The girl at the cafeteria

The girl at the cafeteria

A Story by al25

I just saw you the other day eating in the cafeteria with your friends. You caught my eye in that wierd way where I don't want to look away. I didn't know what to do. I desperately wanted to know you but I really didnt know what I was supposed to do. Well I'm kind of lying. I wanted to talk to you but you were with your friends and I couldn't think of anything to say. So I told myself the next time I see you I would talk to you.


I decided to go to the same cafeteria everyday to have lunch. In the hopes that I might see you again. This time I wouldn't be nervous I would come talk to you. I wouldn't be shy. Funnily enough I see you at the same place the next day. This time your here with different friends. I look at you in hopes of catching your eyes. I think you noticed me. I tried to make it clear that I was interested but I couldnt put my finger on how you felt. If you liked me or not.


I dont understand why I was feeling so shy.

I dont know why I felt this way.

It was this wierd feeling like there were butterflies in my stomach.

I felt really weak.

Most of all I was afraid that maybe I wouldnt be able to have you.


Then you get up and leave. I can't believe it. I wasted my chance to talk to you again. But what could I do you were with your friends. I cant just walk up to you and say hi and then ask you out with your friends around. I know I'm making excuses but what could I do. I felt so nervous for the first time ever and i dont know why. Its like I had no control of myself.


Now you keep running through my head eventhough i dont really know you. I have never even spoken to you. I've only seen you twice so why am I still thinking about it. I dont know what to do other than promise myself that the next time I see you I will ask you out no matter what.

When eyes meet and turn to a gaze there is a connection.. I fell in like w/ someone from a distance and I usually am to shy to go for it. That time I did. Six years later-still together. My fiance my best friend and my baby's father.

You should've talked to her. She would've been impressed especially if you made up a really lame excuse to talk to her, that way she'd know it was for her and not the salt or ketchup or whatever. She might giggle and look at you like you're an idiot but she would've liked the attention. She would've said yes. Especially if you were acting all nervous, fyi that's really cute to a girl. Well to me. :D Next time do it.

Oh...I think this is sweet. Sounds like you might have a crush on someone. I hope you gather the strength to talk to her. Lovely story.
