"I'm nervous" said Hellen. " I don't think she's gonna like me" she continued with an air of anxiety.
Without saying any word, Michel put his seat belt and started the engine.
It was a very long trip. Hellen slept during the whole trip while Michel went from music to music to stay aware.
They [[stop at a gas station]] or [[go all the way long]]
After three hours of driving , Millen pulled up at gas station.
"Wake up!" Michel said , whispering in her ear.
"Have we arrived?" said Hellen while waking up.
"No, I'm about to get some gas. Do you want me to get you something to eat?" Michel answered.
"No...nothing" said Hellen.
They resumed their journey...

Without letting her saying any word, she continued "I just wanna know whose my son's girlfriend".
[[living room]] , [[The maid came with a champagne and four tulip shaped glasses.
"can you turn up the volume" said Michel.
A match of basketball was passing on the Tv that was on.
"I would miss this game for nothing in the world" he added.
They started a debate over the game,...
[[the dinner ]] , [[relax]]
Michel took his dad apart.
"so how did you find her?" Michel murmured.
"Nice, beautiful,... she seems smart. Is it serious?" said Mr. Sundy.
"yes! I wanna get engaged seriously with her. I wanted to have your opinion, too" Michel said.
"did you guys talk about marriage, yet?" asked Mr. Sundy.
"yes, many times" Michel added.
[[the dinner ]] , [[In the dinning table, the atmosphere was quiet. No one talked.
Mr. tried to make jokes to relax everyone but no one laughed.
We only heard the sounds of cutlery on the plates.
[[relax]] After the dinner, Michel took Hellen out to relax.
"are you okey?" Michel asked Hellen.
"of course I am, don't worry" Hellen answered.
Okey let's go in ...

[[bed room]] or [[sleep]] They didn't look at every pothos. They were tired...
"You know what?" asked Michel.
"what" replied Hellen.
"I just wanna sleep besides you and hug you the whole night" said Michel.
[[the night]] or [[the morning]]Mr. and Mrs. Sundy stayed in the living room talking.
"I Know that you don't like her but give her a chance to show her who she really is. You don't even know her." said Mr. Sundy.
"I'm just trynna protect our son. I don't want her to break his heart like the previous girls did" said Mrs. Sundy.
"He's an adult now, he knows what he is doing" added Mr. sundy
[[the morning]] When Mrs. Sundy openned her eyes, There was an little light coming from the living.
She went to the kitchen and saw Hellen.
"'up!!already?" asked Mrs. Sundy.
"yes! I was trying to prepare breakfast for everyone since I ended up with the household" answered Hellen.
"Can we talk a little bit" Mrs. Sundy asked.
[[The discussion]] or [[kitchen]]"can you tell me briefly who you are?" asked mrs. Sundy.
"I'm Hellen Clark. I have two sisters. My parents live at Champaign, Illinois; I live at Chicago because of my job. I'm an artitst... I'm a painter. This works business works a lot at chicago, so I can help them with some money" answered Hellen.

"I will do the same. It's time for a good shower" added Hellen.
"okey. we understood, no girls" said mr. Sundy with a humorous tone.
[[kitchen]] or [[notice]]Mrs. Sundy followed Hellen in her room.
"Alright, I think it's obvious that I don't like you. I don't want a girl like you for my son. You will better take your staff and get out of my house." said mrs. Sundy.
Hellen was surprised and sad. She cried. She went to her closet and started packing her staff.
[[kitchen]] Michel looked at his dad so badly when the two ladies left the room.
After many hesitation, he asked his dad :"do you know why mom behaves badly?"
"No... No idea" mr. Sundy answered.
"Are you sure??... " Michel added.
[[done]] Michel looked through the window and saw Hellen crying with her staff.
She was ready to go.
" dad!!! look. Do you know what going on here?" said Michel, He was showing his dad what he saw through the window. He was so surprised.
"I don't know what your mum told her. But it seems not good." Mrs. Sundy said while heading to the living room.
[[come back]] or [[no way]]Michel followed Hellen who was getting in their car.
"I don't wanna know what my mum told. I'm just gonna tell you to stop what you're doing and follow me inside." said Michel with a very angry look.
"No... I just wanna go home" said Hellen while crying.
" I wanna tell my mum something but you need to be there" said Michel.
Hellen followed him in the living room.
[[the end]]"I don't wanna know what you said to that sweet lady and why. All I know is that when she get back in, you're gonna apologize to her. and find an excuse for what you did since she got here. maybe a joke or test... but find something." said mr. Sundy who was so mad at mrs. Sundy.
" I know... I'm ashamed of what I did..." said Mrs. Sundy silently.
[[the end]] "I'm sorry my futur daughter in law, I don't know why I acted like that with you. I hope you will forgive me. You have all my benedictions" Mrs. Sundy said.
"You have mine,too" said mr. Sundy.
Hellen didn't have time to realize what was going on. She turned and saw Michel on his knees.
"...WOULD YOU MARRY ME?...
They lived happily and had many kids.
