Hi, I'm Melody Shoph. I'm about to tell you the details of my horrible life. Sure, I've got plenty of money. Sure, I go on lots of holidays. But those things don't mean my whole life is wonderful. The people in my life are horrible. Well, they were horrible until they died. Yeah, I'm an orphan. So what? At least I don't need to face the woman who neglected me my whole life. I'm glad she died when I was 14. 14 is enough years of getting neglected. My 3 older sisters died when I was around 18 years old. They were 21, 24 and 30 and died in a car crash. My father I never met. So I'm a bastard and an orphan. Isn't that wonderful? The only reason I go on holidays is to forget about my horrible life and try and meet new people. Maybe even one day I'll find love. But I've been wishing to find love for nearly 8 years to my wishing well. I don't think I will ever find love, I bet I'll die of loneliness.

Hi, I'm Melody Shoph. I'm about to tell you the details of my horrible life. Sure, I've got plenty of money. Sure, I go on lots of holidays. But those things don't mean my whole life is wonderful. The people in my life are horrible. Well, they were horrible until they died. Yeah, I'm an orphan. So what? At least I don't need to face the woman who neglected me my whole life. I'm glad she died when I was 14. 14 is enough years of getting neglected. My 3 older sisters died when I was around 18 years old. They were 21, 24 and 30 and died in a car crash. My father I never met. So I'm a bastard and an orphan. Isn't that wonderful? The only reason I go on holidays is to forget about my horrible life and try and meet new people. Maybe even one day I'll find love. But I've been wishing to find love for nearly 8 years to my wishing well. I don't think I will ever find love, I bet I'll die of loneliness. I have just put probably the 3,000th coin into this well. I highly doubt it even works. This house is about 50 years old, it's been renovated 5 times. I grew up in this home and when my parents first met they lived in this house. I don't even know why I still live here. I can vaguely remember my 3 sisters and I fishing with worms every day to see if we caught anything. My sisters were 100 times better at me at everything. While I was getting Bs, they were getting A++s. They ran faster than me, they caught more fish than me and they caught them faster than me, they could spell better than me. They even talked better than me. They only had to put 2 coins in the wishing well and they'd get what they wished for. They had their own way all the time. They would want a laptop and a bike for their birthdays and Christmas and they'd get it, and all I'd get was a pair of undies. Then the most amazing thing happened. I can remember when my sisters wished for something, this always used to happen and they'd get what they wanted. I just stood there in shock and amazement. Was my horrible past finally forgotten by the wishing well? Was the fact my past life was horrible making my future better? Maybe there really was someone out there who wanted someone like me, who wished for true love every day of his life. Then suddenly I heard a thud on the ground. I turned around and saw a handsome man who fell on the ground behind me. I felt like saying, "Did it hurt when you fell from heaven?" But I didn't.
"Ow..." he said.
"Are you alright?" I asked.
"Yes..." he said. "Now that I've met you."
I couldn't help but blush at the man's comment.
He got up from the ground and just started kissing me. I could seee little pink hearts floating around us. It was like Cupid was watching from above and he knew I needed someone to love me as much as I loved them. I could tell this was the man for me, even though I only just met him. I didn't even know his name, but what did that matter? A name is only so you don't get mixed up and confused with people. I suddenly felt like I had known him forever. Was it really this easy to fall in love? I only just met him, but I suddenly believed in love at first sight.
"I feel like I have known you for years," the man said. "Even though we have only known one another for not even a minute."
"I know how you feel," I said. "I feel the same way."
"What is your name, my dear?" he asked.
"Melody Shoph." I said.
"What a beautiful name," he said. "It's almost as beautiful as you. My name is Jonathan Hart."
"Nice to meet you." I said as he grabbed my hand. "Now let's catch some fish."
As we fished, Jonathan was having trouble. Since I had grown up with fishing, I could easily help him. Then I caught a fish. Usually I'd have to wait at least 20 minutes for a fish to bite. Maybe my sisters being dead is making my life much better. I don't know what is going on but my life is turning around, bit by bit.
"Wow," Jonathan said admiringly. "What a fish."
I smiled. "Thanks," I said. "It's not really that hard to catch fish for me. I've grown up with fishing."
"Impressive." Jonathan said. "I don't see much Jumbo Rainbow Trout around."
As I cast my line in again, Jonathan over-casted and fell right on the ground.
"Haha," I laughed. "Do you need some help?"
"Nah," Jonathan said. "I'll learn."
"You sure?" I said. "I've got a gold medal in fishing, I'm told."
"Wow," Jonathan said admiringly. "What a woman."
"Wow!" I said as I caught yet another Jumbo Rainbow Trout. "Another one!"
"Gee," Jonathan said. "You're a very good fisherwoman."
"Oh," I said. "It's really quite easy."
"You think?" Jonathan asked half sarcastically. "I can't even put the bait on my hook properly."
I laughed. I just knew Jonathan was the perfect man for me.
"Holy moly!" I said as I caught a Jumbo Largemouth Bass.
"Wow!" Jonathan said. "That's a huge fish!"
