Two days past by normally, I saw the guy couple of times each day and all we did was smile. To be honest, I was kind of waiting for him to approach me and say something. A simple “Hi” would’ve been enough for me. But I am a cheesy romantic. I think I’ve watched way too many romantic comedies and chick flicks. A girl can dream, but the reality is never what you want it to be.
The next morning I was sitting at a lobby, guess what was I doing? Exactly, waiting for him. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a stalker, but if you want something to happen you gotta do it yourself. At least that’s what I tell myself. I was sitting down there since 6 am and it was already 8. Two hours of sitting at lobby watching YouTube videos and once in a while laughing so loud that I think security guards were considering to ask me to leave.
I was so bored that I decided to give up. Maybe he already checked out of the hotel or decided to stay in his room all day. Either way, it was no luck for me. I went back to my room and to go to the elevators I have to go behind a corner. They are like hidden or something. So you can’t see people coming out of the elevators unless they are ten feet away from them.
As I was taking a left turn (behind that bloody corner, I call it bloody because I always bump into that wall, don’t ask me, I don’t know why) I accidentally bumped into someone. Not in the wall for the first time but into an actual human being.
But again, no luck for me, the person spilled a hot coffee all over my white dress. Good day to wear white, Miranda. (Note the sarcasm?) As I looked up in horror I realized it was the same guy I was checking out for three days already. He of course apologized a dozen of time and tried to find some tissues so I could clean up but I being my idiotic self said it’s okay, though it wasn’t. That was my favorite dress and now it’s brown.
But he wouldn’t just leave me without a proper apology. First, I had no idea what he meant. And then he awkwardly offered to pay me breakfast… as an apology. I was seriously smiling like an idiot. That moment I felt like I’m in the most cliché movie ever. He was hot and the only thing hot about me was the coffee on my dress.
I of course accepted. Immediately. Like he didn’t even finish the sentence and I already said yes. Don’t do it. For God’s sake. That is way more embarrassing than a spilled coffee on your clothes. He was just chuckling and smiling a little.
I went to my room to change. I said it would be quick but I wasn’t so sure anymore because I had no idea what to wear! I don’t know if he likes trendy or sporty girls. Maybe he’s into goth’s? Don’t laugh at me, I was having a normal teenager crisis at that point.
I ended up wearing casual clothes, jeans and a tank top (nop, not the kind of tank top that reveals your belly button) and some accessories.
We met again downstairs. The breakfast turned into something more than just breakfast. We ended up spending the whole day together. Just shopping, eating, taking pictures, laughing a lot, walking around Paris. It was like from a movie. Man, I am so cliché, aren’t I?
I learned a lot about him. His name is Tobias, he’s the same age as me and I know how much of a coincidence it has to be but he’s actually from the same country as me. Seriously guys, I was more shocked than you are right now (hopefully xD).
I don’t have a hard time making friends with strangers but with Toby it was so easy to talk to, to laugh with. You know, there are just those people who you can just be you from the moment you meet them and you can feel that you like them and they like you and that the friendship (in this case hopefully something more) will be real. And I felt that with him. Even though if we’re not going to be more than friends, I can deal with it. I like him. He’s the type of person who’s down to Earth and reasonable. Like Kyle is or maybe I already should say was because the past two days he’s been ignoring me and attending to business meetings with my dad.
I spent the rest of the week with Tobias. I left the hotel two days before he did and let me tell you, it was the best few days I have had in my entire life. Now we’re here. Where I am now. You know what happened last week and I hope you will stick around to find out what will happen next because I’m really looking forward to finding out myself. Let’s hope it’s something exciting.
Kiss Kiss, Lovers
