Day 1: Parking Lot
Him: I thought I’d come by and give you this carnation. Do you like carnations?
Me: Well, I… Thanks… but…erm..
Him: It’s a flower, not a ring. Relax and take it will you?
Me: Oh…I know… just…thanks.
Him: How come you never take compliments well?
Him: Like if I said that when you smile, it’s like you walk into a dark room and turn on the light…
Me: weird sound, impossible to be captured by alphabets
Him: See? (all intense) I don’t get you Joy…Help me out here.Tell me…
Me: Don’t call me Joy…
Him: Man, you drive me nuts…
Me: Thanks for the flower
(I drive away feeling like a jerk.)
Day 1: Grocery Store
He: hey hey! Archana!
He: You look beautiful
Me: Me? (looking down at my track pants and faded t-shirt) Me?
He: As long as you wear that smile and have those eyes…
He: Yeah you. Your hair smells good as usual.
Me: I have to go.
He: Did I say something wrong? (pushing his grocery cart along) What the hell is your problem?
He: Is that all you can say? I think you are nice and simple and funny and everytime I say something you go away.
Me: M..er.. well,it’s not like that. I just have to get home fast. Sorry.
(I walk home feeling like a tub of lard)
Day 1: At home
Me: What are you thinking?
You: Just looking at you...
(I blush and my heart beats faster. I want you to hold me and never let me go. Coz I already know all that you want to say…)
There’s a he and a him…Sigh! and then there’s you…
