You ask when I first knew I loved Marie. That's easy for me to say, mon amie.

It was the afternoon of my twenty-seventh birthday. I had quietly entered her garden through the arbor entwined with pink roses. Their fragrance was divine, and I stood watching her.

She sat at a small table, a bright orange chapeau shading her eyes, her dark red tresses caressing her shoulders. She was sewing something on a white silken handkerchief.

Moving closer, I saw her looking lovingly at her stitches. Initials. Mine!

She looked up, saw me and smiled.

That's when I knew.
