The flight had been extremely bumpy from Atlanta to Norwich. It was not her first time in the United Kingdom, but it was her first time to take a transcontinental flight for a first date!

Imagine at her age, flying across the ocean to meet a man she had only ever spoken to online or on the telephone. They had finally progressed to ‘face-timing’ against her protestations. She was no beauty and feared yet another rejection after being seen in person, as it were.

Yet, he had told her she was even more beautiful. No one had ever told her she was beautiful before; she was instantly enamored.

So, here she was in Great Britain about to walk into the Briton Arms Coffee House and Restaurant on 9 Elm Hill in Norwich to meet the man of her dreams. She inhaled the crisp Fall air deeply, and went inside.
