Your name is Paige Magnolia-Elizabeth Newton. You are a 20-year-old college student from Oregon and are a rising junior at Oregon State University. Your parents announced earlier in the year that they were taking a month-long second honeymoon in Hawaii, giving you a perfect reason not to go home right away when school let out for the summer. Throughout the year, you had put whatever money you could aside so that you could do what you always wanted to do: visit your favorite aunt, Melissa Helen Yardley, who is living in the American south.
Where does your aunt live?
Little Rock, Arkansas
Two days after school lets out, you grab your bags, head to the airport, and hop on a plane to Little Rock. She greets you at the airport and is very happy to see you. You plan on staying for a month and a half, with her in her two-bedroom condo. When you get there, you see there is a man sitting in the living room. Your aunt introduces him as James Hilty, her live-in boyfriend. You're surprised--your aunt never mentioned a boyfriend. She blushes and she says she wasn't quite sure how to tell you and thought if your mom found out, she might not let you visit. You say its OK. They take you out to dinner that night and help you get settled in. James turns out to be a really nice guy. He met her through their work and they've been dating for 7 months. He recently moved in with your aunt, per her request.
For the next couple of days, your aunt and her boyfriend take you sightseeing. When you've been in the city for 3 days when a visitor stops by your aunt's condo. You open the door, expecting to see a friend that was suppose to stop by, but a boy you don't know is there instead. You both stare at each other for several moments, before he asks for your aunt's boyfriend by name. Your aunt comes over and introduces him. His name is Keats Wiley Alexander and he's a 22-year-old college student. He is your aunt's boyfriend's godson. He spends the rest of the day with you, your aunt, and his godfather.
The next 9 weeks are the most fun you've ever had in a long time. You've gotten really close with Keats and are sad about leaving. The night before you are set to leave, your aunt, her boyfriend, and your new friends throw you a going-home party. The next day, Melissa,James, and Keats, bring you to the airport. Before he leaves, the boy gently kisses you on the forehead.
Once you are back in college, your life falls back into your previous routine and you fall out of the contact with the boy you met in Little Rock. In the second semester of your senior year of college, you begin seriously dating a guy named Camden Monroe Oliver, even moving in with him. On your first anniversary together, he proposes to you! You gladly say yes.
How does he propose?
He buys you roses. In one of the roses, you find the ring with a special note.
What does your engagement ring look like?
9 weeks weeks after you are officially engaged, you receive even more exciting news: your aunt is getting married! She and James are finally tying the knot and she wants you present as her maid of honor. Unfortunately, your fiancee has something business related and cannot attend the ceremony. You head to Little Rock with your parents and your younger brother to be with your aunt on her special day.
What does your maid of honor dress look like?
At the wedding, you are reunited with Keats. He is your new uncle's best man. The wedding is a casual occasion in the local town hall, with twelve guests. You are arm and arm with him as you walk beside him in the procession. Your old crush comes back--tenfold. He appears to be returning your affections, but then he sees the ring on your finger and he avoids eye contact with you. He does this repeatedly throughout your stay. After the wedding, you return home to your fiancee. Only this time, you keep in touch with Keats.
7 months after your aunt's wedding, you come home to an empty apartment. Your fiancee has cleared out. You are worried, and you call almost all of his friends. Then, you call his sister, who reveals a terrible secret: Camden admitted to her he had been cheating on you for the past few months. She tried to convince him to be straightforward with you, but apparently he chickened out. You are beyond upset; your wedding was in two weeks! When he finally comes home, he begs you to take him back. A small part of you wants to, but you ultimately decide to break off the engagement. All your friends and your family are upset. You can't take the looks of pity and whispers anymore after a few weeks. You quit your job and move to Little Rock , the one place in the world you were completely happy.Married my best friend 5/11/13, mommy to Murron Lydia Genevieve 10/20/14
