EXCERPT:Charlie and Bethany “dish”
“Slow your roll girl! One question at a time. No, I didn’t manage to talk Evan out of joining up. But, I did get a lot of information. More than I’ve been able to process yet. The recruiter was…”
Charlie hesitated and smiled.
Bethany rolled her eyes.
“Oh, man I know that look. The recruiter was hot. Right? Oh boy. Is he single? Did sparks fly? Do you have another meeting?”
“Do you ever take a breath, girl? Yes, he was hot. Leroy Jethro Gibbs combined with a little Harrison Ford. Tall, dark, handsome…and I bet you could wash clothes on his abs, yum. He appears to be single, no ring anyway, and he asked me out. So I certainly hope he’s single.” Bethany squealed; there was no other word for that sound.
“Seriously? Did you say yes? Mrs. I haven’t been on a date since Clinton was in the White house.”
Charlie’s mouth turned down at the corners.
“You make it sound like a crime. I was happily married for thirteen years, Bethany. Phillip and I went on dates all the time.” Charlie knew she sounded defensive, but she had loved her husband. Was it so wrong that she hadn’t jumped right back into the dating world after Phillip’s death? She had thought they would be together forever. They were soul mates. It wasn’t that easy to let go. But, Phillip was gone, and she was so alone. She lay in that big bed every night, wishing there was someone to hold her, to make her feel safe, secure…loved. Tears pooled in her eyes, but she refused to let them fall. Charlie tried to smile, but knew she failed.
“I’m sorry baby. I didn’t mean to make you upset.” Bethany grabbed her hand and gave it a squeeze, “But, you know I’ve been telling you for months that you need to get out there and meet someone. You’re still young. Your life isn’t over just because Phillip is gone. He wouldn’t want you to be alone either. You know I’m right.”
“I know Bethany, I know. And believe it or not, I did say yes. But, I can’t say I’m not having second thoughts. There is definitely a physical attraction there and I haven’t felt that for anyone since Phillip…but, with this thing with Evan I’m just not sure if it’s the right time.”
