The story continues.
The previous summer, I went on a double date with my eldest brother, sister-in-law, and a guy who worked with my brother named Gary. I had never met him before. The four of us went to a drive-in movie, and afterward, they dropped me at home. I assumed that would be the last time I’d hear from Gary, but I was wrong.
I would call it an understatement to say that Gary was an introvert. I was surprised when I received a few letters from him after returning to school. One evening the phone rang, and I was astonished to discover it was Gary. He asked me if I would like to go out to dinner. I asked him when he wanted to do that, and he confessed that he was calling from the lobby of my dorm. He wasn’t asking me out on a future date; he asked me to dinner that night.
My boyfriend, Brent, had just stopped by to see if I wanted to go out. I covered the phone while I explained what had just transpired. Brent probably rolled his eyes but added that he would call me the next day, which he did. So, Gary and I went out for an excellent dinner at a restaurant near my dorm. Afterward, he walked me back to my dormitory, we said goodnight, and I thanked him again for a nice dinner.
The following morning I was astonished to receive yet another call from Gary, asking if he could come and see me. I told him I didn’t know he was still in town but that I had a Criminology class in minutes. He asked if he could go with me, and then he would buy me some coffee or something and head home.
We made it to my class with very little time to spare and ended up in the back row, the only place with two available seats. After class, I introduced Gary to my teacher, who greeted him politely. Gary and I had just left the classroom when Mr. Peterson called my name and said he would like a word with me. I assured Gary I would be just a moment, and I returned to the classroom, where he spoke just one sentence. “He is not good enough for you.” I replied as I would have to my father, with the assurance there was no cause for alarm.
Stay tuned for the third part of the story.
