When her husband left her, it came as a total and complete shock for Laura. This was unexpected, so she was very heartbroken. Perhaps the worst part would be the fact that she got great news to spread before things took a turn for the worse. Luckily, justice was served!
Laura had assumed that she was in a happy marriage. This image disappeared when she found a note addressed to her from Jack, her husband. He left her for her sister and let Laura know through a letter!
A Massive Curveball
However, he did not know what would happen at the time he wrote this note. Laura was about to throw him a curveball he had no way of predicting. But just what did Laura have up her sleeve?
The Heartbreaking Letter
She read the letter Jack wrote for her. As you can imagine, it was hard to control her emotions. She thought, ‘Well, that’s the end of a seven-year marriage’. Who would not feel that way in her shoes?
She struggled to absorb the words on the paper. On top of everything, Jack began the letter with ‘Dear wife.’ He then went on to tell her that he was going to leave her. Couldn’t he have told her so in person?
The finality of it all, as well as his bluntness, was drastic and sudden. Laura did not suspect that he felt this way at all. She then realized that they had terrible communication if she did not even see it coming.
Before she arrived home, she had been in a good mood. She had just gotten great news. Laura was thrilled and happy about what she found out. However, her temperament changed when she got home.
A Hard Confession To Hear
She could not wait to tell her husband the news. However, it was then that she found his confession in the kitchen. Of course, her mood changed drastically. Now, she was no longer thrilled to share her news.
Her Own Sister
Not only was Jack about to leave her, but he was doing so with her own sister! His letter said that he was a good man and a great husband to her during their marriage but had ‘nothing to show for it’.
The Last Straw
He also said that the past two weeks were hard for him. When Laura’s boss informed him that she just quit, it was the last straw. For Jack, enough was enough. He could no longer stand being married to her.
The Moment Has Passed
But this was not all. He had plenty of things to say and penned her a letter. He said that Laura got home and failed to notice his new haircut. On top of that, she did not even acknowledge his new silk boxers!
He said that she only ate dinner in just two minutes and retreated to the bedroom after watching soap operas. He then said that she did not tell him she loves him. For Jack, it all became too much.
Signed, Your Ex
Jack finished the letter by accusing her of cheating on him or of no longer loving him. He claimed that it did not matter since he was out. To add insult to injury, he ended the letter with, ‘your EX husband.’
Don’t Come Looking
You thought that was bad? Well, wait until you hear about this part of that letter. He wrote a postscript to tell her that he was relocating to West Virginia with her own sister! Wow, what a hurtful thing to do.
Before then, she had been enjoying a pretty great day. However, the confession of her husband completely changed things for her. Her husband of 7 years was not only leaving her but doing so for her sister!
The Perfect Time
In the end, the note from Jack happened at the best possible time. If he waited even just one day to finish the letter, Laura would not have known about his feelings and infidelity with her sister.
Lots Of Cash
We bet you are wondering what news Laura just received. Well, it was a rather extraordinary piece of news. It actually involves quite a lot of money! Can you wager a guess as to what her secret might be?
Can you believe that Laura just struck gold at the lottery? While she was hurt and upset after reading the note, she at least had something to cheer herself up with. She was now one rich woman!
Meeting In College
Jack and Laura first met when they were still in college. It was not love at first sight. While they studied at the library together, nothing initially happened. He later dropped out and worked as a bartender.
Neither Laura nor Jack had a clue that this love story of theirs would not last forever. They had come from different worlds when the two of them first met. Perhaps it led to the downfall of the marriage.
Laura was from a rich family and studied hard while in college. Meanwhile, he was a part-time bartender who did not have much ambition in him. Laura’s parents did not support their plans to marry at all.
Romeo And Juliet
From the very beginning, her parents did not approve of their relationship. They thought she could do better than him. However, they had no say in it. After all, Laura was already heads over heels in love!
A Love Story
Jack felt convinced that his love for her was enough as she was stubborn. She would not give up on him. While her parents disapproved of their relationship, they pressured her so much she only pushed back!
In the end, Laura moved in with Jack. Seven years after this, she must have regretted not listening to the piece of advice offered by her parents. If you ask us, there is no denying that parents do know best.
The Recent Grad
After leaving college, Laura moved into the one-bedroom apartment he had been living in. It looked like everything was going well for them but things later changed. It was a new world for a fresh graduate.
Full Of Hope
Jack was used to the apartment, which was dirty and small. The walls were painted with old and jaded colors. The heater was broken, and the maintenance was low. Still, Laura hoped things would get better.
She felt excited about the whole thing since she did not live with her boyfriend in the past. This world was still so new to Laura. She thought life was finally coming together now that she met her soulmate.
Laura felt like Jack could have at least spoken to her in person about how he felt. Well, it was much too late for that. She wanted to share the good news with him, but she was now distracted by his note.
She hoped that he would see that he made a big mistake. She wanted to get revenge. They struggled with money in the past. At long last, she no longer had to worry about it after winning the lottery!
