… I turn round the corner, to find her already asleep, curled up, smiling. Her breathing steady and slow.
“You’re beautiful” I whispered, and kissed her goodnight…
I don’t remember how many times i awoke that night, just to see her sleeping, it must have been four or five times, i couldn’t stay awake more than a couple of minutes each time, my eyes, heavy and worn out by the hectic activities of the day before.
My eyes opened, blurry, i blinked a couple of times to wake myself up, my eyes focused, it was her. Her head resting on her arm, her long hair falling over her chin and neck like a fine mist, her deep blue eyes winking at me as the morning sunrise glinted off them.
“Hey..” She whispered softly, so much so that it was barely audible.
“Hi..” I whispered back, propping my head up with my hand, my arm leaning against the warm spot where my head laid moments before.
“Can i suggest something?” She questioned, moving closer, her arms wrapped over my shoulders; tracing their outlines.
Goosebumps race all over my body, in a race to cover my body in the quickest time possible, a chill following them creating slight shivers down my spine spreading throughout the rest of my body.
Stammering over my words in surprise of this unexpected move, “S-S-Sure, what is it hon?”
She grins, her teeth revealing themselves behind her strong and red lips. “I suggest, that we spend the whole day in bed, and do absolutely nothing.”
“Absolutely nothing?” I offered in return.
“Yes, absolutely nothing” Kissing me fully on the lips and rolling me over.
And so we did.

Fallling, falling deeper, bracing for impact…
Thoughts racing through my mind of the past few weeks, wind hurtling past ears pulling my hair to the extremes.
There was no safety net, there was no parachute, there was nothing to slow me down.
It felt like an eternity yet it felt like the briefest of times.
My eyes bursting in tears from the sheer extremity of the situation, i couldn’t handle this, not knowing the outcome.
WHY! I screamed to myself, the wind stealing my voice away from me, unheard to anyone.
Not that there was anyone here.
I saw it approaching, there was no stopping now, there was nothing to prevent this..
This falling for her…
It hit me… hard…
Staring at her long, pale legs, muscular & toned, yet not so much that it is unappealing.
Cute little freckles lining along the curve of her calf, different to any i had seen before, there was something different about her i thought to myself as i looked out the window as the world rushed by.
The train clattering as it always did over the wooden bollards and rails. The sky was an unusual colour today. I looked closer, seeing all the people at a local park, kids, laughing, happy unaware of the world and its troubles.
In a blink, the train picking up pace now, unable to discern between the details on the outside, the only features visible was the sky and its constant unusual colouration.
I looked back to her, she was engrossed in a book. I was unable to read the title, wondering i edged closely, but subtly enough not to look nosy.
She noticed, one eyebrow perched higher than the other. smile forming around the edge of her lips. Her rosy cheeks filling with blood.
“Can i ask what you’re staring at?” she said, her amusement going.
I blushed feverishly, moving back hurriedly hitting my head on the wall behind me. She giggled nervously.
I sighed, she looked at me expectantly for an answer.
Thinking what to say next my mind starts racing, almost as quickly as the train.
She laughed and moved closer, clearly i was taking too long. She kissed me.
Wait, what? I hadn’t expected this!
A hand across my hip against my waist pocket and a kiss once more, the train slowing down to a halt. She pulled away, smiled and grabbed her bag and left.
Now i was confused.
I felt a bulge in my pocket as i raced to the door. That wasn’t there before.
A card with her number written across it.
I sat down, looking out the window once again. To see her long, freckled legs walk down the station stairs.
As I look into the night sky, and see a million stars,
I can’t help but wonder where on earth you are.
You seem so far away to me.
I want to know you care.
Especially because, oh how I love the moments that we shared.
It always saddened me that it had to end this way.
Oh damn people for their destruction,
and how you joined this fray.
You know you mean the world to me,
It’s hard to believe you see,
Just how strong you are,
And all that you can be.
How happy you are,
and how free you can be,
You know you are
the only one for me.
She winks at me.
Wait, she’s winking at me? Why would she do that? Is she winking at me for the same reason i think she is? Is she interested? so many questions!
Oh god. She’s moving closer? What should i say? Should i greet her in some special way?
Palms sweaty, nerves racked to the edge of rawness. The butterfly effect surely must be causing many hurricanes worldwide, their flapping; quick, rapid, constant.
Deep breaths, must stay calm, act yourself, nothing a girl likes more than confidence, psych up man!
She speaks, she smiles, such a radiant smile… Those eyes, so deep, never ending, an amazing shade of blue, as blue as the ocean on a sunny day, on a a tropical island.
My mouth opens, instinctively; it deciding to catch flies instead of fulfilling its usual function.
I look away, where is this shyness coming from? where is my confidence? its disappeared, i must look like such a dork.
She smiles more, brighter than the days sun.
“how are you today?” Small talk? Is it really going this way?
“Uhh g-g-good” i stammer, blushing, these nerves strongly acting to cause further embarrassment.
The bell rings. NO! Not now, i’m feeling the control of my mouth coming back.She looks towards her class, “oh, well i have to go, i’ll talk to you later?”
“uhh y-yeah, sure i, i guess..” smiling weakly looking up at her slowly.
She smiles more, her eyes lighting up. “Perfect”
Bumping into me on her way past i notice my pocket getting heavier, a note.
‘I think i like you.’
Oh god, S-s-she likes me? Oh wow, this, this, this, is great!
But first i need to learn to talk again.
