Never Say Perfect is participating once more in Boomer Lit Friday! If you have been following the excerpts, Laina is realizing that Dan has slipped away to use the restroom just before their imminent boarding time in the airport and has yet to return to the waiting area. They have just spent a fabulous two weeks in a beach house in Pawleys Island in celebration of a second honeymoon that he had solely planned for her. The story picks up below...
Continuation of Chapter 1, Never Say Perfect:
Lost in the world of suspense-filled fiction, Laina was suddenly startled by the announcement that their flight was boarding. She carefully removed her reading glasses, placed them in their pink case and slid the novel and glasses into her large, fabric carry-on tote bag. Scanning the crowded sea of passengers for a glimpse of Dan, who hadn’t returned from the men’s room, she stood up to hopefully gain a better vantage point. Her emotions ranged from nervousness to annoyance as she stretched up on her toes and strained in an attempt to locate him. What could he possibly be doing that would take this long? Had he already boarded the flight? That thought was immediately dismissed, because Dan would never just leave her sitting there reading while he marched alone down the jetway.
The waiting area near their gate was rapidly emptying as the call for the last boarding zone was announced. Still there was no sign of Dan. Dear God, she thought, Where IS he? Tardiness was completely unacceptable to Dan. In fact, he trended toward being hyper-punctual. Often, when they were getting ready to go out to any function or to meet friends, he would pace back and forth, tapping his toe, waiting for her even when she wasn’t running late.
She wondered if she should go ahead and board. Remembering that Dan had protectively tucked both of their boarding passes into the pocket of his khaki shorts when they completed the security process, she suddenly felt helpless. Quickly dialing his cell phone number, she was disappointed when it immediately directed her into his voice mail, as though his phone had already been turned off.
