Ashley Marie Carlson - Story Card

I’m Ashley and I live with my parents and my sisters.  I am the oldest.  Next time I blow out my candles, I will be 17.  We live in the country.  My dad’s a mechanic and can fix anything.  My mom does hair at a salon in town.

After I graduate, I want to be a flight attendant and travel, travel, travel!! Flight attendants get to help people feel comfortable.  I’m good at that.  In my room I have posters of the Eiffel Tower and Buckingham Palace.

I’ve gone out with a few boys, like to the movies and stuff.  But nothing more.  Like Pastor Thomas says, “A woman’s body is a flower that only blooms in holy matrimony.”  Then I met Jimmy… He’s totally cute and smart.  I know we’ve only been together for one month and he is 20, but I’m pretty sure he is “the one”.  OMG don’t get me started!!!  I could talk about him all day!!

James (Jimmy) Woodward's Story

I’m Jimmy and I’ll be 21 next month. I can’t believe I’m back here, living in my parents’ basement. It’s not like I didn’t do anything while I was gone. I got my degree from a community college. First in my family to go past high school. I had a job in a packing plant and they said I was “management material.” Seriously. But then it went south. I’m just here for a little while, until I can get back on my feet again. 

I looked for work hard for a month when I got back home. But the only offer I got was at the local burger joint and I swear I still have nightmares for the four years I worked there before. No way, man. Not doin’ that again.

So I’ve just been layin’ low. Been lifting weights, playing video games, and checking out chicks online. Then I met Ashley. Damn! She's the one good thing I’ve got goin’. She’s got these huge blue eyes. Man, when I’m with her, everything’s OK. She makes me feel like I’ve got another chance.
