Weekly Photo Challenge – Companionable

He still asks me why I waited for him that first date when he was twenty minutes late.  I sat in the lobby of the all-female dorm, sure he would show.  At eighteen, I’d never been stood up in my life.  Finally I saw him dash out of a new, blue VW Bug, and rush through the glass doors to greet me with profuse apologies.

Why did I wait?  Because the first time I looked into his bright blue eyes, I fell in; I knew in my bones this was real and for keeps.  Forty-six years later he is still my soulmate, my darlin‘ companion.
