There was this couple once who'd gone through some rough patches. (And, let's be honest, she was the problem.) They'd had their ups and downs, their break-ups and make-ups, but it didn't make sense for them to stay together anymore. Probably the wisest thing would have been for him to break up with her and forget her.
But he wouldn't.
He loved her, was kinda blinded by his love, and determined to stay with her. Even when she dumped him.
She became his self-proclaimed enemy.
But that didn't stop his love.
She kept making bad choices, kept shunning his attention and help. She got pretty deep into trouble and in one huge, sloppy mess and the judge decided she would be given the death penalty.
This guy was so in love with her that he couldn't stand to see her killed, even though he knew, better than anyone else, that she deserved it.
So he took the death penalty for her.
You should know that he didn't stay dead. He rose again and continued to pursue the love of his life, and her acceptance of his love means nothing can separate them again.
The happy ending of this story depends on you.
