Amber stood in shock. She couldn't believe hre eyes, there in front of her, painted on the building....was her and her brother. She felt her heart race. The Brown of their hair was perfect with the hints of gold. And her brothers smile was almost identical to the one he wore so well. "How did you do this?" Amber's voice was quite yet still audible.
Scott didn't answer her right away, in stead, he got out of the car and opened the door on her side. He took Ambers hand and helped her out. "When I saw you at the hospital with Chris a couple months ago i snapped this photo." Scott pulled a poleriod out of his pocket and handed it to her. "Then when i knew Chris didn't have much longer, i paid a friend to do the work. I hope you like it." Amber couldn't spek she only shook her head yes. Tears swelled up in her eyes. Never had anyone done something like this for her. Esspecially not a stranger. She barely knew Scott. She had only just met him.
Amber sat pearing out the window on the ride home. She kept thinking anout the image of her and her brother, there on that wall forever. (or untill someone paints over it) "Why did you even take the picture of me anyway? You didn't know me....and.......You didn't know Scott either did you? all of the things you have been saying has been a lie." Amber was suddenly creeped out b the fact that this guy had taken pictures of her in such and intimate moment, without even knowin who she was. Scott changed lanes and expressed embarasment.
"You're right..." Amber started to speak..."Amber just wait." Scott was pleeding and she knew that. "I wasn't being a freak or anything. I am a photographer. I snapped that image on accident. As you can tell by the angle i didn't even have the lens up to my eye. When i was at home looking through my photos from the day i saw it, and fell in love. . . . not with you or anything...but with the photo." Amber was starting to calm down. "I got the room number of the photo and went to see your brother in the Hospital...and then i saw you in person. I went to the funeral to see you."
Amber didn't even know what to say...This guy was really into her all because of a picture?