Then I just had a negative thought. I bet Jonathan has been sent to act like he cares, but he really doesn't. Maybe he's been set up or something. I had many doubts about Jonathan, but I still felt as though I loved him; even though we just met not even an hour ago.
After Jonathan left and I changed into some warmer clothes, I decided to book a vacation for tomorrow. I haven't been on vacation for at least a month, which is very unusual for a dirty stop out like me. I booked for tomorrow and I'll leave at 8:00 AM. I'll stay for 1 days and 1 nights at Axe Wood Campgrounds in Three Lakes. I've decided to take Jonathan with me, so we can get to know each other more and maybe start a serious relationship. As I was about to go outside to plant some tomatoes, it started snowing. I know its probably the worst time to plant things when it's snowing, but its not my fault I was planning to plant some tomatoes and it started snowing just as I reached the door. I always used to plant vegetables when I was a child. I can remember my sisters would help me plant them; that was before they turned mean. My plants used to be dead before they even sprouted, and my sisters' plants would always come out perfect every time. At 8:30 AM on Tuesday the car arrived to take me to Three Lakes. It took a long time to get there but I wasn't very bored because I had Jonathan there sitting next to me to talk to. I found out a lot of things about him, he works as a Lieutenant, his star sign is Sagittarius and glasses and brown hair turn him on. When I arrived at the Axe Wood Campgrounds it was snowing and I was quite hungry. I ordered a chicken pot pie before I chose a tent to camp in. Once I ate my chicken pot pie, I thought to myself that there were too many fish in the pond. So I got out my rod from my tent and rigged it up with some bait. Once I started fishing, it seemed as though everyone started joining me. Everyone was catching some fish. I heard Jonathan say he caught his first fish, which was a Jumbo Rainbow Trout. When I get home I'll probably have enough fish to feed myself for two weeks. When I caught enough fish to feed an army I thought I needed to change my makeup. When I was changing it and fixing myself up I realised something I've never really realised before. I need plastic surgery. I'm serious, my face is messed up. My nose is fat and long, my lips are fat, my eyes are way too big and I have no boobs. Why would Jonathan want to date me? Why? What is so good about me that a handsome man such as Jonathan would want to have a relationship with me? And why am I always looking on the bad side of things? As I sat around the campfire that night, Jonathan came over and sat with me.
"Jonathan..." I said slowly.
"Yes, Melody?" he replied.
"Do you honestly think I'm... ugly? I mean, I won't care if you do... but I want to know if you think I am or not." I said.
"What?" Jonathan said. "Are you crazy, Melody? You're a beautiful woman. What makes you think you aren't?"
"Well..." I said as I thought. "I just thought I looked ugly."
"Well you're not." he said. "There's no doubt about that."
I thought to myself, either Jonathan is blind or he just doesn't want me to get upset.
Jonathan got up and kissed my hand.
"Melody," he said as he held my hand. "You are the most beautiful woman I have ever met. You are the most talented woman I have ever met. Everything about you makes me wonder why there aren't more people like you in the world."
I couldn't predict what crazy thing he was going to say next, but I acted as though I thought he was being romantic.
"Melody..." he said and paused for a moment.
He got down on one knee. My brain started going crazy and I had all these different thoughts swirling around in my head.
"You are the one for me," Jonathan said. "So I am tempted to ask every second I am with you, this one question... these four words."
I stood there in shock, looking into Jonathan's eyes. Usually when I look into peoples' eyes I can predict what they're going to say next, but my mind was blank for thoughts.
"Melody Shoph..." Jonathan said as he reached into his back pocket. "Will you marry me?"
I was so shocked, yet so happy. I didn't know what to say. It was a big question but I just didn't have the answer. I looked at the sparkling diamond ring as I thought how much time and money it would have costed Jonathan to get that. He looked at me with his beautiful light blue eyes through his sunglasses. He smiled at me with his white teeth.
"Oh..." I said admiringly as I picked up the ring and put it on my finger. "It's so beautiful."
"Yes," Jonathan said as he placed his hands over his heart. "Nearly as beautiful as you."
I had finally made up my mind for the answer to Jonathan's question.
"Yes!" I beamed as I leapt into Jonathan's arms. "Yes I will!"
"Thank goodness!" Jonathan said. "I was thinking you'd say no for second there!"
That was it. My horrible life had suddenly changed into a wonderful life.
The next day, early in the morning at about 6:00 AM, the taxi arrived to take us home.
"37 Watervilla street?" the taxi driver asked.
"Yes." I said as I nodded my head.
"Ok," the taxi driver said. "Off we go."
That night, Jonathan came over for dinner.
"Melody," he said as we ate our fish. "I've been thinking, since we're engaged, that we should maybe move in together?"
"I think that's a very good idea," I said. "I'm sick of this little house and we have enough money to move. Maybe we could start a family."
Jonathan looked shocked at the last sentence I said at first, then he looked happy. "Good idea," he said. "When do you want to move?"
"Tomorrow." I said. Jonathan's eyes widened.
"Tomorrow?" he said. "Isn't that a bit too soon?"
"Not for me." I said.
"Ok," Jonathan said. "Tomorrow it is."
