Snow lightly frosted the trees in southern Alaska. "It's beautiful," Sarah thought as she looked at the winter wonderland. "Alaska is gorgeous, I have to get a picture!" Gus gazed at Sarah as she pulled out her Polaroid camera and took a quick picture of the scenery. Gus put his arm around Sarah's shoulder as he whispered, "Come on, let's keep walking."
As they arrived back at Sarah's work, she pulled out her photos and handed them to Gus. "What do you think of these?" Sarah asked. "They are stunning," gasped Gus. "You are amazing and so talented!" Each photo had its own personality. The angles Sarah took the photos at were perfect.
The 12 dates of Christmas...
"Sarah, have you ever thought about starting your own business? You could take Christmas photos for families," Gus explained. "Yeah, I have," started Sarah, "but it takes a lot of time and money. Anyway, are you ready to go to the Christmas party?" Gus smiled at Sarah, she smiled back.
Are you looking for Sarah?
"Welcome you two, come on in," Sarah's mom announced. Sarah looked at all of her family and their beautiful smiles. She believed that she could receive all the Christmas spirit she needed by seeing her family happy. As for Gus, he had a different idea on how he would get Christmas spirit this year.
"I will take her on twelve dates," Gus thought. "Each date will have a different surprise. I hope Sarah says yes, I would be filled with joy!" Gus spent days perfecting these dates. Finally, it was time for him to ask Sarah out.
Gus entered Sarah's work, his face was bright red, and his nerves kicked in. Gus stood still for a bit, he bounced around the thoughts in his head. "I am just a scrawny boy, and she is the most gorgeous specimen my eyes have ever seen," he muttered to himself. (Read the dialogue box now) Gus stuttered, " Uh, yes." He couldn't believe what he was about to do, but it was now or never. The guy pointed up the stairs and Gus followed in that direction. He walked up the stairs, and there she was.
