Most couples go to the movies for their first date, but Pedro and Jocelyn actually met at the theater where they worked. Pedro saw a beautiful girl with brown curly hair, a great smile and eyes that he loved. Unfortunately, Jocelyn was dating someone else, and so, they just became friends. And even when Jocelyn’s other relationship had ended, they stayed friends.
They would hang out, going to Disneyland, trying new foods and even going on random drives to Malibu. They would talk about their families, past relationships and about life. Pedro was Jocelyn’s guy friend… a guy friend who liked her, but Jocelyn didn’t realize it or was just not interested.
It was on a trip to Canada with a group of friends that the realization literally hit her. Everyone was play fighting and so Pedro and Jocelyn joined in the fun. It was there, where when the lamp light shined on Pedro’s face, that all she could do was stare. It was something about the glow on his face, that told her, she liked him more than a friend. But as most love stories go, nothing changed. In fact, they got upset at each other on the trip and drove back to California, not in the happiest of moods.
Jocelyn knew she was upset even more because she realized she liked him. They met up and told each other how they felt. But Jocelyn did not want to ruin the friendship. She did not want to lose her guy friend. But Pedro was in love with the funny, caring girl who loved to travel. So he persisted and convinced her to give their relationship a try.
Fast forward 7 years in this love story. Pedro had decided that he would propose at the Grand Canyon. It had been the place of their first road trip together alone, and for them it was magical and mysterious. It was getting dark and so Pedro made Jocelyn and his brother speed walk. He told them that there was a glowing waterfall that needed to be seen in the sun. There was none. Jocelyn finally reached Pedro. He hugged her, started reading his notes and got on one knee to propose. His brother was recording, still wondering where the waterfall was. Jocelyn had officially lost her guy friend that day, but she said, “Of course,” to the best friend she would marry.
