Damn this weather. I walked quickly trying to escape the rain as the cold wind nipped at my skin, triggering goose bumps to erupt all over my arms. I had forgotten to bring a jacket to protect myself from the droplets of rain that rolled freely down my bare skin.
Shivering, I wrapped my arms around myself to keep my body heat as a gust of wind blew in my direction making it harder for me to breathe. I looked around searching for a warm place to briefly stay. From the corner of my eyes, I caught site of a deserted café that was named Coffee Express and ran towards the shop shelter. I ran as fast as humanely possible, in hopes to escape the rain. I carried on running motivating myself to ...view middle of the document...
"Tough day?" a man said with a soft, delicate voice. The question popped out of nowhere and I woke up out of my slumber. With blurred vision, I rubbed my eyes with the back of my hands and stretched out my arms above my head, wincing at the bright lights surrounding me. I glanced forward with squinted eyes searching and struggling to find the owner of the voice. "I'm over here, " said the unidentified man.
Swiftly, I turned around, the young man was dressed neatly in a collared shirt with the first button casually opened. He wore black skinny jeans that were fitted around his thighs and an apron was placed around on hips, not that I was staring at him or anything.
The unnamed man peered at me with his chocolate-brown eyes that sparkled under the lights, making him seem like an angel sent from heaven, hypnotizing me instantly. He lifted his hand and brushed the hair that slipped into his face and I resisted the urge to brush my finger through the silky stands of his hair. A smile adorned his face causing wrinkles to appear at the corner of his crescent-shaped eyes adding a hint of cuteness to the his face. The young man appeared to be roughly 25, maybe only a few years older than me. I was intrigued by his beauty and the innocence that radiated from his entire being.
"Helllooooo" the young man said, waving a hand in front of my face, interrupting me of my thoughts. The stranger peered at me and I felt as if I was naked, my face flushed a bright red, quickly becoming embarrassed at how I had been caught openly gawking at the stranger. I quickly darted my gaze to the ground, hoping to hide my embarrassment. The said man then brought his pale hands up to my chin and drew my head up. "Don't hide your face, your cute".
If it was even possible my cheeks turned an even deeper shade of red, i was secretly wishing that the ground would just swallow me up whole. The man seemed pleased at my reaction and let out a small chuckle that lead to full-blown laughter. I huffed in response, annoyed that this man whom I did not know was laughing at me. After over a minute of intense laughter, he began to acknowledge my annoyance and calmed down.
"I'm sorry, it's just that you look like an adorable puppy when you're embarrassed". I furrowed my eyebrows at his reply, not appreciating being called 'an adorable puppy'. "An adorable wet puppy" he repeated, a small smile appeared on his face. I furrowed my eyebrows in confusion, I was NOT a wet puppy.
Unexpectedly, he grabbed my hand causing me to let out a gasp, his hands felt warm, compared to my icy cold...
