I think from the moment that Jack spied Rebeca he was smitten. With Amber he was all swagger and slapstick but his behaviour around Rebeca is different. There is still a certain amount of oinking but for awhile there when Rebeca would talk to Jack or give him a kiss he would become all coy and tongue tied.
He seems to be getting over that now and was chatting away in his own special Jack manner tonight. Whatever language it is that Jack speaks we know that it is not Spanish.
Jack will spot Rebeca from a distance and his face will light up. The other day she was walking down a laneway near us and he kept on waving and watching her as she walked off and waved back at him. It was like the equivalent of two lovestruck teenagers on the phone saying you hang up...no you hang up...no you...
And today when Jack and I were on our way to meet S in the park for lunch (after another successful Big Space visit) I saw Rebeca approaching deep in conversation with another girl. When she got close she excused herself and said something like, "Excuse me I have to talk to someone important" and was rewarded with a big smile from Jack.Arek (Rebeca's partner from Poland) is Jack's love rival. Jack however tries not to let this interfere with their friendship and the first time they met they played a round of golf on the front lawn of the manor. Glad to see they can be 'men' about this.
