Texas didn’t compare to the bay, it was home.
Her parents begged her to come and visit for the holidays, so she did.
Her family and friends greeted her in.
It was nice seeing familiar faces after a year away from home.
Once everyone left, her parents had a special surprise for Nancy.
“Honey, we know your life is in Texas but you can come back anytime. Your father has a job waiting for you at his office and you can attend Berkley. It would mean the world to us if you stay.”
After seeing Mark earlier she secretly wanted to stay.
“Oh Mom, I don’t know. There’s a lot to think about.”
Suddenly Mark walks out of her room with a ring box in hand.
“Nancy, will you please stay?”
Speechless, she turned to her parents and they smiled with approval. Without thinking twice she turned to Mark, “Yes! I’ll stay!”
