Frank Drake, mesmerized by the melodic laughter , sought the source.
Selene was circled by several young men, one being his cousin Art. She was so petite he wondered if she would even be five feet without those heels.
Art was definitely too old for her. In fact he might be himself!
As she turned towards him he realized she only had a dimple in her left cheek! Where had this beauty been all his life?
Knowing if he had seen her he surely would never been able to forget those green eyes, or mass of shiny black curls. He certainly wanted to get her away from his cousin's grasp.
Art was known for promising the moon then after bedding them a while giving them the boot.
With that sun bleached hair swept across one of his eyes that always sparkled with mischief he bragged there wasn't a woman able to resist his charm. . Even In this era of free love, he had ruined the reputation of too many debutants to name in his twenty eight years.
Frank in his Marine Dress suit was rather handsome himself, but he hadn't the confidence or experience with the fairer sex. After boldly edging his way into the circle he asked if she had a spot free on her dance card.
With the one dimple it looked like her cheek winked at him as she held out her delicate hand sweetly saying" I believe it is free for the rest of the night."
Art was dumb struck as his cousin's bold action, he had never seen him do anything but stammer with a pretty girl about.
She glided around the floor with finishing school perfection,
Smiling at the knowledge this the was marine Mama had said was to soon be her husband
Frank was seen with Selene on his arm any time either of them were seen during the next month. She found she actually enjoyed his company, and of course the perks that came along with his prestige in the Parish.
She had carefully waited until the time was right, she felt it should be longer . Mama reminded her there was only a little over a month before he had to leave for Hawaii, then on to Vietnam.
Selene right on cue took the passionate teasing to new heights. The carefully orchestrated "No's ",and "We cant's", were tonight replaced with soft moans and murmurs, of ecstasy.
It was a carefully laid out plan that she and mama anticipated would lead to the fulfillment of her goal, a Wedding before he left.
Selene, baby why are you crying, did I hurt you? Oh my God this was your first time too?I shouldn't have let us get out of control . This should have been in a honeymoon suite not a blanket in the park. You do know how much I adore you sesee ?
"Momma will just kill me if she finds out that I didn't wait! Frank, I promised I wouldn't do that, not till after I wear that white gown she designed! She said I would have to get married in red !I!. . . I?
I swear Frankie I'm not a slut! I just love you so and you made me feel different than I ever have before. Honestly I don't think I wanted you to stop!"
Hush shhh my Sesee, don't cry Leave it all to me I will make this right, I promise I will.Franks protective attitude along with the fact she was also his first lover calmed her nerves, as it melted some of the ice that resided in her heart.
Picking her up tenderly he carried her back to the Alpha Romero, and all he could think of was how lucky he was to have the love of this perfect woman.
One way or another he knew she would be his wife before he went to Nam.
"Looking at the phone won't make it ring Selene, I hope our little plot hasn't scared him off. He has a bit of thinking to do,
but from what you have said he's caught hook line and sinker!
Now his cousin is another story Oh the tales I have been told about that one! He would of stole the bait and swim off with a smile and and a satisfied swagger in his gait.
It wasn't as horrid as you thought, seems you had a bit of a glow when you finally got home .
" Mama I don't want to talk about it, not now not ever! I did what you wanted isn't that enough?
