Amanda and Andrew

How We Met

Me and Andrew met in high school. Sophmore year which was around 2010. We both had class together, it was always me and him only in the classroom with the teacher because everyone would always cut the class. Me and him used to talk just to pass the time. We’d pick on each other also. My one thing that always got on his last nerve was when I had long nails I’d tap them on the desk and that’d drive him crazy. The students would say that we actually hated each other during school. But secretly we both liked each other.

How He Asked

It it was May 8th and I just finished school. Andrew told me to get dressed up because we’re going to a new fancy restaurant that just opened up an Italian restaurant was very popular in our neighborhood. I knew he was going to propose because he picked out a ring 3 weeks ago before that, but he claims that it would not be there until May 22nd. When we got to the restaurant he was very fidgety I kept asking him what was wrong and are you sure you’re not going to propose to me and he kept saying no he has a presentation tomorrow morning for work and he was nervous about it. Finally after we ate dinner it was around 6:30 p.m. and they turn the lights down and I asked him why are they turn the lights down and he said probably the dinner they want to set the dinner mood right. I just shrugged it off thinking that’s true. Then I heard on the loudspeaker Marry you by Bruno mars. And I was in complete shock that my mouth hit the floor I looked at him and he was smiling with tears in his eyes he got up came around to me got on one knee and asked me to marry him. All I remember is a crowd of people surrounding us with  cameras. I was in shell shock I could not believe it I don’t even remember seeing his face all I remember seeing the ring, after I said yes and we kissed the owner of the restaurant came over to us congratulated us and gave us two free glasses of champagne. It was one of the most magical nights of my life that I will never forget.
