I was just minding my own business at the park one lazy afternoon when I saw this old but cute couple, walking hand in hand in a slow motion. I couldn't help myself to watch them in awe. I seldom see couples like this nowadays and this made me think about my future.
I was only twenty eight years old and I felt that I had experienced a lot in the past years. Experiences that were very real and left scars in my agonizing soul. While I followed the two with my watchful eyes, I found myself heading to dreamland...
I was about a man who would meet me in unexpected places like the library or a bookstore... or even a church. He could be the perfect yet imperfect man, and the best and the worst person at the same time. But I assure you, he could be the most attractive specie I saw in the entire planet. Well, at least for me.
He would sit down beside me... and maybe... just maybe, I would ignore him at first. Then he would start a conversation like "Hi... I think that is an interesting piece...." Blah, blah, blah... or maybe we would ignore each other and get irritated by each other's presence. Somewhat like a high school thing. But, of course, in the end, we would end up together... dating, sharing dreams, etc... even though it was not the a fairy tale romance like Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty. At least, it is a romantic story which I could tell my future children and grandchildren.
I sighed deeply and snapped myself back to reality. I did not feel optimistic about love in real life. I was just an ordinary person. So plain that people had the tendency to ignore me. Now my question was, how could I get someone love me if nobody would ever take a second look at me? I let out an exhaustive sigh...
But still, at the back of my mind and soul, I would never lose hope. Who knows? Maybe "Hitch" could help me in no time.
Sigh... Just a thought.... just a dream.... again.
