Jeff and Laurie had a very emotional relationship, but while she worked hard studying art, Jeff played. The first day she met Jeff's brother, Steve, she hated him. But Steve was the executor of the family estate and delivered Jeff's monthly allowance... which he spent quickly taking Laurie to clubs and restaurants. One day, Jeff missed a date, and Laurie found him kissing another girl. Confronting him, Jeff became violent. He attacked Laurie and as he grabbed for her, he tripped, hitting his head on the floor and paralyzing him. Guiltridden, Laurie went to the family house to help Jeff recuperate, but while there she was drawn closer and closer to Steve. When Jeff discovered their romance, he flew into another angry tirade; a tirade that ultimately killed him. Six months later, Steve and Laurie had married. When they looked out their kitchen window they saw Jeff's grave and realized that through him they had found true love.

Characters:
May; Ted
Synopsis:
May was beautiful, and worried that all the men in her life loved her for that physical attribute alone. But, then she met Ted, the only man who did not spend every night extolling her beauty. Still, after months of dating, May kept Ted at arms length, and had not even let him kiss her. Regardless, Ted was in love with her and while at the beach he popped the question. Again, May cut him off and this time he stormed off of the beach. Realizing that she may have lost her true love, May invited Ted to a romantic dinner. She cooked, wore her best dress, and afterwards took him into the living room. Looking into his eyes, she kissed him and said, "Well... are you going to ask?" Ted was bewildered and wondered if she was doing that to simply get a good looking husband since she at rebuked him so often before. He then told her that he had fallen in love with her, as she was, and can't guarantee that he'd feel the same if she were anything else. With that, he stormed out of her life again. But this time, May followed him realizing that she loved him, too, and didn't care why.

Holly Talbert had kept the secret that her mother was a thief and in prison to herself for years. Then, when her mother died, she swore that she'd get a new start and left to go to nursing school. In the clinic one night, a patient came in. Tony Decker had been in an accident and when Holly nursed him back to health, Tony asked her out. The romance went well until Tony took Holly home to meet his wealthy parents. There, the mother let Holly know that she was aware of her past... and none to happy about it. In deference to his parents, Tony broke up with Holly. Heartbroken, Holly threw herself into her studies until, one night, she found Tony in her dorm room. He was bloodied and had been shot. Tony told her that his friend, Jack Duncan, and he went to "scare" a night watchman, but the prank turned deadly. As she bandaged his wounds, Holly decided she had to call the police, even though Tony begged her not to. In court, Tony received a suspended sentence, and told Holly that he now understood what she had been going through. Turning his back on his parents, Tony and Holly walked out of the courtroom arm-in-arm, together.

Pamela; Jim Franklin
Synopsis:
Pamela had hoped to go to college and escape her dreary summer job working in the office of the coal mine. But when her father fell ill and could no longer work the mine, she had to quit school to work and help the family. She felt trapped yet worked and continued to study in every attempt to get out of Coaltown. And, her refusal to date miners gave her the reputation of being a walking iceberg. One night, she read an article in a magazine and recognized the writer, Jim Franklin, as a boy in her class. On a whim, she wrote him care of the magazine, and to her surprise, he wrote back. For months, they had a romance by letter, and then she decided to spend her vacation with him in New York City. They had a wonderful time, and as the vacation came to an end she hoped that Jim would ask her to stay with him. However, he simply took her to the train. Disappointed on so many levels, Pamela returned to work, and was surprised when she was told that Jim i\was outside waiting for her. When she walked out, she saw Jim... and realized he was one of the miners... who all looked the same to her and that she swore she'd never date. Confessing to her, Jim told Pamela how much he loved her, and proposed on the spot. To everyone's amazement, she kissed him boldly in front of all the other miners and accepted.
