Day 4 of Writing 101. The One.


I remember the first word you said to me, the smile on your face the night you started this rollercoaster. You just had a haircut and you looked more handsome than I had  ever noticed. Your whole six feet, slim fair body.

I was in my usual reserved and quiet mode, replying most of your comments with a smile, perhaps because of lack of words or because your words didn’t stir me up. I don’t know where you got your portions from because, you hacked my code.


We became reading partners; your company was enough to make me read because you motivated me to work harder even though I’d always been a couch potato. You advised me about everything. You did everything to make me happy. Alas, I wasn’t into myself anymore, you helped me explore a different kind of person I could be, if I wanted to. You introduced me to the society. I was happier and glowing. My friends said it was a sign I was in love but it wasn’t true. I was on alert to make sure my emotions doesn’t take over my brain because we became fond of eachother.

I was excited that cool evening, you wanted to talk. I wondered about what. It was that stony night you made the rules, “Nothing will ever happen between us.”

I wondered why it was worthy of discussion because I wasn’t expecting anything to happen, I was enjoying and taking advantage of the moment.
