It was now six months since Hope moved to Arlington. Hope and Asher had been dating for a couple of months but he never yet told Hope he loved her. Mainly because he feared he'd scare her off. This was the same for Hope. She felt the same way but she didn't want to sound too eager

One night, Asher planned to surprise Hope by arranging a romantic dinner for the two of them. He got dressed up really well by wearing a suit but decided to wear Converse to make his suit more him. Hope wore a silver dress with matching sandals and had her hair in loose waves. She also wore no make-up as Asher liked her with no make-up on

Asher had laid out a romantic candlelit dinner and had some Motown love songs playing while preparing dinner as he knew Hope loved Motown. Hope knocked at her apartment door. Asher answered the door and saw Hope looking really beautiful. He hugged her and breathed in her scent. He smiled, "You smell nice." She smiled, "Same to you"

The two of them were now having dinner together. Asher complimented Hope and told her how beautiful she was. This caused Hope to blush but she still managed to tell him he was handsome. Asher smiled and said thanks

He held Hope's hand and said to her, "Hope, I brought you here for a very good reason. There's something I've been meaning to tell you but I'm real nervous about saying it." He took a deep breath and was about to say it when they heard a knock on the door

Hope went over to answer. It was her parents and they brought a security type with them. Hope said, "Mom, Dad, what are you doing here?" Hope's parents told her they had been spying on her for the last six months and they especially knew her reason for coming to Arlington

Hope's father also said, "We also know who your father is." They then presented a picture of Mitch Logan, Asher's father. This meant Asher was her brother so Hope knew she couldn't see him anymore. Broken, Hope told Asher she couldn't see him anymore

What did you think of Chapter 11?

Do you think Hope's parents are lying?

If so, do you think there is still hope for Asher and Hope or will it be too late by then?

What do you think will happen in Chapter 12?
