My name is Meghan Trevor and I've got a story to share. Saturday morning 7th of April 1990 I married the man of my dreams all seemed like a happily ever after story, but only for a short time. He was deployed for war, a war without end, a war that would take his life a war that made me a widow, I waited for him, days turned to months and months turned to years. Years passed no contact from him. I accepted what is (he dead) and moved on. Started a new family with a man that was loving and patient.

On Valentine's day my world turned upside down yet again. I guess fairy tale endings aren't for me. He was back was he a ghost I couldn't tell. He looked alright but something changed. He wasn't the man that left for war. The war changed him. So I was plunged into a life of confusion, delima. I have a new family now, but my past had come back to life. Who do I stand for and with. In the End I'm just a woman searching for peace and happiness

Yes I Do!
My name is Meghan Trevor and I've got a story to share. Don't tell me I messed up after reading this cause I know I did. Some will say I should have waited, but I did wait. Others would say I should have waited longer, but 8 years was long enough.  Here's my story.....         Saturday morning, 7th of April 1990. I  married the man of my dreams. I've known him for 4years and everyone could tell we were compatible. We loved each other so much we decided to tie the knot at the beach with our parents and few friends present. I was lucky to have this man. He was tall, calm, intelligent and the true definition of handsome. You might be wondering how we met.  We met at a friend's function, it was an all party and the theme of the event was TRUE BORN AMERICANS. I could remember I was skeptical about attending but my friend Julie who is a journalist with the MUNCH NEWSPAPER insisted I accompany her and so I fell for it. It was love at first sight. I was tired of the whole speech from dignitaries and it seemed boring cause all they talked about was leadership and how to take the country to the next level, I wasn't cut out for all of that, you could say I was an apathist. My friend Julie was busy making conversation and interviews with top officials and special guests  who were in attendance at the event,   I left the hall to have some fresh air when I saw him. The lights reflected on his shiny smooth skin, his strides were majestic and commanding, who could this be? I wondered as  he made his way towards me, he's cologne filled the air as he sat opposite me. I couldn't stop staring. "HEY" he waved, catching my gaze, for a second time frozen and everything just seemed right. I felt awkward, I looked down at my shoes avoiding his Captivating gaze, and waved him back. I guess you're bored with all the talk in there right? Oh no! I said and laughed. Oh forgive my manners, I'm Rolly, Rolly Sheriff from San Diego but I was raised in Pennsylvania, what about you? he asked. I'm Meghan Trevor from Chicago and was raised here all my life. I was shy but his voice was soothing and I felt comfortable in no time. We talked and laughed about a few topics, when Julie called out to me" Oh here you are, been looking everywhere for you" as she walked towards where we were seated. I'm sorry dear, I just needed some fresh air. Oh yeah I met a friend.... Rolly, yeah I know him Julie said. Rolly is a good and loyal citizen of our country. She said with a smile. I was wondering what she meant by that. What does he do anyway? Or is he one of those overly privileged men who got into office and spent the people's money? Well to be honest I've never loved anyone who comes from the Government office, they all looked the same to me. We have to go, Rolly, Julie said to him, bringing me back from my thoughts. We exchanged phone numbers and said our goodbyes . Julie and I got to the car and drove home. The whole time I kept thinking about him and all I did was bring up discussion about him asking Julie a couple of questions. What's going on girl? You've never talked about a guy the way you did today. Julie asked. Well I'm in love I said to her and smiled shyly. Right from that moment Rolly and I got better in our relationship. We went out a lot and I couldn't get enough of him.  And back to our wedding day, I couldn't believe I would be married any sooner. And here I am standing in front of my soon to be husband, I couldn't help but cry as we exchanged our vows and then I heard the Pastor say you may kiss your bride and we kissed as the audience clapped. I couldn't imagine my life without this man. Everything felt perfect, from my dream gown to having my wedding performed at the beach it was just the perfect scene for me.  We danced with a few friends as well as received comments from our friends and took pictures with friends and well wishers. We came to the end of the party as we were ushered out to where our car was parked. Rolly opened the door for me to get in and then we zoomed as I got my head out from the car glass to wave to everyone who came out. Our honeymoon was for two weeks and was spent at an exquisite hotel. We did everything together. There's really nothing we haven't tried. We were the happiest couple on earth at that moment. 2weeks were over and we had to get back to our normal lives.  Rolly worked with the military. He was a highly ranked and celebrated officer because of his achievements in the military. I owned a flower shop which was just a few meters away from home. We lived happily and life was better for us both.   Rolly got a call to report to base. He was being deployed. The Americans and the Russian were at war. This war has been raging for years now Hence it was called the UNENDING war. it's been on for so long nobody knows it's origin, what started it, or who even started it. All people knew was it has claimed the lives of so many people over the years. Rolly was being redeployed. My husband gets to fight for his country once again.  I wasn't happy to hear this.  Its been barely 5months since we got married and now I'm going to lose my husband to a f*****g war but why him. I tried talking him out of it and making him  understand where I was coming from, asking him to decline the offer but, he refused, "I'm not a coward, I'm a patriot, I'll serve my country in all capability even if it's the last thing I do" those were his exact words. I knew he was all this: brave, courageous, smart and fearless, but for just this once I wished he wasn't, I wished he didn't have to go, I didn't want to lose my husband.   A day before he left, his friends came over to see him. After I had served them with drinks I stood by the corner to listen to their conversation. "But you know you can decide to stay back from the operation, you just got married and it's totally understandable" this came from his best friend Troy. "Oh you know how Major Peter can be, he won't accept that especially with my position in the military" Rolly replied. I couldn't bear listening to this conversation, I ran to my room and cried myself out to sleep. After Roy's friends left, he made his way to the room. I was fast asleep and I didn't know when he got in. "Hey baby, you slept already," Rolly said to me while I snuggled up and tried to clean the dirt from my eyes. `` You've been crying again? Rolly asked as he wrapped his arms around me as tears rolled down from my cheeks. "Oh baby stop doing this, I'll be back I promise you. Just trust me" Rolly said this trying to comfort me as he cuddled me from behind and kissed me.