The story could have gone in a totally new direction. If he stayed loyal, this would be about a couple overcoming whatever life threw at them. However, there was nothing they could do about it now.
Coming To An End
The marriage started to crumble after some time. While beautiful while it lasted, it had to come to an end. There are times when it takes nothing but the mundane aspects of a relationship to end it all.
The Life She Knew
Before reading the letter from her husband, Jack was the world to her. She only ever wanted to be with him, even though he failed to provide her with the sort of life that she wanted and was accustomed to.
It Didn’t Feel Right
Ever since they first got together, they needed to be smart and careful about money. She even helped him out by working as a waitress at a nearby restaurant. However, she got suspicious a few years later.
Laura only wanted to spend her time with him, so she often visited him at the bar that employed him. After a while, she started to notice all kinds of hints about how her husband might not be loyal to her!
People at the bar began to look at her strangely, but she ignored those thoughts. Perhaps she should have listened to her gut. She would later learn that she was actually on the right track back then!
Over the years, she continued to buy lottery tickets. Of course, she would lose most of the time. For some reason, she had a different feeling after buying this ticket. She was particularly hopeful that day.
She eventually won the lottery draw! As you can imagine, she was very shocked. Her dedication paid off at long last. Perhaps the best part here was that Jack decided to leave her before she told him about it.
After Laura won, the first thing on her list was to buy two tickets to Hawaii to celebrate the win. Her plans changed after reading his note. Obviously, she would not want to go on vacation with him now!
Not A Cent
She wanted Jack to know that he would not get even one cent of her winnings. Laura did not want him back as well. How shocked must he have been to hear the news? We bet he regretted everything he did!
The Big Win
Even though she was upset by the note, she was happy about the lottery winnings. There were many things she could do with the money. Maybe she will travel, buy a nice car or even get her own yacht!
She wanted to reply to him. She started it with these words: ‘Dear ex-husband.’ She then told him how she felt after reading his note. While they were together for a long time, he had not been a good man.
She told him that the ‘favorite meal’ he cooked for her was probably for her own sister. Laura stopped eating pork even before they even met. That was not the only thing she wanted to tell him, however.
The Real Jack
When Laura found him in new boxers and failed to acknowledge it, she said she saw that they came with a $49.99 price tag. She hoped that it was only a coincidence that her sister borrowed $50 that day!
Tried To Deny It
At any rate, Laura still loved Jack and hoped to work things out together. It looks like her suspicions about his infidelity were not unfounded. However, this did not mean that she wanted to believe them.
The Lottery Win
To clarify things, she wrote that the reason she left her job was that she just won the lottery and had $15 million to her name. She thought it was more important to spend time with him than to stay at work.
The Real Reason
Of course, it all changed after she got to read the letter. Man, if only he even asked her why she quit her job. She told Jack that things happen for a reason. Hopefully, he would get the fulfillment he craved.
As you can imagine, Laura had been struggling with feelings of betrayal and rejection. She knew that she needed to deal with these things before she went on to spend the winnings she got from the lottery.
The amount of money she had to her name was no joke at all. She had to think straight before using any of it. It was all so overwhelming, and she had a lot of things to think about.
She needed to figure out how much her husband would get, so she got in touch with a lawyer. He was called Jason Kurland and specialized in lottery winnings. Laura explained the entire story to him.
His specialty was clients who just won the lottery. However, it was the first time he had to deal with a situation like that of Laura and Jack. Apparently, you can blindside even experienced professionals!
A Deep Dark Secret
Her lawyer explained that since he wrote her the letter, he made it clear that he would not get any of her winnings. In her reply, Laura wrote something she had yet to tell Jack and anyone outside the family.
Not Always Carla
Carla, her sister, was born Carl. He eventually transitioned to become a woman. Laura said that she hoped this would not be an issue for Jack. While unverified, it is one hell of a way to end the letter.
Even though she never actually thought she would win, she was very thrilled to have won the lottery. Not once did she give up. As you can see, it had been an eventful day for Laura. What a turn of events!
Highs & Lows
She did not only win $15 million but also found out that Jack was leaving her for Carla. She must have been feeling overwhelmed. What a great high and a terrible low. She must have been so emotional!
The reaction she had to the news of her husband leaving her for her own sister was unexpected for Jack. In the end, it was the sweetest revenge for Laura. We doubt Jack expected to hear about Carla’s past.
She already got the tickets to Hawaii, so Laura had to go on that holiday anyway. Now, she could do anything she wanted as she was finally free. We bet she had a blast on her fabulous getaway. Sweet!
A Different Ending
While she already suspected that her husband was cheating on her, she did love him. This was the reason she booked them a vacation in Hawaii after finding out that she just won the lottery.
Stronger And Wiser
As you are already aware, it all worked out differently than she had in mind. We all know that life is full of twists and turns. In the end, you will only get wiser and stronger after living through them.
