It was the early evening when there was still some sunlight Seymour enters the boidoir. He immediately notices his wife clad in her pink wool and lace trimmed nightgown slumped over the rose pink upholstered chair. Her bedclothes falling haphazardly over her somewhat plump form. He tiptoes quietly as to not disturb her He doesn’t know his wife is upset with Walker graduating.
Seymour “What is the matter darling? Why so glum. Why such a long face. ” Lady Lynda slowly looks up taking very effort she could to lift her head. “Its Dan D. I am so full of mixed feelings for him. Not to worry dear Seymour. I don’t mean romantic ones. I’m talking about how close I was to him as a friend and now he is stepping out on his own . Yes part of me realizes its because of my mentoring. Its only myself to blame.”
think you need this: With that he warmly embraced her. “Lets get through this together. I trust we can work this out for the good of both of us” declared Seymour. His wife looked at with the slightest glint of optimism in her dusky blue eyes. She wished it was easier to feel more optimistic. Yet she was still determined to make a go of her trying situation. She gazed at the high dome ceiling as if for a sign. She pounded her chest, Wailed “I feel so guilty . I should be happy Dan D. Walker is independent but as the song says all I do is cry” Seymour warmly hugged his mate. Maybe the cool breeze will let us come with a new perspective. Every time I step outside I feel my mental clarity is much sharper. Its as if the air is giving my brain a boost. I’ll bring my laptop.. Maybe I could get inspired what to do by checking our emails” exclaimed Lady Lynda They soon check their emails. The couple instantly notices a message on both their accounts, inviting them to a romantic couples retreat in a nearby fancy suburb. /I’m not interested in a couples retreat” snapped Lady Lynda at a time like this.” Seymour exclaimed “its times like these where its the best time to join such an event. But I do respect your feelings. Yet I truly believe its best for us both.”That meant one thing. Her husband was insistant and the only thing to do was to give in to his wishes. Resistance was futile. She believed it was her wifely duty to please her husband.
The next thing they knew they were part of a casual competition at the retreat on who could remember how they first met. The other couples gleefully ran down the moments they encountered each other as best as they reccalled. Most of the times it was at a blind date or a picnic or a party or some other sundry place.
Lady Lynda started out explaining the way she and Seymour first laid eyes on each other. “It was at our high school swim class. You see our upper school was year round with three week vacations every 3 months. Please don’t feel sorry for us. In the summer besides the regular classes there was tennis and swimming. It was one time when I got out of the pool this sweet shy boy saw me in my two piece swimming suit. I wondered what he was looking at when I saw his head was down. Then he walked up to me and told me. He was enamored by my toes. I was taken aback but then he seemed so sincere, so earnest I just thought it was okay. The other couples began to chuckle. Seymour’s face turned lobster red.
“Please let me explain I mean defend myself” “Okay we’re here to hear your side ” the middle aged balding, affable host smirked. “Good idea” replied Toze. Thanks for giving me a chance to give my side of the story. I was very shy back then I was a new student. I was in a private school about 50 miles north of that high school. By the way we called it upper school but I that;s beside the point. I only know that when I finally looked up and saw Lynda’s face with her cute little upturned nose, her unmatching eyes, blue and hazel and her cupid bow lips I knew right then and there she was the woman for me. As you can see I was right. I proudly stand here as Lady Lynda’s loving husband Seymour Toze.” With that statement Lady Lynda embraced her husband and gave him a big juicy kiss on her mate’s mouth and he did likewise as the crowd cheered the loving couple. Seymour whispered to his wife “How do you feel about Dan D. now?” “I feel fine. Knowing you truly love me is good enough for me.” “Its good enough for me too” joyously responded Mr Seymour Toze.
