Will you marry me?

It is now, September 15, 1998. I decide to visit Chimney Rock Park. I have always loved sitting under trees, therefore, I sit under the shaded area. I sit there for about an hour, and just as I was about to get up, I see a blue mustang pull up right next to me. I watch closely as the figure opens the car door and get out. For some reason they're hiding their face. I couldn't wait any longer so I drive back home in my black Nissan car. I sit on my front porch stairs and rest my head in my two hands. A ladybug from a tulip flies up in the sky and goes onto my shirt. It flies north and as I was looking down at the road, the sun was suddenly blocked. I look up and I see....Johnny holding a rose out to me. My heart races with excitement, and I could hardly breathe. " Johnny?" I ask.

" What're you doing here?" I ask confused.

" I've been waiting for this day for a really long time," he smiles.

" Wait!" I exclaim, " that note was from you?"

" Yeah, I guess you never opened it."

" I did," I say, " I just didn't know who it was from."

" Yeah, you did know who it was from, that's why you sat under that tree in Chimney Rock Park."

" What?"

" Did you not realize, that's where I told you I loved you."

" Oh my goodness!" I get up hugging him, " you're right. I guess I didn't notice."

" Come on Dawn," he laughs, " don't tell me you forgot me already!"

" No... I didn't."

" Well," he replies hold my hand, " I have never forgotten about you."

" Oh Johnny!" I laugh.

Johnny kneels on his right knee, and takes my hand, " Dawn....will you marry me?"

My heart begins to race so fast, it feels as if it's about to pop right out of my chest. Tears fill my eyes and I answer," Yes, Johnny! Yes!"

He lifts me up and kisses me. It's been four years since he's kissed me and it feels as if he hasn't had anotherr girlfriend ever since. He rests me gently on the sidewalk and takes something out of his bag. "When were at the dance, four years ago, Sandy took these pictures of us. I wanted you to have them."

I take the pictures and look at them for a few good minutes. It showed me and Johnny slow dancing. Then he handed the other one, and it showed me and Johnny kissing each otherr in the rain."

I laugh, " I remember when I thought that moment was like a movie!'

He smiles, " Dawn, I love you."

" I love you too," I reply, " I've fallen in love with you, but I always thought it would've been....anyone but you."

This is one of the best novels for a teenager. I don't know how old you are, but this is definitely above your reading level. You have a good writing sense, and this is good. It could have a little work on it and add more in between characters, but it's really good. Good Job.:)
