Three years ago, a girl and a boy from Kansas drove 1,555 miles into New York City. He was dropping her off for her to live and work for a semester on Long Island. She knew that she wanted to do this, to see what it exactly was she wanted from life. The boy and the girl drove for days on end and ended up in the city.
The girl and boy went through you know what trying to get into the city through the Holland Tunnel a couple of days before New Years Eve. EVERYONE was trying to get into the city to celebrate in Times Square! It was packed and the car they were riding in about got clobbered by a bus. True story….. The girl cried. The boy asked “Where do they sell I hate NY shirts? Where can I buy one of those?” The boy was trying to make light of the situation. The girl cried more.
After about losing their lives trying to get into the city, a wrong turn was somehow taken and they got lost. The girl cried more.
After hours of being lost in NYC, they were finally on Long Island driving on the LIE- which can otherwise be known as torture during ‘rush hour’. Right before it was completely dark they drove up to the girl’s new home. There were no curtains on her windows, the new roommate was a fitness model (true story) who does competitions, and her bed was not put together. The room was cold and empty and the boy was going to leave the girl there all alone. The girl cried more.
The boy and the girl went to bed on tear a tear stained pillow. The next day, the boy helped the girl put her room together and make it home to her. The boy was being such a prince charming.
The boy walked out of her new place in New York on New Years day and the girl stayed in New York. The boy got on a plane and flew back to Kansas, without the girl. The girl cried when the boy walked away from her and she felt her hear break….. She thought she liked that boy quite a bit but didn’t think she would actually feel her heart break when he walked away and left her there. Yes, she cried all the way to New York and for a few days after she arrived but ended up having the time of her life and learned the most important lesson of her life.
The lesson that girl learned: She loved that boy with all of her heart.
This is a true story based on the real life of Julie and her now husband.
I’m pretty sure the boy in this story learned the same lesson, loving the girl with all of his heart. You should hear HIM tell the story! It’s waaaaaay better than my version!
