Nick showed Greg the ring the same day he bought it.|
It was traditional, gold band with a princess-cut diamond solitaire in the middle.
Everybody in the lab was happy for him, even Greg put on a happy face.
The girl was nice, a down-home, very friendly and super-sweet thing that most people expected a boy from Texas to marry.
When Greg gets home he find himself at a loss, his best friend, one time love and now he had to play best friend, just because of a damn diamond.
Nick walked away and so can he, just walk away.
