|I remember you.|
Your face innocent as always.
Your makeup, understated for your beauty.
Oh how your tresses fall perfectly over your shoulders.
I remember you twirling your hair around your fingers.
Your loving gaze.
& your relaxed stance.
How you shift your weight to one side, daydreaming.
I recall the favorite taunting tilt of your head.
The unknowing pout plastered across your face when you're unhappy.
Even when you're upset, you never cease to amaze me.
The whole room lights up when you enter.
Your natural beauty.
|Upon closer inspection, he looks more captivating. His deep blue eyes staring intensely afar, lost in his train of thoughts. His eyebrows arching gracefully upwards, casting a slight frown, making him looks confused and possibly amused even. Amused at what? Naomi was interested to find out. Her gaze shifted to his strong jawline, then to his boyish haircut.|
|The script started playing out of the blue. Naomi panicked. Hurriedly rummaging through her puse, she found her phone. No incoming calls, she was bewildered. Trying to find the captivating young man again, she caught sight of him answering his phone. Her heart stopped a beat, same ringtone? Her mind drifted and filled itself with romantic fantasies from her collection of romance novels.|
Stop it, you're being ridiculous. Her subconscious chided.
But then again, if you don't take a risk, you'll never know.
|Sometimes, lady luck might be on your side.|
Follow your heart.
"He looks ___ with his youthful, tousled hair. There is something boyish about him, which makes him look younger than he is" - Haruki Murakami
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
