Carmen interrupted me, "Yes!" he said, his voice rough with emotion.
"Really?!" I asked as I stood up, stunned.
Carmen nodded his head. "Really! Although, I probably should've been the one proposing to you!"
"Really?" I echoed. Apparently I was still stunned.
I was so excited, I threw myself at Carmen.
I nuzzled his check. "I am so happy right now," I told him.
"I've never been happier," he admitted, tugging me closer. Clearing his throat, he added, "So, how old are you anyways?"
"Me? I'm about 25... you?" I asked. There's so much we didn't know about each other still, I thought absently.
"Oh... you know... over 30..." he hedged.
"How much over 30?" I asked, narrowing my gaze. He didn't look that old... (AN: So, he came to us with 4 days left before he was an Elder thanks to being an Adult when he first started tending bar. I reset him age to the beginning of the Adult stage.)
"Like.. 31," he finally admitted.
I sighed with relief. I gotta say, I was a little bit worried...
They cuddled in bed, getting to know each other, talking about their hopes, dreams and life ambitions.
"You know, I didn't always want to tend bar. When I was younger, I wanted to join the military," Carmen told her.
"Well? Why didn't you?" she asked.
Carmen tilted his head to the side. Why didn't he? "You know what?" he asked. "I'm going to do it! I'm going to join the military!"
The bistro is super popular, which means everyone eats there. I should ask around town to find out what people know about the restaurant and the boss.
"Oh, girl, let me tell you!" she started listing off problems with the owner, the quality of the ingredients, the food prep, and the list went on.
Valid concerns or a bunch of sour grapes? I wondered thoughtfully as I headed home.
I'm sure the Altos and Landgraabs loved my little lot! It was starting to look like a double-wide trailer!
I didn't care! I loved my home...
It was orange and green... both of our favorite colors! (AN: I randomized the color for the couch a few times until I found this eye-sore! But, it IS perfect for them!)
