The Brother In-Law Part I

The brother In - Law Part I A long time ago, there lived a young couple. They were very much in love. About a year after they got married - they had their first child. It was a lovely baby boy. They named him Christian. He was loved from the start. The father worked hard in the field and the mother in the house. Five years went by and the wife told the husband that she was expecting another child. The husband was overjoyed. He told his wife - I hope it's a girl this time. The day finally came and a daughter did arrive. She was named Christine. She was beautiful and a gift from God. Christine was loved from the beginning. They were all very happy. Life in the farm was good. The parents saw their kids growing up. They all worked very hard to keep the place going. Little did they know that destiny would change their lives. The parents were very proud of their children. Christine was going to be fifteen years old. On her Birthday - her parents gave her a big party. She wore a beautiful dress that made her look like a princess. Two days after her Birthday, Christian had to go to town. He invited Christine to go with him. she accepted and the left very early. It would take them most of the day. While they were in town doing their errands, back home the mother and father were doing their chores, when some outlaws came, robbed them, killed them and burned their home. When Christian and Christine returned - they could not believe what they saw. nothing was left. They both cried a lot. Christain burried their parents. They both prayed and said good bye...
To be continued.... I hope you are enjoying this...
