Once there was a man (named Jack Kirk) that was happy and full of life. Then 1 day he lost everything to a tornado that took his home and his wife. After that day he only can feel pain and sadness until he met a new woman to be there to change his life.

 

He met the woman (named Julia) at the train station at Westville Florida. She was about to go home after a day of work then she saw him sad and depressed at the counter. So being nice and all she sat by him and started to talk to him “what is wrong,” said Julia. “Nothing really that I want to talk about,” said Jack. She started to feel a little sad and Jack said “hey don’t be sad just because I am don’t u need to be”. Julia said” well I don’t like to see other people sad”. Jack said “well I can’t help it I lost everything from Mother Nature and I don’t know if I can live with the pain any more”. Then she smiled at jack and said “it’s not your fault it’s the people that make her angry,” Then for the 1st time in a long time he smiled and was thinking “maybe I can feel happiness again”. So Julia took him home and made him dinner. She said “I hope I can help you get your life back together”. Jack said “well I think you will make my life munch better but as long as I am with you and your happy I think a can feel alive again.”

 

After that night Julia agreed to let him stay at her house for a while until he makes enough money to buy his own house. 1st it started out as a friendly offer then it went to a romance. They started to take long walks on the beach and going to the movies they were coming closer to each other unsuspecting what will happen in the further. After about a month of dating they decided to go to the next step (moving in with each other). “Ok” said Julia. “I think it’s time we move into a bigger house”. “Ok, where do you want to live” said Jack. (Julia) “Maybe on the beach side, if it’s ok with you”. “Yeah it’s fine by me u just pick the house I will pay for it”. Then Julia smiled “=) thank you for all the time we had together I hope it will last forever”. (jack)”don’t worry Julia it will…. it will”.

 

Three weeks has passed jack and Julia still together but jacks got a really good job and they are thinking of marriage... they talked about it for 3 weeks now and things are going a little hard for the close of marriage. A week has passed for the decision for marriage and one day after work jack took Julia out to a very nice restaurant at the middle of the dinner jack said “Julia I have a little present for you so close your eyes and when I say open, open your eyes”. Julia said “ok jack” (Julia’s eyes closed slowly) (jack slowly reaching into his pocket picks up a black box then puts it on the table with his hands ready to open) “ ok open my love” says jack. (Julia opens her eyes and looks at the 5 peace 10 caret gold right and says) “OMG it’s so beautiful”. Jack says “will you marry me Julia”. Julia says “of course my love I will… I will.

 

Weeks after jack proposed to his lovely wife they went the church to get a proper wedding... both said yes and now are moving together to Howie. And three years after living Howie the decided to have kids two of them one boy and one girl. Julia and jack lived there next 10 years together they are both 46 now and getting ready to get a job together. But one day in Howie the volcano erupted and was flooding Howie in with lava and when there was one boat and one 3 can fit in jack said to Julia “go I’ll stay here and sacrifice myself to keep you alive” Julia was going to say “please jack don’t do this….) jack said interrupting her “just go there isn’t much time” (jack pushed the boats into the sea and stayed to suffer the punishment of his actions but the lava just stopped and harden in front of his eyes and then he knew that he was meant to live the rest of his life with Julia..)
