Alison was once very outgoing. She was bubbly. Sense the accident she was nore reserve. She was aloof. She still just as bubbly on the outside but she would not let anyone see that side of her. She eas even reserve around her family. She was a little less rigid around them. She was still not quite the same old ali as she had been.
She was ok w ith the move. The whole family had suported the move including her. It was a good move for her dad. It was a huge promotion for him. It was a qiuet peacefull area. She liked the animity. In her old town everyone knew her secret.
Her old friends looked at her with pitty.she was liked a broken doll. They lost the respect they had had for her. She did not want to be considered damaged good. She was disabled not deflective.
She liked tim almost from the beginning. She was afraid. Afraid of how he would reactt if he knew the extent of her disiablity.
It was a sunday he preached. She was excited to hear him preach. She liked to get dolled up anyways. She was very girlie. She could not wait to see him.
He arived at the church at the usual time. He was getting things ready for Sunday school. He knew ali and her family came for the morning service not sunday school. He was still woried that he would lose her to a more contempeary church. He tried not to dwell on that too much. It was hard not to.
After sunday school he saw her family come into the sanctuary. He went over to her. He was always nervous around her. He did not want to be a past.
It was not just nerves. It was a kind of butterflies in her stomic. He asked hia dad if the butterflies go away. He told him that he still got buterfilies when he saw his mom. He did not know if that happened for everyone but it did for that. He hoped that would be how it was for him and ali.
He tried to get a hold of his whits. He took a deep breath and went over to her. “Hi ali.” he said. “Hi Timmy! ” she said in a playfull tone. “How are you?” he asked. “I am doing good.” she said.
“You look nice today.” he told her. She blushed a bit. “Thank you. ” she said with a huge smile. “I meen it.” he said.”i know that. You look nice today too. ” she said. He thanked her.
“So are you preachig tonight?” she asked. “Yes indeed. ” he said.”excellent. “She said.
She liked when he preached. She liked his dad’s preaching but she liked his preaching. She hoped she did not go too overbored with her flirting. He feared the same thing .
She wanted to see him after the service. She was going to. She had some medical isues that changed her mind. They seemed to leave in a bit of a hurry. She did shake his hand on the way out.
“I am so glad you all are coming. “Tim told them. They thanked him. He gave her a big smile and she winked at him. He beleved that things were good between them.
That night, he saw her and her family. She came up to him. “Hi Timmy. ” she said.”hi ally.”he said. She looked fine. Whatever the reason for the family rushing out she seemed fine now.
“How are you tonight? ” he asked. “I am good..i took a nap this afternoon. I get tired easily.”she said. “I see. Are you feeling regreshed now?” he asked. “I am not planing to fall asleep during your mesege. ” she said. He smiled. “Well Thats good to hear. First sign of eyes close i get the skirt gun out!” he said. “I realy hope your kidding. ” she said. “We will see. ” he said. They both laughing.
She loved his sense of humor. She loved how he was so playfull. She loved to bantor back and frth with him. He loved her humer. He loved teasing her and being teased by her. He felt so at home with her.she felt the same way.
She felt like she could be herself around him. She felt safe. She felt like she could let her gourd dowm even if it was for just a bit.
He went back to the podum and got ready to begin the serice. She really admited him. It was nice to see him setving the lord in the way he did at a young age. She liked that about him.
He seemed older then he was. He was 25 but he apeared to be much older. He was mature but he had wisdom. He had the spriruel gift of teaching and posibly preaching as well. He loved the lord.
He was a bit more comservitive then she was. She hoped he would not mind that she listened to contemporary Christian music and wore pants on ocasion. She was wiling to let him lead should They decide to marry one day.
Then she got nervous. Was she kidding ? Could he ever even consider dating her? Was marriage ever really a posibility? Was she getting too far ahead of herself? Was she hoping for something that would never happen. Was she just kidding herself? She did not know.
She was nervous. She feared getting too close to him. She feared his rejection. She feared his total acceptance only to be rejected later. She feared him losing interest after he learned the truth. She did not want that. She feared that was what would happen.
She had to walk away. She could not risk being hurt. The days had been heard sense she was injured in the accident. She felt like she had to claw her way to where she was now. She wanted to rest in someone else’s arm. She feared no one could accept her. She was content but wanted someone to spend her life with. She wanted it to be tim. Could he accept her. Why couldn’t she had met him before the car accident? Why now?
She tried to stay calm. After the service she said hi to him.”i liked your message. ” she said. “I am glad ally. ” he said.
“You are going to be used mightily for the lord. ” she said. “I realy hope so. I want to be. I want to do well abd finish well. ” he said. “Keep working at it. Dont give up. Press on. “She advised him.he promised her he would.
She greated him on her way out. He shock her hand. He greated her parents and sisters as well. He was glad to see her and her family. He really liked her. He was begining to think about her as a potential wife. He wanted to get to know her more.
As tim and aly hang out more, tim considers a posible future with her. Tim asks her out to a date but she declines due to her medical isues but regrets her decision.
