Penny now decided to marry a virtual ‘bodyguard’. A large, strong man who could defend her. A man who was obviously able to defend her. She didn’t want to be hassled at work or anywhere else.
It took her some time to actually meet Big Guys, to sort them. She didn’t want to be a punching bag, so didn’t want a violent man. As many weren’t particularly attractive, she need to find the one who was the least repulsive.
If Penny ruled her world, she would never marry, never have kids. She liked her singularity. She didn’t want children. She wanted to be a success.
But Penny didn’t rule her world, so she settled on Jake.
