After a lot of thought, Andre decided to see where things went with Sofia.
He started off with a little snuggling while they were in the park.
A brunch date.
Playing around in stores shopping.
Having drinks and dancing… and first kisses.
Late night goodies.
And then it got to be more than just kisses.
They both loved art and music.
Although she was much more physically fit than poor Andre!
His family welcomed her with open arms. They were happy to see Andre so happy.
Finally, Andre asked Sofia to be his girlfriend. She laughed and said she thought she already was!
Even the Romance Guru gave them her blessing.
After spending so much time together and learning he not only liked being around Sofia but that he couldn’t imagine life without her Andre took her to The Bluffs. In one place if you know what to look for you can see the little hut that he lived most of his life in. He thought it was a sign that this was the perfect place so he read her a poem he’d written for her and asked her to marry him.
In addition to the fact that I just like Sofia, I made the decision to have Andre woo her after sneaking a peek at all of the four other possible contenders ages. Of them, all Sofia was the only one even remotely close to him in age. She’s just a bit older. I didn’t intend to do this chapter with so few words but I really couldn’t think of anything to say. It’s kind of a montage of their relationship. I didn’t really want a whirlwind romance for our Andre. I’m itching to give that girl a makeover.
