When I was 14 years old, I started to write a story. Unfortunately I never finished it, but I came across it the other day and I thought I'd share it in chapters. It's a silly little story but I hope it brings a smile to your face!

Love waits for one thing, the right moment.
Love is like candy. There are many different kinds; lollipops, toffee, fudge, licorice and Emma Dollie’s favorite- chocolate. It didn’t matter if it was dark or light, black or white, chocolate was simply the best. But that’s another story. There may be dozens of candy varieties but there are even more kinds of love. The love of a friend, the love of a mother, the love of a pet, the love of that special someone…. Oh how Emma secretly longed for the love of a special someone to laugh with, to cry with, to be with. But in the 26 years, 9 months, 21 days, 4 hours and 16 minutes Emma had been alive, she had never laid eyes on her Prince Charming. Of course there were infatuations but nothing more had ever come of those. For example, in the second grade, Emma Dollie was married to Wesley Scoot on a bright sunny day underneath the monkey bars during morning recess. Wesley was a pudgy red-headed boy with glasses that swallowed his face with freckles and all. At lunch time, Emma learned Wesley did not like chocolate milk and Emma simply could not live with out it. Their relationship ceased to exist by the time the bell rang to go home that afternoon.
Even though Emma found herself unlucky in love, she was lucky in friends. She could hardly imagine what she would ever do without them. Gretchen and Thomas: formally known as Gretchen Myers and Thomas Owers. However, when Emma introduced them to each other at the opening of ‘Emma’s Bonbon Boutique’, they could not deny the fireworks that erupted inside of their souls that day. Three days later was their first date to the zoo, and three months later, the wedding bells were ringing and they started their life together, hand in hand, forever and ever.
The reception, held at ‘Emma’s Bonbon Boutique’, was glorious. Emma stood in the wedding line, meeting and greeting the now, Mr. and Mrs. Owers guests. This included family, friends and foreigners, for Emma was Gretchen’s maid of honor and Thomas’ best man that day. Every now and then, Emma glanced the newly married couple’s way. She saw them gaze with delicate affection into each others eyes and she knew. She knew that was what she longed for, what she dreamed about every night, and what she day dreamed about every day! Now where oh where was ‘Mr. Right?’
