"Hm, she must not be here yet."
We both looked in the direction of the driveway for his sister.
"Well, you could always call her. We can wait."
Both of us got out of the car and walked to the door.
He pulled out his keys and unlocked the door, letting me in first.
"Oh, hey, I have to show you something."
"Okay, what is it?"
He started to walk towards the stairs and turned to wait for me to get there.
Up the two flights and then down the hall to the far bedroom.
"Okay, I have a confession to make. She and the kids really aren't going to be here until Monday. I wanted this to be our first official date."
He pulled back the blinds to reveal the balcony overlooking the lake and on the little table sat a bottle of wine and two glasses.
Three glasses of pink moscato down, my hand in his, "Would you be my girlfriend?"
