Their first meeting wasn’t anything special. Not even really out of the ordinary. A boy introduced to a girl by mutual friends. A few brief words. And then the night took them in opposite directions. But the world had other plans. It was going to make sure they ran into each other again. And again. No matter what it took, Michelle and Devon were meant to be together. The Universe just knew it.

One warm summer afternoon not too long after, Devon was waiting for the bus. When out of the corner of his eye he saw the most stunningly beautiful woman he’d ever laid eyes on. She was gorgeous. And perfect in every way. And also familiar.  He attempted to use his peripheral vision to check her out, too afraid to actually say anything. When suddenly he heard a friendly, “Hi!” come out of her mouth. Michelle, seeing the handsome boy waiting for the bus, realized as she got closer that she knew him. He was the cute boy she was introduced to recently by her friend. And walking on a path right towards him couldn’t help but say hi. As Devon tried to play it cool, all he could think about was how happy he was that she stopped. But as the conversation came to a close and they both parted ways again, he couldn’t believe he’d forgotten to ask for her number.

Devon kept wondering about Michelle long after he boarded the bus. And Michelle walked straight into her house and told her roommate she had a crush. After two run-ins, the Universe decided to try one more time and placed them in the same place again just a few nights later. Not wasting a single second, Devon walked up to the beautiful brunette and asked her out. Their first meeting hadn’t been anything special. And the second time they parted ways too soon. But the third time’s a charm, as the saying goes, and they weren’t going to waste another second. They both knew it was meant to be.
