Just a Casual Day

Updated on April 18, 2014

Once upon a time there was a boy

eager to learn and always with a smile

Confidence he has in his voice

Determination clothed him like his skin

Nothing seemed distracting enough to stray his ways

Until one autumn afternoon. At a coffee shop

He sat reading. He took his eyes off the page

For a few seconds when he spotted her few yards away.

Dressed in blue jeans and grey converse.

Red hair, freckled face, a scar above her right brow.

Strolling her usual route to her abode

in her worn, yet great condition, grey coat.

He couldn't help his curiosity

He placed his book face down and rose to the opportunity.

Bold move even for himself, he thought.

Slightly warm afternoon with partial clouds,

he managed to utter "hello" as his voice trembled.

She stopped and noticed his bashfulness as his eyes aimed

for the sidewalk. Little did he know she admired his courage

as she is bashful herself. A smile flashed across her face.

As he continued his staring contest with the concrete,

she stepped beside him and said, "We will meet again."

She scurried away in excitement. He smiled with hopeful heart.

Little did he know that she'd seen him before.
