Personal Narrative My Experience With Love At First Sight

1059 words - 4 pages

I listen to the constant roar of motors as the dirt bikes and go-carts race around the small track behind me. For a few (usually uneventful) hours every Tuesday, I work at the ticket and rider registration booth; collecting money and making everyone sign the if-you-die-you-can’t-sue-us forms. As usual, I was signing in a few riders and spectators at my station; as I listened to my ipod in one ear I completed my task that I had done hundreds of times before. However, this time something distracted me, something that made me lose my rhythm in completing the current customer’s registration. That something turned out not to be the usual bike, go-cart, or anything with a gas or break. That something turned out to be a guy. He stood in the line and watched the motocrossers lay the bikes sideways in the air and land it, making it look easy as pie. However, at that moment I couldn’t have cared less about the motocross race going on right next to me, there could have been a massive bike pile up and it wouldn’t have brought me out of this odd trance. Regarding looks, he seemed absolutely perfect. His skin was a nice tan probably from riding in the sun, his eyes were piercing blue and he was the perfect height. I quickly realized that I had been ignoring the customer that I was currently helping, and kept stealing glances his way to take another look. I finished up the current customer and sent him on his way, probably wondering why this girl was so distracted the entire time. Never the less I worked through the next customer quickly in order to have a chance to talk to this mysterious guy. I kept stealing glances over at him until finally it was his turn to be signed in. As he walked up I met his gaze and he smiled. He looked even more beautiful than before with his perfect white teeth and mouth forming a smile that could liven up a stadium full of people. I was immediately taken back, speechless and growing slightly nervous that I would end up doing something embarrassing and I would never see him again. Unfortunately, I was correct in my assumption that I would embarrass myself, however I would continue to see him every week. I looked forward to just seeing his face or hearing his voice even if our conversations were all too short. Quickly, these short conversations that consisted of hello, good luck and a small joke were no longer satisfying. So one fateful day, I mustered up my courage and talked to him after the race. His mind turned out to be even more beautiful than his looks. We continued to talk for a few weeks and grew very close, seeing each other outside of the usual Tuesday night races. After about a month, we began dating, and I still couldn’t possibly believe this perfect guy could be mine, I didn’t deserve someone this good. However, I...
