A girl named Lisa.. this is her story.
Lisa: I was all alone at home on one lovely day. I decided to go for a walk. I walked miles after miles, while listening to my walkman. All of a sudden, thunder striked..lightning followed. I knew I was in for a shocking rain. Turning back to walk home would be a stupid choice because I would get wet. I walked to a bus stop, and tried to stop a motor cycle to no avail. It started raining. It rained heavily. I didn't know what to do, I just stood there with the hope of getting home safe. All of a sudden, I was being covered by an umbrella. I looked to my right to see the most handsome guy on planet earth. I don't often talk to strangers, but he was trying to help. I'd be a fool to reject his help. Thanks, I said with gratitude. A few minutes later, he stopped a motor cycle for me. I thanked him again and offered him his umbrella which he refused. "You need it more than I do". I thanked him and left. I couldn't stop thinking about this mystery guy that came out of nowhere to save the day.

2 weeks after this occurence, I ran into this same guy at a friend's party. I was surprised that he still recognized me. I smiled and said "sorry I didn't bring your umbrella". He just laughed.." You didn't know we'd meet again". I felt stupid for saying that but I didn't know what was coming out of me. I know I skipped a heartbeat. We exchanged contact info and departed.. I started seeing him 3 months after the party. He was not just an ordinary guy, he was perfect. He shows love and affection in every way that he could. I could recall an incident that happened one xmas. I left his gift at home thinking I had packed it with some other gifts that I took to church. I'm sorry I don't have your gift here with me. We can go over to my place so you get it, I said with a cute voice. "You don't have to. You are the best gift one could ever ask for. I am glad I have you and I love you." I guess you know what follows that. A kiss sealed with gratitude. We had a lot of good memories. We loved more than we argued. HE was the best thing that ever happened to me, he still is. 25th of december 2006, a day that I will forever cherish.
He bought me lots of gifts. He brought some flowers which I took from him with a huge smile. He took it back from me, and pulled one particular flower which he stroked around my hair. He dropped the flower, I attempted to pick it up and he did the same. It was like we planned it. I noticed that the flower made an unusual sound. "I got it," he whispered. I stood up and looked down on him as he picked up the flower...alas... a RING. I inhaled with my hands on my mouth.
"over the past few years, you have stirred me with your smile. Your sharp looks and your cute dimples always put a smile on my face. When I am cold thinking I have no one to hold, you've here.... right beside me. Each and every day, I learn to appreciate you more. I have come to realize that I need you more than you think I do. I want to make you my confidante. I want you to be mine forever. I love you and I'm hoping you feel the same way too. Will you marry me?"
I screamed with excitement. I was astonished and happy. I didn't know what to say.. I could hear soft whispers of yes yes from within. I screamed YEs I will. Yes YEs YEs. He got up, placed the ring on my finger, and kissed me passionately. That was the happiest day of my life. We had a toast and celebrated briefly.
Last week, I went to my best friend's house for a sleep over. We decided to pay her cousin a visit.....other girls were there as well. We did some girl talk, watched movies, cried and sang. I wanted to help my friend's cousin with the dishes. I took off my ring, placed it on the counter and washed the dishes. I washed and cleaned my hands. I headed to the counter to get my ring and realized it was missing. I called the attention of everyone to the issue. Everyone claimed they didn't see it. I blacked out for about 5 mins..
As of today, I'm still searching for the ring. My fiance is out of town. He should be back in 2 weeks. what do I say to him? How do I tell him this story?
Would you ever forgive your girl if such happened?
Would u be willing to even hear her out?
How do you explain such to your man?
What would be your justification as to not being careless?
