I went on a trip to Las Vegas last summer; it was there that I had one of the most bitter-sweet epiphanies of my life. It was scorching hot, but the Las Vegas heat didn't burn me nearly as badly as the fire burning in my heart. His name was Justin. He had me hook, line, and sinker from the second his eyes met mine. At that exact moment the phrase, "my heart skipped a beat" had never seemed so clear. He stopped me dead in the casino as I was walking just to compliment me on my dress. He rambled on about how beautiful I was. and how many women he has seen that couldn't compare. He told me my accent was cute; I replied to all his compliments with gratitude in my thickest southern belle accent, of course. We sat there and talked at a black jack table for just a few minutes. It seemed much longer though, because time literally stood still. Nothing else mattered to us at that moment. He took my number and asked me on a date for the following night. I eagerly exchanged numbers with him and then went back to meet with my friends. They said I seemed like I had been drinking; I joked and told them that I was just drunk on love. That whole night I was on cloud 9. I didn't know if he would call, or if everything he told me was just part of some wicked plan to deceive me. I didn't care. All I knew was I met an amazing guy and we had a connection. When my phone rang the next night I nearly broke three bones trying to lunge across the room to get to it. His voice on the other end was just as sweet as it had been the night before. He told me to meet him down stairs in the hotel lobby at 8. I had a fairy tale night that every girl dreams of. I felt like I had been waiting my entire life for that night. We danced, we laughed, and he kissed me like I had never been kissed before in my life. I had assumed I would have reservations about getting so close to someone I barely knew, but I didn't. It all felt so right. We ran through the casinos of Las Vegas like two crazy people who were in love. It was sheer perfection, or at least it was as close as I had ever gotten to it. When Justin took me back to the hotel that night, it was the last time I saw him. We talked on the phone back and forth for a little while. We would Skype and text too, but all of that soon fizzled out. We tried to meet up a couple of times. Nothing seemed to work, we just never could get the timing right. There's no room in this world for two penniless college students to fall in love. Our relationship ended nearly as fast as it began, but I wouldn't trade it for all the riches in the world. Justin taught me something. He taught me that I am worthy of a man who will treat me with respect. In the past, every relationship I've been in was just plain bad. It felt so rewarding for someone to want me just as much as I wanted them. I may never see him again, and if I don't that's okay. He has given me the will not to give up on finding my prince. Because of him and our forty-eight hours we spent together in Las Vegas I am forever changed. It was the greatest experience of my life thus far. The saying, "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" holds no truth in my eyes. I brought back more than I could have ever imagined.
