Pasadena Engagement/ Hugus Alley: S loves J

They probably passed each other in the college hall ways on the way to class. They might have studied feet away from each other in the library. They could have had a meal with their backs to each other in the dining room. They were there, but they never met. Destiny waited. It would be an App that would bring them together at the beginning of the Pandemic. It would take three months for them to meet.

The well planned out first date for Sushi didn’t go to well at first. There was a three hour wait, so they decided to go to another restaurant. Since they were in separate cars, they both drove to different places. J actually thought, she had been ditched when S called her. Suddenly, they were sitting, eating, laughing. The conversation just flowed. Neither wanted the date to end.

J would find S to be considerate, admirable, unparalleled and of course handsome. She knew S was the one when she saw that his respect and love for her was genuine. She saw how he treated everyone in their lives; her family, her friends, his family, and his friends. J had never met another person like him.

Since that first conversation, S could see that besides beautiful, J was also compassionate, caring, ambitious, smart, courageous, and strong. She was the woman that was constantly opening his mind to new ideas and concepts. She was not afraid to be competitive and challenged him to small debates, games and even tennis.

It would be during an anniversary trip to the Bahamas where S would propose to J. He planned a snorkeling tour of a famous and large aquarium with 100’s of fish, sharks, stingrays, and a manta ray named Hope. At the end of the tour, S got down on one knee and proposed. J was not expecting it. She of course said, “Yes, ” to the man she loved.
