Friday Fictioneers: The First Meeting

copyright-ted-strutzHe had come on a business trip to Istanbul. He hated going on sightseeing excursions alone, but he had a whole day off and decided to take a dinner cruise.

The food was mediocre, but at least the view was breathtaking. He was admiring the Bosphorus when someone in the boat caught his eye. She was alone like him and was dressed simply with little make-up. But her smile was the most captivating he had ever seen. He never looked at the Bosphorus again that night.

They were married shortly after and lived together happily for the rest of their lives.
