Sitting on the terrace of the café
My eyes lock with his
He smiles my way and I smile back
I see him reading a book I just finished and walk over to him
Hey, don’t mean to interrupt but that’s a good book
Yes it is he says, I can’t put it down
I felt the same way reading it I say
Anyway sorry to disturb you
I get excited seeing someone with the same taste in books
He smiles and I see something weird in his eyes
I can tell he gets uneasy
Ok, well have a good lunch I say and turn to walk away
Hold on he says and I stop
You seem like a cool girl and all but you are not my type
Excuse me I ask confused
Well………….he stutters. Just like my friends say they do not deal with white chicks
I do not go for black ones, no offense
I burst out laughing not sure what to say to this fool who has the same taste in books as me
Dude, no offense I say. Do you think I was trying to pick you up?
What an ego, oh by the way no offense taken
Why will I be offended by someone so ignorant that can’t find a better way
To talk to a lady even if what he implies was the case
Why will I be offended by the fact that someone that has the same likes as me
Could be so full of himself.
Well at a second glance I have to say he deserves to be full of himself
He Is like a freaking Greek God
I now doubt myself
Did I walk over here because of the book or the dude?
He can tell I am having a self debate going on and wants to say something
When he gets interrupted by the arrival of my guest and I see he is in shock
Yeah, I silently say enjoying the look in his eyes
He may be Poseidon but my dude is freaking Zeus.
