Last week has been a really an amazing week for me! On Thursday evening, I received a call from a guy named Alfred. Over the phone, he told me that he wanted to use my skills as a magician to propose to his girlfriend by the waters of Clarke Quay. How sweet is that! Alfred wanted it to be covert, clandestine even, because he wanted the element of surprise on that sacred day itself. Never in my life have I done such an incredible thing. Imagine, using magic to alter the destinies of two distinct and separate individuals. I felt as if I was given the sacred task of joining the two meanders of the river. I gladly accepted his proposal and whipped out my tools and weapons for the conquest for a man’s true love.

On Saturday, I met up with Alfred within Central Mall at Clarke Quay during which he passed me the thing that is the most precious for the evening – his proposal ring. I was pretty shocked yet happy at the same time; to think that a man would entrust something of that great a value and significance to me! It then came to me that the man had placed his trust in me and that I have earned it through years and years of good service and branding; it is something that cannot be achieve without effort and good business ethics. I held on tight to the ring for I fear that its being loss might mean the end of the world, for me, and for the both of them.
What a beautiful ring!
Then came the great scheme! I armed with the ring, pretended to be a street magician on the streets. I showed the crowd a couple of amazing miracles. I was stalling for time. Even though I might not look like it, I was pretty nervous for the proposal. I slowly inched my way towards Alfred and his girlfriend, of whom have just arrived, where the both of them were leaning by the rails of the river, admiring the night lights of Singapore Clarke Quay. I clenched my fist and approached them and asked them if they wanted to see something amazing. Alfred, with his brilliant Oscar-worthy acting, said yes and pretended that we were strangers, both of whom, on surface, have just met each other for the first time!

Then came the big reveal! I pulled out a wooden box, of which comprises the ring, and handed it to Alfred. He immediately showed it to the crowd and without any hesitation, went down on his knees and proposed in front of a huge crowd – will you marry me?
The crowd, having understood that this was a planned situation, started going wild, many of them clapping and cheering, hoping that Alfred and his girlfriend would come to a happy ending! The girlfriend was so appalled by the sudden proposal that she started tearing and smiling at Alfred in disbelief!
This was the moment of magic!
Alfred’s girlfriend, tiptoed her way in front of Alfred, and caressed his hands with great joy and tenderness. She had said yes!!! Everyone was elated to see Alfred’s plan had worked and everyone cheered for them as they held each other in their arms before us!
I am glad that magic has brought happiness to the both of them! It has brought me tremendous pleasure partaking in this great and fantastic proposal! Moments like this pushes me forward in my journey as a magician! I hope that this story was a pleasant read! Cheers!
