Reunion

short story 4.25.13

–FREDERICKSBURG-VA-

Who knows where inspiration lurks?

Having my bi-weekly therapeutic massage to keep the ‘chi’ flowing – getting ALL those toxins expelled…

Yeah and the thought hits me as Tana is jabbing her elbow between my spine and rib cage – ah brain says:

“Why don’t yo write about that psycho guy you met on E-Harmony or was it Match.com; anyway yeah the Phd?”

I say Ok. Here it is: of course modified to be most like that guy and turned into a short story.

The phone rang as I finished my last “touch” email.

“Yes,” I coyly answered, “its me, Kathleen.”

“Hi,” Phil answered, “Dr. Dombray.” He spoke firmly, and a little distant.

“I know this may sound forward,” He mused, “but would you like to go with me on a weekend trip to North Carolina to accompany me to my family reunion for our first date?”

“Sure,” I had been reading his emails for a week and was familiar with his “edited” profile. I felt confident that that I could “read” his sentiments. He was okay.

We met an exquisite Saturday morning in May ready to drive a three and a half hour romantic drive, followed up by a nice weekend. He placed my luggage, or as I normally called it my Crew Bag. What a southern gentleman.

We were off.

“So what do you do when you are not evaluating?” I started the conversation.

He interrupted, “Analyze.”

“OK, ANALYZE.” I said finitely.

He began:

Well, I analyze. He looked briefly at me and back to his driving. Children who have been flagged to be counseled. I have my Phd.

“Jamming,” I adjusted my sunglasses. I had to wear them no matter what in any sunlight. I had been diagnosed with ‘Photosensitive Eyes’ early on. Severe headaches immediately once out in the sun, Winter or Fall. I flicked them saying, “But what do you do after your workday?”

I just wanted to try to delve into his past time life. Just a little probe, I swear, just a little probe.

“Well,” he smirked, “that’s a good question.”

I smirked too, oh boy.

He continued, “I set up a cage near my office, in the supply room and put my skins in there. I bang as hard and and as loud as possible, no one hears.”

“But the janitor.” I conjectured.

“OK, the janitor, he don’t care,” Dr. Dombray said dismissively. “And, anyway, its my outlet.”

I could just picture him with an unknotted tie – beating his brains out like Buddy Rich or something.

“And then I can get out all the tension.” He postured. “Out of my system, systematically.”

“H.m.” I rubbed my chin like I thought Freud, or well maybe Miss Freud would.

He went on. “You should come over there sometime with me and bang.”

“Well,” I didn’t want to say yes or no yet, I really wanted to gain nsight.

“Look,” he pointed with his hand practically in my face, “there’s a great place I’ve always wanted to stop, ‘Ole Mill Mansion’, for lunch.”

“Go got it.” I said moving his hand back to 10 and two. “So, where was your drum set before?”

“Well,” he deftly turned the rented car towards the exit to the restaurant. I had the set at my apartment, but the neighbors complained, so my landlord said.”

I didn’t want to seem like a dating detective looking, but not really wanting to find, “Deadly Dude.” But dating online can be perilous these days.

TO BE CONT’D….
