I’m not a night life guy at all.
Whenever my friends invite me?
I just pass on them.
Even though party girl energy is like crack to me.
Despite this fact here I was out late on a Saturday evening. I was standing at the bus stop at 12:30 am waiting for the bus so I could head home.
That was when I encountered her.
The raven haired girl with the Scottish accent.
Nice tight jeans.
Stark eyeliner just like I love it.
Never one to miss an opportunity I began a conversation. I told her she was in luck because the bus was due to arrive in about 10 minutes.
She thanked me and immediately?
I was intrigued by her unique accent.
Ever since I took that course on teaching English?
I am totally into international girls.
I asked her where her accent was from and what had brought her to Canada. Turns out she’s a wanderer and has already checked Australia and New Zealand off her bucket list.
As we got on the bus?
We continued to chat together.
I asked her if it was okay to sit with her.
As the bus was approaching my stop I knew it was now or never. I told her, “You seem nice. Would you be up to catching a seawall walk sometime soon?”
“That’s one of my favorite things!” she told me.
I pulled out my phone to get her number.
She entered it.
Then I sent her a quick text to confirm.
And it didn’t work!
I’m so naïve and genuine of course it didn’t occur to me she could be deliberately giving me a wrong one. She checked the number and it turned out a couple of the digits had been reversed.
Was she putting me off?
Not really interested?
She seemed pretty open.
I guess time will tell when I try to cue up our walk.
After making sure she was okay with a hug?
We hugged and I said goodbye to her.
What do you think guys? Is it worth taking a minute to be friendly and get to know a girl like I did here even if it turns into nothing more than a pleasant fleeting midnight rendezvous?
