A white boyfriend meets his black girlfriend’s parents for the first time. Her parents instantly know she is happy because her marbled-grey eyes sparked again. They had not seen a sparkle in her eyes like that since she had been a very young girl after she got her first puppy. The puppy had since grown into a dog and had been healthy, living well past its expected years. In great health, the dog excitedly greeted the white boy, wagging his tell and trying so hard to jump up and lick his face. The black girl’s parents clearly knew from how the dog greeted the white boy that he surely would be the husband to complete their daughter’s grey world.
