Now that she had healed from the accident and trying to move on with her life Kristi wanted to find a friend to go out with occasionally. The only problem is that she wasn’t one to go out to bars alone and her old friends had moved away. Kristi wasn’t looking for a serious relationship when she joined the dating site; someone to have fun with.
The first thing I remembered seeing was her own reflection; a bruised and weary face from the car accident I had been in days ago. The bruises were deep and dark the pain seemed to be endless but the doctors were confident that she would recover in time. I had been in a coma for five days and was ready to go home now so only time would tell but time was all I had now. Why wasn’t my husband there to take her home? Why had he not been to the hospital? My mom couldn’t answer my questions but was very angry because he’d already used my bank account without permission.
Kristi was just a girl from west Georgia; she wasn’t the prettiest, but she was very talented and had a caring personality. A bit of a dreamer, mostly of getting out of that small town and doing something with her life that mattered one day. Kristi had been dating Jay, a boy from a neighboring town she met in night school, and she was sure he was the love of her life. Jay was a bit older and had plans to join the Navy after high school. He joined the Navy and shortly after asked Kristi to marry him. She excitedly said yes and they decided to marry after she graduated high school.
What if you didn’t have love? What would you do? Would you give up on the world and everyone in it, or would you keep looking until you found it?

Beth was a small-town girl with a dream of becoming a singer one day. She sang in the church and school choirs and had the occasional solo but was a bit shy about her talent. Singing in church was easy for her; it was something she had done most of her life, but when she thought about performing in front of people she didn’t know, Beth would hesitate.
Have you ever wondered about that small voice or gut feeling you have sometimes? My story has a message and them both; a belief in God and a strong gut feeling got me through a rough situation without a warning. But that’s the way it’s supposed to happen. The message is simple, listen to your gut and that small voice when it’s strongly telling you to move from a bad situation.
