Emmy was born in the United Kingdom, so every fiber of her being was designed to embrace the cloudy skies, cold days, and heavy rain. So, while she was in Australia with her boyfriend, the heat did a number on her. She asked Jake for a massage to ease the pain in her neck and he happily agreed to do it. After all, he could never refuse her. But when he touched her neck, he froze with fear. What did she have?

Emmy and Jake ran into each other during a school assembly when they were 11 years old. At that moment, they formed a bond that was based on friendship, kindness, and mutual respect.

As time passed, Emmy and Jake continued falling for other people. By the time he was 13, Jake called Emmy his lobster, just like Phoebe on "Friends," who once told Ross that he and Rachel were going to be together because she was his lobster, and that she believed sea creatures were into monogamy. But Jake and Emmy couldn't admit their feelings for each other.

It took another five years of sheer friendship before these two came clean about their feelings. At the start of their three-year romance, Jake wrote to Emmy: “You are my everything and if you still can put up with me, I will marry you one day.” It felt as though the stars had finally aligned for these two, and they could see a future with each other. But adulthood threatened to sour their milk.

After deciding to be together, they discovered they had to be apart when their careers took off. They decided to leave each other, but not because they fell out of love. They simply felt that this was the only way for them to live their dreams without holding one another back. But the universe works in mysterious ways and can turn the biggest skeptic into a believer.
