If Anissa noticed Troy on the elementary school playground as a fifth grader, he didn’t… but he would notice her in high school. They became friends and friends they would remain throughout college. Troy went to San Jose State and Anissa went to APU.
When Troy graduated in the summer of 2016, he moved back to town for the summer. Troy and Anissa were spending more time together. If Troy could not remember her from 5th grade, he could not seem to forget her now. Anissa who had just gotten out of a relationship was not ready to let the friendship turn to anything else. So they hung out almost every day and played lots of mini golf, but friends they stayed.
Troy moved to Colorado Springs. Even though Anissa wanted to only stay, “just friends” she would frequently go visit him. After turning him down twice, she finally said, “yes,” and the long-distance relationship started. New Year’s Eve would be their first kiss!
After dating for 7 months, flying numerous times back and forth, Troy was sick of it. Actually he was really sick. The weekend visit was coming to an end and they had not done a thing. Anissa was getting cabin fever. Troy’s friend came over and he finally got out of the house to take a walk. It was a trail, Troy and Anissa had walked many times before. She did not know it then but that walk would be different. They stopped at their favorite lookout point and as the sun was setting, Troy got down on one knee and proposed while his friend snapped pictures. Anissa said, “Yes.” She will be marrying her best friend.
