In this 20 century, every country deserve to get their peace. I believe that, and that was my job as the Diplomat.

 In 12th March 2011, I was the diplomat from my country German for the Turkey. But, this morning I got the call from prime minister to go to the country in South East Asia, Dompe Country. The Prime Minister want me be a witness for the treaty of contract by both of the country. the country that I will go has an issue of race discriminaton, so to protect that minority that being violent by majority, my country make an treaty of contract.

After 14 hours tiring flight. I got there, just like what I expected, so HOT it’s just like a summer, but its have higher temperature. After my departure with my bodyguards, our arrival has been waited by the police local. But immediately I’m being stunned in exit arrival door. Not because the police local, but there is a woman that wear a black suite, long black skirt and wear a hijab. Gergeous, that word even not close to express her face. But after the bodyguard ask me what happen with pale face, I back to reality and get in the car.

Tomorrow morning, I walking with hijab women to introduce me the place I will work. But, in need to be honest. I can’t concentrate what she saying. When he introduce some room for me, I just look her face, but when her looked it me back. I spontaneous look the room that she introduce. After 30 minutes, I’m in my room alone and some paper infront me. “I need to know her name, but how?” i know it looks weird for me the diplomat act like  a child. But, this person who know as the diplomat never has girlfriend, and that because I’m just too busy for study and duty. And in my 27 ages right now, and my dream has been fulfilled, I’m hungry for love, but I’m not find the one that good for me.
After thinking and thinking, I’m became thirsty, so I want go the kitchen. But thanks for me that not concentrate at all, I don’t remember where he kitchen is, after walk around for a minutes, I found a room looks like a kitchen I opened it. Unfortunetly, the lucky god not in my side, it was the hijab woman. Because I get cocky, I’m trying to go from there immediately, but that woman come to me ask what I want. “Oh Crap, what I need to say” after I think so hard. I unconsciously said “I just want to know your name mam”. 
“what the hell I am saying!!!??” im dumbfounded and silently waiting for her answer. But unexpectedly she said “hahaha you just need to call me sir from the phone, and my mistake i’m not yet introduce my self, my name is Dewi Sukma, you call me Dewi. And one more thing sir, please don’t call me mam, im not married yet” Dewi said it with chickles. I’m so relieved that she not get angry. “okay Dewi, but one more thing, pleace call me Joseph not sir, I’m still young and not married though” after that, me and Dewi getting closer.

After several months, no. after 1 years.  I can get the agreement with Germany prime minister and United Nation to clear the discrimination issue in Dewi Country. I back to that country immediately. “Dewi, please wait for me”. After I back there, I search for Dewi in the embassy place. I cannot find her. After asking some employer, one man knows her and tell me everything. Dewi is count as minority and need to save her parents from the chaos, its because their parents house in red zone. So, since 6 months ago they cannot contact her. I go to that red zone even my bodyguard don’t allow me, so I bring the local police along. This maybe risk for my life, but for save Dewi, its beyond than that circumstances. 1 days. even 1 weeks has passed and I didn’t find her. But, I get the information that the name of Dewi has been killed and her grave near from here. I immediately go to that cemetary and found the tombstone with name Dewi Sukma. I can’t believe In my eyes this actually happens. I’m started to crying and hug the gravestone. My bodyguard just watching it from afar with sad face. “I have back Dewi… so please…. Back to me again…. I want to see you again… your smile that make me feel warm and your voice that always make comfortable. Everything in you make me more alive. Please, I will accept anything, but please alive with me right now!...” I still hug the gravestone while said that words. Suddenly, someone hug me from behind, hug me so tightly, it’s so warm and comfortable. I heard woman crying voice who hug me from behind. without doubt, even I’m not look behind. I know she was Dewi. “But, still If this was dream, please keep me alive in this dream.” When I thought like that, Dewi hold my face and now I see her face clearly. With face that always astonish me. “I’m here and I’m alive. That was my mother gravestone, its not rarely happen the daughter have the same name so you don’t ne-!” before Dewi finish her statement, I hug her tightly and said “Please become my wife and live happily together”. Dewi replied with warm smile and said “yes I want life happily with you together”. I kiss her both hand and we make a big hug one more time.

River - I really like the story. Great job! 
I had say you just needed to edit, as I felt a few lines were confusing and be careful while going between the past and present tense. 
Other than that, it's an amazing story!
