For the first time Della realized that maybe she was not invisible after all. Perhaps everyone was not Bunny's to claim. She made a mental note to start wearing makeup and spend more time on her hair.
It wasn't two minutes later before Sam stuck his head in the door. "Miss Della, what is this Jaycee Auction all about?"
Della gave him a brief explanation.
He smiled. "Well I don't think I want to go to something like that alone seeing as I'm new in town. Do you have plans Saturday evening?"
Della hesitated, not believing what he may be asking. After all he could need a dog sitter or was just curious. "No, I don't have any plans."
"Good, cause you do now. I'll pick you up at 7:00." He smiled and winked one more time and closed the door.
Della was speechless. Bunny always had a date for a big occasion while Della rarely did, Now when she gave Della that,"Poor Della, not going to the auction Saturday, but you wouldn't know what to do if you did go anyway," - look that she was so want to do, Della would just mention that Sam had happened to ask her. That brought a smile her face. Della was going with the Marlboro Man.
