“Well?” he said in anticipation.

“I’m so proud of you, honey,” he said lovingly into my hair. “So what happens next?”
“I guess we’re going out on a date. . .”
To speak this truth aloud conjured up a bit of queasiness again. I started to become doubtful.
But he calmed me down & told me everything was going to be alright. Then, he gave me dating advice.
