A 70 year old lady has a chance

Jessie was in her twilight years, as she referred to her
age, she had turned 70 and was alone. Her husband had
died 20 years ago and her children were living overseas.
She was thrilled that her two sons had done well in
their chosen professions but missed the company provided
by their families. Her days were spent pottering about
her garden and the occasional visit to friends from long
ago. It was on one such visit that a sparkle of her
youth returned.

Tim and Vera were her friends almost from childhood and
she looked forward to their irregular meetings. The main
problem was the distance she had to travel by public
transport to their home. It was on a cold Sunday that
Jessie set off to have dinner with them.

It had been nearly two tears since she last made the
journey and on the final leg she realized that she had
come too far. She made her way to a gas station to seek
directions and a helpful young guy behind the counter
assisted her. She had come about two miles too far and
was faced with a long wait to get back to her
destination. A gentleman in his forties was queued up
waiting to pay for his fuel and overheard the
predicament. He took an instant liking to this slim grey
haired lady and offered to drive her. Jessie looked
outside at the wind and rain and happily accepted his

He introduced himself to Jessie as Charles and assisted
her into his vehicle. Jessie chuckled to him as they
drove. “I can hardly remember the last time that a young
man drove me home, back when I was a teen I suppose.”

She stopped as if reflecting on her younger days, then
said without much thought. “I wonder how I can repay you
for your generosity?” Charles seemed almost offended at
the suggestion and insisted that what he was doing was
an act of kindness and “Your pretty smile is it’s own
reward.” Jessie blushed then said “Regardless, I will
think of something.” Charles then inquired as to how
she would get home that night and on hearing that she
would rely on public transport was horrified. “Jessie,
here is my business card. You will give me a phone call
from your friend’s place when you are ready to depart
and I insist that you be driven home.” Despite her
protestations she agreed. Secretly she was delighted
with the care and attention from such a nice young man.

Jessie tingled with expectation throughout the visit and
kept her new gentleman a secret, telling them only that
a friend had arranged for her to be taken home that
night. At around nine that night she rang Charles who
informed her that he would be there in ten minutes. On
the way across town she learned that Charles was now
single, having been divorced some 10 years ago and lived
by himself. He devoted his time to building up a small
importing business. “Don’t you miss female company
Charles.” Jessie inquired, wondering if he was gay. “Oh
at my age I have given up hope of finding a life
partner, although as you say, there are certainly times
that I really miss the company of a lady.”

“Now Charles.” Jessie said as they pulled up in front
of her apartment, “I insist that you come inside for a
cup of coffee and I have a little gift for you.”
Charles was now intrigued and followed the dainty little
granny inside and watched as she prepared some coffee
and cake. Soon they were sitting together on the couch
chatting and enjoying each other’s company. Charles
could not help thinking what a pretty girl Jessie would
have been long ago. Jessie then shocked him by
announcing. “Charles, I promised you a gift for the kind
way you treated me today and I know of only one way to
reward a man. When I was much younger, I’m not sure how
to put this but, I errr used to end up with my head in
the young mans lap. Besides it’s been so long since I
have had the company of a gentleman, there are certain
things that I miss also.”
