But then Alex also said that a girl named Bethany who is out of his league also aks him for school dance. Then they went to the school dance with a partner who they didn’t wish actually. At this scene you can see the beginning of how their trully feeling for each other. On the night of the dance party, provoked by Alex’s enthuasiasm toward Bethany, Rosie agrred to Greg invitation to have a night together.

Then Alex come and tell his all story with Bethany. Rosie decide not to tell Alex about her pregnancy. She won’t Alex worried then won’t leave her side. Alex also accepted in Harvard as his plan.
At the departure day, Rosie sent Alex to the airport and promise that she will join him soon. Day by day, its come the time to Rosie delivered the baby. The baby was a girl, she named her Katie. Firstly, she planned to give her to the social service so she could catch up her former plan to leave her town.

Shortly, Greg and Rosie agreed to married and raise Katie together.After the wedding, Rosie’s parent go to on a trip but then she received called from her mother that her father died. On the funeral day, Alex come but the have to face Greg’s drunken attitude in front of them. Alex sent Rosie a letter tha she deserve better than Greg, and he could became that guy. But the letter never found because Greg found it and hide it.
Lives goes on for Rosie and Alex. One day, Rosie meet Bethany who rent up a room in her workplace, she told Rosie she will be in America for job.

She decide to video calling Alex but instead of Alex, Bethany received the call and tell her that thei getting married. Rosie then aware, its too late to her to reach Alex.
Later, the scene back to nowdays. When Rosie have to catch up the flight to Alex wedding. Rosie is making a speech. She tells Alex she loves him in the speech, but quickly covers it up saying that it is only as a friend or brother/sister relationship. Rosie’s daughter Katie has brought a close friend named Toby with her on the trip and the two very much resemble a young Alex and Rosie in their deep love and friendship for each other. Toby kisses Katie and she goes outside, very distressed. Rosie and Alex comfort Katie and Alex tells her that she should go talk to Toby saying that if she rejects him now he will spend the rest of his life looking for someone to live up to her, but no-one ever will, all while Alex keeps eye contact with Rosie. Alex then tells Rosie that he didn’t realise until now that she doesn’t remember the kiss they shared on her 18th birthday.
Rosie now starts up her own hotel and she is pleasantly surprised when Alex arrives at the hotel. Alex tells Rosie that he has ‘no baggage’ and that he is no longer with Bethany. He then proceeds to tell her about a dream he had (his weird dreams being shared throughout the film, such as being the tip of an arrow, which no-one understands but Rosie) which consists of them being together. The two share a kiss.
The story is simple, but kinda sweet. We never know whatever chance pop on our life.
But thats life, fulled by mistery. When you deserved it, then you’ll get it.
