This is a true story that sounds more like the plot of a romance novel than a real-life event. Nicholas Sparks, take note. Quora user Kevin James Walsh posted a story about how he married the girl who saved his life….who also happened to be his childhood crush. Their relationship story has left us on the edge of tears and convinced that fate is very, very real.

The Quora question asked, “What is one moment in your life you thought could only happen in a movie?”

“I can’t not answer this,” Walsh wrote. It all started when Walsh was 13 and attending summer camp. The “prettiest girl [he’d] ever seen” walked up to him and said, “black is a good color on you.” That girl was Blake Moore.

The two became friends and exchanged AIM screen names to keep in touch when camp ended, and for a while, they did.

During high school, Walsh dealt with some “dumb stuff that seemed earth-shattering at the time,” and decided to take his own life. He wrote a note and went to the location he had planned to do it.

On the phone, Moore said that she just felt the need to call him in that moment, even though they hadn’t spoken in a year. Walsh opened up and told her what he was just about to do.

And the pair did get married.

We’re literally choked up for the third time over this story. Someone call Hollywood and get this thing green lit. We need this up on the big screen, stat!

We’re so glad Walsh shared his and Moore’s story with the world, and makes us think that maybe — just maybe — fate is real and things happen for a reason.
