Clouds began to form above planet Earth that were as dark as the black hole in our universe with a looming air breeze like the smell of dead corpses. The date: December 31, 1999. The time: 11:58. The smell of dead corpses was peeling the leafs off plants, shredding the barks of trees, eating the flesh inside of people, and peeling skin by skin off the animals until nothing was left, but their bones. Killing them all if they were exposed to the smell this is happening all across the world. Was it the sign that meant the end of the world was coming as the new millennium year 2000 was arriving? While out on all the beach shores across the world, the oceans were leaving hundreds of thousands of dead fish and all marine life on the beach shores. All the rivers, lakes, and oceans around the world turned blood red. Real blood. The streets of cities and towns all across the world were all deserted like the Mojave desert in California.
The time now 11:59, where something totally amazing was happening up in outer space where nobody was able to see past the dark clouds surrounding planet Earth. Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn aligned each other with Earth and the sun. What did this mean to us on planet Earth? Out of nowhere meteors and stars from space were joining together to become several large fire balls heading towards earth. The time now 11:59:50. I counted the last ten seconds to our doomsday on Earth. 10 ... 9 ... 8 ... 7 ... 6 ... 5 ... 4 ... 3 ... 2 ... and ... 1. Once I said one, my fears and worries were answered. The Earth began to shake like the 1909 San Francisco earthquake on the entire world. Sounds of sonic booms hit everywhere from California around to Japan. Paralyzing the hearing of people and animals that could burst your eardrums in a fraction of a second. The destruction and the end of planet Earth was here. Then right before my eyes a big and very bright light shined on the entire planet Earth. It..... it .... it was.....
As the morning sun was rising over the mountains of the Angeles National Forest in Los Angeles, California. It was a cool morning on February 14, 1998, also known as Valentines Day. As I, David Anderson, age 29, and my girlfriend for five years, Jennifer Allen, age 28. We’re awaken to the sounds of birds singing out on our house porch. We live in --our first house of only two years-- a gated community in Bel-Air across from UCLA. We both have discussed about getting married, but it is a big commitment for the both of us even though we live with each other like husband and wife for about four years. That's all going to change after I surprise my girlfriend right before we leave to work this morning.
We both have high paying jobs, I have a job as a lawyer for the city of L.A. and my girlfriend is a bank secretary for First Interstate Bank. We both work in the downtown L.A. area, we are separated by only a few blocks away. We travel with each other to downtown L.A. even though its a long drive, but we like it, and its o.k. with us.
Just before we headed out the door and drove off with each other in our brand new 1998 Honda Civic, I quickly went to the closet of our bedroom and pulled out the dozen roses and a big heart shaped box of chocolate that I bought for my girlfriend because it was Valentines Day. When I gave her my Valentines Day gifts, she was very happy, and then she came over and gave me a big kiss on my lips. Then I returned the kiss right back to her.
Right then I knelt down to my knees, turned to my inside pocket of my suit and pulled out a 24 karat double band diamond ring and proposed my girlfriend of five years to marry me. She immediately cried and said the words that sealed the marriage between me and her: "yes I will." We kissed for a while and then we left our house and headed to our jobs in L.A.
