What's Left of Your Heart

Anna's wedding day was finally here. She planned for months and months, and in the small church with her family and friends, she was ready to take the vow's with her fiancé, David. He gently took her hand and they turned toward the altar. But, as the minister began to lead David and Anna through their vows, the unthinkable happened. A girl stood up in the middle of the congregation, walked quietly to the altar and took David's other hand. Another girl approached and stood next to the first, followed by another, and another. Soon there was a chain of six girls standing next to David.

Anna felt her lip quivering as tears welled up in her eyes. "is this some kind of joke?" she whispered to David.

"I'm sorry, Anna," he said, staring at the floor.

"Who are these girls, David? What's going on?" she gasped.

"They're girls from my past. Anna, they don't mean anything to me now...but I've given part of my heart to each of them."

"I thought your heart was mine," she said.

"It is. It is. Everything that's left is yours." A tear rolled Anna's cheek, and then she woke up.

When Anna woke up she felt betrayed. Then, she wondered how many men would be standing at the altar next to her.
