Weeks went by.
Cindy and John
communicated nonstop
and met regularly.

Their friendship was blossoming
into a beautiful relationship
and it was clear they were
the center of each other’s world.

One day the following event occurred…

Melanie:
Cindy,  would you like
to have drinks after work?
It’s been a while since we hung out!

Cindy:
Sorry Mel, I need to get home.
I have an appointment!
Maybe some other time?

Melanie:
Sure, no worries!
See you tomorrow…

 
2 hrs later, a text came through…
 

Karen:
Cindy, can I over for a few minutes?
I have a few designs
I’d like to show you
for my huge presentation next week.
I could really use your input
to narrow it down to my best five.

Cindy:
Gosh Karen, I’d love to help,
but can we do that tomorrow?
I’m rushing to get a few things done.
I have an appointment later.

Karen:
An appointment?
Who has an appointment at night?
What kind of appointment is that?

Cindy:
I’ll tell you all about it another time,
but right now I really have to go!

Karen:
Okay, no problem,
you’re being all mysterious,
but I DO want details. Bye…

 
30 minutes later the phone rings…

 
Cindy:
Hello mom, are you ok?

Her mom:
Yes dear, just calling to see
how you’re doing!

Cindy:
Oh thanks mom, I’m great,
but can I call you in the morning,
I need to jump in the shower.
I have to get ready.

Her mom:
Get ready for what dear?

Cindy:
I have an appointment.
I’ll tell you about it another time.

Her mom:
Okay honey, please be careful!
What kind of appointment
happens at this time of night?
Is a boy coming over?

Cindy:
Geez mom, NO!!!
A boy is NOT coming over.
I’ll fill you in another time,
but right now I REALLY have to go.

Her mom:
Okay dear.
Please remember to be respectable.
Good night!

Cindy:
Geez mom! Yes I’ll be respectable…
G’nite mom…

It’s 9:55 pm. Five more minutes.
She’s ready. She’s excited.
She can’t wait for ‘The Appointment’.
