I went to a private school. I was 13 years old when I met Luke.
My mom grew up without a lot of money. She made sure she didn’t struggle financially as an adult. My step dad ran a car dealership and has always made good money. We lived in a brand new house on the outskirts of town.
We were driving home after my mom picked me up from school and I saw this boy standing in this garage. He was staring out across the field. He was wearing cut off shorts and a red, cut up T-shirt. He had dirty blonde hair.
He never even looked my way.
Time stood still. Everything got quiet. I held my breath.
That was going to be my husband. I said those exact words to my mom. Do you know what she said? She said “Don’t be an idiot, Alabama, you don’t even know that boy.”
Well I proved her wrong and I married that boy…
