Our Fairytale Story | How I met Madison

Updated: Feb 26

I had just arrived to my hotel in Clarksville, Arkansas with my business partner Tamara. We walked into the lobby so we could check in and I went to the restroom. On my way back up front, I saw a car parked out front with a beautiful redheaded girl in the passenger seat. A man was now in the lobby as well. A man I would soon be friends with. His name is Ricky. He and Tamara had been friends for a while and recognized one another. They quickly began catching up as I found a place to sit. Shortly after I sat, Tamara introduced me to Ricky. He is an amazing man who looks like a skinnier version of Mr. Miyagi. We are all in town for the same event. When we go to our cars to drive to our rooms, I realized the beautiful redheaded girl is with Ricky, and our hotel rooms end up being just two doors apart. I unloaded Tamara's car which is the same car as Ricky's. Both of them drive a Subaru Forester, at least at the time we met. We made a few jokes as we were unloading, but I kept to myself for the most part. Not speaking to Madison just yet. We got settled into the room and headed over to our event.

When we arrived at the event, we found our space and began setting up. Funny enough, Ricky and Madison have a booth right next to ours! Now I get to stare at this beautiful redheaded girl all weekend. Ricky was doing sound healing with a didgeridoo and flute while having people sit in copper pyramids that he made. Madison was helping him out and had a booth beside him doing readings for people. Our booth had crystals and jewelry galore. During setup we would be going back and forth constantly and every once in while I would look up to see Madison. Once we finished setup we headed back to the hotel. Tamara and I stayed in for the night.

The next day was when the event was going. People began coming in, but it was somewhat slow. This gave us time to walk around and chat with other vendors. I walked around and talked with a few people. One of which took a mediumship class with me in Oklahoma! She told me of how spot on my message was for her in the class! Made me feel really good to hear that. I continued walking around for a while and came back to our booth. I stayed here as Tamara went around doing as I had just done. At this point Madison and I were both in our booths. I waved to her and she came over. I showed her this giant crystal called "green phantom quartz," the biggest one we had on the table. I told her to hold it. She held the stone and immediately began to meditate. I knew I found a good friend. I told her she should go sit in the copper pyramid with the stone. She sat there for a while meditating with the stone. About 10 minutes later she came back and told me about how amazing the meditation was. How the crystal in combination with the pyramid was amazing! The rest of the day we stayed in our own spaces for the most part exchanging glances every now and again. Ricky came over to our booth at the end of the day and invited us to dinner.

We left the event and met back at the hotel to take care of a few things, then Ricky and Madison followed us to a Mexican restaurant. At the restaurant Tamara and Ricky did most of the talking. I sat quietly and chimed in here and there, as did Madison. Towards the end of the meal, Ricky said Madison and I should go out tonight. We both laughed and said "maybe" with a slight blush. We left the restaurant and headed back to the hotel. When I got into the room, God told me to go outside and talk to Madison. When I walked outside, Madison was not there. So, I asked God what to do. He said "walk around." I began walking around the hotel and when I had done a full lap, I saw Madison on the other end of the parking lot. I began walking to her until I heard God say "turn around and walk the other way." I listened and began walking into a field behind the hotel. Madison came running after me and yelled for me. She asked me to go on a walk to the nature trail she found the night before.

We began walking towards the end of the parking lot where I had seen her first. There was a cat hanging out over there so we decided to sit on the wall and talk seeing if we could get the cat to come to us. The cat never came, and we talked for about 20 minutes sharing some of our past with one another. Then, we began walking to the nature trail. The trail was next to a McDonald's is all Madison remembered aside from the direction she went last night. I trusted her and knew we would end up where we were meant to be. We ended up passing the McDonald's because we were enthralled in a great conversation in which I do not remember the words. Just her amazing presence. We turned around and headed to the trail. As we began down this trail, we started seeing fireflies everywhere. We were surrounded by the beautiful glowing lights. This was fascinating for both of us and we stayed here with the fireflies for about 5 minutes before continuing down the trail.

The trail we were walking was quite beautiful and the whole time I wanted to hold her hand or hug her, or kiss her, something! But, I decided to keep my hands to myself. We explored the trails for a few hours talking and running into animals. One of which was two opossums that scared Madison onto a rock. Which of course made me laugh. Opossums can climb, the rock is not going to stop them. However, it made her feel better. I walked towards the opossums and they veered off the path. Later on down the trail, we were surrounded by fireflies again. This time we stayed with them for nearly 10 minutes. We continued along the trail and found a hilarious sign.

After seeing this sign we found a paved path and Madison began spinning and being absolutely adorable.
