I was emailing with a fan, and she mentioned that she can't "see" Andi and Cory ever getting together (as in getting married). She says she likes them better as friends and can't see them any other way. I like them better as friends too, but one can never tell. Here is a true story. Keep reading.
My son Andrew always loved Melinda Jane (you can see where I get the names for my characters). Ever since they were children in my once-a-week homeschool co-op at my house, Andrew was always trying to be next to Jane and hold her hand or something. Jane, on the other hand, mostly liked to beat Andrew up during break time out in the backyard. And she could do it too, as she was an "Andi" kind of a girl and very lively.
Note: Jessica ("Andi" on the covers of the CCA books) is standing right behind Jane. She is 8 years old, and Andrew and Jane are 6 years old.
When Andrew and Melinda Jane were ten years old, she and her family moved across the state and they lost contact with each other. Another ten years went by, and Andrew was at the university, about an hour and half from Jane's college up north. But they did not reconnect until as a family we all went to Jane's older sister's wedding one fall. There, Andrew and Jane reconnected and one year later . . . they were married!
So, I guess that childhood friends can marry . . . especially if God has set them apart from their youth for this purpose. Now Andrew is in the Air Force and Jane is going to be an Air Force pilot (I told you she had a lot of gumption! The sky's the limit with that little girl).
