"I'm getting married."
Becca could have whooped for joy. "That's fantastic Abby! I'm so happy for you, this is brilliant! Is it the same man you told me about at Mum's birthday?"
Abby nodded. "Yes. He proposed to me last week, with a diamond ring and everything!"
"I don't think I've ever met this suitor of yours." Becca grinned. "Who is he? I want to make sure he's a suitable match for my sister."
"Erm.." Abby's face fell. "You see... he's a gnome."
"What?" Becca gaped.
"That's right." said Abby. "I'm in love with a gnome."
