All the kids had a blast at prom, and came home with a ton of prom pics!
Mara slid her hands into Kristopher's golden hair, and pulled her body close to his again. As Kris stared deep into her hazel eyes he saw his future flashing in them. Their future. He and Mara, married and raising a family. Watching their family grow. Growing old together. He felt as though he would weep from the joy of the thought. He wondered if she felt it too.
"I love you Kristopher Rayne, and I always will. I would marry you today I could" she breathed softly.When they at last separated, Kristopher kissed her again and told her he had to leave, to have fun without him. Without another word he beat a hasty retreat. He had business to take care of.
Hoping Mara would stay at the club for at least another hour, Kristopher headed directly to her house. He didn't want her to witness what was to come. As luck would have it, he ran into her mother on his way up to the door.
"Mrs. Wolfford, I know we have never met, but my name is Kris and I am crazy about your daughter. I know we haven't known each other for very long, and I know we're young, and you're probably going to think I'm mental and all. But I promise, if you'll let me, I'll take good care of her forever. And I'll never stop trying to make her happy. Please, Mrs.Wolfford! Please, I'm begging you to give me your blessing. I want to marry Mara, and I want to do it tomorrow. I know it's sudden, but...."
"Mara, I'm sorry I bailed on you last night, but I had a good reason. I went to see your mom. I had to do this right." Mara gasped softly as Kristopher displayed the ring, encased in it's soft velvety box.
"Mara Wollford, I adore you, and I will never stop loving you. I want you now and forever. Your mother gave us her blessing. Will you do me the honour of being my wife?"
