Really good story of a couple who met when they were young and immature, reconciled due to circumstances beyond their control when more mature and nine years older (yep that short of time can make a big difference in an arrogant - well to do - butt hat of a hero).

Tear jerker, really well written.

no typos/editing issues either!!!
