Jude called Erica. “Guess what, honey?” he asked. “ month is our fourth anniversary.” He had already her a nice card. She said yes, next would mark the fourth year that they had each other.
“'Known' each other?” Jude repeated. He her, saying that it would mark the fourth that they had been in love with each .
Erica laughed. “Not hardly,” she said. “For the two years, yes, I was madly in love you. You were my king. I would have anything for you. Then I made the biggest of my life: I asked you to marry , and you said no! How many times had sworn your love to me? But when you a chance to back up your words with , you chickened out. You didn't love me at !”
He told her that he hadn’t “chickened out.” just hadn’t been ready to marry her at particular time. “What does that mean?” she had him. He couldn’t explain what it meant, but did everything from that day on to win love again. After a year of chasing her, finally caught her, and her heart, again.
“So,” explained, “for the first two years I loved . The third year, you loved me. The fourth , we both loved each other. So, next month actually our first anniversary of being in love each other at the same time!”
After thinking this, Jude went back to Target the next and bought Erica a “Happy First Anniversary” card.
