We met a couple of weeks ago. We were both at the River Market Antique Mall and I passed her idling in a booth at the top of the stair on the second floor. We said “hello,” though I was in a rush and moved on without exchanging pleasantries.
She made an impression. Well-built, stable, but a little wobbly under pressure, I thought we might have a few things in common. When I returned home from vacation I went back and asked her if she’d like to stay with us for a while. She said yes; she has an adventurous spirit. I paid her back rent, twenty-four dollars, and brought her home to meet the boys. They think she is swell.
Ready for a fresh start, wanting to put her past behind her, she’s looking for a new name. We are open to suggestions.
