it’ll be a tuesday.
the sun will be shining, but rain clouds will be looming in the distance.
i’ll see you in line for ice cream on the boardwalk and race towards you.
you’ll turn around when i call your name and your lovely brown eyes will instantly lock with mine.
you were always so good with eye contact.
obviously my heart will skip a beat, but i’ll never let you know.
we’ll talk for hours about school, family, boys, and girls,
just like old friends.
because that’s all we were,
all we are.
maybe we’ll dip our feet into the vast, open ocean,
and it’ll send chills down our spines.
but, maybe, it’ll start to rain,
so we’ll rush back to your car and wait for my sister to come get me.
you’ll laugh at me for still not having my license,
even though “i’m almost there!”
but, i won’t be nervous when my sister doesn’t respond to my text,
because i’ve never felt anything but safe around you.
so, we’ll talk some more and more until i check the time and realize we’ve been sitting here for hours.
finally, you decide to go outside because you just hate sitting around.
at first, i’ll let you stand out there by yourself, the rain beating down on your hair and catching in your eyelashes.
but, my speedy little heart will tell my reluctant brain to just go.
so, i’ll jump out of your car and spin around the parking lot and let the rain soak through my clothes.
then, you’ll take my hand and we’ll spin together just like out of the final scene in a rom-com.
but, my sister will eventually come.
you’ll wrap me in a towel and i’ll go home.
i’ll wash the ice cream stain off my sweater and tell my sister i had an alright time.
maybe i’ll tell my friends about you,
but i’ll probably keep our moment to ourselves.
i guess i’m just selfish like that.
