New York City
Angel and DX sat in a silent corner of Battery Park. It was past 11 pm in the night. Children were playing ringa ringa roses in several corners. Sometimes even old people joined them.
Young couples were in separate corners expressing their love. Scientists were sitting in isolated corners wondering about their thesis as cold breeze motivated them.
The whole park was blooming with merry and happiness.
“You know DX” Angel said resting her head on his shoulders “When I was a kid, my grandma told me that I would meet God after my death, and he would judge me. It is one of the reason why I strove to do good. For without goodness and faith, where is salvation?”
“When I was a kid” she said smiling “At 11, this park used to be full of alcoholics, gamblers and gangsters… but now, I don’t even see the need of a policeman here! See the peace”
DX smelt a typical onion smell on her head. He suddenly remembered it was the same smell the rose that Disgaea gave him smelt of. Did Disgaea try to tell him something through it?
“Two unrelated incidents... surprisingly synchronized just now” DX said
“Oh synchronicity?” Angel beamed “It is a sign from God. He speaks from behind a veil. Grandma told me at this exact same park when I was eight!”
“So, what is he trying to tell me?” DX asked
“That is for you to figure out” she said. They enjoyed the cold breeze
“It’s time to leave” Angel said as she got up finally.
“I think I figured it out” DX said suddenly “Angel..... will you marry me?”
Angel stopped for a while stunned. She turned back with a bemused expression.
“Why?” she asked him.
“We can journey this life together, it will be a great adventure” DX responded with a smile
Angel was unable to resist her smile. She blushed. DX went near her and hugged her. Few flowers and dry leaves fell out of the trees surrounding them. A divine sign. They were too busy embracing themselves to notice them. Indeed God has power over all things
