#50DaysCountDownTo2015 – DAY 38. Written by Oluwaseun Opemipo Ojewale
I walk into a room and I look around, I see everyone and at the same time see no one. My eyes are fixed on one particular person, it’s seems she has a hold on me. As I keep staring, she turns and I can swear I’ve seen no better movement than that. She looks at me and it feels like I can read her through her eyes. It’s as if I’ve been laid bare to her.
I start towards her with no control over my own body, my mind has switched on auto pilot and there is nothing to be done about it. She sees me coming over and she gives me a pleasant enticing smile, I swear I almost crumbled on the spot but hell I find myself walking faster. I get to her and I can swear I’m out of words but for the first time in my life my mouth talks without the help of my brain.
I can feel my heart pumping faster, I can feel the blood in my veins actually boiling up, I know there is an AC on but I feel as if I’m sweating as if I’ve been dumped in a sauna. For some reason unknown to me I’m still standing there and talking, but it feels like I’m watching from inside myself, the person talking to her is calm and collected, he’s articulate and witty, he’s interesting and actually funny to her.
Truth be told, this isn’t the first time I’ve seen her, not the second or third but rather a long time. I’ve strategized on how I’m gonna say hi for the first time a million times in my head but I haven’t grown the balls to actually do it, so now I guess you can understand my sudden overwhelming feeling that it’s impossible I’m talking to her.
I look over to where my friends are for just a second and I can see them stunned by my sudden boldness.I turn my attention to her and without a doubt I can say I’ve seen no creature more stunning. The way she twirls her hair when she’s amused, the way her lips curls her mouth when she smiles. Her laughter is breathtaking, her eyes are simply magical. I wondered what her lips would taste like, what it would feel like to hold her and sway slowly to a classic romance song.And suddenly someone slaps me across the back, I’m still standing at the door. This is just one of my millions ways this might have gone if I had the guts to go up and say ‘HI’. 🙂
