Please read “About this project and the Author” for more information on my project. Daryl describes his first date with Annie…
“I was quite flattered when only a few weeks into our morning ritual, she was the one who moved us forward and suggested we went out for coffee, as she put it “somewhere nice and at night”, instead of “at work and so early in the morning”. I was mildly hesitant and wondered, albeit only for a second or two, if it was the right thing to do given how nice she was and, well, how I was who I was. My desire for more of her overwhelmed me and we set a date for the following Saturday night.
I was at least wise enough to know that Annie wasn’t the kind of woman to go to bed with a man on the first date, so I showed up relaxed, with no agenda and thanks to that clear mindset, two things were quickly revealed that night. First, I really did like her and second, she really did like cake. I stared at her for what seemed forever and listened to every word she was skillfully able to pronounce between two bites of that giant piece of double chocolate cake she had ordered. She spoke for hours about work, family, favorite foods, movies, songs and I got most of it. I have to admit, at that moment I was more focused on the depth of her eyes and on the sweet sound of her voice.
At the beginning of that first date, I had to beat down the part of my conscience trying to rise and remind me that Annie was too special for me and by the time my lips touched her cheek when we said goodbye later that night, I had already chosen to surrender all I could to her…”
