The One s02e04

She arrived at his house…
After some slight hesitation…
She gathered the little courage she could amass…
And walked towards the door which seemed further than it looked…
Her knees weakened, even more as she got closer…
She managed to keep her balance and ascend the small flight of steps…
The knock swept the living room…
After 3 attempts, she decided to cut her losses and head home…
With one foot out of the gate, the door opened and she turned back…
There he was…
As she tried her best to hide the delight on her face…

***

He opened the door and stared into open space…
She was already on her way…
Swiftly, he was down the steps…
He stared into her innocent eyes, white with a touch of Hazel…
Small cheeks with a half smile…
There was no girl prettier…
So full of life…
He watched as she flicked her hair back…
Gliding off her shoulders and gracefully landing on her back…
He was in awe as his eyes stared from her temple to her feet…
She was in a tight dress, extremely short showing off her long legs…
They were amazing to look at…
She walked forward elegantly, trying not to make his dress move up…
He had lost his voice…
She was the most beautiful piece of art…
Even more beautiful than the art she crafted…
He could never put it into words…
No words seemed good enough…
She played with her fingers and looked down shyly…
He had seen her play hockey…
He had seen her play soccer…
He had watched her every Tuesday…
On a bench, corner of the field…
But he had never looked at her the way he did in this instant…
“Hi, do you want to come in?”, he cut the silence…
“No. I want to head home, looks like its going to rain”, her voice floated into his ears…
She had the sweetest voice…
His heartbeat had never been louder, he wondered if she could hear it…
“I’ll see you off then” and they walked off…

There was a voice coming from a distance…
Hard to ignore and incredibly sharp…
With one eye, he barely..barely peeped…
She was short and annoying…
He turned and faced the other way…
“I’m going to tell mommy that you don’t want to get up”…
She jogged off with half a trot as he covered his head with his sheets…
She had ruined it all…
The perfect dream…
He removed the sheets from his head as if that would help him remember…
Her face was blurred…
He never had dreams…
This was unfamiliar territory…

***

It was almost noon…
The dream was still bugging him…
So many unanswered questions…
Still in deep thought, he startled as his phone rang…
Her name was on the screen…
His mind quickly went back to the blurred face…
It became clearer and clearer…
For a second, he forgot about his ringing phone…
“Hey you”…
The voice tried to sound cool…
“Hi”…
He then heard her stammer something before he continued…
“What a pleasant surprise, so glad to hear from you”…
“I’mm g-g…..gonna come see you today,….evening….later”, she echoed…
His heart jumped out of his mouth…
He acknowledged and swiftly cut the line…
His young sister had been listening to the conversation…
She half-startled him…
“That was good…right?” he queried her with a half grin on his face …
She shook her head and he walked off a disgruntled heap…

Time was flying by…
It was just approaching noon…
She couldn’t get him out of her head…
Slightly peeping at her phone from the side of her eye…
Trying to win a losing battle…
Her brain was factual…
Almost always stating the obvious…
Laying out scenarios all ending in disaster…
She totally agreed…
But still found her hands heading towards her phone…
Finally she got hold of it and dialed…
“Hey you”…
She huskily tried to sound cool…
Her heart beat raced…
Then came the mockery from her brain…
Her fingers shook…
She didn’t picture this happening…
All this within a split second…
Then his voice echoed though her ears…
Taken aback as the guy responded kindly…
It was all stammer after this…
“I’mm g-g…..gonna come see you today,….evening….later”…
She heard some form of acknowledgement and killed the line…
The beep at the end of a call had never been this loud…
The joy made her jump from her seat…
Immediately, she was off to get ready…
