I know that you guys are waiting with bated breath for the next installment of Lane’s Girl (you are, aren’t you?), but today instead of posting a story about adultery and death and trying to raise a child on your own I thought I would tell you another story. A love story. And tomorrow we’ll get back to Lane’s Girl, and the somewhat different love story there.
Once upon a time (because that’s how all good love stories start, right?) there was this girl. Let’s call her Rebecca. And she wanted to go off and have adventures and live life without worrying about anyone else. There was also this boy – we’ll call him Lane. Lane was already living his life without worrying about anyone else. When Lane met Rebecca, he kind of scared her off at first, because she didn’t want to have to worry about him, but Lane was persistent and wouldn’t take no for an answer. He very patiently helped Rebecca through a bad time in her life, when the adventures turned out to be more like stumbling through the dark, and taught her many things about who she was and what the world was like, and then he told her he loved her. And Rebecca loved him too, for his patience and his kindness, and his fighting spirit. So they grew together and helped one another and occasionally they didn’t see eye to eye, because two people never can all the time. They had adventures and moved halfway across the country and had to learn to rely on only each other for a time, and their love grew and grew. And then one day Lane asked Rebecca to marry him, and she said yes, of course. And so they planned and they purchased and they invited their families and they got married.
And today they have been married for Four Years 🙂
And they will live happily ever after (because that’s how all good love stories end, right?)
