 "Where are you taking me?" Asked Monica. "Hello? Where are you taking me?"
"Just wait. We're almost there." Monica's boyfriend, Jacob, says.
"Well can I at least take this blindfold off?"
"No. Just wait. It will only be a few more minutes."
Monica is 19 years old. She has been dating Jacob for a year. Monica is trying to become an actress, but she hasn't had any luck yet. Jacob is also 19. He is trying to become a police officer and unlike Monica, Jacob has had luck. Jacob and Monica are madly in love and are never apart. Soon, Monica's life will change forever.
“Okay babe, you can take the blindfold off now.” Jacob says.
She takes off the blindfold and is speechless.
“Oh my god. This is where we had our first date.” Monica says and she turns to Jacob and smiles.
Jacob had taken her to a cliff overlooking the whole city. All the lights are lit up and the sun is setting, making the sky so beautiful with pinkish blue colors.
Monica turns to face Jacob as she says,
“I love you so much.”
She leans in to kiss him.
Jacob brought a blanket, a picnic basket, and candles. He put the blanket on the hood of his truck, put the food out, and lit the candles.
“Happy one year anniversary.” Jacob says.
“Same to you. I love you.”
“I love you too.”
After they eat, Monica and Jacob just lat there, looking up at the sky.
“This is so beautiful.” Monica says softly.
“Yeah it is. I’m so happy to be with you. You are the most amazing girl ever. I love you and don’t ever forget that.”
Monica smiles as a single tear rolls down her face as she replies,
“I love you forever and ever babe.”
After an hour passes, they get back in the truck and Jacob drives Monica home.
“Well goodnight. I love you.” Jacob says.
“I love you to. Drive safe.” Monica says as she gets out of the truck.
She watches as Jacob drives off and then walks into her house. Her parents are on the couch, watching TV.
“Hey sweetie. How was your night?” Her dad asks.
“It was great. But I am really tired, so I think I’ll just go to bed.”
“Okay. Goodnight.”
As Monica walks up the stairs her cell phone rings. It’s her best friend, Maria.
“Hey girl, what’s up? How was your date?” Maria asks with enthusiasm.
“How did you know I was on a date?”
“Uh, I was the one to help set it up. Duh.”
“Oh. Well it was great. But I am so tired. I tell you the details tomorrow.”
“Oh. Okay. Bye.”
Monica hangs up the phone and proceeds to her room. When she gets in her room, she lays on the bed. She can’t stop thinking about the night. The next morning, Monica wakes up to her phone ringing. It’s Jacob.
“Good morning babe.” Monica says with a tired voice.
“Oh my God babe!” Jacob yells.
“What? What’s wrong?” Monica says as she sits up in her bed.
“I got in! I got in the police academy!”
“Really? That’s great!”
“Yeah, I get to go tomorrow.”
“Well congratulations. I am so proud of you. We’ll have to celebrate tonight.”
“Okay sounds good. I have to get back to work, so I’ll talk to you later.”
After Monica hangs up her phone, she gets up and gets dressed. Later that night, Monica goes to Jacob’s house and picks him up. The go to a restaurant called, Pelicans. It was a steak restaurant that was very expensive.
“I’m so happy for you.” Monica says as she sips her water.
“Thanks and you know, I was thinking, maybe we can move forward with our relationship.” Jacob says with a serious tone.
“What do you mean?”
Jacob stands up and gets on one leg. He pulls out a little black box as he starts to say,
“Well I want to spend the rest of my life you and only you. So, will you marry me?”
Monica starts to cry.
“Yes.”
After they eat, they drive back to Monica’s house. As they get out of the car, Jacob says,
“Are you ready?”
“More than I’ll ever be.”
They walk in her house and find her parents in the kitchen.
“Well hello Jacob. Haven’t seen you in a while.” Monica’s mom says.
“Yeah I know. But I think you’ll be seeing a lot more of me now.”
“What do you mean?”
Monica flashes her left hand. The ring shines in the light.
“Oh my God, you proposed?”
“Yes ma’am.”
“Oh, congratulations to the both of you.” Both of her parents say.
“Thanks.” Monica says as she goes to hug her parents.
Monica drives Jacob back to his house and then she drives back to her house and goes to bed. The next morning, Monica has to wake up early to go to work. She works at a restaurant called, Weck’s. She was the host there. On her break, she calls Jacob.
“Hey babe.” Monica says.
”Hey. What are you doing?”
“I’m just at work on my break. How’s your first day at the police academy going?”
“It’s going great. I’m learning so much. My friend Mike is here also. They told us that we can actually start working tomorrow and I get my own patrol car and everything.”
“That soon? I mean don’t they have to train you?”
“Well, they said they like to do things hands on.”
“Oh. Well that’s good. I have to get back to works. I’ll pick you up around 6:00 p.m.?”
“Sounds good. Love you.”
”Love you to.”
Monica gets off around 4:30. She goes home and takes a shower to get ready to go to dinner with Jacob. After she gets done, she heads over to Jacob’s house. When she rings the doorbell, Jacob’s mom answers.
