The Meeting

For my 30th birthday, my family and friends told me I needed a vacation. I wasn’t a workaholic by any means, but my freelancing work week has been 60 hours a week lately. I was surprised by the gift because I felt like I had it all.

Work. Family. Friends.

My one week vacation took me to Newport Beach, California. I had a two bedroom house right off the ocean. The first few days were so peaceful and relaxing, spent walking along the beach with my journal in hand.

It was on the third day that I met him. It was by complete accident, honestly. I was walking along the beach when I got pounced on by a dog. I got all flustered and wet but I wasn’t angry. Things like these happen. As I was getting up, I felt strong hands helping to lift me. Before I knew it, I was looking into the most beautiful green eyes I have ever seen in my life. When he smiled at me, it felt real, not one of those fake smiles you get from people.

My reaction was not what you expect.

I snorted. He blushed.

We both laughed.

That was the beginning.
