He turns and looks at me.
“Hey, I remember you” he says.
“Yeah, from the road the other day.” He smiles. I couldn’t resist smiling back.
“So, you came here alone?” I ask.
“Yeah. Sometimes I just want to be alone.”
There was silence.
“That was your cue to say aww!”
“Oh..I’m sorry” I say awkwardly.
He laughs. “So, I see you came alone as well?”
“No. I came with my two best friends. But I guess I’m alone now.”
We continue to talk for the rest of the night. I honestly cannot describe him. He’s just so down to earth.
Before we know it, it’s midnight. “I should probably be getting home now” I say.
“I’ll drop you home” he says. Is he being serious?
“I really don’t want to bother you” I say.
“Nah, I don’t mind.”
We walk out of the bar, and to his car.
We get to my house.
“Thank you.” I smile.
“Don’t mention it.”
I’m about to get out of the car when Bruno says something.
“Hey Kate, do you mind if I call you sometime?”
Is he seriously asking for my number?!
My heart races and but I don’t want to sound like a fan girl or anything.
“Sure” I say.
I cannot believe how I managed to be so calm.
I give him my number and head to my door step and unlock my door.
I can see that he is waiting till I get inside and close my door.
Does he really care about me?
I get inside and he drives away. I cannot believe what had happened. I never thought that I could easily fall for someone after one night.
Am I really falling for him? Does he like me? Why did he want my number? I have a problem of overthinking.
I get into bed and immediately fall asleep.
I wake the next morning at 11am, with one missed call.
