Beautiful Attraction

The street party was exciting.
There were food-stalls and plenty of fun-events.
They had invited the city's most important people.
She felt privileged to have got a pass.
She was enjoying herself when she saw him...

She was seeing him after nearly a decade.
He looked smart and handsome as usual.
He had always made her go weak in her knees.
She did not want him to see her.

To escape his attention, she covered her face with her hands and continued to stand on the stage.

He came close and admired her beauty thinking that she was a statue!

  4. After nearly a decade, just seeing him would be a huge trigger. I'm glad she was able to avoid him if she didn't want him to see her.

  5. If she wants to get over him, being recognized would probably have opened old wounds. It doesn't speak for him that he thinks she's a statue.

  6. Old flames disturb immensely!

  7. I remember the days of having crushes on guys. Hopefully I wasn't so obvious about it. This guy is not worth her salt, thinking her a statue.

  8. I saw a FB meme about congratulating the 400,000 people who kept quiet for 50 years while faking the moon landing. It was sarcastic but made a point.
