Mr. and Mrs. Dewberry (13 years)


Here we are, on earth, together
It's you and I, God has made us
Fall in love, it's true
I've really found someone like you


Clay and Jackie often seen each other on campus but never really had a conversation. One faithful evening they ended up at a mutual friend's dorm room. The topic of discussions was relationships. After much debate, with Jackie not saying much, Clay blurted out "I like you, do you want to go out?" Stunned and shocked, Jackie did not answer. Later that evening, Jackie pulled Clay to the side and finally answered his question-"YES"!
