Hi-- my boyfriend always teases me and says i live in a
fairy tale.. so for our anniversary i wrote him our love
story in the form of a fairy tale.. it's all the truth :)
On September 26th 2009 she found him sitting on a table in
the back of a local beach bar. His friends were bizarre to
say at the least- in fact, one was dressed as a lion... As
the lion entertained the Serbian Princess the boy and the
girl frolicked around...The night seemed to last forever,
yet end so quickly. All she knew was that he lived on a
magical island and worked as a protector of humans in the
ocean. Would she ever see her prince again?
but of course... "cupid only misses sometimes" So, that next
day the universe had her taking a path she normally never
took, and just like magic he was in the road. Just in case
she would have missed him, they made sure he was holding a
large surfboard. The one he won, the same night he won the
girl. Later she would learn that the universe regularly
provided him gifts as he embarked on his journey to the
special island. Soon they would learn the girl cared for
children near where the boy lived. At last, they meet again.
At the time she did not notice, but the town was called-
"island in the hills" it had been enchanting all along. So,
it went on like this for the next few days. The girl was
instantly captivated. Understand for her it was not just a
giddy, lustful feeling, rather, a deep, intense, calm
feeling. The feeling she had always longed for. The days
were passing, and soon he would leave the city for the
island. Her only wish was to love him until he did- and that
is just what happened. So, the morning came and they kissed
goodbye. Just like that she walked away, he rode off into
the sun and she did not look back once.
Days passed.. the next conversation went something like
boy "i love that you say that.i want you to know how special
it was having you run into my life. i wasn't sure about you
at first but every chapter i opened up in the book of jackie
was so beautiful, i feel the same way, i can't get you out
of my head. i love the way you put your words together.
girl "seriously..when i would drive home i couldn't stop
thinking about the stuff you said.. i can never be around
someone for a lot of time with out getting annoyed, but with
you i just felt comfortable and at ease..it was such a good
feeling..i don't want to lose you"
boy "maybe i'll come home in December this year"
or maybe the girl will take a journey to the
island....against all odds she decides to go. she never did
know how to listen to advice, she could only hear her heart,
and thank goodness for that. On that island she saw an even
more beautiful side of the boy.
one may say he was brave, witty, adventurous, & strong. one
may say she was gracious, filled with love, and more
introverted. the thing is though- they were reflections of
each other in their own special way. the had all the same
qualities, and what they did not share created a perfect
balance. he was himself and she was herself, and they both
respected that. it was the secret recipe to what they would
one day build.
again though- their time had expired. she had a dream of
changing the world in subtle way, she would return to the
city to study. the boy had a glow inside him, he would go to
the next island and follow his own dreams. when you love
something it's okay to set them free. however, this time
when she left that island- tears filled her eyes. tears of
joy for everything she had experienced and tears of fear
that she would not like the way missing him would feel.
still no rules or expectations- what's meant to be will be.
Over the next few months, they lived their lives. So far
apart, but for her she took a little piece of him from that
island.. she carried it in her heart and you could see it
through her eyes. One day they would meet again. The
difference now was that they did not share a fantasy life on
a magical island, instead they lived fast paced lives in the
land of the wild. She never knew what would happen, she just
knew he was special and was happy to know him at all. She
enjoyed watching him live in this wild land, he was silly
and it was allowed because she already saw him in the purest
form. Easter came, it was a beautiful day- and God told her
was okay to let herself love him fully- He even shook the
Earth, and they were the only ones he lifted up. He took her
to where he went to college, and she saw a new side of him.
She liked that one too. He took her to a ranch, and again
there she saw a new side. Was he a chameleon?
Next, they took an adventure to a MAGiCAL FoREST, three days
of beauty,music,love,creativity,peace,nature, and ultimate
happiness and joy. he might not remember but they got
married in the stars that night and things would be from
different from there on out.
They returned to the city and moved into a castle on the
beach. They learned that with everything they did, they
could dream bigger and that's just what they did.
the rest, well it's still unwritten.
