The New M.E. Generation

Dina and Madelyn give me a look of ‘say something!!’

“Hi, nice to meet you. I’m Ricky, what’s your name?” asked he.

“I’m Emma, and these are Dina and Madeline,” said I while introducing them to him. “Pleasure to meet you as well.”

I don’t remember what was said beyond the usual small talk when meeting someone new, but I did make the effort of including my girlfriends in the conversation.

Ricky was very nice and polite, but I felt totally awkward. This whole dating game was all new to me, and had no idea how to behave.

I had dated and married in my homeland, which was an entirely different country and culture. And now all I could do was look around and feel totally inadequate of how to even hold up a conversation with any guy.

Looking back I thought my life would go on a stable flow, with no complications and not that many changes. I knew it was not going to be easy. But I never thought, not even in my wildest dreams, that I would end up where I was right then: alone, scared, facing the world on my own, without someone next to me holding my hand while leading the way.

Yep, right now it’s me against the world, including this guy sitting next to me.

So, what do I do now?

Some divine intervention please…
