Before I recount the event I am here to tell you about, I must first answer a question that will soon pop in the minds of those of you who know me. “Aren’t you married?” Answer: Not any more!
But do not morn that lost time, for it’s passing has opened the way to where I should have always been.
An Amazing Event...
At 12:14pm January 3, 2009 I was hard at work, as usual, when an order for a Fairy statue came across my screen. A quick check determined that the item was not in stock. My standard operating procedure in such a case is to call the customer directly, and determine the action they want to take. I did this and my life changed.
I called the customer, who is located in Florida, and informed her of the company I am with and that the item she ordered was not in stock. The woman promptly informed me that she had not placed an order with my company, nor had she even herd of it. She asked me to read off the personal information that I had for the order, and she confirmed that it was her information with the exception of the email address. The email address belonged to her husband that had died three years before. She then asked me what the order was for and I informed her it was for a Fairy statue called ‘Forever Young’.
Her 17 year old daughter it seems loves and believes in Fairies, so she asked her daughter if she had placed the order, she had not. She then wanted to know how the order was paid for. I informed her that it was a check or money order payment selection and that had the item been in stock it would not have shipped till payment was received. She was relieved by this news and informed me that she had one more daughter that she needed to check with, and would I give her my contact info so that she could get back to me. I told her my name and she said that she used to know someone by that name and was I from Mass. I told her that I was, and she asked if I was married to (insert ex wife’s name). My response was; “Ya...OK....I was, but not anymore” Mean while I’m looking around for hidden cameras.
There was a pause and then she told me her maiden name, and my response was “Oh my god! No way!” We talked for a long while catching up, but before the call ended she asked when the order had been placed. I told her that it was fifteen minutes before I called her, and she told me that that was impossible as she had been on the computer for over a half hour before that and not connected to the internet. It was also the only computer in the house.
We tried to determine who could have placed the order, and the possibility that it was someone that knew us both. We hit a dead end. No one that she knew at this time knew about me and I was able to say the same of her. There was also the fact that no one she knew of would have known the email address for her husband. As he had hardly ever used it.
A step back:
She and I meet when she was 18 and I was 20. We fell deeply in love with each other and became engaged. Unfortunately we had different plans for our lives. She wanted the little white house with the white picket fence, the 2.5 kids, and the 9 to 5, and I wanted the pyramids of Egypt. We both knew that the other would not be happy trapped in the others dream, so we broke up. No fighting, no hard feelings, just understanding.
Every now and then, among my travels, I would show up to re-connect, and it was always as if I had never left. Instantly we would be talking and sharing everything. There was nothing we couldn’t share.
On one reunion she was involved with someone, but they were not getting along as she would have wished. They hadn’t been together for months. So we wound up together, and she wound up pregnant.
Now I must admit here that I was not the most stable of men at the time. The road called to me and she knew it. When I realized the child was mine, she told me that she didn’t want to leave her husband because he was reliable and stable. I did not argue the point and he believed my child to be his. I also believed that she would be better off with him as a father, I was wrong . But that is another post
Our daughter is now a Wicken
Back to the present:
Three years after the death of her 3rd husband, and the only good one of the three. (One month before the order was placed) Her daughters were telling her that she should start dating. She told them that if there was love for her out there, that he would find her and come to her. (She has since revealed to me that I was the one she was thinking of.) Her 17 year old said the fairies would help, and our daughter (the Wicken) Said that she would cast a spell of true love.
One month later the order was placed,. I now live with my one true love, my daughter knows who I am, and she is just like me.
To sum it up:
The order was for fairies, her 17 year old believes in fairies. Fairies grant wishes, and my wish and my loves, was that we would at least see each other again. Our daughter is a witch who cast a spell of seeking true love. The IP address of my love does not match the IP address of the order.
We still do not know who placed the order, but we know that we are right were we are supposed to be.
