I caught your eyes from across the street. It was startling how an accidental meeting caused such a sudden connection. Glued to the spot, I wonder if I have met you before.
Surely, I know you from somewhere. The feelings you incite remind me of a time long gone when I used to think the world was my fairy tale. If I didn’t know any better, I would think this was love at first.
But you’re just a stranger, I think.
One who can possibly sweep me off my feet and make me believe in happy endings, but a stranger nonetheless.
We both look away, embarrassed by the revelations caused by single glance. I was also afraid by the intensity of the emotions that rushed through me. It’s been awhile since I felt this way.
Then, as if pulled by an irresistible force, my eyes are drawn back to yours. You were calling me.
Or perhaps, I was calling you?
I know you, I really do.
I sieve through the depths of my mind to find that single thought that niggled at the back of my head.
Meanwhile, you were bridging the distance between us.
As you drew closer, that’s when I knew. You were mine before; a long time ago, when I used to believe in love and magic. And… here you are again – where I least expect to see you and when I thought I was way past the age of feeling too much.
I try a wobbly smile and felt it blossom in sync with yours.
“How are you,” I ask with a tilt of my head.
“I thought I was fine but now… I don’t really know. And you?”
“I think I believe in magic again, ” I say.
“And in love at first sight?”
