Work in progress-Retired elderly women helps give a dying man the last thrill of his life.
|The cherry blossom perfume drifted sleepily in the warm evening air mixing with the scent of fresh cut grass and gasoline as Dorris sat waiting patiently on the cool cement bench. She adjusted her felt hat squarely, clutched her suitcase with both hands and took a deep breath. Waves of excitement, held tightly under her brim, could almost be heard lapping at her heels. It made her toes wiggle ever so slightly inside her shoes.
Deep within her pocket was a newspaper clipping from the Chicago Tribune:
Retired ailing gentleman seeking mature, well educated women solely for companionship. Must be willing to relocate. Room and board provided, along with a $50 per week allowance. (***Insert quirky attention grabbing phrase***) Please send correspondence to PO Box 18 Nacogdoches, Texas 75961. Interviews will be held in Chicago.
