Hearts on ice
Love, what does that word really mean to people. I never really knew. In the beginning of my 8th grade year I was excited about guys. I never really had understood love at the time but I was still overcome with joy for it. About a week had gone by and my friend from history class asked me out. He was the sweetest guy ever.
We went out for about a month and a half and it was the best time of my life. Throughout that time my other friend, Alex, would always comfort me when I got into an argument with my boyfriend, Joel. Then one day when I was talking to my friends online I received an e-mail from my father at work. After 12 years of beautiful marriage and 2 children my uncle had been cheating on my aunt for 2 years. She was devastated. He seemed like the perfect husband, father, and uncle. What drove him to do this terrible thing will remain in his head.
My aunt became depressed and was put on anti-depressant medicine. About 2 days after this had happened my boyfriend, who told me he loved me, told me he would do anything, and told me he would die for me, suddenly said he never even liked me in the first place. I went into my room after school and shed so many tears my cheeks were puffy for weeks. Alex of course felt dearingly and helped me through my terrible times. What became such a mystery was I was falling in love with him. I kept it to myself for 2 years, with it burning in me constantly. I then stopped believing in love. In my mind it was unreal, just another movie or book. But then Alex sat me down and told me he was lost without me.
I couldn't contain myself anymore. We dated for a long time, then he finally asked me to marry him. We have been married for 15 years and have 2 beautiful children.
... to my love, Alex
