She gazed at the fishes inside the misty water. She pulled off her boots and rolled up her pants. With a boot in each hand, she quickly put her feet inside the icy water, trying to ignore the freezing temperature. She closed her eyes, let out a sigh and could hear faint sounds of quickly flowing water.

“Alice!”, he called out

“Huh..”, she opened her eyes

“How many times have I told you not to go alone? You don’t know swimming!”

She winked at him, “I have grown up, bro. You need not worry”

She shivered uncontrollably. She gulped deep breaths and started shaking her legs to get warmth.

“Get out of there right now”, he shouted

Without uttering a single word, she got out and sat on the nearby bench, looking at the swiftly flowing water.

She murmured, “So all set for the big day?”

He smiled, “Yes, a bit nervous though. Well, you know what?” His face lit and he looked at her, “The sister gets a present from her brother on his wedding. So what do you want?”

She opened her mouth and suddenly bit her lip, “Nothing”. She smiled, “Just be happy.”

She looked at the sky. It was twilight, “I think we should go home.”

She got up and started walking. He called out and smiled, “Alice, I will be always there for you.”

She turned around and winked, “I hope you remember this present even after your marriage.”