It was crystal clear to her that Jack was an unfaithful husband after leaving her behind. Laura knew that the best thing to do was to embrace her newfound freedom and start a new chapter in life.
A Better Life
Even though she had mixed feelings about Carla and Jack, Laura was still quite happy at the end of the day. Now that her suspicions had been verified, the only thing for her to do was to change her life.
While in the cab to the airport, Laura was happy to know that Jack got his comeuppance. Now, she had the freedom to do anything she wanted. Not to mention she was on her way to Hawaii! Good on her.
This Canadian fisherwoman, together with her boyfriend, came across something a bit more cheerful than the news that Laura got. At any rate, it was also quite a huge surprise. What could it possibly be?
Something Up Ahead
They saw a huge iceberg right in front of them. As they navigated around this huge chunk of ice, they saw something odd. They saw icebergs on the daily in that area, but something about it was different.
The sun had been very bright on that day, which made it hard for them to look at what was in front of them. Allan asked his friends to take a good look at the iceberg. However, they had no idea what it was.
The Iceberg Appears!
As they approached the iceberg, they got a better look at what it was. On top of this iceberg was a dark spot they could not make out just yet. Mallory said it was only a seal. However, this did not sound right.
Taking A Closer Look
Cliff agreed with the theory Mallory put forward. They had seen a lot of seals in that area in the past. However, Allan was not about to let it go just yet. For him, something was strange about it all.
What Could It Be?
After using his binoculars to get a better look, he told the crew that it did not seem like a seal. It looked and moved differently. The others eventually agreed with him. They decided to see what was going on.
They planned to fish for the rest of the day but decided it was important to look at this animal on the iceberg. They were all curious about what it was. However, it was getting colder and windier as well.
It was risky to go out of the usual route they took. Still, Allan convinced them to check it out. If they did not agree with him, there was no way they would have found out about this animal and its situation.
They decided to get up close and personal. While the others did not think it was all that dire, Allan was able to convince them. There was no way they would let an animal suffer out there. They moved closer.
It soon became clear that this animal on the iceberg had soaking wet fur. The wind was blowing hard, so the creature might not last that long. They had to do everything they could to help this poor animal!
It was important to move slowly across the icy waters. Their boat can suffer damage from just one piece of ice. They did not want to get stranded like the animal on the iceberg and kept an eye on the water.
To make it even harder for them, the waves begun to get higher too. The movement of the boat got more precarious, so they had to be more careful. They were curious and excited as they got closer.
Sadly, the wind began to pick up. The waves were now rocking the boat and iceberg pretty hard. While they could deal with the waves, they were worried that the animal was going to panic on the iceberg!
They felt worried about more than just the dangers of the waters. Mallory felt scared that the animal was going to jump from the top in a panic. If they could get even closer, she could draw up a plan.
Pursuing A Piece Of Ice
The wind was blowing harder and the waves got higher. The iceberg was getting farther away from them. They were all worried about the boat, their friends, and this animal. It was now pacing on top of the ice.
To remain close to the iceberg, they had to increase their boat speed. It made navigation even harder. The situation became more precarious since it was about to get dark soon! They had to go back soon.
Getting A Glimpse
When they got closer to the iceberg, they had a better look at this animal. They saw that it had four legs and looked a lot like a dog. However, they were aware that there was no way a dog could make it there.
Helpless and wet, they saw that the animal was shivering in the cold. They then went on to save this poor animal. They had to make sure that it did not freeze to death! However, things would get trickier.
As they approached, they finally managed to get a good look at this animal. It turned out to be an Arctic fox! They had no time to ask how it got up there. Terrifyingly, there were birds going in circles above it!
Not A Family Pet
Clearly, the other animals there knew that it was about to die. The crew decided to rescue it as soon as possible. They forgot about fishing in the meantime to do so. Yes, they did this even if it was dangerous.
A Bold Rescue Attempt
The fox was freezing, wet, and in danger. The team had to figure out how to help out the poor animal. However, they were also worried about one thing. Would the fox trust them enough? It was hard to tell.
They had no clue just how much contact the fox had with humans before. Wild animals had a tendency to get vicious when they think they are in danger. While they wanted to save it, the fox might hurt them.
A Wild Fox
The first thing they wanted to do was to tame it. With their hands outstretched, they came closer and talked to it quietly. They did this because this was something that would work well on a tamed creature.
However, this was a wild Arctic fox. It only moved away from the gang. There was nowhere for it to go since it was just on an iceberg. It only stared at the humans reaching out to them. They did not give up.
A Waiting Game
They failed to lure the fox in multiple times. At last, the crew came to the realization that it would not go towards them soon. They had to keep waiting and practice patience. They decided to give it some time.
They decided to take a break and keep the boat right beside the iceberg. At long last, the fox took one step towards them. Perhaps it realized that this was the only way for it to survive. Did it trust them now?
The fox went up to them slowly. It did not feel well enough to jump from the chunk of ice to the boat, however. Allan then leaned over to pick it up from the ice to bring it aboard. It was finally on the boat with them!
