For the first time Mary looked up to see the man, he had short dark hair and his eyes equally matched. He seemed mysterious, handsome and Mary could appreciate that. It was the first time she had looked at a man since Matthew and she enjoyed the fact he was completely different than her floppy haired husband. She wasn’t even sure why she had paid attention to this stranger to begin with but the way he helped his sister into the office touched her.
The man was at her side before she could look away again, his eyes meeting hers and then he smiled. “I must introduce myself to someone as beautiful as you. I’m Anthony Gillingham.”
