On a return trip to Costa Rica, Jonah takes Loren’s son David fishing while she goes to work. They have a good time and as the sun sets, Loran shows up at the channel.

“Yes… but I thought maybe it would darken with age.”

Lisa and Jonah saved each other from uncommon antagonists. One from a drug cartell, and the other from a human trafficking ring.

looked absolutely beautiful with her long black hair falling across
her shoulders. I faced her from the platform, while our eye contact
never broke. I took her hand and she stood beside me.
The preacher read from the Bible and I thought about how
complete my life is now. As soon as we’re legal and recorded,
all of my past, present, and future, becomes one, and forgiven.
I looked past the Bible that the preacher was holding and stared

“I DO!” I said, as Loren smiled, blushed, and shook her head
at me. She knew exactly what I was thinking!
