Today was the day. It was Christmas Eve! It was like every other Christmas. I would go over to my best friend Riley's house and I would spend it with her and her family.
My mom never spent Christmas with me. She was always at the diner working. My dad left both of us when I was 6. I haven't seen him since.
Anyways Riley and I met when I was 6. She had a little brother, Auggie and her mom, Topanga and dad, Cory. Her family was like my family.
Anyways Riley and I were sitting down at the dinning room table when her uncle Josh walked in. He hugged Riley then he hugged me. He said, "It's been awhile." I reply, "Sure has."
He then respond, "Well you grew up gorgeous." He walks away and I totally blush. My best friend looks at me and says, "You are not going to be my aunt." Josh was 17 and I was 14.
Three Years Later
Well it was Christmas time and this year Josh was coming to visit. I was 17 now and he was 20. I didn't think much about him anymore but somedays I wondered what he was doing.
Josh walked in and I looked at him and he looked at me. I blushed like I did when I was 14. He said hi to me but I could tell it was a little awkward.
The rest of night went on and I was really tired so I went to Riley's room to lie down. Once I lie down I hear the door open and to my surprise it's Josh.
He came and sat down next to me. We talked the rest of the night... But that was last year...
Josh and I have been dating ever since that night. We called each other almost everyday and saw each other every week. I loved him and he loved me.
His parents however did not like our relationship. My best friend Riley's dad was Josh's brother so he tried to talk to his parent, but they wouldn't listen. They wanted me out of his life.
I was graduating today and Josh and his parents were coming to this. I was nervous about seeing his parents but I mainly was just focused to go up on the stage get my diploma and walk off.
After we graduated I went with Riley to go look for her family. We got to her family and I couldn't find Josh. I was worried so I started calling him but no answer. Finally his mom got a call.
She had told everyone that he got into a car crash. My heart stopped and I fell to the ground. Riley's mom and dad got me up and we drove to the hospital.
We got to the hospital and everyone was worried. Eric, Josh's brother comes sits down next to me. We start talking and he says, "If anything happens to him I want you to know he loves you."
I simply respond how do you know this and that's when he shows me this ring. I feel like I'm going to throw up. The doctor calls Josh Matthews and everyone stands up the nurse says he is awake.
They said that he is stable and wants to talk to Maya. I stand up and I go to this room. He looks really bad. He has scratch marks on his face his left leg is broken.
I tell him about the ring and he then says, "Well I want to marry you." So I get down on my knee and say, "Josh Matthews will you marry me?" He says yes.
The doctors say that Josh has to go into and operation and that it might be very scary. Josh says he wants to get married right now so we have the hospitals minister/priest come to the room.
We got married and two minutes later he was getting strolled out of the room to have surgery. I walk outside back to the waiting room and tell everyone we got married.
His mom was livid.---It had been 2 hours and the doctor said, "Mrs. Matthews?" His mom stands up and so does Topanga. The doctor says, "Mrs. Maya Matthews." I stand up and walk towards him.
He says Josh is ok and is stable. He will have a long recovery but he will be ok.
5 Years Later...
We haven't talked to Josh's parents since that day. However we are happily married with out son Spencer Riley Matthews. Now we live life one step at a time.
