It’s Like the Full Moon chapter 2.6 (wip)

Rebecca leaned her body towards Mr. Thornton shaking her head as to give the affect that she was amused by his comments, but she hadn’t actually paid much attention to a single word he’d said. She had become spellbound by the almost cinematic image of Mr. Thornton’s unexpectedly young, handsome, and robust son running towards them in a frantic hurry. Rebecca quickly cleared her throat as the son began to approach the restaurant. “He looks much younger than I had expected,” she said softly.

“Ah yes,” replied Mr. Thornton waving in his son, “It’s his burned to bear, that is the misfortune of being born to an old man. I was fifty-two years old when I married his beautiful young mother.” Just then, Paul arrived to their table. He stood up tall, front and center, across from Rebecca and reached out his hand after quickly wiping his glasses and hands with a handkerchief.

“How do you, I’m Paul,” he said simply.
