“This is what I hate about going on a tour,” Jeff told Ellen as the airport shuttle was approaching. “As we get to know each other, it ends and we go our separate ways.”

For two weeks, they traveled around France. They found they had a lot in common and shared the same values.

“I’ve fallen in love with you,” he continued.

“Don’t be silly, Jeff. We’re just two people caught in the moment. Trust me, when you fly home tonight, you’ll forget me.”

Jeff proved Ellen wrong. Many years later, they came back to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary.

    Very once in a while, we all need a happy ending to a story. It shows that sometimes, we do not know what may come knocking.
