THE CHOCOLATE PROPOSAL
While travelling Sarah and Lucas called in to Koko Black Boutique Chocolate Shop in Melbourne. They happened to be Sarah’s favourite chocolates. Lucas had previously arranged with the owner to arrive on a certain day, wearing certain clothes and asking for a box of their chocolates. Lucas told Sarah that a friend of theirs had asked him to buy a box for them. They then proceeded on their journey, travelling the Great Ocean Road and they stopped for the night at Apollo Bay (Beacon’s Point) This was to be the romantic night Lucas had planned. Even though Sarah was unwell he plugged on regardless!
He purchased a bottle of wine that cost over sixty dollars but Sarah was in no mood for drinking (so Lucas had to drink it). It was a cold night so Lucas lit a wood fire nearly smoking them out. Things were not going well! Then he asked Sarah if she would like a chocolate. Now this she could not refuse – especially her favourite Koko Black. He presented her with a box, she opened it only to find letters piped on the individual chocolates. She turned the box to read them – “Will you marry me?” they asked. There was a ring too – it was everything she ever wanted; she happily said yes (although not via chocolates) and Lucas happily polished off the wine.
