Hey, I said. I cushioned my startled face of mine with the three letters.
H..EE..Y! she replied. I couldn’t imagine how I moved from fantasy to ecstasy in no order. Tall! Creamy chocolate, lol. And funny make-up. She had every right to be beautiful in a fringe. That was my conclusion. A spec! She is a spec in my eye already. I won’t admit and I won’t let it go.
Immediately in my head, I told myself,
“This territory is mine and stranger, I haven’t even seen you with Bissi before.”
So I acted it out and she got drowsy. My love potion! She fought back but lost the battle before she even started fighting. The day ended with jokes and I kept my little secret to myself. That night, I mapped out my plans for the week.
“Bore her out”
“no collateral damage”
What a mission! I didn’t even plan evac.
The semester began and she needed somewhere to stay. Only if I was capable to host her or get her a place. However, I tried to link up with friends and one option clicked. Stay two buildings away from the North wing of my room.
I didn’t see it happening but love was already arranging things. I sat in front of my room on one of those days when my roommate needs to exercise some rare muscles. There I thought about my future as a writer and ended up with a lawyer.
It didn’t last, as I could hear Bissi’s voice come around, she screamed, there are noodles. Good for me! I rushed down there and saw her again! She came to greet me and won’t eat but I was already asking for meat until I saw her.
There, she cringed in her sheepish mocking laughter. Armageddon is happening! I told myself, unknown to me that TEM’s sister is right. She is good-looking, a bit older and nice.
Trust me, everyone has gotten their weaknesses! That aside, she predicted our bond and we quickly rebuked it. Bissi could feel my shift away from her but was happy that I was getting engaged. I was lost in the Euphoria of Being in Love only for Bissi to get entangled with Euphoria in person.
Two weeks in a row, I kept checking on the north wing and messaging her. The equation couldn’t have been more symmetrical as we were both Nocturnal. Midnight messages and being there for her was a trigger to ask for her heart. She is not the one to lose her guard, is it the right time to ask her out? How do I ask out? Online or in her face? I just had it all in my head. What do I do?
