Second Chance for Love

She took his call on a Thursday asking if she wanted to meet for lunch, her reply was “no.” She worked out at lunch and did not want to disappoint her running partner with not showing up. As they talked they decided on a Friday night meeting for a beer at a small establishment near their homes. Thinking well, at least if it’s a disappointment neither has far to travel home to relish on the evenings smash events.

She began to get ready going through her endless closet thinking to herself, what the heck, I have nothing to wear. After her closet was empty she decided on a yellow sweater and her favorite blue jeans. She then waited, a text message came through on her phone – What time are we meeting? I can’t remember – 6:30 was her response. A moment later came the I’m already here and I have a seat saved for you.

Nervously she grabbed her keys giving herself one last look in the mirror thinking I’m somewhat pretty or average at best – trying to boost her confidence – hoping he’ll think the same. While parking she inhaled deeply thinking to herself, I haven’t done this in years – under her breath she whispers, “God give me the strength to get through the night.”

As she approached the entrance she glanced at herself one last time holding her breath knowing here goes nothing or everything. The bar room is dim, she looks left then right and sees the face she saw from a friends email. She notices a huge bright white smile and brilliant blue eyes glazing back at her. She lets out a sigh of relief and walks towards her new friend.

Comfort takes over as she approaches the bar stool and orders her beer. Conversation picks up and time seems to be standing still. Dinner was fabulous and a movie invite was addressed and taken.

The night lasted into the wee hours of the morning knowing fully she can’t remember the last time she laughed so much or someone made her feel that pretty. It felt like she knew him for years. The night ended with an, “I’d like to call you tomorrow and do this again soon.”

She blushed, accepting his offer.
