“Isn’t this cozy?”

“Isn’t this cozy?” Grant said as we sat on his couch, sipping white wine and watching the fireplace.

Here I was, after months of emails (our love letters he called them), chats, texting, Skype, café meetings, finally alone with Mr. Perfect; Mr. Steamy; Mr. [just] Right [for me].

I hadn’t set out to find a lover/partner. I commented on a piece he wrote. He commented back. Much faster than in the real world, we developed a relationship. A virtual relationship.

When we Skyped, he was everything he said he was. I remained cautious – lots more virtual communication before I agreed to have coffee.

Coffee was perfect, too. He was just the right amount of shy and forward; funny and warm; understanding and patient. Still . . . .

Tonight was perfect too. Our first “date” outside the café. Our first time alone. Yet . . .

“Isn’t this cozy?” Grant said again.

I thought, “No, it isn’t . . .”

    I didn’t expect that…but feel I should have.

      Partly the task was to begin and end with a contraction, and I guess she just isn’t comfortable alone with him yet.
      Are her spider senses telling her something, or is she afraid from past experiences, (or shy due to lack of them). Too much for such a short story I know.

    That’s an interesting twist. Thought provoking :-)

      As the phrase “Isn’t this cozy” came to mind, ending with “it isn’t” seemed like a nice bookends.
      Thanks for reading.

    Its that word ‘cosy’ isn’t it, how can you feel safe in a cozy place, the word suggests so much uncoziness…..

      Mr. Right could be saying it with a hint of malice in his tone. And cozy implies a closeness not yet won . . .
