    Thirty-nine years ago I met Darian while attending college with his fiancé. They were childhood sweethearts and had become engaged prior to her first year of college. They decided to delay their marriage until she had finished her college degree. Taryn, Darian’s fiancé, and I hit it off at college from day one. Essentially, we had the same sense of humour and got on famously. It was, however, clear that she was totally in love with Darian and that our friendship was purely platonic. Later that year I finally met Darian. Darian was awaiting Taryn and me at the top of the stairs of the Main Building of our college. He was slim, six feet tall, and totally stunning. He had a dark complexion, expressive light brown eyes, and the most intoxicating smile I had ever seen. His black hair was very short because he was doing national service at the time. Our interaction was very brief, before the two of them wandered off. I did not see Darian again for several months. Upon finishing his national service at the end of that year, Darian and Taryn spent six weeks of their summer vacation with her dad’s family in Italy. I did not return to college, and I started a job in early January. Taryn and I kept in touch, and in March she invited me to her parent’s home for dinner one Saturday evening. After I rang her doorbell, a hefty attractive man opened the front door. When he saw the perplexed look on my face he laughed, he invited me in, reintroducing himself as Darian.

Apparently, the plentiful Italian cuisine had met with his approval. Darian’s new bulkiness did not detract from his good looks, and was still unbelievably sexy. I also met Taryn’s mom and dad for the first time that evening, and they were charming. From our general conversation, I also discovered that Darian had started working in his dad’s business. The three of us saw each other fairly frequently over the following two years, and after Taryn graduated from college, her father bought her an apartment after she commenced working for her dad in his furniture business. Taryn and Darian again decided to postpone their marriage by another year or two at this time. Every six weeks we would have dinner together at her home, and I have to admit that she was not a very good cook. Enjoying their company, however, compensated for her culinary misdemeanours. Taryn was rather demanding, and Darian was a laidback kind of guy. It always amazed me how these two opposites had found one another. She was into the arts and he was into all kinds of sports. I always accompanied Taryn to all the theatrical shows she wanted to attend, and Darian seemed very comfortable with the arrangement. I believed that he instinctively knew that I wasn’t a threat to him. It was, therefore, no surprise to me when she invited ...
