Right after Basic Training, while I was 18, I met Bernice. She was the cashier at the Shop N' Go near my apartment, and the cutest thing in the place.
I asked her out and she agreed, and before long we were an item. After a few months, I asked her to marry me.
Our wedding was held on a lovely Saturday in a park. Even though the clouds were trying to cover the sun all day, it was still warm and nice.
She looked lovely in her white dress. So much so, I started to cry as she came walking up the aisle between the chairs. Our pastor said some words and then we kissed. She whispered in my ear that I was the best thing to ever happen to her. I was on cloud nine.
