents. My mother was still awake when I stopped for my rifle, but I didn't think it important, so didn't mention the meeting on the bridge. -28-
