It was just my normal walk home from my job down the street, and I wasn’t expecting anything overly exciting to happen. It was a normal Saturday afternoon, and I was just making my way back to my house after working at my job at a coffee shop, (another cliche, I know), which seemed excruciatingly long today especially. I was just ready to collapse alongside my satin sheets. I didn’t want to be wearing my too-tight tennis shoes or the annoyingly bright and required work t-shirt that read “Fluffy Beans” in tacky font for one moment longer. Bottom line, I definitely wasn’t in the best mood of my seventeen years, but I still walked in silence and tried to call my brain down. My earbuds were both in and my phone was playing a song I couldn’t quite recognize but had a fast pulse which my own heart started to mimic.
“Ahhh, sorry!” I heard a sultry voice whisper-cry at the same time I felt my bag fall off my shoulder and onto the pavement. My shoulder went back sharply with the impact and I heard myself wince softly more from the surprise than any pain. I brushed my bangs out of my eyes as I looked up to see who had bumped into me. My mind was still racing from the fast beat of the music, and I was quite annoyed that this girl couldn’t even watch where she was going. The sidewalk was plenty big for both of us, and yet she still wandered into my personal space and made me lose my footing for a moment.
“No worries, it’s alright!” I forced myself to throw on a smile as I hiked my bag up higher onto my shoulder. Even if I was a bit, (quite), annoyed, I was going to be pretend happy to this girl super quick, then go home and take my nap....... That was before we made eye contact.
That was before I made eye contact with the most beautiful and angelic pair of eyes it appeared the world had to offer. I felt my breath hitch as we exchanged a gaze for a few moments longer than was necessary and I was sure that my cheeks were starting to burn a rosy shade aplenty.
