It’s been so long since their first date they can’t even remember what they did. It was probably spent at the movies or holding hands at the mall, and it was definitely chauffeured by one of their moms. I mean, when you are in the 8th grade – what other options are there? From 8th grade and throughout their teenage years they were boyfriend and girlfriend and there isn’t a memory of high school that doesn’t have the other in it. When it came time for college at the end of the summer, Lauren figured it was time to spread her wings and see what else was out there. Nobody finds their soul mate at 13, right? …
Life moved on. New friends, new experiences, she had boyfriends, he had girlfriends. They’d become one another’s past. The past always would seem hauntingly close when they’d run into one another on school breaks. Locking eyes across a crowded room, there was still an electricity there. But time went on and nothing ever came of it. Until… one day while at school, Lauren received an unexpected phone call from a friend letting her know Tyler’s dad had been injured in a serious welding accident. Her first instinct was to call Tyler, but she knew he was probably bombarded with a million things at that point and didn’t want to bother him. So she sent him a text to reach out and let him know she was thinking about him. To her surprise, he texted back. Not only did he text back then, but they texted back and forth the next two weeks. When Tyler’s dad was finally released from the hospital she was headed home for Christmas break, so she went to see him. Walking back into his parents house felt like she’d never left, so many memories together and so much love that was still there. She realized she still had feelings for him, and after school was done that spring they gave it another try and never looked back.
Their love fell right back into place, and this last Christmas after exchanging gifts, Tyler told Lauren he had one more gift to give her. He got down on one knee and asked her to spend the rest of her life with him. Unable to imagine her life with anyone other than the boy she knew she loved at 13, ecstatically she said yes!
