7. An Unknown Visitor

I had walked to the door and opened it. A young man was standing there, and I assumed he was George. He was soaking, and his blonde hair was floppy with the water. He had shiny blue-gray eyes, and he looked directly at me.

 

"I am at your service." He had said.

"My name is George." I sort of stood there for a moment, staring into his eyes, but I shook myself back to reality.

"C- Come on in!" I said, flustered, and he sort of laughed at me.

"Sorry," I said with a giggle.

"Here, you can sit by the fire- oh, it looks like it might be going out, um, I'll fix that-" I said, but George interrupted me.

"You have enough on your hands, I'll get it, trust me." He said.

"Thank you," I said, as I put Hannah back down in her crib. I rushed back to the kitchen. "Can we eat already? I am starving!" Charles said.

 

I permitted my brothers to begin to eat, and I walked back into the sitting room. As I turned around the corner, I saw George, still sitting by the fire. I told him to relax, and picked up a sleeping Hannah and sat back down in a chair. We exchanged introductions, and I could tell it was an immediate click. Now I am not one for swooney business, but from that moment I knew just three things. I knew I didn't have time for him, but he was adorable and I was helpless.
