It was cold and she didn’t have a sweater. He did and since it was three sizes too big for him, she fit in it, next to him. And so the friendship started. That was all it was because the guy with the tough look and the baggy clothes was not her type… but he was still her friend. Then came junior prom and they both went…as friends. It was there that Gilbert asked her out. Erica didn’t want to hurt his feelings, so she said, “I guess so.” Gilbert answered, “You guess?” So Erica smiled and said, “Just kidding.” She figured she would break up with him later. Her friends couldn’t believe that she was dating him. But the more Erica spent time with Gilbert, she realized that the Bad Boy Tough Guy Wanna Be Gangster was not really him. He was sweet, kind and made her smile. He was exactly her type.
Fast forward to a family dinner with her parents, where she ran into Gilbert’s family who happened to be at the same restaurant. Gilbert had said he could not go. He had to work. Gilbert’s mom told Erica she had something to show her. Erica went over to see, but suddenly Gilbert’s mom changed her mind. Erica turned to return back to her seat, only to find Gilbert on one knee blocking her. He had asked her to Junior Prom. He had asked her out. That night in front of both of their families he asked her to marry him. There was nothing to guess this time. The answer was, “Yes.”
