Everytime he got on a plane, he had that little ounce of hope that the woman of his dreams would be the one with the seat assignment next to him. On this particular trip from Amsterdam to Rome, he was seated in his preferred window seat, gazing down the aisle, in hopes that his perfect lady would find her way to the seat next to his.
Then, like it was happening in slow motion, a beautiful brunette appeared in the line of people headed in his direction. "She's Like the Wind" started to play in his head as their eyes met and she continued toward him. In a few short seconds, their lives together flashed before his eyes. He saw a lovely house on the countryside, two kids, a boy and a girl, a dog, an office area for her to write her next novel, and an enormous kitchen for him to work his magic in. She approached his row and they exchanged smiles as she took her seat next to him and placed her purse below the seat in front of her. All he could think was how much he was looking forward to talking with this beauty for the next two hours.
The flight attendant walked over to their row, "Excuse me, ma'am. We were able to arrange for you to sit with your husband and children. Please follow me."
