She Changed His Life

Anne had reddish-brown hair, a lean face, a beautiful singing voice, and a laugh that could win anyone over. She was also a teacher. She didn’t mind helping John create his own carpentry business. Anne also found him a place to live, and got him situated within a matter of weeks. She had practically saved his life, but John was equally impressed by Anne’s own life goals.
He Pulled Her Back In
Anne had lots of plans, but John was never a part of them. Her biggest dream included living in France, but every time she talked herself into going, John managed to reel her in. She had ended things with him four times during their first year of dating. Perhaps his sincerity and kindness had won her over. She couldn’t get rid of him. When she tried to break up with him for the fifth time, he proposed. She was willing to say yes, but only under one insane condition.
Anne told John that she’d marry him if he managed to beat her at a game of chess, but John didn’t like playing chess. He spent weeks walking her from school to the park where regular players would get together and play chess on a daily basis. He lost every game he tried to play. Then, four months after he proposed to Anne, he was finally able to shout “Checkmate,” on a chilly December night. But this didn’t necessarily mean that John had won Anne over.
It Was Almost Perfect
Everyone told John that marriage wasn’t easy. Obviously, they never met Anne. Thanks to her, his days began and ended with sheer happiness. Together, they convinced a loan officer to give them the money they needed to put a down payment on a cottage in the outskirts of town. Life was pretty much perfect, until Anne went to see a doctor.
Anne was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was 35. She managed to give John ten amazing years of marriage before she passed away in her sleep. John grieved for his wife, but he knew that he’d see her again in the afterlife. Meanwhile, he never dated, married, or had children because he felt that the time he had spent with Anne gave him a lifetime of satisfaction. But as the years went by and he got older, life became increasingly more difficult.
