The Power of Love
Date: March 28th, 2015
Ian Anderson is an irresistible multibillionaire CEO of the
Independence artist firm, IA Independence. He has everything a man could want
and more. He has women constantly throwing themselves at him, he makes more
money in a week than most people make in a lifetime. But what does being rich
mean if you live each day unhappy?
At the age of nineteen, Ian lost his family in a horrible tragic accident. Not
knowing where to turn, or what his next step was Ian fled his town, without
thinking twice about it. More importantly though, he left behind the one person
who meant the most.
Allison was the only girl who’d ever captured Ian’s heart. They grew up
together, best friends, turned into soul mates. Allison was Ian’s heart, his
everything, the love of his life even. After all this time Ian can’t seem to
rid his thoughts of Allison, in his mind, she was the one that got away. And
even now he’s still very much in love with her. The hardest decision Ian ever
made was the decision to walk away from her. But what if the only reason you
left the person you loved was so that you could protect them?
Now, Seven years later, Ian comes face to face with Allison. Finding it hard to
stay away from her, Ian finds himself falling into old habits. Allison gets
under his skin like no one else, but when questions of the past come up will
Ian tell Allison the truth or will he flee like he did seven years ago?
When Ian and Allison run into each other again, will Ian be able to make things
right with the woman he’s always loved, or did he lose his chance? Will love
that was once so strong resurface and give him everything he hoped for through
all these years?
Will they have a chance to start over or will the past be too painful for them
“I love you Ian,”
Allison told him, as she snuggled up in his arms as they continued to stare at
the stars that lit up the night sky.
Looking over to
Allison, Ian felt his nerves come to surface. The whole reason for bringing her
to the beach for their date, rather than a restaurant, was to give her the gift
he’d bought her a week ago.
“I have something for
you,” Ian said, his voice unsteady as he reached into his pocket. He felt a
chill from the breeze around him as he lifted the box in his hand.
He watched her as her
eyes began to widen, her hand began to pull back from where it was linked with
his, and Ian could have sworn he heard her breath beginning to pick up as if
she was going into panic.
“It’s not what you
think it is,” Ian assured her, answering her unspoken thoughts. “You think I’m
asking you to marry me, but you’re wrong. I love you, but we’ve talked about
this. We’re nowhere near ready for marriage yet.” Allison let out a breath in
relief as her body relaxed. “I love you,” Ian started telling her, as he sat
himself up on his knees. “God knows I love you. Every day that I’ve known you
has been wonderful. I can’t see ever not having you in my life. I want to be
with you forever. I want to love, cherish, and protect you. Now, I know this
all sounds like a proposal, but it’s not. It’s a promise. I want to love you
for the rest of my life, and I know you want that, too,” Ian continued, opening
the box. It held a small, gold ring with an infinity sign that had sliver of a
diamond in the middle of it. It wasn’t big, but it was perfect. “It’s a promise
ring,” Ian finished and stared into her eyes as he waited for her to respond.
Allison sat in silence as she stared at him.
This was the last thing she ever expected when Ian told her he had something
for her. It was perfect. He was perfect. She felt the tears run down her cheek
as she knelt down beside him to take his hands. He wiped her tears away with
his thumb as Allison kissed his lips.
“You’re so thoughtful.
I love you, Ian. This is perfect. You’re perfect. Thank you,” Allison said, as
Ian placed the ring on her left ring finger.
“I just wanted you to
know that no matter what happens, I promise I’ll never hurt you intentionally,
and I’ll always love you.”
“Stop talking and kiss
me,” Allison demanded.
When the kiss ended,
Allison was full of emotions. She didn’t know much, but she knew from that
moment on she’d always love Ian, no matter where their lives took them.

Writing originally started for Ada as an outlet, but
became so much more for her, she considers it to actually be one of the biggest
parts of her life. Sitting at her desk, with her laptop in front of her is
where she feels the most at home, and comfortable. Its her passion, you can see
that just by look in her eyes when she talks about it. The first time she ever
let someone read her work was on Fanfiction, and then one day she messaged one
of her favorite authors about what the next step was and she encouraged her to
enter the Indie world, and so she did, with the support of her friends.
The Power of Love was originally a short story that
she started for a High School project, and eventually turned into her first
ever full length written novel. And she’s beyond proud of all she’s
accomplished with it.
She spends most of her days devouring into a new book
by just another author that she loves, and spends her nights with the fictional
characters she creates from nothing.
