"House Hunters"

   Luke and Laura have decided to get the help of a real estate agent. With both of them having such busy work schedules. They needed someone to do the bulk of the leg work when it came to finding a house. This agent came highly recommended by Luke's friend Aric.
*Real Estate Agent* "So what do you think of the house?"
*Laura* "It's nice but.... I think it is too big for us. Plus it needs a lot of work and updating. I prefer something more simple and with an open floor plan."
*Luke*  "I actually like the house. It has a lot of character and they just don't make houses like this anymore. The asking price is great for the amount of space."
*Laura* "This house could turn up being a money pit. I am just not willing to gamble on it. You said yourself that you didn't want to buy something that is gonna require this much work. "
*Luke* "I know Babe but seeing this house makes me want to pursue that need to fix it and make it my own."

*Real Estate Agent* "Well I do have several more houses that might interest you. I can show where to check them out online and then we can do a house visit if you want to see it in person."

*Luke* "I guess we could scope out a few more places. But if we don't find one better than this place. I say we go for it."
*Laura* "Oh! we will definitely find something better!" *She gives him that sly smile that means she will get what she wants and there is no way around it*
*Real Estate Agent* "Well if you choose to make an offer on this house let me know and we will get started on the paper work right away."
*Luke* "We definitely will. I appreciate you taking the time to show us this house at the last minute."

   Back at Laura's apartment they enjoy a relaxing evening together. Luke is watching TV while Laura checks out the other houses on her laptop.

*Laura* "What do you think of this place Luke? It looks nice and it's not too far from either of our work places. I say we check it out. Luke are you even listening to me?"
*Luke* " Yeah I heard what you said. I will email her tomorrow maybe she can show us the house in a couple days."

*Laura* "Don't you want to email her now? So we can see the house as soon as possible.  I feel like we have been looking forever and we haven't even found one house that we both like. It's been over 3 months since we started looking."
*Luke* " Just be patient the right house will find us. I don't think getting upset about it will change anything. Stop stressing out! I will call her tomorrow morning and see if she can show us the house tomorrow afternoon. Okay?"
*Laura* "Stop stressing out! Of course I am you seem so laid back about all of it. I feel like I am the only one who is really trying!"
*Luke* "Babe please don't get upset. I do care but you know how busy things have been. That's why we got a real estate agent. I am sorry I upset you."
*Laura* "I'm sorry too. You're right I just can't help myself. I get all excited and I want things to happen right away."
     Luke kisses her forehead
*Luke* " You know I love you. We will find something and when we do we will know it."
     Laura kisses him back.
*Laura* "I know...I love you too."
*Luke* "Pass me some of those crackers you made."
*Laura* " I made them this morning with parmesan and rosemary. You'll never want store bought crackers again. Plus they go great with this red wine."
   So after a little lovers quarrel things are back to normal now and Luke and Laura relish each others company for the remaider of the evening. Laura is excited and anxious to start this new phase of their relationship. Luke is still apprehnsive about it. Hopefully these two can work through it. Cause even if you have found true love relationships always take work.......
