McMillans - Round 9
Stacey had mumbled, "Tomorrow night, baby," as she rolled over to go to sleep.
Justus sighed. He knew they were getting old when Stacey didn't have the energy to go out on the town.
"Mom," she said. "Maybe it's time for you to go out with someone else. Not really date, but maybe just go out and enjoy yourself!"
Stacey shook her head. "I want to go out, but I think I'm too old. Nobody would want to date someone like me.."
Brittany hugged her Mom. "Mom, you're beautiful, fun and vivacious! Tons of guys would love to take you out! Just think about it..." Brittany walked out to go check on the dogs.
Stacey sighed and sat on the sofa. Maybe Brittany was right. Maybe it was time to test the waters and start dating again. Not that she'd ever marry again, but she missed talking to someone and being romantic. She couldn't believe how fast Brittany was growing up!
"Vould you like to see it vone day?" he offered in that sexy foreign accent.
Stacey tapped his shoulder. "Oh quit teasing me. As though you would take me!"
The handsome man smiled and said, "Ah, but vhat if I said I vould. Vould you come vith me?"
Stacey thought about it. "It would be such an adventure! And Brittany will be going off to college soon. I just wish I didn't feel so old!"
He leaned in, his eyes flashing, "Vhat if I told you that I could make you live forever?" he asked.
Stacey leaned over and laughed as she pushed him. "Now I know you're messing with me! You're so funny! I had a lovely time tonight," she said as she leaned in to kiss his cheek. "But I think it's time for me to get to bed now. Maybe you could come over tomorrow?" she asked.
He scowled as he made a face. "No, no! I cannot. But, tomorrow evening?"
"It's a date!" Stacey grinned.
"Mom?" she asked quietly as she took a step forward. "Mom? Are you okay?"
