When Perfect isn't good enough
Sunday was good. Woke up bright and early. Especially after an extended session of liver bruising liquids and laughter the previous night. Gave mum quite a shock, when she heard that he was going for Mass. Mums are Mums you see. Walked up to him, and asked,
"So who is it?"
Stupid blush happened.
He replied "Nobody"
She nodded and "hhmmnnned"
So he takes off all shaved and smelling nice, to pick "nobody" up. Upon sighting her, his heart skips a beat. Can't look directly at her. He is just glad that seats don't face one another in cars. They head to this famous old church in the middle of the city. Her fragrance is quite not the thing to be inhaling if one has to concentrate on the road. Manages it somehow. Finds parking and starts the walk to church. It had to be the best feeling of the entire day by far.
During Mass, she leaned over and whispered something in his hear, and he was certain she was smiling. He could sense it. All though the words just didn't register. She was standing too close to him.
Mass done, they head out for breakfast at this landmark eating place for appams and stew. They do a lot of talking. About everything. About nothing. They finish breakfast. She wants to go on a drive. He suggests that they drive out to this multiplex on the peripheral of town, and see if they manage any tickets, being a Sunday. They manage a movie. He is careful to sit leaned to one side. The side away from her. Doesn't want to be giving off any unwanted ideas. Movie got done too. The drive back home was made even more pleasant by the unpredictable weather. It rained. She was all excited.While staring out the window, she unconsciously rested her hand on his shoulder. He had trouble breathing.And then he could breathe again.The hand was off.
He dropped her off at her place, and drove back home replaying the entire day in his head. He felt it went quite well.
When his mobile beeped to let him know that a messaged had arrived. He looked at it when he reached home. It was from her.
"If the day wasn't as perfect as it was, I would have met you again.....!!!!!"
