Good morning and welcome to Tuesday Blog Share. Today, we’re talking about rekindling romance. Love isn’t easily given and once it’s gone, the persons involved don’t seek each other out.
Joe was ready for marriage, even had a special ring created for the woman he loved… Mel wanted a career without the burden of children; she wanted travel… A proposal knocks both of these people back a step. Their reactions leave lasting emotional pain. Does their romance have a chance in the future?
Mel dashes Joe’s hopes for marriage when she decides to pursue a career. Thirty years later, retired and without close family, she reunites with her first love.
Mel fought her inner turmoil. She was going to tell Joe about the letter she’d received from her twin, Rob, yesterday. About how demeaning it was to her and that she was definitely going to sign the reenlistment papers she’d received from her OIC (officer in charge) yesterday. Now, with what was obviously a ring box—more than likely an engagement ring box—right in front of her, she was at a loss.
What is he doing? We’re great friends. Yeah, I more than like him, but this? Now? It’s crazy!
She’d always had a soft spot for Joe, could probably love him one day, but not now. Not when her commander had mentioned that if she signed those re-enlistment papers, she might find herself at Nellis AFB, as part of the Red Flag crews. That was a really great move for someone who had just put on her sergeant’s stripes. Marrying another member of the military meant years of them being assigned to a base where the lesser achieving one would fit in, and in her heart, she knew Joe’s achievements were much lower than hers.
