Welcome to another installment of love stories for Fiction Vixen’s Month Of Lurve. Kindle Vixen is here today telling her romantic story. Funny, I never thought of lizard petting as romantic but KV makes it work. Take it away KV.
Once upon a time there was a girl named KindleVixen. All through high-school she was a good girl, getting good grades, even winning some math awards. (hey, no giggling!). She married her high school sweetheart when he joined the Air Force and they moved to California at the ripe age of 18. Unfortunately, their love story ends there, things did not work out.
With new found freedom and an apartment of her own, KindleVixen reveled in the joys of pleather (not even real leather folks!) pants and bar nights in Santa Barbara. Tongues and belly buttons were pierced. Many fashion crimes were committed. Sexy men were taken advantage of.
Along comes Prince Charming with his long blond hair and sexy vibe. He invites KindleVixen over to his apartment to see his lizard (an Iguana for those of you with your mind in the gutter!). They hang out, listen to music, laugh together. When KindleVixen complains of being cold Prince Charming does the only thing a real man would do… warms his butt on the heater and rushes over to rub it upon her. It was love at first rub.
Soon after KindleVixen finds herself facing hard times, being single appears to be far more expensive than she expected. Prince Charming offers to help and share a two bedroom apartment with her. They can be roomies for now and see where things go. The dating couple moves in together, however all plans of staying in separate bedrooms seem to have been forgotten. How can a girl say no to Prince Charming?
Prince Charming introduces her to the wonders of good music, jam bands, PHISH, and concert tours. KindleVixen tosses away the pleather pants and finds herself in patchwork skirts and headscarves. A hippie is born!
6 months or so pass (maybe? who was really keeping track of time anyway?). KindleVixen being a brave girl decides to take things into her own hands, she was going to ask Prince Charming to marry her. A gold band is picked out, a plan forms in her head. However KindleVixen has never been patient and never been good with keeping secrets. One morning as the couple are lying in bed she pulls out the ring and asks him if he would marry her. Prince Charming laughs and says yes, even admits to planning on asking her the same question on New Years Eve.
The happy couple wed on a beautiful vineyard in California and are living happily ever after. Well as happily ever after as you can be with two daughters and 1200 square feet of living space.
