the love story

Seven years ago, Bianca met Gabriel at a CVS in the shopping center where she worked. She went over to CVS one night when she was closing to buy candy. While she was there looking for the candy, a guy came up asking if she needed any help. She gave him a weird facial expression because who needs help choosing candy?! Gabriel tried to be flirty but it wasn’t working so Bianca jokingly said he should buy her the candy, to which Gabriel agreed to! After he paid for her candy she went back to work, but something inside told her to go back to give him her number… so she did. She was super nervous because it was her first time randomly giving her number to a guy. Gabriel ended up walking Bianca to her car and the two chatted for a bit and parted ways; Bianca had a good feeling about this guy. A week went by and Bianca didn’t hear from Gabriel. As it turns out, he lost her number, so he showed up to her job to ask her for it again! The two began texting; and, as they say, “the rest is history.”
