You never know how strong you are, until being strong is your only choice. This statement by Jamaican singer-songwriter, Bob Marley is the most suitable thing to say about today’s story. Teenage is the phase where all of us have done silly things and sometimes even overreacted on smallest of the things that don’t matter anymore; be it a relationship, or a video game, or a basketball match or a break-up.
She was just a 16-year-old girl who fell in love for the first time. But her love life was not even close to the usual ones. The struggles that she went through during that innocent phase were not even close to what we all have experienced. Even a mature person might quit in those terrible situations but she didn’t. Her story is about endless hope and boundless love.
High School Girl
First Time At Dating
Four months before unfateful day took place Amber started dating a boy named Ty Ryan who used to go to a nearby school. Ty and Amber liked each other, however, their relationship was far from love. They both had casual feelings just like any other teen couple but time was going to suck them into a drastic twist.
Taking It Slow
One Day A Week
They were quite strict with their schedules and met just once a week. So far the young couple succeeded in maintaining a perfect balance between everything and their brand new blooming relationship. No matter how strict one is with their routine everyone love to enjoy a cheat day once a while. We aren’t talking about a cheat day from a diet but from studies… Amber didn’t feel like studying that day and that’s where it all started.
A Mid-Week Date
Amber decided to text her boyfriend to confirm if he was free that evening and would like to go out to grab a bite and spend some unplanned time together. “I remember sitting in high school chemistry and getting this wild idea of having a ‘during the week’ date with my boyfriend of 4 months. We typically only saw each other on the weekends but I decided to text him and we planned a date for Thursday,” recalled Amber about how she suddenly got the idea for a date.
Last Minute Adjustments
Ty canceled his other plans and agreed for the date. After all, he knew Amber never asked for a mid-week date before. It was the last moment plan that she didn’t even decide where they will go. Amber told him that she’ll give him a call once she’s ready. They planned to meet around 4 that evening.
