Too Young

by Jennifer Hanning
Originally published by on 31/05/2014

He was gorgeous but I had to be strong. Ever since my husband died I've been so lonely and vulnerable.

"I'm sorry but you're too young for me." I didn't add that I'd like nothing more than to take him home.

I walked away but couldn't resist looking back over my shoulder. Sure enough, he was watching me and I knew he expected me to change my mind. He was right. After a quick look around at his competition, I went back.

"Come on," I said, smiling. "I really wanted a watchdog, but it has to be you, little puppy."
