It was one of those days – Peter was having a really bad day at work, got caught in the rain, missed the bus – everything was going wrong, so after work he decided to go to the local pub for a beer- a quick one. There were some of his friends so a quick one turned into a one or two and before they knew it they became one too many.  That’s the night he met Emma. At first they were good friends but one thing led to another and they fell in love.

She is a lovely person – one in a million. When she saw Peter she liked him straightaway. He was her one and only. She loved him to bits because he had all the good qualities rolled into one – affectionate, charming, intelligent and funny. She always used to say “I hope he asks me to marry him one of these days” but unfortunately that never happened.

Due to work, he had to relocate to Australia and after a while they drifted apart. Now they are back to square one, back to being good friends.
