Chapter 1: Beginnings, part 1. New Year's Eve.

It was New Year's Eve on Tracy Island and the whole family had gathered together on the beach waiting for midnight to strike and Brains' annual fireworks display to start. Virgil and Scott were sitting on a towel with a whiskey in their hands, engrossed in a conversation about a recent rescue. John sat next to his father, both quietly staring up at the stars. Gordon stood next to the barbecue stuffing a hamburger into his mouth, while his Grandma reprimanded him for eating his food too fast. Kyrano sat on a beach chair, while his daughter Tin-Tin sat next to him with her hands in his. Alan however, unseen, was leaning against a tree, staring nervously at Tin-Tin.

Alan pushed his hands through his hair, breathed in and out, and then began pacing. 'You can do this, you can do this,' he kept saying to himself over and over. Glancing at his watch he saw that only ten minutes remained of the year. 'Right, it's now or never,' he said to himself firmly, turning towards Tin-Tin and walking over to her. "Tin-Tin, please may I talk to you for a moment?"

"Of course, Alan," Tin-Tin replied, taking his hand. Alan helped her out of her seat and led her to the trees. Tin-Tin looked in Alan's eyes and could see that the young man was nervous. "What's wrong sweetie," she asked kissing his cheek softly, while sliding her hands through his blonde hair.

Alan looked deeply into her eyes. "Tin-Tin, this past year since we started dating as been amazing, you are the light of my life and I love you with all my heart and soul."

"I love you too Alan," she replied with a smile.

"I know we are both 18 and we have so much to experience, but I know that whatever life may throw our way, the ups and the downs, well, I know that I want to spend them with you," Alan paused, pulled a small box out of his pocket and dropped down onto one knee. "Miss Tin-Tin Kyrano, will you do me the honour of making me the happiest man alive... Will you marry me?"

Tin-Tin dropped to her knees and kissed Alan's lips passionately. "Yes Alan. Yes, of course I will!"

They both kissed until the sound of fireworks began shooting into the sky. Alan smiled and looked deeply into Tin-Tin eyes. "Happy New Year."

"Happy New Year Alan!" She beamed, pulling him into a loving embrace.
