She had never done this before. Oh, she’d thought about it, even dreamed about it, but never really expected it would happen so soon. “Mother would not approve of this,” she thought.
Of course, Mother needn't know—at least right away. That was part of the reason Carolyn had spent so much time finding an apartment close enough to her mother’s that visiting her wouldn't be a major hassle, yet far enough away that her mother wouldn't drop by unannounced.
His gorgeous brown eyes had grabbed her attention immediately when she entered the room, and immediately she knew he would be her first. She pretended not to notice him, and made a concerted effort to appear uninterested, lavishing her attention on others, yet all the while keeping him within her peripheral vision.
Finally, he’d been introduced to her as Trevor. For some reason, the name tickled her tongue. There had never been a Trevor in her life. He was so handsome, Carolyn felt a little intimidated. It was almost hard to believe this gorgeous specimen was actually unattached. His broad shoulders and strong back just seemed to be begging for her tender touch. After they had exchanged a few lingering glances, she took a seat on the worn leather sofa. Trevor followed suit, sitting as close to her as was physically possible without sitting in her lap!
She giggled at his brashness; it was as if he knew she was smitten. With an extreme display of confidence, he kissed her. Any resistance she might have had melted away with that kiss!
“Come on, Trevor, let’s get out of here,” she whispered. Mother’s approval be dammed, she knew she had to take him home with her, now!
Without any further hesitation, she opened her purse, gave the attendant her debit card, paid the shelter adoption fee, and with his leash in hand, led the beautiful Rottweiler to her car. On the drive home, Trevor happily rested his head on her lap, and Carolyn knew she had made the right choice for her first house pet!
