Although they had spent years preparing for a career while in college, Emmy and Jake were about to find their way back to each other. Emmy had told Jake that she'd marry him when they hit 30, and this wasn't a promise he would let her forget. So, ten years after they walked away from each other, he sent her a text. But destiny wasn't going to make it easier for these lovebirds.

Jake was now living in Australia and working as a doctor, while Emmy lived in Britain and educated young people. This meant that 10,000 miles kept these two apart for weeks on end. But they kept in touch with the help of the internet, and since flights to both countries were affordable, it was easy for them to visit each other too. But with time running out, Jake came up with something.

Jake and Emmy had known each other for over twenty years. He knew her family, her goals, her desires, and even her favorite color. He could tell when she was happy and when she was sad and could turn her frown upside down. They were the best of friends and Jake saw a future with Emmy, and he wasn't about to risk losing her again.

Jake wanted to keep his promise to her after spending so much time apart. But he also wanted to make up for lost time and speed things up a bit. So, he came up with the perfect solution. He planned a lovely getaway to the Philippines. But this wasn't a vacation. He intended to propose to Emmy. But before they could make it to their destination, fate intervened once again.

The only thing that scared Jake was Emmy. When he was younger, he was afraid that she would only see him as a friend. As he got older, he was afraid he would make a decision he'd regret. Now, his biggest fear was the thought of living without her. So, when she flew over to visit him in Australia, Jake's fear had initially been about whether she'd say yes or no to his proposal. Then he noticed the lump growing on her neck.
