Rose is convinced that her boyfriend is going to propose to her, but on her way to meet him, the unexpected happens.

Rose had just finished her shift at the factory. She couldn't wait till
later. She was meeting her boyfriend, Jason. She had an idea that he 
was going to propose to her. He kept hinting about weddings and stuff, 
so she knew it was only a matter of time before he proposed, but as she 
was making her way from the factory to head to the bus stop she was hit 
by a car. Her head was full of the idea that Jason was going to propose 
to her. She didn't even hear the car as she crossed the road. 

‘You all right, love?' the driver asked, but he was getting no response
from Rose, so he got out his phone and called for an ambulance. 

Hours later she was stuck in a hospital bed, unable to move. At least
she was alive, she thought to herself. Then while lying there, Jason 
walked in 

‘Oh, Rose, you OK?' 

‘Yeah, I'm fine.' 

‘I waited ages for you. There is something I need to tell you.' 

.'Yes,' Rose shouted so as the whole ward could hear her. 

‘You mean, you know what I'm going to tell you?' 

‘You are going to ask me to marry you, aren't you?' 

‘Rose, I don't want to marry you; I want to stop seeing you.' 

She couldn't believe what she was hearing. She wanted the ground to
swallow her up. 

But, why? You kept hinting at marriage. And we were doing so well

‘No, we weren't. I've been seeing someone else. It is her I want to
marry. I tried to finish it with you weeks ago, but I was afraid of 
hurting your feelings.' 

‘Hurting my feelings? Well, you have hurt them now.' 

As Jason walked away. Rose just kept on crying, eventually falling

The next morning when she woke, the events of the evening before flashed
before her eyes. She began to cry again, then a cheery face appeared at 
her bedside. 

‘What's wrong, love?' a male nurse asked her. 

That boyfriend of mine – well, ex-boyfriend. He dumped me last night.
He's only marrying someone else.' 

‘Jason is marrying someone else?' 

‘How do you know his name is Jason?' 

‘I saw him at your bedside last night. I went to school with him. You
are not the first girl who's heart he has broken.' 

When Rose got out of hospital she had a few weeks on the sick, then
started back to work, but on the way there she had a surprise. 

‘You all right?' someone said to her. 

‘I'm fine. Off to the hospital to start your shift, are you?' 

‘No, I've just finished. You busy tonight?' 

Rose had to think for a minute. Of course, she wasn't busy, but she
wasn't going to let him know that, was she? 

They agreed to meet at the cinema that night. Rose couldn't wait. He was
so good looking – better looking than Jason. She began to wonder what 
she had ever seen in him, but they did have some good times together,
