Cara Young - Story Card

Last week I got the best news – I got into college!!!  My first choice.  I have three scholarships and they cover almost everything.  I can’t wait to start.  I graduate from Northern High in four months, I turn 18 in five months, quit my job at the ice cream shop in six months, and I start my freshman orientation in seven months and six days…

Brian was happy for me when he heard, but then he was like, “Does that mean you’re going to move away?”  And I was thinking, “Hello, it’s like  a thousand miles from here…” but I just said, “I’m not thinking about that today.”

I know Brian isn’t “the one…” but it’s just been so hard to break it off with him…


Brian White's Story

I still remember the first time I met Cara. It was at an all-ages dance and she was dancing around with her friends. I bought her a Coke and we started talking. I asked her for her number and I couldn’t believe it when she gave it to me. It was like the sky opened up and God was smiling down on me. I knew that I had to have her, and if I had her, then everything would be alright.

I’m good to her. I treat her like a princess. I’m 5 years older than she is, so I can protect her. She doesn’t know how cruel the world can be. And with me by her side, she won’t have to.

I’m an assistant manager at the grocery store where I’ve been for the last three years. It’s OK, I guess. Long hours, but it’s not to hard. I’m not sure what’s next…
