Days turned into months, and Ava and Jack's relationship grew stronger with each passing moment. They spent all their free time together, sharing their dreams, their fears, and their hopes for the future. As time went on, Ava began to realize that she was deeply in love with Jack, and she knew that she wanted to spend the rest of her life with him.

One day, with a pounding heart, Ava mustered up the courage to ask Jack to marry her. She poured her heart out to him, confessing her deepest feelings and telling him how much she loved him. But to her surprise, Jack hesitated, and ultimately told her no.

Ava was heartbroken. She couldn't understand why Jack wouldn't want to be with her, especially when they were so perfect for each other. When she asked him why he had said no, he explained that he was worried about how her family would react. He knew that they might not accept their relationship, and he didn't want to cause problems for Ava or for himself.

But Ava was determined not to let anyone stand in the way of their love. She promised Jack that she would do everything in her power to take care of him and to make sure that their relationship was strong enough to withstand any obstacles that came their way. She refused to let her family's opinions get in the way of her happiness, and she begged Jack to reconsider.

With Ava's unwavering love and support, Jack eventually came around, realizing that their love was worth fighting for. And as they stood together, hand in hand, they knew that no matter what challenges lay ahead, they would always have each other to lean on.

Ava and Jack had spent countless hours together, sharing their deepest thoughts and feelings, and building a bond that was unbreakable. They had developed a routine of secretly chatting for hours on end late into the night, and even made video calls to stay connected when they were apart.

But after six months of being together, the cracks began to show. The stress of keeping their relationship a secret was starting to take its toll, and small fights began to escalate into bigger, more serious arguments. Jack became increasingly convinced that their relationship was doomed to fail, and he worried about the consequences of being with Ava.

Ava, on the other hand, was desperate to make things work. She couldn't bear the thought of losing Jack, and she convinced herself that they could overcome any obstacle if they just tried hard enough. But as time went on, she began to realize that she was forcing Jack to stay in her life, and that their love was not enough to overcome the challenges they faced.

In the end, despite her best efforts, Ava had to come to terms with the fact that her relationship with Jack was not meant to be. She knew that it was time to let go and to move on, even though it was one of the hardest things she had ever had to do. But as she looked back on their time together, she knew that their love had been real, and that she would always cherish the memories they had shared.

After three months of being apart, a virus swept across the world, attacking every human without discrimination. With no immunity and no cure, the entire world went into lockdown, each individual trying their best to protect themselves and those around them. During this time of isolation, Ava found herself reaching out to people on social media, searching for some form of human connection.

It was there that she met Aaron, a simple yet kind person who seemed to understand her in a way that no one else had. They started talking, at first just about small things like the weather and what they were doing in lockdown. But as time went on, their conversations deepened, and Ava found herself opening up to him in a way she never had before.

Slowly but surely, Ava began to change her mind about love. She realized that there was more to life than just being with someone because of societal pressure, and that true love could be found in the most unexpected places. With Aaron, she felt a connection that she had never felt before, and she knew that their conversations were helping her to heal and to move on from her past.

It took Ava a year to truly get close to Aaron, but in that time, they built a bond that was unbreakable. They talked about everything under the sun, from their favorite movies to their deepest fears and insecurities. And as Ava grew more comfortable with him, she started to open up about her past, and about Jack.

At first, it was difficult for Ava to talk about Jack, the man she had once loved so deeply. But as she shared more with Aaron, she found that it helped her to heal and to move on. She talked about the good times they had shared, the late-night conversations and the moments of pure joy. But she also talked about the fights, the arguments, and the ultimate realization that their love was not meant to be.

As she spoke, Ava felt a weight lifting from her shoulders, and she knew that she was finally ready to let go of the past and to embrace the future. And with Aaron by her side, she knew that anything was possible.

And Aaron will always there for Ava.!

The End.

he moral of this story is that love can come in many different forms and can be found in unexpected places. It's important to be true to yourself and not to let societal pressures dictate your choices in life. When we are open to new experiences and new people, we may find that the love we were searching for was right in front of us all along.
