1208 words - 5 pages

Theme: I only hope that one day I will have the same feeling of intuition as I had that night, to forget about my life and just go out and have a little fun. It might turn out to be one of those nights, one of those magical nights.Grammer and punctuation are a little off.The night was clear and the moon was yellow and all the stars were shining brightly in velvet sky. The year was 1999, almost the end of summer. I was arriving at my last party before I would eventually become a senior in high school. I really didn't feel like attending the bash. I had just gotten in an argument with my Father not to mention I really had had a hard day at work. I felt disappointed and tired yet I felt as though something incredible would take place if I were present, so I talked myself into going. I was wearing my black leather pants with a white dress shirt and sporting a new hairstyle, short but not to short. I was disappointed at first, just sitting there outside, alone talking with my friends about meaningless matters, thinking of calling it a night and going home. But I had yet to realize that this was the night I first gazed upon her innocent eyes. She was the most gorgeous girl I had ever seen in my life.I admired her from afar, her long dark-brown hair, her picture perfect face and that special sparkle in her eyes. She was just so perfect, only wearing blue jeans and a red shirt. I was only seventeen then, and I had never seen such beauty up close. As I fixed my eyes on her she was being accompanied by what I thought at that moment was her boy-friend, and then our eyes locked together. We looked intently at each other for what seemed an eternity. Even her friend must have seen the link; he waved his hand in front of her which immediately broke any connection we had. She turned instantaneously away, and I just sat there with my eyes wide open in disbelief at the sheer elegance I had seen. I followed her with my eyes so attentively, and then I thought to myself-- no chance-- forget it-- she's too dazzling for me. So I went on talking with my friends, but this time I wasn't listening to a word they were saying -- just thinking about that girl and her splendor.Precisely at that moment everyone stated to dance, I sat there thinking of retreating but my intuition told me not to leave. As I stared across the way there she was rejecting an offer to dance, not once, not twice but three different times with, in my opinion, three good looking guys. Just then my friend Laurence asked me to go inside and I thought to myself, sure why not? So there I was once again sitting alone, Laurence had gone outside to get us something to drink.He came in all excited and exclaimed "Carlos, the girls have been talking about you outside. One in particular was asking about you and your information name, age, height, measurements. I told her who you were and how cool you are."I just started laughing "Your crazy, man. Who the heck would be talking about me," I said."I'm serious, man....
