As she sat in the car outside of the Prairie View golf course in Topeka, Kansas, she noticed how beautiful of an afternoon it was. It was the first Saturday she had off of work in a long time, and the weather was perfect. It was sunny, but it was wasn't too hot or too cold. As she waited patiently, she found that she was nervous to be going golfing with this new man in her life. She hadn't been golfing in a long time, and she was afraid of embarrassing herself in front of him.
When he returned from renting the golf cart and paying the green fees, they headed to the first hole. After stretching and applying sunscreen, she walked up to the tee box, placed the ball on the tee and got in position. She swung the golf club for the first time in years. When the club came back down, she realized, to her dismay, that she had missed the ball. She looked over timidly at Justin and they both burst out laughing. She accepted his offer for a few tips on how to improve her swing. On her second try, she hit the ball and it landed in the green.
They both showed improvement as they continued to golf through the next eight holes. When they reached the final hole, they were laughing, joking and giving each other a hard time. They had decided not to keep an official score before starting, so they called it a tie even though she knew she had won. As they drove the golf cart back to the club house, she felt like their second date had been a success and began to wonder what the third one might bring.
