"Oh, Adam," she sighed, "what are we going to do?"

"We can call each other," he reminded her. "We've done it before."

"The jet's ready," announced Melvin, coming to where they stood. "Hello, Charlie. Sorry, but I've got to steal Adam from you. It's time to go."

Adam followed Melvin to the door, still grasping Charlie's hand. Outside, camera flashes and television news crews peered through the large glass windows, witnessing every moment, some even giving live coverage.

Adam turned to Charlie and smiled sadly. He tried to let go of her hand, but she wouldn't let him. Then, realizing what she was doing, her hand let go of his. She smiled bravely, straining every nerve within her, to hold back the grief she felt growing inside.

"That's my girl," whispered Adam, as he turned to leave.

"Adam?" called Charlie, a hint of frantic in her voice.

He looked at her expectantly. She wanted to beg him not to leave, but knew in her heart that he was only doing what had to be done.

"I love you," she said one more time.

He smiled proudly at her.

"Amor gignit amorem," he replied, and with that, Adam disappeared into the crowd, outside.

Charlie moved closer to the window, to see her beloved board the jet. Soon, the aircraft taxied down the runway, and took off into the clear horizon. Charlie watched it, until she could see it no more.

"What did he just say before he left?" wondered Kevin, out loud.

"'Amor gignit amorem,' is Latin for, 'Love begats love,'" explained Charlie. "The only time I ever said that in front of Adam, was the night he led me to Christ. Imagine him remembering that!"

Soon, Charlie was aware that every camera was on her, now that the famous Wallace Shipley had left. Securing her tightly by the upper arm, Kevin walked Charlie out to the landrover.

Questions such as "How are you feeling?" and "Show us the ring!" came from the reporters, while fans and well-wishers tried to get as close as they could to Wallace Shipley's fiancée.

None to soon for Charlie, Kevin pulled the vehicle away, and they were on their way back home.

"So much for not tipping the media off on which vehicle is ours," sighed Charlie. "Every time they see this landrover, they'll know it's me!"

"I know," sighed Kevin. "That's what I told Mr. Clark, but he said it would be worth it to have you down there to see him off. Then he gave me money to buy a new vehicle."

"He really did that?" asked Charlie, a little incredulously.

"Yes, ma'am," replied Kevin, with admiration in his voice. "He's a good man."

"The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and He delighteth in his way."
~ Psalm 37:23 ~

"I CAN do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."
~ Philippians 4:13 ~
