It had been a year since Mike had asked Maria to be his fiancée. Maria was graduating from her university soon and Mike was due for a promotion at work. It had been a good year for Mike and Maria who had enjoyed every minute of being engaged. Mike knew the time to tie the knot was fast approaching, and Maria anticipated the day where she would adopt a different last name.
Mike felt the need to wait until after Maria's graduation. Maria had being studying history at the university, and was graduating at the top of her class. For two years she toiled away in her studies, determine to get the best grades she could possibly get. All her hard work had finally paid off. Looking back at it all, Maria felt like her time at school was brief. She couldn't help but to feel a little sad at the fact the she would no longer be a student of History.
Mike was real proud of Maria. He bought her an expensive purse as a graduation gift. Maria soon would have to repay the favor the day Mike receives his promotion. He had been with the company for nearly five years. During that time Mike was always the go-to-guy around the office. Known to always go that extra mile, even if it meant staying past five, Mike was a hard worker.
After finally being noticed for his efforts, word had gone around the office that he would soon be promoted to general manager. Just like Maria, Mike's hard work had finally paid off. Maria's graduation was a couple of days away. Mike and Maria were lying down in bed reminiscing about the past.
