*Chapter 4 - The boy and girl's adventure*

The boy and girl had always dreamed of an adventure in the big Apple and what better time to do then on their honeymoon!

The Aeroplane took off and the girl's stomach  had that familiar twinge of excitement, they discussed their holiday, planning - as they wanted to cover as much as they could and they both had a 'to do' list! The girl loved Sex in the City and liked the idea of the tour and fancied a Cosmo! They wanted to explore the empire state building and take a helicopter tour and the girl wanted to look on fifth avenue!






They ticked off a huge amount until there were a few things left on the list, they took a yellow cab to fifth avenue and began 'window shopping' The girl {a BIG shoe fan} gazed longingly at that shop! 'We are here, I've only ever dreamed of this - quick, take my picture!' The boy obeyed and took a picture of the girl outside 'that shop'....... Jimmy Choo! The boy could see that the girl was almost hyperventilating from excitement and suggested they go inside! The girls eyes widened and she was convinced the boy could see small shoes inside them! They entered..... the girl held her breath and let out a small discreet {discreet from the shop assistant, but not from the boy!} squeal. She was here, she wasn't dreaming! The shoes had a magical Aura around them calling the girl to go and see....there they were! They sparkled and sat like they were royal subjects - they were gorgeous!

The shop assistant {looking at the boy and the girl somewhat suspiciously!} had sauntered over 'does madam want to try them on?' The girl held her breath again and remembered where she was, what shop she was in! before she could exhale and open her mouth, the boy answered for her....... 'yes please'...... The girl looked at the boy confused at what was happening 'Is he serious? Does he know how much they cost? Maybe he just wants me to experience trying one on!' The excitement was daring to take over but the girls head was in charge! The girl tried one on, In her head she was Cinderella and this was her glass slipper {having already found her prince} 'but we are not in Disneyland Rachel!' she told herself. The shop assistant {still looking nervous at the crazy lady trying on the very gorgeous shoe!} cleared his throat 'would madam like them wrapped?' yup, that's where we were - they just assume!


...Only this time, he was right to assume, the boy nodded like he was all too familiar with these transactions 'Is he mad? Surely it's a joke, a blimin mean one but.... before the girl could finish thinking the bag was in her hand - they were hers.....

Brilliant fairytale! I'd love to go to new york. What lovely memories for you two! We've never had a honeymoon, our daughter was 2 months old when we got married so we didn't bother. I think we'll have to wait another 5 years or so, until kiddies are at school age and can go off to visit granny for a week or two!
I need to get some kraft cardstock, loving it as a background. x

Oh what a fun memory and a lovely surprise for you from the boy.

Amy said...

I LOVE NYC! Such a great vibe there. Your story is amazing told in the third person! I too want to see those shoes :)

Sian said...

Now that's love! Maybe you want to keep the shoes special and personal? I could understand that.

You'd be very welcome to add your lovely story to the others on Storytelling Sunday Rachel. It's would fit in perfectly.

Oh how wonderful! Love your story and your layout. One question - do you have a picture of the shoes. That boy is a definite keeper.
