Jane Jago’s Daily Drabble – One Hundred and Thirty-Four

She was a big, deep-chested girl in an era when it was fashionable to be tiny and skinny and chinless.

He first saw her at Delmonico’s. Eating steak. Her naturalness made his fashionable date look stiff and pallid.

Being who he was, it took him very little time to learn all about her. He made himself known to her father, and was graciously given permission to escort her to the theatre.

Many years later he was to say that he fell in love with her that night.

But it took him a year to persuade her to marry him.
