[CM] November Prompt - Serendipity
Serendipity? Easy enough for me to talk about seeing as it pretty much means finding something that you like without having been looking for it. The one thing that comes to mind automatically that fits that. Meeting Rachel Berrisford and falling in love. I went in there on a simple mission to find out about Robert Berrisford and how much he knew concerning Manticore and their genetic experiments. To do so easy, play nice piano teacher with his daughter.
Then I saw Rachel that first time and right there I think was the end. We hadn't even talked but she had my attention. Maybe at first it was me being a typical guy. She was hot and female. Instincts for me and my siblings is strong. As I got to know her I could feel how I felt changing even if I didn't understand what I was feeling. We weren't engineered for that. I knew I was in love with her the moment she told me she loved me.
How things went down in the end hurt more then anything. Rushing out and being too late. Thinking Rachel was gone and being dragged away. Having them detonate the bomb instead just so it was done. Just the whole meeting Rachel, falling in love, and realizing I was more then Manticore allowed me to be, that is Serendipity right there.
