Meet Sarah, our newest member of our Real Bride Series!
It was my freshman year of college. It was the end of August and I was riding my bike to a chemistry study group in the library. I heard a girls voice above the crowd say “Do you want to come to Bible Study tonight?” I stopped my bike, I had been looking for a Christian club on campus so I went up to the table. I made eye contact with a boy, I felt sparks run down my spine. I definitely believe in love at first sight now. He introduced himself to me as Lucas and I met everyone else at the table. I went to Christian Challenge that night, Lucas and I started talking about why I cam to ASU and what I was studying. He was on the leadership team so he did what he was supposed to do, he introduced me to a girl that had stuff in common with me. He wasn’t at challenge the next two weeks. I looked though, I wanted to see him again.
The third week I looked back to where he helped out at the soundboard in the back and he was there! Turns out he was a sun devil rep at ASU where he helped get freshman connected at ASU. So as a part of that he had been taking them to the Thursday night football games. Well, that night he ended up in my small group. Most of the people in my group were new so he was introducing himself to them. Then he looked across the circle at me and went “Hi I’m Lucas, what’s your name?” my heart sank a little bit but I smiled and said “My name is Sarah, it’s nice to meet you.”. We spoke that night about how I had been home schooled for 10 years and how I had a Texas accent. We talked for about 45 minutes that night.
Somehow we started talking about how I had lived in Japan. He got excited because he was half Japanese and his mom was from Japan. We spent the rest of the weekend together. He said he knew he liked me when that night we were playing capture the flag and my competitive side came out.
