Sarah wasn't tired at all, but she had to get up again the next day and
work her eight and a half hour shift, so she decided to try to sleep anyway.
She got up from her computer and changed into a large T-shirt and a pair
of shorts, then walked back to her computer. She saved the story
she was working on earlier and clicked on the open icon, seeing something
in the directory that wasn't there before. It was called 'I love
you', and Sarah smiled as she double clicked on it and it opened.
'There was once this man, a humble man, who one day met a beautiful princess.
He fell in love with her personality before anything and then, when he
finally met her face to face, he couldn't help but fall in love with her
beauty. Though the princess didn't believe she was beautiful because
many people had told her otherwise, the man knew what he saw and he saw
only beauty on his princess' face. He spent time with her, falling
for her at lightning speed, and kept moving to act on his love. The
that they shouldn't do anything and always
backed away from him, but still the man pursued her. He finally acted
on his love one night, taking her out to dinner and a movie and then brought
her back to her place. She said good night, but the man could not
sleep. He wanted to just hold her in his arms for a little while,
but his feelings took control and he made love to the glorious angel in
front of him, despite the values both had about it. He loved her
for her and told her she was beautiful numerous times, praying that she

and finally, the day came he had to leave her. He made love to her
one last time, memorizing the way she made him feel, a feeling that could
only be said as complete. He showed her just how much he loved her
and made a very powerful vow to her, promising her that he would never
leave her or stop loving her simply because distance was between them.
He left, not wanting to, but promised to be back one day, and he will uphold
'You see, Sarah, you are that princess, and I that man. You mean
the world to me and I will never forget anything about you, your smile,
your laugh, your touch, your emotions, it is all in my memory as the sweetest
thing that I've ever witnessed. I'll love you forever and I'll never
find someone like you again in my life (song cue!). Just remember
how much I love you and never stop loving me and your life with the passion
you live with. Strive to be yourself and be the sweet person you
are. Love always and forever, Brian.'
Sarah was in tears by the time she finished reading. It was the sweetest
thing anyone had ever done for her and she was touched. She shut
down her computer after saving that little story and went into her room.
She laid on her bed and closed her eyes, hearing the quiet hum of her mother's
television from the next room. She'd come home right after Sarah
had come home from work and went to bed immediately, tired from the long
drive. Sarah hugged her pillow and spotted something on the table
next to her bed.
"Brian's ring," she whispered as she picked it up. It was the gold
ring that he'd worn, the only one he wore, and she suspected that he didn't

asleep still clutching the ring that was slightly big on her right hand
