Tonight marks a year since Jack was sent overseas. Tonight’s banquet is a celebration of the company’s homecoming. For Jeff and Jill, it is so much more. They were married ten years ago, tonight.
She weaves her way through the crowd, unaware of her beauty. Her eyes are on her Prince Charming. Her auburn hair flows in soft waves to the small of her back.

This is her heaven on earth.
