For Elian, life was good. He was happy and contented. It changed when he met and fall in love with Megan.

He thought she was the one, but when he proposed, she rejected him outright.

“Get over yourself,“ she said. “Have you been drinking again?”

It could’ve been meant as a joke, but it didn’t come across that way. Elian felt insulted and led him into the seemingly bottomless dark hole of anger and bitterness.

Elian, to his credit, came to his senses and didn’t give up on his pursuit. He eventually won her over after overcoming his alcohol addiction.

After a night of partying, Becky had overslept. On the way to work, she went right past a stop sign.

“Sir, I’m very sorry,” she said to the cop who pulled her over. “I didn’t mean to do it.”

“You seem to be in such a hurry. What’s the rush?”

“Officer, it’s a life and death situation. I’m a surgical nurse and got an emergency call.”

Of course, it was a lie. The cop completely fell for it, though.

“Is that right? Come follow me.”

With the siren blaring, the officer escorted Becky to the hospital like a true celebrity.

It had been in the basement for some time gathering dust since grandma passed away.

“Mama,” Little Abby asked, “can we keep it?”

“I’m afraid not, honeybunch; there’ll be no space for it in the new house.”

“That’s no fair.”

“I know, but I tell you what, I found somebody willing to adopt it.”

“For sure?”

“For sure.”

“What grandma wants is for you to keep her memories alive like the many happy moments she shared with you while she sat at that wheel.”

“Can you do that?”

“For sure.”

“Well, it’s settled then. Your grandma will be so pleased.”

Matteo parked his flower truck at the usual spot in the square and asked Amelia to come.

After some hesitation, he finally agreed to propose to her.

“What’s the wait?” his friend Tommy told him.

“I’m not ready. I want to win the lottery first.”

“Fat chance! When that happens, she won’t be around anymore.”

For the proposal, his friends decided to put on a dance show where Amelia joined in the fun.

When he knelt on one knee and she said yes, he raised his hand in triumph.

“I did it,” he cried to the cheers of their friends.

As Karl staggered with his cane to the front of the store, he wondered if Victoria’s family still owned the place. After a lover’s spat, he left her without saying goodbye.

He went inside and found a woman rearranging the displays.

“Victoria, is that you?” he asked.

“Karl, what the hell?” she said looking at him incredulously. “What brought you here after all these years?”

“I want to tell you how sorry I’m for what I did.”

“You’re forgiven.”

“Perhaps we can start all over?”

“What a thing to say!” she snapped. “Better go before my husband beats you up.”
