Brooke and Chris
How We Met
Chris and I met 3 years ago through a mutual friend. We talked for about a month until he asked me to be his girlfriend. Our love is like no other, and he is truly my best friend.
How He Asked
So Chris joined the Air Force in May and left for basic training in August. Once he got to tech school in October, I was able to talk to him on the phone. He got to come home for Thanksgiving, and we took him back afterwards. When December rolled around, I was getting super excited because I knew i would see him for Christmas.. or so I thought. He told me he wasn’t going to be able to come home because he had to go to a different base to work there. So the weekend that he would have been coming home, my mom, his parents and I went to his aunts house for our anjali family Christmas (my mom tagging along was nothing out of the ordinary). So right before we were about to eat, we all went in the living room to pray. Everyone got really quiet and was looking at me. I feel someone tap me on the shoulder and I turn around and here he was. I was so happy he came home, even if my whole family was lying to me.
Later that day after playing dirty Santa, his aunt said we were going to play another game. It was supposed to be a bingo game, but they couldn’t get it, so they had to improvise from their 3 month plan. Instead, his aunt went around the room asking everyone for a number. When she got everyone’s number, she turned around and looked at me and said, “oh look, Brooke won!” She asked Chris to help her with the prize because it was “heavy”. He goes out of the room and comes back in and tells me to stand up. I automatically thought he was going to spray me with something because we play jokes on each other all the time. He told me that I was his best prize and that he wanted to spend the rest of our lives together, and I happily said yes.
