2100AD

Kneeling, with his right hand stretched towards her, speaking confidently with shiny bright eyes, Prabhu asked, “Kaylee, will you marry me, the nerdy nomad madly in love with you?”, while she stood speechless at this sudden surprise, welling her eyes up with uncut diamond-like tears of joy.

After a brief moment of silence that appeared eternity, she nodded, making Prabhu jump up in jubilation.

“It would be worth my eyeteeth to fetch an exquisite diamond for precious you”, whispered Prabhu in Kaylee’s ears while giving her a tight embrace before turning to the voyager that would take him to Saturn, planet rumoured to have rain of diamonds, in his quest to find the possibility of unique destination for space tourism.
