He:
“K, will you marry me ? Please ? I need your citizenship….”

I blushed in spite of myself.

  3. No. If he had been able to find one though, he would have. Actually I think he would have done pretty much anything I would have asked him, if he thought I might say yes. He needs it badly it seems =).
