Allyn was in town, just doing some shopping. She started chatting with a nice young man (not pictured) and it wasn't long before he suggested that she meet a man he knew. Seems he thought they would really get along well. Surprised, but intrigued, she agreed.
When Neil walked in, her heart skipped in her chest. (3 LB)
They talked so easily, it was as if they had known each other forever.
Someone called Joe on the phone, their voice disguised, and proceeded to tell Joe that Allyn had been seen downtown with another man. The fact that they were probably in the process of ending their relationship wasn't public knowledge yet, so whoever was calling thought they were causing problems.
Joe, while surprised that Allyn had been out with someone so soon, wasn't surprised to find that he really didn't have any negative feelings about it.
Allyn couldn't help herself. She had to see Neil again. She came home from work the afternoon after meeting him and called to invite him over. He was as anxious to see her as she was to see him, and hurried right over.
They spent the whole afternoon talking and joking and even flirting.
By the time the sun set, they were both feeling the heart flutters. (No input from me - they did this on their own.)
Joe continued his love of searching the skies, and invested one of his promotion bonuses in a nice high-powered scope that far out-performed the ones he already had.
Downtown one afternoon, Joe was chatting with some friends when he saw her.
She was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. He had to meet her. He excused himself and walked right over and introduced himself.
Samantha Taylor. Even her name was beautiful. He felt those same double-lightning bolts he had felt a few days earlier that had woken him to the thought that maybe someone else was out there. He had a feeling he had just found her. He asked her to dance, an innocent enough gesture, yet, the feel of her in his arms was pure heaven.
Samantha appeared to feel the same way.
Daring to touch her more intimately, Joe caressed her cheek and asked if she would go on a date with him, that very minute.
She agreed, and they went to a quieter location than the club they were in so they could talk more quietly. It didn't take long before they couldn't even keep their hands off each other. (All through ACR, no input from me.)
Yes, it certainly appeared that Samantha had fallen for Joe at first sight.
Joe suggested they have their pictures taken in the souvenir booth nearby, but it seemed that Samantha had other ideas for their use of that privacy curtain.
Joe was in love.
