Chapter Nine: Five Years After

    "So what did you want to talk about?"Yumi said when they got to the other side.
    "This." and Odd got to one knee and held out a white box with a dimond ring inside.
    "Yumi will you marry me?" he said. Yumi just looked at him and the ring not knowing what to say.She didn't quite know if she was ready for this yet.She was already planning to be a lawyer and would be starting school in the fall.Was she really ready for a wedding so early?
      Odd as if reading her thoughts said "It's okay.You don't have to answer now.I know your not ready yet." he took her hand and slipped the ring on her finger "I'll wait for you as long as you want me to."

"Thank you Odd." she said kissing him on the cheek. He smiled at her and took her hand in his once more.

     "Come on.Jeremie and Aelita will be wondering where we are.We still have to go home and get dressed for the party tonight." Odd said. Then the two of the walked back to the from of the auditorium where Jeremie and Aelita were waiting for them.

     Yumi was in her office looking for a folder on one of her clients case.It was five years since Odd had proposed to her and she still wore the ring. She had graduated from law school almost a year ago and her job seemed to have started as soon as she got out. In less than a year she had managed to make herself one of the best lawyers in the city(sorry i don't got a name for the city she lives in yet).
   Yumi finally found the folder she was looking for under her desk.

   "Now I wonder how it got there?" she said

   "It's a wonder you find anything in that mess you call an office." Aelita said coming into the office and putting a folder on her desk. Aelita and her worked together and was also a lawyer.

   "Well with all the cases coming in there so little space to put everything." Yumi said

  "What case did you get now?" she asked

  "Something about a girl named Angel who was abandoned by her family.Well except her grandmother.She cared for her and left her everything from the money to the house she lived in and the apartments she owned"

  "So then what's the problem?"

   "The Will some how disappeared and they kicked her out of the house leaving her with pretty much no money or a place to go. I'm suppose to find a way to prove that her grandmother left her everything. But so far it's not so easy to prove without the Will." she said

    "Have you tried talking to the attorney who helped make the Will?" Aelita asked

   "Yes but he hasn't been seen since the grandmother died." Yumi sighed "This is one tough case"

   "You'll get through it. You usually do." Aelita said "Well I have to go pick up Emily from daycare.I'll see you later."

"Bye Aelita" she said.

     Emily was Aelita and Jeremie's one year old daughter.She'd be two next month. Yes Jeremie and Aelita had gotten married the summer after school ended and they seemed to be very happy together. Her and Odd on the other hand still hadn't gotten married yet. She hadn't been ready to get married yet but now since her career was going so well she thought she couldn't hold the wedding off any longer. Maybe this year would be the year they got married.Who knows?

Odd looked silently out the window of his office. He was deep in though he didn't notice Jeremie come in.

"Hey Odd. Want to go get some lunch?" he asked

"Sure.Why not?" he responded.He got up and the two walked down the street to the nearest fast food place.

     Him and Jeremie owned a sort of computer business.They made games and helped people with their computer problems.It took them a while to get the business started but now it was pretty successful.Him and Jeremie got some hamburgers and took them back to the office to eat.Most of the workers were on a lunch break so it was pretty quiet.

"So what have you been thinking about lately?Your always staring out your window anddon't notice if someone hits you on the head." Jeremie said

"I've just been thinking alot of Yumi and me lately.It's been five years and we're still not married.I don't see much of her anymore since she's got all her cases to deal with. I'm beginning to wonder if this will ever work out." Odd said

"It will Odd.Just give her a little more time. Who knows maybe this year will be the year." Jeremie said

"I hope so."
     XXXXXXXXX Back at Yumi and Aelita's office XXXXXXXXXXX
Yumi had went out of her office to get a quick before getting back sorting some of her files. When she came back she found that Aelita had still not returned. She went in to her office and found a man sitting in front of her desk. The man turned around.

"Hey Yumi.It's been a while since the last time I saw you." he said smiling.
