Alicia & Afra
Destiny is recognizing an opportunity and acting on it.
That’s what she did. She said that she was always aware that I would be her wife.
Afra was the cute girl in the back of the club that I would only imagine walking up to. I could have never walked up to her and said hello my name is…….., let alone ask for her number. But when I saw her, or when she saw me rather, she took my hand in hers and to it she applied a soft gentle kiss. I was embarrassed because I thought that she would feel my pulse and how fast my heart was beating through my hand, but she simply looked into my eyes as I whispered be careful my girlfriend is standing over there.
I know what you’re thinking. Oh she’s a player! Know it wasn’t like that at all. I happened to be in the middle of a horrific breakup but I hate for the general public to be able to see that my home is chaotic or not in order. So I played my part in public and tried my hardest to not disrespect my, at that time, girlfriend.
It would only be two days later when another opportunity at destiny would present itself. It just so happens that the girl, who kissed my hand, was the childhood friend of my dear friend’s girlfriend. So after a horrible argument with my ex, that caused me to leave her at a night club and call my friends in the middle of the night, I decided to spend the weekend at their home. I asked about the club beauty that I had seen the night before. They informed me of the friendship and that they would invite her over the next day.
The next day came and by night fall I was face to face with this club beauty. I was playing hard to get and she was playing right along with me. She was more aggressive than I was but it was all in fun. I guess I wasn’t sending the right signals because shortly after her arrival she decided to leave. When she left our mutual friends told me that I was being difficult and that it seemed as if I was not interested. But I was, I mean to say that I was interested. She intrigued me and I wanted to learn more about her. I called her to come back to our friend’s house and within 15 minutes she was back.
We hung out and talked non stop all night, our friends had gone to bed and we were getting tired so I curled up on my side of the room on a couch and she did the same, on her side of the room. I felt at ease with her. I felt as if I didn’t have to try to be something in order to impress her. I felt that I could just be myself. I asked her to come closer and sit with me. I fell asleep in her arms and for once I felt safe, not alone in this world, and as if everything could possibly one day become normal. Whatever that means………………………
More to come……………….
Love InspirationMy future wife has inspired me to make this commitment. She gives of herself willingly and without effort. It is her second nature to be gentle, loving, and kind. I would like to give her what she has always given me. Unconditional love.
