Welcome to StoryLearning Spanish! Follow the transcript below as you listen. Ready to take your Spanish to the next level? Register for our next StoryLearning Challenge at: http://www.storylearningchallenge.com Nora encontró a sus amigos en el bar de enfrente, pasándoselo muy bien. Alma y Sandra se divertían bailando arriba de una mesa. Sus pasos de baile eran muy interesantes. —¡Ya ha llegado nuestra amiga! —gritó Alma a la camarera—. ¡Y no tiene un anillo! ¡Traiga el champán, por favor! Nora sonrió a todos y abrazó a Alex. —¿Cómo estás? —le preguntó él. —Bien —dijo Nora—. Mejor que nunca. Tú debes saber cómo me siento, también has renunciado a tu trabajo hace poco. —¡¿Has renunciado?! ¡Qué bien! —exclamó Alex—. Se siente genial, ¿verdad? O sea que, con Marc… —Todo ha terminado, sí —dijo Nora—. En el plano laboral y en el plano personal, todo ha terminado. —Qué bien —dijo Alex—. Sinceramente, me alegro por ti, Nora, y no lo digo porque tú me gustas… Aunque es obvio que me gustas. Lo digo porque quiero que seas feliz. Realmente lo mereces. E incluso si luego de este viaje no nos vemos más, yo estaré feliz si tú estás bien. Nora sonrió. —De hecho… no me gustaría dejar de verte —le dijo—. Tengo algo para proponerte. —No me digas que me propondrás matrimonio —dijo Alex. —No, ja, ja —rio Nora—. Ya son muchas propuestas de matrimonio para una noche… Te quería proponer, ya que los dos estamos desempleados, si quieres empezar una empresa conmigo. —¡¿Una empresa?! —exclamó Alex—. Me encantaría, tengo muchas ganas de empezar mi propio negocio. ¿Qué tienes en mente? —Bueno, ya que a los dos nos gustan los idiomas —dijo Nora—, estaba pensando en algo relacionado con eso, con los idiomas. Un sitio web, una app… quizá historias en distintos idiomas, para que la gente aprenda leyendo… o escuchando. —Me encanta —dijo Alex. En ese momento, una camarera se acercó con varias copas de champán. Nora y Alex tomaron una cada uno. Louis y Bianca también agarraron las suyas. Finalmente, Alma y Sandra bajaron de la mesa y tomaron sus copas. Los seis formaron un círculo. —Chicos, me habéis hecho muy feliz en estos días. —A mí también —dijo Sandra. —Realmente este viaje es el mejor de mi vida —dijo Louis. —¡El primero de la mía! —dijo Bianca—. Y será difícil superarlo. —Muy difícil —dijo Alex. —Los quiero mucho a todos —dijo Nora. Entonces, los seis se miraron y, sonriendo, juntaron las copas, mientras decían al unísono: —¡¡SALUD!! _Glossary_ pasarlo bien: to have fun. paso de baile: dance step. mejor que nunca: better than ever. plano laboral: work-related. plano personal: personal level. desempleado, desempleada: unemployed. empresa: company. negocio: business. aprender: to learn. al unísono: simultaneously, in unison.