After I finished my dinner I walked upstairs to find a house on the internet. There were all kinds of houses. Some were large, some were small. Some were modern and some were old fashioned. It took me a long time to find the house I had always wanted, but I had finally found it. It's now 9:30 AM on Thursday. Jonathan has to go to work and I have just got a new job as a substitute teacher in the Education Department. I am looking forward to my first day at work. Our house is very beautiful, and the first thing Jonathan and I did was get into our swimmers and slide into the pool. After Jonathan and I were home from work we had a talk on the sofa.
"Jonathan," I said. "I want to start a family with you."
Jonathan hesitated a bit and looked a bit nervous, until he finally said. "I'd love to."
I smiled. "I think you'd be a wonerful father." I said.
"Oh," he said. "If you say that, you don't know me half as well as I thought you did."
I laughed softly as I snuggled up to Jonathan. "I love you." I said, looking deeply into Jonathan's lovely light blue eyes.
"I love you too, Melody." Jonathan said lovingly.
Just as I was just starting to cuddle Jonatahn, his cell phone started ringing.
"Hello?" he answered. He paused as the person on the other line began talking. "Yes," he said as he nodded his head and paused a little longer. "Yes, that's fine. You can come over now if you like." he said and paused for about 4 seconds. "Goodbye." he said as he hung up the phone.
"That was work," he said, turning to me. "One of my co-workers are coming over."
"Ok," I said. "That's fine, I'll be in our bed." I said as I got up and walked to our room.
Just as I was falling asleep I heard the hot tub turn on. I was suspicious to who was in the tub so I got up and I saw the most heartbreaking thing I have ever seen. Jonathan and is co-worker Alyssa were in the tub making out. How could Jonathan ever do this to me? I sat and thought about what I should do. Do I confront him when he comes to bed about it? Do I let him be until he lets me know, so then I can trust him? Do I give him hints that I know what he has done? Do I just run out there now and go frantic at the two of them in the act? I had no idea what I should do, so I lay in bed and thought. Before I could even start to think about what I should have done to Jonathan, I was out like a light. I woke up in the morning with the answer; let him tell me himself without even hinting about it.
As I drove to work so many thoughts were spinning through my head, I could barely think straight. Why would Jonathan propose to me and then a few days later go and do that? What if what I saw was just a dream or didn't really happen? What if I sleep talk about it and Jonatan hears?
I was just a nervous wreck at work all day.
As I was drinking my after work hot chocolate, Jonathan came over and sat next to me.
"Melody," Jonathan said nervously. "There's something I want to tell you."
I could've bet my life he was going to tell me about him and Alyssa.
"Okay," I said. "Tell me."
"Well..." he began. "I really want to start a family with you."
I sat there and thought for a moment. What if he's just going to take my baby and go off with Alyssa? Maybe Alyssa can't have children and she wants to start a family? I couldn't think straight, so I decided to follow my heart.
"Of course," I beamed. "I'd love to!"
Jonathan smiled. Then his face fell. "But there's also something else I need to tell you."
I sipped my hot chocolate and looked at him. "What is it?"
I sat in silence as he spoke.
"Last night when my co-worker, Alyssa, came over," he said nervously and he sounded very guilty. "We weren't just discussing work..."
I looked at him. "Well... what were you doing then?"
"We were in the tub... I just... uh..." he said as he held the back of his neck. "I found out that she was my long lost sister."
I just sat there. I was paralized. I could barely even blink my eyes.
"We were in the tub and she just hugged me." he said. "I felt like I was doing something wrong so I thought I should tell you."
I smiled to myself. Jonathan really is an honest, trusting guy.
That night before we went to sleep, Jonathan and I sat up for a while and talked.
"Melody," Jonathan said. "I want to try for a baby."
I smiled. "I do too." I said happily.
"Now?" Jonathan asked.
"Yes." I nodded.
We snuggled up and then we tried for our first child.
Around a month later I was very surprised to see a new baby bump.
"Jonathan!" I beamed as he woke up early that morning. "I'm pregnant!"
Jonathan smiled. "That's great honey!" he said happily.
"Wow.." Jonathan said in amazement. "My first child to my true love."
I smiled. "Soon we'll have to get married too." I said.
"I'll make sure we get married before the baby is born." Jonathan said.
"It doesn't matter," I said. "Just as long as we get married. That's all I care about."
About 5 months later I started to feel bad pains in my stomach. I knew this was it; I was about to have a baby. I could see Jonathan in the corner of my eyes. He looked startled to see that I was about to have a baby. Our life was about to change in a great way; we'd have a new baby to nourish and watch grow into an adult. I screamed out loudly in pain. "HELP!!" I screeched. "Aaaaah! HELP ME!!!"
Jonathan's face looked very worried. "Hang in there, Mel!" He said worriedly. "You'll get there!"
Then the pain suddenly just started to fade away, then before I knew it I was holding our new baby boy; Isaac Jason Hart.
"Oh!" I cheered. "He's beautiful!"
"Yes," Jonathan said. "Just like you."
I blushed lightly. "No," I said. "More like you."
What a great Christmas present; a little baby boy! My life was so perfect...
and then I woke up from it. My wonderful life was only a dream... why did I have to wake up?