“Hello?” His mom says.
“Oh. Hi. I’m here to pick up Jacob.”
“Oh. I’ll get him.”
As his mom turns to go get Jacob, Monica starts to walk in.
“Oh. You can wait out there. I don’t want trash in here.”
Monica turns and walks to her car and gets in. Finally Jacob comes out and gets in her car.
“Hey.” Jacob says.
“Hi.”
“What’s wrong?”
“Your mom. Why does she hate me?”
“She doesn’t hate you. She just doesn’t like you.”
“Same difference. She better get used to me. I mean I am going to be your wife soon.”
“She will come around soon. Trust me. But enough about her. Let’s just enjoy our dinner.”
“I am nervous to start already tomorrow.” Jacob says.
“Don’t be. You’ll do great.”
“I hope so. I don’t want to screw up the first day on the job.”
“You won’t.”
At the restaurant, they eat a little fast because Jacob wants to get and rest for the next day.
The next day Jacob gets up at 4:30 in the morning to get ready. When he gets to the station, everyone is rushing around.
“Hey. What’s the rush for?”
“Accident on I-40. Let’s go you’re coming.” His friend, Mike, yells.
When they get to the scene, Jacob sees a bus that is caught on fire. Jacob gets out of the car and walks over to the paramedics.
“Is everyone okay and out of the bus?” Jacob asks.
“I’m pretty sure.”
“Pretty sure? Maybe you should check one more time so you can be absolutely… “
Jacob got interrupted by screaming coming from the bus. He runs over there and goes through the flames into the bus. He can feel his skin burning.
“Jacob, Be careful!” Mike yells.
“Hello?” Jacob says. “I need you to yell so I can find you.”
Finally Jacob finds a little boy under the seat.
“Okay, don’t worry. I’m going to get you out of here.”
Just as Jacob reaches for the boy, the bus explodes.
“Jacob!” Mike screams.
They all run over there but can’t see anything through the flames. Mike looks down and sees Jacob’s badge on the ground. He picks it up and puts it in his pocket.
That night, Monica is waiting in her room for Jacob to pick her up.
“Where is he? He was supposed to be here over an hour ago.” Monica mumbles to herself.
 She tries to call him, but it went straight to voicemail. She is starting to get worried. Then the door bell rings. Her mom answers it.
“Oh my God.” Her mom says as she starts to cry. “Monica. Come down here please.”
Monica comes down the stairs and sees Mike and another policeman standing at the door.
“What’s going on?” Monica asks with a worried tone.
“Let’s go in the living room and talk.” Her dad says.
They all sit down and Mike starts to talk.
“Monica, earlier today there was an accident. There was a bus on fire and Jacob heard screaming so he went to go help the kid but… The bus exploded and Jacob was inside of it. I’m so sorry.”
“What?”
Monica said in a hushed tone.
Mike pulled Jacob’s badge out of his pocket and handed it to Monica.
“He would have wanted you to have this.” Mike said as he hands it to her.
Just then, it hit her. He was really gone. Monica started to cry. She gets up, grabs her keys, and heads drives to Maria’s house. When she gets there, she rings the door bell and Maria answers it.
“Hey what’s going...”
She was interrupted.
“He’s gone. Jacob’s gone.” Monica says as she cries even harder.
Maria invites her in and they go to Maria’s room. Monica tells her what happened. Monica ended up falling asleee7p there. The next morning, when Monica wakes up, she goes back to her own house. When she walks in, she sees her parents sitting at the kitchen table with a guy.
“What’s going on?” Monica asks.
“This is Robert Dillard. He works at the funeral home. He wants to help get all the arrangements.” Her mom says.
“Hi Monica. I want to start off by saying I am so very sorry for your loss.”
“Thanks.”
“So, tell me what you want for the arrangements.”
“Well I want him to be in a casket. Not cremated. On the stone I wan it to say Jacob Hill, Police Officer, Loving son, Fiancé, and friend, and then his date of birth.”
“Okay. We can do that. Well I will call you with prices.”
“Alright. Have a good day.”
After he left, Monica goes up to her room, lay in bed, and doesn’t get up for weeks. Then it was the day of the funeral. She got up and got dressed. She comes down stairs and into the kitchen.
“Hi honey. Are you okay?” Asks her dad.
She just nods her head. When they get to the cemetery, there are a lot of people there. Monica and her parents go up and sit in the front. The service lasted an hour. After it was done, Monica walked over to his coffin and looked around to make sure no one was around to hear her.
“Oh babe, I love you so much. I know we will be together again.”
Monica took his badge out of her purse and set it on his coffin. She smiles as a single tear rolls down her face as she replies,
“I love you forever and ever babe.”
She walks to her car and drives to cliff overlooking the city, where they had there first date. She turns off her car and just sits there. She thinks of all the fun times they had together. Than, she looks up and says,
“We’ll be together again.”
She turns her car back on. As she cries, she drives her car off the cliff.
