all it took was a wink-smile combo.
after a long stressful weekend, i just wanted to chill and breath. asked a few friends if they wanna hang out but everybody chose to go home and get their much needed sleep. i was tired myself and can go home but my mind wants to wander first before dozing off to dreamland. i don't normally go out alone, its just not my thing. but for tonight, it'll be an exception.
a coffeeshop would be a safer choice for someone going solo, but coffee will just kill my sleepiness. so i drove myself to the nearest bar. upon arriving at the entrance, i took a deep breath trying to exhale all worries since this will be a first. i seldom go for a drink, much more go for a drink alone. took another step and smiled at the girl.

i was worried someone would actually stand up and join me. i wasn't planning to do that. thankful no one did.
but there he was, with his friends? i guessed. i saw him when i came in. now he's taking glances. feeling that the alcohol's effect has alreedy kicked in, i just stared. no smiles, atleast not from our lips, just quick glances, eyes have their way of talking. wverytime our eyes would meet, i'd admit i was holding back a grin. i'd looked down so he won't see i was actually smiling. it was weird haha.
