A charming complete story about Sarah, who had a stall at an antique market
Genre
romance
Characters
Sarah; Lisa; Mark
Synopsis
Sarah is infatuated with Mark, who comes to her antique stall weekly to find a Victorian cameo for his girlfriend. Sarah knows it is pointless hoping for a chance with Mark, but she is not interested in anyone else. Finally, she acquires a cameo and sells it to Mark, worried she will never see him again. At home that night, Mark tracks her down. His girl laughed at him and called the gift rubbish. It destroyed his love, so he gives the cameo to Sarah and asks her to wear it on their first date.
