Unexpected Love

When I was in college about four years ago, I did some volunteer work at a hospital for extra credit. I met this very great looking doctor who was about ten years older than me. He was married with children and had been for about fifteen years. One night, I was driving home from the hospital when my car broke down. I called on my cell for assistance. Then, to my surprise, this car pulled up. It was the great looking Dr. James. He was on his way home. He tried to get my car started, but it would not start. So, he offered to drive me home. I agreed. On the drive home, we started to talk about work, his kids, his marriage, etc. He asked me if I was hungry. I told him I was, and then I offered to cook for him when we arrived at my house. He had told me that his wife and children were out of town visiting her family back east. So, he came in and I started to cook. After we ate, we sat and talked some more in the living room. I put some music on and, before I knew it, it was almost midnight. I told him that if he wanted to he could spend the night since he lived almost an hour away. I told him he could sleep in the other room, and he agreed. He took a shower, I gave him some sweats to wear that my brother had left at my house, and then I took a shower. I sat on my bed wishing that he would knock on my door and kiss me. But, I thought no, he is married. I better just leave it alone. I had on a big t-shirt. I had just turned off my light when he knocked on my door. I turned my light back on and told him to come in. He sat on my bed and apologized for waking me. While sitting next to me, he touched my face with his hand and pulled me close to him. We started to kiss really passionately, and then we had amazing sex. We both fell asleep on my bed. The next morning, I woke up and we had sex again. He told me afterwards that he had wanted me for a while. He said he never had the nerve to ask me out since he was married. He explained that he had been separated from his wife for about eight months. I told him that he should have told me sooner. After that we made love all day long. We only got up to shower together and to eat. He is divorced now, and we have been married for almost two years. When I think back, I am so happy my car broke down that day. We are expecting twins later this year. Love is really unexpected when you think about it.
