Alyssa Gets Married . . . and Then Runs Off
In an attempt to put James behind her and start fresh, Alyssa begins dating a local boy. She opens up to him, trusts him, and then asks him to marry her. The two seem happy together, but Alyssa still continues to think about James and what her life would be like with him in it.
The night before her wedding, James shows up to the café Alyssa's working in. He doesn't offer an in-depth explanation as to why he's decided to make a visit to Alyssa, but he does let her know that his dad died. Still infuriated over the letter he sent her, Alyssa shoos James away and tries to focus on her wedding day. James leaves the next day and finds Alyssa in her wedding dress in the middle of the road where she jumps in the car, and the two take off with no true destination in sight.
