She was the love of his life....

She was in love with her husband, but she felt as if something was missing. She walked around her two-story mansion, it was so empty she could hear the walls crack.

When Sarah met Jon, they were in high school and he was the captain of the football team and she was the star of the 4-H Club. Everyone thought them being together was a joke. She was seen to be a nerd and well, of course, he was a jock so when they hooked up it wasn't natural to some.

Sarah was teased and tormented by the cheerleaders and when Jon found out he made it very clear to the entire school that he loved her, and no one would change that.

Several years later they are now out of college and married. He was drafted into the NFL and ever since then Sarah has been lonely.

Time has passed, and Jon was out of town and Sarah was doing her daily routine of shopping and spa days when she bumped into an ex of hers from years ago that she dumped to date Jon... They talked and had coffee and exchanged phone numbers. Jon came home and had to leave out again and this time he would be gone for six months...

Sarah met up with her old friend Michael and they spent more and more time together. He said things to her that her husband used to say to her, made her feel a way that Jon use to make her feel. She begins to think that he loved her.

It was their last week to spend together before Jon was to come home and Michael really wanted to be with her, he wanted to make love to her for he didn't know if he would ever get to see her again once her husband returned home...

And because she was weak and lonely she fell into his arms and they shared a night of passion beyond her wildest dreams...a night that she would never forget... she felt feelings that she had never even felt with her own husband...

3 Months Later......

Sarah was cooking dinner for her and her husband. Jon had been home for almost four months working locally and she could not be happier. All of a sudden, she felt dizzy and before she could call out to her husband she fainted and all of the pots and food fell to the floor... Jon, of course, rushed into the kitchen in a panic screaming her name and shaking her but he got no response so he did what he knew he had to do and he rushed her to the hospital.

After several hours of testing, scans and IV liquids, the doctor came into the room to give them the news of why she fainted the way she did, and it was something that shocked Sarah and her husband....

"I am sorry to inform you Sarah, but you are pregnant..."

Jon was in shocked he didn't know what to say or how to feel...

They kept Sarah in the hospital for a few more days for her immune system was complicated due to previous medical issues....so things were not looking good for her or the baby...

After a week of being in the hospital, Jon had gone home to get some rest and change of clothes. For an entire week, he never left her side even though he had gotten tested and he was clear, and she admitted to cheating on him he still didn't leave her side for she was the love of his life....

The doctor's finally discharged Sarah from the hospital and she went home with her husband. She had several appointments a week and was put on several diverse types of pills. Jon had the money so only the best doctor's and medicine would do for his wife and their unborn child.

Seven months later Sara gave birth a bouncing baby girl.

1 Year Later...

Ebony Nicole was growing to be a beautiful young girl looking more and more like her mother. Sara couldn't find Michael anywhere, so she went to the courts to get his parental rights dropped so that Jon could adopt her daughter and raise her as his own and everything went smoothly for Michael never responded to any of the notices that the courts sent to him.

Life was good, and things were going fine. Sara was getting stronger and stronger as the days went by and one day when she and Jon were dropping their now 6-year-old daughter off to school Sara started to have trouble breathing and was throwing up blood, so she was rushed to the hospital...

Sara received several pints of blood for her red and white blood cells were all over the place and she lost blood from all the throwing up she was doing. After more test and blood work the discovered that Sara was HIV positive. The doctors couldn't understand how they missed it in the beginning unless it was dormant, after all, she had no signs of it years ago.

Sara was in shock, she cried for the first few weeks. Jon was tested for the next six months and so was Ebony and they were just fine no signs of the disease at all.

Sara started to lose her appetite and not want to eat, and the doctors ended up keeping her in the hospital again and this time she was sure she wasn't walking out of it. She made Jon promise that he would take care of their daughter and no matter what he would not allow her to know who her father was how what she died from. She wanted her daughter to remember her as the beautiful and vibrant woman that she was to her.

One day while Sara was laying in the hospital bed just listening to the television. The nurse came in with the most gorgeous set of multicolored roses she had ever seen. She motioned for the nurse to read the card to her for she was intubated and couldn't speak and could barely sit up.

As the nurse pulled the card out and begin to read it Jon walked back in the room from bringing Ebony to his mom's house and she heard everything the card said....

The Note read...

"You broke my heart and destroyed my world when you broke up with me to be with the man you are with. He took the one thing, the one person from me that I lived for, the one thing that gave me a reason to wake up in the morning so it's my turn to take it away from him. I hope you are enjoying your broken heart and the gift I have bestowed upon you...Now we are bonded for life..."

Love,

Michael

Weeks later Sarah past away her body couldn't handle the illness and she ended up with Pneumonia...Jon was truly heartbroken. he couldn't eat, sleep. He found strength in this daughter and slowly begin to live life again. He did some research to try and find out what he could about Michael but upon getting all the information back from the private detective that he hired. He came to learn that Michael had died a week prior to Sara and had made instructions for his attorney to send the roses with the unopened letter. When Jon contacted the lawyer, he explained to Jon that he had no idea what was in the letter had he known he would have said something but as Michael being his client he was not at liberty to open said letter.

The moral of this story is NEVER look to someone else for what you are missing or lacking in your relationship or marriage for you never know what is in that grass that is on the other side of the fence and everyone does not have your best interest at heart....
