My heart was pounding …
I tried to subdue my distorted feeling by gawking at the mirror.
“was it that long?” I told myself
“am I falling for him?”
As I saw myself quite perfect, I showed up.
It was the second time I met him, in the office.
For a while, I forgot that in previous day, I cried in pain, wishing someone whom I barely could have.
Today, I was flattered by his broadened smile. He recognized me.
I threw the smile back at him, still, no words were uttered.
I prepared to go, and he said
“Can I take you home?”
I nodded “sure”.
I was blushed.
He was quite talkative, he told me his life, a bit. I listened.
Still, I thought “am I falling in love?”
“or am I just easily flirted?”
He took me home.
then he said “let’s have dinner, shall we?”
I asked him to wait.
I got changed.
and off we went.
For a while, I forgot that I just broke up with a man, just because his mom didn’t like me. I forgot that in the past 2 years, I was waiting in vain.
His smile shifted my heart.
We were sitting, face to face.
In a black suit, he looked stunning.
“oh, I always like a man in black” , I told myself.
We spent few hours, reluctantly talking, clumsily looking at each other.
and we walked home.
He said goodbye and asked me “will we go again?”
and I closed the door and saw him leave in discreet through the blind.
I felt my heart lighter.
Because of you.
