The restaurant was busy; the only two seats that were empty at the bar were the two seats next to me. The younger one sat down next to me. I struck up a conversation with the two women but do not remember what first words I blurted out. The woman more my age, in her fifties was the first to answer.
She asked my last name. I asked her name. Is your husband named Daniel? He was a really nice guy. I do not think you knew her. Beverly Stanton was her name. She was not from around here. We had hung out at the same places. She and I were not friends then, but I did remember seeing her around. I knew her husband better.
Daniel and I had been casual friends.
Fear Thy Neighbor
Barbara and I had a few things in common: we discovered that neither of us ever had any children and our families did not live in the state. At about that time in our conversation, when we both were talking over the girl in the middle, she received a telephone call from her boyfriend.
The young girl asked Barbara if it was okay to leave her at the bar. I will be fine here.
I was not interested in the younger woman, but I thought Barbara was quite nice-looking and very interesting. I offered to buy her another beer, and she accepted. Then my food came, but I did not want to try to eat and talk. The bartender put the platter in front of me and asked me if there was anything else I needed.
Barbara, will you share this with me? We are going to share this meal. And please bring us two more beers. It was not a problem. When the extra plate came, the bartender offered to split it for us. We both ate slowly, trying not to talk with our mouths full, so the food lasted a while. To wash down the food, we both sipped our beers. We were having a good time. I asked for two more beers, and again she did not object.
I asked if she was dating anyone at that time. She told me that for her there was no significant other in her life. There were tables set up outside on the sidewalk to take advantage of the summer night, so I suggested we go out to them after we finished our dinner. The night was perfect — not too hot and not too cool — just a beautiful late summer night. We talked and talked. We knew many of the same people, which made the conversation comfortably easy, and the time slipped by. We both had to work the next day, so I suggested that we continued the conversation later.
I asked for her telephone number.

It is really nice out, and I like to walk. I went back to my apartment feeling good about this, and it was not just the beer thinking — I really felt a connection. I waited the customary two days before I called her, practicing how I was going to ask her out. I called asking her out, she accepted, and we made a date to go out to dinner. There was an art fair going on in the middle of town, so I knew that conversation after dinner would not be a problem.
I felt it would just flow comfortably from where it left off the other night. Barbara was renting a large house for a price that was way under the market value.

She and her hus-band had lived there for many years. She had a seventy-pound dog and an eighteen-pound cat. She told me a wild story about how the dog found the cat. It was the middle of the week. We both had the day off, and the forest preserve was deserted. JJ listened to commands very well, so we let her off her leash to run for a while in a grassy area that was surrounded by trees. Daniel threw the ball so that she could run and fetch it.
Fear Thy Neighbor S1 Ep1 Lies Lawns and Murder
On the third throw of the ball, she caught the scent of something and ran into the woods, so far that we could not see her, and we ran after her. She could not hear anything; she was intoxicated by the scent. We were starting to panic at the thought of losing the dog, but we just kept calling, JJ, come! She had something in her mouth, and as she came closer, it became slightly visible. We knew it was alive.
