Chapter One – Julian Meets Rhonda

Julian never had much luck with love. He considered himself a hopeless romantic. He was in love with the idea of love. The very idea of doing something romantic for his girlfriend was enough to put him a great mood for the rest of the day. This usually meant he would fall for someone quickly, which ultimately created additional challenges for him.

 

While Julian was by no means a supermodel, he was a decent looking guy. He stood tall, just over six feet. With his black hair and piercing green eyes, he made up for being slightly overweight by his above average facial features. He had just recently got out of a relationship that hadn’t ended well. Despite the fact that he had not succeeded with multiple previous relationships, he was not dissuaded.

 

Julian was an actor by trade. During a rehearsal a friend suggested a blind date. Julian had never gone on a blind date before, but the idea intrigued him. He also thought this could be the perfect way to get his mind off his recent, failed, relationship.

 

It was settled. He went home in anticipation of who he would meet tonight. Would this be a waste of time, or could she be the one?

 

After getting ready, Julian headed to the nearby wine bar where he was to meet his blind date. He arrived shortly after six in the evening and did a quick look around the small wine bar. There was hardly anyone around, and he was sure none of them were who he was supposed to meet since they all seemed to be employees of the wine bar. Julian decided to order a drink and start perusing the various pieces of art displayed.

 

A short time had passed and Julian decided to find a seat at a table. He then saw a woman come in. She was tall, almost as tall as he was himself. She also had dark hair, about shoulder length. While most people may have not noticed, Julian noticed her posture was immaculate. Julian continued to watch her to see if it looked like she was looking for someone.

 

It didn’t take long for her to spot Julian and approach him. “Hello” she said. “Are you waiting for someone?” Julian replied, “Yes”. She then said “My name is Rhonda, are you Julian?” Apparently, our mutual friend had told her my name, but neglected to tell me hers. I nodded in agreement and offered for her to sit.

 

After I got her seated I offered to get her a drink. She agreed and requested I surprise her. I got her a Framboise from the bar. We sat and talked for hours. Everything was clearly going very well. By the end of our first date, she mentioned she had planned a movie night with our mutual friend already and invited me. I accepted and we parted ways for the night.

 

Chapter Two – Movie Night

Julian arrived at Rhonda’s house for movie night. He was excited for it as he was certain the first date had gone well. He was even more certain of this when Rhonda greeted him and was practically floating with happiness.

 

Their mutual friend, Shawna, was already there sitting on the couch eating popcorn. Almost immediately after Julian arrived they started the movie. The night went on rather uneventfully until the end of the movie when Shawna mentioned she had to work the following day. She then left and it was just Rhonda and Julian.

 

Rhonda explained that she was happy Shawna had finally left so they could have some time alone to talk. She expressed how much she had enjoyed both the night at the wine bar and the movie night. Julian agreed.

 

After quite some time had passed with Rhonda and Julian talking about life and more personal details about themselves, Rhonda mentioned it was getting late. Julian agreed and Rhonda walked him to the door. Right after exiting through the doorway, Julian turned toward Rhonda to say goodnight. Immediately after Julian turned around, Rhonda kissed him. It was somewhat unexpected, but certainly enjoyable and lasted for a long time.

 

Rhonda explained she wanted to kiss him and wasn’t sure if Julian would kiss her. She said she decided to just go for it and Julian responded with how happy he was she had.

 

At this point it was clear, they would be seeing each other for a while.

Chapter Three – Turn for the Worse

Julian and Rhonda had now been dating for almost a year and everything was going amazingly! They were both acting together in shows, and their careers were thriving together too. All of their friends would constantly mention how they seemed perfect for each other. They did almost everything together and almost never argued about anything. The relationship continued to go well for a few more years, then everything changed.

 

Julian wasn’t sure exactly what happened, but it became increasingly apparent that Rhonda was getting more distant. She had started coming home later and later, claiming it was due to work. They weren’t acting on the same show, which they had been doing for the past few years. They weren’t even hanging out with the same friends or doing much together outside of work.
