“Is that Crystalline?” Josh asked.  “I ordered you not to…”

“You’re clear as glass.”

He scratched a spot on a head full of luscious black hair and asked, “Huh?”

“You proposed to me twice. I said no.”

“If I ask you again and you say no, I’ll walk!” he said with a scowl. “And I expect a key to your place…”

“I have a job and own my home. You don’t.  What I lack in my life is a man who respects me.  Goodbye, Josh.  Is that crystalline enough for you?”

I turned away from him, never looking back.
