the boy

Magnum met him at a party.

Just a little going away thing with the guys from work.  Pretty soon, the alcohol is getting everyone opening up.  So Magnum starts talking to this guy, and next thing, they're best buds.

"He's a really nice guy", he tells me afterwards.  "Friendly, personable.  Nice looking too, I bet you'd think so!"

Then he describes his physical attributes.  Tall, athletic, young.  But I'm not quite ready to get on board.  We've had a guy join us before, and he was great.  I admit I liked that experience.  Our last one, though, was a sweet attentive girl, and I rather liked the balance of power she brought.

"Well, my friend... she says she's got someone in mind for us", I tell Magnum.  "Another very nice girl, but my friend's new boyfriend just isn't into that lifestyle."

But I had yet to meet my friend's girl.  Magnum had already started the conversation with this guy.  So I ask why he's looking for a different arrangement.

"He's getting into too many fights at his house"

Hmmm.... bad boy, eh?  With that, I agree to meet him.

So last Sunday, we met.  I admit, he is quite appealing, just oozing really.  He knew just the look to give me.  I was like putty after that.

So he's been staying with us now for nearly a week.  He was pretty quiet at first, just mostly kept to himself.  But he's been getting more and more sociable.  I think I've broken through the tough exterior, he's actually quite playful, know what I'm sayin'?  I mean... he can go for hours!

Look at this.  WHO could say "No" to all this??

Napolion.  Yeah, that's his name, no typo.  Nah-POHL-eon.  Say it.  Say it real slowly...

He doesn't look like the bad boys I know. In fact, he looks quite charming. No wonder you were so quick to invite him to live with you! I suppose Magnum's approval made it even easier.
And maybe, just maybe, his 'bad boy' reputation will lure Kat back?

Good observation. Seriously, Kat's missing out.

I understand the appeal I had one too. A girl. The arrangement worked well. I hope it does for you too.

So far, all is going lovely. We're still in the early throes.

He's a handsome little dude! I can see why you fell in love with him. Congratulations on your new arrangement!

And he blends in so nicely with the gray chair. What else is there? :)

Intriguing. Love the name, the personality, but I have to ask, what does China and the fish think?

Abby said...

I think China is a bit fearful after the initial jealousy, but they're working out the hierarchy. The fish are too busy keeping the apocalarium plague at bay to worry about a cat.
