LIL' ALLEN Chapter 7

It rather amused Allen as to how hard it was to get a straight answer from Emma.

He didn't know whether she was trying to be evasive or didn't want to answer the question about introverts and marriage.

During the visits to the different sights it gave them an opportunity to discuss things they would not be able to at work. While they didn't carry on long conversations about any one subject they were forced to engage in discussions about what they were viewing.

Allen asked her what her feelings were concerning marrying and marriage as an institution. At first she acted as if she didn't hear him but when he started to repeat what he had said she answered, “I guess it is necessary for those who are interested in it.”

Allen replied, “And who might they be?”  She retorted, “Those who feel they have the need for it.”  He followed with, “And who might they be?”

Again she was quiet for some time and just as he was about to speak again, she said, “If you want to know if I ever think of getting married the answer is, yes I do. If you want to know if I want to get married the answer is, yes I do and if you want to know if I would marry you the answer is, yes I would.

If you have any more questions you can keep them to yourself.”

Then it was Allen's time to be quiet. Finally he said, “Did you mean what you just said?” Her answer was short and to the point, “Yes.”

“You mean if I asked you to marry me you would do it?” Again her answer was “Yes.”   
 
Just to be sure Allen asked, "Will you marry me?”  Her answer came back, “Yes I will.”  He then said, “What do you think we should do about it?”

Her answer was a little longer than most for she said, “I think we should go back to the hotel, get our bags, drive to Connecticut and get married before one of us changes their mind.”

Allen said; that sounds like a plan.

It was off to Connecticut.  They stopped at the first court house they came to and bought a license. They were directed to the nearest Justice of the Peace and there they each said their, “I dos.”

As they left to find the Justice's house the words of a new song Allen had heard a few days before came to mind;

 "If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life,
Never make a pretty woman your wife,
So for my personal point of view
Get an ugly girl to marry you"

Allen thought, although he couldn't say Emma was ugly she was close enough to count for one. After that thought, he was ashamed for actually she was a pretty good looking gal.

The Justice had directed them to a place where they could rent a cottage. When they found it they thought it was perfect for them.

All of this happened within a few hours and neither one had any idea they would do what they had just done.

They left their suitcases in the cottage, and went out to eat for it was getting late.  Allen wanted to stop at the drugstore and Emma went in with him. He was trying to get away from her for a moment but to no avail.

He was about ready to leave when she went over and picked up some items, paid for them and told him, “Let's go.”  

He never did get what he wanted but he hoped he wouldn't need it anyway.
