What made them friends, Stacey didn’t know. They were more opposite than night and day. But there was absolutely nothing Stacey wouldn’t do for Nick. She watched him now, struck by how handsome he was. No wonder he never had to work for female companionship. He turned, saw Stacey coming towards him and smiled. “Hey Stacey May.” It was his affectionate nickname for her that no one else would dare use. Especially considering that her middle name was really Elizabeth. But, just as much as she would do anything for him the feeling was mutual for his part as well.
They were meeting to have their usual Friday night dinner. But there was someone else at the table. The question of who the striking stranger could be furrowed Stacey’s brow as both men rose from their chairs. “Stacey, I would like you to meet Stefan Spencer,” said Nick as he pulled the chair out for her to sit. Stefan held his hand out and she grasped it to find a warm, firm shake. Sign of a strong man her uncle would say. He looked her straight in the eye and held her hand just a moment longer than was necessary and smiled a dazzling smile at her. Stacey’s heart skipped a beat. She had no words, which was a rarity for her. Nick noticed and cleared his throat. “You’ve heard me speak about Stefan we went to high school together.” Stacey did remember the stories and felt a small stab of jealousy. She always felt amazed about the bond that had formed between her and Nick; and now worried that with a male counterpart on the scene, her role would be usurped. “Stefan is relocating to the D.C. area,” Nick was explaining.
