Chapter 1. First Date

“what’s your favorite fruit”
he asked…
i answered –
“peaches”
“peaches”
he repeated  with a smile,
reaching for his cup of coffee…
i looked at his hands…his fingers
were long and slender
like that of a female
and yet when he held
mine i felt his strength…
i was awkward…
but i couldn’t help smiling
at the thought
of getting to know
this person in front of me…
he seemed to be
warm and caring…
i wonder how it would be
like to be loved by someone
as warm and as caring
as he was…he seemed
of a gentle nature…
“so what’s your favorite color”
he asked, after taking that sip…
i looked up at him and said
“yellow”
“yellow”
he repeated…
“yellow and peaches…
they go together don’t you think?”
he said…
and this time it was my turn
to smile…
“they do” i answered…
he looked away…
we sat quietly…
he broke the silence
by taking my hand into his…
he looked at me intently
and said
“you should smile more…
you’re more beautiful
when you smile”
and just like that,
i couldn’t help but smile…
i was smiling for him…

    1. thank you…i think first dates are almost always awkward especially since the parties are still trying to get to know each other 🙂

  1. “you should smile more…
    you’re more beautiful
    when you smile”

    i couldn’t help but smile…
    i was smiling for him…
    my heart was smiling…
