For a while now, I had been seeing this guy, but still doubted whether our relationship was going anywhere. He is actually handsome but that was hardly enough. His good looks was a plus even but I also wanted a guy who would be there for me, someone I could lean on when things got tough. Then the evening came when I made him dinner.
It started off great, with him complimenting me on the meal as well as on how nice I looked! An earlier glitch in the HVAC performance seemed to have been temporary, so we were blissfully enjoying our meal in air conditioned comfort…We were in the middle of the main course when the room began to get warm and I noticed tiny beads of sweat on my guy’s forehead. The HVAC! Despite the AC tech’s recent tune up, the device was clearly malfunctioning. In a panic, I excused myself and rushed to check the thermostat. The setting was still on low but the air was getting stufier by the minute.
I hadn’t even noticed my date beside me till he quieting confirmed that my HVAC device was obviously broken. Then he smiled, held my hand and told me not to worry; that everything would fine. Quickly, he opened up the windows and asked if I happened to have a fan stashed away. I was heading towards the closet but he firsted me, found the old fan, dusted it off and set it up beside our table. I was amazed as well as truly impressed. Both of us finished our dinner, joking and giggling as if nothing had happened.
I’d found my love.
