My One and Only!
Dedicated to My husband Martin!
Submitted by Shanelle
He was a marine stationed on kaneohe marine corps base Hawaii and i was a local girl from Hawaii. I was only seventeen and i felt that i needed someone to love me for the rest of my life.
I was at work late one night, when out of the corner of my eye, I saw the most handsome man that i ever saw in my life. I knew that we had met before but i just couldn't figure out where. He asked me to the movies that night and i just could not resist.
From that night on, we talked on the phone every single day. If we weren't on the phone, we were together. All my friend's knew that i wanted to be with him and he wanted to be with me. No matter what me and my friends talked about, his name always came up.
He was the only thing on my mind. At first, he constantly asked me out on dates and if i wanted to be his girlfriend. I played hard to get but of course i wanted to be his girlfriend. I honestly thought that he was just another typical male but he was different.
He had something about him that was just so desirable, I could not give that up. After about two months of him begging me to be his girlfriend, I finally gave in and said yes.
My friends all told me that i was in LOVE with him and i didn't want to believe it. I didn't want to say it and get hurt. One night we were on the phone and he slipped and said that he loved me. I got so quiet, i didn't know what to say. I was shocked.
After about two months of dating, he went on leave to California to visit his family. The night before he left, we talked about getting married and i cried. I cried like a little baby even though he was only going to be gone for two weeks.
I thought that he would be another marine and forget all about me. The whole time that he was gone, all i could think about was him. I cried almost the whole time that he was gone.
When he came back on January 3rd, 2004, he asked me to marry him. I looked at him for about two minutes and he asked me again. I was so shocked i didn't believe it. I thought he was joking at first. Of course i said yes anyways. A month and a half later, we were married.
It's been almost two years and I still can't believe that we're still together. It's like a fairy tale. I am still so in love with him. I love him more than the first day I really knew that what i felt for him was love.
I can't imagine how my life would be without him. If he hadn't joined the marine corps, he would have never been in Hawaii and we would have never met. I am so thankful for him.
He is my one and only and I would have it no other way. If I had the chance to change anything about us, I wouldn't change a thing.
