By Love Made Whole

Walter paced the tabletop, disbelieving he was on another blind date arranged by his mother. She’d spoken of such intangible claptrap as “souls entwined” and lonely hearts made full by something she called “great smooshes of love”. 

So, here he was with nothing more to go on than emotional tripe and a name…Charlene.

Softly, a voice cooed, “Walter? You’re Walter, yes?”

From his first gaze into the ebon beads that were her eyes he was instantly smitten, instantly hers. As warm smooshes of love suffused his parched soul, he knew, for the first time, what it was to be complete.
