Cammy reflects on her younger self and her reluctance to settle into something serious. She reminisces the year her troubles started -- she was sixteen, confused, and missing her father who'd recently moved out of the house and into the city.
Cammy longs to be like her friends, but she just can't make herself fall in love. Young men are charmed by her and she has no problem getting a date, but Cammy has no desire to commit herself to a steady.
Though Cammy worries, her mother reassures her that when the right boy comes along, all will fall into place. Cammy, on the other hand, isn't so sure.
And so, wedding plans commence -- a house is found, a dress is bought, and rings are picked out. All seems to be headed in the right direction, that is, until the rehearsal.
In addition to runaway brides, another common theme in romance comics is a fear of marriage due to a parental divorce. As a child of divorce myself, I completely understand Cammy's fear of tying the knot. I hope you enjoyed this sweet and hopeful story to round out the month of February! While the color of the couple's skin may be a rarity in romance comics, their story is one of the most universal of all.
Thanks so much for reading!
