50 years ago, Janice Rude was a sophomore at Occidental College in Los Angeles. It was here that she met freshman, Prentiss Wilson. Rude worked morning shifts at the school cafeteria, and Wilson showed up bright and early every morning to see Rude’s beautiful face and fetch some breakfast. The pair claimed that it was love at first sight.
Although Wilson made an effort to exchange these little moments with Rude, he never really believed that he had a chance with her. She was a year ahead of him in school and he truly believed her to be way out of his league.
While Wilson spent his days swooning over Rude, she just so happened to be feeling the same way. Both were very shy – so for a short period of time all they had were brief, blushing glances when they crossed paths. With time, their relationship would turn into so much more than they had expected.
