Eyes meet, then the rest of the world disappears. Even for that moment in time, that's all that matters.
Conversation flows like long lost friends. The chemistry is
undeniable, like reunited, long lost lovers. The excitement builds
like a teenybopper waiting to meet their favorite popstar.
All those feelings, rolled into one. Now add a shot of absinthe. They say it makes the heart grow fonder... and it did. Absinthe or no absinthe, it would've happened anyway.
Skip ahead to the next day. You wake up to the sun blazing in your eyes and only a foggy memory of the night before. One lingering feeling remains (and no, we're talking about just the hangover)... It was the best night of your life thus far.
Mind you, it ended on a good, clean (and drunken) note. Numbers were exchanged with a goodbye and an "Ill see you tomorrow", no uncertainty on whether that "tomorrow" that we planned would even take place.
In the end, it doesn't. But your hopes have not dwindled. You know, somehow, your paths will cross again. The "whens" and the "hows" are just minor details in the grander scheme of things.
Before the drinks started flowing and the night got crazy, you knew this all anyway. One glance was all it took.
That one glance, followed by that smile confirmed everything you had been thinking from the minute he walked in.
You are in awe of this man. He was your David Statue. Perfection, in every way.
As you got to know him, this initial opnion of him just grew.
Could it be?
Could... he be?
So far, all signs point to YES.
Sometimes, it's best to just stay in that moment. Life is strung
together by a series of moments. So enjoy it.
Flirt shamelessly. Laugh louder. Hold his gaze for longer than usual.
Hell, even buy the man a drink.
For me, for now, i'll take it as it comes. Sooner or later, something's gotta give. Hopefully, sooner rather than later.
And if it's love, and we decide that's it's forever, no one else could do it better.
...til next time!
