Boaz had never been a man who paid much attention to what was going on just beyond his realm of interest and currently that realm was baseball. It had been something he had played, and loved from the time he could actually remember much of anything. He had gone to America once as a boy and he fell for the Yankees, something about how smart they look in the pinstripes. He was currently catching up with some of the games he had missed, well the highlights anyway. he smiled as she watched a rather amazing pitch. He had been a pitcher when he played. He was nothing like the Cuban Missle, Aroldis Chapman… that man… Well- For Boaz it was better than Magic to watch someone throw a 107 mph fastball.
”Did you see that Cheeto?” He asked the rather bored looking cat sitting on his bed. His pearl had turned out to be a male kitten, not that he minded the change, Cheeto also happened to be fond of the crunchy snack, much like Boaz had been. Cheeto looked up and mewed at him before turning his attention to the bird on the windowsill. Which was funny honestly… Cheeto had no interest in chasing the bird, they were friends. It was funny to watch them together. He looked at the small cat and then looked up when there was a knock at his door.
Which was strange, he didn’t usually have visitors- and most of the other teachers and he liked their time away from everyone. He stood up and was honestly very surprised. The me in question was one Katherine Belmont. He smiled. ”Oh, don’t worry about it. I think it embarrassed my sister, she’s been trying to set me up for years with no luck, and she has never been so bold as to try that tactic.” he said with a laugh. He thought it had been funny but he figured that Kate was mortified. ”Really it’s not a big deal. It was a first for me however.” He stepped aside to invite her into the tidare yoy room offering her a chair. Cheeto looked up, unimpressed with the company he laid his head back down. ”I do like wine.”
He took the bottle and smiled. ”Thank you but you didn’t need to do that.” It was just a simple, harmless letter. At least Boaz had seen it that way. ”However I think to be safe, your daughter and my sister should never meet… “ he said as he paused the TV. ”How are you? Keeping those young ladies at Penrose in line?” he said with a smile.
