He hung to every word being spoken by the sweetest sounding voice he has ever heard. Even after three years, this voice makes him mushy and weak in the knees. Before Sarah could finish talking she heard Michael voice exclaimed, could you please be my girlfriend? Sarah was caught off guard however she had liked him for years but was a bit shy about it. Sarah had never been with anyone . Over the years she has fallen for him so she was elated. She paused for a while to let it marinate, to make sure she was hearing right. She then said with a trembling voice and tears in her eyes, "oh yes Micheal I'll mar then she caught herself and changed it to, " yes Michael a thousand times yes, i'd love to be your girlfriend". They both hang up smiling and chuckling. Sarah even began crazy dancing. She was so happy because she has been in love with Michael a while now but was too scared to act on it.

  It was three years ago when Sarah and Michael met at a wedding. It was winter and the small town of Chesterville was extremely cold. Sarah was so happy for her friends Matthew and Amelia. They have been together since first grade of high school. They have always been a sweet couple and everyone always knew they would get married. While there, thoughts running through her head, a smile on her face as she enjoyed watching the couple dance. Michael walked over and said "why is such a lovely girl like you here all alone daydreaming?" "Who says am alone, please leave me be, you are blocking my view" Sarah replied and then *rolls her eyes. "Sorry I was just trying to be nice, no need for the attitude, would you please dance with me or are you waiting on someone?" *Smiling " I can't dance " Sarah said. By this time she was blushing uncontrollable and Michael reach out his hand and she took it. They started dancing but Sarah was so caught up in her thoughts they tripped several times. She was wondering where this arrogant, talkative, slim, dark brown guy came from. He did look a bit familiar. "So you dance really well" Michael's voice dragged Sarah from her thoughts she even felt a little startled, he then said penny for your tnoughts. She was still acting out of it and he apologized for startling her and then ask her what she was thinking about. She asked him " have we met before, you seem familiar". Michael laughed and said yes , a year ago at the church camp reunion.She was introduced to him by her friend's boy friend matthew. At the time Sarah had just finished high school and was getting ready to go to university. Michael was the one she collided with and got drinks all over her. She was so embarrassed she stormed out early. At the memory she pulled from his grip trying to escape but instead hit into the waiter who had a tray filled with glasses of drink and it felt like deja vous. She felt the tears coming so she left as quickly as possible forgetting her purse. Michael ran after her but she was nowhere to be found, it's like she vanished. A day later Sarah's phone ran, it was an unknown number, she answered only to hear Michael's voice on the other end. She started to panic, not knowing what to do or say. Michael was there saying hello about a minute and just as he was about to hang up he heard her voice came in on the phone " hello, who is this?". He said "it's Michael, the guy from the wedding, I got your # from Matthew". " I have your purse and I would like to take you for a drink" " on me this time " he chuckled. This made Sarah a bit annoyed or irritated and she shouted "no, just tell me where I can pick up my purse please" " I think I have had enough drinks to last me a lifetime". How about dinner then, Michael asked. Sarah's mouth ran leaving her mind and before she could stop herself she heard herself say " I am available tomorrow".
